OTOH, these small convo made me wonder, why do older people like you guys prefer anime to TV shows? Is it because of :

1. Lolis
2. Kemonomimi
3. Pettanko
4. Torpedo tits

Or is it simply that the broadcasters in your region air garbage over the waves?
The short sarcastic answer is "YES" .... all of the above.

The longer answer is that:
1) I've long studied asian culture, this is just more of it.
2) I like trying to follow the dialog in Japanese
3) I've mostly given up on American television - at this point I watch less than 2 or 3 hours of entertainment tv a week. I spend more time watching documentaries and public broadcast news (BBC, News Hour, Euro Journal, NHK, etc).
4) I *like* the social principles and morals presented in much of anime, the sense of civility, etc. "Doing the right thing"... stuff that "reality tv competitions" is the exact opposite of. Much of American tv promulgates screwing everyone "me me mine", Bread-and-Circuses, etc.
5) And yes, the cute pretty girls and the guys they befuddle rarely fail to amuse.

Spoiler for Photo of Vexx:
That's me in a recent photo, yes. Loli-wife pics are available in my public album (though she's pretty hard to get a good pic of without stalking her).

You said it, brother. Let's face it. American TV completely sucks. Even channels like the History Channel, which I used to love, is now filled with stuff like "Pawn Stars".

Yep, in almost every anime, the characters still have some semblance of manners. I like that.

Hey guys, I need to ask something of you. Can you tell me how to write a resume? I need to know very specifically. A family member is signing up for a job at the local court house but she doesn't know how to. Any idea what to put, write?

Help would be really appreciated, thanks.

If you're in Europe you can probably use the Europass template. It has an online form to make them and everything: http://europass.cedefop.europa.eu/en/home

Even if you aren't in Europe you can probably use the form to make one anyway and then use it as the basis to make your own.

Urgent question:

I will have to catch an absolutely important flight in the next few days. Is there anyway to call the airport to check if my departure will be OK (and i won't suddenly find myself stuck due to unexpected visa/ passport/ ticket issues)

Which airport are you flying from?
Most airport websites should contain flight information for today, and the next few days as well.
If you need to call up via phone, it's probably better to contact the airline directly (for ticketing and flight delays/cancellation issues).

You may also wish to check the DFAT's smartraveller website as well, if you're heading overseas (specifically for visa and passport issues).

Is the recession in Europe that may affect the US economy a macroeconomic event?

Depends on how much Goldman Sachs lend to them, and how much of a bailout they need again.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

You'll have to clarify what you mean by "macroeconomic". Macroeconomics is merely the study of structures, behaviours and processes that affect the whole economy, that is, the kinds of things that add up to a country's GNP, GDP, current-account balance, money supply, and so on. That is in contrast to microeconomics, which studies the specific factors that affect a segment of the economy.

Will the euro zone's debt crisis affect the United States? Not directly, as I'm under the impression that most of the sovereign bonds at risk of default are held by European banks and are largely underwritten by the still-healthy German economy. Also, US exposure to Greece, Spain and Portugal, the economies most at risk of default, is minimal relative to America's exposure to China, for example.

Tellingly, US manufacturing appears to be picking up, albeit in fits and starts, while much of Western Europe is mired in stagnation. American unemployment, while dire, seems to be stabilising, albeit also in fits and starts. Compared to the jobless rates in Spain and Greece, however, the US situation is clearly better. So, if anything, the figures seem to suggest that both macroeconomies are moving in independent trajectories.

However, the world economy as a whole is in a jittery state, and is probably just one or two shocks away from a full-blown crisis of confidence. With China no longer able to prop up global growth the way it did in 2008/09, a crisis is the last thing all of us, not just the US, need.

A crisis is often born out of the liquidity of money. When money becomes too liquid (changes hands too quickly), it creates friction and heats up the market, resulting in inflation. When things get too pricey, people borrow to fund their lifestyles, the cost of borrowing increases (interest rates), people borrow more in fear of interest rates rising more, and buy more in fear things will become more expensive in the future, result in greater inflation, then BOOM! - faster than Louise Valliere can say EXPLOSION! Most people get their clothes ripped off, with the exception of the thrifty and prudent ones.

If I make a guess, he is looking for a few stocks to buy. Just look out for money flow instead.....it WILL affect the rest of the world but there is still money to be made from it.

It is macro. Micro means it only affect themselves. Macro means it affects everyone else.

Red bloodcells don't have a nucleus, so no dna in there.
Same goes for bloodplasma, which should not contain any cells after being seperated.

With theses types of blood transfusion (almost) no genes gets transfered. I don't think anyone does full blood transfusion anymore, right?
