You don't have a cathedral in your village, then?
I never found Taco John's as gassy or greasy as Taco Bell. If you ever do come across one, try the potato olés.
I don't think their branding is bad, but it might just be because I grew up with it.
Besides, who in America would think to buy donuts and coffee from a hockey player?
I didn't even know Tim Horton was a hockey player until recently! But the name of the chain is actually Tim Hortons, so in my mind it's not related to the hockey player at all - who's name was Tim Horton. Not Tim Hortons! I don't know who that is. If there was an apostrophe there, it would make sense, but there isn't, so I am forced to assume that it's a poorly ran franchise named by idiots. Might as well call your franchise MATT DAMON
Yeah, I'm sure by now you can tell that I don't frequent this place. The coffee gives me the poops and their donuts taste like plastic. Plus they don't understand the basics of the English language.
Funnily enough, no. British cathedrals tend to be found in cities.
Tech companies in my town. Covers a variety of firm sizes.
I always liked Galway. As a name, I mean. It sounds nice. Galway.
I would hope that you pronounce the 'Gal' as in gall-stone.
That's how I pronounce it.
Whilst we're on the topic of fiendishly complicated pronunciations (I'm looking straight at you, Irish Gaelic), I assume that Connacht is is pronounced "Con-naut" (at least, that's how I've always pronounced it).
Jeez, you're just scaring the gals away!
The spread of agriculture (as well as migrating farmers who brought it) in prehistoric Europe, in years before present:
Few populations of farmers expanded to Europe from Anatolia, the Near East (through Anatolia), and maybe also from North Africa:
Compared to percent of ancestry from European hunter-gatherers who had lived in Europe before farmers came, by region:
It's called West European Hunter as it's based on DNA extracted from bones of several prehistoric hunters buried in West Europe.
But as you can see today this ancestry actually peaks (45% - 50%) mostly among North-East Europeans, Finns and Balts:
Other groups with high % of prehistoric European Hunter-Gatherer ancestry inside them, include for example:
Belarusians 43.1%, Norwegians 42.8%, Scottish 42.8%, Ukrainians 38.7%, English 36.4%, Czechs 33.8%, Croats 29.3%, Basques 29.3%.
Sami people from northern Finland have probably absolutely the highest % of "West" European Hunter-Gatherer ancestry - 57%.
Area for living space, as needed by various nations:
Damn, Germany isn't in there, can't make a "Lebensraum" joke .
And yeah, Bangladesh is crammed like hell.
I wonder what mongolia would look like...
They could have varied the Dunmer insults a little.
the map maker's a proper swit
I used to draw maps like you...
... then I developed RSI of the fingers for typing tedious memes.
