Why are people so excited like Singapore? It's the most tacky, soul-less and absurd place I could imagine. Feels like a grotesque nightmare. People are beyond boring, shallow and money-oriented (or, more precisely, spending-on-expensive-rubbish-oriented), as if retarded... in an odd way :?

Night events there organized by the oil industry are WILD (booze, drugs, prostitutes). Expect swings in your P&L the time you recover!
I find I sweat a lot in Singapore.

Reminded me of a London street at the school end hours (you can tell the gender by trousers or skirt and the hair length).

I didn't sweat but got nauseated in the restaurants, only the toilets were too filthy to enter, and it's probably forbidden to vomit in the streets. Besides, I got stuck to the dirt sticky table.

Eh, I probably just missed my cats...

Well, both days are named for Norse gods, if that is what you mean. When people make up gods and then later discard them as they are no longer needed, the gods don’t actually disappear. They can often be found hanging around railway stations, looking old and poor, if the relevant literature is to be trusted.

Does anyone here have homemade sex "tapes"? And if so, how do you store/protect them?

I keep mine in the main bedroom, top shelf of the wardrobe (behind the spare pillows, next to the glittery dildo). Seriously, the only reason (pretty common) to worry about it is if you have several lovers whom you keep secret from each other. In that case destroy any evidence - not worth your life :-D

According to family legend, one of my ancestors killed the last wolf in Halland.

And then he took the left ear to one government office to collect the bounty, and the right ear to another office, and then the tail to a third.

Moral of the story: don't kill wolves. It leads to dishonesty.

I hope it was more than 4th generation ancestor: "punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation" (Exodus's Generational Curse)

Why people keep sending messages ? if a phone call via whatsapp costs nothing? this is inadmissible, this is absolutely a pity, this is a disgrace for all of us. We need to hear the pals, to feel they are there, that they are not bots

I like being able to choose when I respond to someone, which messaging allows. With a phone call, it's either take it right then or send it to voicemail, and voicemail is generally more cumbersome than a message.

I suspect the people I message feel the same way.

And if you need to talk, the message can be, "Give me a call when you get a moment."

Can anyone hum 10 TV theme tunes from the last decade? Ok, five? One?? That’s easy…Hawaii Five-O, since it’s the same as the original.

I played a compilation of 1960’s TV themes for my children last week. They are all memorable. So much so that they are on rotation in my head even today.
