When ministers in the Swedish government (not to mention Cameron's government) have her as a political idol (and rightly so) I see no problem in giving her the send off she deserves. And while young people came out, certainly there were many who came out who had had to live under her rule, and we still, not just in the UK, live suffering from the legacy of Thatcherism.
But you're right, it is very easy to knock, to rage, to snarl and to satirize, it's oh so simple to knock Mrs. Thatcher.

FFFFFFF ok there was an article in the local newspaper about a new business opening up in eugene and it had some asian man with electrodes all attached to his head as the photo, and i was all excited and was going to link it here cause i thought it was dro's business and it was a big deal because they went public on the london stock exchange...i think it was london at least and they made like 12 million dollars really fast and i was all HOLY CRAP IS DRO RICH NOW?!!?!?! but i didn't link it because i thought, well, it's got a lot of personal information on it about the dude who started the company, and god knows dro's already got half a dozen fatal attraction waiting to happen stalkers on this forum as is so i didn't post it and now i cant find it and so im hoping he'll see this and answer: Hey dro, was that your company on the front of the Register Guard a few days back?

For Stripey pants:
My strange ramen addiction: Teen eats almost nothing but noodles for 13 years

Quote:
It's one thing to get by on ramen packets when you're short on cash — but quite another to eat nothing but instant noodles for more than a decade.

Georgi Readman of the Isle of Wight, U.K., has an extreme aversion to fruits and vegetables and subsists on the salty, preservative-laden snack. She became hooked 13 years ago and now, at age 18, claims to eat nothing but noodle packets, which her mother buys for her by the dozen.

Readman estimates she eats 30 miles of noodles every year, and said even the thought of other foods makes her sick.

“I hate the texture of fruit and vegetables," she said. “I can’t go to my friends' for dinner or go out for meals because I don’t want them to see me freak out if the side salad touches the stuff I eat.

You mean this one? I really doubt it. I'm pretty sure Dro's company has something to do with gene sequencing. Come to think of it, he may have more than one company that he's mentioned, but I think the other one also had something to do with gene sequencing, not EEGs.

Lawlz.

Considering she started eating noodles (and never stopped) at the age of 5, why didn't her parents interfere? Seems like a right age for a parent to properly step in.

at that age, it's almost completely the parents' fault
