Actually, I'm from The Netherlands and Devac's from Poland! That's not really Scandinavia anymore. Isn't mike up in Norway?

Look, I may not know a lot of things, but I can at least half-ass my way through geography. Everything between Great Britain and Russia is Scandinavia.

Only if I can call everything above the 37th parallel Canada now.

Honestly? I don't really have a problem with that. Anyone who knows anything knows Canada is much less a country and much more a culture actively exploring one major thought experiment. Involving citizens from a real country might actually do some good.

Edit: All joking aside, Canada is actually an awesome country and I'm glad they're our neighbors. Ditto for Mexico.

IMO it was close enough to give rd95 a pass. There's a lot of people who confuse Poland with Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan or think it's a part of Balkans so I'm not complaining. (edit: A part of) Scandinavia at least has access to the Baltic Sea. ;)

And yeah, I also recall mike as living in Norway. I guess he would post something if it would change.
