Did you know: that in Japan a lot of the stores look the same, but some of them are actually hentai galleries.

Did you know Welsh people actually speak Welsh? I sort of assumed it was a conspiracy to keep Welsh-speakers in a living doing the translating for signs in the name of 'equality'. (Well, Scottish Gaelic is supposed to be an equal language but I never heard any bugger speaking that although, given the rather broad accents in my extended family, that might be my fault.)

It is a real, everyday language and I did feel a bit bad for not knowing how to say hello in it when I was wombling. As it turns out, smiling and nodding while being ridiculously out of breath works well.

In a related sidenote, the Brecon Beacons are bloody hilly. On the way up to the path to Corn Du I had to stop a few times and then on the way down I couldn't stop for fear of falling face first down the slope :idiot:

Did you know that some bloke in the Highways Department of some Welsh Council, needing the Welsh for some road sign, emailed the Welsh-language department and copied the reply he got back. The Welsh sign says "I am out of the office just now, back on Monday"? :fsm_rock:

I don't think we will be going near Moreton. However if you get the chance to pop to the Gower for the day we could meet up. It's a bit of a trip that though isn't it?

We'd love to see you and the Gower isn't too far; the roads are good. Give us details.

Did you know that in the state of New Jersey there is no clear-cut answer as to when a child is considered emancipated under the child support laws? When a child turns 18, although they are considered of the majority age in New Jersey, it does not automatically mean that child support payments are terminated. Factors that are considered is whether or not the child is able to be independent and is no longer under the sphere of influence of their parents. If they are attending full-time college then they are most likely not going to be considered emancipated, but on the other hand, if they are not attending college, but are still living at home they still may not be considered emancipated.

While I understand that the reason for this is in order to ensure that every child is provided sufficient support, it seems a bit willy-nilly to have laws that say emancipation will be determined by the court on a case-by-case basis. Doesn't that mean that it is likely that certain individuals may be discriminated against because of biases held by the court judge? Wouldn't that violate the right of each person to be recognized as equal to each other?

What if the custodial parent of the child decides to not "allow" the child to become independent and instead has them live at home without obtaining full-time employment?

That the ammount of paper work is directly related to the ammount of bullshit spewed by sales/marketing/management and inversely proportional to there productivity.
