  1. Notice how he also always talks about being banned? That's Trollwork. I'm through supporting their hobby. Adieu.
  2. To each his own but there are far too many reasonably sane and stable people in the world for me to put up with endless bullshit for a handful of paranoid delusionals.
  3. None of the men can be identified but the woman's name is yelled from the rooftop. Nice system.
  4. My only concern would be the amount of Vitamin A per serving. They way the kids who do our yardwork for us eat rice (mounds of it at each sitting), I'd worry about overdose.
  5. I am mostly allowed to look. My wife will even discuss with me the particular beauty (or lack thereof) of women I see. But you cray-cray if you think am touchin' that stuff.
  6. For aggregating and shipping I use ShippingCart. They lost a bag of tea at the height of the Covid lockdown in California and I haven't been happy with their tracking but I've received my packages (minus that tea which they reimbursed me for).
  7. For now, nothing. I'm waiting for the shippers to change their policy.
  8. According to my wife, LBC and JRS aren't even accepting shipments other than an envelope to the US down here. They told her it was due to a Customs clampdown. (?)
  9. I'd run the other way based on her bad luck alone!
  10. Got my second jab of AZ on the 9th. One hour and 15 minutes. No side effects except a very rare bruise at the injection site. Well, a second side-effect that was not from the shot but from the process: sore thighs from hopping up and down while playing musical chairs in the several lines.
  11. No vog in Davao. Quite lovely outside and the rambutan and durian will soon be dropping. Some lucky person could buy our house and have some drop right in their yard (broadly hinting).
  12. Scotland should be free from Britain and this idiot should be locked away for his own good.
  13. It's been illegal to even look at alcohol in Davao for months now. It has done nothing to stop "Galloping Hotspot Syndrome" wherein 6 - 8 Critical Risk areas pop up or persist around the city each week. Some say that it would be worse without the ban but I say that's wolfsbane: "I haven't been attacked by a werewolf yet while wearing it, so it must work." There was only ever anecdotal evidence that booze-ins were a problem, seeing as how even Filipinos, in spite of their belief that random strangers on the street are offered drinks, only really drink with people they're already in close daily proximity to.
  14. And would invariably wind up in someone's private bank account.
  15. Bingo. Same reason they got so publicly angry at Canada for the shipping containers filled with garbage but never went after the consignee.
  16. Did the World Bank say the teachers were bad or that the students didn't learn enough? If your ingredients are lousy, no matter how hard you work your cake is going to fail. Frankly, a college teacher should realize that.
  17. US Global Mail is in Texas and they just today sent me an email notice that they're soon to migrate accounts to an improved software platform without raising rates. Might be a good time to check them out. I've not had a problem with them in 6 years.
  18. As in the old chestnut: No matter where you go, there you are. This is all rather weird to me. Especially the 13M price tag as that's what we're asking for our house and lot in Davao. I have my MIL and a SIL here and was initially surprised when we first arrived here in 2014 that my MIL wasn't just "bringing a girl to be a helper" (that didn't work out) but was also going to stay. It doesn't bother me as my MIL is a great cook and my SIL is a whirling dervish of housework all day. I don't think I built the house for them. We certainly won't be leaving or building another until we sell this one so the only ones who will get it are the new owners.
  19. Davao City has been announcing schedules for the second jabs depending on location and date of the first. My MIL and I are due back for AZ on August 10th. I'll take it. I've lived nearly a hermit's life since last March and we all mask up and shield up when required. I'm not too concerned with exposure. We can't even buy beer here in DC so there's no fear from me that I'll kiss a stranger...
