A friend of mine, married to a European, said that I should have been born in Europe, not the US, due to my hatred of small talk.

Our national holiday consists of drinking and playing with explosives at nighttime. You do the math.

It’s generally a very cheerful level of suicidality though! Would be awful to bring the mood down by making a suicide all somber or some shit.

It’s more of a “I just lost my starboard engine. Get set up for your attack run.”

“Good enough” is “My head is barely above water and I’m wondering if it’s worth the effort”

A lot of reasons, but deeply rooted incompetence and graft in the government is a big one. A culture of tax evasion, lack of enforcement of laws on the private sector, and a lack of investment in improving industrial practices (leading to low productivity per hour worked compared to countries that DO keep up-to-date) also contribute.

I think it’s more that the tone of ‘imagine getting’ in this context comes off as a little… eager.

It’s like Greece doesn’t understand what being part of a (mostly) united labor market with the EU means.

You have to offer better standards, not worse, to retain labor
