It's rarely a good idea to reply to an AC but I'll bite. I'm not saying it's good or bad for you, I don't know but propylene glycol is the same stuff they use in artificial fog for stage smoke machines. I haven't heard of too many stage manager deaths related to smoke machines. Given the time I spent in rock clubs in my youth I'm sure I've inhaled gallons of the stuff. While it doesn't appear carcinogenic, it can be related to respiratory irritation.
...the real answer isn't wellness programs, it's get health insurance out of the hands of employers.
This is exactly right. TFA isn't even a question if these two pieces are separated. Let's not band aid what is already a broken system, separate the two and if people want discounts/incentives from their insurer let them elect to wear a device, just like they are doing with auto insurance now. None of this has anything to do with my employer and we've only incentivized their interest in my personal life by attaching the two.
I'm Romanian, and I lived in Transylvania for 7 years, I even got some Transylvanian accent. Trust me, the Nemoidians do NOT have a Transylvanian accent. I didn't think they had a Japanese accent either. in fact, I didn't think any characters had a specific accent, nor did I care.
Agreed, but it did seem to me that they had the stereotype of a dubbed japanese accent but you'd probably have to be familiar with the north american localized content for imported films to know that. Of course, George Lucas would have been...
FYI, I know that the Ewoks at least spoke Tagalog (Filipino), so it is entirely possible that the other species were speaking other obscure languages.
And thus the beginning of the downhill slide.
The franchise has included prominent and strong female characters, like Princess Leia
And...? You make it sound like that's just the start of a long list, so let's hear the rest of it.
How about Boushh the bounty hunter?
That may be a comprehension error on my part, I thought the conversation started with the amount of electricity consumed per household. I agree the ultimate definition is your carbon footprint but if the first gentleman's house is heated with electricity and the German's primarily use gas then of course I would expect there to be a large delta between the two. I don't know what Germans typically use for home heating.
In the Pacific Northwest our climate is generally mild and my heating expenses are VERY low. Many of us just use windows to regulate indoor temperature except in the coldest months of the year so heating and cooling for me is a small percentage of my household consumption. I think my major appliances like the dryer, dishwaher, refrigerator and freezer are what drives my electricity bill.
We can predict everything, except the future.
