    It's cheaper because It's only 50% butter...

    I can believe it's not butter!TM

    By the way, who the hell these days eats veins blocking butter

    It's healthier than margarine, and tastes much better. So, me.

    And ancient Japanese pottery has been found in South America suggesting the Japanese were first to the "new world"

    Got a source for that? Already debunked claimants for "1st to the new world": Chinese, Phoenicians, ancient West Africans, Polynesians...

    How dare this girl be unhappy about not getting paid for work. Talk about full of herself. Who expects to get paid for working on 2016?

    If you do work with the expectation of not getting paid, you can't blame others for not paying you.

    If those cows could talk, I doubt they'd be telling you about how they've found a new purpose.

    The real issue is whether the show glorifies violence more than the book, which has been raised as a problem by readers. George Martin is an anti-war pragmatist.

    There you have your "dating simulator" video games at work.

    They took "game over" too literally.

    A fantasy war epic with violence? What were they thinking?

    Exact the same goes with Japanese Government.

    The U.S. government expressly recognizes dual nationality. How do I know? Because when I got dual nationality, that's what the consulate told me and that's what their printed material said. The only condition was a ban service in a foreign military or government.

    In contrast, the Japanese government requires that you sign a statement that you have renounced any other nationalities. It's true that Japan's ability to enforce this is limited. Even so, this is very different from the situation in the U.S. One country expressly permits it; the other country expressly forbids it.

    US government does not recognize dual nationality when a dual national enters a country using a foreign passport.

    They recognize dual nationality but they require that you show your U.S. passport. You can show as many passports as you like, as long as one of them is U.S. This doesn't preempt dual nationality.

    By the way US government does not fully allow dual nationality.

    From wiki:

    Based on the U.S. Department of State regulation on dual citizenship (7 FAM 1162), the Supreme Court of the United States has stated that dual citizenship is a "status long recognized in the law" and that "a person may have and exercise rights of nationality in two countries and be subject to the responsibilities of both. The mere fact he asserts the rights of one citizenship does not, without more, mean that he renounces the other", Kawakita v. U.S., 343 U.S. 717 (1952). In Schneider v. Rusk, 377 U.S. 163 (1964), the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a naturalized U.S. citizen has the right to return to his native country and to resume his former citizenship, and also to remain a U.S. citizen even if he never returns to the United States.

    U.S. nationals are not allowed to serve in the military or government of another country, but the U.S. most certainly allows dual nationality.

    The ethical question in Renho's case: Assuming that she knew she was a dual national, is it ethical to misrepresent your nationality when you think voters are unfairly biased against your second nationality?

    Whether or not the bias legit, I think it is unethical to misrepresent your nationality (if that's what actually happened).

    If the population is large enough, for example 1,300,000,000 or 127,000,000, the population size is irrelevant to statistical standard error, and only the sample size is relevant to it.

    Randomizing the sampling is at least as relevant, but you're correct that you don't need huge sample sizes to represent huge populations.

    Or how about Japan? 120 MILLION plus and only 1,000?

    What sample size would be acceptable? Please show your math.

    Just let them rattle. It hurts nothing other than some people's egos. Let's not start a war over ego.

    Nuclear capability + long-range delivery system = serious threat

    This isn't just about ego or rattling.

    Essentially, North Korea is holding the South Korean capital hostage. Solution: Temporarily relocate the government functions of Seoul and evacuate the city, then impose a complete embargo until a cabal of Un-derlings takes out the lil' Un. Not easy or pretty, but effective.

    I don't think there is one professional musician in music today that doesn't regard them one of (if not the) greatest band of all time.

    Silvafan was referring to their musicianship. There are different kinds of great. Technically, their musicianship was not great. Harrison got better as he went along, but much of his early guitar work is clumsy, as attested to by their early sound engineer and a casual listening of Harrison's playing. McCartney became an accomplished bassist, but his early playing wasn't anything special. Starr is a fine drummer, but it wouldn't take long to find his equal in today's drumming world. Lennon was a decent rhythm player but lacking in the lead area.

    I'm a huuuge Beatles fan, but an impartial evaluation would find them to be only decent musicians. Where they shine is their songwriting and their sound--the vocal blend and the studio production. They were in the right place at the right time and they had enough experience and charm to stand out, but they went on produce some wonderful art.
