Perhaps I should have mentioned this sooner as they're nearly over now, but the Commonwealth Games are currently going on. They're right along the lines of the Olympics, only with only the Commonwealth countries (and their friends? friends of friends? anyone England hasn't gone to war with? not exactly sure, but we never get an invite).
Incidentally, have I mentioned that what we refer to as the Revolutionary War the Commonwealth countries (including Australia) refer to as The American War of Independence? Now I have. Possibly twice.
