No, not "a lot". Very, very few. This is a common delusion among black youth, thinking they're going to make it big in sports. There are only 30 NBA teams, with 15 players each. Each team has only a few new hires each year, maybe 4. So that's 2.9 million high school graduates potentially competing for 120 jobs.
No, not "a lot". Very, very few. This is a common delusion among youth, thinking they're going to make it big in entertainment. There is only 1 Lady Gaga, who is famous for her singing and breaking social norms (wearing dresses made of meat, etc). It's unlikely that more than 1 or at most a handful of people could become successful for this. So that's 2.9 million high school graduates potentially competing for 1 job.
How about instead you show kids in every group, who all have their own problems and worries, that anyone can be wildly successful by being the best in any field, whether it is programming, basketball, or anything?
If you go by that argument, I can also point out that alot of the jocks from high school are now making many, many millions of dollars as professional athletes (NFL, NBA, etc.)
Disclaimer: Didn't RTFA, but still, dumb argument.
Well, that just about sums up the attitude of Northern Virginia towards the rest of the state.
There's a "rest of the state?"
(Also in NoVA, no outages or severe weather here)
hope there's at least some south korean protagnoists in the game or else i'm pretty sure i'm gonna get capped in the face by some idiot for being korean.
Read this thread where these screenshots first showed up back in January (from a new account with a single post). And decide for yourself...
* Angry Birds: Not by "clickgamer" it's by Rovio.
* Windows 7 Ultimate? As an app you can download from Windows 8?
* "App Store" is trademarked by Apple.
* Title bar text isn't centered like in other Win8 leaks.
FAKE. move along, nothing to see here....
For real theories, even though we're trusting experts, the experts can continually provide consistent results that support the theories.
When someone makes an extrordinary claim in religion (i.e., cured blindness via prayer), it has generally not been possible to verify or reproduce the claims (or else a lucrative business would be starting blindness cure clinics where people pray for you until you're healed, right?). But people still have faith anyway. That's the difference.
With religion, even the experts can't reproduce or verify their own claims. (If prayer really worked better than western medicine, you would see a faith healer replace the surgeon general)
"...I want usability. And Apple has that.
Thus, to keep a spacecraft operating effectively, a full analysis must be done to take into account all energy (thermal or otherwise) sources in a spacecraft and redirect energy to appropriately sized energy sinks (radiators, heat-pies, etc.).
Mmmmmmmm... heat-pies.. glarggghughhhhhh *Drool*
As of March 9th, we've had a total of 67 full days in the year. (31 in jan, 28 in feb, 8 in march). This year we have 365 days. Our year is only 18.35616% over.
350k sales in 67 days translates to 1907k sales in 365 days.
1907k * $0.99 * (35%) = $660.8k
In reality, I beat the first 7 rounds, then lost 10 in a row. Then later lost about 12-15 rounds in a row and ragequit immediately.
GET OUT OF MY HEAD!!!
