    I don't know.
    I was with this couple last night, Filipina / Aussie and he was telling me how they met. Rather cool story. He was 18, still fresh and on his dads computer doing some work. His dad left open a Phils dating site so he took a look and thought man these girls are cute so opened up a profile of his own.

    Bang....he gets a hit from a girl his age, 18 years old and never talked with any other girls. A few months later went to Manila to meet her. Remember this due hasn't had a GF before. He also had never traveled overseas. Can you imagine how he felt?

    11 years later they are married and still together, totally into each other and have 2 kids and a house in Perth.

    Sure most of the time we have this big age gap but not always.

    Okay now that this is in an off-topic thread;
    I am sorry if it might offend some of you that I do not follow Politics, at any level, be it the People, the Parties, or whatever! For me; every time I log onto a Facebook Page/ Forum there are out and out idiots arguing over a (insert name) Party of some type, slinging shyte, people calling others names, SO MUCH HATRED simply because of some idiot following another idiot! I find it very sad that people are so consumed... (Sorry; to me all Politicians are idiots in one way or another) One eyed people or one-sided hatred; I have no time for!

    I posted the Video BECAUSE; I could not believe that Adults would listen to questions from someone holding a microphone asking them about extinct Dinosaurs and NOT think, just for a second, and ask; "Pardon me? Are you talking about a Dinosaur?" :o o: (I am SURE ANY kid who was asked those questions would have been like; "HUH" :o o: Come on, who has NOT watched Jurassic Park or had an interest in Dinosaurs growing up as a kid knowing anything that ends with 'saurus' is not necessarily always a Thesaurus? :biggrin: lol)

    It was the stupidity and the way they pondered before giving their replies that cracked me up, it could have been Steve Job's Son for all I care! (PLEASE! Apple Fans; do not attack me, pleeeassse! :biggrin: lol)

    Okay, now let's pull up our Big Gurl Stand-up Comedian's Panties and move on... :biggrin:

    Guys,

    Please take a step back from this conversation for a week while you consider one of the options described below to prevent me from losing another 20+ minutes of my life forever.
    1. Send a PM and sort out whatever the problem is. Example: Screenshot from 2016-08-22 13:42:52.png

    2. Start Ignoring each other and never see the other's posts. Screenshot from 2016-08-22 13:52:20.png

    3. User the Report button instead of engaging one another. Screenshot from 2016-08-22 14:06:46.png

    I'm sure most of the forum users/readers would greatly appreciate it as well!

    Thanks in advance,
    Wrye83

    P.S. If you absolutely must carry on with this relentless bitching back and forth could you at least try to make it just a tad f*cking interesting? I had to take a break half way through that pile of poo above to watch some paint dry just to living things up a bit.

    I have read and heard more about people going to Zanzibar now than I ever heard about before the fatal event. Just goes to show there really is no such thing as bad publicity. For me, I'll continue to boycott it on the grounds that killing the customer whose purchases pay the salaries can never be justified and should not be rewarded with future profits.

    My Childhood was awesome as I was adopted into an incredible Family but in no way was it as fun as adulthood. From 16 till now at 58 I have had an incredible ride in life and still am (on top of the world) in my own way. Prior to 16 my jobs in order were, apple picking, tobacco picking, Chicken catching, cook, mushroom picking, and wood cutting. At 16 had a dune-buggy, dirt bike and a snowmobile, and my car was a 1962 Chevy 2. When I joined the Army at 18, the discipline I learned along with proper decisions has landed me with more in life that I could have ever really needed, imagined, or wanted.

    My wife told me a sad story the other day regarding a distant relation in Siquijor, this woman was standing at a corner when a drunk on a motorbike managed to run into her and break her arm, it turned out that the drunk had no registration or insurance or money (only money for tanduay) so her arm was never fixed, this happened over 1 month ago so the woman has all sorts of complications to the injury now but the drunk is still on the road with the motorbike as the police feel sorry for him as he would not be able to carry out his business with no motorbike. :wtf::wtf::wtf:
    So it seems that if Dumaguete is the wild west then Siquijor is the wild wild west.

    They will but won't understand it and then say the writers are anti filipino and should go home.

    I reckon anyone who is kind to dogs (and most animals) is a good human being.

    That is the hallmark of we expats... the World is full of people our age that grew up and grew old and eat out at at 5pm for the senior citizen special. Those of us who defied age struck out searching for a second youth.... hats off to my fellow expats who saw age as just a number .... Huzzah !!
