Actually, I've been in my current relationship for almost three years, and we very rarely if ever have arguments. I guess it depends on how an argument is defined (ie. raising your voice at one another?). So I think arguments are avoidable in a relationship, but you have to be careful that it is not...Jump to post
I was cycling into my laboratory in Oxford this morning, and as I was cycling down the road, I passed Bill Clinton, who was going for a stroll! I almost ran over one of his security entourage, but it was his own fault for walking in the road <img src="/discussions/graphics/spin.gif" ALT="Smile...Jump to post
The point is this: a mass m is equivalent to an energy mc², hence Einstein's equation E=mc². If you take a load of carbon (coal) and burn it, you would find that the total mass of all the combustion products would be very slightly less than the total mass of the carbon, plus the oxygen that went int...Jump to post
Pacificjourney I don't think it's really about the 'outraged white man' as you put it. I think affirmative action in the college system is not beneficial overall to minorities. Sure, someone who might not have got in otherwise, but does so based on their race, might have a benefit. But overall, I th...Jump to post

There was a thread a while back speculating on what happened to Indonesian Airlines. I checked their website at the time, which seemed to have diappeared. But now their website is back again, and advertising flights to Dubai! So, is Indonesian Airlines still flying or not? Also, are these airlines i...Jump to post
The reason why 'ch' isn't used it because it represents a different sound. In fact, in Taiwan, a different system of transliteration is used, and Qingdao would be written something like Chingtao. In the case of the sylable 'qing'/'ching' there is no problem, and for the english speaker, 'ch' may see...Jump to post
Sorry, I don't have any more information as it is not for me, but one of my friends. €170 is rather expensive. I thought of going via Cologne on Germanwings. This would work out a lot cheaper, the only problem is it doesn't work out with the schedules. (Incidentally, it would have been perfect in th...Jump to post
I don't use a pump (not an insulin one anyway <img src="/discussions/graphics/winkani.gif" ALT="Wink/being sarcastic">) but the reality is we use machines for almost everything one way or another, directly or indirectly. What I mean is that, you are dependent on insulin to remain alive. But th...Jump to post
I don't think this is a matter of right or wrong, or the way it should or shouldn't be. Simply, if two people want to, and can, then the question is answered - YES! I think there are too many social rules which people tend to blindly follow and live by (religion, for one). Whilst it may be an advant...Jump to post
Let me get this straight, Sonic. You said: <b>I however agree drug </b>trafficking and<b> using should be capital crime, but I am not so sure about armed robbery or rape.</b> So, drug using (Darwinism in action), which essentially affects only the user, should be punishable by death, but rape and ar...Jump to post

I think they should have dropped the name JAT, since it has no meaning any more. They should have gone back to their original name (and possibly also logo): AEROPUT <img src="http://www.timetableimages.com/i-a/aeroput1.jpg"> (Although, my knowledge of Spanish is quite poor, but doesn't this mean som...Jump to post
I'm looking for timetables from some Indonesian airlines, and will pay $10 per airline if anyone can supply any. These can be obtained from airline offices in Jakarta city, or at the airport from the ticketing desk - I know, because I picked some up last year there! Anyway, I'm looking particularly ...Jump to post
Last summer I walked across the border from Switzerland to France, twice both ways, and didn't show my passport, and was not stopped by anyone. Just like walking down any road really, except shop prices are about half on the french side of the border.
I also have to agree with ADG on this one. I find Yyz717's response to ADG very illogical. The initial question was '<b>What Would Make You Move To The USA?</b>', so suggesting '<b>people should try moving to the US and living there before they rule it out</b>' doesn't make sense. If they had alread...Jump to post
It's a shame that innocent people are affected by being banned from a restaurant, just because they are from a country who's government is being protested against. It's a bit like the large-scale US boycotting of French and German goods (eg. wine), because of European opposition to the war. And it's...Jump to post

This issue has nothing to do with Taiwan. In fact, this is one reason why China should not get involved. The US asking China to intervene in <acronym title="Spirit Airlines (USA)">NK</acronym> is like China asking the US to intervene in Taiwan (favourably towards the Chinese). Sure China has a stake...Jump to post
Charles, Please explain what you think China is (or should be) responsible for? This fracas is between the US and <acronym title="Spirit Airlines (USA)">NK</acronym>. It has nothing to do with China.

What I find most interesting is the vast difference between how much the USA is willing to spend on war, and on aid. For example, the war in Afghanistan cost the US many billions of dollars, and since, aid has been approximately $300 million. It might be cheaper in the longrun if the US puts more ai...Jump to post
