+ - Obama calling for 53B$ for High Speed Rail->

Submitted by Antisyzygy
Antisyzygy (1495469) writes "President Obama is calling for 53B dollars to be appropriated for the construction of high-speed rail in the United States over the next 6 years. Assuming Congress approves this plan, the funding would be spent on developing and/or improving trains that travel at approximately 250 miles/hour, as well as spent on connecting existing rail lines to new developed high speed lines."

Go fuck yourself you pedantic asshole.

I will explain what this sentence means to you now. Basically, it means the sentence you quoted is perfectly understandable. However, since you're a pedantic asshole, if everything isn't written to your supposed perfect standards you go into a blind rage and mash at your keyboard, hooting and hollering and generally doing what pedantic assholes do.

So go fuck yourself you pedantic asshole.

"a quick mention that this number is on the Federal Do Not Call list sends them into a near panic state, scrambling to hang up"

Really? I've telemarketed before in my dark past. When people told me they were on the do not call list I would say 'I don't care' and would go into the pitch. Then they'd hang up on me. It was just fun when people thought they could thwart me by being smarmy or clever. I hated my job and all those who I had to deal with on the phone. So anybody who tried stuff like the 'do not call list' automatically wound up back in the caller registry. Your best bet is to just hang up the phone.

Read the article idiot.

"The report also explains that US Army researchers developed a protein that attacks the bacteria that causes plaque, which can lead to gum disease. This protein can easily be incorporated into the gum, making it a serious alternative to toothbrush and toothpaste, the researchers claim. "

Wow Kdawson did you choose that red colour all by yourself? This surely is big important news. Seeing as time travel is possibly the most pressing scientific issue of the day. Plus the inclusion of non specific aspects of quantum mechanics really lends a sense credibility to the theory.

I used quantum mechanics to type this message out.
