Which subway system is the largest: New York, Beijing or Shanghai?

I’m not the biggest fan of social media, I’m still blogging so I must be old school.

I have a personal Facebook account with like 800 friends which kind of sucks because people post sooooo much rubbish (like crappy videos that they report) that I never get to see what anyone is really up to and I’m not on it very much.  I have had a few work Facebook profiles but they seem to get shut down, I’ve had 2 or 3 accounts with the 5,000 limit of friends get shut down which is a pain.

A little while back I setup a whole new bank of social media stuff (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr) and I haven’t posted anything naughty on there and mostly it is just reposting stuff that I write here.  I still really don’t get the whole Twitter thing.  I did sign up to some famous peoples Twitter and I couldn’t believe the amount of crap that was on there – I couldn’t read 1% of it so I don’t follow

I removed the cheap dvd player with a non functioning remote control.

Yes, this is Z.

Dear Committee Members


Thank you for the opportunity to provide this submission on the question of whether Australia should

We hot footed it from the large city department store when I saw a shirt I liked the look of and the price tag showed $319. We returned to our much cheaper usual city department store. Why don't we use smaller shops? We do at times, if one can be found that does not have loud music blasting our ears and staff so cheerful and bouncy that they seem to have inbuilt springs.

Fortunately there was a sale in our favourite department store. Is there never not one? It took a while but eventually I bought a shirt I liked. You see, there is a lot to check.

First, nearly half the shirts can be discounted because they are tapered, or tailored as it is now described. While I think they look terrific on the right person, sadly where the shirt tapers in the middle, I go in the other direction. Do my bosoms look too big in this dear? Not a thing a man really wants.

Then there is the pocket. An older person must have a pocket for reading glasses. No shirt ...
