Q: I can't stop eating sugar in China

Sugar is good for health for some reasons. I didn't used to have a sweet tooth. Now 4 years in China has changed it. While walking on Nanjing Rd in Shanghai, I can never resist my urge to have a cake and a coffee while looking at the beaituful ladies walking around. It had definately made me feel younger. I do miss my old sugarless days when my wallet was fuller. What about you?

Brick Top: You're always gonna have problems lifting a body in one piece. Apparently the best thing to do is cut up a corpse into six pieces and pile it all together.

 

Sol: Would someone mind telling me, who are you?

Brick Top: And when you got your six pieces, you gotta get rid of them, because it's no good leaving it in the deep freeze for your mum to discover, now is it? Then I hear the best thing to do is feed them to pigs. You got to starve the pigs for a few days, then the sight of a chopped-up body will look like curry to a pisshead. You gotta shave the heads of your victims, and pull the teeth out for the sake of the piggies' digestion. You could do this afterwards, of course, but you don't want to go sievin' through pig shit, now do you? They will go through bone like butter. You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence the expression, "as greedy as a pig".

 

Vinny: Well, thank you for that. That's a great weight off me mind. Now, if you wouldn't mind telling me who the fuck you are, apart from someone who feeds people to pigs of course? 

 

Brick Top: Do you know what "nemesis" means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. Personified in this case by an 'orrible cunt... me. surprise

Stiggs:

The 'orrible caaant (edited because someone here made a snarky comment about language from a meme I posted once) line always makes me laugh.

I can tell you read my c&p ... dialog, he he

 

What hassle? Think about going into the library 25-years ago and search ...

 

Enter 'Snatch 2000' - 'year of the release' into the search (I recommend DuckDuckGo 'cause no tracking (you) with the free Vnp at Opera OS) ... and voila ...

Don't miss 'Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels 1998' while you are at it .. by the same writer (Guy Ritchie).

Next, for the free d/l, one should have FrostWire, p2p (peer-to-peer) app... and you'll also need a remote hard drive for storage of all these freebies.

Mine holds over 150 movies, some 100 hours of music ( .. what paying for it at i-Tunes??), brazillion books ... and audiobooks ( for me lazy arse ) and more ... all 'purchased' free of charge.

Sometimes, I am thinking I deserved jail time for all these free d/l ... 

The other way, one could find the title of the movie is to enter one sentence of the posted quote into the search ... and you'll get everything about movie quote came of..

Matter a fact, anything you don't understand and you've never heard about it just stick it into the search engine and you'll get an explanation ...

 

I'll might open new course on ''How to ... puter's search engines..". I would never think, it's only me who knows ... how to ..., he he

Here is the new quote:

 

Rory Breaker: If the milk turns out to be sour, I ain't the kind of pussy to drink it. You know what I mean, Nick?

 

Copy sentence even without the name of the quote's speaker ... into the search and see what you'll get ... or enter only speaker's name into the search ...

Sometimes it's interesting to read quotes even before you see the movie ... Write 'title of the movie' into search and add 'quotes' as 'Pulp Fiction quotes' ...

@Dude: now think, I am talking to you .. with next quote ...I am NOT!, he he.

 

Rory Breaker: If you hold back anything, I'll kill ya. If you bend the truth or I think you're bending the truth, I'll kill ya. If you forget anything, I'll kill ya. In fact, you're gonna have to work very hard to stay alive, Nick. Now, do you understand everything I've just said? 'Cause if you don't, I'll kill ya!

he he he ...

I wasn't talking about the bank business over the puter. That's PIA and I rarely do it. I don't even have a bank card for online banking ... since China,  ... I always find somebody with bank card and I stick cash for the purchase into my pocket.

Lucchese ignored my complaint 'cause online purchase was made by Chinese Bank card with Chinese owner's name. Manager at Dental firm in Bijie, Guizhou, completed boots purchase for me and I just handed him a cash. They mailed 2 different sizes boots 'cause it was destined for Chineser according to the payee's details ...

Once, Lucchese got phone call from BBB, they knew they are dealing with the westerner ...

No worries in Cabo San Lucas or Ensenada ..

OK, I forgot sumtin' when you said ' ... another one who remembers library and cards ..'.

My biggest problem at libraries was 'returning of the books'. I could never remember, I must bring books back. I was notorious. Then, one day librarian said 'unless you bring books back, you can't get new books ...', so I had to bring all borrowed books back ..

Now, laptop and search engines: I got my first Mac in 2002. It was called G4 and I didn't really know what to do with it. I was in SF, using free wi-fi at one coffee shop in Embarcadero. First Q I entered into GOOG search was: "When is sunny in SF?". I run out of dry shoes 'cause it was purring some 7 weeks non-stop.

A month later, I was in one RadioShack, talking to one younger employee ... and since I had Nokia with so called 'Vision' plan, he showed me how to connect my phone's Vision to G4. Vision plan was an Internet access through the mobile, year 2002. Phone Co. was Sprint PCS and Vision cost me $10 extra per month. However, I couldn't read much from my Nokia, so RadioShack guy showed me how to d/l driver for Nokia, and after that I could be online with G4 through my Nokia Vision even while ridding a bicycle. I could be online anywhere, what was quite an achievement in 2002. I knew people who would bet at that time, I cannot be online with G4 anywhere I want. Think about I would open G4 with Wi-Fi turned off ... and suddenly I was at Yahoo News ... through Nokia in my pocket. Many people in SF, who saw that they thought I am some kind of magician, he he.

Since I got G4, I tried just about anything online especially free online stuff was my highest priority. I started with quitting of purchasing a newspapers, but reading it instead for free over the puter.

I was also very reluctant at that time to pay for the Internet access. I could drink single espresso for 5-hours while sitting at the hot-spot and my 'rule' was ''Internet is an upgrade from radio signal and my grands had never paid for the news and music through the radio. I ain't paying for the Internet access, either."

In 2004 or 5, SF got free Internet access through the whole city and in UK & EU were charging fee for the same. 

I miss USA ...

Are you buying this "sugar" from a very thin shifty looking dude who smells funky and talks to himself? The cravings may decrease if you try a new supplier such as Jusco or Walmart.

Rory Breaker: Don't "uh" me Greek boy! How is it that your fucking stupid soon-to-be-dead friends thought they might be able to steal my cannabis and then sell it back to me? Is this a declaration of war? Is this some white cunt's joke that black cunts don't get?

I believe that Melbourne is the second most populous Greek city in the world, after Athens of course. But there are lots of people of Greek and Italian descent. There was a big immigration push in the 1960s when skilled workers were needed for construction ect. They are more Aussie than many Aussies. The poster people of immigrants integrating. And they brought their food. :-)

Tzatziki sauce, ... sarma, baklava is all I can recall. Turks also proclaim baklava as theirs ... and they make sarma, too.

Matter of fact, Greek and Turks cuisines are very similar.

And Greeks proclaim half of the Istanbul as used-to-be-Greekish ... It was big uproar around the world a month ago when Erdo turned famous Christian church from 11th century in Istanbul into jamii .. pron. 'dzami' .. i.e. mosque.

 https://www.christianpost.com/news/turkeys-erdogan-orders-historic-church-be-turned-into-mosque-for-muslim-prayers.html

 

Greek Embassy on Istanbul's Taksim Square is an empty building ...

We can't forget Cyprus ... Greeks and Turks dislike each other since Homer and Trojan war ...

Was in Athens in 90-tis for some 6-months. At that time, car alarms were novelty ... When you are in Athens DT, you can see Boeing 7-whatever-7 lands and takes off very near ... some 100 - 200 m above the ground or even lower.

Car alarms get set-off by the vibration .. if you touch or shake the car, alarm goes off ...

Car alarm also gets triggered by the vibration in the air ... Always when plane would approach or take-off from the airport whole Athens would start to bleep ... Not 5 alarms bleep. Imagine all car alarms bleep in radius of 200m. The ones bleep further away, you can't hear it, but they all bleeped at any 'happening' on international airport.  In 1989 .. angel

Whatever car owner was near-by was running toward his car with curse word
