Nothing made up, U6 even includes "underemployed" beside the "short term discouraged". Not the mocking "percentage of working age not working" phrase you coined.

There used to be a broader rank used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics before the 90s, and by THAT measure we have near 25% unemployment. That's the old method that shadowstats.com uses, for example.

We're talking of playing with the liquid, or even swallowing it. Not harmful, you'll crap it out. Really.

Yes, I've worked in labs, two national labs in fact. Beware salts, organics, and huffing boiled or aersolized mercury. But other than that, not a threat. Playing with balls of the stuff in your hand won't hurt you.

You use phrases and wordings in both your posts only a U.S. writer would use.

And those OTHER english speaking countries in UK, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, UK all have the "shorter than 165 cm average" going on, PLENTY of women 5cm or more shorter than that.

Those women of other (shorter) ethnic backgrounds will be in online dating in US and Canada (if you want to claim just over the river), so your point is invalid

No. You missed the boat, so to speak.

Since you write as someone from the USA, plenty of your fellow citizens and immigrants are from those countries. And I forgot to mention also the UK countries where average height below 165cm, meaning half the women there are even shorter.

So all the flavors ice cream buffet, from double choco-fudge to custard to mango to vanilla, are just a short hop away for you, and they speak English, and long term relationship possible.

Ya'll hear about the geometer who went to the beach to catch some rays and became a tangent ?
