@patty cake champion

I still use Wikipedia for my research and homework. When it comes to computer science related topics they are among the most reliable and most thorough.

Posted in: No. of suicides surpasses 30,000 for 14th year in a row in 2011 See in context

Japanese people are too serious and too stressed out. They feel like it is their duty to fulfill some requirement set to them by society or the company. The reality is, life is just a ride, there is no need to be afraid or worry, ever! Japan would be a better place and Japanese people would be less suicidal if they tried pot or dropped acid once in their life. It would sure make Japanese people less motivated to satisfy and fulfill society's expectation burning out themselves in the process. When you think of yourself in context of the group you are willing to sacrifice yourself, but no one should do that. People wouldn't be killing themselves if it weren't for the way Japan's society worked.

With its low sales in Japan (74k 2nd week and 43k 3rd week), a lot of people are expecting a price cut, just like with the 3DS. At ~ $190 I might get one.

You could start an all-suicide channel in Japan.

Posted in: GM likely to recapture global auto sales lead from Toyota See in context

So I wanted to buy a CTS-V, it's $64,515 in the US. In Japan it is 8,990,000円!! Will someone do something about this? I can afford a CTS-V when it is $64,515 but at 8,990,000円 ($117,022) I can't! When will Japan start playing fair?

How can people fit such large gadgets into their pockets? I have an iPhone and I think it is huge, apparently to others it is not big enough.

Whaling is a crime. The whaling criminals will stop at nothing, they'd kill people if it helped them achieve their inhumane goals.

What of forgive and forget do people fail to understand? Revenge and hate only generates more revenge and hate. It's a vicious cycle that doesn't end until we all learn to forgive and forget.

Good for Sony, they should focus on their Japan Display Inc. joint venture and avoid Samsung. Samsung rips off its customers.

I'm thinking of quitting Facebook. With this feature it is even more of privacy risk than before. Posts I made long ago are now easily accessible.

I know but the fact remains.


Eurofighter? Please. Also, you got your fighters mixed. The F22 is the Raptor, the F35 is called Lightning II

As long as you are using the most recent release, it doesn't matter which browser you are using anymore. There were a time when IE was behind but now they are all more or less equal.

Posted in: UANI applauds Hitachi for ending its business in Iran See in context


Actions speak louder than words. The US (the good guys) as a result of its actions millions died. It used nuclear weapons, the only country to ever do so. It used chemical and biological weapons (agent orange), it installed dictators (the Shah and Saddam) and still support many dictatorships around the world. The CIA are the biggest drug smugglers and dealers, hence why the War on Drugs never ends. The whole mess in Iran right now is because of the US's and UK's actions that go back to the end of WWII. I'm an American citizen and I realize that my government has been morally bankrupt for at least the last 100 years (some will claim since inception) which gives us no right to police the world.
