Well, by the looks of it I live in "OTHER", wherever the hell that is?!!
I live in South Africa.
Cape Town to be more precise.

Who draws up such a poll and then manages to leave out an entire continent?! :ban:

But then I guess we're only 600-million people, 50+ countries, and a couple of thousand nationalities. Easily overlooked . . . :)

Simon . . . you should know by now that my post included a heavy dose of sarcasm :) something us South Africans are known for (it's a survival technique!). But thanks for restoring my identity, for a moment there I was lost, but now I have a pigeon hole, albeit the "dark one" of Africa!

P.S. . . . Surely I can't be the only African on this site?
