Re: Border/Passport Control in Iceland and Belgium

Sorry you had to go through that Rete, it sounds horrendous. I had a couple of similar experiences of being separated, yelled at and searched at JFK. Treated with utter contempt by the TSA or whoever...

Re: The scourge of unwanted phone calls

My aging parents get these constantly on their landline in the UK. It drives them bananas, but there doesn't seem to be anything they can do about it. They are on the Do Not Call list as well, not...

re: Ancestry DNA

They can challenge it but surely there's not much they can say against it being 100% match to his DNA? They caught the BTK from obtaining a sample of his daughter's DNA from her pap smear test, I'm...

Re: Florida shooting

Re: British accent disease

Personally, 9 times out of 10 I get asked whereabouts in Australia I'm from. Even had one guy get quite huffy with me when I told him he was wrong and I wasn't actually an Aussie. Also been asked if...

Re: Florida is the worst state in the nation

Florida isn't actually paradise? It's really a shithole? Color me shocked!

Re: Areas to rent in Manhattan or Brooklyn

Have a look on Zillow.com and avoid Williamsburg. Park Slope is probably the closest to what you're looking for. But if your hubs is making less than $100k it might not be do-able, as it's very...

Re: What has p*ssed you off today...part II
