Not the same poll, of course :)

I'm not sure I agree with the inclusion of JCVD, I guess Van Damme probably meant "From Damme", so he's not named "like" the town, he's named after the town.

I've got two accounts with maybe 200 lists. Some are a work in progress. Of course I've only been at this since August!
Still waiting on one of my original works polls to go live.
It has been 4 Months! I had 18 go live the first 2.
The only original poll was the poll when Carol Channing passed.
I was the only one that did one.
I wait patiently. I think some of my polls are good enough.
But I have to wait for my probation to end I guess!
Cheers.
Will look at some of your lists when I get a chance.
Summer is coming here in SoCal 70 Degree weather is only a couple of weeks away!
Will be working less here when that happens!

P.S. I know how the Australian locals pronounce it:
"Nicholson, mate! - is that a kangaroo over there?"
Kidding.  :P

Thanks for the suggestions.
If you read above please you'll notice I need names attached to non USA people.
Cheers.
Good choices.
I had John Denver for Denver but removed him to make room for non US names.

Ed, please make correction for Ukraine (now it is "Ukrane").

I suggest to keep similar approaches for USA and UK, or U.S.A. and U.K., when using dots. But not USA vs. U.K. as it is now.

Also I suggest to provide full names for the States, so all of them look similar as #17 "Reno, Nevada, USA".

Thanks

Actor: Nicholson (although since he'll get so many votes, I might go with Tilda Swinton or Regina King)
City: Probably Paris (although there are several where I've never been)

This might be one of those polls where the top vote getter is not a run away.
