Jul 20th 2011 10:40AM It's not like the Australian tax payers just gave away billions of dollars to bail out industries where the benefit to the economy was zero and the benefit to the economy was also zero. The Australian government spent between $3 and 5 million in hopes of a $300 million return, and it didn't happen. As for the real cost, the question is how much money did the Oprah visit generate from the U.S., Canada and Britain to stimulate and support Australia's tourism economy? And if it failed, why? What was it about the show that missed the mark? Which demographics are the tourism industry failing to attract?
Jul 16th 2011 6:48PM I think it's a matter of formality. If I were going to a patio party among friends and wore a sundress, I might skip the hose all together. But if I'm going to a 7 pm Black Tie wedding, I will be wearing the proper undergarments, from the right bra... to pantyhose. Personally, I like silk hose with a garter belt. Those "thigh highs" never stay up on me, and unless I need some superdy-duper foundation pantyhose to make me look like a size 8 instead of my real size 12, I like to skip the panty part. It's just cooler (as in less hot) and easier to move in a garter with hose. Of course, these days I'm more likely to attend a gathering wearing a muumuu, but my opinion normally is what I said above.
Jul 16th 2011 6:27PM I don't travel any more. I can't afford to buy two seats for my huge arse, I'll be stuck with the additional "fat taxes" in Hungary, New York and all over the world, and there is nothing left I want to see or do. It's just as well. By the by, if one stays at the New York, New York in Las Vegas, do they have to pay the extra fat taxes on sodas & such like in the real New York, New York?
Jul 15th 2011 6:05PM Story of my life. He's single, has a good work ethic, common sense, likes to have fun and I'll bet he even has 4 REAL tires on his car, and he's young enough to be my son....
Jul 8th 2011 6:30PM An undisciplined, spoiled kid can do more messin and gommin than a pack of wild animals. Just imagine that multiplied by 9. Not for me, thanks.
Jul 6th 2011 6:23PM Aleph? Damn. Well, she's done stuck his little foot in it now, poor kid. Can't you just hear it? Aleph, Aleph, Aleph, Right leph! Aleph my heart... in Saaan Fraaan... cisscoo! Ah, and please tell me his last name does not rhyme with centipied.
Jul 5th 2011 4:40PM I'm too old for any of the beauty trends any more. Besides, between my halfassed eyesight and my shaky hands, I would give myself pink eye.
Jul 5th 2011 4:37PM Maybe it's just me, but it seems like 43-years-old is a bit late to be filing a paternity suit.
Jul 5th 2011 4:31PM From the headline I thought she had cut if all off, and since I'm thinking of doing just that, I wanted to see if I could get an inspiring idea from her new 'do. Guess the joke's on me. Story of my life.
Jul 2nd 2011 12:41PM I know Arnold is a randy old goat, and he did the unthinkable by having a kid with that eyesore of a maid, but does one really bad deed trump 25 years of happiness, building a partnership, raising great kids, enjoying a wide circle of friends and having a solid, loving, interesting extended family? I'm always sorry to see a marriage end and a family broken, especially ones that have endured for so long.
