SuperNinjaToad: It never cease to amaze me the alarmist journalism about OMG China did this or that and the subsequent followup by followers about how the US had already done it either better or earlier etc or how inferior the Chinese is etc therefore no biggie as if it is some sort of competition.The truth is China couldn't care less and the only people obsessed with China's progress in any field are fear mongering journalists and the average uneducated hillbilly who reads too much into things. Personally I don't give a crap if China owns this or the first to do that etc... or any country for that matter.If the first person to go to Mars is a Chinese or Somalian or freakin Somoan than I say more power to him! and I will cheer him all the way there. I'm not going to withold my excitement for the human race just because he ain't an American.
pinguwin: Mister Buttons: Argentina might as well try to lay claim.Actually, Argentina already has laid a claim. A triangle from Tierra del Fuego to the South Georgia Islands to the south pole. If you take a boat to the Antarctic peninsula from Argentina, they look at your passport to ID you if you're a foreigner but they don't stamp your passport as, according to their claim, you're not leaving Argentine territory
Claude Ballse: SpdrJay: Kurt Russell is not Chinese....Pfffft! Could have fooled me!
whither_apophis: So they're making a "Big Trouble meets The Thing" movie? That'd be cool.
