    I like the proportional flags...it works in this instance!!

    That particular medal table is widely dismissed as useless. Why? Because each country is limited in the number of participants it can send to each Olympics.

    Blue wants you to think the USA sends 305 million Olympians, while Canada sends merely 33 million. This argument, of course, works very well at an elementary school recess...but has no relevance to people not fishing for excuses.
