You've never heard of her? How I envy you?

Save your dream. Save your love. It could be a good luck.

@ Do the hustle

For the same reason I don't call high school prostitution, compensated dating or sex slaves, comfort women.

Can we go back to calling it a tidal wave?Yes, technically it is not the tide but "Harbour wave" is not correct either. Remember the good old days when a 7.2 was massive. And what's a temblor for the non-American-centric amongst us?

I prefer the elbow bump to the high 5 which as a teacher of small children I am mandated to do every 45 seconds despite not being American.

Had they simply "pushed" the carts I could have dismissed it as a prank, but these animals "shoved" them.

Yes, it's a genius play on words isn't it?

Soon Britain will release a new detective series called Fish and Chips with the 2 lead characters being named Dawn Fish and Chips O'Henry

@smithinjspan

My brother committed suicide by jumping from an overpass some 20m to the freeway below. Sometimes I wake up in the middle night thinking how alone he must have felt in his final moments. I wonder what he was thinking as he presumably paced up and down working up the courage to jump. That selfish coward!

Posted in: Man arrested for buying cup meant for ¥100 coffee but pouring ¥200 latte into it See in context

This is exactly why don't use the self service aisle at the supermarket: If the cashier makes a mistake, I get it for free. If I make a mistake, I am a criminal. He paid for a 100 yen cup and used a 100 yen cup. I'm sure there's still enough profit in a 100 yen latte.

I never saw the show but it seems a lot of people who appear on these reality type programs have self-confidence issues. Shouldn't the producers be investigated for putting such a vulnerable person in such a vulnerable position?

Posted in: Beatles survivors Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr still making music See in context

The Beatles were a bit before my time. My first real introduction to Paul McCartney was "Coming Up" around 1980. Kind of put the John Vs Paul argument to bed.

6 of my siblings are halfies. Never have they ever considered it demeaning. They do find the term "double' a bit ridiculous. Seems Karen should get a job and stop making assumptions about everyone else.

yeah, yeah, she was living the fairy tale princess fantasy. A 20 year old living with her old grandmother and the two of them getting by on her pension. There is no excuse for killing someone but financial strain does make it more understandable.
