Pandamonium!

Two pandas that were given as a gift from China to Taiwan have been appearing in public for the first time.

The pandas were given as a gift because the relationship between the two countries has been difficult for many years, but the friendship between the countries has improved lately.

When the pandas' names, Tuan Tuan and Yuan Yuan, are linked together, they mean “reunion” in Chinese.

The pair arrived at Taipei City Zoo in December, but was kept in quarantine for a month.


Tens of thousands of visitors are expected to see them during the Chinese New Year celebrations.

It's only fair because if you're able to join the military and risk your life at the age of eighteen then you should be able to drink a #### here and there. Unless they push the recruitment age up to twenty-one then I'll agree that is what the drinking age should be.  I'm not sure I understand the correlation between drinking and fighting the military. Drinking isn't a right.

    No. It's been 18 and then 19 before and that proved to be a horrible idea. So I do not see it ever going back. Mothers against [hashtagged] Driving or MADD as they are more commonly known is responsible for the raise in age for good reason.
