Re: Yellow Vest protest. Could it spread?

I can't see it either - if only because the conditions in France are so different from most other countries. The yellow vest protest is a result of a hike in fuel prices due to a new carbon tax introduced by President Macron. An emphasis on green policies was part of his election platform so why the...

Re: Bombs in the USA

Guess who has recently been in Europe spewing his far right hate speech? None other than Steve Bannon.

Re: Pastor to Parents....Punch Your Gay Son!

Shall we start the countdown clock now for the time when this bigot follows many of his pastor predecessors in being found with a hooker or a boy in a toilet stall?

Re: George Bush Sr. Dead @ 94

Your post reminds me of Bette Davis's reaction when she heard Joan Crawford had died. She said, "My mother taught me never to speak bad of the dead - only good. Joan Crawford is dead. Good!" An apt comment given that "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" was on TCM just last week. Th...

Re: Thinnest Condoms - Are They Available in Thailand?

For those hard to find items, could I just set up a Lazada account and have the stuff sent to my hotel within 24~48 hours reliably ? A suggestion. If you know your itinerary and have a confirmed hotel booking, you can consider ordering more than 48 hours ahead for delivery to your next hotel. You c...

I have ordered only two lots of items from Lazada. I don't recall 24-hour delivery in Bangkok but maybe there is a box to tick for that. But they certainly arrived within 48 hours. If I recall correctly, they give you an estimate of delivery.

Re: Speakeasy at the Muse Hotel

We were seated in the back and did not notice any cigar smoke. Since neither of us smoke, we did not ask if they have them for sale. I forgot to include the website in my earlier post -

Murder, Corporate Greed, Rats and Jokers in 1980s Hong Kong

As a footnote to the article about Inspector John MacLennan in the Gay World forum, Hong Kong had a very colourful history in the 1980s. One of its most infamous scandals and criminal cases involved what had started life as a small pest control company run by a Singaporean Chinese, George Tan. Tan h...
