  1. Past hour
  2. I decided to sell most of my oversized items and just ship two. I'm keeping my telescope and sausage stuffer. I was able to take both apart so they will (barely) fit in balikbayan boxes. The telescope and tripod are in the boxes dianglely and from top to bottom. The stuffer fit ok after taking it apart. Thanks to all that responded to my post!

    Identify This Snake

    That is definitely a cobra. You can tell by the nose and head scale configuration and by the eyes which are close to the nose. If you were bitten, and have not suffered any ill effects, then it was a dry bite in which no venom was injected. Very likely the snake was as surprised as you were and immediately struck out without loading venom. But once the snake was hiding, you can bet it was in full defensive mode and ready to kill if attacked. Consider yourself an extremely fortunate person. Anytime you see 2 holes together, then most certainly it was a snake bite, and the fact you did not notice it right away was probably due to high Adrenalin running through your body and that cobra fangs are not long and do not penetrate very far. In addition, because of the short fangs, the cobra actually has to chew when biting in order to inject the venom.

    NCAA Football Upset of the Year

    Hope this young guy stays healthy. Back in the mid to late 80's.. I played basketball at the main Y in central Toronto.. at noon during the week and earlier on weekends. One day.. the door opened.. and Bubba Smith walked in to play.. all 6'7" and 270+ pounds of him. Seems he was in Toronto shooting some commercials and needed a break.. and he joined our game for a couple of weeks. I'm 6'2" and at the time around 200 pounds.. and I took one look at Bubba and the ONLY thought in my mind was "how the F*** do we play THIS guy". He just seemed HUGE and took up a LOT of space. And this was a pick up game.. in Canada.. lol.. not Chicago. Turned out he really couldn't play any more.. at all.. His knees were shot.. and he couldn't run much. Once we knew that, we just played around him.. And it seemed such a shame.. Sports had clearly been such a huge part of the man's life.. but ultimately the sports took away a big part of what he loved.

  8. Thanks so much Salty for sharing and yes sharing again this story and what you went through as I would never have picked up on your plight and the info you have courageously given as I am irregularly on this site. I do though hope you are/have recovered to a point of normalcy. The information within this thread is invaluable and very happy that you revamp every few years. Cheers, Steve.

  11. The brand of the medicine has no consequence. We got the girl the medication elsewhere and she was fine. UTI is a common occurrence that in most cases the person can be treated at a clinic as an outpatient. This hospital took advantage of a mother that is from a poor province who believed everything they said. She doesn't even know how to read and write. She signs her name to packages that I get delivered to the house and that's what she did when the hospital put the form in front of her because she was worried about her daughter. All I can say is..beware.

    The Great Big LinC Cruise Thread

    Actually, I check all the major cruise lines for deals. I don't usually even plan my cruise. i see a good price and I book it. I think the reason I go on Princess the most is familiarity. I also get some perks for being a frequent cruiser with them.

  18. That is good news. Most garbage etc. comes from the north. In this north bay just there (other side of Mactan Newtown), I once saw even a dead pig floating. The whole garbage from the north is collected there....I do not recommend swimming on the north side.
  19. Yes, of course - but it needs two. US has agreements with foreign countries to EXCHANGE information (reciprocal). However, the US is "behind the curve" and could not provide it yet (their "processes and infrastructure" are a little bit on the old side)..they still have to do some work until they comply...but I think this is would be outside the discussion here... Anyway, it was just introduced to pay for the financial crisis and the tax payer in the US were not enough...so the gov tries to get every cent it can to fill the hole (which went to corporate big banks - paid by the US tax payer)

      Hi Liquido,
      I am curious about which Chicago "burb" you lived in.  I lived in Orland Park, IL from '71 - '78. I've been in Madison, WI for the past 5 years, going back to the Philippines next year, probably in June.
