wow, i forgot about him, good player. lets not forget about the current talent in the nhl, peter forsberg and markus naslund, both from the same small town in sweden? lots of talent from that town apparently, something in the water.

America? Do you mean North America, Central America, and South America?

They all got good things for them, although they are continents/landmasses not countries!
Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him...a super-callused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

America is short for the United States of America, just like Mexico is short for the United States of Mexico or China is short for the People's Republic of China.
