The Old Bus Falling Over Trick

Is it possible for a double decker bus to have an accident and fall over, (as happens so often in the movies) without a single injury? :o As a flesh and blood human, I would have thought that there would have been at least the odd bruise. Or are all the DD's padded on the inside just in case? - That...

Another actual example: We shipped our belongings from NZ last year. EXcluding the packing, the actual shipping costs were about S$4800 + insurance. This was for a 20 foot container and unpacking services. WRT ditching your items and buying new here - beware that you get what you pay for in Singapor...

Absolutely true that genital warts can be transmitted while using a condom, use of a "full glove" condom is necessary (one which also covers the testacles - can I use that word on this site?) and is not a guarantee. The only way to really prevent ANY STD is not to engage in sex. Not something I woul...

Not having sex or using condoms can also pr...
