That's also a consideration, of course. It's not really worth the extra expense.

Of course I have. Won't they get tangled up attempting to hold the phone?

I see, I'm more of a home-person as well. Though, I like food at restaurants better.

Re: THE Thread

I wrote a really long message but I keep getting this Database Error and have to login and login and login.

What the hell, Vertical Sports?

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.

Imagine having to spend money in Norway as a foreigner.. It's literally the most expensive country in the world, and all others pale in comparison. Shame that it's such a great place to be..

This forum needs a serious upgrade. Was your message intended to go in THE Thread? If so, what was the topic of said message?

I know...unprepared foreigners are in for unpleasant surprises. Norwegians shop in Sweden because it's cheaper. Swedes shop in Denmark for the same reason. Danes shop in Germany, and Germans in Poland....

Oh yeah, I was here for that. Their tentacles won't get tangled up using the Xperia. Jellyfish are know for their superb dexterity, although this forum sometimes annoys them to the bone and they start rambling on the keyboard. Sweet_Cleopatra's posts are a testimony to this.

My sympathies. Stavanger is even more expensive than the rest of Norway, due to the oil money being close by. Great place, though I live further East myself.

You've got me on this one. But why would a jellyfish from Palau elect you use English rather than the official language of Palauan?

Palauans always try to attract tourists, they live off tourism. Better to speak English then.

I always save long messages before posting.

One time I lost an epic post and curled into a ball for the full evening.
