One of things that has had me scratching my ass for many years now is why the fuck does the media keep saying "Myanmar formerly known as Burma" or "Myanmar also known as Burma". We are the only country in the world that still calls the country Burma. The country changed its name in 1989 and for a long time the US and UK refused to call it Myanmar. But now we are alone in refusing to just call it Myanmar. The BBC calls it Myanmar, so maybe the UK has given up on the juvenile ploy of adding the aka Burma to the name.
They don't say Sri Lanka formerly known as Ceylon. Or Zimbabwe formerly called Rhodesia. Or Bangladesh formerly know as East Pakistan. So why the fuck do they persist in the Junior High bullshit with the name of the country??
Kinda reminds me of the joke when they decided to switch which side of the road to drive on in Sweden. The conservatives argued that they shouldn't rush into it. First they should let the trucks switch from driving on the left to driving on the right and then after a few months the cars would switch sides!!
