Sorry but if you can't tell The Onion from the truth then you likely won't understand the truth either.

I actually agree with the exact order you guys picked in the poll. China > NK > US > Japan > SK
To those of you saying "China is too smart to attack", you should realize that "biggest threat" does NOT mean most likely to attack. Although that is PART of the factor, there are many other factors you should consider when assessing a threat.

@Harry_Gatto If it's such a rehash I'm curious as to what intrigued you to click on this page after reading the rather explicit title.

@Burning Bush Are you really implying that Ukraine would wish to provoke a full-fledged war with Russia by pretending these vehicles came from russia? REALLY?
They just want the russian trash out of their country.

People complain about how slimy and lazy police are in japan, but that's nothing compared to the thug-like gang that is the US police force. All they want is power over people and if you refuse to give it to them, they go off just like this officer did. Absolutely reprehensible that they still have NOT arrested this blatant murderer. Even if brown literally jumped IN his car and started strangling the officer, even THEN it couldn't explain those bullet wounds... Nothing can... Arrest the trash.

dont you guys think that 2 out of 3 riders being on their death bed is punishment enough? I know if that happened to my friends I would be more affected by the accident itself than any jailtime you'd give me.

@sf2k If you think it's just for "some reason" you are seriously over-estimating yourself.

The funny thing is, despite ALLLL the guns in america,the amount of times a gun has ever actually successfully been used in self-defense by a civilian is so low that it is considered by anyone with a background in statistics to be "statistically insignificant". "Gun accidents" alone, which isn't much, even kill more than civilians reportedly save in self-defence.
The amount of violent gun crimes on the other hand? Almost too high to keep track of.

ITT: Feminists complaining that being called a "girl" is offensive. You know, there are actual, real female issues out there you could be tackling instead with your time instead of this translation. Last I checked appearing youthful was an ideal in Japanese society anyway.

@minello7, "quick" to impose sanctions? In my opinion it wasn't quick enough. This should have been done way back when their rebel involvement first became clear, BEFORE russia shot down the malaysian airliner. Sure they get to keep their jobs for the moment if you don't impose sanctions, but what is a job worth to anyone if you're bombed dead? Russia must be stopped, at all costs.

The reason they said "some" is because even two healthy 20 year olds can sometimes give birth to someone with defects, not because his age matters with a healthy young woman. You can never eliminated the possibility of defects. That being said yeah if the wife has gotten older too I'd agree it's really not a good idea to go seek supplies from grandpa.

@Frungy/Cleo "Women who are 35 and under have a built-in mechanism in their eggs that repairs damaged DNA introduced by the sperm. But that safety net starts to break down after the age of 35. That's why some of the risks of genetic disorders only matter when both the mum and dad are older.
In otherwords, the age of the father is nearly irrelevant.

In many Countries it is common practice for older siblings to raise their younger siblings, whether due to overworked parents or parental deaths. It's really natural imo, no matter how you look at it.
