Welcome one and all to Jim's Cafe! A little less going rogue and a little more "topics of the day" this time, so lets see what day it is today:
1) "World Wildlife Day"
2) "What if Cats and Dogs had Opposable Thumbs day"
3) "National Anthem Day"
4) "Registered Dietitian Day"
5) "Canadian Bacon Day"
6) "International Irish Whiskey Day",
7) "World Maths Day"
8) "Cold Cuts Day"
9) "Mulled Wine Day"


So what shall we do with these topics? Well, By Mixing 3, 5 and 6 we get the "National Appreciation Table", next, Lets mix 1 and 2 for the "Animal Lover's Table", and finally, The recruitment table, Oh and a little something extra hidden at the back... I really wanted to do a maths table, but I couldn't think of any good questions, I suppose that's what happens when you neglect sleep... so instead, an open invitation to anyone who wants to teach us Maths or talk about any of the other days above if it moves you. :)

So Pick your table and feast yourself on the topics at hand :D but first:

Fun Facts
Did you know:
1) If you are drinking Champaign from a place other than a very specific town in France, its not actually Champaign, it is Sparkling Wine. Champaign is a sparkling wine named for the specific region in France in which it is made.
2) North Korea and Cuba are apparently the only countries in the world where you cant by Coca Cola.
3) The Canary Islands were named after Dogs, not Birds. The name "Canary Islands" comes from the Italian name "Islas Canarias" which itself comes from the Latin "Canariae Insulae" meaning "Island of Dogs".
4) Australia boasts possibly the lonest place name in the world with the little town of "Mamungkukumpurangkuntjunya Hill".
5) 1 Billion used to mean "1million millions", as defined in the 16th century, but in recent decades the American Billion "1thousand millions" gained such popularity that other countries began to cave.


National Appreciation Table
A Table for us all to get warm and fuzzy about those strange concepts of "you cant come here, we claimed this bit".
1) Which country are you from?
2) What is your favourite thing about your country?
3) If I were stuck in your country for a week, where is 1 place I would absolutely have to visit? Or alternatively 1 activity I MUST do?
4) What country have you always wanted to visit and why?
5) Which country has the best Language / Accent? (You can choose your own, and you can choose any regional language/accent of any country)
6) What does your country mean to you?


Animals Lovers Table

2) Tell us about what it takes to take care of your pet?

4) Have you ever got the chance to work with wild animals, if so, tell us a story, if not, would you if you could?
5) Tell us Why you love animals, just go nuts :D

Hiya *grouphug2 Hope everyone has a great day today!

1) Which country are you from?
Belgium. :)

2) What is your favourite thing about your country?
Belgians usually don't take things too seriously, they're festive and chill and open to other cultures (as in, it's multicultural).

3) If I were stuck in your country for a week, where is 1 place I would absolutely have to visit? Or alternatively 1 activity I MUST do?
In a week you can visit the whole country by car or by train, which happens to be fairly cheap. :D I guess Bruges/Brugge is a cute city, but if you're more into peaceful more nature-oriented places, Dinant (irrelevant, but the saxophone was invented there). Go for a bike ride if the weather allows it.

Bruges

Dinant

4) What country have you always wanted to visit and why?
Finland, because I feel a particular connection to its culture/lifestyle/mentality.

5) Which country has the best Language / Accent? (You can choose your own, and you can choose any regional language/accent of any country)
I don't want to pick mine, but I do think French is a very unique and beautiful language. :D I wish I could hear it from an outsider's point of view, without understanding it.

6) What does your country mean to you?
Not much. It's where I was born and have always lived. It's a good country to live in if you can put up with the grey clouds all year round.

3) What aspect of which animal do you REALLY envy?
Birds, they can fly wherever they want, whenever they want.

5) Tell us Why you love animals, just go nuts :D
They're all wonderful, beautiful and unique just like us. The diversity is magical. :)

Looking for people who will accept me for who I am

Thanks for the invite, Dante.

1. The United States

2. NASA. I've always felt the Space Program is a demonstration of what we're capable of when we focus and work together. Something that has the potential to unite the world.

3. Can't think of anything at the moment. The way things are right now in this country.

4. Italy or Greece. I love classical mythology, and would love to see the pieces of history dedicated to it.

5. The United Kingdom.

6. I don't know anymore. For the same reasons I can't answer question number 3. Currently, this country epitomizes hatred and intolerance more than anything else. If this offends anyone...I'm not going to apologize for how I feel right now. I can't be politically correct with my feelings about what I've witnessed happen in this country for the last four years and what it directly lead to on January 6th.
