    I guess, when they thought of Egypt being in the "Middle East" they excluded Africa right away. Just a common sense. As for the Nile... you expect too much, my friend. There are two major rivers in Mesopotamia, and one of them could be the Nile... Who knows? You spend too much time over the useless geography maps. Get outdoors, have a beer, catch some good game!

    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    Lisa: Bart, water will only go the other way in the southern hemisphere.
    Bart: What the hell is the Southern Hemisphere?
    Lisa: Haven't you ever looked at your globe? [Tears off wrapping paper on a gift with a tag reading "Happy Birthday! Love Grampa" on it] See, the Southern Hemisphere is made up off everything below the equ... [stares at Bart] this line.
    Bart: So say in Argentina, and Rand McNally [pointing at Rand McNally logo on globe], all their water goes backwards?
    Lisa: Uh-huh. In fact, in Rand McNally, people wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people.
    Bart: [impressed] Cool!
