    Default The Olympics are almost over but

    I think this makes a lot of sense, to rank the medal count.

    Reasonable for all. If you have seven pennies, two nickels, and one dime while I have 2 pennies, two nickels and two dimes, who has the greater worth? You have ten coins (value 27) and I have six coins (32).

    Oh, I must add, if Canada had more medals than USA but USA has more golds, what do you think our southern friend would be saying?

    Looks like Canada is ranking third in the Paralympics with seven gold! USA is eighth with two gold!

    I agree!!
    It sounds like even some Americans were upset, though, that they didn't rank it properly.

    It's good to see I am the center of attention on yet another thread. Your obsession with me is a real compliment.

    Much obliged.

    Who is even talking about you? Unless ARISTOTLE = USA. I didn't see your name mentioned once.
