A Rare Event in Udon This Sunday!

I just started a course (free - auditing) titled "Think Again -- How to Reason and Argue".

This is a REAL MUST for any guy that is married or has a TGF. 55555555

It is rather in-depth and requires some effort but lots of fun.

Bubba's Bar & Grill (Sponsor)

Sgt---

If you need a taxi to Bubba's, I might (for a large fee) be willing to help you. LOL

The old cigarette commercial in the USA "I'd walk a mile for a Camel" comes into play. Maybe you would walk a few miles for Jun's split pea soup?

Just joking with you. Hope June makes more soup for you.

Islamic State on the March

Seems the PC Brigade (including Barack Osama -- errr sorry, Obama) is afraid to say that this is a religion related thing and try to push it off as an "ideological" problem. Truth is that if it is just ideological, radicals would be less willing to martyr themselves. They believe that their god is w...

Thousands of Russians Stranded.

A friend just got back from Pattaya and said that there were very few Russian people to be seen. Seems that for whatever reason, the popularity of Thailand has gone down sharply for these guys.
