Re: Starbucks

You are absolutely right that the government has here the duty to forbid single used plastics, foam cups etc. What should the penalty be for possession of these forbidden items? If a person has several of them do they get charged with trafficking? They should be f*ckin' killed, man. No trial, no ju...

Re: Starbucks

A bit off-topic, but I just came across this video published today by the BBC on the Sikkimese village of Lachung, where they have banned all single use plastic stuff:

Re: Starbucks

...you degenerates :tongue: :lol: for the record, I have never ever had one single coffe-to-go (or tea-to-go or whatever) in my entire life, I drink my tea in the house from a re-usable ceramic cup :tongue: As for banning single use cups, sure, that would be the right thing to do, but that's a poli...

Re: Starbucks

Hmmm... not the biggest fan of Starbucks' policies either, but in this case I don't really see the point. Are other cafés giving away reusable cups for free? I think 2,50€ is a fair price, especially since you get a discount of 30 Cents for yout beverage if you bring your own reusable cup, that mean...

Re: How do you know when a friendship is over?

When a friend keeps overstepping your boundaries even though you ask him/her not to, and it's really painful to you, it's time to distance yourself. Doesn't necessarily mean you have to completely break up with that person, but if you've met with that friend once a week, maybe turn it down to once i...

Re: Readability of Usernames

well, if you'd actually bother to read my opening post, you would notice that it applies to usernames in Kyrillic, Greek, or Tibetan characters as well: ...my suggestion is: could people with usernames that are not in the English alphabet add a transscription to their name? besides, I'm neither whin...

Re: Readability of Usernames

I don't know if this discussion about Simon's motives has anything to do with me, so I'm keeping out of it. To avoid misunderstandings I'd like to make clear that all I'm asking is that people with usernames in other than the english alphabet add an english transscription to their username . That sh...

Re: Readability of Usernames

Yes, like Simon said, it has nothing to do with real names. Neither did I say anything against usernames in Asian characters. And of course it's not inevitable or something I can't live with. It's just a matter of politeness.

Readability of Usernames

Hi all, so there are some users with usernames in Asian characters, which is perfectly fine, but, being unable to read these characters, - I don't know how to address you, (of course I can copy&paste your name, but I still have a feeling I don't know your name) - and if there are more it will be inc...

Thanks, Terma, I should have thought about that! You're right, it looks very well edited, so my paper version is available.

Re: Beginner Practice Books?

Is the kindle version well edited? (I'm asking because I recently fell for a kindle "ebook" that had the text as low resolution scanned images :( ) I prefer ebooks, too. If anyone would like to have my paper book I'd be happy to give it away for the price of the kindle version plus shipping costs. I...
