ATHENS, GREECE - MARCH 24: A Greek woman sits in a fashionable cafe on March 24, 2010 in Athens, Greece. Fellow European nations negotiated on March 24 over what role the International Monetary Fund could play in European Union efforts to alleviate Greece's debt crisis. Greece's debt and economic woes have prompted forced austerity measures as a condition of staying in the European Union, and EU-heavyweight Germany has opposed a bailout of the fragile, debt-ridden Greek economy.

Me geeking out: I am really interested to see how this plays out for the EU. Obviously the European Parliament couldn't have foreseen both such a horrible economic crisis, and how it would have effected its member-states, but it could mean super big trouble for the lesser affected member-states, because those austerity measures are hurting some already seriously weakened economies.

It's the cutting edge of politics in a very extraordinarily boring way! (Thank you, Mr. Izzard)
