    If you want a real headache:

    We know we're now using "Windows 10", but which operating systems are counted as "Windows 1" through "Windows 9"? :maybe

    The Marshall Islands is the only sovereign country in the world that does not have a record of a national soccer match.

    Apparently they counted Windows 8.1 as "Windows 9".

    Since Howland Island is uninhabited, no time zone is specified. It lies within a which is 12 hours behind , named International Date Line West ( ). Howland Island and are the only places on Earth observing this time zone. This time zone is also called AoE, , which is a calendar designation which indicates that a period expires when the date passes everywhere on Earth.

    AFAIK the United States appropriately has the most overseas territories in the world (14).

    Even if just counting the number is kind of meaningless since it's an arbitrary administrative decision. For example there's no reason why Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands couldn't have been one territory. You can gerrymander your way to more territories by splitting up existing ones.

    Also only five of them are permanently inhabited, so the US has fewer "real" colonies than the UK or France.

    No, they skipped "9" in the code because too many people used "9*" as a shortcut for 95 and 98.

    And all you kids are too young to remember Windows 3.1 (3.11 for Workgroups) :zaru

    Considering it's the same company that came up with the XBox naming scheme we should be thankful that they didn't go back to Windows One.

    "Interest rate of zero or less."

    Is he trying to collapse the economy, or is this just more for his companies?

    I double checked and it looks nothing like a vagina or success.

    Looks like a blue little tasmanian devil icon.

    @mr_shadow what's the icon?

    You would think that after 5 SCR complaint threads made about him, that Island would learn to stop being a bully. :blobcry

    Make another SCR thread about him! :blobvilla
