Yay Imperialism!

Me: Hey, I was just tweaking (product) when I saw that South Africa was listed as being in Europe. Is that a bug?

Coworker: No, that's correct. South Africa is in Europe.

This is not actually as crazy as it sounds, as it turns out that this product cares a whole lot more about time zones than actual geography, but it was still an amusing moment.

Of course we have had a minor bug with the country listing, where we keep losing India. I blame Ghandi.
