Interesting......someone I know has recently spent a year, teaching English in China.

She said that they had a throng of secret internet police, monitoring what their kin were searching for on the internet.

One key word they were paranoic about was "freedom"

I haven't looked it up yet, but I will now.

Nope, Oz and NZ again.

Maybe they spend all their time in NZ googling because there's bugger all else to do.

When one searches for both "slap" and "tickle", it produces quite interesting results.

1. The UK prefers a bit more slap than tickle.

2. Australia prefers quite a bit more tickle than slap.

3. The US likes roughly an equal amount of each.

4, ..and NZ prefers a hell of a lot more tickling.
