I hope the neighbour's cow dies

There is a saying in Serbian, which is 'I hope the neighbour's cow dies'. Abramovich used it lately. Do they all wish you to do your best?

The obvious thing that springs to mind is the media - the media needs its share of good boys and bad boys. Sometimes even in the same person who falls off the pedestal.

One other irony is that on tests of values, performers list "competition" in the least favoured values. the same individuals also score very high on competitiveness. Seems like competitive people don't like competition!
