    Yes I realise that you don't have to have 12 people, but the fact that they had exactly 12 makes it suspicious to me. It's almost as if they are boosting numbers to get to that 12 so that there isn't any problem with the competition. This along with the fact that more than half of the 12 are totally unheard of and just turned up and DNFed.

    There are three Thoms, and all are from the UK.

    Take note that
    E1a) The maximum length of a solution is 80 (moves and rotations).

    They could have the excuse "we took too many moves, because we used beginners' solutions."

    Not really notable, since that is the British spelling of the name. That's like remarking that everyone named Tomasz is from Poland.

    The USA has the most WCA cubers of any country (over 2000), yet there is only 1 WR held by an American. Australia has less than 60 WCA cubers, but we have the most WRs (8) out of any country.

    There is no such thing as "only" when it comes to WRs. Break one and you will understand!

    Who is that "we"? How many WRs do you have? Yeah, I'm picking on you again, but I just think that cubing and cubing records are really not nationality issues. Feliks has the most WRs and he happens to be an Australian. That doesn't make any other Australian cuber better.

    By your logic, Hungary tops Australia because we have 6 WRs and have less than 10 million hungarians live here, while YOU have over 21 million people over there with your teeny tiny 8 WRs. Haha!

    I hope you see now, how stupid that sounds...
