Miss France, she has the Eiffel Tower on her head, because France has the Eiffel Tower, and no other country does, so she put it on her head, that’s why

    Incidentally, Berlin, Germany has the Funkturm (not to be confused with the Fernsehturm), which looks a lot like the Eiffel Tower.

    Check out this one (in French):


    [TIL in France, a rocket launch goes "1… 2… 3… 4… 5… lift-off!" -Raymond]

    Interesting sheeps they go in France.

  4. Marquess says:

    Remember kids, don't believe anything that pretty women tell you about rocketry. Even in France (more specifically, French Guyana, at the Centre Spatial Guyanais), they count down. But in French.

    It's not exactly rocket scie… oh, wait.

  5. I thought the countdown in France went like this:


    10 HOME

    20 PRINT "15…"

    21 PRINT "30…"

    22 PRINT "40…"

    30 IF RND(1) > 0.5 GOTO 40

    31 GOTO 50


    41 IF RND(1) > 0.5 GOTO 100

    42 GOTO 60


    51 IF RND(1) > 0.5 GOTO 60

    52 GOTO 200


    51 IF RND(1) > 0.5 GOTO 40

    52 GOTO 50

    100 PRINT "LIFTOFF!"

    101 GOTO 300


    201 GOTO 300

    300 END

  6. Oops… the second "line 51" should be 61, and the second "line 52" should be 62.

    @Marquess, And Tokyo has the Tokyo tower…

    Yes! This is why I read this blog. You never know what kind of wacky stuff gets mixed in with articles on how garbage collection works.

  10. Marquess says:

    You mean this isn't an article about garbage collection?

    Interesting sheeps they go in France.

    Of course! Everything's interesting in France!!

    And indeed our sheeps sound very differently than english and american ones:


    /blatant bad faith

    You know, it's totally over the top, but I actually like the Miss USA "dress" :P

    Of course, with Miss Venezuela right underneath her they look like a hero/villain pair from something terrible, like maybe Batman Forever II.

  13. AsianBorat says:

    Switzerland's is by far my favorite.

  14. Morten says:

    I went "What a sweet little nothing she's almost wearing" several times. Nice page, that.

    Good thing that the "National symbol on the head" thing didn't catch on. Miss Australia would have looked just plain silly with Uluru on her head.

    @Morten: Ayer's Rock, mate. Ayer's Rock.

    No need to go all pc on this blog, I don't think.
