The different life

I do not know whether you read a story or not. At one time or another, an America old woman and a Chinese old woman met in the heaven, they both poor, but the America old woman live in the beautiful house for thirty years, after that every year she should afford the debt. The other way around, the Chinese old woman scrape up the money for thirty years, at the end, she has money to buy a new house, but she is not live in the house but pass away. It is the different culture points lead to the different way.

  At one time or another, I liked to play games, but all of my family are opposed to me, owing to that I often use money to buy flyff penya, it not only a waste of money, but also the game is illusory, it is not reality. On account of that they all opposed to me, do at that time I do not play flyff and buy flyff money.


  I think I am a person hedonism, I think I am lucky; when I am born I live in the good family, so I do not worry about my life. At the same time, one of my colleagues tells me that when she sees my hand, she feels that I am a lucky person; I will happiness in the future. She is right, I think. A lot of people think that if you do not meet trouble, you will not grow up, perhaps they are right, but in my side, some things that trouble do happen till now. Furthermore, I play the flyff is very lucky. My account is some one I do not know who gives to me, on account of that he has some reason that he must leave the world of the flyff, so he gives it to me, he says that he believes in the fate, also I am. He says that I am a person he looks for. When he gives the account to me, I find there is a lot of flyff gold in the account; he is a master and has great equipment, I think if I sell the account out, I can earn money, but at the end, I do not do that thing. Now that the man believes me, I will take advantage of it and the flyff penya.

  I think I am a lucky star, since I have this account, the level is coming into the next level, at the same time, and I earn a lot of cheap penya.

China’s artificial sun reaches fusion temperature: 100 million degrees

Surprising Science
  • The EAST reactor was able to heat hydrogen to temperatures exceeding 100 million degrees Celsius.
  • Nuclear fusion could someday provide the planet with a virtually limitless supply of clean energy.
  • Still, scientists have many other obstacles to pass before fusion technology becomes a viable energy source.
