Re: More Doom and Gloom

Probably not, in our case. I am just shy of 5'10" and have grey hair. Daughter is barely 5 feet and cute, but she is, after all, military and doesn't put up with much.

Perhaps in Greece unattended women are treated as abondoned and subject to pedis possesio, or ownership through capture.


The Italians are usually very nice to American Military. They seem to be (IMHO) decently disposed to Americans in general. You should have a great time this summer.

Thank your daughter for her service to the country.

Leave your unpinchable kevlar undies at home and it might.

Indeed the "old countries" are a little different. *I was in greece about 15 years ago with my petite girlfriend. *A couple of the local greek boys wandered by and saw her standing alone. *One of them thought she was cute so he picked her up and started carrying her off.
Actually, that's quite rare. Greek boys normally prefer sheep.

Re: More Doom and Gloom

Thats what these fine fellows ended up having to settle for
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

Gee John Galt,

For someone who can pontificate about everything, and anything, you've remained strangely silent regarding my question to you in reply#50.

Re: More Doom and Gloom

Hello rockpile. Sorry I missed your query.

Did you mean "neocons are fascists in Brooks Brothers suits"? I don't like neocons or Brooks Brothers suits either,
for that matter. I guess I didn't think the remark required
(deserved?) an answer. If I got the wrong reply, please
let me know and I will try to respond.
