    Sorry for the goof.

    Yes -- this week. But in the Karpathy, quite a lot is Transylvania, historical Hungarian territory (Hungary was really bad at choosing sides in WW1 and WW2). Can't find Fagrash myself, but as previous posts have indicated, my Balkan geography is not what it might be.

    AS you have USA form capitalism, European form of capitalism, Scandinavian form of capitalism, there was also USSR form of communism, Cuban form of communism, etc... and (former) Yugoslavian communism.

    My preferences would be (by informations and experiences I have): Scandinavian capitalism, European capitalism (or vice versa), Yugoslavian communism. Rest I don't like at all. USSR and Cuban communism because of oppression and dictatorship, USA capitalism because of economy liberalism, values and hypocrism.

    And having in mind how often Balkan political geography is changed, we who live here don't get it completely too

    Did you care about the news of what happened to the world's largest nuclear power plant Kriwa-Kashiwazaki in Japan after the big earthquake back in July? That could've been the worst nuclear disaster in history.

    This is not only because of the deficits found in the technological aspect, but the actual mis-handling of that monster and the thing that the government keeps poundering with the word "safety" everyday also. It's like cult.

    Now Japan as one of the most advance nations is like this over the control of this death-threatening device, and you said it it's light years ahead of China. Then I really wonder what is going on in China's nuclear energy scene. :o

    Yes, I did hear about it (I assume 'care' was a mistype for 'hear' -- anyone who heard about it would surely care).

    Well, I did say politically light years ahead. But I strongly suspect that nuclear power in China is pretty primitive as well. Building nuclear reactors in earthquake zones is always a bit interesting, though: I used to live about 30 miles from one in California.
