    well it certainly was a lesson in bad grammar. You'd think that since this was an American graduate of Brown U. he would know how to write properly.

    8,156 billion debt seems a bit off, since the highest number i heard was 600 billion...

    oh well the US economic collapse, and subsequent death spasms hinted at in this film, won't affect Europe much its not like they have military bases and armed troops in there....

    I believe the "bad grammar" part is intentional.

    US debt is not 600 billion... its is much more than that.

    US trade deficit with China alone was 150 or so bil last year. Now take into account all the securities China and Japan buy, and you get a damn big number.

    Yeah, it was a deliberate piss-take of the worst kind of Chinese nationalists. That aspect was very well done and was fairly consistent throughout - so I was actually impressed in that respect.

    no it's not. If anything, it's aimed at alienating the audience (American) even more.

    If you think someone who can draw up national statistics is of the worst kind of nationalist, you must be smoking something good. Then again, I think you already are.

    Dude, I think you need to relax because you're seriously too stressed. Perhaps Americans have a different sense of humour, but if the "target" was the UK, we'd be rolling around on the floor in hysterics because it's just so ridiculous.

    "Don't get your underwear into a complicated knot!"

    There are "worse" kind of nationalists, but I was searching for an appropriate word. Perhaps "annoying" might be better.

    much much more.

    Call me sad, but one of the more funny things to do is visiting this page http://www.brillig.com/debt_clock/
    This provides a real time update of US national debt. It's kind of funny, because they would loose millions of dollars over the course of a 10 minute lunch meal.
