Other more deadly pranks include:
Prank #1: Reducing the coefficient of friction of the road surface so your braking distance is much longer than you expect
Prank #2: Lowering the superelevation of curves so you skid off them at what you thought was a safe speed
Prank #3: Increasing rate of change of gradient on hilltops so grip is reduced and you crash into the vehicles you can't see over the brow of the hill

I was going to mention the non-colored countries in the title text, but Middle East's borders were SO ugly (not real life ones, the ones I drew) that I had to mention it. You may have noticed that southern Italy and Greenland aren't colored either...All non-colored regions are the color of the closest country, and they being white is a political statement (that is, that I'm to lazy to color the friggin map piece by piece, so why don't you all become friends once and for all so we can leave it white with the reference "World")...you may say, I'm a dreamer...

Also, I want to note a few things: First, it always bugged me that you guys (that is, English speakers) call "Australia" to the continent...Of course maybe we (Spanish speakers) are wrong, but I'm pretty sure that The continent is Oceania and "Australia" is just the country.

Second, Australia is blue because I thought that, culturally, it's "the west", but geographically, it's "the East" (of course, I've never been there so I may be wrong...). It's also very important that you note the exclamation mark (Australia!) . This has a message: It's not weird, it's unique. And happy. Just imagine a kid opening a Christmas present and yelling the name of the present (Australia!)

Oceania is a cultural region. I tried using that on tests a few times before, and have had it stated to me on national tests that, "For Australia, Southeastern Asia, Oceania, and Micronesia/Other, Use Australia as a continent"

So it's not like we're trying to be wrong, or anything, but that whole area might as well be governed by the same body; Cultural and historical ties between Australia and the surrounding islands (mainly NZ) are great. This doesn't mean that we'd particularly answer "Australia" to "What continent is NZ in?", I generally treat them as separate. Also, the micro/polynesian islands /should/ be a part of Asia, culturally speaking.

I guess it just freaks me out that you call a continent and a country in said continent the same (I get the feeling there's going to be some horrible misunderstanding or something...), but I know it's not like "we are right and you are wrong", I meant that, whenever I hear it, it feels...weird, it's a cultural thing, I guess, we are all right. Or wrong. Or something. (same with the "1 billion" thing)

Yeah. I have an identical twin brother, and I think that the confusion that causes dwarfs the confusion of any similar internet names by a thousand fold. (Incidently my brother's name starts with M, so to combine our names, you get... Mack. OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD!)
