    Venezuela has a navy. That said, it would be embarrassing to have your navy be attacked or defect AND to lose that much gold.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_of_the_Pacific, by the way, is the story of a South American war in the 19th Century, notable in that navies were so small that losing a ship or two completely changed fortunes in the war.
    Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

    From all the alarm clocks I've owned, the snooze button gives you 9 more minutes until the alarm goes off again.

    Now, first of all, why 9? There has to be some logical answer to this.

    Also, why can't you customize it to your own damn liking? 5 minutes...11 minutes...and so on.

    Mine currently has a 7 minute snooze. I think I've owned a 9 minute one before.

    That must be a Canadian built one - back when the exchange rate was not so good, apparently.
    Why must I feel like that? Why must I chase the cat? Nothin' but the dog in me.

    Actually not so true today, but never mind that detail. It's a great video of you like that sort of thing, where by "that sort of thing" I mean a hot female in motion.
