Wysteria Regional Message Board
Well the backstory to that is something like:
Greece: "We need money! World Bank & IMF please help!"
Banks: "Sure guys, we can set you up with a low (variable) interest loan, which we can then bundle and sell to investors at AA/AAA ratings, just like the U.S. did with subprime mortgages! (nobody tell Greece or anyone who actually lives in the EU)"
Greece: "Thanks guys! You really saved our butts!... Why do our statements say 35% interest?"
Banks: "Oh, that's an error. Let's just fix that. [bundles projected interest into even larger loan with legal conditions attached], this will bail you right out of your bailout, and prevent you from bankruptcy by preemptively putting you on the kind of payment plan that comes with bankruptcy (except much, much more draconian, going far beyond punitive), and if you sign this right here, we can nationalize the debt on both ends, so that our agreement is government backed! It's like an insurance policy for you!" [passes on debt to EU citizens and washes hands of the affair.]
Germany: "GIVE US OUR MONEY RIGHT NOW OR CUT ALL OF THE FUNDING UNTIL YOU CAN! ALL YOUR MONEY ARE BELONG TO US!"
Greece: "Guys, we can't pay this, and our people are starving and destitute because 'austerity' keeps cutting public welfare!... guys?"
Germany: "How dare you not repay your debts with the money you should be making after we crippled your economy!"
Greece: "But Germany never payed it's promised debts from either World War, and most economists agree that was the reason for your 'economic miracle'. How can you enforce a double standard?!"
Germany: "YOU HEARD IT EVERYBODY GREECE IS A LIAR AND A CHEAT!" [proceeds to beat Greece like it owes them money]
Banks: [swimming in moneypits LMAO]
Or at least that's my take. It's equally and oppositely biased for objectivity.
Feel free to continue this in PMs. (not here)

Should be a good night, tonight, for Northern Lights...if it wasn't for all the clouds spoiling the show.
I don't think I've dismissed as many issues as I have been lately. It's like an issue mine field out there!
Sometimes you can go straight to the NS Technical forum to find someone foaming at the mouth over the effects of a new issue. That can be helpful.
