    The Nadal Wimbledon magic went up in smoke once journeyman Rosol exposed him on grass, didn't it …

    Nadal clinched the museum to put a checkmark on his CV. Not to ruin the ambience of your room plastered with shirtless Rosol posters all over the walls.

    Off court, Lucie Šafářová's personality is pleasantly peasantry. She is strangely evocative of centuries past.

    I like Japan. The theiving culture of the Anglo-Franco-Germanic world disgusts me. Can’t go to Russia because I have family there. Don’t know where else to go besides Korea.

    If they are in Moscow, go to St Petersburg. Japan is a good place for exile, especially if you speak the language.

    Federer's 97 sq. in racquet did not win him any one slam. Time to revert to a 90 sq. in.

    There are times when reverting back to their old ways could be energizing, refreshing and even grand slam winning!:D Besides, winning is the only thing for him now, I'm sure he loves being in the finals but he'd rather win. 2nd round or finals tantamounts to losing all the same.

    Beat this reason for why my flight was late today. I was talking off from Gibraltar and the airport operators fired some thing to scare away a bunch of birds sitting at one end of the runway. Anyway it appeared that one of these fire crackers did not go off, so after much deliberation they called in the bomb disposal crew to remove this unused ordinance. It was deemed too dangerous for human hands and so a special bomb removal robot was called in to save the day. Time sitting in the aeroplane on the tarmac 90 minutes. The funny thing is we were the only flight to take off all day.

    What's the craziest airport delay you have experienced?

    ^^I would bet my bottom dollar on Trump becoming the POTUS provided he sports a clean shaven SKULL and Bones instead of the rug he is sporting [I'm mindful he's not a fan of Dubya and he thinks Wharton is betterer than Yale]!:D

    Hasn't been a baldie since Ike. A bearded POTUS may happen first. America loves a mop on top but not that bird's nest.

    Wharton is a business school only. Yale produces scholars in many fields. One failure with silver spoon up his nose Dubya shouldn't tarnish their reputation.

    He also likes to point out the superiority of Wharton over Harvard [where Dubya had his MBA] from time to time. Well, I don't see him ditching his magic carpet anytime soon though.:D

    Accidentally I pressed on the words "in a Sureshsian vortex" and Google maps tried to locate it for me.

    Disappointing to say the least that they could not find it. We need to work on highlighting this dangerous mega zone of gas combustion and spray.

    Its center is in San Diego, a danger zone where TSV-approved hazmat gear is required, butt it radiates outwards as far as Uranus, where its strength dissipates in an inverse ratio to the amount of sureshsianisms consumed.:p

    By that logic Raafa hit puberty very late, well that explains Roger and Djoker demonstrating their fertility unlike Raafa.

    For some absurd reason I became brutally drunk yesterday and woke up on my sister's couch.

    Japan would be a perfect place for an eternal exile if I didn’t have to leave every 3 months. With my checkered past, I already feel like I am testing my luck every time I land there. I need a real visa, whether that means marriage, school, or square job.

    Russia is off limits pending resolution of family disputes.

    Seoul is nice in the wintertime.

    Is there really such thing as an absurd reason to have a drink? There are so many valid ones:

    - happy, must celebrate
    - sad, need to feel better

    - so cold outside, need some fuel to warm up
    - too hot outside, can’t do anything productive anyway

    - having a meal, so should have a drink to go along with it
    - nothing to eat, so at least I should have a drink

    - no work, perfect time to drink
    - lots of stressful work, need a strong drink

    Based on your profound knowledge of Nadal’s sperm, could you also comment on some of its organoleptic properties? I think many of us on the forum would appreciate that.

    You are trivializing Nadal’s injuries by dragging them down to the plateau of Federer’s lack of talent.

    Oda Sakunosuke is described in Japan as one of the burai ha, or »hooligan school« of writers. Working before and during World War II, these writers sought to create an underground literature in opposition to the traditional flavour favoured by the militaristic government. Depicting unflattering realities rather than the exemplary ideals, the author focused on Japan's hustlers, bunglers and misfits. Yet underlying the tales, his sympathy for the characters he portrays is sensed. These short stories capture the essence of the Osaka temperament, its hedonism, wry humour and lust for life.

    Also, Osamu Dazai liked to drink.

    At least it is not the much circulated, ''hi i am so and so, i have USD30 million parked in the bank unclaimed...if you are a willing partner, we could arrive at an agreed 70-30 split; a 50-50 if you can facilitate within 24 hours...i'll throw in a beautiful perfect ''10'' as an added bonus...''

    I just had a croquette at the cantine. Thinking it would be hot, I took a careful bite. Much to my surprise it was rather tepid.

    Thanks for this. Never heard of these two, but will read up online.

    Tend to be skeptical about historical accounts of any sort. I was educated in Russia, US, and Japan, including WW2 history. The only sensible conclusion I was able to draw from my studies was that history books are full of garbage.

    China teaches an interesting version of history in its schools. Knowledge of this version of history is useful in understanding both the domestic and foreign policies. Currently, Beijing is setting records for pollution.

    Apparently, the smog is so bad it's the equivalent of smoking 40 cigarettes per day.

    I use to sometimes have a picnic lunch at Kronborg Castle in Helsingør. It is a good place to look across the sea and yell insults at Sweden.

    Kournikova defined class and talent on the WTA before Safin exemplified those qualities on the ATP.
