When will Suvarnabhumi prepare for Global Warming?

An article in today's Guardian makes clear the problems facing air travellers as a result of global warming. Some relate to heat. The hotter the weather, the less dense the air and the more problems for aircraft taking off. When temperatures soared above 48C at Phoenix last summer, 50 flights had to...

Re: Iceland Seeking to Ban Male Circumcision

Interesting, thanks! I don't think I have ever met an uncircumcised Muslim.

Re: Iceland Seeking to Ban Male Circumcision

No doubt the reason for the Jewish practice of circumcision is the alleged commandment of God to Abraham. By why would God make such a commandment? Obviously we have no idea, but I can see no reason unless it was to separate the Jews from the many other tribes which existed around that time. In whic...

Re: Great Olympic Skating: Shame on True Visions

He has a beautiful face. I wonder, though, if his lack of height will make it more difficult for him as his career progresses. He is 12 cms shorter than Hanyu, yet 2 kgs heavier. Heck, what do I know? Just seeing all those amazingly cute Asian skaters is a joy.

Re: Malaysian Newspaper Publishes “How to Spot Gays” Checklist

I have other reasons for visiting Kuala Lumpur and so will continue to do so. The same is true of Singapore where the notorious British Colonial anti-gay Section 377A remains in its Penal Code thus making homosexual behaviour illegal - although the present PM has said the government will no longer u...

Re: Great Olympic Skating: Shame on True Visions

Hanyu still acts as though he were a teenager - sometimes as a rather gay teenager! There's a short video of the three skaters where Hanyu cries on Hernandez' shoulder! I prefer his skating over both Chen and Uno partly because it appears more effortlessly fluid and his body is better proportioned. ...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

Charlton Heston! Now there’s a name which hopefully is also being forgotten. I know I have written this before, but it’s worth repeating. He may have been in demand as a movie actor. When he tried his hand in a real live theatre, the critics murdered him! Reviewing a reading he gave with his wife at...

Re: Iceland Seeking to Ban Male Circumcision

I totally fail to understand why two religions make circumcision virtually mandatory, Jewish boys having to undergo the ritual around 8 days old. If God had decided that part of our anatomy was not necessary, presumably He would not have boys endowed with foreskins at birth. So how Jewish leaders ca...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

Perhaps it would be interesting to investigate where the NRA gets its millions of dollars. Much is explained in this article - http://thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/business-a-lobbying/354317-the-nras-power-by-the-numbers 2015 Total revenues: $336.7 million. One year membership $40.
