Well, our "Steirische Eiche" Arnie was right. The dumb local politicians wanted to "punish" him by renaming the Stadium. But Arnie came first :devil:

Haha.... it looks like a copy-paste job by the WTA editors!
Since I was distracted with my assignment, I noticed a few others:

"Czech starlet" Lucie Safarova
"popular Austrian" Sybille Bammer
"talented Frenchwoman" Tatiana Golovin

The only one they seem to have changed was Elena Dementieva, who went from a "former US Open runner-up" to an "elegant Russian"!! :haha:

Are Brits much better?

A few disturbing facts from the survey:

17% were unaware which countries make up the UK.

More than one-in-20 UK residents didn't know that Cardiff is the capital of Wales.

One-in-10 thought that Berkshire land-locked Maidenhead was a seaside town.

15% think the Leicestershire town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch is 'abroad'.

6% reckon the Lincolnshire town of Grimsby is actually somewhere in the south.

6% also believe that the West Midlands town of Walsall is actually the same name as the capital of Poland.

Almost a third had no idea which motorway runs between Wales and London (M4).

15% thought Edinburgh was 700 miles from London when in it's actually only 413.

More than a third confessed to getting lost easily . .

. . yet 22% head still headed off on journeys without a map in the car.

Almost 70% think modern technology like satnav and internet route planners have made us lazy and complacent when it comes to geography and asking for directions.

More than one-in-10 admitted they knew their way around some foreign countries better than the UK.

4% have ended up in completely the wrong place because there are 2 or more locations in the UK with the same name.

The highlighted one cracks me up.

Not really, considering this :

In England and Wales 390,127 people (0.7%) stated their religion as Jedi on their 2001 Census forms, surpassing Sikhism, Judaism, and Buddhism, and making it the fourth largest reported religion in the country. The highest percentages of such responses were typically in cities with high student populations. In the 2001 Census 2.6% of the population of Brighton claimed to be Jedi. The percentages of religious affiliations were:

Christian: 72.0%
No religion: 14.8%
Chose not to respond: 7.7%
Muslim: 3.1%
Hindu: 1.1%
Jedi: 0.7%

;)

American teenagers don't even know where ENGLAND, FRANCE, RUSSIA, and ITALY are!!!!

We had a European map quiz, and I had been looking at maps my whole life and loved history. Pity I couldn't say that about my classmates. They labled Poland as Russia....England as I don't know...France as Germany....Italy was mislabeled as Romeland....it was so embarassing. And this is coming in a top school district in Ohio (Hilliard). I've never felt so embarassed for someone.

And the WTA editors REALLY need some variety. I'll go work for them. I'm a soon to be published author of a book.

Okay...I'm American and I knew the M4 connects Wales and England. I also know that the M1 goes into Northern England and possibly Scotland.

We ALL need to learn how to read maps. K?

Well, to be honest - although Hitler was born in Austria 1889 he adopted the german citizenship 1932 in Braunsschweig/Germany as far as I can remember. He anyway hated Autria (I love Austria ;) ) that was the reason he joined the german army 1914 and fought for "Deutsches Reich" until 1918. Actually he never spend any time of his life again in Austria until 1938, so he he had tighter connections to Germany.
