I wonder what an "individual target" means? Several bombs meant to target one place? One person? Confusing!

Well you could have fooled me. 3 men assembling bombs in Bangkok who managed to blow themselves up first "should not be construed as terror attacks"... what pray would the bombs have been used for eventually, if not terror attacks?

Hmmmm.... a sign of the times. Kangaroo route only available through Singapore now. Bangkok will be turnaround service for BA and QF. So now no more BA BKK SYD flights, and no more QF BKK LHR flights.

The wisdom of Pooh Bear... how wonderful!
Robert Anderson originally shared:
 
There are a few things about me that you probably do not know. I was once upon a time a professional working stage actor. I worked at the Smithsonian's National Children's Theatre in D.C. as a swing actor on the production of Winnie the Pooh. I have been in 39 productions and I can say without a doubt that capturing the subtlety of Winnie the Pooh's charm, wisdom and open embrace of naivety is one of the most challenging and exhausting roles that I have ever played. There are really three audiences to which this character gives voice. Finding the balance and embracing each wholly requires both a leap and abandon that is at it's essence nearly maddening. Pooh is an extraordinary character. Each of the others are by comparison relatively easy as they each embody strong personalities and traits that an actor can parody and hide behind. Pooh has no such armor. His strength is his lack of certainty beyond his immediate experience.
