    rated S for stupid!

    Scotland is like...

    i always thought Scotland was a _post-industrial_ wasteland, not a post-apocalyptic one; difference being one is act-of-man (or slightly evolved ape, if you like, and therefore it is grimy, tawdry and/or pathetic), the other is act-of-god-or-atomic-physics (and thus has a certain catastrophic fallen grandeur, which only natural forces can produce, and which is absent in industrial leftovers).

    somewhat like Detroit, in Michigan, or any other offshored/outsourced manufacturing area in the USA. other countries export products, consultants or raw materials; we export jobs (and don't reeducate people to make them employable afterwards).
