Re: Your rants here

I stumbled upon Errrb a year ago. He got a tattoo, and seems to spend his evenings and nights in a place called "Russian Vodka Room" on 52nd and 8th. Last time I saw him he was drinking in the company of few opera singers in Met, and showing them his scars. I distinctly remember him asking a rhetori...

Re: Your rants here

Well I have not found the mash up - maybe on a different thread. In any case, some poems are like dreams and others are like nightmares!  That one was somewhere in between, with contributions from FrenchX, exner, ExSan, Cuchulainn, and Errrb, as I recall. Anyway, goodnight and maybe some time for f...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

KGB good, CIA bad?  looking back, I can't help but remember that GHW Bush (41st president of the US and Reagan's VP) was head of the CIA (Nixon gave Bush 1 a job when he lost a senate race to Lloyd Bentsen) while Gorbachev had been head of the KGB. If you asked a liberal during the Bush 1 years whe...

Re: Israel, land of milk and honey

Appeasement? agreed that Saudi, UAE, Egypt, and Jordan aren't particularly pleasant countries, but the Trump administration has figured out that those 4 countries are major donors to the Palestinians and so have leverage. The plan seems to be to convince the Saudis etc and then have them convince t...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

trackstar,  Thank you for your inputs about what lady needs :). You know there are  awkward moments sometimes ... When one person can hardly breath (because of intoxication and   other substances ...), and another person (me, drunk but alive) feels that he needs to have a small talk about stuff, whi...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

I was going to watch the interview, but the woman that I care about got so drunk and high .... , so that I had to carry her to the restroom and hold her head from falling into a sink, while she was vomiting.  I could only hear sentences "You remind me my daughter" with puking sounds in the backgroun...

Re: A thread about OT threads: or the Meta OT thread

Once you get the job and you are on all-male company retreat in Finland then you can cut loose, get loaded, and run around naked by the pool.   Wouldn't it be more fun to do the same thing during job interview (not in all-male company) ?  Possibly - did you ever have an interview like that and get ...

Re: UK going to the dogs

Paul:It’s interesting that the daughter had just arrived from Russia. Maybe she unwittingly brought in a poisoned bottle of vodka. Or a potato? Or something else that Russia is famous for. Can’t think of anything else at the moment. Ballet dancer? It could have been a faulty batch of Russian vodka,...

Re: UK going to the dogs

It sounds like Russians do whatever they want in UK without fear of any repercussions ...

  The guy who was blamed for poisoning Litvinenko is a member of Russian parlament, he is also hosting a show which is called "Traitors of Motherland". It could be found on youtube.

Re: Diamonds are a girl's best friend......

Heaven forbid ("ostracizing" Shakespeare)! He was a proponent of women's rights through his writing. PS, does leptoq think that his punctuation makes him fun to talk to? !!!! ..... Sir Anthony Sher claims Shakespeare was afraid of woman. Some people also claim that Shakespeare's real name was "Shei...
