  1. I know in the US homeowners insurance is deemed ineffective if the residence is unoccupied for a prolonged length of time - which varies by state. A small occurrence can cause massive damage if left untended for any significant length of time - the fact that OP could get ANY coverage at ANY reasonsble cost strikes me as unusual.
  2. Of course if you want to get a broad range of responses - from the rational (which, for a health question asked of amateurs, is best replied with “see your doctor”), to the beyond the lunatic fringe — Cruise Critic is the place to ask.
  3. However, apparently not yes. But why stop at ***** - shouldn’t one want to wait for the results of a pregnancy test? Seriously though, an intelligent man should probably not go any further than a handshake with the sort of control-minded flibbitygibbit who retains the option to say “no” after repeatedly saying yes, even at the point of “doing it” (which presumably includes while “doing it”).
  4. My son regularly travels to Vietnam for the Department of Commerce - the officials with which he meets tend to call it Saigon.
  5. Agreed — but would you think that a “YES” to the third to last and second to last would at least complicate things? You get into a gray area - sort of like those situations in which a dropped fiancée has successfully sued her ex for breach of contract after rescinding his proposal of marriage.
  6. Of course, a series of consecutive (increasingly approvingly) "yesses" to a series of questions seriously complicates -- shall we go for a drink? you want another? shall we go back to my place? want to sit here? can we take this off? shall we go into my bedroom? OK if we slide these off?
  7. Definitely the way to “do” Italy. Naples, Rome, Venice, Florence, by train - then, car for Tuscany from base villa for two weeks near Greve in Chianti - halfway between Florence and Siena - for lazy day trips to the hill towns, then back to Rome for TA home.
  8. But is East Bay “true west coast”? I would not refer to myself as “Atlantic Coast” - because Long Island Sound and then Long Island (that dreary, hideous amalgam of commuter suburbs) lie between CT and the Atlantic. I do, however, have to acknowledge an acceptable aspect of Long Island —- it will serve as a breakwater to protect CT should a tsunami threaten the East Coast. Much as New Jersey exists to protect Philadelphia.
  9. Once you rationalize your “work schedule” - to what amounts to an endless series of seven-day weekends, you might want to look at TA repositioning’s - a leisurely way of getting to the continent for tulip season in the Netherlands or returning from your October in Tuscany. Sadly, they seem to be catching on, and are no longer the absurd bargains on uncrowned ships - still, they beat flying.
  10. Who gives a rat what is under someone else’s clothes? If it’s under something else, isn’t it “underwear”? This sounds like a second grade playground discussion: “I see England, I see France, I see Mary’s ...”
  11. Of course “no” does (and always should) mean NO. Just when, at what stage, of the interaction is “the very last second”?
  12. Initiation of intimacy has to be one of the most delicate of human interactions. Obviously abusive initiations are despicable — but if everyone waited until someone flashed a green light before touching someone, the human race would have died out thousands of generations ago.
  13. It was in the Stanford study you cited - but that is immaterial: if 2% of claims are false, it should follow that 98% are true - an overwhelming ratio. It is a serious problem infecting our society - which seems to worsen in passing years: “no” should always be accepted as meaning “no”.
