You also forgot to mention that German bread can double as building material.

If you can do that by american construction codes, theres little wonder you Guys need to evacuate whole states because of a caugh of a wind and consider chinese construction codes as somewhat decent.

Oh, wait, you guys DO whole state evacuations for stuff that merely keeps the shutters rattling elsewhere.

I remember the last tornado/hurricane I experienced in "hard bread country" as you put it.
What a shoking sight!:
Litter dispersed on neat bavarian streets, and some garden furniture lying around completely disorderly!

I don't recall a whole state being evacuated for anything. Not really possible in the first place.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

You aren't showing a dollar's worth of food in any of these pictures.
A little consistency would be  ...

I think the OP has given a very good and graphic display of the various food lines and costings - albeit some of the content in the newspaper underlay is a bit disturbing ....

The "poverty line" is relevant to the country where it is applied and the overall GDP to population ratio with the added component of the equation being earnings per head of capita directly applied with the "slice of reality" that many times the massive earnings of the elite and overpaid create a false picture of earnings for the lower paid and those with no income at all.

The statement by another forumite points to the homeless forced to survive on picking from the garbage dumps and bins - yet we never see those people entered into the equation when governments set a "poverty line".

Man created god before god created man and the world has been in turmoil ever since. Dots freak some people out - so they join them with lines that aren't really there.

How many tornadoes of F3 or larger have you had in Europe lately?
How many Hurricanes of Cat 3 or greater have you had in Europe lately?
How many earth quakes of 6.0 or greater have you had in Europe lately?
