From TFA: "Fiala has been negotiating with the Czech Pirates/STAN coalition to form a five-party coalition government that will have a comfortable majority in the Chamber of Deputies."

Wait, a government of a real country that includes Pirates and STANs?

Looking forward to a lot of Fark Headlines that Czech all the boxes.

Well, I suppose, to be the man, you've gotta beat Zeman.

Props to the current PM for naming the coalition as head and joining the opposition. Nice to see leaders putting democracy first there rather than making it about themselves in a bad situation like this

"The president's ailment was not named, but local media, citing anonymous sources, have reported that he is suffering from hepatic encephalopathy, a disorder of the nervous system caused by chronic liver disease, such as cirrhosis. "

Someone's suggesting that the President had too much of the Becherovka in his life...

Just checked, and they're all the way down to fourth, wow. Number one is now Belarus, and can you farking blame them?

CSB, I was an exchange student in Pilsen (Plzĕn, locally) for a year in 94-95. Spent a lot of time in Prague, and if you ever have the opportunity, I suggest you do the same.

That plot line never made sense to me.

I know it's a comedy and not to be taken too seriously, but I've always thought it would have been better to have the base commander take his floozie for a joyride with Murray et al accidentally locked in the back of the vehicle and end up lost in Czechoslovakia. Or for him to be a spy/defector who stole it with the guys still locked in. That way, when they get back, they wouldn't be, you know, arrested for treason or dereliction of duty instead of being hailed heroes.

DNRTFA and my suspicion was it might be a blatant right-wing power grab. If it's not, that's good.

And it's a life lesson we should all remember - you gotta Czechia self before you wreck yo' self.

My son used to play Everquest.   He was online talking to another player and where they were from came up I guess.   He comes into the living room and ask me where "Kazech" (his pronunciation sort of) was.  I said, off the top of my head, "Kazakhstan?  It's a country in Central Asia".   He returns in a few minutes and says no, it's not that.  So I go into his room to see for myself.   The fellow he was talking to said he was Czech.

I looked at my kid and said, "Honey, you are also part Czech, your last name is Czech".   I feel like I had failed him somehow that he did know that.   But he was always crap at geography.  It took months for me to convince him that Salem, Oregon was south of Seattle.  I did show him on a map where the Czech Republic is.  Not sure if it stuck.

Spent about 5 months there as a 23 year old college senior in 2002. They were higher ranked back then and not a part of the EU.

Need to head back. It was supposed to be last year but...you know...all this...
