      If he was the CEO, and his actions negatively affected the business of the company, of course he could be forced out. That's just how corporations work. Of course, if other people who supported the...

      Freedom of speech =/= freedom from the consequences of that speech. Nobody was stopping this guy from supporting anti-gay causes, but the consequences of that are as we see here. Somewhat...

      In Calgary, Canada, where I'm from, lights are always mounted horizontally, as in this picture.

      There's quite a few places in China that I've been to that have horizontal lights, and from what...

      China doesn't have daylight savings time, so the only reason it bothers me at all is because it changes the time hockey is on at on my Slingbox and the time at which I can call my folks back in...

      I've had a few made here in Shanghai. Never had a problem with fit or quality. Only around 600RMB (~$100), including a tailored dress shirt - though turnaround is usually 5-7 days. I've never done...

      Both of my brothers have some kind of mental illness, so I'm very intimately acquainted with the fact that people with mental illness don't behave the way 'normal', rational people do. This woman...

      First World War yes, Second World War no. The 1931 Statute of Westminster allowed the Canadian government to make its own foreign policy, as the Statute freed Canada from being bound by decisions of...

      How is the evidence supporting Christianity / the Christian god any more concrete than the evidence supporting the claims of Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, or any other major world religion? For example,...

      You need to use a VPN. That's how I was able to watch it.

      Not sure what you're trying to prove with that link.

      So-called 'living fossils' don't contradict the Theory of Evolution. Species living in a stable environment to which they are well adapted...

      I don't see the problem. BMW, Audi, and MB already build cars in China for the Chinese market, and I doubt they're any lower in quality than their European built counterparts, otherwise those...

      I think the Jade looks great, especially in person. It's in good contention to be my next car, as it is well equipped for a reasonably low price (at least by Chinese inflated car price standards).

      Not the US, but whatever - this for license plates seen in the Municipality of Shanghai.

      Not really surprising to see often:

      Fujian
      Shandong

      So? According to recent surveys, nearly 50% of Americans believe in Young Earth Creationism too.:screwy:

      Just because a lot of people believe something to be true doesn't make it true.
