Cyprus? Really? The financial markets are losing their shit over whether or not a single tax bill is passed in Cyprus: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/03/19/us-cyprus-parliament-idUSBRE92G03I20130319

I think it was something like the 15th century since the last time the entire world stood up and took notice of something happening on the island. And probably the first time in its history that it has affected the entire world with such significance without the cause being the violent conquring of the island by one empire or another.

These certainly are strange times we are living in.
