  1. I just posted that one on my Facebook page earlier today. Easily one of the finest guitar solos in history. I usually listen to all the digital restores from that show while I am working.
  2. Given the opportunity, I would skipped country as well. What blows my mind is that BI had their passports (and the court documents) and gave them back to the Koreans. Bizarre.
  3. A bunch of us arrive at Coco Amigos for New Year's dinner and drinks. Waitress gives us the menus and hovers about with her ordering pad at the ready. We look things over and start to order. Waitress says, "Sorry, sir. The kitchen is closed." Waitress takes up the menus and walks off. We sit there stunned and then start to giggle uncontrollably.
  4. This is what I do when I do my one month visit to the US: Go to ebay. Search for "bad esn" latest iphone or samsung s series. Make sure they have unlock codes for them on ebay (usually verizon and at&t are easy and cheap unlocks). Buy phone at steeply discounted cost cuz it's "blacklisted" in the US. Unlock phone. Bring it to the Philz. You can't use a blacklisted, bad esn in the US, buy they work great here. Caveat: Some samsungs have problems getting LTE - some workarounds though. Also, if a Samsung, make damn sure the USB interface is working when you hook it up to a PC. I usually buy five or six every year for "personal use." The cameras on the latest iphones and sammies are pretty great.
  5. If you have a gal that works and pays into monthly expenses, you don't need to do that.
  6. The Philippines has four Korean FA-50's - capable of Mach 1.5. Since there's four, I sure hope they use their turn indicators and don't pass on the inside when they're flying in formation.
  7. http://www.vox.com/world/2017/3/2/14790816/jeff-sessions-russia-perjury-law "FRANKEN: If there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do? SESSIONS: Sen. Franken, I am not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign, and I did not have communications with the Russians, and I am unable to comment on it." "LEAHY: Several of the President-elect’s nominees or senior advisers have Russian ties. Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election, either before or after election day? SESSIONS: No."
  8. So, AG Jeff Sessions now has Russian ties and lied about it under oath? Sweet. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  9. Trump need a bullet to the head for treasonous collaboration with the Russians. Just a bit off center of his lecherous leer. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  10. Rubbish. Ask Owen's father what he thinks of his son's sacrifice - I can only imagine what he would have said before Congress. http://edition.cnn.com/2017/02/26/politics/navy-seal-father-donald-trump/ As for Trump, he won't even take credit for the raid's failure (most Commander-in-Chiefs do) and prefers to blame the military. Lame. http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/2/28/14773716/trump-fallen-navy-seal-owens-carryn-widow-yemen-raid-speech-congress Trump is a performance artist pretending to be a world leader.
  11. Blame Obama.
  12. CK, do you have a link to the that new information. I can't find it. Thanks.
  13. That's the answer right there, then. Yeah, I just gave him the phone number to the PNB in New York. I figured cash could only be hand-carried in, I just couldn't find the info. Thanks!
  14. Someone who is abroad asked me if they could mail me 20,000 "old" peso bills (which will expire at the end of March) via FedEx or another courier so that I could convert them to new bills and send him the balance via Paypal. I tried to research it, but I couldn't come up with anything. I have a feeling it's not a good idea, but could anyone chime in with their opinion or maybe provide other options for this. I believe the individual in question is in the US. Thanks.
