It's worth it man. At least for me, just escaping the states has been incredibly refreshing. I.. I like Europe quite a bit. Maybe I just like the change? I have yet to see. Well should you come to Germany most definitely let me know.
There's no need to be kleinbl00, we already have one of those.
I came here for work. It's a rather long and complicated story, but the application was mostly taken care of for me.
I had a rather long discussion with two Israelites after they ordered shawarma and received döner. Apparently there's a big difference.. not that I could tell, or they could adequately describe. Either way, I'm surprised the trend has yet to hit the United States. It is really the best late night drunk food
I'm at a pub in Poprad, Slovakia with about 2 hours or so to burn waiting for my train. I'll try to catch up on replies, we'll see.
The High Tatras are a dream. It's a resort area with dirt cheap prices. I mean who vacations in Slovakia? I've skied, met maybe the best dog ever, learned to snowboard, climbed to a mountain lake in a blizzard, and bonded with the local goulash man. I'm actually sad that I have to leave for.. Prague. Imagine that?
Things are moving fast.. Turns out it's a lot of work to move halfway across the world. Who would've thought?
I had my stem cells pulled by forever labs yesterday. None other then thenewgreen himself appeared before the procedure! Unsurprisingly he's an astoundingly awesome guy. I don't think I've ever seen anyone so enthusiastic at 645 in the morning(especially after I mentioned finding FL through hubski). We very briefly talked about FL, hubski, and ethereum. I don't think the conversation could have been any more hubski.
In other news I finished up my skydiving A license. Are there any skydivers around this site? I may start trying to convince people. Seriously, it's amazing.
- Mr Putin cannot arrange his succession using his bloodline or the Communist Party apparatus. Perhaps he will anoint a successor. But he would need someone weak enough for him to control and strong enough to see off rivals—an unlikely combination. Perhaps he will try to cling to power, as Deng Xiaoping did behind the scenes as head of the China Bridge Association, and Mr Xi may intend to overtly, having conspicuously avoided naming a successor after this week’s party congress. Yet, even if Mr Putin became the éminence grise of the Russian Judo Federation, it would only delay the fatal moment. Without the mechanism of a real democracy to legitimise someone new, the next ruler is likely to emerge from a power struggle that could start to tear Russia apart. In a state with nuclear weapons, that is alarming.
What? Are we going to forget about Medvedev? Putin has full power to find and emplace a suitable successor. This author grossly underestimates the extent of Russia's kleptocracy and national pride in Putin. The next president of Russia will be whoever he endorses. It'll probably be a solid choice to maintain the current government. That or he stages some whazoo shit that implodes so he has an excuse to change the constitution and run for another term to "save the country"
