  1. I;d go with all of that except << 2. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office. >> My thinking was you'll only get very rich people with self interest in congress otherwise. Then again this is USA where it seems no one gets a pension so maybe I am being too socialist for the USA
  2. If only O spoke like that all the time!
  3. FARK - since before he was elected the birth certificate has been on line! But lets not let the truth get in the way of a good story. By the way, Oboma is a great disappointment
  4. Must read is "Caravans" by James Mitchener, the man predicted everything that's happened - from the mad mullahs to USSR/USA intervention. All this in late 40's! I am sure he wasn't the only one either. My sister and Brother in law went through there in the 60's, wrote a book about kids there. Thought it was pretty amazing.
  5. It's been far longer than 100 years already, the place isn;t much different since the kyber pass days
  6. The gay cowboy A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife. She was a very good-looking woman and determined to keep the ranch, but knew very little about ranching, so she decided to place an ad in the newspaper for a ranch hand. Two cowboys applied for the job. One was a gay Mexican and the other a drunk gringo. She thought long and hard about it, and when no one else applied she decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around the house than the drunk. The gay guy proved to be a hard worker who put in long hours every day and knew a lot about ranching. For weeks, the two of them worked, and the ranch was doing very well. Then one day, the rancher's widow said to the hired hand, "You have done a really good job, and the ranch looks great. You should go into town and kick up your heels." The hired hand readily agreed and went into town one Saturday night. One o'clock came, however, and he didn't return. Two o'clock and no hired hand. Finally the ranch hand returned around two-thirty, and upon entering the room, he found the rancher's widow sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine, waiting for him. She quietly called him over to her."Unbutton my blouse and take it off," she said. Trembling, he did as she directed. "Now take off my boots." He did as she asked, ever so slowly.. "Now take off my socks." He removed each gently and placed them neatly by her boots. "Now take off my skirt." He slowly unbuttoned it, constantly watching her eyes in the fire light. "Now take off my bra.." Again, with trembling hands, he did as he was told and dropped it to the floor. Then she looked at him and said, "If you ever wear my clothes into town again, you're fired."
  7. I stayed at Highland City Hotel last year, turned out it was a bit of a thermae with lots of action, nice rooms. great UN range of good looking cheap (I wasn't partaking, but seemed a short time of $50 or less was viable) Crappy breakfast (AKA USA Cheap Motel Style - really odd breakfast)
  8. Puff the magic dragon, yep that too
  9. Snoopy Vs the Red Baron, "Up in the sky the little blah blah, " great song, next fav was bicycle song, growing up with two older sisters I knew all the beetles etc, prob why I hate them.
  10. Err, i oddly think the brit's had a lot more to do with 'holding the line' in malaysia than the usa. I remember asking once a person who i thought would know, 'why didn't you get involved in vietnam'? They replied they had far more experience than usa in fighting the red peril in s e asia and would never think that the vietnam situation was viable. Nor did they believe in the domino theory. Unlike how they undertook malaysia, which had a much smaller red peril base.
  11. Scott Pilgram Vs the World WTF? What a weird but kinda interesting movie, daughter loved it.
  12. Actually say a lot more, that ignores all economic rationality. FAR better to have a drug that EVERYONE has to take once, than something a small percent maybe have to take.
  13. Yet Big Pharma makes lots of $'s, in FACT think about it this way 1 fraction of 1% of people get disease X - maybe some can or can;t afford the drug whenever they get sick and sick again (penicillin derivatives / antibiotics etc) OR You give everyone a smallpox / polio / name the disease . A LOT more drugs in the last case sold.
  14. There are MANY prophylactic drugs that are only ever given a few times, think measles, TB etc
  15. No - was a very wealthy young large Japanese guy who spent a week training, Friday night they'd have a competition. The "Farangs", Japanese included, would ALWAYS win their bought. Sometimes deservedly, I remember a giant super fit german who seemed to be 7ft 6 tall, all muscles, going against a tiny Thai guy, of course he won. But in this case the Jap, while bigger and (to be honest) fitter than the Thai, was no where as good, the Thai obviously (to me) letting him win. The Thai and Farang crowd was getting pretty pissed as usually, like the German, they Farang are good sports. This Japanese guy was behaving like he was a god and treated the little Thai guy like shit, really boxing cruelly, as the Thai had been told to let him win. The Jap even had his own film crew recording his great Thai Boxing prowess. I was pretty pissed off by the end of 2nd round, so walked over to the Thai corned during the break, and told the Thai I'd give him 500 baht if he knocked out the Jap. 10 seconds into 3rd round with a great kick to the head, Japanese guy sinks slowly down, Thai turns to me, with a big smile brings his knee up into the Japs face. I tipped him an extra 500 baht.
  16. Waddling around tonight, i remembered all the russian gals. Long gone. I remember fixing a thai boxing match at hillary bar as well. Woodstock blue cheese hamburger. The delphi version of nanaplaza,com . Up near ari they had old thai department stores long gone. During the 02 crack down the thai gogo area had sex shows. Oddly involving a girl sticking a raw egg up her mutt and out came a cracked egg.
  17. Santos was more infamous for Delhi Belly his curries inflicted than anything else
  18. Ahhh carlsberg! Lemon tree, venic boys. Boots everywhere. I remember meeting a girl at a street crossing looking down at the highest sole'd thigh high boots i had every seen. Noticing my admiration, she asked me, 'do you like my condo?' asoke corner! Sigh, i had a short time in a fridge box the once. Tight squeeze. In the rain that was a swamp. Remember the big bill board falling down in a big wind?

  20. What happened to the young twins? Johnny and his brother? Boxing at Hillary bar was fun,
