I got drunk with a Czech girl once. Never accept a drink from them, they distill things from trees that should never be distilled. I've never crashed into walls while walking after drinks. I nearly fell head first into a toilet...
I had a gf many years ago who broke up with me. As much as I cared for her I had no qualms putting that behind more or less straight away. If someone new had come along that I was interested in I'd have easily slipped into pursuit mode the next day. But then again I'm so introverted that I can easily settle in for years without dating. As it was, it was 7 years before I started seeing my current gf and she'd not dated in quite a few years too.
Depends on how shallow the prospective partner is. A few of my friends and family have had bad acne and their features have some pretty angry scars, but that hasn't stopped them from getting married and/or starting families.
This is the nature of employment particularly in the US where employers can hire and fire at will. Your friend applied for what is termed compassionate or bereavement leave in the UK and Australia but this is only applicable for family. His leave application was rejected but still he went, this would probably fall under some sort of violation of their employment contract. While it would seem unfair, careful reading of the employment contract should definitely reveal that this is a firing offence.
unles you're a mad fisherman and want to tackle the big barras and Saratoga up in the top end. Barras make good eating. As long as you give em a good cleaning they won't taste muddy. Oh to kill a fish quickly, use the back of a heavy knife and smack them quite hard at the back of their head. That should stun it enough that you can quickly gut it.
I went deep sea fiahung with some friends off Terrigal once. I got seasick and hurled up enough burley that one of my friends pulled up 15 1kg trevallies
Afraid I'll have to disagree there. I'm pretty sure I have a better idea of my ancestry especially considering the number of members in my maternal grandmother's generation and what I know of the family from that side. . While debating this has been remotely interesting, it's derailing the purpose of this thread and to be honest it's leading me to reveal more about my background than I'm generally willing to share on the internet.
really late reply. my ancestors were likely all very short being of "peasant" southern Chinese heritage dating back to the imperial days. For those of my generation, we'd have access to significantly higher caloric content food which coupled with our environment meant we were able to attain sizes and heights well beyond our ancestors. In any case genetics is a whole nother thang. my gf is about 5'4. She'd probably like it if I wasn't quite so much taller than her.....
If you know where his brother lives, write an old fashioned heart felt apology letter and pass it to L's brother. Ask him to give it to L. Although it's nice to apologise in person, sometimes there is a lot of sincerity in putting words to a page. And I mean properly pen and paper writing, not an email or text message.
