    I thought that Greece was close to over taking Bulgaria in 2016 :mischief:
    Had no idea that Bulgaria was so unhappy though, but it is quite a poor country and its been trying to get into the EU for some time now. Probably didnt help that the EU sanctions and RU retaliation have put a damper on the economy

    I'm sure you know of the wonderful Bertrand Russell, but he's not remembered primarily as a mathematician or historian.

    Yes, it would be like referring to Zhirinovsky sound-bites as "political philosophy".

    I know what you mean. The way you expressed it suggests that a stellar diplomatic career awaits you. ;)

    Btw, in regards to the bagpipes, I've forgotten Stefan Zahmanov. And I've also discovered I don't particularly like solo bagpipes (for too long, at least), but find them to be a pretty good accompanying instrument, even in the epic cases when it's accompanying other bagpipes.

    Otherwise, I'm only researching (for M2TW and M&B mods) - others are doing the heavy lifting. ;)


    Nah, Greece still has quite a way down to reach us.
    As for the unhappiness: I'm not sure if it's in any way connected to poorness and finances - some of the happier countries in those rankings were quite poorer than us (though it certainly wouldn't hurt to be Danish, of course). I have no real idea what the real cause may be, so I tend to just blame it on communism, which did produce quite a substantial shift in the national psyche (and not for the better).
    Btw, we've been in the EU for 10 years and 3 days now - it's Schengen that we're trying to get into.

    We Australians also appreciate an epic bagpipe solo...



    It served its purpose as a counter to fascism, then authoritarian creeps in several countries eventually took control and distorted it beyond recognition.

    I don't know if it's because I'm just used to our own bagpipes or it's something in the construction of the instrument, but I find Scottish bagpipes easier to listen to. And if it goes with AC/DC, it's a real pleasure.

    That's because Scottish bagpipes are awesome.

    I'll have to enqueue all of the above and issue some comments.

    I believe Tolni was recently complaining about wasted ballots, maybe he could explain further…
