“If you repay me not on such a day
In such a place, such sum or sums as are
Expressed in the condition, let the forfeit
Be nominated for an equal pound
Of your fair flesh, to be cut off and taken
In what part of your body pleaseth me.”  – Merchant of Venice

There’s been increasing talk lately of Greece leaving the Euro.  And some of it seems to be saying that a Grexit wouldn’t be that bad.  In my opinion, it would be awful for Greece if they left, truly catastrophic.  Akin to the pound of flesh Skylock tried to bargain for in Merchant of Venice.  Other countries wouldn’t suffer nearly so bad, but Greece would be left near to dying. Don’t do it Greece!
