Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Our continent has had a rich history of cultures and languages, perhaps the most diverse in human history!
Not to belittle the great diversity of language on the American continent, but sub-Saharan Africa and South East Asia, especially India, Indonesia and the Philippines, are significantly more diverse lingustically even than Bolivia (the most lingustically diverse country in the Americas).
given how war-torn their two countries are
You mean the Irish come from both Eurasia and Oceania?
You're unlikely to get robbed in a drug neighborhood, for example, because most people either don't have anything to steal, or have a weapon, or will fight to the death over their last $2.

I get that the overseas stores are not included in the sale to Sprint, because that would make absolutely no sense, but what I really want to know is what happens to them when Radio Shack goes bankrupt. In other words, I want to know if my local Radio Shack located inside a Borders store (I kid you not) will still be open.
The music corporations are entirely non-US companies.
Not quite. You still have Warner (the smallest of the big 3).
I'm not a lawyer, but I know some of you are.
Pro tip: Anyone claiming to be a lawyer on Slashdot, or indeed on the internet in general, is probably lying. Especially if it is while they are providing you with what appears to be legal advice.
