and I would like to note that china in the world today has become the birthplace of new technologies, while it is still going around all over the world asia is the top contributetor to tech. advances, the way I see it is that china, the continent of asia would be ahead of the continent of NA by many years after the rusties, they would have been more advanced to begin with so basically everything would happen in Asia first, such as the redestruction of natural rescouces, it makes scince if you think about it that way.

Sorry that had absolutely nothing to do with what yyou really asked but maybe it can start something different.

Awh, I haven't read Extra's yet.

But if it's part of the trilogy, I'm reading it. >:]]
