    The environmental impact and loss of habitat in the three gorges due to the construction of this dam was a travesty and tragedy, imo. I don't even like thinking about the dam.

    The human tragedy of collapse just adds to the overall catastrophe.

    No drainage in the cities? Surely they know better than that.

    Money money money.

    Outer airbags for cars. Wow. Kinda James Bondy.

    The sounds of the 'dragon' sound a great deal like other recordings from around the world. A quail? that's not even a half-assed excuse.

    The fish 'running out of water' was an interesting phrase. They were leaping out.

    Vampire leeches. Eeewww.

    I had forgotten many of the specifics regarding concerns surrounding the building of this dam. This is a sad reminder.

    Well, when governments don't listen to experts, this sort of thing happens.

    It's cause for concern due to our leader not wanting to listen to experts, believing he knows better than them, and extolling the leadership of China himself.

    Oy! We're next.

    Coinkidink: I traded a few messages from a fellow chess team member yesterday, he's a pilot in Gibraltar...he pointed out his online name, Dragan, means 'Happy' not 'dragon'

    I can get a translation from my daughter if it is really important ... I'll send it to her to get her reaction.

    My daughter said she would respond back when she wakes up ... that's my baby, she got the narcolepsy from her father and her desire to sleep from her mother

    Yikes. She wants to sleep a lot but can't control when. Kinda harsh. I hope she doesn't have the kind where you fall asleep when startled.

    lol, no...I think it is relatively mild actually...of course, when she was 1st diagnosed her mother immediately ran out and got her a 'helper' dog, filled out for her all the 'invalid' documentation ... she's had problems in school and such... I would always tease my daughter by asking her if 'Tobias' had saved her life by dragging her out of the street that day... She would just shake her head in acknowledgement that her mother was cracked, not to mention suffering from Munchausen by proxy.

    She's been ignoring me since yesterday...I know why but I'm letting things slide right now for her benefit ... she's suffering from a serious case of ennui and I'm going to let her get past it.
