It isn't just Greece. The rest of the delightfully named PIGS (Portugal, Italy, Spain and Greece) are in real trouble too. Weak economies compared with their North European counterparts.

From an EU economic perspective "supporting" the PIGS makes sense. After all it is only like the rich South East of the UK supporting say the poorer North East.

On a personal note I believe it is quite possible that one or more of the PIGS will have to leave the euro. I selfishly hope that it includes Spain.  Immediately it would make Spain a cheap holiday destination. The Spanish econbomy seems to be based on two areas. Tourism (down 10% last year on 2008) and building. It has more empty properties than the rest of the EU put together.

I, like many people, think they got in on the basis of some very dubious economic figures, so no surprise here. 8-)

How to Stop Choking – Australian Style.
An attractive young woman sitting in an Adelaide restaurant suddenly stood up and began to cough desperately.

After a few seconds it became apparent that she was in real distress,
Two local men, Kenzie and Brian, drinking at the next table, rushed to her side with concern on their faces.
Kin ya swaller? asked  Kenzie.
The woman signalled: 'No!', desperately shaking her head.
Kin ya breathe?" asked  Brian.
The woman shook her head again violently: No!!!
With that, Kenzie moved behind her, and lifted up the back of her dress, yanked down her thong, and ran his tongue up and down the crack of her a***e.
This shocked the woman into such a violent spasm that the obstruction flew out of her mouth and she began to breathe normally again.
Kenzie swaggered back to his table and took a deep swig of his beer.
Brian said in admiration  "My oath Kenzie, I'd heard o’ that bloody
Hind Lick Manoeuvre, but I never believed it could really work!

Y'know" said the Scotsman, "I still prefer the pubs back home.
In Glasgow there's a little bar called McTavish's.  Now the landlord there goes out of his way for the locals so much that when you buy four drinks he will buy the fifth drink for you."
"Well", said the Englishman, "at my local, the Red Lion, the barman there will buy you your third drink after you have bought the first two"
"Ahhhhh, that's nothing", said the Irishman. "Back home in Dublin there's Ryan's Bar.  Now the moment you set foot in the place they'll buy you a drink, then another, in fact all the drinks you like. Then when you've had enough drinks they'll take you upstairs and see that you get laid. "All on the house."
The Englishman and Scotsman immediately scorn the Irishman's claims, but he swears every word is true.
"Well," said the Englishman "did this actually happen to you?"
"Not me meself, personally, no," said the Irishman, "but it did happen to me sister."

In the 1400's a law was set forth in England that a man was allowed to beat his wife with a stick no thicker than his thumb. Hence we have 'the rule of thumb'

Many years ago in Scotland , a new game was invented. It was ruled 'Gentlemen Only...Ladies Forbidden'...and thus the word GOLF entered into the English language.

The first couple to be shown in bed together on prime time TV were Fred and Wilma Flintstone.

Every day more money is printed for Monopoly than the U.S. Treasury.

Men can read smaller print than women can; women can hear better.

Coca-Cola was originally green.

Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair.

The first novel ever written on a typewriter: Tom Sawyer.

The San Francisco Cable cars are the only mobile National Monuments.

Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king from history:

Spades - King David
Hearts - Charlemagne
Clubs -Alexander, the Great
Diamonds - Julius Caesar

111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321

Well I never knew that!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
