This is what my grandfather thinks. From what I understand, the Greek economy failed because people and companies don't pay the taxes they are supposed to pay and because of state pensions. But that's Mr. Changsha's expertise.

Well...the greek economy? I have some understanding (and views) on both political and economic concepts, but remember I live in something of a news-free environment. Of course I could read newspapers online etc etc but ever since the conservatives kicked those lying little shits out of power I have basically felt that the world is all fine again (yep...pretty narrow, uk, china, us, eu), or at least a whole lot better, and promptly turned my mind off current events for the first time in about ten years.

I would suppose, however, that if a brain drain was serious and heavy enough, and new immigrants of equal quality were not found, that it is possible that a country couldn't produce enough actual contributors to the public purse. But it is more likely to be a case of ridiculous government spending linked to tax avoidance, overly-strong unions depressing growth, an unrealistic and self-delusional body politic and media etc etc.

Fair point.

Can someone phone-in a bomb threat to the Hungarian Parliament? I know a photographer in Budapest who is available on short notice.

I'd do it myself but I'm like 2 bomb threats away from getting deported.

Well... my grandfather is a 93 year old man who barely speaks English (although he's been here for 77 years). He's a pretty smart guy (and was successful in business), but I doubt he has the answers as to why Greece has failed.

I guess part of the German-France Power Grab stipulated that state owned grass surrounding fountains may not be watered.

I dunno why AOG is winning, I've actually seen him run. Just the other weekend he was running away from my van. I had 3 big sacks of free candy in the back weighing me down and I still almost caught him.

Saxi, I think you've reversed the pictures. Clearly the one with the columns is the one that houses a statue of Zeus.

Finland has been reported to the appropriate mods for plagiarism.

Voting now is also open in the "Who Has the Best Official Residence?" competition.

The first round is "United States"; La Fortaleza is beating the competition with Iolani Palace coming a close second and the White House and Drumthwacket trailing.

The second round is "Canader", followed by "Europe" and then more ...

I was going to vote for Greece but then saw that the grass around the fountain was whithered so I decided to vote for Finland. Then I looked at Finland's picture and saw only one lonely person standing there and then saw greece with lively communities so Greece won back my vote. congrats Greece.
