Tanks will roll in regardless. The CCP has no choice in the matter or the uprising will spread to the mainland! And it would. So yeah, get ready for international condemnation followed by a short bout of amnesia. Yeah, they're the global factory of the world and THEY KNOW IT! So nobody is in any bargaining position anyways.

The CCP rules with an iron fist in a velvet glove.

EMP. Lightning struck a few houses down from me. Instantly I lost WiFi connectivity when the bolt stuck while everything else was fully functional except for the router which still had power. Both my computer and router are connected to a SmartUPS with a valid grounded connection. Basically, the WiFi antennas picked up the EMP and passed it down to the chipset; effectively "fried".

Scary stuff. You said he was holding an umbrella at the time. What is in use at made of metal? FYI, lightning starts from the ground and forms filaments reaching out, at which point the bolt comes down from the sky and meets up with it. The connection is made and the discharge is completed to it's final destination. You're father (like many others) was in its path along the way. I suspect that umbrella made for a nice pathway for the filament to form.

So far, I've read all the previous rants about Australia from other posters. For a moment, I could be convinced they were talking about either the US or UK. Is the entire "West" just fucked? The running theme out of all this, is nations that are falling on the sword for immigrants whom are ungrateful at that. It's a mindset that's not sustainable for any prosperous nation state!

If privacy is a voter's primary concern in the US, it's probably best to vote based on the individual candidate's position than on the candidate's party.

Correct! However, the Democrat is a united front, and subsequently vote in lock-step. The Republican party as a political organization has its head up its ass. They're done! We now have a one-party-rule with the Hispanic now keeping them in power in perpetuity giving them "free shit". So yes, don't vote for either party. The backs of the establishment must be broken!

Not going to happen. People are too fucking stupid.

Logically, that comment makes sense. But when dealing with product design, it's often an appeal to emotions. It's a (one of many) primary aspect of sales.

That all said however, the weakness in the case design looks to be near or at the side volume buttons. There's just too much material removed to ensure structural integrity at load; or so it looks as much from the examples I've seen so far. Though, I don't think the protruding camera is a problem given most people will have a case over the phone; thus making the back completely flush.

Actually, it could be the pants (and poor judgement of storing the phone). Many designer jeans are already tight round the thigh and buttocks. Typically these jeans have shallow front pockets; thus the phone the phone doesn't travel deep enough to run parallel with the leg. In that situation, the end of the phone would be pressing against your hip when sitting down. It would be uncomfortable. Sitting on the phone in the back pocket will surely bend it regardless of what pants you're wearing however.

The world could be on fire, and I wouldn't care. The big problem I have with AGW isn't the pursuit of science and research of the topic, but how everyone else including the politicians feel that everyone but themselves are the problem and must make due with less. Yeah, fuck that; belch the CO2 baby! I have zero tolerance for hypocrites!
