It was originally bigger, but Sweden (which is also next door), kept taking chunks out of our landmass.  Apparently they thought that was OK, since we had been at war and stuff (by no fault of our own, it was all Denmarks fault since they were running the show at the time).   Some of us keep asking them to give it back, but we've had little luck so far.

Yeah, at least we coulda shared.   But it's OK really.  Because we got the North Sea, which is full of delicious oil.  Sweden got the Baltic Sea which Russia used as their personal toilet for years.

CaptBrenden

Yeah, the town where I live is actually quite nice during the summer, lot's of stuff happening in the town center all day long.  

It's being somewhat remodeled these days, so there's been a lot of construction going on, but I hope they'll be finished before next summer.

haha, right... having gone to an all-boys high school, I can figure the repercussions of mentioning that name. Maybe I should refer to it by its full name then:
Krung Thep Maha Nakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayutthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udom Ratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Phiman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanu Kamprasit
