A geography lesson...

I have noticed that many here report on events in exotic locations w/out really knowing what they are talking about. As an educational aid I submit the following, and it is only a couple minutes long: 5min - Animaniacs: a Fun Lesson on Geography - Video

Should we point out that San Juan, Asia and Transylvania are not "Nations of the World".

Maybe not.

You are undoubtedly an expert of some kind, on Lawrence, Kansas, but it is quite clear the above quoted statement applies to you more than just about anyone else here.

Nonetheless, this does not prevent you from regaling us with your opinion on every subject under the sun whether or not anyone is interested.

You are exactly like the taxi drivers in the black cabs all over London, in that way.

Oi!

Leave it to ol' bear to point out the obvious--and the negative. I think the rhyming thing got away from them, but it was cute wasn't it?

"...regaling," That's a big word! Too big for you!! From whom did you plagiarize it?

I was a consultant type, it's my job.

Some say the glass is half full,
Some say the glass is half empty,
I tell them they have the wrong sized glass.
It's what I do. Then send them the bill.
