@Tok-Eng

They are condemned because they are 100% responsible for a tiny child’s death. You must maintain a margin for error AT ALL TIMES when blessed with the responsibility of a tiny child’s life.

I presume you are not a parent. Life is not a Television drama.

I wouldn’t know what a “zimmer” is. A walker, I understand.

I’m just sick of Korea going on and on and on about the FORMER imperialist government. So old worn out and tired, especially since it was already resolved once.

Good on Japan

Height may be relevant in basket ball but it is irrelevant in football. This time round the team just were not good enough. It happens

You mean soccer doo-doo.

Height is quite relevant in football.

So terribly sad what Cricky wrote.

Myself at 54 with a wife and two teenage kids, I’ve often thought about what I would do if I became terminally ill. It would be such a terrible burden on the ones I love most.

I think I’d have a talk with my family and it’d be me and the charcoal grill in the shower room on a sunny day.

Good on Victoria state.

I’d like to know what Mr. Trump thinks about this. I’ll bet he thinks it’s just grand.

This B.S. will end someday people. For the sake of our children, pray it’s sooner than later and easier than harder.

And did you ever consider this policy is a purposeful form of isolation? I believe it’s government policy that prevents its citizens from truly integrating with the foreign world.

you are so right about the lack of consistent phonetics in the English alphabet. It’s been debated for years among its native speakers. Unfortunately it won’t change in our lifetimes.

Its no excuse to replace the audible sounds of the language with the totally different sounds of another language.

If my wife can learn to read and write English, anyone can.

Wait. Who is the foreign media reporting to? The foreign public. The foreign public expects the given name first and the family name last.

Or let’s just pile on more confusion along with incomprehensible KATAKANA English which corrupts Japanese kid’s efforts to speak discernible English.

i often miss the countryside of America. But Trump makes me glad I left 15 years ago.

The comments of his followers just makes me want to throw up.
