: : About those non-American folks, bet you wouldn't enjoy life in many of those countries. Places like Basutuland.

: There is no country called 'Basutuland'. The name of the people living there are Basotho. (yes, that's how you spell it.) As for the name of the country, I could tell you, but I really don't give a shit. If you don't have the respect to call them by their proper name, then I don't see the point of debating with you.

Yeah, I know, it's Swaziland. I just wanted to see if anyone would catch it. My money was on you.
PS, I had an uncle who did missionary work in Basutoland. He occasionally sent artifacts, including a spear, back to his mom in Quebec. His mom's house looked like a wing of the British Mueseum. He was a Jesuit as I recall. Never met him.
