CREDIT FOR THIS GOES TO LEURGY in his response to Grinler regarding how many countries have joined BC.

So This is simply a task of identifying those counties, principalities, Self Administering Provinces etc etc etc (As long as they have their own National Flag) and Providing reasons why they have so far NOT Joined.

EACH STATE CAN ONLY BE USED ONCE and TEXAS DON'T COUNT :flowers:

So lets start with one of Leurgy own ideas.

CHRISTMAS ISLAND...............

They are TOO BUSY Wrapping Presents to Join BC :thumbsup:

Next person just finds a Missing country and adds a reason :trumpet:

What if the national flag of the joining country, NATION, principality isn't available as a choice as part of the "joining" process? As is the case with Cymru/Wales?

Is there not a Flag of Saint David!!!

It is not of course neccessary to have a flag. It is nothing more than a Banner to get us peasants to follow our Religious or Political Masters.

CHINA

:thumbsup:

China cannot not join BC because they are all on Dial Up Modems. There are so many WINGS, and so many WONGS.......They keep Winging the Wong Number :flowers:

1 - Why doesn't Texas count? What have you got against Texas? :thumbsup:
2 - I understand how to play this game but not sure how this will go.
3 - I hope nobody is offended by anything said thus far.

Good question ~67~. I'm afraid that I missed this snippet. You of course being Texan. Would not. He is most likely joking. :trumpet: Though if so, I still do not get it.

So please SaxonMan. Clear this up for us.

:inlove: :flowers: :trumpet: Oh Deary Me!!!

Seems to me a rather simple task, but as I used to work in Texas (Which I loved and especially the people) I threw in the The joke of "Texas Does Not Count as a State" (meaning a Country not a STATE as you USA Folks refere to Counties)

For the sake of moving forward, someone come up with a Reason why COOK Island has not joined BC (yea yea, I know someone will now say THEY HAVE)

The WHOLE purpose was to be funny and use the name of the country in the reason for NOT joining!!! Oh dear, never mind, maybe it was a bad idea after all :thumbsup:

Actually, I didn't think it was an insult to Texas either. I thought you were going to respond with something like:

"With all the big egos in Texas, we're just skipping it".
"Texas isn't a real state, just a state of mind".
"What's funny about Texas"?

Or something like that. Glad you enjoyed it here in Texas but really, no offense taken. I love Texas but no place is worth debating or fighting over,
:thumbsup: .

I get the idea of how to play and I like the thought of the game but I have no idea what places haven't gotten a resident that's a member here. If that makes sense. Or I suppose we could just name any place and do it all in fun. Your game, you pick, Saxon.

hahaha! I've been here in Fort Worth since April of '83, have yet to see a single armadillo. Guess we done run 'em all over, ya think? :inlove:
Never seen no tumbleweed either so I guess John Wayne and Clint Eastwood ain't never done none of them there westerns over yonder here.

Okay, I'm not that good at being real southern but my southern accent is obvious!
:thumbsup:
'Sides, if'n ya want some serious twang, I nominate Larry the Cable Guy! :flowers: and he ain't even Texan!

HAGD and GBT and the USA!

P.S. If you want to see shot out road signs, that record goes to Arkansas. Look, especially, for the signs that say "Home of Bill Clinton" or any sign mentioning Bill Clinton. :trumpet:

Sorry, my mistake,i assumed you meant the flags/nations, available to choose from when registering with BC.I wonder, just how many "nations" aren't represented in this list when registering, that have their own national flag and regard themselves as nations? For example, when i register on a message board, the options are limited,UK, and that's it, and i get the (much maligned) union jack.When Wales has three national flags to choose from, Y ddraig Goch/Red Dragon, Dewi Sant/St Davids flag, and the Royal standard of Owain Glyndwr, why can't i put in one of my nations options?

:thumbsup: DUNNO :flowers:

I am English, but No St George either. Matters not, always been Proud of Being British, but I KNOW I am English. Its like being in a World Exclusive Club :trumpet:

The Reason for suggesting Countries have their own flag was so we didnt get The Isle of Wight etc..........but frankly ANY Country with a Silly linked Reason is Good enough. Its just an opportunity to have gentle fun at others nationality.

Anyway why should Wales have 3 Flags AS WELL as the Union Jack. Seems very unfare to me.lol
