Eman is saying that if they would have been 3 male leaders that they would be flirting? Or just having a little fun. I guess men can't enjoy themselves, speak to, have a laugh with a woman else its flirting. Maybe Eman is pushing her way of life onto others.
You right whiners just can't stand that Barack Obama is our President. It drives you all insane.
Why is that?
Obama could club a baby seal and you find an excuse for it, sheep.

act like that with another woman in front if your wife, I dare you.

China's first lunar probe to land on the moon this weekend
By Sophie Brown, CNN
updated 3:32 AM EST, Fri December 13, 2013

China is one of three countries to make a soft-landing on the moon
Hong Kong (CNN)-- China's first lunar rover is expected to land on the moon on Saturday, less than two weeks after it blasted off from Earth, according to Chinese media reports.
The landing will make China one of only three nations -- after the United States and the former Soviet Union -- to "soft-land" on the moon's surface, and the first to do so in more than three decades.
Chang'e-3, the unmanned spacecraft carrying the rover, is due to touch down on a lava plain named Sinus Iridum, or Bay of Rainbows, shortly after 3 p.m. GMT (10 a.m. ET) on December 14, according to the state-run Xinhua news agency.
On landing, Chang'e-3 will release Jade Rabbit (called Yutu in Chinese)-- a six-wheeled lunar rover equipped with at least four cameras and two mechanical legs that can dig up soil samples to a depth of 30 meters. The solar-powered rover will patrol the moon's surface, studying the structure of the lunar crust as well as soil and rocks, for at least three months.

The robot's name was decided by a public online poll and comes from a Chinese myth about the pet white rabbit of a goddess, Chang'e, who is said to live on the moon.

Weighing 140 kilograms, the slow-moving rover carries an optical telescope for astronomical observations and a powerful ultraviolet camera that will monitor how solar activity affects the various layers -- troposphere, stratosphere and ionosphere -- that make up the Earth's atmosphere, China's information technology ministry said in a statement.
The Jade Rabbit is also equipped with radioisotope heater units, allowing it to function during the cold lunar nights when temperatures plunge as low as -180°C (-292°F).
China has rapidly built up its space program since it first sent an astronaut into space in 2003. In 2012, the country conducted 18 space launches, according to the Pentagon.
The Chang'e-3 mission constitutes the second phase of China's moon exploration program, which includes orbiting, landing and returning to Earth.
In 2010, China captured images of the landing site for the 2013 probe, the Bay of Rainbows, which is considered to be one of the most picturesque parts of the moon.
Within the next decade, China expects to open a permanent space station in the Earth's orbit.

But scientists in the United States have expressed concern that the Chang'e-3 mission could skew the results of a NASA study of the moon's dust environment. The spacecraft's descent is likely to create a noticeable plume on the moon's surface that could interfere with research already being carried out by NASA's Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE), Jeff Plescia, chair of NASA's Lunar Exploration Analysis Group told news site, Space.com in November.
The Chang'e-3 spacecraft blasted off from a Long March 3B rocket in China's Sichuan province on December 2, and reached the moon's orbit at 100 kilometers (about 60 miles) from its surface less than five days later.
On Tuesday, it descended into an elliptical orbit with its lowest point just 15 kilometers off the lunar surface, a spokesperson for China's Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense told Xinhua.
The Soviet Union's Luna 24 probe was the last space mission to land on the moon in August, 1976 -- four years after the United States launched the manned Apollo 17 mission.

Before I get ready to leave.

A Man went the doctors office to ask for a Triple Dose of Viagra. The doctor told him that he couldn't allow him a triple dose.

'Why not?' asked the man.'Because it's not safe,' replied the doctor.

'But I need it really bad,' said the man.

'Well, why do you need it so badly?' asked the doctor.

The man said,'My girlfriend is coming into town on Friday, my ex-wife will be here on Saturday and my wife is coming home on Sunday. Can't you see? I've got to have a triple dose.

The doctor finally relented saying,'All right, I'll give it to you, but you have to come in Monday morning so that I can check you, to see if there are any side effects.'

On Monday afternoon the man dragged himself into the doctor's office...his right arm in a sling.

The doctor asked,'Good gawd! What happened to you?'

The man said,'No one showed up'.

I agree, he should not be able to buy his way out with high priced lawyers and get a trip to a cushy treatment facility. He killed four people. Like I said, I am not sure what you do with a 16 year old kid in this kind of situation. No doubt if it was a poor latino kid, he would be in jail doing hard time. Our justice system is far from perfect or even fair.
I don't know either, I'll have to look it up and see if there was a jury trial. Most vehicular manslaughter cases are at least 5 years.

childish....

The late-night sessions forced by Senate Republicans this week as payback to Democrats for changing the chamber's filibuster rules is pretty juvenile, one GOP member admitted. But it's all Harry Reid's fault.

“I think it resembles fourth graders playing in a sandbox, and I’ll give the majority leader, Harry Reid, 99 percent of the responsibility for it,” Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) said, as quoted by the New York Times.“He’s going to have ‘The End of the Senate’ written on his tombstone."

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) first led the GOP's revenge on Wednesday when the minority party announced its intention to use up all of its debate time on the nomination of Nina Pillard to the D.C. Court of Appeals, a move that simply delayed the inevitable. Pillard was confirmed in the wee hours of Thursday morning.

Friday morning marked the end of the second consecutive late-night session in the Senate.

McConnell used the same language as Alexander back in July when Democrats were flirting with the idea of employing the so-called "nuclear option" and changing the filibuster rules, something that didn't come to fruition until late last month.

"No majority leader wants written on his tombstone that he presided over the end of the Senate," McConnell said. "Well, if this majority leader caves to the fringes and lets this happen, I'm afraid that's exactly what they'll write."
