Hmmmm, then maybe it's time to shut this down. I've left this one open so you guys can post here as you like but if that's your take on it, then there's probably no need for this one either.

I've stated this in the past:  The forum worldz do not need another forum with three whole posters!

The current state of affairs are bad enough as it is...  Last thing needed is another half-dozen shit forums appearing on the scene.

Will you eventually emigrate? Good luck with your elections. I'm learning Welsh.  Cofion .....last word.
Mmmmm, maybe. I'm re-thinking the idea of moving there....this last trip was fun but also pretty wearing.

The heat and humidity were dreadful. The traffic in and around Phnom Penh has gone from "mostly okay" to "mostly awful". There are about 10 times the number of cars there used to be...the roads were never meant for this many cars and it shows. Prices for nearly everything are going up up up. Land, food, rent, clothes- all that stuff is still pretty affordable, but definitely more expensive than they used to be.

On the upside, the general infrastructure and economy have improved significantly. You can buy almost anything you want with a few exceptions. Still can't get a decent bagel here for love nor money, lol. If Amazon delivered to Cambodia, life would instantly become much better.

The availability of medical care has improved a lot but is still kinda spotty. The new developments like Diamond Island (see another link here) are super upscale and as full-featured as anything you'd find in North America. I probably couldn't afford to live there, lol. There are also loads of new malls that are the equal of anything here.

There's also construction of new buildings and infrastructure everywhere...every street has something being renovated or built new. In 10 or 20 years it'll be amazing. There's also a new airport in the works and the old airport has been fixed up quite a bit too. There are finally places you can get a decent burger (and lots of places now exist where you can get great pizza).

A lot of stuff is still "faux" some of the chain burger joints have menus with 50 things on them, but when you get there they only have 2 or 3 of the items available. The rest is "No have..."

So I don't know...I'm reconsidering, but it's still very possible that we'll move there someday.
And that's the last word on Cambodia. :)

In Phnom Penh? Wow is my last word.
Yep, we bought it and are hoping to buy one of the houses next door to it as well. We'd cut a big doorway and have a nice sized place. And that is my last word.

Looks nice, very elegant.

I'm going to Phnom Penh in September for a few weeks. I want to see the house we bought, lol.

As you didn't have the last word, I'll save it for mine. I can't open it either. Just  google headlands hotel llandudno.

Nothing much new with me, apart from the fact that I've been diagnosed with a cranky panky .Last word.
We're going to be visiting Cambodia, Laos, and maybe Thailand in a couple of months. I had LASIK, which I highly recommend. And I got the last word, lol.

I have the last word.

Good to see you again, Chief. :) 

As another year of Thanksgiving is upon us, we ask ourselves are we doing enough to help the Native American people regain what was stolen from  us many years ago. Progress has been made in some aspects, such as the diversion of the pipeline in South Dakota. However, how many issues have still gone unresolved? The Swaysom Tribe will one day get the land that was taken away from them. Our future generations will be able to enjoy the land that our people held for so long. The white man stole it from us but we will regain it. We are united and our cause is just. As you try to enjoy Thanksgiving this year, remember all of the crimes that were committed against the Native American people. I have the utmost faith that we will regain our land and at the Swayson Tribe will reclaim their native homeland. I ask that you take the time to consider being on the right side of history and Unite with us to reclaim all that was taken. We must stand up and take back our land.

Shia LaBeouf launched Version 3.0 of his plagued He Will Not Divide Us exhibit, originally intended as a four-year-long running protest of President Trump, but it barely lasted a day before Internet detectives conquered it using an astonishingly skillful scientific approach.

LaBeouf and his co-creators erected a white flag emblazoned with the words “He Will Not Divide Us” in an undisclosed location and trained a webcam on it, which he planned to stream continually at the website dedicated to the project.

The flag could have been located anywhere on the planet, and no geographical markers were present in the skywards-facing shot, but this would still prove not enough to stump the community of users on 4Chan and 8Ch boards who teamed up to pinpoint its location and sabotage it in an ultimate contest of “Capture the Flag.”

According to reports and conversations on the boards, viewers discovered contrails from airplanes flying through the scene, and were subsequently able to deduce the general coordinates of the flag to be in Green County, Tennessee, using flight radar and tracking.

A user then embarked to the region in their car, sounding the horn regularly until viewers monitoring the livestream heard it and further narrowed down the search region.

Finally, users employed analysis of celestial mechanics to determine the tightest space in which the exhibit could be pinpointed.

Users deployed to the location, lowered the flag, and replaced it with a bright red “Make American Great Again” hat and t-shirt depicting Donald Trump and Pepe the Frog.

The entire operation took just one day and a night to execute.

Soon after, the live-stream was disabled. At the time of this writing, it had recently come back online and displays a bare flagpole.

Serena Williams has more than $70 million dollars in career prize money. She and her sister Venus once bragged they could beat any man outside the world’s top 200. The challenge was accepted by Karsten Braasch, a German ranked 203. Before the matches, Braasch played a round of golf in the morning, drank a couple of beers, smoked a few cigarettes and then beat Serena 6-1 and Venus 6-2.

Braasch clearly proved he was a better player and deserved to be paid more. Serena said after the game: "I didn’t know it would be that hard. I hit shots that would have been winners on the women’s tour and he got them easily." Braasch’s career prize money? Less than $1.5 million.

UPS truck drivers don't take left turns, and despite this usually resulting in longer route, they are saving millions of dollars in fuel costs. From a report:

The company decided on eliminating left turns (or right turns in left-hand driving countries such as India) wherever possible after it found that drivers have to sit idly in the trucks while waiting to take the left turn to pass through traffic. So, it created an algorithm that eliminated left turns from drivers' routes even if meant a longer journey.

This meant that drivers do not have to wait in traffic to take a left turn and can take the right turn at junctions. Of course, the algorithm does not entirely eliminate left turns, but the number of left turns taken by UPS trucks is less than 10 percent of all turns made. Turns out that UPS was right -- the idea really paid off. In 2005, a year after it announced that it will minimize left turns, the company said that the total distance covered by its 96,000 trucks was reduced by 747,000km, and 190,000 litres of fuel had been saved.

In 2011, Bob Stoffel, a UPS Senior Vice President, told Fortune that the company had reduced distance traveled by trucks by 20.4 million miles, and reduced CO2 emissions by 20,000 metric tons, by not taking left turns. A recent report by The Independent says that the total reduction in distance traveled by UPS trucks now stands at 45.8 million miles, and there are 1,100 fewer trucks in its fleet because of the algorithm. Even by conservative estimates, that's tens of millions of dollars of savings in fuel costs.
