Everyone spies on everyone. Why wouldn't you? America just happens to have some of the best technology to serve that purpose. This spying was revealed by a third party though, which is different.

If I was a country, I wouldn't announce to others I had learned about their spying for 2 reasons: I can no longer feed false or useless information through that channel. If they move on from that channel, they will be spying some other way now, a way that I don't know what it is. Merely publicizing the fact we caught them does not change why they were spying on us in the first place, and they will continue.

Secondly, they may also be aware of our own espionage activities, and have kept quiet about them. If we burn them in public, they will burn us too - so there's an element of mutually assured bad press. Because this was revealed by a third party though, that mitigates #2, allowing the people spied on to publicly complain, and #1 is irrelevant by then.

I guess this would be a terrible/wonderful time to post this video:

I like the weather. Cold, but not much. Mostly chilly wind. You can take a stroll and feel a pleasantly cool breeze passing through you as you walk downtown.

I guess i like it even more because i'm not very strong and feel a bit of embarrasment about my complexion, and this weather is the perfect excuse to wear long sleeves and puffy sweaters that make me look a bit not malnourished, and sugar skulls! c:

A girl on this bus has one of the most annoying guffawing laughs I've ever heard and her conversation partners must be comedians with how much she's laughing

It's 5 celsius here right now
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Bit windy, but still pretty warm. Although it can randomly start raining at any given time.
It's 30 celsius right now.

Haha, ya, quite promising. I talked with her for a couple hours last night, and I know we'll both be at a party Saturday night

Yar. Fortunately, she brought it up, so I just flexed some of my ballet knowledge I learned from my ex's sister and said that was pretty cool, basically. Ballet dancers are so fit, in the conventional and connotative sense of the word.
