    1: Voting = 18
    Drinking = Practically nothing. A 12 year old waving a €5 note would get a drink (and I'm not joking )
    2: Gaelic football / hurling
    3: Ireland's nice (and beautiful), but it's a little too unlively for my liking.
    4: The people are great craic.
    5: Meh. There are worse places.
    6: Yes - anyone Eastern-European.
    7: U2
    8: Not sure. 16 I think.
    9: Anything.
    10: Yeah, two - Gerry Adams and Ian Paisley.
    Money, power, sex... and elephants.

    edit: i forgot to mention i'm aswering about Puerto Rico

    1. 18 for both but almost every drinker started with no problem at 16 and the politics down here are so corrupted that sometimes 16 will do for voting (you know, a guy wanting his party to win and letting a kid go to vote).
    2. The three major sports here are, in no particular order, baseball, basketball and boxing.
    3. I absolutely love my country.
    4. Exagerated.
    5. Haha! Puerto Rico is the only country (or should i say colony...) in the word that about 40% of the population want it to be state 51, 57% would like to keep sucking money from the states (meaning they love the states too) and about 3% that want it to be a republic. Im form the 3% but I don't hate the states, just their leaders.
    6. Let me put it this way: my grandmother is morena (lighter than black, darker than white) and she doesn't like too much the black (yes, i said black, thats the color they are and it is not an issue here) too much.
    7. Whoever is famous in hollywood, the news casts and bunch of other people (when you're famous most of the people just want to know something about you... well, everything). being a celebrity here is kindda the highier you can get.
    8. 16
    9. God forsaken reggueton. just imagine rap but a LOT LOT worse. i mean, i like rap but when it is done the proper way, not just singing about how much money you have and how much ladies like you.
    10. in my town that would be "el meon", "el hijo del meon" (el meon got an idiot son) and "juan galalu"

    I'm confused with what the question meant. This country has racism, unfortunatly, but I'm not victim to it. *fixes my answer* There!

    Because the questions were about your Country, not you, I thought the question would have meant "Has your country ever had to deal with racism?" Not you as an individual. I'm not gonna point fingers, because we are prpetty horrible too, but some of the things I have seen...I can't sleep...

    Australia -


    1. What is the drinking/voting age in your country? 18 years of age.
    2. What is a popular sport there? Australian Rules Football and Cricket.
    3. Do you actually LOVE your country, or is it: "Hey, I just live there." I love my country
    4. The people are ____? Really friendly and laid back. It a 'no worries' thing.
    5. (I know most. . .well, perhaps ALL countries hate America. .) but do you? Not really. I just think the country has a lot of issues that need to be worked out. As we all do.
    6. Have you ever had to deal with racism in your country? There is racism in every country. But no, haven't personally been a victim of racism.
    7. Who's the most famous celb. there? At the moment it I would have to say it would be Kylie Minogue. She's always been an Australian icon - but the media's focusing even more on her because of her breast cancer at the moment.
    8. How old do you have to be inorder to drive? You can get your 'L Plates' at 16 but to go for your license I think it's either 17 or 18.
    9. What kind of music would you say is popular in your country? Depends on what people are listening to at the moment. All sorts of music is popular. But we all like to support the Australian music industry - so Australian musicians get focused on alot.
    10. I have to know-is there a "village idiot" in your country? Yes.

    Ireland
    1. What is the drinking/voting age in your country? 18

    2. What is a popular sport there? Soccer

    3. Do you actually LOVE your country, or is it: "Hey, I just live there.", Hey I just live there but nobody insults it except me and other Irish people

    4. The people are ? usually friendly. Some are moody. They're all the same when theyre drunk.

    5. (I know most. . .well, perhaps ALL countries hate America. .) but do you? I dont hate America. But Bush and theyre "your either with us or against us" opinions are irritating.

    6. Have you ever had to deal with racism in your country? I personally havent and theres not a particular problem with ti over here but there is the occasional bad opinion of a foreigner like any other county. People do generally have a problem with travllers and the travelling community as you'll often here of them causing trouble and being rough and occasionally dangerous. Theres always been trouble in the north which belongs to England between catholics and Protestants.

    7. Who's the most famous celeb. there? "In" the country or "from" the country? Id say Colin Farrel if its from and if its in then you probably havent heard of them.

    8. How old do you have to be inorder to drive? 18 me thinks

    9. What kind of music would you say is popular in your country? Younger people like pop and R&B. Older people like Irish music and old songs (go figure)

    10. I have to know-is there a "village idiot" in your country? No one in particular, Theres an idiot village in my town though. People from the estate "Childers" are seen as rough and troublesome and people who live in caravans and travel around the country (knackers) are viewed as trouble.
