I'm an Island!

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 1:26 AM

I just took the what-country-are-you quiz (thanks go to Jake), and guess what? I'm Japan! Yup, that's right. Just for fun, I also tried adjusting the answers and it took quite a few adjustments to get myself to be anything else… second choice? It seems if not Japan, I would be Germany. Hmm… (My actual “report” from the quiz site follows)

Japan - Viewed as the technological powerhouse of the 21st
Century, it has lived a reletively solemn and
singular history.

Technologically Advanced.
Economic Superpower.
Healthy Populace.

Isolated and Sometimes Ignored.
Unlucky with Disasters.

I'm landlocked!

Switzerland - A neutral power for as long as most can remember, it has avoided war for several centuries. However, it is still considered highly advanced and a global power.

Positives: Judicial. Neutrality. World-Renouned. Powerful without Force. Makes Excellent Watches, Etc.

Negatives: Target of Ridicule. Constant Struggle to Avoid Conflict. Target of Criminal Bank Accounts.

Seems to be an indication that you need to get into the banking industry, Kevin. ;-)

RE: I'm an Island!

Hey Jake: Glad to provide it. :-) I was hoping to get the USA, but I guess it was not to be. I wonder what I answered wrong? Oh well, I ended up with a country I wouldn’t mind visiting, so that’ll do.

Irene: Great, two Japans are better than one. ;-) Japan is a pretty good country to be, I think. Lots of nice technology, pretty scenery…
