    So Petrobas has a debt of US$116 BILLION.

    ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTEEN BILLION DOLLARS.

    No wonder it recently had to borrow more. Debt is never repaid according to Stevie. So Pterobas can never expect to pay this off. Just borrow more and more.

    Also now we know why Petrobas is no longer “cut off” from global capital markets.

    It finally had the books to show. Hence no longer “cut off”.

    US$116 billion! How do you say WTF on Portuguese?

    Your debts are counted in Trillions. That's a factor 1000...

    I doubt PBR will make it out of this as a private company. The fraud and SEC investigations haven't even started yet.
    They're in deep doo doo
    With very little cash and not a lot of assets to pay the claims.

    Like you say about location being irrelevant, a nations debt is irrelevant unless they are in court from investors getting screwed suing that nation.

    Going to prove I do not live in Massachusetts sweet stevie?

    I don't need to. You are lying.

    Your debt is not relevant until it's time to pay back. In that we agree.

    Imagine we where neighbours. You flash your credit card and buy a house, car, new kitchen, rebuild your swimmingpool... you get the idea.. Because you are the bank manager your credit rate is top and you can build up a debt that excedes your annual income by multiples of 10.
    You have it all, problem is that your income depends on the tax of your coworkers...
    Mathematically, you will reach a point, because of the accumulating interests, where you will either have to amortize in order to not get suffocated, or increase the taxation of your coworkers.
    Your coworkers are just as greedy as you though, and they will indeed switch loyalty in favour of a competing bank if you cut their share. As for amortizing, you would need to do something unthinkable... you would have to change the say you live, in order to pay your debt back for the rest of your active life.

    I'll be watching you from across the street. The few things I have, I paid cash, except of the house and car, which will be paid for long before my kids moves out. I'll be watching you and thinking.... Rich? In what?? And why???

    All you have is a barrel full of IOU's...

    @4 Captain Poppy from Mass.

    Capt.,

    What can we deduce from Troll-boy, Stevie @5 ??

    @5 “The few things I have, I paid cash, except of the house and car, which will be paid for long before my kids moves out. ”

    So, Stevie never qualified for credit??

    And he's jealous??

    I think he's confused- if Poppy is servicing his debt, why must his co-workers be “taxed” more.

    I don't think he understands LENDING - but then, he does s

    We ALL know Poppy is from Massachusetts, just ask Voicey - he has it dialed-in by now...

    Does Stevie doubt that?? Based on what??

    The bank manager represents your country. The salary, taxation.

    The neighbour represents the “poor” nations.

    You see, if you guys don't pay, your kids will have to. There is no such thing as eternal credit worthiness. And even if there was, the interests will at some point equal the output of the affected economy.
    You are just kicking the ball ahead of you, like the good parents you are, you will either default or let next generation take the bill...

    Not at all. Argentinas debt isn't even near a Trillion... Much less 18 of them...
    Yes, yes.. GDP..

    Problem is, the nation pays the debt, while random pockets collects on GDP.

    Which again bring us to taxes. Or lack thereof...

    You finally get it - CFK's government for the past 10 years, now they don't want to pay the Bondholders who lent the money....

    Whereas,other nations ARE honouring their debts.

    Sorry, you can't have it both ways!

    You guys paying bills is like me digging holes. The more I dig, the bigger the hole gets...

    I was wondering what it would take for you to convince me that a growing debt is a sign of a debt being paid off.

    Abstract mathematics and a fifth dimension.

    It all makes sense now.

    Nor Brazil whose debt is in the trillions.

    I suspect stevie is jealous that he cannot get credit, most likely because he cannot service or if he can,like Argentina he choices not too.

    Stevie do you remember Sussie...the RG_Pro American? That is who started the location shit. You think I am from where if not Massachusetts? Why do you work hard to make yourself look stupid?

    You don't live in Massachusetts. We both know that. You could say you come from Delaware, but that would be a lie too. Everything points at you living inside an abandoned mall in Detroit, but I'm not sure yet...

    A bit weak, buddy - Poppy seems a lot more confident of who he is, than you are about your origins or whereabouts.

    Are you a 75-80 yo SUPA TUPA anarchist living in exile in Europe, as you claimed, a young Oiler's Mate on a service vessel in the Mare Argentina, or a young hipster metrosexual Uruguano in MVD, or a rural family man farmer in N. Uruguay, ideologically and socially out of touch?

    I suppose it depends who you're talking to, or what you remember from previous posts... ?

    I would love you to know where I live but you apperantly base everyone on you......lying and hiding where you live. I'd even meet you in Argentina. it seems your menial existence is sadder with each passing year.
    I can send you a post card? You can even send me one.
    I'm not lying.....or hiding.....so my question to you is.....why do you seemingly lie....and definitively hide? Embarrassment or fear?
    BTW......everyone knows Dan did himself in. Burned his bridges.........but I bet he seeded flowers. How's the nits doing? Full grown lice yet?

    Sounds reasonable - if you are actually in SA, Poppy is offering to fly thousands of miles to meet in Argentina.
    Surely you could go the short distance from Uruguay, to meet in BA.

    He's not like wee man voicey who wants to 'beat people up' in a Glasgow Starbucks.

    You would have the safety of your SA hermanos.

    No, it's not possible for you, is it?

    You mean it sounds reasonable for me to travel to Buenos Aires in order to meet with a weirdo stalker deprived of friends?

    Tell you what, you are in France, right?

    I travel to Switzerland and we meet in the round house that looks like a cheese.

    Does that sound reasonable too?

    If you wish to put a name and a place to Capt Poppy, then the opportunity is being provided to you, without having to travel to Massachusetts.

    Very accommodating of the Capt, I would say.

    After calling him out as a liar for saying he lives in Massachusetts-and insisting you live in Uruguay, here's a chance to prove yourself.

    According to your present story, you are NOT the 80 yo SUPA TUPA you originally pretended to be.
    Instead, you called Capt “0ld” - you can't possibly be afraid of a “Grandpa”, can you?

    You're like Timmerman - given the chance to meet and you won't.

    Could it be that you CAN'T meet him?

    You guys should really try match.com. This is a sad excuse of a news site, and as dating site it's even worse.

    I got an idea. Visit eachother.

    I'm flattered, call it scared, overwhealmed... But most of all, I'm not interested.
