I thought England, Britain, and the UK were all the same thing.
I thought Sydney was the capital of Australia.(Why is it always referred to when they mention australian government stuff?)
Canada has 32.4 million people, last I checked (couple years ago).
You didn't mention India, which also has a huge population(I don't know how much, exactly).
Fact: Canada has roughly 3 people per kmē.
Fact: 88% of Canadians hate bush.
Older Fact: 40% of Canadians hate american corporations.(survey was a while ago...shouldn't this be higher?)
Older Fact: Canada has the largest petrolium and natural gasses reserves in the world. As global warming increases, the tundra will melt and all of these gasses will be released, skipping about 26 years of global warming.(old estimate - may be higher or lower. Either way, get out your sun-screen. )
kramy; England is a country. Great Britain (or Britain) is a somewhat geographical term used to refer to the mainland area of the United Kingdom (England, Scotland and Wales). The United Kingdom is a political term: a collection of countries bound by the same constitution and sharing the same monarch and to some extent government. It includes England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands, Gibraltar, etc. Scotland and Wales now have their own Parliament and Assembly (respectively) which have a fair amount of power. So it gets fairly complicated.
In case you were wondering, Southern Ireland or Eire is a completely seperate country - most people get confused with the Irelands.
Oh, and by the way, I don't want to get into a debate about global warming but it is just a theory with no real evidence to back it up. Earth's temperature has been shown to fluctuate rapidly ever since time began. I just get annoyed when people present it as fact, as it isn't... yet
Pete: Hmm...didn't know that. Well, I suppose there's things about Canada that many people don't know too.
Global Warming: It's not a fact that the tundra will actually melt, but it is a fact that if the earth heats up too much(and the tundra melts) it will happen. Slightly different.(Since we don't know if the tundra will totally melt, or stop melting...etc.) Although right now it is melting at the edges.
And yes, I confess to my ignorance of most of the world.
There are two possible ends of the world right now.
One is that the earth will endure a sudden total climate
change toward heat and the ice caps will melt and flow
all over the world, which would cause serious problems.
The other is that there is a massive lake of freezing water
in Canada. If it breaks the land mass containing it, it will
flow all over the world, and the cold water coating the
oceans will cause the world to freeze over.
Take your pick. The answer comes saturday! (JK)
-Above post is ancient and probably irrelevant-
An old account of mine, recently cleared out. It's a blast to the past, the age was marked as 14 when I found it. If you know where to look, you can track me. Au revoir.
"You didn't mention India, which also has a huge population"
i did mention india but i didnt mention what their population is.
lets see its about 1.06 billion.
actually i have a thought about the americas,
the term america stands for the two continenets, north and south america
and each country has its own name, yet when people talk of america or americans they are almost always in my experience refering to the united states of america.
ever noticed? why do you think that it?
Dustin: Yes, more water can fit than ice. The only problem with that is many sections of ice float on water because the ice has no holes in it(that normally let the ice sink slightly(or lots, in the case of ice bergs(though ice bergs don't have holes so much as just not being flat))).
Here's a fact about Australia...the new Miss Universe is an Aussie.
Hell, she use to be a cheerleader for my favourite rugby league team! UP THE KNIGHTS...cough ah yes...I got a bit carried away there.
