    Ah, is fair enough. That's a far more reasonable view than many people hold. Sorry for the pedantry xD

    "You sure?"

    1. Legally, it's 18 for drinking (but even a 14 year-old could buy booze), and 18 for voting.
    2. Err, football (REAL football), and basketball, I guess.
    3. I love it, sincerely and dearly.
    4. Fierce.
    5. Not at all, on the contrary.
    6. A lot of ethnic strife (or strife in general), but little racism.
    7. I dunno, there're a few.
    8. 17 for being allowed to drive, with a license (you can learn from the age of 16).
    9. Any kind, really. It's pretty diverse.
    10. Umm... I suppose there is.

    The rightful owner of this Ciddie can kiss my arse! :P

    1. What is the drinking/voting age in your country?
    18 for voting. For drinking, it should be 16. Most people I know (possibly including myself, I cannot remember) have already started by that age, though.

    2. What is a popular sport there?
    Calcio. Soccer.

    3. Do you actually LOVE your country, or is it: "Hey, I just live there."
    It randomly variates. There are things I love and things and attitudes I hate.

    4. The people are ____?
    Uh, well. I'd say open (which does not necessarily mean open-minded...), stubborn, warm (most of them), noisy (in a positive sense )and, uh...well. There are a lot of different attitudes around, actually.

    5. (I know most. . .well, perhaps ALL countries hate America. .) but do you?
    Personally I don't. People over here more than hating America hate some american people and attitudes (like George W. Bush and the supposed "We're the masters of the world" attitude that many people blame on America.)

    6. Have you everhad to deal with racism in your country?
    A lot of times. Racism is still strong here.

    7. Who's the most famous celb. there?
    What's a celb.? If it's a celebration, well, I wouldn't know. There are things like the 4th of July, but they are much less felt by common people.

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

    9. What kind of music would you say is popular in your country?
    Pop music, expecially if sung by Italian singers. Duh.

    10. I have to know-is there a "village idiot" in your country?
    A public figure everyone mocks? Pretty much every politician. The more powerful, the worst they're treated by thos who don't like them. By the way, what Silvio Berlusconi says often offends my intelligence.
