I guess that's what happens when a whole population is afraid to follow their dreams because their parents didn't think is was a good idea. You end up with a whinging populations that are afraid to place the blame squarely on the shoulders of those responsible.......



Thats a very sweeping generalization. Perception is projection.

Themselves.

There is a lot of potential sports talent here but the fact that money & greed override all else here tends to disseminate any pursuits of "glory" seeking instead material comforts. If you didn't step out of your comfort zone to try then don't dis those who came here to do your work for you and flying your flag giving glory to a country other than their own.

Chew on that for a while......


dayum SMS, you do like to go on don't you? Despite being here 26 years, despite being married to a local lady, despite having kids here, despite the fact that you know these trolls don't think before they type. If I didn't know better, I might think these trolls are an alter ego so you can lecture on how useless the natives are without looking like a chump yourself. But you're bigger than that aren't you?

I'm chasing my dream. I know many who are too. Don't tar all of us with the same brush.

I worry when you mention deep brown stuff and stick your tongue out while discussing my eBanana.

4 Hail Tigers, 3 Our Heinekens and a pinch on the butt of the nearest SPG should do the trick.

And why would an SPG allow a yellow-skin like you to get near her?
