Re: Where are you from?

I come from a CITY. We are not (yet) a country.

The Foreign Minister (voted in by the people) actually said this officially in Parliament a few years back.

My thoughts exactly. And what if you come from more than one place? I can't choose just one. One part of my family or the other will disown me!

Haahaa. I thought about that too! Well, the country wasn't even mentioned to begin with. I think Plus needs to edit his poll a bit.

I am puzzled. Singapore IS a country. And I do not quite see a city anywhere to get independent ?? And ministers elected by the people, this sounds like the Republic of Geneva

But why does this poll assume that all of us are from the planet Earth?
