That's an interesting way to look at it: unfair competition
Yet another sue-crazy fella. I remember reading somewhere that the US has more lawyers than any other country in the world.

Paypal makes man 1000x as rich as THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE

Chris Reynolds, from Delaware, opened up his monthly PayPal statement and was astonished to find he had suddenly been handed a whopping $92,233,720,368,547,800 - roughly 1000 times as much as the GDP of the entire world, which was a relatively paltry $84.97 trillion in 2012, according to the CIA World Factbook.

(...)

Although his fortune would have made him 1,268,689 times richer than Bill Gates, who's worth about $72.7bn, Reynolds' time as the richest man in the known universe was shortlived. He logged into his account excitedly and was disappointed to see that his account registered only a big fat zero.
Basically, PayPal accidentally made it look like the guys' account had an absurd amount of money for a moment or so.

What is exactly going through her head? Is it, "Youngsters nowadays have no respect for their elders!" or "At my age, that person up there will call me home anytime, so what difference does it make if it is today?"

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.

Either way, it would had taken more guts than many, old or young, have.

Despite the fact that it is an SS uniform, she does look kinda cute. It's just that whole "person in uniform" thing, the fact that it's an SS uniform gives the whole thing some sort of cognitive dissonance. Hugo Boss did make some impressive uniforms for the Nazi's, and I feel like i need a shower for saying that.

Well for everything they did, the Nazi Party had style and knew how to show off to the camera.

Eh. When you think about it, which would they prefer? To be treated as bogeymen whose very appearance inspires terror, or as jokes? So I'm all for doing the latter. Yay for spite.

I for one wholeheartedly recommend this kind of treatment. There is no worse way to treat the memory of something other than mocking it. This is evil I approve of.

Prelate's 'gay romance' with Swiss guard shocks Vatican

Quote:
The Vatican's "gay lobby" was back in the headlines on Friday after the alleged exposure of a homosexual prelate appointed by Pope Francis to a key position at the Vatican bank.

The Italian weekly L'Espresso said prelate Battista Ricca had gay relationships during his time at the Vatican embassy of Montevideo in Uruguay as well as an affair with a Swiss guard which ultimately saw him sent back to Rome in disgrace.

Vatican expert for L'Espresso Sandro Magister said Ricca provided lodgings and a pay check for captain Patrick Haari in 1999 and was once left badly beaten after trawling notorious gay hangouts before his behaviour saw him transferred out of Montevideo in 2000.

He also allegedly got stuck in an elevator with a young gigolo he had invited to the embassy for the night, and had to be rescued.

An internal bid to protect him and cover up the scandal meant Francis apparently had no idea about Ricca's past before he appointed him as his personal representative at the scandal-hit bank this year.

Ricca went on from Montevideo to hold several prestigious positions in Rome, including the director of the Santa Martha residence where the pope lives.

"This allowed him to weave an intricate network of relationships with the highest levels of the Catholic hierarchy all over the world," relationships which would help bury past allegations against him, Magister said.

He said the wiping of Ricca's records was an example of a "gay lobby" at work in the Vatican.

Vatican spokesman Frederico Lombardi brushed off the story as "not credible" but the magazine insisted the allegations were confirmed by primary sources. It said "numerous bishops, priests, religious and laity" in Uruguay had testified against Ricca.

Religious watchers said the leaks about Ricca's past may be an internal attempt to block the prelate from carrying out reforms.

In June, Francis admitted the existence of a "gay lobby" inside the Vatican's secretive administration, the Roman Curia.

"In the Curia, there are truly some saints, but there is also a current of corruption... There is talk of a 'gay lobby' and it's true, it exists," he was quoted as having said during an audience with CLAR (the Latin American and Caribbean Confederation of Religious Men and Women).

The admission followed Italian media reports in February which claimed that a secret report by cardinals investigating leaks from within the Vatican included allegations of corruption and blackmail attempts against gay clergymen, and on the other hand, favouritism based on gay relationships.

If the allegations are proven to be true, it would be a blow to Francis's attempts to clean up the scandal-hit Vatican.
