      From wiki
      Brunei is one of the richest and most wealthy states in the world. For the wealth of its inhabitants and the Sultan, the country is called "Islamic Disneyland." Due to its rich oil and gas reserves, Brunei is one of the first places in Asia in terms of living standards. GNP per capita in 2009 - 50,1 thousand dollars (9th place in the world). 40% of workers here are migrant workers from neighboring countries of East and Southeast Asia.

      from there ..
      The population is 395 thousand (as of July 2010).
      Annual growth - 1,73%.
      The average life expectancy is 74 years for men, 78 years for women.

      On the Internet, from our tourists notes ..
      Today, Brunei is one of the first places in Asia in terms of living standards and given the high salaries of doctors, engineers (about 5-6 thousand dollars a month), nurses and teachers (2-3 thousand), this is becoming clear.


      and so on.

        And you, dear, with brains, in harmony? Or, dear, have nothing to think about? It’s one thing to sit on an island through which an earthly schism happened, through which oil poured, and the local few, and not painfully educated Aborigines hurried to pull diamond headdresses (which they consider to be crowns !!!) onto their heads. So they have neighbors who can easily take away both crowns and wells. Let them arm themselves. Weapons, too, the neighbors will take away. The meaning of my post is - I found a little man denyuzhku, have the opportunity to put it in your pocket. Or, ask Big Uncle to intercede. And if your uncle soon has kirdyk (the uncle does not have the opportunity to report for 18 green triplets), then the well, and the crown will have to be given, in order to avoid a lot of interference on the CPSU member (I specially wrote this, the modders are swearing for truth. And the member will really be big - .ope Brunei will fly to the British flag!)

      Do you think helicopters are needed only by Russia? Open your eyes wide and look at the world. 50 years ago there was no state named Brunei, and today GDP per capita at PPP is $ 53100. Just compare their and our (former USSR's) living standards and understand what is what.

            So take a look at the map, I hope you know how to google it? And I hope the economic geography at school took place? And in the army of political studies? And there’s nothing to blow cheeks, since mom and dad didn’t give you a mind. Or at school smoked in the toilet instead of learning. Forgive me for being so rude to you, but before you blurt out something for all to see, think three hundred times that there are people who know you many times (I don’t relate to them).

              And I see you were not taught cultural communication. Hamite like a fireman in a steam locomotive. Don't teach me geography, I’ll teach anyone you want. The country has the only neighbor Malaysia, with whom there are very friendly relations. At least this phrase alone will tell you what Brunei is and which of The country represents itself: "Brunei is one of the richest and most prosperous states in the world. For the wealth of its inhabitants and the Sultan, the country is called" Islamic Disneyland "."
              and as for the wells taken away from them, it’s better to worry about your wells. It has long been appropriated by the oligarchs and their scumbags and money is flowing where necessary!

      From whom to protect? States kirdyknut that is not far off. Several helicopters will not save. Verily, God gave money, but there is no mind. The well will be taken away. That's for sure.

    Work at the factory.
    The average age of working personnel is well over 50. Although young people have begun to come, more and more are striving to get into the plant management. Few people want to go to the machine.
    The worst thing is that there has been a generation gap, i.e. there are no middle-aged workers. Grandfathers and grandchildren.
    grandfathers will leave, and the pipe, grandchildren will not have time to gain experience.
    Why am I writing to this article?
    It is said that before specialists used to calculate airplanes according to formulas in their minds and looking at the calculations, professionals immediately found errors.
    And now? take away the computer from the designer, technologist and what? And all ... a complete stupor.
    Because no one can count in the head and do not understand anything.

    I understand that progress is needed and cannot be stopped, but we are destroying the best that we had.

      Here, you are fundamentally wrong. The designer working at the computer owns the design methodology and extensive knowledge gained during his training and developed under the influence of senior comrades in KB. Comp, this is just a great tool that replaced the culman and months of digging in paper directories, state standard specifications and departmental recommendations. So, what do you think you need to return to the stylus and clay tablet ???

    Brunei is a brick in the Chinese Wall, which the United States erects around China. The re-equipment of the armies of the states of the anti-Chinese coalition is the first goal of the United States. Strengthening the confrontation between our sworn partners - the USA and China - is in our hands!
