I don't even care now many people speak a certain language . The world and I know which is the most important language - English .

This immature flagwaving , with every sentenced followed by !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! , from the spanish children on here is boring . You can only take so much bullshit from a country that has only been a democracy for 50 years and . A country that had colonies in south america that have all been piss-poor third world failures . A country where they were still riding on donkeys 20 years .

No Spanish Concorde . No Spanish Aston Martin , Jaguar or Rolls Royce . In fact what has spain ever made ? I can't think of any modern industrial product that the spanish have invented whether it be a tv , car , plane , tank , ship or bloody vaccuum cleaner .

Spain .....one of europe's second rate nations that has just started to look a bit better thanks to the EU and the richer more successful countries like the UK , Germany , Holland & France handing it money

Spain.....the type of country where they would openly go hysterical in the streets if they ever won the eurovision song contest or actualy won anything because they never have .

Pathetic bunch of children.....runing around an internet forum getting your little greasy third world gang together and getting all excited over a silly little online poll . If you had a better history and hadn't been such a failure you A . wouldn't be so bloody excited over nothing and B . Wouldn't be so ******* desperate to get noticed .

Greasy ******* third world spicks .

And what's the problem of using Spanish in this forum? It's the world's 2nd language in importance and the 4th in number of speakers, surely there will be a moderator that understands Spanish. And in the future it'll MORE important and with more speakers, so it won't be a bad idea learning it...
@Donqui: Whenever these provocations stop this thread will return to its subject...let's all of us make an effort..

Oh please , spanish isn't even a Eurovision Song Contest language let alone an Olympic language ! lol !

MISGUIDED AND FALSE SENSE OF PRIDE .

The fact is that the last democracy on spain is only 30 years old. Also i am 30 years old and never never have seen a person riding on donkey on that time.

It's obvious it has to be London. Why? Because France, Spain, the US and Russia just aren't as passionate about their sports.

London 2012 will go down as the greatest Olympics in history.

If you really think about it, not getting the olympics might be a blessing for those of you whose country is not picked to host. If you look at the 04' games, the price to build and host the olympics has grown so high, making money back takes decades and in Greece's case, maybe never.
