If there are trees nearby and little to no border control at the current point, I'll pay you 50.000$ now and another 250.000$ once the tunnel is finished.

The goal is to write all three and four letter combinations and try to make sense of it.

All the reasons (global economic crisis stimulating international competition, nationalisms) and mechanisms (countries grouped into camps like EU and America vs Iran-China-Russia - which would pull one after another into the conflict) for the world war are in place most of the time. Just a spark is enough to trigger it - it's a complex system with self-organised criticality. Or is the self-organised critically fad over? Anyway, triggering the conflict is IMHO not a matter of the spark being big enough but about giving it many enough tries. Maybe it's 1 per 1000 now and was 1 per 100 before the previous WWs - probably it decreased, but if we keep trying the fire will start.

Paul, I'm not at all hysterical about it... *plucks the strings of the fiddle*
