Courts and Sports: The ONE WORLD Project
We share this world. Every day people are born with the potential to love and come together and yet we still fight and feud, destroy and war. We want to show we are all ONE WORLD. 214 countries and territories (and counting) have checked in.
One of my favorite lines from Seinfeld is when Jerry describes a game of Risk, as “the game of world domination played by two guys who can barely run their own lives.”
We have taken Risk to another level. A few of us at the office are competing to complete the above map- one of interconnected support.
We were letting it just fill in itself and became curious with it and began recruiting other areas to come aboard. First, we went after Greenland, then China and then Svalbard. We thought China was impossible. It wasn’t. We thought Cuba wouldn’t respond. It did. As did Iraq. And Syria. People are people and want to help out. The high stakes “get” is now North Korea. Someone ask Dennis Rodman to give us a click the next time he’s visiting.
Svalbard remains elusive, although John just heard from “Svalbard Linda,” and a host of others in Svalbard, which makes us think WordPress won’t light it up (as it is owned by Norway). Chad and some of the remaining countries have problems we probably cannot even imagine.
Stupid? Maybe. But the point is to show we are all one world, have some twitter and blog conversations with people living all over the planet and refresh ourselves on geography. We can use all the help we can get. Peace. Love. Live.
The puzzle pieces we need are few and widespread. There is the wonderful island of Svalbard (which is currently driving John mad, as he has gotten it may times over) and a several countries in Europe, Africa and Asia.
We are still missing these countries and territories from around the world- Western Sahara, North Korea, Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Curacao, North Korea, Saint Helena, Eritrea, South Sudan, Kosovo, Svalbard, Jan Mayen, Turkmenistan, Vatican City, Heard Islands, Antarctica, French Southern Territories, Saint Martin, Saint Barthelemy, Nauru, Niue, Tokelau, Pitcairn Islands and Christmas Island.
It’s not scientific, as we’ve had plenty of people checking in without WordPress marking them off. We are told it is an international IP address issue, but we keep trying.
HELP is appreciated. We just need one click and we celebrate. We are happy to provide free koozies for any helpers, however clicks must be legitimate.
