    I don't think those ads are about nuggets, but I'll leave that to CD. I am sure she knows a nugget when she sees one!

    How very odd that you don't celebrate Labour Day on May 1st! Been reading it up on Wikipedia, it says when you changed from May to your current date but not really why.
    And do you really have your 2005 summer break in February?

    Same here, labour day is I believe on November 1st... I thought it was universal on may 1st.. wrong... I guess they do it in spring time so the weather is nice or something....

    If I had to guess, I would say it was shifted in order to separate it from May 1st, which was occupied by communists and socialists.
    And do you really have your 2005 summer break in February?
    See? This is what happens when you reserve basic math courses for Ph.D.s, as mentioned by Ms. Chicken!

    Labour day developed independently in ANZAC land, so they have their own date. At least, that's what it says on Wikipedia.

    Say, m00se, hadn't we agreed in the other thread that Israel would stop expanding the settlements in the West Bank? What's going on - don't tell me we have to start this discussion again, after we had found a solution of the Middle East problems?

    P.S.: To be honest, I DID miss Israel when counting Asian medals. Israel didn't look very Asian to me when I was there last time...

    Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.


    And on Tuesday everybody tries like hell to keep the unions out of their companies

    How about Amir Khan? Only 17 and he knocks out his opponent in the first round - I think the presenter said that's the only time that's EVER happened in the Olympics. Could be the youngest ever boxing gold medal on Sunday.

    Thanks, clulup, but I would have to defer to Alli on that task.

    you mean knocking out your opponent in the first round?
    I thought a dutch boxer did that too to the then reigning world champ a few olympics ago ...

    http://www.athens2004.com/en/OlympicMedals/medals


    Medals (25-8-04):
    EU 50+ 50+ 50+ 150+
    United States 25 28 19 72
    CHN China 24 15 12 51
    JPN Japan 15 8 9 32
    AUS Australia 14 9 14 37
    RUS Russia 9 18 21 48


    But what really is surprizing that Australia with 'only' 20 million people wins so much gold..

    25/300=0.08 gold medal per milion people
    14/20=0.7 gold medal per milion people

    Just did a search on knockouts in olympic boxing, it's certainly not the first. Ah well, don't know what the commentator was on about then.
    Still, the lad's a star

    As for the EU entering as a block, is anyone actually serious about that? We would necessarily have fewer athletes entering each discipline, therefore fewer chances of medals, not more. I don't think any but the most ardent pro-intergrationist would possibly support such a hare-brained idea

    I think it was more a what-if scenario... but it may happen in years to come..
    I totally didnt think of the fact we would be allowed fewer atletes..
    With that the 50+ numbers would certainly change too..

    Sorry PeterBrown, but I don't think the logic behind fewer EU athletes-fewer medals works. Since obviously a "block" EU would send only the best of its athletes in each discipline, I don't think the number of medals would go down. Today, many EU counties send athletes that don't have a chance for a medal anyway, they would not be missed in a medal count. I don't think any country ever had to leave an athlete with a chance for a medal at home because there were too many of them.

    I doubt the EU will enter the Olympics as a block anytime soon, but nevertheless, I found the comparison interesting (even if a bit embarassing for the US, sorry about that )

    You have a point, however the chance of a medal depends on the form on the day. If you have 5 candidates competing for the same medal you have a bette chance one of them is in great form then if you have only one..

    True, but if the EU acts as a block, they can easily change the rules , specially with the help of Switzerland , who is the host of the International Olympic Committee. Here's the address:

    International Olympic Committee
    Chateau de Vidy
    1007 Lausanne
    Switzerland
