    While the idea behind a vacation is to "get away from it all", some people use the opportunity of peace and quiet to catch up on some important business. Unfortunately, in the process of catching up on important business, the businessmen ruined the beach experience for the natives and true vacationers. And so, to keep the vacation experience vacation-y, Palm Island is banning all mobile devices within a half-mile of the beach. Resort owner Rob Barret is a full supporter of this legislation, and backed up the ban. "There is nothing worse than lying back in your double hammock, sipping on your strawberry daiquiri and hearing the Motorola jingle in the background. (Vacationers should) switch off their mobiles and enjoy the sound of the lapping waves."

    Some people can NEVER leave work totally. There could always be some problem that needs to be looked at ASAP. For that reason I disagree with this idea.

    This is the Island(I think)
    Queensland, Australia.

    Ban laptops an stuff yeah, but mobiles? Thats retarded. I often call people when I'm on holiday on the beach to tell them what its like an stuff. Plus I know many girls who wil be very pissed off if they couldnt get hold of me when I'm on holiday an they couldnt come.. So I guess palm island is off my holiday destinations forever. (which sucks because I was gona go there next year)

    No one is that important. And if they are, don't ruin my vacation or else you will find a size 11 boot up your ass.

    I don't do demanding women, because I'm the demanding one;)

    It's DaMultas way or the Highway. I have been called King !@$hole many of times.......Because I do what I want when I want. I even come and go when I want with no asking the women's.....More than likely the whole idea of me be being single right now, because I have a kid and have no need to mess with those types of things. I have never been happier:)

    I get called "a fucking cunt" a lot :D largely because I wont apolagise if I'm dong something in relatiation. For example; a girl I know kicked me under the table for no real reason, so I threw a penny in her drink an she threw a hissy fit saying she was ill after drinking it blablabla.. yea right. It was only a copper coin we throw coins in ppls drinks all the time. I think she was just pissed cos nobody has had the balls to do it to her before an I did. That or the plecebo effect.

    Why do you throw coins in others drinks again? Sounds silly, and yes it can cause problems if it blocks the small intestine.



    My wife washed my work phone just the other night. In abattle between Sony and Bosch....




    Sony 0
    Bosch 1


    It was also partially dried in the dryer.

    :cool:I can understand wanting the ladies to reach you, but...you're on vacation and they're not there so let them cry you a river. Vacation is for relaxation and nothing is more annoying than getting calls when you're trying to catch some rays and keep a nice buzz going. You think i want to hear about the DOW and stock options when i'm looking at a fine POA?

    :pimp: Dude you should just learn how to keep that pimp hand strong

    YEA DUDE!! That's a funny FN thing to do to a girl if she's being a B at the dinner table. Besides alcohol kills germs anyway. She just flipped because every guy she's ever known, would succumb to her cuntiness for sex. Get an asian GF as they don't cause unnecessary shite.

    I don't fucking give a shit, Ket.

    If your girlfriends are so bitchy that they do not understand that you are on vacation, trying to ccatch up on some much needed relaxation, then I would say that they do not understand that their partners are human, not money sources, and I consider those women to be worthless.

    I am afraid that I think your girls are not worth to be dated, if you want action you can hire a prostitute, there is a lot less commitment in that.

    I charge $50 for your basic deal.

    From my friend, Tucker.

    I feel it explains a lot about young woman and society in general these days.

    Women are much simpler than most people think. I do think women bitch far too much though and have a very irritating habit of blowing shit way out of proportion.
