There's also the problem of nuclear waste... Spent fuel rods are placed where? Also, what would happen if there was a leak, the radiation and maybe fallout would travel, if close enough, back to Earth and cause a global nuclear winter. On the other hand, who really knows the consequence of nuclear fallout in space entering the earth's atmosphere in large quantities?

Some sites force you to use passwords with only numbers and letters. What is the point? Is there really less security with using every character on the keyboard such as #, $, @ etc.

Hmmm maybe it's to prevent code injections? Then again every input should be validated anyways, so I don't know.

Only Tyra Banks know the actual answer it may also very well be habitual .... Think Tyra looks really cute but not a fan .. so I dont know if she does wear contacts , if she does blinking helps moisten eyes.

Also from here

Um... you wouldn't use that propulsion near Earth.... its for deep space and interstellar use. Even then you'd have to worry about residual radiation debris for any ships that later happened to use the same 3-space flight path in interplanetary flight. "Spent fuel rods" only applies to the "steam propulsion" mode but you'd just reprocess the rods like with the new reactors most of Europe uses. Eventually you end up with some nasty crap you have to jettison but meh.... space is full of radiated crap anyway and you're outside the solar system.

On the vital Tyra Banks blinking issue: she wears glasses, so if you don't see them she has contacts on. Couple that with a slight eye moisture issue and you have your "morse code eyeblinks". Probably makes still photography a bit interesting

Is there anyway to buy stuffs from amazon Japan and ship to the US? Or is there any other seller in Japan that matches the price on amazon Japan and ships international?

I'm interested in this

http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%82%AA%E3...9225156&sr=8-1

But the price is ridiculous here!

Amazon.co.jp definitely DOES ship Internationally. I have personally ordered my Noizi Ito artbooks from there, while I reside in Finland. Amazon is quite expensive place indeed, but it's the best choice you probably have..

Edit : And now that I click your link and see actually what you wanted to order.. I suppose they might consider that as '' Electronics '', and if those aren't sold internationally on some US shop for example, I'm pretty sure you won't get them from anywhere. I've tried several shops when ordering either Electronics, or various Audio CD's, but all would say that they do not ship them internationally.

It does ship books, video, cds and such. But I don't think it ship headphones...

No, it's not expensive at all. Even if the shipping fee for the item I want to buy were 100$, it's still cheaper than the price offered here!

How would you know what it costs elsewhere than in Amazon if you can't find it elsewhere ?

And Amazon in my experience doesn't ship audio CD just FYI <_<.

And anyway.. Why not just buy some headphones from US then ? ;<

Amazon JP: 300 USD
What I found: 560-650 USD!
Ebay: 475 USD (ship from Japan)

The price difference is ridiculous.

And those phones, according to the reviews I've read so far, overpowers everything on the market here...

I find some on kakaku.com but it's all Japanese! Plus, those stores listed there don't seem to ship outside Japan

You ought to read The Daily WTF more often. SQL injection WTFs probably account for half of the stories there.

After rereading my post my usage of "should be validated" seems a bit ambiguous. By saying "should be validated" I mean the inputs should be specifically checked and validated, and not "assume each input is valid by default".

The site you linked is a nice read btw.

Does Fate/stay night have a RPG system or is it just clicking?

Just clicking, with a few choices here and there. Like a choose your adventure book. It has stat pages for the characters, but those exist mostly for flavor and do not directly affect the story.

Which is exactly what I was getting at. Stupid ways of preventing SQL injection attacks run amok on the internet. The Daily WTF is a good way of seeing them directly.

International orders, it only ship usually smaller items. Books, CD, um... that's all I've bought so far

If they will not ship international, you'll have to either get a buddy in Japan or use a deputy service. I have not used any but I can name a few though. Since all I buy from japan are doujinshi and artbooks/periodical magizines.
