Pictures of Xenu's armada?

"Sandstorms inflict damage of about $540 million per year, and losses of crops and forests due to acid rain amount to about $730 million per year. More serious are the $6 billion costs of the "green wall" of trees being built to shield Beijing against sand and dust, and the $7 billion per year of losses created by pest species. We enter the zone of impressive numbers when we consider the onetime cost of the 1996 floods ($27 billion, but still cheaper than the 1998 floods), the annual direct losses due to desertification ($42 billion), and the annual losses due to water and air pollution ($54 billion). The combination of the latter two items alone costs China the equivalent of 14% of its GDP each year." - Jared Diamond, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed

Translation= 'the officials leaked the information to the press before they were supposed to and are afraid their bosses would be pissed."

Do you really want to know?

1. Stupidity should be more painful!
2. Don't believe everything you think!
3. Your post is as worthless as you!

Read that hydrazine (the chemical that is so dangerous) burns up in the temperatures reached by reentry since the tanks will not survive reentry intact either. they are certainly doing it to protect themselves, not people picking up scrap metal
