    D800 is actually not a good camera.

    Don't follow so many people jammed up the queue.

    Greece should just sell a few of its resort islands on 100-200 year leases to meet its debt obligations


    I dont remember the blardy World Bank and IMF being so kind to asian countries with an easy bailout in 98'

    I still remember Goh Chok Tong's response to Indonesia when they wanted to borrow some $$$ in 1998. Major pwnage for Habibie.

We are not in the same class. After all we are only three million people. Just a little red dot on the map. Where is the capacity to help 211 million people?"

    Pause and think carefully - ask yourself. Truthfully....in your heart of hearts... do you believe that the full 100% of the hundreds of billions of Euro that EU gave to Greece will end up benefiting the normal ordinary Greek citizens. The bulk of it may end up somewhere else. And that is basically why these bail outs will not save Greece. Not because the normal ordinary Greek citizens are undeserving.
