Re: US Presidential election odds

But rich calling for an end to a thread. It is you who has dragged this thread to a low standard. Last couple of days posting a half dozen times or more. About something you think should end. Good luck with the chickens purchase. Listen to them they are wise. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2021012...

I think trump promised a few things, most of which he did or tried.

Re: US Presidential election odds

Is it to early to put the odds up, or at least predict the winner of the 3 parties, for the next US election.
The forum experts should know a favourite.

There have been some recent changes. Especially with reduction of people allowed to enter and the requirement for a PCR test prior to permission to board a flight.

Re: Australia plans to kill a pigeon

Aussies don’t kill birds or animals.

We humanely cull them.
So one pigeon culled will not worry us.
Christ we cull and eat our national crest animals.

If it’s in the ticket price do you really think the airlines will cover the additional admin costs for free. Add on their secret markup.
