    So, Finland is going to apply for NATO membership. I would bet Sweden to follow soon. So for now, what has Putin accomplished:
    1. De-demilitarisation of Germany
    2. Increased military spending by...

    Wow! I have no clue what damage a 7Kg bike can do to a car that it collides with at 90Km/h but it'd be a scare for me for sure.

    So Philips. Had a bit of bad news regarding ventilators on recall. I think (or *speculate*) that markets tend to overreact and so I went in for a bit. Goal is to, over time, make 100 shares worth in...

    Ouch, that was a rather silly mistake I made, yes, Slovakia.

    On the other hand, Russia doesn't have the military they had in late WWII and during cold war either. It may take a long time but I...
