Hmm, for some reason I always thought you were Chinese.... Oh well, guess I was wrong.
That sounds painful, I wear my soft lenses about 16 hours a day. What I was talking about though was the fact that you don't dispose of RGP lenses every 2-4 weeks like the soft contacts I have...
Aha, very nice!
Some places don't have all this mystical space you speak of, but I guess it still isn't as bad as The EU or HK...

Whats the diffence between hard and soft contact lenses?

Power lines are underground only within urban areas. Between cities it just goes over ground, much cheaper to construct and easier to fix. However within urban areas there's not enough space to run them overground, plus running them underground should be both safer and harder to steal from.

The thing about underground power lines is that they only ever go down when someone accidentally hits them during construction, or when one of the step-down stations blows a fuse. Both cases don't happen that often, and we (at least in the Netherlands) very rarely have to deal with power outage.

In our area Enbridge (our natural gas distributor) has a bunch of signs telling people to call before they dig, lest they hit a gas line >_>

 

They even mark patches of grass with yellow paint so that people would know where not to dig at all.

The Euro solution is not to have them go down at all. It's very rare that a power line that can't be easily accessed(within a day) is knocked down. Flooding is a much more likely reason for extended power outages.

Soft lenses are flexible and more breathable, I believe, while hard lenses don't bend or flex at all.

Math -- the most tree unfriendly thing to study.

I just realized that I filled approximately 150 pages of A4 paper with math exercises just for the exam I have tomorrow, making for a total of about 400 pages for this subject alone.

One advantage is that my handwriting made huge steps forward since the start of this academic year.

Ahh, the joys of cleaning a keyboard. Lotta biscuit crumbs in there.

Keeno's actually got a few other songs that have only been released in random compilations etc: http://vocadb.net/Artist/Details/288 
MikitoP is also currently teasing a collaboration with Keeno for his new album releasing in April which I am very much looking forward to. 
This spells awesome! You have my thanks, I'll try to gather the albums if at all possible.
At Dusk is also one of my more played albums smily_headphones1.gif

Don't you have those solar panels?

In many urban areas. Not suburban areas.

That's what should be done. Recently some people punctured one of the main aqueducts or something in downtown Montreal and it was flooding like crazy in some areas. You can probably find some videos on YouTube if you search McGill flood or something.

Think about it: a power line goes down in NA, and you simply send in a crew with an crane truck to go fix it.

A power line somehow goes down in Europe...  I can imagine traffic being slowed down for a few weeks.

Oh right
