Indeed. That's the entire reason economists exists. There are market flaws and there are government flaws. Capitalism is like a force of nature: saying it's evil means nothing, and trying to get away from it is impossible. So you should learn how you can properly focus it to make everyone's lives better, which, to be honest, so far it overwhelmingly has.

Agreed.

@Feral: Every legislative body thinks that not only it's laws will be followed to the word, but also that the intent of the law will be achieved perfectly. I don't agree with your bullshit defeatism though.

That bullshit is based on experience with application of scientific discoveries to industry. All of ours were shot down by beaurocrats, often for nonsensical reasons. Privately, even some of them agreed their interpretation of the law was bollocks, but blocking us saved them work. As we had no money for lawyers, going to Warsaw several times and waiting years for court rulings, our discoveries were not implemented in Poland. It is funny, to have millions in grant money, but so legally restricted you could not even patent, as nobody predicted mony for that would be necessary in an industrial grant...

As for Poland, speaking of the government counting on the laws to be followed or its intent achieved is a joke. 70% of our law comes from Brussels. It is directly implemented, as any amandements are forbidden by our accesion treaty. As a result, 70% of the time, Polish lawgiver has no clue what the intent of the law was and cannot change it even if it matches Polish conditions as a cow fits a cavalry charge.

Ah, to end on a positive note, our discoveries do live on. There are factories in Hayderabad and Changsha that make them. Of course we get jock shit out of it, but this is how Hindu and Chinese pay tantiems, no?

I see. I've taken your second paragraph to be speaking about capitalism in general, not focused on Poland.

Turns out a pyrosome is not one creature but a colony of little "zooids" bound together by gelatine.

The method uses both fixed features and grooming habits, so if you let your beard grow you can throw it off.

US just bombed the Syrian capital, and from what I hear ISIS are trying to capitalize on the aftermath and Syrian forces are working to try and hold them off. Time will tell how this escalates.

As someone who descends from german immigrants that landed in the south, I can confirm. Some towns there used to only speak german or italian. This Photo in question is probably Gramado, a town that gets most of it's money from tourists, so keeping things looking like that is more for commercial reasons than tradition. I've been there twice.

The southern states in question are now broke and riddled with violence, so it's the full european experience.

Aww... Sorry to hear that. At least you will get many white immigrants soon, to colonize the rather empty and now productive interior. There is a Gescheft to be done on almost anything!

So this is over a year old, but it's still an example of national level trolling: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-38625872
