No doubt a lot of manipulating and fudging on this one....the US should have taken top honors hands down.
Hard to compare apples to apples with a reading test in dozens of different languages and scripts.
Certainly not fair if our kids should be given a change to test reading skills with the Chinese version. :p

The article says the Chinese students were told they were testing for national honor....one can only imagine
the penalty for failure on that one. :o

No doubt our kids would give the Irish a hell of a run for their money at Beer Pong!

I very much doubt that. The Irish actually drink real beer.

Yeah, that real beer can make you genuinely crazy.
Now that Belgium InBev bought Budweser hopefully they can 'fix' it.

Since we are on topic, :p my Irish buddy sent me this one....

The Irishman's Daughter~

An Irish daughter had not been home for over 5 years. Upon her return, her father cussed her. "Where have ye been all this time?

Why did ye not write to us, not even a line?
Why didn't ye call?

Can ye not understand what ye put yer old mum thru?
The girl, crying, replied, "Sniff, sniff....Dad....I became a prostitute...."

"Ye what!!? Out of here, ye shameless harlot! Sinner! You're a disgrace to this family."

"OK, dad-- as ye wish. I just came back to give mum this luxurious fur coat, title deed to a ten bedroom mansion plus a $5 million savings certificate. For me little brother, this gold Rolex and for ye daddy, the sparkling new Mercedes limited edition convertible that's parked outside plus a membership to the country club....(takes a breath)....and an invitation for ye all to spend New Years Eve on board my new yacht in the Riviera and .……."

"Now what was it ye said ye had become?" says dad.
Girl, crying again, "Sniff, sniff....a prostitute dad! Sniff, sniff."

"Oh! .... Be Jesus! ....Ye scared me half to death, girl!.....
I thought ye said.....a 'Protestant'.
Come here and give yer old man a hug!"

Lol. Who doesn't want that?

This was my fav by far.

Just saw this one. I would agree here. And it's for the opposite reason of BM <-- I just got that. Nice.

They do drink real beer vs. our piss in a can. The Irish would be too busy after the first couple beers with kicking the shit out of each other to finish the game. That's how'd we win. Default.
