How adequate! Your philosophy is based on a work of fiction... No wonder you are so ready to believe the crudest propaganda...And I suppose the US governments follow that principle too, that's why they are so keen on destroying anything...

What a stupid comment. A pithy quote from literature occurs to me and you turn that into "Your philosophy is based on a work of fiction"? You claim to be a master of logical thinking, yet have no shame in making the most absurdly illogical extrapolations.

If that's so, what made you quote a sentence from a work of fiction? On its own, without any qualifications. You must have found it to be so profound that it deserved being quoted... :D

So you are saying we should stick to believing the non fiction the Chairman of TSMC says... Got it !! ;)

Win Semiconductors (the largest high frequency fab in the world for GaAs and InP) intimated similar plans to render the fabs into a pile of rubble in case of an invasion, They are super careful not to leak any technology to China.
I'd rather be diving or flying alas for now I am on terra firma.

Too many people live in a world of fantasy. Maybe they should disconnect their TV sets and take up gardening, or yoga, or stamp collecting...

Yes, I'm sure Portugal's pleasant climate is conducive to growing a wide variety of beautiful flora.
