edonnelly wrote:I had thought that Google just prevented all of them from being available, the fact that it is some and not others is really curious. It can't possibly because of copyright, some of the books they are preventing are 150+ years old. And why Penrose's Exercises, but not the Key to the same book? It's very strange.

Amadeus wrote:Salve, Gonzalo. No, I haven't heard of that book. The title looks interesting. I'll have to buy it sometime.
Also, I just did a flash research about the American continent, and it seems that there are actually several models being taught in different parts of the world. The Anglophone community is taught that there is a North America (Canda, USA and Mexico) and a South America. They include the Antartic as a continent also. So that's a total of 7 continents. Whereas the Spanish-speaking community is only taught of 5 continents, id est, one American contient, and no Antartic continent.
Well, live and learn. I'll just stick to the 5 I've known all my life.

Not true, as my co-blogger has shown.

I'm just picky because we Canadians REALLY hate being confused with or grouped with americans.
Canadians are particularly touchy about this due to a) our love-hate relationship with the US and b) the fact that we derive so much of our identity from NOT being American. It's deeply rooted within our psyche.

Klewlis-where is that wonderful Canadian politesse?

Is that building behind you in your photo where they hold the Edmonton Stampede?
Well somebody at the Edmonton Northlands thinks they have a stampede:
Maybe they could hold gladitorial competitions at the Mall (maybe they have already?).
