ooooh no - 20+ hours in a bucket seat? (even with movies)

Chinese New Year fire works in Hong Kong likely to be a better display - and only half the time in the bucket seat. If you can upgrade to business or first - the movies might blurr into the free champagne - and you can lie down!!

You could stop off in HK for 9 months or so to recover before moving on to Sydney, or do it the other way round and only a few months in Sydney and then realise you really shouldn't have bothered with Sydney when you see the HK ones on the way back!!

Don't bother going for the Cricket though -.... oh dear don't we have another drubbing starting tonight?

Forget getting bankruptcy anulled and flouting planning rules .. Player 2 needs to go immediately for a miscarriage of justice with compensation - as it was supposed to be Player 1 in Jail. Quite easy to get these things wrong if you refer to claimants / respondents just by numbers (see other thread by dls!) :D

As the QC did when he realised he had sentenced his client to death when he meant to say 'defendant 1' rather than 'defendant 2'.

Player 1 goes to jail 3 times, without ever passing go.

Player 2 lands on Park Land on his first go around the board and Mayfair on his second. He then buy a hotel on Mayfair.

Player 1 gets out of Prison and straight away lands on Mayfair and is bankrupt.

So Player 1 never actually passed go once.

What are the odds of this happening?


I think Smouldering might be the sort of QC BoJ may have come across if he 'sighs' with arrogance of getting 1 & 2 mixed up as being unimportant.

I have been accused of being arrogant by Landy. This is the funniest thing since Mrs Stoat told me I take too long in the shower.

Stepson #2 saw in the New Year at Sydney Harbour this year - very highly recommended.

Break your journey out at Bangkok or Singapore, and at LA on the way back, and you can tick the circumnavigation off your list, too. Maybe avoid playing Monopoly on the plane though.
