Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

I think it was a mistake for England rto react by playing the same games as the Columbians. Screaming at refs never changed a decision, let the captain complain. Similarly joining in the turning the 2nd half into an Olympic diving competition was a mistake. When challenged with childish behavior--ta...

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

The charge is only part of the way that usage is reduced. A UK Tv reporter did a nice piece where she stood with a cashier in a s-market. The reduction in people taking bags was not as great as reported elsewhere. What was interesting was that over 60% of the customers taking bags either apologised ...

Caller, you feel like a zombie through sleep-deprivation--- At least the Germans, Spanish, Portuguese and Argentinians will be spared that problem.

Re: Forum behavior

I would enjoy the forum better if "Parliamentary" etiquette was observed.

You can attack the ideas and opinions but NOT attack the poster.

You can say--That is an idiotic thought, but not say-- you are an idiot.

You can say-- that is not true, you cannot say, you are lying.
