BigLuca: aagrajag:You got me. I owe you a beer if you ever find yourself in Nagano.Well, I don't think I'll ever travel to China, but if I do I'll take you up on that beer!:-P
aagrajag: BigLuca: ThunderChild: So they're having problems with finding strangers in the Alps?You are mixing up Australia with Austria, which seems to be a common mistake for some reason. One has Barbies and boxing kangaroos and the other has leather pants and Hitlers. They both start with "Austr", but one ends quickly with a "ia" and the other kinda stretches out. They have similar names because Austrailia was settled by prisoners from Austria and they wanted to make it feel like home, but that was a long time ago (in the BC era) so they people evolved over generations to become shrunken dark dudes with bones in their noses and no shirts (or "Outbacks") to better survive the harsh desert like conditions. And finally, Australia is almost twice the size of Austria and about 1,000 miles away (in any direction cause it's on the other side of the Earth).New here, huh? It 's a "thing" to deliberately confuse the two.

hogans: Theaetetus: I wonder if we have the same problem in the states... anyone know of a name that's shared by a town and county where the town isn't in the center of the county?How about Essex, Massachusetts?
