Best buds? Apple must be fuming: Samsung's wireless earphones boast 11 hours of listening on a single charge
Re: Would someone explain
Turning normally involves slowing down so it takes longer to cover the same distance. If I am reading the article correctly, you could go through a green light turning right and have it be red by the time you've finished the turn so you've gone through a red light, even if it wasn't red when you started your turn. Doesn't help that in some US states it's legal to drive through red lights as long as you're turning right, pedestrians have the right of way though as this situation often applies to zebra crossings/crosswalks (why yes I have almost been killed by drivers in this exact scenario who decided to just plough on regardless).
You don't seem to be so afraid of the NK and Chinese nukes as you are of other countries. The leaders of NK have got to top the list of crazies who might pull the trigger. If Iran got them, I suspect they'd use a cats paw to denoate it somewhere rather than being seen to lauch a rocket with a nuke on it and risk WW3.

Re: "remember BMW used slave labour in the 1940's?"
This is a very confused post. It starts off with one point of view and then seems to double back on itself mid-way through. Your arguement seems to be because you can't do everything you should do nothing. Rather, pick your battles and focus your efforts on what you can change while keeping your eye on what you could move onto next.
Actually, they are. People born in the Northern Ireland have rights under the GFA that people born in the rest of the UK do not automatically get i.e. the right to an Irish passport.
edit:Because the post I responded to was edited this doesn't make sense anymore. Orginally, it was about rights not being determined by brithright/location.

In fairness, that wouldn't be hard. From all the documentaries I've seen about the Space Shuttle it seems to have been a pig with lipstick/brick hybrid designed by committee. Which is not to say it wasn't used to do great things, the Hubble repair springs to mind. It was just designed to do everything, which is to say nothing.
Re: This should be good
Given the number of stories there has been over the years on el reg of people shooting down drones in the US it doesn't strike me as being a terribly reliable way to deliver stuff, unless of course the drones are allowed to shoot back. If the drones get the initals H.K. ...

Re: "increasingly violent Chinese security forces"
The Chinese Communist Party would happily do a Tibet and send in the army to capture it if it wouldn't risk a US conter-strike (and fighitng all the US sold weaponary). It doesn't care about sweet talking them back into the fold. Sometimes it seems like they'd prefer the force option.

Re: Have I got this right?
If you're hard of hearing it can help you to follow what is being said (and for all the people commenting, why are you listening to an audio book then, sometimes it is the only format available (see David Eddings books currently) and sometimes narrators like Stephen Fry can elevate the source material through their narration (see the stupendous expensive Harry Potter audio books, available from your library on line (at least in the UK)). It is also useful for learning other languages.
That process could also apply to people with autism. Having difficultly detecting and understanding emotion in others doesn't make you a psychopath:
a person with a psychopathic personality, which manifests as amoral and antisocial behavior, lack of ability to love or establish meaningful personal relationships, extreme egocentricity, failure to learn from experience, etc.
Or even a sociopath:
a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.
We all know what you meant but given how the how the law is being and abused for things like the hositle enviroment were law abiding people are being illegally hounded out of the country, best to nip such misunderstandings in the bud.

Re: "I saved the Christmas!!!"
Okay, this is John the Baptist but:
'John answered, "Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same."'
Lets not forget the overturning of the market stalls in the temple and healing people for no money either. Rich men find it difficult to enter the kingdom of heaven. The efforts of those who have few resources matter more than those who have plenty to spare. He doesn't say take from Peter to give to Paul but he does say that's what Peter needs to do if he wants to go to heaven.
