    Guo Jingjing. Hottest woman in the olympics. Although for an entire nation I like the Brazilian women's team.

    Wait a minute, I thought the sun never sets on the British Empire. You couldn't possible be telling me that Great Britian isn't as powerful as it used to be. Surely use must be joking.

    i was talking about the population.. we have only 68m.. we have less people to pick from for sports.

    GB is still one of the most powerfull countries in the world in terms of Political and Economic power.

    Perhaps if you had treated your former colonies more fairly then they would not have had less incentive to seek independence. Then you might have more of those metals that you seem to so badly crave and I would not have to hear about ratio of metal arguments.
