A katoy perspective on being drafted into the Army

Post by yoursTruly » 03 Oct 2011 18:30

An old article, but an interesting predicament.

“No transgender would ever want to be in the army,” Prempreeda said. “They’ll cut your hair off. They’ll destroy your femininity. You will do everything you can to avoid it.”

The cashew is in the same family as poison ivy....

Post by yoursTruly » 08 Dec 2011 08:42

The cashew, being in the same family as poison ivy, can cause a similar allergic reaction. The "nut" is not a nut at all, but rather a "accessory fruit". Makes a good wine too, as visitors to "little" Ko Chang (off Ranong) know.

Oops, sorry about my stuttering. I had to reedit the subject line because the space allowed is too damned small. On the other hand, "nobody was nobody" describes quite well people who aren't allowed to save their queen because they can't touch her.
