Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..

these hockey players are nothing to go gaga about -- they are OK, and a certain type, but that's about it. I guess it all depends on the benchmark. I like this link swedish vs british nighclub. To my shame i've never been to Sweden, but British night club is pretty accurately depicted, at least if you make pictures of the natives.

Algeria's Taoufik Makhloufi thrown out of Olympics for not tryinghe was entered in both the 800 and 1500m (track)qualified in the 1500, decided he didn't want to do the 800 as well (so he could give the 1500 a better shot ?), dropped out of the 800 after 200m and has now been booted from the 1500
