1. algebra is arabic, 2. in the year 100 BC, there were already major empires around the world including the roman, greek, egyptian etc.
I love India for its large population of vegetarians, and the incredible gift it has given the world through its unparalleled cuisine.
An impressive list, but the word "algebra" is Arabic - so was this parallel development?
lol, as in Al-Gebra. terrorizing students through the ages :P
but how many people survived those first surgeries?
"India was once the richest empire
on earth." then what happened to our country, what happened to all those diamonds? We could not have got poor just like that..
As a matter of fact I was even the victim of algebra. I still don't like that subject.
But I studied just for passing in the exams...
Well, I have studied history during my graduation and according to some historians, they believe its from Arab and some believe its from India.
Its still the confusing aspect such as the one, "Where was cricket born?".
Seriously I have no idea, unfortunately they don't maintain the in-patient and out patient list that time.
Even I love all the countries, esp America and Philippines coz the people are so friendly. I hate the countries where they encourage terrorism, and I also hate the individuals who ill-treats woman.
A man who treats his woman like a PRINCESS is a proof that he has been born and raised in the arms of a QUEEN.
just astonishing....really raises the patriotic feeling of mine
Yeah..but Canada has Beavers..so we win.
That's Why i hate History subject
I accept its boring but its the most scoring subject, so I had to take that...
You forgot the most important fact that India is. India is the Worlds largest DEMOCRACY. It is argueably is one of the freest democracies as well. Much more free than anything Europe or anorth america has. The only country that rivals India in Democracy and its freedom is Hong Kong.
We have the illusion of freedom...
The polar bears!....eh?
That I get to call this place home
If you have enough money you can get the hell away from it.
Philippines. The PEOPLE. Lol. Filipinos never lose their smiles. Be it rain or floods and earthquakes. We always can find ways to turn the situation around into something that can be laughed about. Also, Filipinos are really warm and hospitable. And we care for strangers almost like family. But Filipinos suck in one thing. Discipline. Freakin' self-discipline. Hehe. :>
Thanks. Maybe you can come here one day. Hehe. :)

Well, in the US. You can be from Chetchnya and have ill intent with your family. Have the Russian Government warn the US Government of potential of the family having potential terror ties, have the FBI look into these claims and than have the FBI give up and give their blessing to the family. The family gets all the social welfare benefits they could want. The kids go to one of the best high schools in Boston, somehow get money to acquire a BMW<br />
The family gets radicalized through the internet or mosques or some other ways, the older brother after beats up his wife a couple years ago, the mom shoplifts $1,600 dollars worth of things at Lord & Taylor Dept. Store, the older son goes back to Chetchnya for 6 month possibly to become trained at building pressure cooker bombs, and the younger son somehow gets enough funding together to go to UMASS Dartmouth that is $21,000 a year. And you blow up the finish line of the Boston Marathon, what a great place!<br />
You can have all the ill will in the world, get benefits that other more deserving immigrants who actually value this country would love tl have and actually be appreciative of, yet we give it to losers who go kill other, that is how unique and wonderful the USA is.
...most of our citizens (and others) are pleased to live in Canada, but are generally lacking in nationalistic furor. In most instances, we feel that everyone has a right to their own opinion, and rarely send our few troops or operatives as advisors to another country's government. On the other hand, we do have lots of oil and fresh water, and a miniscule national defence initiative (relying largely on our humour and affability to see us through), so, if I have offended any armed-to-the-teeth neighbours by so responding to this question, I do apologize.<br />
i can eat what i want as much as i want, ive gained so much weight now lol please ad me
