Re: Learning to drive over here

Re: Sick 73 y.o. on Brit cruise ship dropped by rescuers into frigid waters

Re: Does the dust here bugger up your sinuses?

Re: Freedom of speech doesn't exist in the UK anymore apparently

It's not necessarily religion that's the problem, if people need something to believe or have faith in then fine - at their base level they all teach exactly the same things anyway. It's those that...

Re: Limit the number of ladyboys...

LOL was that the nutter who thought he could cure gays through some sort of hormone injections? I do wish people would pull their heads out the sand with regards to that topic, so silly.

Re: Tipping

First off, places are not allowed to add 10% service charge anymore, unless they're classed as a tourist outlet, so I always ask them to remove it! They're adding the 10% illegally.

Re: Al Ain airshow

From what I can gather they were just letting people walk in anyway as the first day or so was cancelled due to bad weather, so I think they were just happy to have people there.

Re: Valentine's Day in Dubai....... it's a DRY one.......

I also think it's tragic that so many people seem to rely on alcohol to have a good time, how sad must their lives be for that to have to happen?

Re: Meltdowns - how often?

Although it is good to let off steam, if you constantly build things up then when you eventually do explode it'll be a big one. Plus if you don't argue about things, it means you don't really care.

Re: Boat for a Tight Landlubber

They were on about licencing the trailers for boat towing as well, so you need to look at that. So you have an RYA powerboat licence? Although it's not enforced they will do it at some point.
