Interesting that you chose Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) a former British colony that was ruled by a white minority as an example

Just trying to have some fun and lighten the mood around here. There seems to be a lot of hostility lately.

I mean no disrespect to anybody, nor to any country.

I think what Anton is doing is making fun, of those who lack originality when thinking up a thread title.

Lets face it, "XXXX owns" isn't exactly being imaginative and it doesn't really give you a clue, as to what the post is really about or whether it's worth reading.

If this thread was called "Zimbabwe's Balancing Rocks", now that would be an original title, that would capture some member's interest, as you'd would wonder what he's talking about.

It probably started as a direct result of the Canada owns thread, which in truth was about the success of Canadian athletes at the Winter Olympics.

I must admit, i haven't felt like looking at most of the other copycat "xxxx owns" titles.

However what makes this one different, is Anton has shown some originality, by picking an African country; that is well known for the plight and suffering of it's people, at the hands of a despot.

But, if you asked most members what makes them "own" anything, most would be scratching their head, to think of an answer.

At least with "Argentina owns", you know it could possibly be about their footballing prowess or their polo players being acknowledged as being world class.

It is because UK used to own all of those so-called owners. Now you are showing off reminiscent vestiges of old imperial glory in your threadtitle-negligent attitude. Wink

It's funny the things we attribute to others & ourselves that we are often convinced of, sometimes not as much so,  that may be nowhere near the "truth", but please don't stop guessing; I do it to.
The "OWNS" threads were spun off of the Canadian one. Certainly easy to guess or deduce that. To  say what Anton is doing here... let me put it this way; I don't "know" but i like my guess more than yours.
Maybe Anton was/is doing exactly what he said he was doing?

Where I may agree with you is when you say "if you asked most members what makes them 'own' anything, most would be scratching their head, to think of an answer."
This is only so if they've a certain capacity.
Many might spout an answer quite quickly.

Oh that rascal Anton, he's so clever!


LOL

True

My perception of what Anton thought maybe wide of the mark.

However, I do feel that he likes to play devil's advocate at times; as that's a side of his character, that's come through on other posts before and therefore I sense he is challenging us think outside the box, by posing the question, what does Zimbabwe own.
