I recall the biggest food challenge for me at the university was that food was so expensive at the university and around it. I had cheap food at home but didn't often have time to pack a lunch. And with the 30 minute shuttlebus to get to main campus from the cheap parking lot, anything I ate would have to be walking distance or carried with me the entire day. I pined for NYC bodegas where you can get a roll for $0.50 or something cheap just to tide you over until you get home. I went hungry many long days, but thanks to both subsidized and unsubsidized loans and a little bit of income, I wasn't starving.
Gates's "interest in making the world better" consists of writing checks (on accounts swelled by monopoly business practices) to big drug companies so they can experiment on people without their knowledge or consent.
Yeah he should write them to Get-a-freaking-clue Foundation, Science Whaa' and Paranoid Inc. instead.
Doubt it's a default if Russia voluntarily decides to do it, regardless it wouldn't matter what western financial institutes said.
The US bankers will want higher interest rate when they loan money to North Korea?
The loan is more or less nothing to begin with. Even less than just 10% remain.
That being said, Obama IS a weak president.
Make Bill Gates president.
Seriously. Maybe he have some ideas about how to do what's good for companies while also having an interest in making the world better.
I doubt other world leaders would be very upset at Bill Gates either? For what? Their XP service being discontinued?
Joking about the US actually able to threaten Russia military I suppose?
While US is spread all over the world I assume Russia isn't all that much so you may have to bring the war to their side.
Even if they wasn't somewhat equal simply fighting in someone else home court likely bring disadvantages, also again people defending their home country relative people who.. Well. I don't know.
Is the US vastly superior?
Globalfirepower rank them about the same, though they include a lot of factors, but shouldn't all those be included?
Sure the US have twice as many people and earn more money (but it's much more unevenly spread and less end up in the government coffins) and spend more money on the military (then again I don't know whatever Russia pay them and if so I guess they pay less and that more production may be government owned or at least be bought for cheaper.)
US seem to have bigger navy and air force and Russia bigger army. Who got the best missile defence? Anti-air?
Even if US is better what are their odds at Russian soil? Because if we are speaking fear of the bully I guess that's where it would be thought?
Many of the US project seem to deliver so-so and cost way more than what was originally planned.
I know lots of people say Russia got old gear but how much truth is there in that? Even if they do how much is newer? How much is newer in the US?
Do F-35 really beat the better models from Russia? Is F-22 clearly superior? I assume the F-15, F-16 and F-18 maybe is more cost effective?
I don't know whatever the SM-2, SM-3 and the S-300, S-400 and S-500 gear/systems is of similar scale but how are they really performing against each others?
I don't really know the composition of either sides nuclear weapons.
How hard is it to sink a carrier? How efficient is the total anti-missile and possibly torpedo defence in a carrier group?
Who win on the ground?
I assume the US may rely on missiles from ships and air-force and sure air-plane vs artillery may be a battle with an advantage to the air-plane but this being Russia how many missiles will actually hit and how well would the planes do? Throw in a bunch of submarines in the equation too.
You say that still more people cried at his dads funereal when will for say Obama
"Our great leader has been holding two sticks providing the energy output of 20 western built nuclear plants!"
The answer I wanted to write here:
Yeah, just look at Apple.
Apple released their smartphone. And then Ericsson, Nokia and Motorola relased theirs.
What say he's a buddy of them?
"Kid" wants to stay alive / not be imprisoned and doomed for life.
(And risked it all to tell everyone what he knew, and you people are trash-talking him for that.)
Yay, how awful of him!
He fled to safety.
Which nations are most likely to be amused by your reveals and won't fold over for US diplomacy?
Also it's not like he got a lot of offers?
Yeah. Snowden is taking away your freedom!
It's a shame we didn't fought over him.
Or he just want to push his agenda.
"Hey US, why are you worse than Russia?"
If Russia is better, it works.
If Russia is worse but lie then maybe it get reveaked and still works.
If Russia was as bad and admitted it it would still work.
