    There is a reason for streamline, it is called aerodynamic. Less resistance, faster and saves gas. I remember there was some anime with cars that transforms into robot (not Transformer) from Japan before. I think the name is something Galvion. Why not just use that?

    Signing does not mean anything, One good example is the current Canada Liberal government. "Sign it in pencil" without supporting what it was signing. So, do not get fool by the selfie guy from the real problems.

    You need Math regardless what line of works you will be doing. Whether you look at your own bank statement or even in some shady business. Where money is involved, you need math. You may not need calculus/algabra, but at least basic math and something a little bit more complicate than +,-,x and / . Acting and psychology would be a very big help in the work of government official as well as management.

    With more and more influence from mainland China robbing its own independent governing, etc; that is to be expecting.

    Now, if they can make a utensil to detect peanuts/nuts in real-time. That would be a lot better. If the people wants to cut down sodium, all he/she needs is to eat less salt. After a while, he/she will get used to it. I used to east quite salty, but not anymore. Unfortunately, too little sodium is also not good either. My last blood test, the doctor had already stated that my sodium level is low and any lower he will start worrying. Damn, you cannot have it either way.

    Try those India songs, they are even worst.It makes me want to rip my ears off. I do not understand why they are 10 octane higher than normal.

    I kind of like Nakamura Masatoshi, Nakajima Miyuki and Iwasaki Hiromi - well that pretty much tells you roughly how old I am.

    Kimono. The slit with long pants reminds me of those traditional female clothes from Vietnam though.

    Most likely people will wear them without the face mask. I do not even see people wear sky mask in -20C temperature in Northern hemisphere. People will get suspicious (bank robbers or something) if you wear it outside of sky hill. I am sure the mask will be a good sell for Muslim extremist though.

    So, their bubble about no virus...on Apple just burst - no OS is safe. Well except VMS that had been shown to be non-hackable., but then hardly anything runs on it.

    “The quality of Chinese products meets our everyday needs,”

    Depending on the type of products, that is highly questionable. I sure do not want to find out I have consumed food with industrial strength chemicals in there or even perhaps made with some thing that is not supposed to be consumed at all.

    Well, at least it is in Taiwan that at least those responsible will be arrested and put on trial. If it is in China, you bet that they will arrest anyone who reports this, the families of the victims will be silenced and those responsible will stillbe running wild and free.

    A bit like how the term Arabic numerals isn't meant to suggest that they are only used in the Middle East.

    Actually Arabic numerals is from Hindu

    As an XP system gets farther and farther away from the last set of security patches (since XP patches are or will be no longer produced), more and more doors open for the hackers. I don't think they care how slow the computer is. Any indication it's running XP would be like a big "Stuff for Free!" sign to hackers. Why wouldn't they just read your USB stick, having hacked your machine?

    Actually, running Windows would be like painting a big target sign to hackers.

    Beside, PC is not selling as well, so we need a big resource hog to push the new PC sale, Windows somthing_something.

    Nice and all that, but the heating element is difficult to clean in a kettle. Wouldn't it be the same if you put a pot with water over the stove and throw in the Udon? The pot is a lot easier to clean.

    I'm pretty sure the Chinese are not going to Thailand to buy diapers and medications...

    Maybe some other food related items?? Honestly, who would trust food/mediation related products that are made in China unless I want some industrial strength chemicals for something else.

    More subscriptions, more personal information or theirs pets information (assuming people actually put in his/her real information) facebook could sell to advertising companies - more profit.
