    Default EU has new members

    Romania and Bulgaria. Dust off the welcomes, I'm already overfilled with these things. I went in the Revolution Plaza in Bucharest, to enter the New Year with champagne and many people. And also, the high ranking EU officials.

    I want to ask our european members, their opinion about the EU.
    For me, it doesn't look like something extremely "happy" to cheer about it. I mean, what is it actually? To me, just a more complex economic alliance. Nothing more.

    Just wanting to share some opinions on this.
    Ja mata, TosaInu. You will forever be remembered.

    Proud

    Been to:

    Swords Made of Letters - 1938. The war is looming in France - and Alexandre Reythier does not have much time left to protect his country. A novel set before the war.

    A Painted Shield of Honour - 1313. Templar Knights in France are in grave danger. Can they be saved?

    Morocco wasn't allowed into the EU because they weren't in Europe, I doubt they would allow Israel in.

    Yes, it was the Roman Empire. It's only called the Byzantine Empire by historians who don't like the fact that it was the succesor of Rome.

    I've heard it called the Eastern Roman Empire...

    As for the EU it is about money and the more people the larger consumer base the more economic currency you can wield as a group. From this evolves other things like political currency as having such a large consumer base will make other nations/economic entities salivate at the idea of entry into such a large market. Also as less money has to be spent on defending from each other more can be spent on socio-economic projects from manufacturing to football.
    Our genes maybe in the basement but it does not stop us chosing our point of view from the top.

    People have a proiblem calling it the Roman empire because Rome itself was in other hands by that time. The Byzantine Empire was as Roman as the current American empire is British. Actually, rather less so, since the Americans at least speak English, while the Byzantines spoke Greek.

    I think I'll write to my MP tomorrow, applying to become the new governor of the American colonies, citing the Byzantine-Roman link as a precedent.

    Oh come on. So if they speak Greek, they aren't the Roman Empire? Even though they spoke Latin, followed Roman customs and such? Really.

    Constantine, the founder of Constantinople, was Roman. He put the capital of the Roman Empire at Constantinople, in Greece. So, since the city was situated in Greece, the Greek language was learned so they could communicate.

    That's only because of our slow expansion. Turkey had huge territories while Greece was still gaining their independance.
