    How Dreadful…No. 1 only in defence spending, prison population, and belief in angels. The very three things one should want to be last in.

    Well, I got 2 out of the three #1’s correct. I knew we weren’t first in internet speed – I am forced to pay for cable from a provider that must secretly use dial-up. -.- The angels one got me – more people in the US believe in angels than any other country in the world? Must be all those prisoners who are praying for their convictions to be overturned. 😛

      I got only three correct. I am interested to know what countries are beating us out and who sets the stipulations for each catagory.
