    If the window unit is sealed properly

    In the Philippines, I switched from window units to split units about 5 years ago.  However all the old window units I bought in the Philippines had a mechanical 'fresh air/recirculation" lever that opened or closed a half inch diameter hole to the outside.

    The user could allow some fresh air in using that lever.  Not sure if it made much difference but I can see how outside air would get in that way.

    If they find a pretty girl to chat with and perhaps even more on video chat, some guys could be happy forever!  

    I knew one of those.  He lived in the Philippines for 5 years and got too frustrated with the girls, the people and the country in general.  So he moved back to the USA where he could keep driving a truck for a living and video chatting with the girls.  He was much happier and did that right up until he died.  Nothing wrong with that at all.

    I think you should MEET HER!!

    I agree with your opinion but it is still just an opinion.  Everyone has their own.  As a younger man I believed that a man does not start to really get to know a women until he beds her.  As an older man I believe they lie there too. (Or should that be in the puns thread? :hystery: )

    the cases against Mayko was initiated by a Filipino businesswoman

    Hard to understand this English.  "Cases (plural) was initiated".  If all the cases against him were initiated by one woman then the whole thing smells bad to me.  It is interesting to see responses from people who automatically assume the guy did something.  It could just as easily be he did nothing.  If he did nothing when the "Filipino businesswoman" was arguing with him and telling him what to do then that would piss off a lot of "businesswomen" and the smart ones know how to stick a knife in.

    Just another way of looking at it.

    I don't think it is related to rain

    Well I thought it was related to rain so I checked with Dr Google and it seems there is some relation to rain:




    Rain helps make the environment more wet, which in turn makes termite survival more likely since there is plenty of water available.

    After a soaking spring or fall rain, thousands of winged reproductives may swarm from the colony seeking to mate and start new colonies. However, the rain is not the trigger for swarming so much as warm temperatures, humidity and the age of the colony itself.

  6. We used to get those once or twice a year on Biliran Island.  They swarm around for a day or so then they must find a place to nest as all their wings fall off and they dissappear,  until next time.  I remember running around with cans of Baygon trying to kill them buggers.  They  came in through any crack they could find, even under the door.

    Good luck with them.  Seems to me they are just a nuisance.

    Are the people in China who are testing people for the Corona Virus called "Chinese Checkers"?

    If they are, then do they make the folks who test positive wear this sticker?

    Also they should stop using "social distancing", the accurate term is "physical distancing".


    Social distancing, also called “physical distancing,” means keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home. To practice social or physical distancing:

    Western Opinions matter not

    Western Opinions only matter when backed with cash.  Examples:  Western Opinon says lockdown and social distance and here is money to help you do that.  YES they like.  Western Opinion says smoking is bad for you and here is money to help you make your cities Non Smoking.  YES they like that.  Western Opinion says a lot of human trafficking goes on and here is money to help combat that.  YES they like that.  .   .   Need I go on?

    So in essence I am agreeing with you that Filipinos are only interested in what cash is in it for them.  They laugh at the "Western Opinions" but put on a straight face while the money is being handed out.
