    I have never seen anyone do it in their heads just on the actual soroban, except in the video of course.

    Those clever Japanese, trying to intimidate us with their smart kids. I asked my wife, Japanese, if she could do that too and she gave me that eye that says "get real".

    Yep its the money behind both the R and D's that are screwing us and politicians from both sides encourage and allow it.

    The latest arrest which I am surprised that this happened during BO's reign and control. There must be a falling out of some kind going on.

    In japan they use an abacus called a soroban and eventually can do it in their mind without the physical abacus present. So I guess they are still using them today.

    Maya, Can't remember will become a larger part of our vocabulary as time goes on.

    But on the bright side. You can hide your own Easter eggs this weekend. LOL

    WT my slide rule disappeared somewhere over the years and I wish I still had it. They are geeky but cool and nostalgic as all. We used them in Okinawa and were allowed to use them on tests. We even learned to use the abacus from a local teacher.

    Now that may seem really old but I saw local shop owners using the abacus in Japan in the 90's, not sure if they did that because the customers trusted them over the calculator. When you use the Abacus everyone can follow along.

    I have looked at a few slide rules in the friggin antique stores. aauughh, I am not that old damn it.

    First one I had did not have the am/fm radio option. That was an upgrade a couple years after they came out. I thought I was falling behind in technology then. Boy was I wrong.

    Its what they "add" to it or the "processing" that bothers me. New meaning for "special sauce".

    Cardboard substituted for meat. Drying done by truck exhaust, melenine in the milk, pet foods killing pets are what give me heartburn and maybe even nightmares.

    Nightmares from Chinese food? /s

    I am amazed as to how much food is coming from China now. This Canadian is even concerned but at least he considers food from the USA, for now.

    I do have herbs from China only because I can not get them from elsewhere. It's a concern but if taken it would be for a very limited time. Not daily sustenance.
