You could say so. I mainly use alcohol to clean my computer and components I've tried sljivovica few times and don't see what's the big deal, unless one wants to get wasted as fast as possible. But yeah, I've got fair share of weird looks and head-shakes, this is the land of alcohol after all, lucikly I don't have to socialize much

Wow. Isn't that rather early? We usually don't hit 100 until sometime in June. This year it looks as if it will go from cold to hot right away,

I've been listening to a book about a woman who had nmda receptor antibody encephalitis. Very fascinating. It's a disease that begins with what appears to be mental illness -- and of course is but not in the usual way -- and then seizures, and then trouble speaking and moving and then catatonia. It was only identified around 2007. From medical literature, it appears it's nothing new. It was first identified in young women, but is now often found in children and also some men,

Her progress into the disease and then long recovery of her mental and physical abilities, is very interesting. Brain on Fire.

Also I have a leaking hot water tank. Or whatever they are called, I think tank is not the right word. I will let a non-native speaker inform me of the right word.

Heater. My language ability returned,

I can imagine that under-the-influence Serbs would start to grate on your nerves a bit, especially considering that most are extroverts to begin with , let alone when they start to do shots. I guess I won't hear you singing folk songs with them anytime soon. My dad laughs at Kordun Serbs here, he says they sound like bellowing bulls when they get liquored up, Bosnians a close second. He and I prefer music from Serbia proper. You're lucky living there. Now get out there and make some friends. It's never too late to start drinking plum brandy and enjoying the festivities!

I think Michael lives in the Netherlands, .

I don't know if I would make it in Serbia. : lol:

btw, I have a great book recommend that it's a true story about the rescue of allied airmen from Serbia in WWII. The Forgotten 500. Great stuff. War, intrigue, romance, derringer do, the book has it all.

Not really early. Average time of the year that we hit 100 is May 2nd. So only a few days early. Sky Harbor hit 102 today but will cool down a little bit for the rest of the week.

It's a bit scary.

The water heater I have in this house is the third one. Both started leaking at different location. But at least they only leak. One of our neighbor, upon his returning home and open the garage, water gushed out.

Average life span of water heater here is 10 years. It's disgusting that the "new" one that replaced the old one last only 5-6 years but it's under warranty so the supplier had to replace the leaky one though we had to pay a plumber to install it.

All the talks about drinking Asians usually are very good in holding the liquor. My family is the rare one. Hubby is really good.

Lol, no thanks, I don't think there's anything more boring than that, it's more like something for a 16 or 17-yr old to enjoy or for those who got stuck in that period. And I don't dance 'kolo' either

The problem I am faced with is so complex that I feel overwhelmed. I could explain it all with lots of typing, but then you would probably fall asleep reading. But it's all made more difficult by the fact that the leaking really old one is connected to a solar panel.

And do you know how much alcohol in their system? Lots of Chinese wines are over 50% alcohol. And when they drink, they drink it like water.

My first job in Hong Kong, I worked for a company that import lots of machines from Japan. My boss talked about his business meeting there was quite eye opening. He was in a corporate conference room. The really big one with a HUGE oval table that sits 20-30 people. Basically, by the end of the meeting, the table was fully covered by empty alcohol bottles. And they are not beer bottles.

Re: Titiless Nole Chat Part 4

This topic raised in the boy friend thread which is totally off topic so I put it here.

說書/Chinese Storytelling

Now click on fellowing youtube at your own risk. The first one is about Buddhism. Buddhism is huge in Chinese culture and this is about the teaching of a Chinese monk who was a master in Zen.



This is the love story from the Warring States era in Chinese history from 476 BC to 221 BC. It's a very famous story called "Farewell my Concubine" in Chinese Opera.

I got sunburnt and it wasn't even sunny... Don't know when my skin got sensitive.
Vlegend sounds cool btw like something from a sci-fi film.
