  1. Just a perceived advantage, since it sounds much more like a serious disadvantage in a combat situation.
  2. Actually, each county on both sides of WWII used methamphetamines. -snip- During World War II, German pharmaceutical company Temmler marketed methamphetamine tablets as a nonprescription drug under the brand name Pervitin. Methamphetamine triggers a response in the body that’s similar to adrenaline, heightening alertness and a willingness to take risks. Japanese, U.S., British and German military personnel are reported to have used the stimulant to enhance endurance and ward off fatigue on long campaigns. Kamikaze pilots received high doses of Pervitin before suicide flight missions. Japanese factory workers also used methamphetamine to work longer hours. The German army ordered front-line soldiers and fighter pilots to take military-issued stimulants that contained a combination of methamphetamine and cocaine. -snip- https://www.history.com/topics/crime/history-of-meth

    Queueing

    Queueing in Hell A man dies and goes to Hell. There he finds that there is a different Hell for each country. He goes to the German Hell and asks, "What do they do there?" He’s told, "First they put you in an electric chair♨ for an hour. Then they lay you on a bed of nails for another hour. Then the German devil comes in and beats you for the rest of the day." The man doesn't like it, so he moves on and checks out the American Hell, the Russian Hell and Hells of other countries. He finds that they're all more or less the same as the German Hell. Then he comes to the Philippines Hell and finds that there is a long queue of people waiting to get in. Amazed, he asks, "What do they do here?" He told, "First they put you in an electric chair for an hour. Then they lay you on a bed of nails for another hour. Then the Filipino devil comes in and beats you for the rest of the day." "But that is exactly the same as all the other Hells; so why are so many people waiting to get in here?" wonders the man. He is told, "Because the maintenance here is so bad that the electric chair does not work. Someone has stolen all the nails from the bed and the Filipino devil is a former government servant, so he just comes, signs the attendance register and then goes off to Jollibee."
  4. Yeah, and I’m starting to lose count of them... slow down, no smoking, etc. I guess that Filipinos either like to break rules or maybe they just lack any self-discipline.
  5. They're usually covered with yellow stains
  6. This always happens with my wife too, who is constantly meeting other Filipinas in the States. But is this really any different than Yanks recognizing other Yanks in the Phils?... or Kiwi's recognizing other Kiwi's in the Phils... or Aussies recognizing other Aussies, etc.? Maybe it's just overhearing a word or two that identifies where we're from?... or maybe it's just that we have different mannerisms from each other?
  7. If the government stops the program, illegal heroin will never fade away. The desire for it is too great for most addicts to stay away from it. If the legal stuff disappears, the addicts will be back on the street buying the high-priced junk from the dealers. I would hope that with all of the problems with heroin in the USA, especially with overdose related deaths (from fentanyl-laced heroin) that the USA would have a similar program to the UK for heroin addicts.
  8. It all depends on which cannabinoid you want more of... THC or CBD? Indica plants have a higher CBD:THC ratio. Sativa plants have a higher THC:CBD ratio. https://thesourcenv.com/know-your-cannabis-eight-differences-between-indica-and-sativa/
  9. Makes perfect sense to me but it’s not really something new, since the UK has had free heroin programs for addicts from the 1920’s until they were pressured by the US (with its war on drugs) to switch to methadone. Methadone is not as effective as heroin, plus it has many undesirable side-effects. Many peeps in methadone programs (in the USA) sell their methadone on the street in order to buy heroin. Please don’t ask me how I know. I’ve read that some cigarette addicts, as well as addicts to alcohol in the UK, are now demanding free cigarettes and alcohol from the government, since they believe that addicts of all things should have it provided to them for free by the government. Sounds rather silly, but what do you think? In an unrelated situation, the USA has legalized hemp production in most states. Hemp is identical to marijuana, except for its lower level of THC. Since both plants are cannabis sativa and each one contains THC, police are having problems enforcing marijuana laws, since the existing test kits are unable to identify one from the other. Police dogs are also unable to detect the difference between hemp and marijuana. Because of this, police are very reluctant to make marijuana arrests. So, in a bizarre twist of fate, the USA has unintentionally legalized marijuana in the states growing hemp that do not have legalized marijuana yet.
  10. I do the same for many reasons. One reason is that I don't like to look like a tourist with an expensive camera hanging from my neck, as well as carrying a shoulder bag for accessories, especially when I really am a tourist in a foreign land.
  11. Just like the rest of us, I faced many cultural differences when I first came to the Philippines. 3-in-1 coffee was just one of them, since I had never seen that type of coffee before. When my visit turned into an indefinite stay with my 13a visa, I purchased a drip coffee maker, but I was surprised to learn that I was going to go through many communication problems with my DW about where (and how) to buy coffee. Finally, after many discussions, my DW said that they sell some type of beans at the local wet market (palengke), and people soak them in hot water to make some type of drink. Hmmm, sounded like coffee beans to me, so I went there and found Barako coffee for the very first time. They charged me 500p for a kilo but when my DW went there without me, they charged her 300p for a kilo, so I completely stopped shopping at the palengke, and let me DW do all of the shopping there.
  12. I'm really hesitant to say this, but I believe that this all goes back to the title of your topic: "Are All Filipinas Insanely Jealous?" Yes, Filipinas can be extremely jealous at times, but not all Filipinas are insanely jealous. I'm no expert in these matters but staying in love with your spouse will often involve accepting the things that you cannot change about them. In your case, I have no doubts at all that you love your wife and that she loves you, but you may just have to accept the fact that her jealousy goes above and beyond any rational reasons.
  13. If that's not strong enough, Everclear is also available in a 194 proof/97% ABV version in Rhode Island and Texas.
  14. Everclear is 190 proof! It’s more than enough proof for me
  15. You've raised a very valid point for why many Filipinas have jealousy issues. My Filipina wife will often ask me if she is as bad as my 1st wife, and of course I always say NO.
