Which kind of hotels?
What're you favorite cuisines?
Around 3 years ago, I recall you informing me that you'd visited a 5 star hotel just once in your life and that too in Aruba.
Outside of the rare personal visits to these places the majority of my visitations were business related. I care very little for hotel life. I am a nature lover and love the simpler things in life. The reason why I knew about the Aruba hotel was because I heard my colleagues speaking about it. Of course the obvious class was noted but meant very little.

The things that are most important to me in hotels are the quality of the food and the sanitation. I ALWAYS sterilize the bathroom fixture after they have been cleaned.

Yes, but are you aware of the rule concerning the use of highlights in the English language of which you can use just one at a time?
The use of capitals, inverted commas and the underline are the 3 ways of highlighting a word or a phrase in English.
Any one of these can be used at a time.
Anyway, all's well that ends well.

Have you seen any pics of Aishwarya Rai?
Some years ago, there was a kind of competition in the world media between Aishwarya Rai and Angelina Jolie for the title of the most beautiful woman.
I think Katrina Kaif is a great looker?
Have you heard of the Bollywood actress, Katrina Kaif?
1. While I like Angelina I would not regard her as the most beautiful woman. Both women are beautiful.

2. No memory of Katrina, at this time.

JOEL THUMBS UP"---HUGH,Do you think consciousness is a nonlocal phenomenon?

Now, share your thoughts on the matter and give reasons.

Joel---Is it possible for consciousness in any of its gradations to do work?

Hugh--- Yes but mindless matter cannot work unless it is acted on my a consciousness.
No, no, those are not the answers.

More on these profound questions, later.

Among the world's religious scriptures, only the Vedas deal with consciousness and these days quantum physics is increasingly concentrating on consciousness.

Is consciousness a substratum, a phenomenon or an epiphenomenon?

But, you'd mentioned in your post around 3 years ago that the 5 star hotel in Aruba was the only 5 star hotel that you'd ever visited.

Anyway, it doesn't matter.

Ok, no big deal.
Many of the IIT alumni are world famous.
Which is the best science and tech university in Jamaica?
As for the A levels, I find the course content of the British A level high school course inferior.
The IB from Geneva is better in terms of rigor and relevance.
1. I have noted that you did not respond to the question, what if you have spoken about them before? Ok, no big deal.

2. Jamaica is very small relative to India and so there are not many universities. Having said that, each institution would make the claim to being the best.

3. I disagree with your view on A levels.

You should do the same at home.

The toilets in the house should be thoroughly cleaned twice or thrice a day.

No one is permitted to use my personal toilet.

My guests are free to to use the other toilets in the apartment.

Only the servants enter my personal toilet to clean it thrice a day and do the same with the other toilets at home.

Pseudologia Fantastica: Pathological Lying...
In psychiatry, pseudologia fantastica, also called mythomania, compulsive lying or pathological lying, is a behavior of habitual or compulsive lying.

Pathological lying is the act of both knowingly and intentionally/willfully making a false statement. Most people do so out of fear. Pathological lying is considered a mental illness, because it takes over rational judgment and progresses into the fantasy world and back.

Pathological lying can be described as a habituation of lying. It is when an individual consistently lies for no personal gain. The lies are commonly transparent and often seem rather pointless.

Those who practice the Christian faith and
follow Scriptural teaching are forbidden to
practice sorcery (Galatians 5:19-21). The
word for “sorcery” in Greek is “pharmakia,”
which is where we get the word “pharmacy.”
The definition of sorcery/pharmakia in the
Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old
and New Testament Words
is as follows; “the use of medicine, drugs,
spells, and poisoning.”

A few replies to that
1) Discussion? More like a soliquy. That goes for all the Indian posters.
2) Who made you ayatollah of the discussion forums?
3) The personalities are what makes these discussions engaging. If it wasnt for ridicule, I might have to actually do something productive.
So if you tell people not to discuss personal matters, you become an Ayatollah?

What do you know about Ayatollah? Making him another Icon like OBL?

And in fact I was asked to comment about the personality of Joel by some of your "Non Ayatollah" buddies.

Sounds ok to me. "if they are to die, they had better do it now, and decrease the surplus population".

So many words use their original meaning over the time and are used in totally different sense.

For example the word "Gay" had nothing to do with Homos, they "adopted" it and soiled it and totally changed its meaning.

The same goes for "Drinking", the word has nothing to do with Alcohol imbibing.

'Drugs" have nothing to with narcotics.

People misuse established words and make new meaning out of it.

It is not strange for me that word "Pharmacy" was used in a different sense.

And this practice is very old, like they call Pauline Christianity as "Christianity"!!
