heaven- a punishment or a reward...
Posted: 4/6/2010 10:44:19 PM
A years back, a man kept pestering me, trying to 'save' me. I wouldn't take the bait.

Finally, he said, "Don't you want to spend eternity in heaven?"

"Will you be there?" I asked.

"Yes, I will", he said with confidence.

"No, thanks", I said.

Massage therapists can only help if soft tissue (muscle) is placing pressure of the nerve. They are not trained to manipulate bones, and in fact, can lose theirs license if they do it intentionally. The problem is that many therapists are not sure if it's muscle or bone causing the problem, so they will work on the muscles (with great pressure) for hours. This only aggravates the problem.

Bartending course
Posted: 3/26/2010 10:05:52 PM
Many years ago, I was a musician. After doing this for several years, I decided that I wanted to go to college. To do this, though, I had to get a stable job (I was always on the road as a musician) where I could work at night and go to school during the day. I took a two week bartending course. I immediately got a job in a decent bar. Two months later, I was courted by another bar that was considered by Esquire Magazine to be one of the top hundred bars in the US. I took the job; went to college, and upon graduation, was offered the job of general manager. I worked there for 15 years.

So anyway, I guess the bartending course worked for me.

How Do You Respond to Police - Legally?
Posted: 2/5/2010 5:53:31 PM
When I lived in Mexico, there was an organization that checked on police corruption. Actually, it was part of the police department. I would get stopped often, as did everyone else, but especially foreigners. The first thing they would see in my wallet was their card, and their next action was to wish me a good day and to be safe. They knew that I knew my rights, and that I would make a phone call if these rights were violated. I don't know if there is an equivalent organization in the US that would make a policeman think twice before harassing innocent people.

Will America ever have a decade that was as interesting as the 60s?
Posted: 1/23/2010 4:59:15 PM
The '60s was a special time, and to be qualified to judge this period, you would have had to have lived through it. Otherwise, you'd never truly understand. To me, the '60s didn't end at 1970, but rather until '72 or '73. Did anyone else feel this way?

How can an introverted person try acting?
Posted: 1/19/2010 6:45:29 PM
If I were you, and I do have some experience with this as my undergraduate degree is in drama, I would join an acting workshop. This way, you don't have to perform in front of an audience, but rather in front of, and with, your peers. You're all in the same boat, so this should make it easier for you. After you gain some confidence, then you can consider acting, on stage, in front of an audience.

Having money goes hand in hand with being happy.
Posted: 12/13/2009 8:35:41 PM
I see some truly happy people, where I live in Cambodia, who have little or nothing. I also see some very wealthy people here who always seem to be in a rotten mood. You can be happy with very little. Now, and I see this a lot in the US, having no money and being heavily in debt is a recipe for great unhappiness.

you're fired!
Posted: 12/1/2009 12:50:14 AM
I got fired from my first job. I was thirteen. I would take people out, on horseback, as a trail guide. The owner was full of himself. He would brag about how he would bang the rich wives of the horse owners. He had a spray can of orange paint. Everything he owned, bridles, saddles, etc..., would get sprayed just a tiny bit, just so you'd know it was his. One day, I found the spray can. I sprayed all of the horse crap around the stable orange.

My message to him: You think you own everything, but all you really own is ........

Just a note: It was mentioned a couple of times that 'The Eye' was Japanese. It was actually Chinese (well, Hong Kong)/Thai. The directors, the Pang brothers, were born in Thailand, and the movie was filmed in Hong Kong and Thailand.

for the gun control people
Posted: 10/12/2009 6:59:30 PM
Good for you and what you did...it was the right thing to do. But, I think that there are a few of us who would have done something similar, pro-gun or not. Being for gun control doesn't necessarily mean that you are a coward. I cannot sit by and watch when helpless people are being harmed, and one day, it'll probably get me killed. I got into a knife fight in Thailand (three people, two knives...guess who didn't have one?) protecting a woman I didn't even know, and I fought off two gang members in Mexico who were beating an elderly man I didn't know.

I am for gun control.

fast food restaurants??
Posted: 8/19/2009 5:21:54 PM
I have seen homeless people using fast food restaurants as their own personal bathrooms. Maybe the money they charge is to stop this, after all, they have to pay for the water and clean up. An alternative would be to offer tokens to paying customers.

Finding medical care around the world
Posted: 8/5/2009 6:20:38 PM
It can be a scary thing to get sick in a foreign country. I thought that it would be helpful to get recommendations from members of where to go, and possibly where not to go in case of an emergency.

I'll start with where I live, Cambodia. Not that many of you will ever come here, but you never know. I'm not sure if it's proper or against the rules to post phone numbers and exact addresses, so I'll just give general areas of where to find them.

CAMBODIA:

The Tropical Medicine and Travellers (sic) Clinic. Has a British doctor, and is a little pricier than Khmer clinics, but he has a good reputation. Keeps bankers ' hours. He's located on St. 108 between Norodom and Monivong.

Dr. Suor Se (unfortunately it's pronounced like Dr. Suicide) He's Khmer, and it's rare to find a really good Cambodian doctor who looks for the source rather than just treating the symptom. He's on Kampuchea Krom, a block west of Central Market. Cheap! Speaks English, and is opened 24 hours.

I am in no way involved in the medical field...just thought it would be helpful.

Lets Talk Politics - Do you believe in the Death Penality?
Posted: 7/14/2009 6:52:27 PM
I live in Cambodia. After having more than a quarter of its population (1.7 million by most estimates) killed by its then government (Khmer Rouge), Cambodia presently has no death penalty. A tough lesson learned.

I think she's trying to do something good. I don't know why that bothers a lot of people. At least she's doing something.

I'd be one angry person if I were told that when I was an orphaned infant, a wealthy foreigner wanted to adopt me to give me a better life, but had to back down because of pressure from outsiders.

I'd be curious to know how many on this board use hostels when they travel. Where have you been, and what experiences have you had? The New York Times said that hostels have gained a lot of popularity in the past year, and I'm sure the economic downturn has a lot to do with this.

Green tea .....
Posted: 7/30/2008 12:44:14 PM
Actually satx, there is a difference when it comes to green tea as compared to other teas. First bring water to a boil, then take the water from the burner, and let sit for a couple of seconds. Do not pour boiling water over green tea leaves, and once you do, do not cover. Only let the tea steep for a couple of minutes or so. If you let it steep too long, green tea tends to become very bitter.
