Your previous statements did not address the finance ministers actions, so I'm going to assume you have no statement on that topic. Seems I had wasted a lot of our time trying to actually have a debate about something interesting. I'll take this as a lesson learned. Enjoy doing that shit.

You seem to be mostly emphasizing me being a PENIS, a DICK and BUTT HURT. If you are not aware, emphasis is better applied through bold and italic text. All caps is a bit more like shouting. This is doubly so when you use the all caps to call someone names. It really does weaken your argument.

To the topic at hand:
Everything you said about the Greek economy was about their culture. The only thing you said about the finance minister is that he was a part of that culture. While that's true, it did not address what he did or failed to do, which is what I asked.

Perhaps not doing, but they say they can do it and ask you to agree to it. That's pretty bad. I also wouldn't agree to a contract that says a company can do X but trust us we won't. That's why I don't buy games on Steam "We can delete your account for any reason whenever we like" are bad terms of sale, in my book.

With your name calling and all caps, you seem to care very much. As I had pointed out before, just because he was the finance minister at the time does not mean it was caused by him. In fact, given how their government is structured, it's unclear how he could have prevented the crisis. Can you name one thing he had the power to do that would have prevented it?

uh-huh...... i was only stating it for the obvious joy of the irony. I am well aware of the fact thast it's far more complex however why should i let that get in the way of a bit of ironic shits and giggles....?

Because it isn't actually ironic? If he was powerless to prevent the crisis, then him speaking up about his experience in office is hardly irony (since he didn't cause the crisis).

What makes an hour of one man's lifetime more valuable than an hour of another man's?

What an odd question. It seems you're implying that all hours of all lives should be valued equally.

That's not what that question implies at all. That question asks, quite plainly, what is it that we as a society value such that we as a society value one man's hour more than another. Obviously we don't value everyone's time the same, but we do value some things more than others. It appears that *what* those things are is the crux of the matter, and what the question was asking.

Not very, is the answer. I bought a movie from Amazon. I wanted to watch it on my family vacation to Canada. I couldn't, because it was region locked. They were nice enough to refund me that purchase and every Amazon Video purchase I had ever made, though. These days, I no longer buy media. That whole industry has soured me on "owning" media. I only rent because at least then I get what I paid for.
