It's taking awhile to sink in...

<t>Long time didn't come to this forum.In fact I have thought of learning mandarin these days. Though I know it is awfully hard (or that I am incredibly untalented). Urdu, language in Pakistan ? Emerging market is not easy to break in if you do not have local connections or governmental relations.Ha...

Greatest films of all time

Gone with the wind, don't you love Vivien Leigh in that ?Films that are most impressive to me : The edge, spy game, Insomnia,Master and commander. Same theme, a bit gaming a bit twisted.But won't say they are best.

Sourcing great talent

this proves how desperate/unattractive/unrich ppauper is, given he hasn't seen the person's picture. One could (wrongly) generalise this attribute to a proportion of males in the community as well,something worth your noting Emily.

sorry for being politically incorrect. 'If your catholic go to mass, if your protestant go to church'. My smoker friend once said that smoking helps to release stress not due to the niccotine but because you get to have a quiet moment alone.
