It's actually only recently that I realised there's no Clippy anymore and wondered where it'd gone. Not that I miss it .. not at all.. just always turned it off, so I guess it took a while to notice it was totally gone.

Speaking of which .. it doesn't accept MSWord or MSOffice? You need to type "Microsoft", which *IS* accepted as such even though it isn't a product really.

Is Mao's little red book really the best SELLING book in Chinese history though? I'm pretty sure that people were simply given it during Mao's reign and didn't have to buy it.

I would assume you were joking; except that Islam is not an adjective. Israel is predominantly Jewish. Russia (a large portion of which is in Asia) is predominantly Orthodox Christian. Other Orthodox countries in Asia include Georgia, Armenia, and Cyprus. The Philippines are predominantly Catholic though there are evangelical and other Christian minorities, and Mindanao and other southern islands are mostly Muslim. There are sizable Christian minorities in China, India, Japan, South Korea, Kazakhstan, Iran, Syria, Jordan, and Israel among other places.

oh and East Timor is also Catholic. Which is likely the main reason they declared independence from Muslim Indonesia. Singapore is a very diverse place with lots of different religions.

you might want to reread on Fluoride. It seems to not help at all against tooth decay, on the contrary, and it is very poisonous and can cause all kinds of health problems.

Fluoride in the water to help teeth is a giant scam. Glad most of the world (including OECD countries no longer partake). I have a tertiary science degree, so you, QuizWol, take your smug attitude where the sun don't shine (and no that's not a flat earth reference).
