Re: Desford Colliery Band World Tour with photos and videos

Thank you Nokyai. It was a great treat to hear such superb musicianship. The first two soloists, coronet and horn were virtuosos. I sat about half way back for the first half and moved up to the front row for the second half and the sound was much better; less ambient noise. It's such a pleasure to ...

Re: Pay 1% more in VAT, PM asks Thais

Canceling silly stuff like the subs and Chinese tanks makes sense as the only threat to peace around here is China. Adding 1% to VAT is fine too as you should be taxed on what you spend, not what you earn. And if you are silly rich then you should be taxed at base more. Unfortunately, this society ...

I find it slightly ironic that atheists never do anything destructive in the name of 'nothingness.'

You are eventually going to die. And since you only live once i do eat what i feel like and hungry for.
the point is not that you are going to die but how well you live until then. regardless of how long I live i would trade healthy food and a healthy life for unhealthy food and sickness.
