A simple country comparison

Came across this link,

Click on your country and see a few instant stats compared to Switzerland.

Kinda interesting

Enjoy

--I guess all the stats are based on the CIA World Factbook, so entirely based on their data and interpretation

That one shocked me as well--I'm guessing it the long distance transmission-loss in Canada.

Eitherway I'm using my GPU to heat my flat here, so if more ppl pick this trend up, we can even the playing ground :P
