Better than some blogs...
The whole idea of a Human Development Index is a crock of sh*t. How can the UN say they have a formula that quanitifies quality of life in a way that allows them to compare countries? It's like the BCS applied on a global scale. Of course I have little respect for the UN, so maybe that's where my resentment is angst is coming from.

oh and you need to have more than one post if you want to get in the list of blogs i read.
