It’s the same isn’t :p

 

Americans are like the last nation I'd suspect of knowing the difference between Slovenia & Slovakia :raspberry:

Unfortunately this is largely true. Jokes aside, I’m largely in the minority that can locate more than 5 countries on a world map, or even name more than 10-15 (and know the difference between states and countries, and not call Africa a country)

These movies always makes me laugh. Woman pointing at Bolivia and asking "Is this South Africa?" takes the cake every time :lol:

Do you have a word with only Slovak letters (I mean diacrits). We do:  żółć (that yellow liquid from liver).

 

That is bile in English.  Bile or bilious also means bad-tempered.

Controversial opinion: Egan is better than Dunklee (or at least she will prove to be).

 

Nope, Egan has a higher upside than Dunklee.  I agree with you.  Give her some more time.

As a History professor, students in my class need to be able to locate every country in the world.  No if they retain that, I have no idea.  But for just a moment in their lives, they should know the difference between Slovenia and Slovakia.

Also it's not controversial. At all.

 

Egan is 32 years old, which is why I doubt she'll prove to be significantly better than Dunklee. There's not a lot of time to improve.

From what I understand both Dunklee and Egan are done after the next Olympics.  I am glad that the US finally has three decent to good female biathletes.  You have to go back a long time before you find this again.  Too bad the relay is 4 women     :(.

What are your expectations for the relay today?  I really do not know much at all about Croatian Biathlon.  Can they beat Slovakia or Romania?
