Real men order Vindaloo hot. I went through a phase when I was younger in search of the hottest in the city. Now I swear it would kill me as my tolerance is down to white guy that can handle Canadian spicy.

Just got a text from my kid telling me there's another kid in school today wearing a Nazi uniform.

I'm sure he's just a harmless WWII buff.

What? Yer kidding, right? Even on Halloween that is NOT cool. How old are these kids? That should be an immediate suspension with expelling being the next option. Mandatory evaluation time with a councillor should also be involved especially if this is a younger kid. A younger kid I could see just not understanding what the Nazis did in terms of genocide.

*EDIT* BTW I am not a prude and Hugo Boss did design some awesome looking uniforms. I also don't think some symbols should be removed from video games or movies. It was what it was and pretending something did not happen or not showing the symbols is not the answer. However when one put on the attire of a Nazi that becomes a problem. I'll shut up as we do not talk politics here but I'm blown away that a kid could wear something like that to school and think it was OK. If there were parents involved that knew then oh boy...

No joke, apparently. My wife's friend's kid already knew about him. Gonna check into this further.....

All outrage aside, must be sad to have such low self-esteem to feel you need the attention....and hopefully it's mostly just for that.

Yeah eating hot curries and drinking lots of beer equates to macho bullshit.

Women find that really attractive by the way.

If one of our princes can dress as a Nazi I'm pretty sure that a school kids going to get away with it.

Actually I'm going to blame the parents on this one.

Fun to watch though.

You really are crabby lately... TBH when I was after the hottest Vindaloo I was single and always went to the restaurant on my own for takeaway and never once on a date nor did I brag about it to a single woman. I may have occasionally had a beer with it but maybe one in 5 times while I sat alone in my apartment watching torrented movies because I was pretty broke then.

It's all good

Kingfisher is actually the best beer for me with a spicy curry. Yeah I know the origin of the beer and all the Indian restaurants sell it but it really does seem to the the best one to go with. A stout or port which is my usual go to does not work so well with a curry... Tsingtao also does a pretty good job.

Have to agree with Kingfisher. Either that or Sapporo.

Sapporo is my other go-to for curries plus it's got one hell of a sturdy can that's pretty cool.

While I agree with this I will forgo making any comments as I don't want to get in trouble for going too political.

The plot thickens....
Spoke with my daughter. From what I can make out he's quite likely wearing something more like a Wehrmacht uniform with Iron Cross, etc. Regardless he's known as "the Nazi." Apparently he also caries a framed portrait of a Soviet era figure on his person. Sounds more weird than dangerous.

Probably a lot more sketchy figures lurking around out of uniform.

Might be me just being paranoid but too many times after some horrific event the one thing that seems to come up is people saying "He was a bit of an odd loner guy with out many friends.

I better be careful as I'm sure many of the people I went to school with probably said that about me. Actually mom once mentioned how the mother of some other kids in the neighborhood commented on thinking I was a bit odd, never in trouble and not hanging around with other kids like her's did.

The BMW of course has a "service" indicator that comes up on the instrument cluster which means you need to bring it in to the dealer or have your OCD mind driven nuts by it. So dropped off the bike today and will find out tomorrow what the damage is cost-wise. She's running fine so hopefully just an oil change and maybe a front tire. The 10 K service came in at around $800.

On the bright side the service manager (Andrew, awesome guy) mentioned there was a recall on a brake component they will take care of at the same time. I will say after riding the bike for about 3 years now it is a great scooter and I recommend it to anyone that wants a scoot with tons of storage that will through your ass back against the backrest when you twist the throttle. For a 650 it has a lot of oomph.

Oh I was thinking something like that

But seeing as how I winter ride I figure I may as well get it serviced anyway.

Andrew told me something interesting. I mentioned the bike has started hesitating a little on throttle response and he said it was probably the fact the gas stations have switched over the the winter gas lately. The timing sounds about right.

So my German girl is at the dealer and my Russian girl is on her way. Not sure if my Italian girl all alone in the parking spot is lonely or just happy to be rid of them for a bit.

What a small world we live in. I have been called the Nazi before. Mainly because I'm from South America and people think that South America is Argentina.

Portuguese-speaking Nazis? Hmm...

Yeah, I'd heard Argentina was a bit more German after the war....

BTW, principal called me back to explain what was up...and my stupid cell phone failed to let me know I had messages, so only following up today. Looks like another round of phone tag.

I hear you can get good sausage and schnitzel in Argentina. The military didn't seem to gain much though when Great Britain spanked them not all that long ago and proved payback is a bitch.

Let us know how the call goes, will ya?

Years ago I heard a 'knock, knock' joke that was really funny. Lets face it usually they are pretty lame. But this one was great, and I made a mental note to remember it. As time went by it disappeared from my brain. I've tried Dr Google but its just the usual boring ones and its pissing me off long term that I can't remember it.

Individual porcelain bowls replacing the mens urinal trough. A trough might hold say 6 or 7 men, now there are 2 or 3 individual bowls in its place. At half time/intermission at a public event the queue for the Mens now is just as long as the Womens.
Also, some individual bowls are positioned lower than others, for the 'well hung'.

Yes but even if you were a transgender from a male to a female you'd still use that prefix.

Or would you ?

Male or Female? I last herd there are over 250 genders now, I am totally confused now and don't know how to address anyone new I meet, so I just avoid meeting anyone new.
