Be careful Raden888, be very careful.....

SG has been on this board as long as I have, albeit in several different guises. And his demeanor is sometimes a lot worse than JR8's and even makes a reasonably good foil for V..

Ruffle his feathers at your own risk. :P :lol:

No worries SMS,I can take care of myself.

After all, I am here just for a friendly discourse not interested in belittling anyone.

I understand the dry humour very well :P

Yea, but SGlide is Dutch . . . therefore harmless! :)

Oi, speaking of which . . . did anyone here read about the Dutch commandos who boarded a German vessel captured by Somali scum and took them all prisoner?

Kudos! Now, why can't more nations do that?

Yup, this was on the way back from service . . . it does get very, very hot . . . especially on the road. Thank God for aircon.

V, as I've said before, you don't leave openings very often, so I capitalize when you do. :P

Ah yes...I remember making a pact with myself when I arrived here 3 years ago that I would NOT let the 'mad walkers'' force me to the ''right'' side of the path. And guess what?
I've stuck to my guns! I lose a bit of time here and there when I'm forced to suddenly stop as my left shoulder is peeled to the wall but someone tries to walk past me from the opposite direction with their right shoulder to the same wall. They don't win. I smile and say sweetly, "I'm really sorry, I'm trying to keep to my left".
I'm all alone on this crusade and I don't care. I refuse to be dragged down to their odd behaviour. Sadly, I'm in quite a demented state now.....it's a tough gig this walking on the left! :wink: Got some good advice on here though like carrying 'angular'/bulky parcels on your left side. And stay your path. They DO move at the last minute.
As for the swimming thing. Dear Lord, they really take the cake for annoying behaviour. Just crash into them. Have you tried that?
