My parents had a selection of canes. Skinny ones fat ones long ones short ones loud ones quiet ones.

Every time we hid then they had more.

I was determined to never listen to them.

But thankfully my brains has a bit more common sense once I got past 30.

21brandon21: They need to introduce the death penalty and harsher crimes for these cockroaches. We need to implement the Thai System for prisons. Prisons should be a hellhole not a holiday in. They get better treatment than people in rest homes.

P.S. If you get caught stealing you should get your hand chopped off imo. (3 chances to be fair)


LOL, man oh man. 

Do you think the people who commit these crimes give a toss about the consequences? It's the same with the whole antismacking debacle. The people who beat their kids within an inch of their lives aren't thinking of the consequences, so therefore the law which was originally intended to stop those people has little or no affect. 



Debacle? The law's had great effect in bringing to a end cases where people would beat their kids with riding crops, plead it to be reasonable in the circumstances to a jury of morons, then get off scot-free. No more, thankfully.


Only rich kids can afford to be hit with riding crops.


My mother whooped me with hers once or twice. Didn't do me any lasting damage.


Did she actually have a horse, or, well you know.....

You are right. But by clever I was in that context referring to guile/deviousness, not raw intelligence.

He could still be cleverer than everyone else despite not being empathetic or self-aware. For example, HFA people such as those with Aspergers can be extremely clever but often lack self awareness or empathy.

The prefect solution would be for the SAS to find him and quietly 'vanish' him. He will not be missed.


How's that?  Make him drink some NapiSan?

Well, Drano would be better.

DravidDavid: Apparently he did "significant research" in order to come to Brazil as his best option.  Why didn't he pick Mexico or something, haha.  That's what they do in the movies!


Too many surprise vampires.


Not to mention the chupacabra's everywhere.

Not in Zihuatanejo.

Imagine if this guy had fines to pay, according to ministry of justice they can stop you from travelling if you have unpaid fines.

http://www.justice.govt.nz/fines/fines/what-happens-if-i-dont-pay

You have to ask, if they can stop someone form travelling who has a fine to pay how can they let people like this get through.
