OcramsRzr posted a topic in General Off-TopicTake this quiz to find out! http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-22000973 This link has links to the rest of the relevant articles. The BBC made a huge survey in 2013 (I know old, news) to determine social class and found that there are 7 in the UK: Elite, Established Middle Class (upper-middle class with high cultural and social engagement), Technical Middle Class (upper-middle-class but neither culturally nor socially engaged), New Affluent Workers (middle class with high social and cultural capital), Emergent Social Workers (working class wealth with high social capital and high basic cultural capital), Traditional Working Class (low social capital and cultural capital), Precariat (impoverished). I'm currently an Emergent Social Worker but will soon enough be a New Affluent Worker.
According to the BBC there is some kind of mutiny or possible coup going on. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-36809083 God sake. God sake. I hope for one of two outcomes: either this mutiny is quashed right now or the coup is done quickly and has the support of the fully military. Europe needs Turkey, the last thing it needs is another failed Middle Eastern state embroiled in civil war, and let's not forget the two million or so refugees Turkey houses. If this coup goes sour, and becomes protracted, there could be a HUGE exodus into Europe. EDIT: A link to Zero Hedge because that site always has the latest on insane events like this. I really hate the conspiracy stuff and the doom-mongering, but for live coverage of events Zero Hedge usually provides the most amount of detail and reports. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-07-15/martial-law-declared-turkey-helicopters-military-jets-flying-over-capital-army-tanks EDIT 2: The military coup FAILED. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-36813924
