Topic: Federal Assembly declares that the dress is blue and black
Replies: 13

The State of Minoa has no idea behind how the dress colour debacle became a wildfire, but since many here are photography experts, it does highlight the importance of paying attention to colour temperature to avoid confusing the viewer.

I can see why they would make that a law: such an act for tricking people into seeing porn is similar to exposing private parts to people who do not want to see it, aka sexual indecency.

Would you like to argue democracy is better? ...yes? Syriza would not prefer to be remembered for wreaking havoc on people's savings, it seems. When Argentina defaulted in 2001, riots from the 1998–2002 great depression in that country brought down the Fernando de la Rua presidency. I am keeping a ...

So, what would you think, Charlotte Ryberg or Minoa? Do you really have any regret for inadvertantly causing this chain reaction that ultimately resulted in the demise of NSwiki? To respond to allegations about my involvement in either generations of NSwiki, I have never been given sysop, admin or ...

I think it is too early to judge Syriza/ANEL given that they've been in power for a month, although I understand the growing impatience of the Greeks due to the impact of the previous austerity regime. It is understandable to jump to conclusions, but the new government (probably the first government...

I thought this was quite an interesting, nuanced article adapted from a lecture Yanis Varoufakis (the Greek finance minister) gave. Two things: 1.) The neo-Nazis of Golden Dawn are nowhere close to taking over. 2.) Thatcher didn't intentionally engineer a recession. He needs to stop fearmongering. ...

Anything older than 70 years after the author's death, regardless of faith, is in public domain. There may be new editions, hundreds of years on (like Charles Dickens noels), but the copyright mostly applies to that particular edition (mostly the artwork or the prefaces and extra stuff).

Hi, I noticed a small inconsistency in the typefaces.

Therefore, should that be Helvetica Neue, followed by ...

I think that right/left differences have to be put aside for something this critical. I see SYRIZA/ANEL as Greece's most crucial chance to rethink the current system both nationally and internationally. Again, no words can explain the number of policies that need modernisation, and much of that is m...

Greece already had a Fascist regime twice; we don't need a third try. Syriza is not fascist and most Greek people don't support Golden Dawn. Austerity is what has fueled increased support for the fascist parties and so as long as Syriza fulfills their campaign promises you should see a decline in s...

On a related note, there is a plan for former (or soon to be reinstated) workers to storm the Radiomegaron building and reinstate ERT: SYRIZA is promising that ERT will return, but I think they're likely to put such a declaration in the Government Gazette first, like what ND did when they announced ...

I simply cannot say that change will happen overnight, but ND made many silly ideas, like closing ERT. If they were to solve the problem they should have been serious about sorting out corruption and being less intolerant towards minorities. There is no doubt that a present, Greece is in a serious ...

Austerity has failed. Greece needs to leave the Euro. It's the only option at this point. What effect do you presume that will have on the Greek economy. Austerity has failed, yes. But, in Greece's case, I feel that it was either austerity or accept default. And, if Greece leaves the euro, they're ...

I can't see how we have to hate certain cultures because of historical events: indeed such events have to be held to account, but in a constructive way instead of going by the flawed "all X are Y" assumption.
