Medal Tally

I was sitting and staring at the medal tally on the “Games”. I call it the “Games” because apparently if you call it anything else you can be sued or some crap. Anyway, I was thinking that Australia didn’t do too bad considering how small we are. In fact, we kicked everyones ass if you look at it as medals per million. Check it!
