    I'm so sick of NK polluting the sea with their rockets and missiles. How many more toxins are they intending to kill off the oceanic ecosystem with?

    Good night Mr. Nemoy. You lived long, and certainly prospered with the legacy you've left behind. We'll miss you, so rest well.

    Putin's been in "office" too long. He needs to learn how to give others a chance to lead Russia towards more progressive and profitable paths. But it seems he's gripped with a lust for keeping his power status.

    Living at home after 18 denies anyone from learning the responsibilities of striking it out on one's own. Logically it would be smart to start off with a room-mate or 3 to learn how to pay (and reduce the amount of rent) one pays, pay your utilities, buy food and so on. I can understand someone staying home while they're in college or returning to their parents home due to dire financial straights (what parent doesn't want to protect their child when they can?), but once they get a reasonable job, they have to learn to leave the security of the home and learn how to deal with the rest of the world. Parent's don't live forever, and accidents can happen in this world that can take them away.

    @Plasticmonkey the barbaric lifestyle that is not considered legal in many Western countries such as female genital mutilation, subjugation and abuse of women, honor killings, disregard of Federal laws in favor of religious "laws", persecution of others for "blasphemy" or apostacy, murder of those who don't agree or wilfully subjugate to another's religious beliefs, the list goes on.

    Nobody cares that Muslims wear their niqab, hajibs/etc, or don't eat pork or drink alcohol, eat only halal food and pray 5+ times a day. But when one's religious beliefs (not to be confused with "cultural" beliefs) advocates for ideals that run counter to the laws of the land they're in and human rights laws that are protected in those lands, there is going to be a problem, a serious problem.

    Yeah, those who see wealth above love are going to get what they work for. In my country, instead of women expecting a sugar-daddy, they look into making themselves wealthy. 2 people that make an equal amount of income are much stronger together than one person with no income leeching off the person with a lot of money.

    While this "survey" is still just considered a gossip thing, the perspective that the woman(or man) expects the to be able to spend the rich person's money is severe delusion. Many smart rich guys are rich because they don't let the women have unlimited access to their funds.

    Even if I was rich, I wouldn't want to marry a woman that sat on her butt all day spending all the cash that I worked for. She'd better get out there and earn her own money and show that she herself is fiscally responsible and capable of taking care of herself. Because there is never any guarantee that anyone will keep the wealth they have for the rest of their lives.

    One of my co-workers is a young woman with a child, she left the father and stated that making herself reliant soley on his income was the biggest mistake ever. She now is trying to buy her own house with her own money so she'll never be stuck in a situation where she doesn't have control of her environment or finances.

    What position would anyone rather be in a relationship. Getting kicked out of someone elses house, or kicking someone out of your own house during an argument?

    I'm sorry, but I LIKE my environment not being mucked up by grease heads that are so hell bent on making cash that they'll use money to sway politicians to help them make more money off a non sustainable resource while at the same time making a lot of unhealthy environmental side effects for the locals. Oil money can't change fact (although it can apparently pull the wool over some gullible people's eyes). Eventually there will be a day when old crude oil will be a joke and the people that were making off like bandits will be seen for the evil greed monkeys' they are. Teddy Roosevelt is spinning in his grave as a Republican progressive if he was here to see what the GOP plans to do to one of his most important legacies.

    Ford, GMC, etc want to sell off as many gasoline vehicles as they can because once fully functional Electric vehicles that don't need to be charged or use batteries come around, they'll be stuck with dead weight stock. You'd better believe an actual continual electrical pulse generator is being researched and it will change everything.

    There are many ways to generate oil besides drilling and fracking the environment to death. A lot of that deep frying grease, oily residue from cooking/food/material production alone can be looked into for generating enough oil to keep manufacturing plastics and other non-fuel items. Even the French have already developed a "gasoline" generating bacteria to create combustible fuel without using oil.

    Like tobacco companies selling unhealthy product, so are oil companies. If people don't focus on changing how things are done, things will never change.

    Some folks have to learn the hard way. Problem with teens is that they don't understand some choices they make are LIFE choices that can affect them for the rest of their life, or in some cases end in death. All are permanent and there is no "going back".

    @Hollis, thank you for summarizing the entirety of the Qur'an. Too many people don't understand that this is exactly what Islam is. From it's own texts, to Islamic history and currently Islamic governed states.

    Leave them be. They want to eliminate those who have vaccinations available, then they're going to have to suffer the consequences. Unfortunately the children will have to suffer the ignorance of the adults.

    What a bunch of spoiled idiotic brats. Make them live in a ghetto with gang-bangers, drug dealers, and drive-bys. They'll be too worried about dealing with those, instead of having enough time to "plot" killing people on a mass shooting. What the hell is wrong with these suburban twits that this is what they intend to do with their lives? Too "bored" with having enough in life?

    I'm pretty sure we'll be going senile by the time those films come out Smith. Why back in my day.... Anyways, I do hope they don't keep re-booting them again. All they need to do is combine storylines as they are now.

    Another fact that news has become not much more than sensationalism. Got search for some actual truth in reporting nowadays.

    As an American, I can verify this film isn't worth watching. But I watched it only because I have the freedom to chose what I want to see or not an ofc we're not going to allow any country to dictate what we can or cannot watch here.

    @Honestdictator So YOU know what Islam is, I suppose? I'm a muslim and I say they aren't (or, put another way, I will not acknowledge them as muslims). From the sound of it, you're anything but a muslim but you seem to insist that they are. Hmm. You're one of these ex-muslims, perhaps? Can't be, your ignorance is too obvious...

    Believe whatever you want, but I go by facts, personal experiences and not blind ideology of how I think things should be. We're dealing with the current issues now based on the actions of a man with an idea. My uncle is muslim btw, and it was him that gave me my Qur'an over 21 years ago. Never have been a follower of Islam, but I know plenty who have been, and many of them are extremely intelligent enough to understand what's wrong with Islamic ideology to reject it to the point that they left and then even created support groups to help others understand.

    As you're a practicing Muslim you always seem to come from a point of view of blindly protecting Islam first from any criticism. I don't think the extremists (and their supporters and financial backers) acknowledge you as a true muslim either from their perspective...

    Where I come from if a person can't critically question their beliefs and call a spade a spade, then they're faith is blind and want to pretend any bad aspects don't exist. Why do any of these extremist groups even exist in the first place? What is their end goals? What makes them believe that Islam is the one true religion that everyone in the world must follow?

    If a religion or ideology is having a vastly negative impact on the world, it's going to be widely criticized and questioned. You're going to have to realize that. No amount of apologetics, white-washing, sidestepping, and distracting from the main cause of current issues is going to change that.

    Nope, it's not Islam and they're not Muslims. Them shouting 'allahu akhbar' doesn't make them Muslims.

    Amazing, they seem to think they are. What makes you think you know what Islam is and what makes a true muslim short of asking Mohammed himself? They do their prayers, they have requirements to study the Qur'an, there are too many hadiths, and texts in the Qur'an that support many of the extremist's violent and aggressive actions towards others. The historical facts of Mohammed's life as written by his own follower's show that they're spot on about many of the things they do.

    Many ex-muslims have stated that what we've been seeing is what we've been getting from Islam. Can't change thousands of years of Islamic historical facts nor pretend it didn't happen.

    Gawd, Japan is so far behind its ridiculous. At the job I currently work at I automatically get 5 paid days off (to be scheduled to my choosing) for each YEAR I work. It maxes out at about 3~4 weeks paid time off after 4 years.

    Japanese corporations need to get over the idea that working longer = productivity. They need to understand that only time used productively (instead of pretending to work, employees should be actually working) equals getting work done. When that work is finished on time, then there is time to prepare for other things, or take a break.

    To top that off, my work schedule is 40hrs a week (4day x 10hr) work schedule which gives me 3 days off straight. I had suggested this to my company and the managers took too it quite well and it spread quickly. I had experienced this work schedule before at another company before quite long ago, and loved it. My business is still open 5 business days a week, but the schedules are planned so that there are always enough employees to cover all 5 business days even though each employee has only 4 days they have to work.

    It helps reduce the need for overtime since many employees are obligated to stay and get work done for 10 hours, and is scheduled so that other employees 10hr schedules overlap so when it's time for one to go home, the later scheduled employee's can take over from the previous one and finish any projects etc.

    It also helped reduce the amount of "sick" days employees took (and quitters), because the 3 day "weekend" gave many employees time to rest up very well and get business done so they didn't feel the desire to take a "random" day off.

    I can't remember too well, but I think one country has a federal mandate that the 4day x 10hr schedule is required for all businesses.

    We don't need to nuke NK to end this. Just need some good EMP weapons or w/e that can disable a nuke warhead in flight rendering it harmless.

    Any city in the world? Hmm, I'm gonna go with Kyoto. Just because it's classical historical significance. Not too big, and in my favorite country to visit in the world. Plus I could use some better humidity than the mostly arid city I live in now.
