Leaving the office yesterday, i got in at the 6th floor. First it stopped at the 5th and a man got on. At the 4th floor, another man and woman entered. From there we went straight down the other 4 floors unabated.
Mr. 4th floor recognized Mr. 5th floor and they chatted. Moments before the gates to freedom something like this transpired:
Some minorities are allowed to use their own language. I have been to a large city were many signs were written with Arabic characters.
In China, highschool is divided into junior secondary school and senior secondary school, both being three years. Only junior secondary school is compulsory. So, not all Chinese do attend highschool in the sense that they attend both junior and senior secondary school. In 2010 the percentage was 82.5. One should note that these percentages have increased strongly in the past two decades. To enter most higher education institutions it is not sufficient to finish senior secondary school, but one has to pass a state exam as well. I am aware that Chinese are obesessed with education, but it is also a fact that many Chinese still live in rural areas, where the quality of education is not always very high.
I have issues using website with crude names. FF/abe takes me the rest of the way.
Netflix plays at 1x speed. For some things that's ok, but for anime especially, i don't think i could survive it. I usually watch subbed, between1.3x and 1.77x. I also want to watch interesting lectures (online universities) whilst riding on my bike, but they switch the format to multiple videos of a few minutes each, which doesn't work so well for these ends.
I don't really watch recent tv shows, unless they really catch my eye. Recently, saw once upon a time and arrow, both which had great first seasons (well, ouat was great, arrow was just good enough to watch) but bad second seasons. Flash was unwatchable even in the first season. At least bad movies are fun to watch to some extent (special effects, short story) and that's where netflix ought to come in.
I just need to take a break from playing games now and then.
I'm listening to you just around the corner....
If this is what noone in the office makes you do, what has thepiratebay's ship being sunk made you do? I'm checking out netflix. (*gasp*)
Fedora, CentOS, Fedora, CentOS.
I have nothing to say.
Overheard a coworker in mid sentence, "but if we were talking about pesos, there'd be _a lot_ more zeroes"
On a side note, i've been at the office for a year. How do i know? Building access was denied. Happy anniversary...
A friend pointed me to Study proves we CAN see âinvisibleâ(TM) infrared light.
Spoiler alert for the movie Interstellar
It seems he did not get the main idea of the movie. The whole movie rests on the idea that it is possible to manipulate gravity in the past. The traversable wormhole was created by some humans in the far future and allowed the main character to communicate with the past, causing himself to join a space program, which would lead him to the place to communicate with the past, and by this save human kind from some disaster and in the far future allow to develop the technology to create the wormhole and a black hole with strange properties. So, it also involves a form of bootstrapping. Which makes even less sense, if indead traversable wormholes could be made at all.
Anyway, thanx for posting.
OK, i misunderstood what expat meant. I thought it had to do with revoking citizenship. There i go not looking up words again.
Who knows, maybe i'll take a peek at reddit again someday.
