Background

Was in Ireland when I wrote this. The Republic of Ireland to be exact. Babysitting my cousins... we were talking about Australia, so I looked it up in an atlas, and you know, it's called "The Commonwealth of Australia" so I got into looking for other terms they have in the names of countries. *L* You know, *points southward, toward the United States of you-know-what* Countries don't have names anymore, just a buncha technical terms. ...or names that were actually stoopid mistakes. I.E. explorers ask "what is this place?" native dude thinks he's talking about the village, so he says "canada" which means "group of huts." Anywaaaaaaay.........
