The discussion came up when you started the medal thread with that great big chip on your shoulder.

If I have a chip on my shoulder :rofl: then you are much more balanced than I am as you have a chip on both of yours :saint:

I still think they should do standings based on medals / capita ;)

Denmark has 1 medal per 32,339 people. :) Cumulatively.

The chip on my shoulder is cramping my style. Oh and the whole having fun at the Olympic Stadium too. I have such a horrible life. :drama:

So anyway who is leading the medal table at the moment? I haven't had time to check.

China is leading in golds and medals! So you're off the hook, you can rest. :P

oops I'm behind. USA leads in golds and medals. Fred can rest but not so peacefully. :(

ETA: Better yet, but Really's method, China is still ahead. I actually like the cumulative method the best of those displayed so far.

What about North Carolina, BlueRidge? I think we can count 3 (Women's 8 rowing, and 2 sychro diving medals)

OMG, I'm so incompetent, I had North Carolina on my list but neglected to type it in. I had NC tied with FL & MI at the 8th spot on the list with 4 points (dog only knows how I got that :saint: )

Ricky Berens was born in Charlotte and he has a gold in the 4x100 and a silver in the 4x200 relays.

You could also claim Cullen Jones. He was born in New York but his club is in North Carolina. He's got two silvers and a shot at another tomorrow.

Hands off NY's medal winners, Theatregirl! :mad: (well at least according to BR's method, although my method would only count some of Cullen's medals for NY :shuffle:)

Yep. I cheated. A Brit paper has done all the work. :rofl:

And they put purty pictures of the flags on each page which BR didn't do.
