Look for a (some more?) "Lonely Greek girls looking for a husband in (another land?) America" site(s)

Asians and Russians have pretty much run their courses

Hmm, maybe my wife would let me have an imported Greek mistress if she is young and employable....especially if I told her that I would then stop bothering her for uh, well you know, “attention”.

Heh. You have a point there.

Yeah, Asian and Russian ladies are yesterday’s news.

It’s going to be interesting to see how this all pans out. I think there’s an pretty fair outside chance that Greece could slide into civil war.

Here’s my thesis: Let’s say that Mr. Tspiras of the SYRIZA party ends up in charge; he goes to the EU and say he wants to re-negotiate the terms. The EU in turn tells him to get bent, and bids Greece “adieu” from the Eurozone (who knows; maybe even the EU entirely). Bear in mind that Mr. Tspiras’ entire political strategy rests on the broadly held Greek view that they can play chicken with (or perhaps blackmail is a better word) the EU/IMF and get what they want.

When Mr. Tspiras comes home after getting his tuckus handed to him, and the only thing he has to show for his efforts is a now-utterly bankrupt and destitute country, at that point the Greek electorate will suddenly realize he was full of crap and they swallowed it. At that moment of epiphany, I’m almost willing to bet you’re going to see “civil disturbances” in Greece the like of which haven’t been seen since the Peloponnesian War.

I think at that point, Greece will explode (or implode, depending on your point of view).
