The Headliner “Country running out of loo roll” are you serious? and theirs me thinking I need a new phone, which one should I buy! While there’s countries across the world running out of loo roll? Who wants it but cant buy it!
“Cuba is facing a particularly delicate economic crisis: its citizens are desperately short of toilet paper.
The country has been badly hit by the world recession, and the price of 24 essential goods has been slashed to prevent the population slipping further into poverty.
However one item the government seems unable to control is the availability of loo rolls. Officials deny there is a shortage, but new supplies are not scheduled for delivery until the end of the year.”
What can we do to help? I know there’s more bigger issues happening in the world like war on terror, although I’m sure they there battling and terrorizing with basic commodities. What cant you live with out?
Come On England!
I know everyone has heard of England, although I want to educate you the basics which many fail to distinguish between, First of all lets clear things up:
Q. Why is England or the UK sometimes called Britain?
A.”England” is sometimes, wrongly, used in reference to the whole United Kingdom, the entire island of Great Britain (or simply Britain), or indeed the British Isles. This is not only incorrect but can cause offence to people from other parts of the UK.
Did you know?
England, Scotland, Wales, Great Britain refer to different ‘parts of the UK. The British Isles includes many islands not even part of the UK The name United Kingdom refers to the union of what were once four separate countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland (though most of Ireland is now independent).
The UK’s full and official name is the “United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”.
Some random stuff:
The English drink more tea per person than any other people in the world (over twenty times more than Americans!) Mmmm how much i love my tea ^__^
Shakespeare invented the word “assassination” and “bump.”
The shortest war in history was between Zanzibar and England in 1896. Zanzibar surrendered after 38 minutes. Ahhaaa!
