You tell me. I don't know any schizophrenics. Well none have disclosed their situation to me so I suppose they are remaining anonymous.

Given the funding model is now based on success of a sport, the Australian government should probably de-fund everything now

What a waste of money on a bunch of spoiled losers who only care about who they can root in Rio.
Funds that could be more wisely spent on schools and hospitals.

I may need to buy a new bigger phone, the medal table doesn't go down low enough to see Australia on it.

We're doing ok for a country with such a small population. Once we get more naturalised foreigners, we'll go better like some other countries are. :wink:

If you want to look at a country doing well with small population. Take a look at the one in second place.

Which countries have all these naturalised foreigners in them.

Just got another gold in tae kwan do :-)

Why aren't all the countries representing GB (which isn't an individual country) at the Olympics compete as individual countries like all other countries.

If the GB flag is the union jack flag which is made up of the colours of the red and white flag of England and the blue and white flag of Scotland then why does the English football team play in red white and blue - surely it should be just red and white and have no Scottish blue in it as they are not playing football for GB.
