I would like to give an open invitation to the people in charge in FAO, the same ones who evaluated and decided that Venezuela had sufficient merits to be credited with a recognition from this UN organization for its food and agricultural advancements in favour of eradicating hunger, to move to Venezuela, to the city of their choice, with no UN credentials, and for 6 month feed themselves and their families with the Venezuelan average income, which I'll be happy to provide in the form of charitable donation. If you survive I'd be impressed, as for now I am just terribly sorry for your ignorance.
