    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.

    I prefer beef stew. For rotisserie chicken, I will just eat it as is unless it has been in the fridge over night. In that case, so some strange reason, chicken always have some kind of strange taste to it (I call it the taste of a fridge) no matter how many shrink wraps I used.

    Don't know about Thailand as I did not go there, but when I was in Osaka last year, I did see a lot of Chinese tours. They are not really "touring". They are most like shopping for diapers, medications....I could even see some drug marts have prepackaged items ready for them in Shisaibashi area.

    Winter time, I am usually in Canada and the place I am at usually get down to -20. This year is a lot warmer and I like it. So, we have something call roof rack which can be extended to 40 ft. Therefore, no need to climb unless your roof is relatively flat, then for your own safely, it would be best to hire professional. The slope on the roof also allow the snow to slide and fall to the ground if it gets too heavy. Ice damping is a concern though if it get warm and cold again. Pipes are within walls to avoid frozen and burst pipes unless some stupid raccoon eat up all the insulation which happened to me once.

    Even people are used to drive and operate in winter with icy road, we do see car accidents. The first batch of cars that will go into the ditch and go belly up are usually those cars with AWD/4WD. The drivers tend to think that with AWD/4WD they are invincible and would slip. Reality and physics proofs them wrong. Winter tires do make a difference but still need to drive accordingly.

    I knew it. Give it to the porn industry, it will make use of it. Next is 4K, then on the other had, a lot of actors/actresses probably look much if the screen is not as clear. Things just look better when it is fuzzy.

    "promote scientific achievement to China" ? LOL. Without free thoughts, there would be no innovations or even advancement.

    Tax revenue agents can only harass little people. For wealthy people they will hire lawyer to deal with them and in the end they will only need to pay back a portion - law is fair, but it is more fair to some than others.

    No, thanks. One time I was just playing around with food and put chocolate onto the spaghetti, the result is that I had to throw away the whole plate of spaghetti.

    Should you even nominate an actor based on quota rather than actual acting skill?

    Jupiter ascending was crap. Fifty Shades of Grey is not in the gene of film I would watch, so regardless it will be boring to me and have no plan to watch it either. Pixels is stupid but funny as you would expect from those type of films (If I want something intelligent to watch, I would be reading scientific journals of watching documentary rather than a entertainment movie).

    Broke the immigration law, so deport. What's the fuss about? What is the point of having the law if you do not uphold it?

    After what happened in Cologne, Germany over the new year, I think they should re-think the whole thing.
