So, what I propose is this:
A website that allows people from each country to submit, message-board style, a basic framework for what they think makes their lousy pothole so great. Then, people within the countries can look amongst the archives and vote, finally agreeing over what they think their
country has contributed, culture-wise, to the whole.
So, sort of like a global resume battle.
1. Canada - donuts
2. America - Western movies
3. Japan - Anime
4. Mexico - Taco Bell
It's all for fun of course, so hopefully no fancypants dictators will take it seriously. (We're watching you, Bush)
Just imagine the possibilities with this scenario:
"Katrina has just got home from work. She's checking her mail, sorting through the bills. All of a sudden, a thought strikes her - 'I'm not being a true part of the global mass media prescence!'
So she goes to her computer, votes onsite, and is filled with the satisfaction that comes from being a part of something as grand as this wonderous website.
She then falls down the stairs and dies."
The question is - who WOULDN'T want this website?
