    The rational might be to assist in a financial bail-out but the bureaucrats have probably already divvied up the cash.

    I said that Norwegian politicians who hand out the prize should stop try to redefine the prize and listen more to the original intent of the prize. The prize should at least be given to someone who have done recent achievements to peace. Problem is, recently EU has done the exact opposite.
    To be fair Alfred had very little to do with the Peace prize, that was his wife's idea. She persuaded him he needed to rehabilitate his legacy. The prizes were originally to honor those who made developments in Nobel's field - arms manufacture and dealing. That's why there's no prize for mathematics.

    I did that one. Said the money is probably going to Greece.
