  1. George Carlin narrowed it down to Three Commandments 

    1. Thou shalt always be honest and faithful, especially to the provider of thy nookie.
    2. Thou shalt try real hard not to kill anyone - unless, of course, they pray to a different, invisible man in the sky.
    3. Thou shalt keep thy religion to thyself.

     

    Carlin gets my vote

  2. I am bringing it up calling you. You initially stated in your post installed SKYPE for daughters mother in 2001 before you edited it 

    If SKYPE has no relevance to online Thai learning why did you bring it up first then.

    <<If you picked up a chick from a Sabbath or Motörhead gig you could be sure she would gargle before swallowing. >>

     

    Oh - how I want to copy that, but not sure where. Maybe time to change my tag line

    I do like to keep it classy 


  4. To the best of my knowledge there were no “Nana Plaza Inernet Joints” per ce, most the the composed emails came from cafes in the old Ambassador Hotel Complex,  I was shacked up with a girl who was the manager of one such places. She got a commission on the emails she wrote and part of commission of mails written by other girls, she was making a fortune.

    She blew me out and moved to USA with a rich American, HaHa, 20 years later we still send each other 1-2 emails per year, and she says she wishes she had stayed in Thailand with me.

    Who knows TTM, maybe your wife’s emails were written by my ex.

    Think of it this way, if I fart on one side of a room, even a large one, my wife can smell it, 6 seconds later, on the other side of the room.

    Does “a large one” refer to size of Room or Fart?


  6. As good as Eddie Van Halen was, I wouldn’t place him at the same table as Stevie Vai or the 2 Joes Satriani and Bonomassa.

    He was in the wrong band, a West Coast hair band who were banded together with the likes of Motley Crue, Poison, Extreme etc, bands who wrote 3 Minute Pop Songs and had Mainstream Girls at their concerts when concerts, made much like the MCC and Garrick Club, were the last bastions of maledom. If you picked up a chick from a Sabbath or Motörhead gig you could be sure she would gargle before swallowing. 
    Would Vai / Satriani / Bonomassa have recorded Jump or appeared on a Michael Jackson single? No way ... he was a Pop Star and not a Rock Icon.

    ...and before we see posts saying The English Premier League the most watched sports league on the planet had Black Lives Matter emblazoned on shirts.

     

    Then they realized their mistake and removed it.  It is now up to individual clubs how they support the movement.
     

    I would like to see them “Taking the Knee” when there are actually fans in the stadium, it maybe accepted down South by the Southern Softies, but not a chance Oop Norf where they would be booed of the pitch.

    I'll see your smart arsery and raise it one smart arse.

    "I think you mean what is the axis title."  

    2 graphs

    I think you mean, 'what are the axes titles'  

    there y'go, fixed :)

     

    thank you

     

    It wasn’t about axis / axes, even though I maintain it is singular, just the same axis repeated. What you did say was what are the numbers, not what do the numbers relate to or  what is the axis title 


  9. What Cav didn’t post from the Trump Nobel Article

    Has Mr Trump been nominated before?

    Yes. 

    And for the second time, he has Mr Tybring-Gjedde to thank. In 2018, the right-wing politician was one of two Norwegian lawmakers to nominate Mr Trump for the same prize, then for his efforts to bring reconciliation to North and South Korea. 

    Mr Trump did not take home the prize that year, but Mr Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the conservative Progress Party, insists the US president meets the criteria this time.


  10. Season starts on Saturday and It feels sorta weird with COVID and all.

     What do I hope? United win the League, What do I expect? Top Four Finish.

    Can Liverpool repeat last season, Second season is a lot more difficult than the first. City have done nothing in the closed season, I expect Chelsea to be a bunch of overpriced misfits and as for Arsenal,  well Arsenal fans can look forward to the new season with some belief for the first time in a while.

    For those in Thailand, probably only me, there is a good deal with True Vision, don’t get all there Crap but EPL only 2900 Baht plus 50 Baht per month for the full season every game, $120 is good value, but not as good as Vietnam, 1,000,000 VND / $50 per year.


  11. Whilst I understand and respect the US having the Second Amendment, things have changed since 1791 and flintlock pistols.

     What gets me is, owning an Assault Rifle or Rocket propelled Grenade is legal in some/most States, the ownership of a switchblade or Stiletto blade is banned in others including states that allow Assault Rifles or RPG’s.

    Could an American please explain because it too much for me to compute. 


  12. I remember about 20 years ago why a mates Thai Wife took her “Driving Through Cones in a Car Park” Test.

    She must have flattened every cone but at end of the test slipped the examiner a couple of thousand Baht. My mate and I were pissing ourselves laughing and he accused her of bribing the examiner. She replied”No, No I not bribe, just pay for cones I killed” 


  13. Police are forced to close Curry Mile AGAIN as hundreds ignore local lockdown in Manchester to attend mass celebration of Afghan Independence Day

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8647175/Police-forced-close-Curry-Mile-hundreds-ignore-local-lockdown-Manchester.html
     

    Always the same old people the BAME fraction of society. And they claim Racism because COVID kills a proportionally higher amount of BAME people and wonder why Greater Manchester is under renewed lockdown.

    Some may call me a hypocrite being an expat myself, but I don’t try to impose my vacations, religion or believes on my host country, neither do I pay total disregard to laws and spread infectious diseases.  
     

    Glad I got out when I did

    PS Curry Mile in Rusholme is a rite of passage to any young Manc.


  14. The TV remote Control, such an innocuous device that can lead to many fights, arguments (and behind the hand chuckles) 

    For me it is simple, Pick up remote from table, Selects Channel, Replaces remote on table, as I said simple. The wife? Oh no. Picks up remote, receives a phone call, wanders around the apartment or out to balcony remote in hand, realizes remote is useless to carry and puts down, cannot remember where she left it, changes channel, goes to fridge and puts the remote down in the fridge.

    Then I get, what have I done with it, where did I hide it? Once it is ascertained I have not hid it it is then my fault for not watchIng what she does with it, JUST LEAVE IT ON THE TABLE.

    Jeez give me strength!
