    it's a small world , Disney knew it in 1964 and we all realize it in 2011.
    -The city of Bangkok is flooded and factories all over the world run out of spare parts.
    -A first minister of a small country (Greece) is able to shake the financial markets worldwide.
    -One day we are in London and the next day in Hong Kong or even the same day in Los Angeles.
    -CNN,BBC World, Al Jazeera, have news 24/7 within seconds where ever it happen.
    -We all eat imported food from Brazil up to New Zealand.
    -And trough the internet we are connected with the world within fractions of seconds.
    Did I miss something, or do I get too slow nowadays?

    My only concern Firefly is where will it all end ?
    I am beginning to believe it's better to switch off TV, Internet, Radio, stop reading paper's and the World would seem a better place! :smile: Either that or immigrate to the PI :D

    That's just great. But I don't miss that speedy information so much I figured out since I live here in this 'slow' country.
    It hurts me however when the ATM's are again 'out of order' or I have to wait some minutes for the girl at the cashier to check the amount of the 3 items I just bought. :mad:
    For the rest (mainly :smile:) I'm OK with the slower speed and no newspaper and hardly watching the small world around me.
    It feels great !
