That is the depressing truth. I once went to Tenerife to walk/climb Mount Teide. It was much cheaper to book a package then to try for direct flights so it was a week in Playa and a daily drive up into the crater. Bally good fun, until we got to the bar in the evening. I intentionally ate and drank local, well Spanish, products. None of the gastly imported British Muck!
Really? English sausages are the best in the world, so is its black pudding. Have to hand it so Spain on the bacon and eggs front though. And coffee, hot chocolate, pastries, tapas, wine, sherry, in fact pretty much everything else that isnt fish and chips and pies and pasties.
Just the first of those percentages would be enough to drive all the natives away ... assuming there were any left who not been enslaved, or slaughtered.
«There is a spectrum, from "clearly desirable behaviour," to "possibly dodgy behavior that still makes some sense," to "clearly undesirable behavior." We try to make the latter into warnings or, better, errors. But stuff that is in the middle category you don’t want to restrict unless there is a clear way to work around it.» Eric Lippert, May 14, 2008
Does it involve scooping out half your brain and filling the empty space with a concentrated testosterone solution?
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

I was amazed by its features of edge-detection (which, it did amazingly!) and animation to the images (waves, ripples etc). GIMP is no wonder the best software to use for image manipulation on Linux environments. On Windows, Adobe may have some cards up their sleeves — but I don't use them, I don't have enough money to put to waste.
