"Contested waters"? Pfft, they moved the oil rig within 120 miles from Vietnam's coast, and the UN law is that 200 nautical miles from the coast is the country's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), this is a clear violation and infringement of Vietnam's sovereignty, I guess we will see an impossible, Vietnam allying with USA.

Posted in: How to deal with a student sleeping in class See in context

There isn't any attendance taking at my university, all you are supposed to do is prove that you have learnt and are able to do the work expected (IT degree), one course I didn't attend to the lecture all semester but still managed to pass ((database designs)) I absolutely hated my professors voice, everyone in the lecture became hypnotized into sleeping when that dude spoke and imagine for 3 hours constantly talking in his hypnotic monotone). Don't know why you would even need to take attendance at university, you are there to learn and gain skills and if you feel that time is better spent outside of lectures, then so be it. I feel this sort of system removes the power of decision-making from the students.

Actually Marcelito, flight attendant jobs are quite dangerous, due to exposure to cosmic radiation, they have higher chance of getting cancer and various other illnesses, in fact, it is quite often that these flight attendants get some sort of illnesses and that's why they tend to get paid more than the average worker.

Molenir, it cannot be theft as the person gets something from it(free health-care, education, roads) and also you can consider working in the country as rent, if people don't want to pay taxes, they may leave and go live in Somalia if they do not wish to pay taxes. You talk of responsibility yet you cannot understand this? Society cannot flourish without a government, all must contribute for the greater good so to speak and you cannot achieve it if everything is simply left to its own devices, like an anarchic state.

Patrick Smash, if you hate your wife alot and want to divorce her, go ahead, from what I understand from what you have said, she would loathe to be left with the children so you don't have to worry about her willingly taking custody of the kids or perhaps I am wrong but its just something you can think about. Hope I helped in some way ^^.

How do you tell who's a tourist in Australia >>, I can't lol, but those that look touristy are all well-behaved, befriended many of them. I think that most people are just overly-sensitive.
