    Honestly, if all of China sunk into the earth I wouldn`t miss it, Korea and most of south-east Asia.

    I have been all over the world, but I REFUSE to go to Asia (besides Japan). You couldn`t even pay me.

    Believe me, Medic, I can`t leave this place fast enough.

    And, as you obviously have poor reading and comprehension skills, I`ll point out to you again that I was being sar-cas-tic. You know that weird thing where you use a neering or cutting remark but only say it to get a rise out of people who will believe anything they read/hear?

    Yeah, that.

    I could careless if you were being sarcastic or not. You think it`s funny to be "sar-cas-tic" when more than 10,000+ people could be dead or dying right now?

    I was not trying to be cutting to be with my comments, but your comment pissed me off. I just don`t think this is a joking matter. I know what it is like to recover people who were buried in a building collapse most of which we just recovered parts of people...

    I am sorry for the cutting remarks...

    davymid, the Dow went up 130 points today. Its going to go back up. Right now its starting to stabilize, give it a few months and it will be going up. Except the housing market, give that a few years. 2012 maybe?

    ^^ Iroj, is that a pic of you? If so, you look like a c*ckmunching slut selling your well-worn crotch down a back alleyway, wearing shoes 6 sizes too big, the spectacular enormity of which are only surpassed by your enormous masculine chin. You also appear to be wearing your grandma`s curtain for a dress.

    HaHa, please don`t take offense, couldn`t you tell I was using sarcasm there on the internets?

    Douche.

    I never said it was funny. Sarcasm isn`t meant to be funny unless you use it in the ironic sense, which I was not.

    Please, David, VALIDATE ME!!

    "Douche" That reminds me! I need to take care of my well-worn crotch before I go walking the alleyway later...the crabs haven`t been fed all day!

    ^^Iroj

    When I accused you of being a slut with a well-worn crotch, I was being sarcastic! Didn`t you spot the sarcasm? You fail at internet sarcasm!

    Listen sweetheart, 10,000+ people died from an earthquake in China, and then YOU made the comment along the lines of "F*ck `Em, let the earth swallow them up, I couldn`t give a f*ck, because they all eat cats and dogs".

    That`s not sarcstic, or funny, or ironic. It`s being a heartless b*tch, and you deserve all the flaming you get.

    If you go to the USGS.gov website and check out the world map page, it shows the earthquake location via google.

    Its really crazy to see it, it was right on the base of a huge mountain. I wonder how long its been building up...its a 7.9 with very strong aftershocks all day.

    This flaming is giving me all the attention my poor, underdeveloped psyche needs from years of missed hugs.

    Iroj is not a woman. Analysis of the sintax used in his posts is clear. Data suggests that the gentleman posing as this girl is actually 48 years of age, bald, with a rather large pot belly. Further, it is predicted with a high degree of accuracy that this man lives at home with his over-bearing mother, rarely leaves the house, and tends to wet the bed. That he plays with dolls is a given. Caution is suggested in dealing with a character of this sort, since there is a 99.76% chance that he has not had sex since 1967. Typically with these subjects "self love" behaviors have reached extreme levels, usually involving elaborate fantasies, play dough, wooden puppets and carpet freshener. In these cases such behaviors will last for as long as 10 to 12 hours a day - largely due to problems of impotence. Do not make prolonged eye contact with these individuals - lest you be confused for a wooden puppet. If cornered by such a creature, distract him with a ham sandwich and run

    Validation obviously stops far short of describing your dependance on the opinion of others. That`s cool - psychologists need work too.

    I`m curious to know how you got the gal in the picture to pose for the pic.... On second thought... nevermind, I don`t want to know - Sometimes it`s better not to have the visual in your head, you know?
