They are incredibly vicious apparently and very territorial, if one encounters a hippo, they just charge at you and kill you on the spot. They kill far more people than lions, or crocodiles or any others. But they look kind and cute.

Ok, smart ass. I was actually talking about — the most dangerous for a human being amongst the big animals, mammals. But never mind — you didn't get it right.

I have to go now, speak later.

Well, I personally was surprised to find out that hippos are more dangerous and deadly for humans than .say. lions, or rhinos, or crocs.

Little post Soviet space countries like Lithuania, Latvia, etc — well, after they broke free from the USSR, they started hating Russia with venom and idealizing the EU structure — hoping that by being there — they would become like Finland, or Denmark or Sweden. The thing is — Denmark and Sweden are very Eurosceptical countries, they have never joined the Euro currency and in general, those countries built up their wealth not because, but in spite of the EU. In fact — in the old world (old European countries) — no one idealizes the EU. The mentality of those who are from the post Soviet space is different. They criticize the Russian mentality, but they are no different, if not worse. They ended up jumping from the frying pan into the fire — ended up being dictated what to do from above in a similar arrangement to that of the USSR. They make out here on the forum like they are happy with it, but they are not. Life there is not much better than it was before, there is a lot of poverty, a lot of emigration from there, shrinking population, etc. The EU is not a good organisation to be in.

One particular thing. EU forced Baltic States to destroy some parts of their competitive industry because they didn't want additional competition. EU needed their markets and cheap labor. This is one of the reasons Baltic States have to rely on EU help and aren't doing really great.

Good man, don't get offended about «not a proper pub», it is the truth. I had a couple of drinks after work as well with my mates, but only a couple of pints — as I have a run tomorrow morning.

The music you put on is rubbish, this is proper English pub music — this is the kind of thing they play on the juke box when people get pissed and start singing karaoke

I'm not offended at all. I was kidding a bit. My point is - if you have a good company of friends - you can have fun almost in any place. And they don't play Frank there.
They played smth from Red hot chili peppers today. And many other songs but I can't remember them

Your way of looking at it is a bit simplistic, if you don't mind me saying. Whatever industrial heritage those countries carried over from the Soviet times — it was not competitive over here, there was no demand for their goods. But they could have carried on trading on the post Soviet space — if they didn't decide to intergrate with the EU so closely so quickly. But that is the EU all over — they don't allow the countries who are in it to trade with anyone else. Everything gets decided by Brussels — what quotas the member countries have for production, what goods they can or cannot produce and the trade deals with the external world are signed as a block. So — if being in the EU made you a poor country — you are in a poverty trap, which only gets worse. This is also what happened to the Mediterranean countries like Greece, Spain, Italy. Their currency got overvalued when they joined the Euro, and their goods are not competitive — even within the EU. It is one thing, when Greece used to sell their olives for Drachmas, and it is another thing, when they are selling their goods for Euros. At the same time — they saturated the EU with German goods, and German currency was undervalued when joining the Euro currency. The whole thing is f ucked up beyond belief and it ain't gonna get better, it is gonna get worse.

Hi, I am cool, yourself?

Yesterday — I had a huge running event, my body is still aching from it. The second half of the day — spent at home with my youngest two and my youngest son's mates — it was a massive playdate he had.

Today it is Father's Day here. Do you have Father's Day in Russia? We were supposed to go to a big event in the Golf Club, but didn't, cause my oldest came back from his «Wild Child» thing in Germany this morning totally tired and my husband came from Portugal — totally knackered as well, so we had a huge roast dinner, kids gave him presents and then we all had a big sleep — well, they did, me and my daughter made a chocolate cake, they just ate it and went to the Common to play football.
