This one caught my eye and reminded me of RC's Bear Story. I like that story:

Water Cooler / Re: Danish poll on Greenland sale

Hehehe.. spot on.


Let's do a 50/50 for Manhattan? It is kind of like asking the US to sell us Canada - as Denmark does NOT own Greenland. They are their own autonomous country but part of our "commonwealth". Think England selling Scotland..

I'd like to give it until 50, but realistically it's probably 70 as pensions, savings is not nearly enough as it looks now.

You have to pay an enormous amount of administration fees and other bs. House always wins.

It's insane and goes against everything we learned about financing.

Auch! God thing I managed to deliver 3 humans then.

We have had somewhat mixed experience in the family historically. Primarily with host families that were not really up to the job and left the exchange student on her own etc.

Heard a lot of good stuff about
but would like to have my daughter stay with folks we know or have a good reference about. Preferably in NC or SC.

So anybody know anyone, anywhere or have past experiences with Danish exchange students? Her English is on par and pretty good and 2020 she would be 15 turning 16.

Hehe, toying with Echo/Alexa as well - but only for tuning on TV's, Xbox and the casual weather, play music etc.

> Don't bank online

Whaaat?! Sure you should and all and everything else you do financially. I gotta pay them bills and keep the family fed. LOL.

> - 97% of the apps tested lacked the proper code protection, opening themselves up to reverse engineering or decompiling.

If you only knew how many people and devs we have working across teams to address this.. and we're only the 20th largest financial corp here.

>I trust none of these guys and never have.

Hehehe, we need a 1-1 conversation next month bud. How can you not trust a face like mine? ;)

Right, some politicians argue - in relation to approving this - that it will bring a lot of tourism. I doubt it as it out in a "rural" area.

>-38 Celsius, with windchill -48 C.

Yikes! Eventhough we get the cold here too, I've never experienced -38c here before. Noticed Mivox posted something similar with -40 in Fairbanks.
