Look at the number of Americans who believe a guy named Jesus was born to a virgin mother, turned water into wine and rose from the dead. Not much different than astrology, is it?
I live in Japan and it seems like everyone I see has an iPhone.
I just got back from a business trip to Beijing and it seemed like everyone had an iPhone.
But hey, what would I know?
I've had enough of the NSA. I'm going to unplug from the Internet. I'll just yank this cord from my keyb
And I have two things to say.
1. It's an incredibly difficult job where new challenges have to be met with new thinking every day.
2. The people who are doing the difficult work deserve a huge gratitude of thanks for their effort. Working in full radiation suits and masks in 35C temperatures in summer took extraordinary strength of purpose and determination.
All of you that are going to make jokes about glowing whatever and Godzilla can go fuck yourselves. And I mean it. Go Fuck Yourself.
because he works harder and can write a paragraph in English with substantially fewer grammar and syntax errors.
When I first read this I sat straight up in my chair because thought it said one million years, then realized it said one billion years.
people will continue to parrot the line that the reason the U.S. has expensive and slow internet service is because the country is too big.
"It's too big!"
Nonsense. If it's too big, how in the world did you get those water, sewer and phone lines?
Watch how many people will say the same thing again and again in comments below.
"It's too big!"
You can't control a pack of dogs after they get a taste of blood.
Nonsense. I've lived in Japan for over 20 years and have permanent residence. I have far more personal freedom in Japan than I ever had in the U.S.
Why not just capture the thermal energy and methane gas from the steaming heaps of horse manure radiating from Washington D.C.?
Each level is considered 10 times more severe than the level below, just like earthquake intensity scales.
I live less than 100 miles south the Fukushima plant.
On behalf of the people around me, I'd like to tell the Godzilla and Ninja Turtles-type of posters to go fuck yourselves. This isn't a fucking Internet meme to some of us.
Some of us who weren't killed or hurt in the earthquake or tsunami still have financial problems from the economic downturn in our businesses. We're not all in a position to just be able to pack up and move. We don't all live in trailers like some of you Godzilla-spouting fuckers.
Some of us have had to dig deeply into our savings.
To be honest, I'm more worried now than I was a year ago. We're back to trying to contain events instead of making any progress toward cleaning up and decontaminating.
I think a bigger problem is this:
How are they going to continue to find people willing to work at the plant? They quit after a while.
Would you work in a sealed decontamination suit and breathing gear outside in a heat index about 140F for about the same money the night shift kid-manager at Burger King makes? Just how smart and competent can someone like that be?
And the problem is not the engineers, it's the reckless, cost-cutting zealot-assholes from the accounting departments who become the presidents of utilities instead of engineers.
More leaders = more entertainment.
I could move to another planet. I don't like this one anymore. It's too polluted with asshole politicians.
Yeah, right. And home of the brave who tolerate this, huh?
There's a shift in China. Some foreign goods/brands remain as status symbols, but some are losing their luster.
The U.S. has been acting like a bigger dick than usual lately. Chinese consumers would rather not buy American (or Japanese) brands when there's a choice. It doesn't matter that the dick's product are made in China.
That's not my opinion, so don't get mad at me. That's what I was told when I was there last month.
