Ubleha za idiote

Development Agency

The highest ranking Ublehaš of some (wealthy) state. A convenient political apparatus for maintaining stability of the local currency in such a manner that it looks like an act of kindness towards another state (the beneficiary). They tend to finance almost anything that is well-packed into everything that is listed in this guide, with a particular focus on community development (See), democracy (See) and human rights (See).

   

ACRONYMS (in general)

One of the important criteria based on which the level of ublehahood is instantly determined. According to this criterion, there are the following levels:

The first (highest) level: a person in his/her written communication does not write sentences containing more than 7 words,  where at least 3 words are acronyms. For example: "See. Att. FYI. TBC.

Poselami amidžu (See) and tell him that “ that thing” is OK. " Obviously, the advantages of acronyms are unmistakeable. Time saving, confidentiality of data and transparent professionalism and perfection in technical language usage. Every layman simply has to be fascinated and has to give his/her moral approval for the high salary for the speakers in question.

Corruption

A phenomenon typical among the locals (See). The internationals tend to condemn it pointedly and are involved in it only sporadically and inadvertently but always with the best intentions.  Corruption differs from a project (See) in that  it has a functional infrastructure (See) and very tangible results (See) often decorated with so-called concrete (or plaster) accessories in the form of lions, swans, angels, pseudo-Doric-Ionic-Corinthian silver-plated columns, etc.

   

Consultant

A higher being, an ublehaš (See) of a higher category, with higher income, who pretends to and looks like s/he knows all this.
