  • I’m from Macedonia and I’m wondering how many of you actually know where Macedonia is?

    • Former Yugoslavia, above Greece. Greece has a region called Macedonia, so they couldn’t join the EU as Macedonia, but joined as the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Every European above 25 will know this I think.

      • LOST was probably quizzing us “dumb Americans” but I assure you, there are plenty of us who know where Macedonia is too.

        **To be fair, while I did know they were not allowed to join the EU under the name Macedonia due to the Greek region of the same name, I thought they simply joined as the Republic of Macedonia. Totally missed the “former Yugoslav” part, so thank you for correcting my error!

        • Well, that’s the Greek side of the story. Actually Macedonia was divided between Serbia, Bulgaria and Greece in the Balkan Wars in 1913. We could join the EU if Greece accepted our name as Macedonia, but if they do , we’ll have the right to get back the part of land that was given to them in the Balkan Wars. That’s why they’re saying that Macedonia is Greek, just like they’re saying Alexander the Great is Greek. Here, he’s known by the name of “Александар Македонски” (Alexander the Macedonian).

        • Your welcome. I must say reading the comment my first thought was ‘this person feels quite superior’. I didn’t want to assume though… I feel a better person knowing I wasn’t the only one.

  • How about Conan O’Brien referencing NBC airing the olympics, saying they’ll, “…finally get to show someone who’s okay with passing the torch.”

  • My favorite Sherlock quote is from John Watson to Mary:
    The problems of your past are your problem. The problems of your future are my privilege.

  • From Chicago PD:
    - Hey, the girl who’s in the hospital, her mother’s downstairs.
    - All right, bring her up.
    - I’m assuming that’s Spanish for you’re gonna go down there and get her yourself.
