[CNN] Will the royal wedding break the Internet? - Page 13  

post #121 of 205
I was on the phone with a tech support guy from Intel for about an hour yesterday. Where he is from, today is a holiday because of the wedding. And I don't think he lived in the UK. Just somewhere in Europe. So I understand why so many would be watching it. There are a lot of people in Europe.

I agree, so much nicer than constant bad news. Cheered me up

Well it depends on how the line of succession plays out. If Charles does defer to William then she will.

I dunno. I mean who are we to comment when this website loves everything zombie?? It's just as stupid and not even real.

Anyways it'd be funny if twitter went down as I hate twitter.

How could anyone prove you wrong, unless she dies or get's divorced? Why do you think she won't be queen?

Today is a holiday in the UK, not sure anywhere else is having a holiday because of this?

If you spoke to someone in the UK who didn't sound English that would come as no surprise what so ever, they were probably Polish/Czech/Bangladeshi/Kurdish/Turkish/Indian/Lithuanian etc, etc, etc (delete as applicable).

Depending on how you view the borders, there are roughly

500m people in the EU

And 730-850m depending on whether and how you count the Geographical boundaries of Europe.

As a comparison there's some 300m in the US.



Edit: And about 15 people in Canada.
