UV tatoos are not completely invisible. Do a google search.

"Dreams are symbolic..." This is just a quote from Carl Jung's book. An opinion, not a fact.

"The 100 richest people earned enough to end poverty 4 times [para]" This is true for one year , if the money were magically distributed. Distribution is not free. Also this doesn't involve creating enough industry for stable incomes for said impoverished people.

"parrots become sexually attracted... the reason they want to learn to speak is because they want to talk to you.[para]" Again, this is an opinion. Not a fact.

Stop posting this **** as facts.
Ass.

The global poverty one also completely ignores the fact that current measurements of poverty are extremely flawed and don't accurately represent poverty in the slightest.

You could give poor people money but if they don't have access to roads, food, clothing, shelter. Pic related: These people are land-owning US citizens along the US-Mexico border. They are counted in current census data because of how difficult it is to measure people who have no infrastructure. Search Colonias for more info.

Look at the definition of "opinion". They may not be true, so they aren't fact, but they are not opinions, just falsehoods. But yeah, they are mostly false.

True, although because of it we have less money all other months of the year.
#270 to #213 - cplkoeksuster (04/28/2014) [-]
What is your income tax in a percentage? Here it's like 40% + 14% VAT on everything.
#276 to #270 - gerfox (04/28/2014) [-]
The income tax depends on how much you earn. It ranges from about 25% for those who earn little, to a maximum of 50% for those who earn over 950k NOK (that's about 160k dollars or 150k euro) - and the VAT is at a flat 25% for everything (I think).

The idea behind the taxes is so that everyone can more easily attain a higher living standard, because those who earn enough to get by anyway will be taxed the highest. Although it sucks if you're a person with that high income.
#277 to #276 - cplkoeksuster (04/28/2014) [-]
Yeah we have a progressive tax system too. Ironic thing is that we have similar tax systems but not nearly the same average standard of living. I guess that just shows how mismanaged our taxes are, that being the 60k out of 52 million of us that actually pay taxes. South Africa sucks.
#282 to #277 - gerfox (04/29/2014) [-]
Africa is complicated. The standard of living among a lot of the white (and black) upper class in South Africa is comparable, if not better, than most European countries. South Africa used to be the country in the world where you had the biggest difference between poor and rich. Norway used to be a very poor country, with very few rich people - and most of the population were farmers. In that way we started from different points. The oil enriched our economy(through the state), and still is a booster for it - making it possible for us to invest in more work, better wages and competence - so that everyone progressively had it better.

In South Africa on the other hand, the riches were already distributed from the colonial era, and the Boer republics to the white minority - and thus the major part of the population didn't partake in the boost and increased living standards that came from your natural resources.

I think the problems you face in South Africa are more a historical issue than a contemporary economic issue (although this is just my opinion from what I've read about it). Let's hope the future administrations can fix it, although, from what I've heard from a lot of South Africans, they think it won't - and that the country will continue to be ****** up - and it will be harder for white people to live there (and those who have earlier been very privileged have the key - they have competence and knowledge from a good education. That's the key to fixing it all).

Personally I considered strongly taking a semester of my college education in South Africa, I think it's an interesting country - and I'm fascinated by it
#286 to #282 - cplkoeksuster (04/29/2014) [-]
Cape Town's a nice place and generally what you've outlined above is true, the only thing is that the mindset of the population and government is abhorrent.
A good deal of the population feels entitled to free **** because apartheid, even though they were never directly effected and don't want to get a job because they think the state's gotta take care of them.

They stage protests about wages when nobody can afford to increase them without laying off workers, then sometimes they go and burn their places of work and expect a job to come back to on Monday (check out the wine farm workers). We have some of the strictest and over-powered labour laws in the world, which need to be nerfed a bit if we're going to compete on the global market. We have had and still have a degree of xenophobia with dudes getting set on fire for being foreigners and having the gall to have a work ethic and so get jobs. This whole ******** mindset of entitlement needs to change.

Don't even get em started on the government. They use apartheid policies to try and fix the wrongs of apartheid (check out color quotas for national sport teams), are blatantly corrupt (Nkandla) and see politics as a good way to make influential connections to save their ass when they get caught with their hands in the cookie jar. The only way forward for the country is improvement of basic education across the board, which is a task the government doesn't bother trying to take on. They lower the pass mark (30% FTW) and keep changing curricula in the hope that the stats look better at year's end. You may have heard of the **** quality of teachers here (drunk/ high on the job, have no qualifications, don't show up) and that's mainly because they get paid peanuts and have working conditions similar to that of a policeman. School stabbings and gang violence are common.

I agree; education is the answer but nobody's doing a thing about it, especially the government. Come here for the tourism, we're pretty good at that
#287 to #286 - gerfox (04/29/2014) [-]
Sounds terrible, and I've heard the same things you say from other South Africans as well. The color quotas for national sport teams thingy is just ridiculous. Although I get that they wish to incorporate black people into for instance the Springboks etc. to make it more attractive for all audiences, I don't think it's the way to do it. You gotta change the mindset instead.

I think it's sad that a lot of people feel entitled to a lot of things just because of Apartheid. Of course, it wasn't right how the blacks were treated - but at least you had order and you were competitive.

I think the key, at least politically, could be to disband ANC. They have a massive amount of the popular support, and I think this weakens the democratic process. Politicians in that party doesn't have to push through anything because they KNOW they will be reelected - and their actions have no or few consequences.

Also, people might engage more into what the different parties stand for if you don't have that giant.

I've read something about the wish to form territories with white rule (since few or no towns have white leadership). Wasn't a politician killed in his home with machetes last year because of it or something?
#288 to #287 - cplkoeksuster (04/29/2014) [-]
That was a white supremacist, yeah. Eugene Terreblanche, neo-nazi kinda guy. If you're gonna go and segregate rule by color then the Western Cape has a 'white leadership' in the DA. But talk of race helps nobody. I agree that the ANC needs to get the **** out of the driver's seat, if anything to show them that they actually need to follow up on pre-election smack talking about improving infrastructure and education. How do you know so much about South African politics anyway?
#289 to #288 - gerfox (04/29/2014) [-]
I think South Africa is fascinating - and I've read quite a bit about it on the internet I also study political science, and the ANC and South Africa is used as an example in our books to describe a one-party state with low electoral volatility (or something, I don't fully remember - 'twas two semesters ago).

I know there was some improvements on the infrastructure because of the world cup, but I guess that's probably limited to the major cities, and not the countryside.

My personal opinion, as a neutral bystander, is that the South African case is special - often, in most other countries, the minorities cry out for attention, and get more power than they should have according to their importance and competence level.
The problem in South Africa is that it is to a big extent the white minority who have better education, and then more competence - they also run the economy. If the majority rule doesn't acknowledge them, and let them partake in decisions etcetera it's going to get ****** up.

I've also read that a lot of white people has moved out of South Africa after the fall of Apartheid, among other things because they didn't feel safe. As far as I can remember it has also hurt the economy greatly, and a lot of big South African companies also flag out because of the labor laws you mentioned earlier, and the ever-increasing wages without any increase in productivity. Wasn't there some silly extreme rule about colored representation in corporations as well?

I'm certain though, that when the government gets it's **** together it'll improve quickly. I googled this Nkandla scandal you mentioned now though, but I didn't fully grasp it... Did the President use public funds to improve the comfort of his home, and now they are using their majority in parliament to strike down investigations on the matter?
#290 to #289 - cplkoeksuster (04/29/2014) [-]
The policy you're referring to is BEE, or black economic empowerment, which is a bunch of tax rebates and **** for black people who own companies. As for Nkandla, our dear president used tax money to build himself a 200-odd million rand compound and yes, is trying to squash investigations into it. It's not that there's discrimination of the white minority, it's that the government doesn't do anything it's supposed to do. Your government actually is efficient and doesn't grossly misuse public funds, hence your country works. Mine doesn't. Your president doesn't build himself a swimming pool then pretends it's a water reservoir for fighting fires.
#291 to #290 - gerfox (04/29/2014) [-]
Yeah, that policy should go. Makes the corporations less effective since people are promoted just because of the color of their skin.

I hope for chrissake that what Zuma was building on was at least the Presidential palace (?) which tends to be luxurious in a lot of countries, and not a private home. In that case it would go from a misuse of public funds, to extremely ****** up. The fact that he's still in office surprises me a bit. I don't know about everything he has done through the years, but I'm aware of his statement a couple of years back that aids wasn't a problem just as long as you showered after having intercourse. Makes him look kind of silly and ignorant...
#292 to #291 - cplkoeksuster (04/29/2014) [-]
He did say that. He was also accused of rape and went to court for it. That compound is his personal family compound for he and his 7-8 wives to live in. I lost track of how many wives he has, sorry.
#293 to #292 - gerfox (04/30/2014) [-]
That's simply just sad. Now I'll hope they kick his ass out of office, however - what kind of corrupt clown will take over? Will it be better or worse?
