THIS place is one of WONDER and MYTH. 7 planets circle a small sun so close together that while standing on any of them it would be possible to see the other 6 in the evening sky. These planets are so close to each other that even with our current space travel ability we could move between planets in days instead of the months and months it takes for us to travel from planet to planet in our solar system.



Some gambling luck and a ship fight highlights chapter 9 for the boys.  Also we find one of our Italian models has found a new home and is doing just fine!

I have been a Nuggets fan since my undergraduates days at METROPOLITAN STATE in DENVER. In those days I'd finish classes and, killing time before time to go to my night job at the Embassy Suites, I'd slip over to old McNichols arena and purchase an 8 dollar ticket and often you could even wander in and watch a bit of Doug Moe's practices. Alex English and Fat Lever thrilled us all while wearing arguable the most hideously memorable jerseys of all time. Even when Dikembe Mutombo donned that rainbow skyline it was anything but alluring, but so  extraordinary.

But let's face it, other than upsetting Seattle  when we were an 8 seed and they were a 1 in the playoffs, we Nuggets faithful have suffered through mediocrity and an over all  sense of futility. We have never won an NBA title and often our best players depart at the peak of their talent. No I don't mean Mellow -- Oh come on of course I mean Mellow.

But from a season of extremely LOW expectations and a feeling of basic futility to the super teams of Golden State, San Antonio, Houston, Utah or the Clippers, there has come a glimmer of hope. Smiling like a kid on Christmas morning, the JOKER is rising and bringing his teammates and fans with him on this journey,

Welcome Nikola Jokic to DENVER!  Let's see where this will go.

Bangkok POPULATION #people #Thai #travel #city #urban #street #Asia #BKK

LOOK at this majestic photo I stole from Asia Web Direct. It displays the sprawl of Bangkok by night, but shows none of it's people. So the first thing people want to know when I tell them I live in Bangkok is usually WHY? But their next question is often, 'how big is Bangkok?'

So to answer this you must first understand that their are people seemingly everywhere in this city. If you live in Bangkok a test of this is simply, when you're out in public, stop for a moment and see how long it takes for someone to either walk into you as they finger at their mobile phone or deftly dodge around you as they finger at their mobile phone. Even in the suburban area where I live -- considered by many of my Farang friends to be the middle of nowhere -- chances are only seconds are going to elapse.

If you are a more mathematical person here are some numbers. In 2016 8.2 million people are registered in Bangkok, but the fun part of that is that during a work day the surrounding areas nearly double that number as their work force swarm these towers of commerce swelling the population to an estimated 15 million people. Believe me, if you've ever sat in Sukhamvit traffic you have no doubt that these numbers are accurate. More than 7 million people commuting through a city during a work day may seem impossible and at times it is.

How diverse is Bangkok? One of the reasons foreigners like myself love it here is the cosmopolitan feel of the city. Dominant languages spoken in the city would be Thai (of course), English, Arabic, French, Chinese, German, Russian, Dutch and Japanese. Of course you'll hear may others, but these -- while journeying on the sky train -- would be common.

If you love the city life, Bangkok is one of the jewels of South East Asia. If you are looking for peace and quiet, you might want to look elsewhere for your next holiday.

ADVICE for THOSE WHO WANT #love #friends #sex

 So my advice for those of you who are really truly looking for love is going to make some of you unhappy--oh hell it's going to make all of you unhappy--but wait on sex. Why would any adult in the year 2017 wait on anything, let alone sex? Simply put the physical act of sexual intercourse can create a metaphysical reaction that opens a star-gate of potential  alternatives in our lives. No idiot, I'm not talking about just sex with strangers or established friends. I'm talking about sex with someone you could in fact, if the moon and Jupiter align, find love with.

 He's no wizard he's a puritan.

Look, sex is not love and love is not sex, but  good sex can feel like love and even worse great sex can breed obsession which is a cousin to love but a distant cousin believe me. Everyone chuckles to themselves that sex is no big deal, it's a physical act. I'll argue this. A. You aren't doing it right. B. You haven't done it right yet. C. Someday when you do it right you'll see I was right all along.

'But I've had great sex with strangers.' Of course you have, you had no consequences or emotion it was a purely physical act. But my advice is not for anyone practicing commitment free sexual activity, swipe left hook ups or orgies or whatever. I'm trying to advise those actually searching for a lover. Lover in the truest sense of caring and sharing love, both physically and emotionally together.

Here is the thing. You've got feelings for someone and you want to explore them more deeply. Sex is sure to follow. But what if the sex is BAD? Are you guys done? Actually usually bad sex leads to break ups. It's like eating cake filled with mold. Sex is the treat couples look forward to, and if that is rotten what else do they have?

So here is why you wait a while. Friendship. Friendship can create a second or third or even fourth chance for bad sex to be corrected. If you know the person your dating was awesome before you became sexual you know they are still awesome. Maybe the sex can improve. Not maybe, all sex can improve with trust and communication. Now let's hope the sex is good and then another piece of the relationship puzzle snaps into place.

NATIONAL SIGNING DAY #football #NCAA #signingday #HUSKERS #cornnation

People make too big a God Damn deal about recruiting. College football fans have just experienced the NIGHT CLUB effect of the fanning process. National signing day #signingday, which was a few days ago, always reminds me of evenings out chasing female companionship. The days leading up to the night chatter among myself and my chums was as optimistic and lusty a Penthouse forum. Dreams of 5 star babes stepping off a bachelorette party bus dressed in their hottest ‘God why can’t it be me’ outfits streaming into the club – empty except for you and your friends (of course) – seemed not only possible but a forgone expectation of the night. #dreamon
Then the night begins. The female friend from work who was bringing her cousins, who’d just graduated from university (from a sorority of course), cancels first. You do have the club to yourself, but that’s just because you arrived no less than 2 hours early. There are some girls there. Some of the girls there are attractive; they are 3 star early evening girls who make the night sufficiently bearable. But of course the 4 star girls have to make a big show of their commitment to the club, after all they could have gone to 8 or 9 different clubs so why would they just walk into the one you chose, adore, and support with all your heart and soul? But they do come, and the night takes on a euphoric aura of invincibility. No wonder why you love this club EVERYONE loves it and is arriving to make it a better place transforming your beloved club into a mega club through their dedication and hard work. But, and this is where the night gets foggy, then some 5 star mega beauty, an angelic creature of mythical caliber that eclipses all the other girls already committed to the club, places her hand upon the door of our chosen club, but then moves along to another location all together.  ‘Disloyal bitch,’ you mutter. ‘We didn’t want them in our club anyway,’ your idiot friend barks trying to once again view the 4 star girls as goddesses, despite the fact they couldn’t poor the wine for the true magnificent deity that elected not to come in.
Think I’m going over board? Ask any university football fan about signing day and I’m willing to wager the first thing they will say is it was good and then they’ll follow that up with BUT there were some 5 stars that slipped away that would have really made it SPECIAL.

People make too big a God Damn deal about recruiting.
