It shows you there are still these suckers about.

Imagine if he'd have had the common sense to do some Googling and join here. He'd not have lost that money.
Read a trip report from North Korea >>here<<

Look what the American media makes some people believe:
Putin often threatens to strike US with nuclear weapons.

I guess he must not ever met a nice pussy-cat in his life neither he knew what to do ...with it
and she was a very clever woman and knew what to do to make him singing and giving her  plenty of money.  I guess together with her friend must have applied their expertise very well and made him smile...... so he gave them all his money!

AvHdb for your information My self and Manny we are still married to the same Russian woman we met.......

where YOU and ms still fighting windmills....... and you are still here watching the views and wares for sale, on the right list, of female products.......keep drinking and dreaming.

As about Andy I have no problem with his status everybody to his own.

Wiz, perhaps learning what is said in jest would be useful skill in life.
