Flying from Europe to Maldives is 10K more than Flying from US ? I am confused.

The post was about flying from to US to N-Asia, via Europe (with a possible stop there)....which is 10.000 miles less than flying from the US to Europe.

Shameless...

Funny how many of them practically beg forgiveness in advance for pimping the cards again.

Bring your rubber-lined coat so you can score enough food then to make it through the rest of the day.

I am thinking about starting one. I just found out how to maximize my UR points on beer runs - buy shell giftcards and purchase overpriced beer at large shell gas station. Mine even sells semi crappy wine.
[Moderator edit]

PS: I also found out how to maximize UR points if you have pet penguin living in your bathtub. It involves prepaid shell cards and buying lots of ice. But I will not give out any more information for free.

+10

Well said... the conversation was turning a bit personal and blogger bashing.

Thank You

So....we can say this blog's post totally sucked but can not say this blogger sucks? Why impede the flow? It has taken me years to learn to reply with multiple quotes (ok I am slow) how do you expect others to take the time to learn to embed links for every post we want to make here? THIS is what prevents people from posting...why bother?

Maybe I missed today's fireworks...Up to yesterday I thought the conversations was fine.

Well, never mind

I despise the censoring unless the posts were spam and/or vulgar name attacks! There, I feel better now
