You will not get burns from unlit gasoline, a bad reaction perhaps, yes. Alkalis and acids will inflict chemical burns, gasoline won't.

No. No and NO. That's the way to tell PEOPLE that what they are doing needs to stop, be thought about or changed. NO VIOLENCE. We don't hit anyone else in society, why hit the weakest, youngest? It's pathetic to hit children. Absolutely.

Orangutans are, as all species, a fantastic animal. Shame we're destroying their habitats and their populations.

JHFC. Take the whole thing off them, now. As mentioned above, at least the aluminium buckets were in storage.

The British, as a people, have over centuries of social-political evolution come to live as they do. That's exactly what the radical-Islamists want them to forfeit, wrapped in fear and hatred. The British aren't going to be fooled into abandoning what it is they are.

And who for a moment believes that radioactive isotopes haven't been flowing into the ocean from the 3 Level 7 catastrophes anyway? Of course the contamination of the marine environment has been ongoing. As for the lie that the structure withstood the earthquake, that it was the tsunami that truly exposed man's folly... how is it 400 tons of ground water gets into the structures every day. Permeation? What a shower of lies, cover-up, deception and insanity.

Of course you need to learn and understand the language of the culture you are in, otherwise you miss so much, the humor, the stories, the added weave to the human experience of the tapestry around you. If you're here, learn, embrace and enjoy.

The US brought the world economy to the very brink, we stared deep into the abyss, THEN they essentially nationalzied their banking system and THEy say, 'paly by the rules'? Get out of here!

Yeah, we're sure they don't. God forbid they have some safe-food competition and have to stop ripping everyone off.

This drunken idiot wasn't stepping on a guy's lawn, he was in his garden and Japanese gardens are enclosed and well inside a person's comfort zone. Keep them ON BASE.

Went away at the end of March for 10 days, half the price of a 4 day excursion during GW. It's really awful how everyone gets ripped^off by the GW greed.

The real crux of the matter is we --mature, intelligent adults- do NOT expect a 14-year-old girl to have the judgement and decision-making skills that an adult should have. The message that some on this board believe in / follow, that it’s okay to have sexual relations with a child as long as he or she is compliant — is absolutely wrong.
