Greece

Ok, so now we know that when I predicted four months ago that the basic plan Greece had was to accept as much hard currency as possible from the ECB and the IMF and then say "fuck you" and get out of the Eurozone and refuse to pay any of them back I was right on the money.

Because, honestly, the referendum they just called is one they know won't pass. So when it fails they then have the legal excuse to go back to the Drachma, refuse to honor euro denominated debts, and then devalue the currency to the point where people can still have jobs.

You know - the way Argentina and practically every country in history that has been in a huge debt crisis has dealt with things, because it's the only solution that works.

The real question is why Europe as a whole didn't see this coming and didn't stop giving them money a long time ago.

I mean, seriously, German bankers didn't figure this shit out when I was able to?

Oh well, I guess things are about to get a lot less expensive for me in Europe.

The Blind Leading The Blind

The least blind blind item in history.

[BlindGossip] Why would someone get married simply to get divorced? Money. Fame. Her romances make the front page of every tabloid, and her weddings will make more money than they cost. Since she has no discernible talent, she will use what she has to make and stay in the headlines. She believes that a rotating door of romances and grooms will keep her in the spotlight long after most stars burn out. When you have such lofty ambitions, it helps to have lofty goals. Her close family and friends know about these goals (although many of them don’t approve). What are those goals? 1. Babies with more than one wealthy baby daddy. 2. More marriages than Elizabeth Taylor.
