Yes, well I meant my 'Old Man' when I wrote 'The Man'.
He's the action lover, not me. Strangely, I assumed that was obvious.

Still playing! Just might be an excellent excuse to go up to Bangkok for a couple of days. The Man gives any movie which isn't 85% action a huge thumbs down. What a philistine!

The Temptations: minus the best ...

Dennis Edwards, lead singer of The Temptations has died at age 74.
My my my .. that girl's voice! The high notes soaring upwards gives 'sublime' new meaning.

Re: Iran Protests: Comparison with Tiananmen Square

No need to write a book mate. I was referring to the massacre itself (not too many folks getting run over by a tank stop to think much about causal analysis) and hoping such murder would not be repeated in Iran.

Re: Iran: Diary of a Journey

Just read this article in the NYT: By THOMAS ERDBRINK January 1, 2018 TEHRAN — Ignoring pleas for calm from President Hassan Rouhani, Iranian protesters took to the streets in several cities for the fifth day on Monday as pent-up economic and political frustrations boiled over in the broadest displa...

Re: Iran: Diary of a Journey

My assumption is that corruption is now much reduced. “Reduced? It's now much worse,” he exclaims! “Look at all these houses and apartments. The smallest at about 80 sq. meters costs a minimum of US$500,000. Most are several times larger. Who do you think owns them?” He answers his own question. “M...

And even worse! The guy in the red shirt (that's another count) is bound to be sporting the hairy-est butt crack in SE Asia if his legs are any evidence.

Re: Finally - Butt don't hold your breath

Who cares about smoking being banned?
It's banning booze that's much more worrying. A beach without a "Leo yai" is a beach no longer.
And butts? As long as they're nothing to do with fags I'm happy to watch butts go by ... preferably ~ "definitely" ~ Thai butts naturally.

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

Well, the provided URL address includes the word "humour" in it. Also I've often posted ~ at least a dozen times ~ that Borowitz's New Yorker stuff is, of course, satire . . . but not all the time, as I've been assuming that most folks get that by now. Also, if one opens up the URL he'll n...
