Seriously, when someone says that Vladivostok is the capital of Europe, I just want to smash my keyboard into two halves with my forehead. :nuu:

I actually talked to that guy for an hour straight... can you imagine how I feel? :stare: I sent him maps of Europe and Vladivostok, Russia, and he asked me where Australia is when I was showing him the position of Europe and Africa in the Atlantic ocean...

What? I'm from Europe and from what the internet tells me about it, Vladivostok is in the Siberian part of Eurasia, thousands of miles away from Europe. Only around a third of Russia is technically in the European side of Eurasia and the country isn't even part of the EU. The Union hasn't even formally declared a city capital for itself as it is not a country. Other that... no. :stare:

Yes, I know :facepalm: I can't believe a person from the age of 20 can be so stupid. Also, saying that Africa has nothing but deserts...
Also, if the EU ever proclaims a capital for itself, I guess it would be a political suicide :XD:

The European Union actually has a capital and it's Brussels(Belgium's capital).

I wouldn't refer to it as a capital, but rather as a meeting place of all the countries that are in the EU :paranoid: some sort of HQ or whatever... btw, my country is about to join the EU in the next several years :XD:

Nope, it's proven that it's the capital of the EU.

Brussels Region or Brussels-Capital Region(French: Région de Bruxelles-Capitale, Dutch: Brussels Hoofdstedelijk Gewest), is the capital of Belgium and the de facto capital of the European Union (EU). It is also the largest urban area in Belgium, comprising 19 municipalities, including the municipality of the City of Brussels, which is the de jure capital of Belgium, in addition to the seat of the French Community of Belgium and of the Flemish Community.

Brussels has grown from a 10th-century fortress town founded by a descendant of Charlemagne to more than one million inhabitants. The city has a population of 1.1 million and the metropolitan area has a population of over 1.8 million, both making it the largest in Belgium. Since the end of the Second World War, Brussels has been a main centre for international politics. Hosting principal EU institutions as well as the headquarters of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the city has become the polyglot home of numerous international organisations, politicians, diplomats and civil servants.

I read that wiki too, you should note that "de facto" in front of "capital" ;)

Sort of, and sort of not.

The official stance of the EU is that there is no official capital of the EU.
However, the cities hosting the governing institutions of the EU are often referred to as the capital cities of the EU unofficially.
Since Brussels hosts the European Council, the parliament, and the Council of Ministers, it is most often cited as the capital of the EU, even being referred to as such in several official documents of the EU.

Still, Strasbourg and Luxembourg are also called the capitals of the EU, though far less frequently.

It's surprising how few people know these things. (And admittedly, I had to look it up to verify if Strasbourg and Luxembourg are still the other parts of the "capital".)
Then again, it's not like we know how to do things simple in Europe. :lol:

To be honest, I convinced a 25 year old man that he can get weed from the doctors if he says he has anxiety issues. Same guy thought if we could build a giant digger, it would stop a meteor from hitting the earth. I live in a town of very stupid people. =B

Oh no, a JCB, a soil excavator they use to dig up large amounts of soil in construction. I don't know what you guys call them. =B

I have no idea... we were watching something about the asteroid belt and I ended up having to explain to him about how planets are made... honestly, my generation only produced builders... =/

Not in Ireland. =B Rains all the time, locals are dumb as pig shit and just as narrow-minded. Plus, there is nothing to do, at all.

No, seriously, they don't even know the basics of how the earth moves around the sun because they never paid attention in class and then dropped out when they passed their major middle school exams and become farmers or builders. x_x
