    EDIT: The U.S. rape conviction rate is actually higher than those of many other first world countries.
    There is also apparently a very high rape rate in Alaska, too.

    What the Hell is going on up there?

    The male-to-female ratio is way too high, and there is a lot of alcoholism and unemployment. It's particularly bad in the Inuit/Yupik people.

    I hate that some Americans are smug elitists who look down on suburbia; get over yourselves.

    But being suburban is itself all about looking down on people. :cheese;

    Hate would be far too strong of a characterization of my feelings, but I am annoyed by how people are far more ideological than practical. They take a position on an issue, then pick and choose facts and half truths (sometimes they don't even bother with facts) to support those positions.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Yes, but they spend almost 200 billion dollars on Green technologies per year, where the US actually spends... well... a lot less... :rolli:

    China is world's #1 country for Wind and Solar power, and by far.

    I wish the US had a nuclear power infrastructure like France.
