  1. Dear Economics teachers that I had... you are part of the most stupids people that I have never meet in my life. I believe that you have been programmed like bots. As such I couldn't expect more from you. However I was too young to realise it.

    this story concerned the potatos. Yeah I like french fries with ketchup...

    In http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Famine_(Ireland)

    the reason, since the XIX centuries all the potatos where the same in Europe. So when the shadows came, it was easy to wipe out all the production at once. And that my friend is the biggest factor in this crisis. Why they didn't told me that ?

    "Ottoman aid

    In 1845, Ottoman Sultan Abdülmecid declared his intention to send £10,000 to Irish farmers but Queen Victoria requested that the Sultan send only £1000, because she herself had sent only £2000. The Sultan sent the £1000 sterling but also secretly sent three ships full of food. The English courts tried to block the ships, but the food arrived at Drogheda harbour and was left there by Ottoman sailors."
