I’m still trying to conquer the world…

30 10 2012

It’s been a while so here’s the latest update.

Bulgaria – Apparently when Bulgarians move their heads from side to side they mean yes and up and down means no. Is this true? Any Bulgarians out there that can substantiate this claim?!

Czech Republic – Czech people are the world’s heaviest consumers of beer.

Egypt – Pharaoh Pepi II (2246-2152 B.C.) had the longest reign in history of 94 years. Apparently he used to smear naked slaves with honey to keep the flies away – perhaps something we can all learn from.

Guernsey – It’s not part of the UK and has its own parliament, stamps and coins and is where a lot of people like to avoid the tax man.

Latvia – Almost a third of the people who live in Latvia are Russian.

Sri Lanka – The spice cinnamon originated in Sri Lanka and was discovered by the Egyptians.

That means 82 countries so far and still a long way to go.

But thank you none less to the countries that capitulated.

Fear not, I am a fair conqueror, happy thoughts and air guitars are on the way.

Some obvious gaps means a long conquering campaign ahead.

Is that where you are from? I should asked you for the fact if that’s the case!

No I’m not, But it’s well documented over here that Jersey and Guernsey are both used for tax dodging and a couple of online shops operate out of Guernsey and Jersey to reduce their prices
