    Cool, VG. I like this kind of attitude. Really cool!

    Guess, which country is poorest here? :cry:

    According to Leopard's Dictionary:

    Flamer : A guy who has miserable real life, maybe people always make fun of him/her in his/her real life. So, all he/she can do is flaming people in another world called internet just to take a vengeance. Sad....

    darklord_avalon i think you dont get our poor country problem...

    your so hard-to-get 10 dollars means converting in my country coin (peso) about 100,#### pesos.

    that means 1 dollar is 10,#### pesos, so to afford to pay in dollar, we have to work (at least here in mexico) 10 times more, considering we gain the same value in numbers...

    ...and we dont get paid by school

    @Daelin i thought Romania, as an european country should have the euro which is a strong coin. am i wrong? (i know not all of europe use it...)

    Don't get mer wrong, people, I didnt add the financial thing to pressure you folks into giving, I was just making a statement about people abusing this site while contributing nothing to it. A parasite, so to speak. And that Darky keeps this site up out of his own generosity. If you can't afford it, then needless to sat we are not expecting you to pay anything. I was in all you shoes at one point, too. This is NOT call for donations. Sorry if people took it that way. (although I;m sure darky would be happy to those who still did donate :wink: )

    As for the paid school thing, keep in mind that many countries in Europe have socialist economies, which do that sort of thing. You will notice the more capitalist a country is, the less of that sort of thing you will see. I'm not a particular fan of socialism. I'm sure the logic of it all is that government financial assistance for schooling is to releive the pressures off of low income families...but it's inharently contradictory because the taxes families pay are put where? Into government assistance...so basically you are paying for your neigbor's education and they are paying for yours. Oh well, I don't know the whole story behind each country and their policies so I won't be making assumptions.

    DD_Draco... I was suggesting a transfer from one of the parents' accounts. But I never claimed that anyone should give anything unless he or she can afford it and trully wants. And as for "getting paid in school" it is more complicated. Each child gets a sum of money every month (as I was saying, about 7$, in our money (lion)). EVERYBODY who hasn't finished highschool (of course if he or she is following one) yet receives this monthly pay.

    Nantuko_Husk... at us it doesn't depend on the grades (unfortunately...) :(

    darklord_avalon, I said that 10$ is change because I heard more than one guy saying it and so, I was sure that it is like this in USA. Sorry if I offended you.

    Leopard... Then I'm a flamer. Because I have my moments of anger too ya know especially because of my sucky life. But thank god I then try to keep myself far from the site. :lol: Heh, just joking for the last part. But yeah, people make a lot of fun of me in my real life (unfortunately).

    Raiju... our money are called lions (leu (sg), lei (pl)). We are not in the Europenian Union yet. Only the countries in EU use euro.

    Veggie... I was about to mention the same thing. I just opened this discussion because I felt like, and I didn't want it to sound as if "people should donate even if they want to or don't, or even if they can afford it or not". It should sound more like "Donations of people who can afford it and want to do it are appreciated".

    Cheers everybody!

    We, for example, still use PLN... :roll: We aren't the richest land out here... But it is not that bad as with us ;) Because I can't only say "how poor I am", but do something with it.

    PS I also have money from school. About 27$. Every half of school year :p

    Ok, I can't say I'm poor either, but I don't think my parents would give me money for such a thing anyway. They find this site a waste of time. And OMG, you get 27$ per year? That's indeed not much.

    VG, I'm very impressed at how well you handled this, I'll be honest, I really wouldn't have taken it as easily as you have.

    And now to continue the money discussion...

    Well, here in Canada (Prince Edward Island to be exact, see if you can find it on a world map... YES, that little speck :p ) money isn't very hard to come by for me, even though I don't get very much, I usually increase it by gambling :) I would help the site if I could, but I really don't think my parents would of approve of it. Sorry darky :/

    so no worry bout offending me.
    the only way you could offend my is by bashing USA or, just flaming models.

    Daelin, yea well i want to but my folks probably wouldn't help me to. If you get paid from tax money the only way that us in australia can get that is if we are unemployed and have to sign-up with the government to get it (just so ppl know im not sure if its used outside of australia its called the "Dole").

    And you say people make a lot of you, alot of people make fun of me but i just throw it back at them and they shut up.

    VG, dont know about me but the financial bit i had no idea, it was just the fact knowing that he was a student that got me.

    You are not, since you don't flame on internet just to take a vengeance.

    Really, i don't get it, why some people like to flame someone on the internet? Is it making him happy?

    Heck, if really a badass, i would flame people right in front of his face, yeah just to get cocky on him and just for fun. But, through internet? Are those flamer really feel happy by just write foul words? Really, i don't get the fun when i do it just through 'cables'.

    My suggestion, if you really wanna be a badass, don't go halfway. Go come out your house, make fun some geeks. Nah, you'll feel happy now, not just flaming people on the internet while you hiding behind your computer.

    I found that humorous with merit. Society is gonna go to waste in this theory, with certain people...

    The faulty gene for mental deficiencies at birth like Down's Syndrome, with all the carcinogenic crap we make will eventually override the default genes for human intelligence. We will all be a species of retards! =P

    Anyway, you get what you get. Good job, VG

    Whatever

    Well, that hippo guy's been slaughtered 8 times already? Oh happy day :p
    Anyway, here in Norway we get cash if we keep going from school to high school, more or less as a loan, but anyway, I got a good life if you exclude all those retards trying to piss me off 24/7 (my phone's at teachers room after someone called it in middle of class (yes, I know who, I just haven't beaten him senseless, yet)), I'm not planning to find out how much it's in dollars, but in OUR value it's 1000 err... crowns? What to call it on english? Anyway, that's from my parents, MONTHLY! :p
    Right onto my bank account, I can't donate because my mother always looks through this lil piece of paper which tells where money's been spent on, and she'd make the computer explode if she saw that I'd spent money on a site
