Re: Euro to peseta exchange rate ??

Jool, I don’t hear or see anything in your links which refer to or define a “grade 2 euro”, nor Spain reverting to a Peseta at any rate at all. (If you understood the rate was fixed “ad infinitum” at 166.386 then you mis-understood the transition to the Euro to begin with) So, a discussion about 2 i...

Re: ?Definition of a Third World Country?

Sarcasm? Beni, Beni, Beni.
Merely bringing your attention to an error in your ways.
Thought you might want to know.
As for the sarcasm, suggest you look up the word.
As for getting out more -
you’re the one with the 2000 posts.

Re: ?Definition of a Third World Country?

Most people use terms, phrases & words with little or no understanding of what they actually mean, where they originally came from or even what they refer to.

Re: Members who have never posted

Most of the ‘members’ listed here, or on many other forums are not members at all - some are robotic, some are accumulators, and some like to get automatic birthday greetings that make people believe someone cares. As for the rest, from the looks of things, I’d say you only have about 29 members any...
