NYC Loses Appeal To Ban Large Sugary Drinks

IrquiM Re: Let them drink! (532 comments)

Do not forget to include that people with a fun, active lifestyle is less sick than others, and cost less because of this. If one guy is unlucky, it's still a win overall.

NYC Loses Appeal To Ban Large Sugary Drinks

IrquiM Re: Let them drink! (532 comments)

I think a lot of them do it because it is expected of them, and they have not considered the alternative. On behalf of Europe I'd like to say: sorry for sending you all our religious nuts! But seriously, we couldn't let them destroy Europe!

Russian RD-180 Embargo Could Boost American Rocket Industry

IrquiM Re: thankX (179 comments)

Problem is that the Soyuz hasn't had any loss of crew since 1971! I'd call that a lot more reliable than the space shuttle. And 5 times more NASA astronauts have died in space-related accidents than Russian/Soviet kosmonauts.

Your 60-Hour Work Week Is Not a Badge of Honor

IrquiM Re: It's a status thing (717 comments)

Minimum pay for a government worker In US is around $10 at the moment I think. A 10 year-old won't even take out the trash for that kind of money here in Norway.... Working 40 hours only tells you how much he is working, not what he earns. Here in Norway, flipping burgere at McDonald's will get you $60,000 a year...

And also Teslas. Just drove past the local shop, and there were 7 of them waiting for their new owner outside. I see more Teslas on my way home than I see Fords now. Norway is going electric!
