Fatty Kim must be pouting.  That's too bad for the North Korean people, because when he pouts he takes it out on the political prisoners in his Glorious People's Rape Dungeon

Oh yes, Pakistan.  The country that harbored bin laden and his Taliban pals.  The country that Republicans got pissed off about when Obama authorized drone strikes in sanctuaries that probably existed with the full knowledge of the Pakistan government.

You know a while back, I was wondering if the big surprise we were waiting on was that North Korea had an ally or two. -We all know Un is crazy, but he went to school in Europe, so he can't be *that* stupid.

I mean, think about it... If North Korea starts something and gets wiped off the map, who's next? So why wouldn't Pakistan, Iran or whoever want to join in with them?

Don't be surprised if you see an announcement about some sort of alliance (with someone) in the coming weeks.

Yes, yes, I know there are a million reasons why they *wouldn't* join together, but it would certainly make an interesting "surprise".

The same as us. You don't have to give ALL the people a higher education, just the ones with potential. The rest can go about their merry little lives sans astrophysics and quantum mechanics. The harder part is manufacturing the components to the tight tolerances and with specific alloys. But if you have the right connections you can get that stuff from China.

I routinely beat computers at Tic-Tac-Toe.  That the kid couldn't beat WOPR even once was a bit of Hollywood silliness.  I'll admit though it's hard to win a game when the director insists that it always end in a big screen flash to simulate a nuclear bomb going off.

Computers always take the best move available based on an initial strategy.  You exploit that.  I don't win every single game I play, but enough to where WOPR would have not learned the lesson that all Global Thermonuclear War is futile.

Enlighten us, then.  Marina del Rey  looks easy enough to pronounce, so I would guess I pronounce it wrong (is it "REE" v. "RAY"?).  I don't do it on purpose, I just don't know.    We have a lake in NC spelled "Kerr" and pronounced "Car" .  Nobody gets it right the first time, and I cringe a little when i hear "CURR", but I don't get angry.  I do let them know about the local pronunciation.

What does get me is when people pronounce things wrong on purpose.  Republican phone banks make sure of this by phonetically spelling Iraq  EYE-RACK.  Its childish.

It doesn't take a village to make a nuke. It only takes a dozen extremely smart people to make it. In a country of over 100 million I'm sure there are more than a few Einsteins even if 99.99% are complete illiterates.

As an FYI...in reality though a relatively large portion of the Pakistani population is actually quite educate and 'smart.

Lets call the whole thing off

Until he and the news anchors he's emulating start using local pronunciation of American place names, it's all a bunch of B.S.  Mostly, I just want them to pronounce "Marina del Rey" like the locals do.

Enlighten us, then.  Marina del Rey  looks easy enough to pronounce, so I would guess I pronounce it wrong (is it "REE" v. "RAY"?).  I don't do it on purpose, I just don't know.    We have a lake in NC spelled "Kerr" and pronounced "Car" .  Nobody gets it right the first time, and I cringe a little when i hear "CURR", but I don't get angry.  I do let them know about the local pronunciation.

What does get me is when people pronounce things wrong on purpose.  Republican phone banks make sure of this by phonetically spelling Iraq  EYE-RACK.  Its childish.


It's WASHington not WARSHington. You don't WARSH a car or clothes, you WASH them. Where is the farking R?

/Hate that half the people from the damn state can't say it right.

That article was disappointingly brief.
