Default Worldwide competition - 08-28-2012, 03:31 AM

Hello fellow SilabGarza players!

As you might know, the diversity in countries in which people play SilabGarza is pretty big. Example; I'm from Holland. Now I want to do a little competition. The competition will be based on facts, facts of the country where you live in. Those facts could be mindblowing, interesting or totally unexpected. A maximum of 5 facts is allowed. Just make sure you name one of the most amazing facts you know! I have also added a poll. In this poll you can vote on a country which you think has the most amazing facts. Since I don't know which countries all will be competing, I will give countries certain numbers. As I'm heading of with Holland, Holland will be number 1 in the poll. The next country will be 2, etc etc.... Just use this format to post your facts:

Code:
Country:
Number in poll:
Facts:
Also a small note; there are only 10 options available in the poll, so a maximum of 10 countries is allowed to enter. Number 11 and further on will be disqualified. Another small note; you can't vote on your own country. It would be insta-win for USA if I allowed that.

Now, I will start of with my entry:

Country: Holland/The Netherlands
Number in poll: 1
Facts:

1. Holland is the third largest exporter of agricultural produce in the world, and only 3% of the population is employed in any agricultural job. This produce are mainly tulips.

2. We have this sausage looking thing called "Frikadel". It has been made out of all kinds of meat, including horse. Frikandel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

3. Smoking weed is legal in this country. But all people always think the Dutch people are big potheads, but it's mostly foreigners that want to take a smoke.

4. Holland would look like this without "dijken" or dikes:


How it normally looks like:


5. We have this slightly other thing than Santa Claus; Sinterklaas.
We celebrate that on the 5th of December. This celebration, mainly for childeren, is also slightly racist. Sinterklaas, the "leader" has piets, which are all black. So it looks like a white man has black people working for them. Other then that it's a great party, it's just like Christmas, but without the tree.



So, that was my entry, I hope you all enjoy this competition, and of course, vote on Holland!


Competitors:

1. Holland
2. Switzerland
3. Wales
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Country: Wales
Number on Poll: 3
Facts:

#1 - Wales has more castles per square mile than any country in the world.

#2 - The letters K, Q, V and Z do not appear in the Welsh language.

#3 - Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyll-llantysiliogogogoch is the name of a town in North Wales. It means, "The church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio’s of the red cave”. It's the longest place name in the world.

#4 - Wales has a population of around 3 million, yet for each person living in Wales, there are around 4 sheep.

#5 - Wales is the only part of the United Kingdom which is not present on the Union Jack. (Pricks)

Edit: I thought I'd throw this one in for interest because it's quite sad, but there's no word for "love" in the welsh language. There are words that mean "to be crazy about", but not to love as in the english meaning.

I'll edit the options on the poll to the correct countries as they're added, so we can avoid some confusion. Just VM me when more are added and I'll come and edit the poll options.

Country: United Kingdom
Number in poll: 5
Facts:

1. Approximately 53m of the 63m people that live in the United Kingdom, live in England. (Wales - 3m. Scotland - 5m. Northern Ireland - 2m. Overseas Territories - 250k.)

2. "Big Ben" is actually the nickname for the bell of the clock of the Palace of Westminster. It's not the tower itself.

3. The first anatomically modern humans arrived in the UK about 25,000 years ago.

4. The "Great" in "Great Britain" (the island that makes up most of the UK) is actually there to distinguish between the island and "Little Britain" or Brittany in modern France.

5. The British Empire was the largest empire ever and covered close to a quarter of the Earth's land area.

I'm sure there are better facts than these but these are what I thought of.
