    Good luck with that Greece. My guess would be they are trying to position themselves to have their current debt load forgiven as part of WWII reparations.

    Greece can get their check from Germany once we get our checks from England, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, Russia, etc. etc.

    If anyone's going to get WWII reparations from Germany, we should certainly come before Greece!

    Once you get your check, you can just endorse it back over to us for what you guys owe.

    You mean the loan you kindly made over to us (with sky-high interest rates) towards the end of the second world war? A loan that amounted to double the original amount by the time we finally managed to clear it in 2006?

    Other than that, I can't see how we "owe" you anything...Quite the reverse...We want damages for your mangling of the Queen's, for starters!

    much like in accounting, payments should be made on a first in first out basis. You guys were the last to join so you'll be last to get paid.

    If it wasn't for us, the US and Canada would be the only ones speaking English, Queen's or not, meine Königin.

    Yeah, but the US and Russia were the only ones entering the war that MATTERED. Sorry Canada, though it was nice to have our brothers from the north there with us!






    This is all in jest...WWII was Britain's finest hour, it gave everything it had and more.

    US GAAP, unlike IFRS, allows LIFO. And we're the most important with the biggest military, so yeah, we get paid first, if you don't like it...too bad.

    Yep.
    My mother has a English friend who occasionally talks to my mother about what it was like to live in England during that terrible war. Those English people fought like pit bulls, scrambled, sacrificed. Even little ol' Queen Elizabeth II put on the overalls and signed up for mechanics training.....and after the war saved up ration coupons for material for her wedding dress

    but then again she married that Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg idiot
    at least the current generation is marrying commoners and stopping the European Royal in-breading ...those royals have family trees that rival hillbillie's family trees for their rather circular shape
