[quote]Sadarm and other brilliant weapons use tantalum, an exotic heavy metal for which little data is available. But it appears to be highly toxic, especially when vaporised.

re: Teen accidentally kills himself while taking selfie with dad's gun - Volvagia
Nope. You don't. But you didn't have to take the time to express the disdain you did either. To do one but not the other makes you a cowardly pussy at best. Come on, if you are going to that vocal about your conclusion, share with the class your half baked, bullshite, semantics based reas...

re: how should a company compensate an hourly employee for out of state training - Volvagia
I am going through a similar thing in the near future. Company will pay 8 hours per day at event, plus time spent traveling, plus all expenses paid up front by them. Its a typically a huge growth opportunity, a tangible sign that that company is investing in you, and basically a working vaca...

re: America's oil industry is 'dead in the water' - Volvagia
[quote]Sure it is, what does that have to do with it? [/quote] The whole crying about domestic vs foreign oil is the biggest load of crap in the current climate. It's just oil. Supply and demand names a price, and some reserves aren't profitable at that price. I think you would be surprised...

re: 47% of Americans couldn't scrape $400 for an emergency - Volvagia
That's the kind of stuff I'm talking about. And I should have elaborated that I was mostly speaking of American cultural mores. If you want to speak globally it probably started well over a thousand years. But in America the story was a country of self starters and opportunity. Not tha...

re: 47% of Americans couldn't scrape $400 for an emergency - Volvagia
The war for public opinion on it is starting already. In the past 5 years I have seen a progressive (pun intended) ramp up against 401k The phrase "failed experiment" is becoming rampant. Two points keep emerging: 1). It's so difficult and expensive to self manage, and mistakes can...
