it's better be Anfield

In light of the lackluster performance of my beloved MU the only real BPL contenders this season are :

- Chelsea ( dirty russian oil money )
- Man City ( dirty arab oil money )
- Liverpool ( old fashioned dirty american hedge fund money :)) )

Go Liverpool!!!

Cold War v2.0

so that's how it feels to be in the Cold War and see it from the other side. Who could have ever imagined that. The funny thing is that "rollback" never accomplished anything, but those "C-" students probably can't comprehend the notion.

Only in America

I was going through the passport through the Immigration control at EWR the other day :

....

Officer : What countries have you visited on your trip?
Me : Germany, Belarus.
Officer : Oh, Belarus. Bobruyisk?
Me : ???????

getting to the luggage area when somebody touches my arm, points to my ManU scarf and with a lot of excitement ( and some heavy British accent ) yells : "Not that nice to a be a fan anymore ( alluding to the dismal start ). Go Gunners!!" and then he shows off his Arsenal gear :)))

we are complaining about ~ 8%

Unemployment is expected to climb to 12.2 percent in 2013, up from 11.4 percent last year. An “increasing labor-market mismatch” will keep the jobless rate high in the medium term and bodes poorly for those who have been out of work for extended periods, according to the EU report.

Spain ~ 27%, Greece ~ 25%, Italy ~ 11.5%, while under-25 rate is way higher ...

advantages and disadvantages

every time I'm getting in my teenage son's room it makes me think twice about the abundance of the space in the house. Growing up in 2 room apartment forced us to keep it neat all the time contrary to what I observe on entrances .... How in the world they can live in this kind of mess???? maybe it's just a very "rebellious" offspring of mine ...
