Good old days when every 10min there would be a new post on this thread. I remember we took it from 700 pages to 1k+ in 6months or so.

Jeez that was around 4-5 years ago.

Tempus Fugit! 

Have to say though, there is a good vibe in this forum again. Few old faces popping out of the woodwork and a small influx of new members at last. 

I hope the baron spell is over and it continues.

APPARENTLY he should have been but an 'administrative error' lost the paperwork!!

Haven't they heard of computers???

Sounds like summet our board would do.

And some red tape saying he can't be knighted posthumously

But  they're arguing whether he did enough other than '66 to be considered. Old Bobby Combover and Geoff Hurst got their Knighthoods.

Not been owt on here about Glenn Hoddle since he got out of hospital.

Glad to see him getting better

'I WAS GONE'

Glenn Hoddle — England legend on how he ‘died for 60 seconds’ during cardiac arrest, ‘smashed head on floor’ and had seven ribs broken

Host Robbie Savage yelled for help as sound engineer Simon Daniels raced to Glenn's aid and brought him back to life

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6713127/Glenn-Hoddle-reveals-died-60-seconds-heart-stopped-filming-TV-show.html

 

But still have to say I think hes a tad bonkers!

My religeous beliefs are a bit wacky but his thoughts make mine look sane,

I honestly don't know how his career got over going back to '99 time and all that shite he said about invalid babies being born like they were because they were bad in their previous life.

Remember that?

Hoddle's future in doubt after disabled slur

‘The Pirate Days Are Over’: Goa’s Nude Hippies Give Way to India’s Yuppies

 
@Unionjack   I thought you'll find this interesting to read since you go there.

MateGoa has totally changed in every way since I first went there at 17.

You couldn't have found a better chillaxed place. Anjuna was like a heaven on earth/

The cops were still after backsheesh but they weren't the money grabbing cunts they are now.

There were no big hotels, no sign of kids,families. Not a trace of Blackpool or Ibiza.

All the drugs were 'controlled' by like minded peeps just out for fun. Nothing organized. No signs of gangs.

But the Red rupee changed it all.

Russia stepped in. Investing in all the things you dont want to see.

Starting in 2000 or o you started getting those fat, pink, middle aged families thinking it was a cool thing to do, They didn't seem to notice the locals and the regulars staring at them cause they were just so out of place. It's like you ALWAYS know who the old bill are at the parties cause they are the only ones with polished plain black shoes!! They stand out a mile!'

It doesn't help when you have changes in governments neither.

One who thinks that having the full moon parties that last 3 days and the nightly parties up in the hills are a good thing. Then theres ones thats anti pleasure who want lessof the 'backpacker' type of tourist and want to cash in on tourism.

I've been to Goa 19 times now and rented the same house every time but its changed mate

We think we are racist but many there are of the mind we are killing them. Spreading aids and other diseases by mixing our blood with theirs Let alone we are buying businesses and taking their jobs!

There are gangs of Indian guys all doing acid,mdma,pissed going thru the hills at parties and raping westerners that are off their heads or just walking on their own. Men or women both.

Theres been cases of locals beating up and even a couple of murders of young westerners. About 10 years ago a young 15 year old girl was killed when I was there.Beaten,raped,murdered yet the initial reports blamed her and said she accidentally drowned cause she was a drug addict!!

And its all changed for the ex pats who sold up to go move there. I know this couple that moved there in 2005. Paid £50k for a gorgeous house,land and got residency rights and moved there. They found that their residential use of their properties were revoked. And the Govt started fining these house owners 3 times the value of the price they paid for them OR they confiscate it!! Its crazy!!

They have even changed the laws on visas - OK it might be frowned upon here too if what we used to do happened. But at one time me n the Mrs would get a 6 month visa. Then shoot off to Thailand for a week or so to sort out another visa then go back again. You cant do that now. You have to leave for 2 months.

Yet theres hundreds of thousands going to India from Bangladesh without any form of paper work. Westerners go and add to their economy.

As soon as they saw there was money to be made it just killed the place. Heartbreaking it is.

I am a firm believer in positive thoughts mate.

The more positive you are, the more you THINK you are, the more you become it.

If you think gloomy, you worry about what has not happened when you think about all the bad things in your life etc etc it  gets your brain into thinking in ome way. All to do with neuron connectors and burned meural pathways

The more positive you are the more that gets rid of cortisol, so the more it creates serotonin/ dopamine thus making you happier.

 

But as for being able to think something and be able to attract them then religion has been trying that in the form of prayer for thousands of years unsuccessfully.

But look what your brain can do. Let you go thru medical operations without pain killers or anesthesia.
