Did anyone else see the word of the day on the colbert report tonight? For those that didn't, The Word was 'join the European union' (not a word really) colbert says that he's gotta get used to the stronger beers in Europe, make sure your watching the words on the screen at the moment.

heres the vid:

The irony of it is the US, as great a country as it is, couldn't even qualify to be an EU member because we have too much debt and unemployment...

Really? But your GDP is pretty good. Doesn't that count for anything?

Thats not neccessarily a bad thing- Taxes are lower than most EU states and having to Employ people no matter how useless they are is not the way to keep #s looking good.

...and because you have the death penalty. That's a bit of a no-no for the EU.

For the EU politicians, that is. Quite a few reports show that European citizens wouldn't mind having it in their society.

I'm sure some people would like to have it. I believe most people are glad we don't have it. There's certainly no clamour to start executing people, unless you count the debate on euthanasia, which is rather different.

Anyway, this thread was about beer and Stephen Colbert. So to avoid derailing it into another stinky political thread, I propose that both killing people and not killing people is AWESOME, and both Europe and North America are AWESOME, and GDPs and taxes are AWESOME. Or lame. Whichever.

I'll tell you where is rubbish. Bhutan. Total f'ing sh'thole.

According to the statics I can find the public debt (as a percentage of GDP) and unemployment rate are both below the EU average.
Maybe I missed something?

How is it possible that Evan's BMC law has not activated here yet? (BMC=urine)
