    Talk about grasping at straws. But it does support Newguy's theory that the EU is desperately trying to become the World power that they arent.

    You know, I just asked somebody today, "once the EU completes their formation, will they compete in the Olympics as ONE nation or will they continue as they do now? If they continue like they do now, does that mean that in the US each state should start their own Olympic teams?"

    This is so stupid. If the EU competed as one team they wouldnt have won a quarter of those medals. Because they wouldnt have had as many people in the olympics.

    If they want to make the argument then maybe we should start sending teams from every state.

    "The EU swept the floor at the Olympic Games."

    I don't think I've ever heard that said with such PRIDE before.

    Hmmmm. Add a big wall to all this and it sounds like a kinder, softer Soviet Union.

    i totally agree. it must be an envy thing. the US is ONE country, yet we won 35 medals, the most of any country, though China gave us a run for our money-pretty good one too!...Europe is not ONE country, because they still have separate currencies, though the EURO is becoming more the norm. They all have different systems of governments. The US has one main central government, but the states can self-govern to an extent.

    or, maybe it's just penis envy.
