One of the things I always find amazing about this community is how everyone is from so many different parts of the world. But as someone who dropped out of school in the second grade, I sometimes don’t know much about where people are from. So I thought it would be fun to share some information about where we’re all from (no political stuff so we can keep it clean). I’ll start:

United States:

  • Tomorrow is the “4th of July” holiday, where we celebrate our independence from the English. We celebrate by having cookouts, drinking beer and lighting fireworks.
  • Professional Soccer (football) is not really that popular in the U.S.
  • We’re having record breaking heat in some parts of the country this summer.

QLD here in Australia.

  • Bloody freezing at the moment ( 15 degrees C :P )
  • State of Origin #3 is on tonight. This is a yearly rubgy match between our state (QLD) and the one just south of us (NSW). The best of the best play it out in 3 matches spread over a month or so. Most people head to a local pub or mates house and make an evening of it, and most call in sick the following day :P I have absolutely zero interest in sports, so it’s always awkward around friends when they’re chatting away about this and that.
  • Australia is much bigger than most people think. We spent 3 months driving around it last year in a caravan whilst working on envato items. If anyone is looking for a place to back pack then I would recommend this country.
  • Most games and digital content costs lots more in Australia than US (eg: games from Steam and Adobe downloads)

Greece:

  • Our coastline is more than 15.000 km, even if Greece is a small country.
  • Official name of Greece is Hellas and greeks are hellens.
  • We created our first alphabet about 1900 BC.
  • We took our first loan at 1823, before our independence (1830), so we have history of loans too :)
  • We dont “break plates” any more! That was a kind of fun at 60s and 70s.
  • “Frappe” coffee (a kind of cold coffee) was created at Thessaloniki (city of Greece) in 1957 by a man who couldnt find hot water :)

Interesting thread… ;D Especially that we all know everything about USA ;) So… Poles gives special attention to their culture and history (I know it’s important but it’s so boooooring … ). Poland in a few words is the country of beautifull woman, alcohol lovers, brilliant food, wonderful landscapes, hard work, and dynamic changes… As a musician I am proud to be Polish when listening to Chopin nocturnes… Maybe my friends will write some more words…

SPAIN

- We are in a horrible (critic, let’s say) economic situation.
- We have been winning main football competitions on last 4 years, so we don’t care at all about the above statement.

:P
