  1. Hendrix was ‘da man. Amazing talent. Known all over the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and many other countries. Hated that he died so young. Gone much too early....like many young talented musicians and singers back then.
  2. Maybe the first time he’s been out of his state, let alone out of the U.S. Hope he get’s kicked back to the U.S. and never leaves the U.S. again. What an ignorant jerk.
  3. Their first few records, instruments were played by studio musicians.. that much is correct. However all the Monkees could play instruments and did so for their following recordings and live on stage. Nezmith and Dolenz played guitar, and Dolenze also took drum lessons and became an accomplished drummer. Tork could and did play guitar, keyboards and banjo. Jones learned to play drums and guitar quite well, and a custom bass guitar was specially built for him. Jones also played other percussion instruments.
  4. Putin developed high tech hyper-sonic nuclear cruise missile nukes only in response to western nations ..U.S., British, French and Israeli aggression in the world. Now the U.S., British, French and Israeli aggressors are upset, because they don't have hyper-sonic cruise missile nukes yet.
  5. It's all that war mongerer Trump's fault. Blame Trump. Russia and Putin are peace loving people bothering no one.
  6. Can't speak for Europe... however in the U.S. and Canada there are lots of jumpers. But they usually choose high bridges... only a relatively few go off of high buildings..... as far as I know. (The papers try to keep it quiet.) In Toronto, going down to the subway (tube) and jumping onto the track as the train comes in is more common than people would like to admit. The train drivers usually need time off and counselling after seeing a person jump right in front of them and witnessing the horrifying messy results. However.. close to me in Niagara Falls, a few people have jumped off the Skylon Tower.... One of them had a huge loss in a Niagara Falls casino. Makes a real mess that has to be mopped up on the hard surface below. The Skylon is pretty high.
  7. Could I still get measles if I am fully vaccinated? A: Very few people—about three out of 100—who get two doses of measles vaccine will still get measles if exposed to the virus. Experts aren’t sure why. It could be that their immune systems didn’t respond as well as they should have to the vaccine. But the good news is, fully vaccinated people who get measles are much more likely to have a milder illness. And fully vaccinated people are also less likely to spread the disease to other people, including people who can’t get vaccinated because they are too young or have weakened immune systems. Q: Do I ever need a booster vaccine? A: No. CDC considers people who received two doses of measles vaccine as children according to the U.S. vaccination schedule protected for life, and they do not ever need a booster dose. Adults need at least one dose of measles vaccine, unless they have evidence of immunity. Adults who are going to be in a setting that poses a high risk for measles transmission should make sure they have had two doses separated by at least 28 days. These adults include students at post-high school education institutions, healthcare personnel, and international travelers. If you’re not sure whether you were vaccinated, talk with your doctor. More information about who needs measles vaccine. Source: Centers for Disease Control CDC
  8. In the list of vaccines against diseases, 84% protection five years after the shot is still very, very good. If you contracted the disease at that point anyways, that level of protection would probably mean you would have a much milder case of JE which would result in your chances of dying being almost zero. Kind of like the Flu vaccine shot. Better chance of not getting the Flu. But if you get the Flu anyways, it still gives you some protection and your case of Flu won’t be near as bad. I would get a vaccine shot even if it gave me only 50% protection. It’s better than nothing, and would lessen the severity of the disease in the event I caught the disease anyways.
  9. Please read more carefully. He didn’t mention eradicating Malaria. He was talking about eradicating mosquitos.
  10. Careful of dizzy spells and thinking you might pass out etc. I had three over the period of a week and finally decided to get checked out. After treadmill stress test. ECG’s Nuclear tracer scan, CT (CAT) scan, and heart catheterization with dye x-ray etc.....turns out I have cardiac arteries almost totally blocked. I’m going in for bypass surgery on March 4. Wish me luck. They say that usually the first sign of this problem is the person falls dead or has a heart attack with massive damage. I was lucky to only have dizzy spells and decide to get them checked out by the professionals. My heart itself has had no damage yet. So now I’m taking tiny blood pressure lowering pills, a cholesterol lowering pill, and an 81 mg aspirin each day. I’m sure the surgery will prove interesting. Careful with your heart and cardiac arteries folks. I’m told that most people have no idea what’s been building up inside them quietly over the years and decades...until it’s too late.
  11. Get serious.... In a country like Thailand or Cambodia or Myanmar you really expect to more than scratch the surface in getting rid of literally billions of mosquito breeding places ?? That’s where I get my 3% - 5% .....And that’s being generous. Unless you establish a total dictatorship and force everyone to work in mosquito breeding places eradication squads. With threatened execution if failure to comply. In that case, you maybe might take care of 35% to 45% of the breeding places. Are you a comedian??? 555555
  12. Haven’t been there since “rejuvenated”. So I have no idea how much or little it might be changed. I hope for the better. Might be going back to the Phil by the end of the year. Have to have triple or quadruple bypass surgery first. Have to survive that and wake up and then heal and get my strength back. But I also have friends in Cambodia and Thailand I have to see again also. I promised them.
  13. It’s common knowledge on the internet. Before my first trip to Southeast Asia I did some searches, like with travel clinic sites, and the WHO, and the CDC, and university tropical medicine web sites. Then I talked with my family doctor and found a travel medical clinic to go to. Really not that difficult.
  14. Had the three dose pre-exposure Rabies vaccine shots. Didn’t notice any side effects at all. Not even the bit of a sore arm muscle for a couple of days like you get from the tetanus vaccine shot or from Shingrix shingles vaccine shots. As a matter of fact, your post is the first I’ve ever heard of side effects from Rabies pre-exposure vaccine shots. (You still need two further shots of Rabies vaccine if bitten. But you don’t need the Rabies Immune Globulin, it can be sometimes hard to find and extremely expensive, and you don’t need three or four Rabies shots.)
