With crowed places and subways, NY is a really bad place for this and very good breeding ground for any infectious decease.

Unless all the additional devices such as some EPROM/microcontroller programmers will work in W10, I will always have 1 machine in XP. The rest will never be Windows (mostly Linux) as I am really sick as tire of its progression to slowness on each every patch. Never mind many reboots just to update some totally non-essential applications such as IE......

Windows? LOL. Some business just started to move from XP to W7. Still do not like to reboot a zillion times for updating something that is totally non-essential applications such as IE, outlook......that has nothing to do with OS/kernel.

By their definition of pornographic, pretty much all the female characters will have to be censored the whole body in black.

This kind of no dating rule is pretty stupid. You only see this in Japan or any Asia entertainment industry.

Aren't some of the characters not Japanese? I have yet to meet a non-Japanese with a Japanese name.

"Botox has frozen the faces of countless Hollywood stars", I have seen some Asian stars as well. Their faces look very much like plastic - not good at all. If you get old, then accept it. While at it, ask for senior discount.

Even Chinese themselves do not purchase foods with made in China label. Google Chinese fake foods and you will find loads of images/videos showing those fake foods, etc. Never mind rotten meat, industrial strength chemicals etc. have also been reported being use.

Don't like smoke and also do not like strong perfume (if anyone could smell the perfume from 3 feet away, then it is too much to mask off the person's BO). My nose is way too sensitive for those.
Just put them into a air-tight room and have them smoke all they want.

Costs too much and really no financial benefit for the hosting country. Except for them to brag or show off. Some countries and their citizens are getting smart, that' why some of them withdrew their bids to host the 2022 winter Olympic, from 6 down to 4.

Probably not the first time she met face to face with the guy; otherwise, why would anyone would meet a person in his/her own home for the first time? Unless one is running some home based business.

Another prove that men's memories are like RAM in computer, it is gone once power is off. And, women's are like hard drive, they will recall it for as long as it needs.

Actually, any electric conductor is affected by eddy current. If you happen to have those hard drive magnets, when you drop an aluminum ring through it, you will see the rate of decent is a lot slower. If I remember right, those rocket power speed car that they use to break the speed record in salt like, they also use similar mechanism as braking in addition to the parachute as conventional braking system (brake pads) is useless with that speed.
