Re: Russian Opposition Leader and Putin critic Alexei Navalny in a Coma

Russians are a strange bunch.

They have no problem outsting their leader in violent revolution, but then they put the same type of leader back in power.

It's like a victim of domestic violence who always goes back to the abuser.

Re: The Tobago Ferry Boat thread

These boats should never be making a 3-4 hour journey each way especially over the bocas.

A proper port set up in Toco and Crown Point would have had an upfront cost, but paid back itself easily in maintenance and fuel costs.
