    Belly button defluffer made of a gold shaft studded with diamonds, with feathers from the down of an Abbott's Booby.

    Arshes, I don't even.. what the actual fuck?! Worst comes to worst I'd rather spend 4 grand on prostitutes.

    I'd buy two million plastic balls (you know the ones kids swim in) and fill my entire house with them. Not really funny but genuinely fun!
    Blog - Check it out. It's fun.

    Sketchbook - I should really update more often.

    Portfolio - The most fun of them all.

    A giant penis-shaped tower standing on the border of Canada and the US, which would raise on hydraulics, wave suggestively in the wind and occasionally release clouds of doves. That is what I would spend money on.

    That and a scale replica of Nero's Golden House, complete with porphyry bathtub, which would house my collection of pet rabbits.

    All very funny and creative suggestions, but alas, money wasting ministries don't do even that. Apart from the usual suspects of corruption and larceny, they probably spent all the money on reports about how reports about the level of report writing were ignored despite prior reports about meetings about how reports should be written after a report in a newspaper reported that reports about meetings about reports were written in an un-report-like style and resembled reports about non-reports rather than straightforward reports. Oh, and it was all incorrectly filed, in folders of the wrong colour and size.

    I would buy engineers so they can invent rapid filing color changing, depending on what reports are inside and fluctuating on the right shelve making sure no one ever sees it again.

    If you're going to strike against corruption, you need to insulate yourself from it first. You should consider doing this kind of thing anonymously. There is no use painting a bright red bull’s eye on your butt, when you can achieve the same effect safely from the shadows.

    I bring it up every time there's a federal election in case people want to write in and make me Prime Minister. Under my rule, Canada would be known for its innovative art projects and national sniper program. Because if you're going to offend a lot of people with penis towers you want them to think twice about attacking you.

    Vineris, you wouldn't happen to be running for the Rhinoceros Party, would you?

    Well, the director of my school showed me a receipt that got leaked to the press that has written on it, 19 handmade wooden boxes as "gifts" at a cost of over €2,000, which is enough to buy a library of books for our students. These reciepts just say "from the ministry of education". They don't mention who placed the order, or who the gift recipients are. He showed me a couple other reciepts where another nameless person recieved about 3 months salary for a one-day educational presentation that never actually happened. So, a fair amount of money is just being used in political back scratching and bribes, and we need real transparency. When I tried to find out what was going on, I couldn't find any information or statistics from the ministry on how they spend money, only on how much they recieve from the state and the EU every year. So I've decided to try and start a little internet campaign to raise awareness.
    Sounds pretty much like South Africa.

    EDIT: Oh, and just to clarify, teachers have been striking this year for higher salaries and increased spending on education. I support it because two things that most Slovak schools still don't have are: a library with a librarian, a school nurse.
    Sounds pretty much like South Africa. :-)

    Except of course that, when they strike here, they don't just strike. They also burn down what little infrastructure we do have. So they might strike out of protest against poorly equipped libraries and laboratories, and by the end of the strike, there will be no libraries or laboratories of any kind left.

    I guess I shouldn't point fingers; I am a school teacher myself. But I work for a private school, at half the salary of a teacher in a government school, and I can't strike without permanently losing my job. :-)

    Well, I can see why it would be highly useful for the education ministry to provide all teachers with real dolls. Sexual assault of pupils by teachers is not unheard of here, so no doubt providing all teaching staff with real dolls would be for the safety of the kids.
