This time, DrSchnell comes up with the sole perfect score and the TQXLVI Gold Star, his third.<BR/><BR/>Karmasartre takes the Silver, his second. With this star, Karma becomes the seventh person to break into double-digit all-time Star accumulation.<BR/><BR/>Tied with Karma with 10/12, gs49 scoops up the Blue Star. That's the first Blue and the fourth Star overall for the relative newcomer.</B>Michael5000https://www.blogger.com/profile/10148584819327475239noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-10779294.post-79008318979716751642008-07-24T23:30:00.000-07:002008-07-24T23:30:00.000-07:00All right, kids!

Antigua and Barbuda -- Independent!<BR/>2. Bahamas -- Independent! And yet, DrSchnell points out that it is not, technically, in the Caribbean. Yet although this is true, really, it's really quite in the ballpark. The IS's are right, and DrSchnell is right too. Mrs.5000 isn't right -- she admitted in a follow-up question that she didn't think the Bahamas were independent. That leaves Boo, who can let me know what her reasoning was if she wants.<BR/>3. Barbados -- IS!<BR/>4. Dominica -- IS! And we're not talking about the Dominican Republic, which also IS!<BR/>5. Guadeloupe -- Nope. French colony.<BR/>6. Jamaica -- IS!<BR/>7. Saint Kitts and Nevis -- IS!<BR/>8. Saint-Pierre and Miquelon -- No. Another French colony, and off the Canadian coast for that matter.<BR/>9. Trinidad and Tobago -- IS!<BR/>10. Turks and Caicos Islands -- No! British colony.<BR/>11. Vanuatu -- No! Independent, but in the South Pacific.<BR/>12. Virgin Islands -- No! Split betwixt the U.S. and the U.K.<BR/></B>Michael5000https://www.blogger.com/profile/10148584819327475239noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-10779294.post-36044352890389592872008-07-24T23:15:00.000-07:002008-07-24T23:15:00.000-07:00By independent you mean "not a territory or posses...By independent you mean "not a territory or possession of some colonial power," right?
