    If elected President, I will initiate a massive digging project to reshape the Earth to look like this

    Thanks Greece :lol:.

    Don't look up "The Cabbage Soup" either. I watched it when I was a kid, and even I realized it was trash ^^.

    That map about films is the only way Pahrump will ever be featured in an OT map.

    This is a much better version of the above:

    Are those flooded areas below sea level?

    "The flooded areas" are simply a map of the Mediterranean superimposed on Australia. I can't imagine that more than half of an entire continent is below sea level.

    That's the actual map. Otherwise there would be no logical explanation for the fact that all Australian tennis players other than Lleyton Hewitt have Greek surnames.

    I was never much of a drinker (and haven't drunk alcohol for something like... 18 years). But I did like some cognac.
    Actually, the only two such drinks I liked were cognac and cherry liqueur. At uni I used to drink a shot of vodka at the pub there, but never really liked it.

    You used to drink the pub? Wow.
    This thread does not negotiate with errorists, so what do you want?

    Not sure if it is correct, but the site says it is about diaspora of citizens (ie not just ethnic background), and about global diaspora, not just in the Eu.
    If correct it is pretty impressive, in a negative way, for Greece (given the entire population of citizens is 11 million) and of course Bulgaria and Romania. Bulgaria is simply decimated (iirc it has less than 9 million citizens anyway). Romania has something like 20 million, iirc.

    That said, not sure what is going on with Portugal. Brazil or some dual citizenship issue?

    This map would be more useful if it was in percentages :/.
    Like it's roughly the same for Germany and the Netherlands (~5-6%), but looks totally different, whereas Germany looks similar to Northern Africa, but Germany has twice the amount of citizens.

    Possibly, but don't I recall @innonimatu complaining on one of the Brexit threads a couple of months back about how a lot of (young) Portuguese have buggered off to work in northern Europe: UK, The Netherlands, Germany, etc.?

    I was quite curious about the UK and Germany's numbers. So I looked it up:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_diaspora

    Of course, I already knew that (for now!) there were/are around 2 million of us Brits scattered across the EU27: the Wiki page shows (from 2006) about 820,000 (retired?) in Spain/Portugal; with another 606,000 total in Ireland, France, and Germany; <50,000 each in Switzerland, Benelux and Scandinavia (excl. Finland); and <10,000 in each of the other EU countries.

    Of the other 2.9+ million, though, very few of them appear to have ventured beyond the Anglosphere: Aus = 1.3 million, USA = 675,000, Canada = 600,000, and NZ = 215,000 (= ~2.795 million); if we also include the 200,000 in S.Africa, that's already pretty close to that total.

    But I wonder where all those 4 million Germans have gone? According to this

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_diaspora

    ....there's only about 700,000 combined, in Switzerland, The Netherlands and Austria, plus another 90,000 or so in the UK. So where are the other 3.2 million? They surely aren't all running dive-shops in the tropics...?

    I'm not sure that number is still accurate. Millions of portuguese left the country in the final years of the dictatorship regime, mostly to France. But that was about 50 years ago. Thins improved a lot after it was overthrown.

    More recently our previous government managed to impose "austerity" fully backed by the EU and managed to drive away a few hundred thousand. Together with the former emigrants still abroad it may make up some two million yes. The flow out of the country has been somewhat reduced but still continues. The "economic recovery" is all about agriculture and serving tourists, not very appealing even jobs when they are well paid, and the current government allowing business owners to employ large numbers of underpaid brazilians and south asians.
