I am surprised than we are still that high on such list; I guess than Harper didn't managed to hurt our international image too much, for now...

I don't remember Harper having a bad foreign policy. His environmental policy, hostility towards scientific research, and internal power abuse are deplorable, but few outside Canada really care about them.

Few ouside Canada hear anything about what goes on, politically, in Canada. All most know is hockey, that lots of the cities are clean, and that "eh" and "aboot" are spoken in places.

And that movie about those two hosers, the McKenzie bothers. (Strange Brew).

China rose in popularity? With the amount of bootlegging that goes on in that country, I'm kinda surprised.

Note the number of Han Chinese around the world.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

In these tough economic times, why wouldn't bootlegs go up at least a little in popularity?

When it comes to popularity, I don't think most people care about bootlegs.

Invading other countries, now that makes you unpopular. Bootlegs is small cheese.

I'm wondering if these polling figures were taken before China's shenanigans in the South China sea started flaring up.

Though given the countries the rise in Chinese popularity occurred in, that might not matter.

So, at this rate.. what's going to happen to the EU?

I'm guessing 'wipe all debts and call it a day' isn't high on the list?

Or China's. One is using a "leave it alone" engagement method while the other is using a "hiding" method.

When is the moonbase programme ready? I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

I don't even think it's possible. They did it for Greece but it won't be done again.

Projected moonbase is not until after 2020.
