New nationality wanted

Dear reader,

Liechtenstein are not demonstrating the same enthusiasm to accept me as they did initially to reject me, so I've applied to come other countries to see how the land lies with them.

Courteous emails despatched to Sao Tome, Lesotho, San Marino and the Federated States of Micronesia, requesting a place at their Olympic tables.

Surely someone would like to take on this gifted athelete(!)?

  • As a leading geologist you may be able to check this idea out....

    Drill a hole through the earths crust somewhere in international waters, preferably on a fault line. Cue big eruption and formation of small island. Colonise it (may need asbestos boots in the first instance), name it, and fire off an email to register it with the IOC as a new country.

    Couldn't be simpler!

  • mr m ... that's good lateral thinking. I'm impressed.

    However, I have just 7 years to go. I suspect that compared with colonisation, civilisation, getting my island registered as a nation with the UN, getting my new island registered as an Olympic state with the IOC and of, course, building an archery school, the actual building of the island should be relatively easy.

    Yours, in it for the long term,

    J

  • Good point. Having checked out some of the detail from past projects can confirm that it is unlikely that apple trees (presumably needed to supply apples for archery practice) are unlikely to have colonized the island by 2012.

    Back to the drawing board.
