Q) What is the difference between an Italian woman and a hippo?

A) 40 pounds and a black dress.

The math is too complicated for anyone to understand. I was almost killed in a car accident. If I didn't have that accident, would I have helped the injured teens that I helped counsel after they had brain injuries? The interconnected math is infinite.. so, good luck explaining it all away with silly, singular step reasonings.

CNBC can't report anything but happy news.  They're afraid of their power to make people freeze.  What was that cartoon way back when with the freeze machine?  Who knew CNBC would acquire such.  They are a cartoon.

my favorite Cramer saying, back in late 1999 - 2000 he many times wrote JDSU stands for Just Don't Sell Us.  Before it's reverse split it maxed out around 120 and then went to single digits

a former colleague of mine in the software industry migrated to italy. he said the difference between italy and the uk was that, when people in the uk need to speak to their colleague, they will send and email, send an im, pick up the phone, or simply walk over to the person in question. when an italian needs to speak to his colleague, he will open his door and shout through the building.

I've worked with enough italians myself to know that if they say: "FINISHED! I'M DONE" = "Maybe I'll do it next week"

and it wasn't just 1 company I worked with, it where dozens of italian companies and the rule applied to all of them.

Lived and worked in Southern Italy for three years. Everything that needed to be done was always done domani.  That's all one ever heard like, when will the car be ready.  Answer: domani, domani.  Or when will those parts be delivered?  'Domani signore.'  And when domani arrives you ask again and get 'Allore Signore, domani, domani.'  Domani or tomorrow would often take a month to show up.

When I worked with Brits, well they didn't spoke English at all, there in the island, 'coz they were all INDIANS!

You should see the productivity with those fine chaps you Brits over imported in your "knowledge eCONomy".


Meanwhile, I'll take any day, an Italian made car (Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Masserati, even Fiat) over any British made car. For that matter, I'll take any Italian product over any British made product.

Wines, food, cars (heck, that's all I need actually). Even the country is way more beautiful than that cloudy island of yours will ever be, no matter how many Indians and Pakis you guys import there, for "variety of cultures".

What do you "super productive Brits do?" . Rioting as I see it lately.
