I thought I'd take advantage of the multinational nature of Micechat and set up a thread that allows us to ask fellow MCers questions about their part of the world.
Perhaps you're an American who wants to know the rules of Cricket?
Maybe you're a Brit who doesn't know what the difference is between a Senator and a Governor?
(Don't feel this thread is restricted to US/UK stuff - feel free to ask about anything anywhere...)
I realise that a lot of this info can be found out there on the net, but why not go for that personal touch and engage your "MC-friends-around-the-world"?
I'll start - who out there can explain to me what "sweeps" are and why they are so important?
