  1. I'm not sure how you can go from getting screwed by BUPA to going home for free health insurance and say one act makes the other perfectly justifiable. The irony is going back for free health care after actively trying to get out of paying any U.K. taxes for 30 years (and occasionally bragging about it, like when he worked in Spain) because he has a disdain for the U.K. welfare state. I hope he sues BUPA and wins in the U.K. but that doesn't change the irony of the decision to go back to the U.K. for the free health care. Like I said, I'd do the same if I were in his shoes.
  2. Mekong, sorry to hear about your illness. If you apply as much effort in dealing with it as you did going against your ex-wife, you have an excellent chance of living a long life. If you want to present to BUPA a list of potential customers, either living in LOS or plan on moving there in the near future, that will not consider using BUPA because of how they treat their long term customers, sign me up on the list. Finally, I hope that you don't take it the wrong way but there is a certain irony that you are going back to the U.K. after almost 30 years, not wanting to pay U.K. taxes bec
  3. I guess that he will finally find out what exactly happened between Claudine Longet and "Spider" Sabich. I had forgot that he was good friends of Robert and Ethel Kennedy and was asked by Bobby to be a Kennedy delegate from California, even though he was a registered Republican. He and Claudine were in the hospital room, to comfort Ethel where Bobby was taken after being shot.
  4. His father said he doesn't even take aspirin. More in line with my medical beliefs. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1338992-dont-question-missouri-qb-james-franklins-toughness-for-refusing-medicine
  5. From theblaze.com GOVERNMENT WOMAN ALLEGEDLY PREVENTED FROM BOARDING FLIGHT BECAUSE TSA DIDN’T LIKE HER ‘ATTITUDE’ Posted on September 9, 2012 at 8:21pm by Erica Ritz Print »Email » Comments (25) An angry airline passenger claims the Transportation Security Administration prevented her from boarding her flight not because she was a security risk, but in retaliation for her “attitude.†She explained in the description of an accompanying YouTube video: This was inside the terminal at the Houston airport. I was
  6. Except that, in the U.S., the doctor, nurse and hospital would be looking at lawsuits totaling several million dollars. I'd try not to be operated in Sweden around the breakfast, lunch and dinner hours.
  7. We had a numbers cruncher as mayor of Kansas City, Mark Funkhouser. Before being Mayor, he was auditor for the city for 16 years and very much like and respected. He didn't try to make coalitions with other city council members and was often on the minority side of council voting. He did not try to develop any rapport with business people or political organizations. He did hire his wife as a consultant and the city had to settle a law suit brought by her assistant, who was black and claimed that the Mayor's wife had used belittling black phrases in describing her assistant. The council o
  8. But not in the ending. If you are talking about the Dr. Death type of euthanasia, where family member participate in the celebration of the person's life and then death, the pain would be a lot less. Acting on his own, leaving a suicide note, I assume that Ridley Scott (and others)knew nothing of his brother's plan and suffered a lot of pain because of it.
  9. A pretty painful way to die (jumping off a bridge) and there is always a small chance that you might survive (probably not much of a concern to someone terminally ill already). In an interview with someone that tried and survived, he said the hardest part, over all the internal injuries, broken bones and broken back, was the look on his mother's face when she saw him. I don't think I would spring killing myself unexpectedly on family and friends.
  10. My dad's best friend dated her for 5 years, until he died at age 91 eight years ago.
  11. This should make Cav happy; the GOP and Mitt Romney are endorsing Paul's call for an audit of the Federal Reserve http://www.npr.org/blogs/itsallpolitics/2012/08/21/159594780/romney-and-gop-strike-deal-with-ron-paul-loyalists-before-convention?ft=1&f=139544303
  12. The last poll done for the Missouri Senate race was Monday night. Akins led 44% to 43%. With little money to campaign with, we will see if that lead lasts.
  13. It is in the current weekly, "keyboard warriors." I would prefer (and believe that KS would also prefer) not to provide a link but in paragraph 4, he uses the term "defunct" in referring to NP and extolling the good old days. Later on, he bashes most thai forums as they exist today, and I am sure that would include thai360, which is NP with a different name. If he feels that strongly about the state of thai forums, he could have posted his concerns here, as he has said he usually looks at thai360 about once a week. As his site isn't a forum (and according to him never will be), you will
  14. Maybe I was a bit vague on why I posted the above. Stickman called NP "defunct" and said some uncomplimentary things about NP/Thai360. I guess KS was right about Stickman holding some sort of grudge against either him or the site. I do know that Stickman is representative of the highest form of human evolution, so I do believe him and his reasons for not participating in thai forums anymore. My only question to him would be; Why do you still live here?
