    Just wondering where most people on this forum are from. Obviously most will be from America. When I first came on I just assumed everyone was from the UK so I want to know more specifically now.

    I didn't think so; I thought it would be a mixed bag.

    Besides that: it is nice to talk to people from elsewhere.

    Wow, with only Canada, the US and the UK, the rest of world is going to be really a large sampling, Europe, Asia, Africa, etc...

    World is not restricted to Earth, I presume.

    What if I was born somewhere, I live somewhere else, but aim at becoming a citizen of yet another class in your poll ? (that's really true)

    I swear. Always got to be difficult don't you. It's funny.

    Sorry humanino, according to this poll, you are in the "rest of world". I guess the "rest of the world" doesn't count as much as the countries specifically mentioned. But at least you are in fine company. :cool:

    Do you have those idioms :
    "The pot that calls the kettle black"
    "One donkey chides the other for being a long-ear"
    "The donkey called the rooster a fathead"
    "An armadillo telling a turtle it is too hard shelled"
    ?
    You know, being from the rest of ze world, I speak difficult :tongue2:

    I wasn't specifically talking about you, but you are right. I am ashamed and I prostrate myself and beg forgiveness.
    Edit: almost said prostate, and spell checker would have let me.

    Didn't someone previously try a poll similar to this one, and they tried break-downs to include as many countries or areas or continents, and it all got controversial and messed up? :rofl: This is a loaded subject, I think.

    This is debatable even geography wise :tongue2:

    I should have put more English speaking countries like Australia and New Zealand. But they're more like holiday resorts than actual countries so they don't count :)

    This must be BY FAR the dumbest poll ever

    I disagree. This is far less dumb than "who is the greatest scientist ever"
    Einstein !
    No ! Newton !
    No ! Socrates !
    No ! Kaku !
    ...
    No ! Zz ! <---- to which everybody eventually agrees on PF :smile:
