I re-posted this on my facebook page because I thought it was interesting. Jesus, people are FREAKING OUT left and right. Turns out I know a lot of people who HATE being associated with anything third world.

I find the itty bitty Australia hilarious. Because your largest state (Texas) fits into our largest state (Western Australia) seven times. However we have a lot less people, hence the tiny representation of our economy :P

Grew up in Poland, but now living in Saudi? I demand a recount!
