I plan a trip to North Texas. I hope to meet nice people.
I find east-Java (like ijen, baluran national park, bama beach, Alas purwo or for those who like sports Mt. Raung (a 2 weeks hike). I should buy a lot of White coffee like 1000 pieces, that stuff is even better then Kopi Luwak.
Friendly people, but to poor to learn English. Just buy a Lonely Planet for the important phases and show the Indonesian translation. That works fine.
Also, I recommend to fund a hotel in the mountain (colder and silent) far from the noisy mosque or buy earplugs.
Further questuons about this subject: just wire a telegram :)
Or leave some open feedback...
Better than Kopi Luwak? No, really? We have never heard of such a thing. While we are still saving up for our first cup of Kopi Luwak, it is supposed to be amazing despite how the process sounds. When we wish to "go big or get out" on coffee, it is always a toss-up between a Kona or a Blue Mountain. We have always stuck to Central/South American coffees versus Java/Sumatra/Indonesia or the Africans. Tell us more about the White coffee.
Are you over there in that part of Wicked Way Far East Texas WikiPlay?
Yeah I like Cruz kind of wish he would run in 2020 though.
Even though we as tradition calls for are mortal enemies I must give it to y'all as y'all are playing better this year then you have in the past. But don't expect me to soft on you all the time.
**** New WA Resolution Notification *****
There is currently a new General Assembly Resolution at vote. When expressing your opinion, please note which Resolution it is for. And remember Texans, your individual vote does count!
The new Resolution is called:
"Repeal: "Convention On International Oil Spills"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Category: Repeal Resolution: GA#444 Proposed by: Lord Dominator
General Assembly Resolution #444 "Convention on International Oil Spills" (Category: Environmental; Industry Affected: Mining) shall be struck out"...
<see the General Assembly for full text and to vote>"
Synopsis: The General Assembly, in what is almost an Insta-Repeal™, has decided that a lot of people are having second thoughts on having it micromanage their nation for them. Eureka! Four Stars. NewTexas will go on record as FOR on this Resolution. This is only the opinion of NewTexas. We look forward to other Texans' opinions and comments on this Resolution. If good arguments to the contrary are made, we will reconsider our position.
The Texas response was flat on the last GA vote -- Greenhouse Gas Cap And Trade Program -- which was passed after gaining 84.1% of the vote. As a reminder, all we are looking for is a simple 10% of Texans to say one way or another. We are a force for change in the WA. Every vote counts! There were 3 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 1 FOR and 2 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were almost unanimous.
If you would like to take part in shaping the world you live in, please vote. Voting is a right and a privilege, please consider using it. And, if you are not a member of the World Assembly, we strongly encourage you to join.
All Texas WA Member nations please vote. Please make your Texan opinions known in Texas by 11:00 PM Friday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00 PM Texas Time on Saturday the 13th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 9154 Votes AGAINST: 2169
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
Want to stroll down Memory Lane Texas?
Way, way back, a long time ago, there were the days when there were only 10 messages on the RMB and only 10 messages in your Inbox and when they scrolled off, they were gone, forever. That gave rise to The Offsites, so peeps could continue conversations and threads for more than the few minutes it took a spammer to roll a post off that took you 4 hours to craft. If you wanted to save something, you had to save it yourself. We did, and still do, for 15 years. Thus, like sands through the hourglass, The Archives of NewTexas continue...
Today's World Census Report is one we have watched closely for ages. Here are a couple of nuggets from perhaps before you were born.
Way to go Chief Pilot Pat (of El pat)! As the only three-time winner of Most Rebellious Youth in Texas, he has now broken into the Top 100 in the World at #84. Please restrain your hellions properly and we want our car stereo back. ;>
In a massive rumble between the hotrodders of HotRodia and the flyboys of El pat, the seven-time #1 Flyboys were dislodged as The Most Rebellious Youth in Texas by the Hotrodders. Guess that just goes to show that a tire iron hurts more than a seat cushion floatation device. Don't discount the NewTexas hellions, they are up about 5 from last time!
Yeah, those two are just that old and still around, although much less vocal than they once were. * sigh *
Yeah. Nice upset on Kentucky! (Personally, I don't think you guys deserve top 25 cause of the 4-2 record but, the top 25 is what it is)
okay to be fair those two losses are to top 5 teams...
When I was in high school someone had the profoundly bad judgement to sub an English teacher into our chemistry lab. That day is still a high point among my academic memories.
It is so rare to get subs that do have the requisite content knowledge.
And that IS profoundly bad judgement. Wow.
I've had it happen before. The other day they couldn't find someone to fill in for our English teacher, so we ended up with the Librarian instead.
They should hire you Trec! 😮
In 4 years of HS, we had like 3 days with substitutes. Very rare occurrence. And, nobody ever substituted for the foreign language classes.
Substitutes are actually semi-common around here. My Math teacher was on maternity leave for 6 weeks to start the year and my English teacher has missed 3 days this year alone.
in other news, it's almost like some local teams are having a major Renaissance in the College Football World. Kentucky is #18 in the country at 5-1 and now we have Cincinnati making an appearance at #25 as well at 6-0. This feels like some crazy dream.
True, but still. No slack
I also didn’t understand why a&m moved to the SEC. What? you liked getting your butts busted by Alabama each year?
Normal Moral Victories from Aggie Fans: “But we held Bama under 50 this year!” Woo
well if you think of it that way the SEC would have four teams, essentially (Bama, Georgia, LSU, Auburn)- nobody else has much of a true shot right now in that conference.

Too bad y'all could of been ranked higher if it weren't for us Aggies. Lol
Yeah get rid of the aggies and we'd be top 10. At least LSU helped them out Saturday.
True but three other teams helped were projected to be #19 in Tuesday's new AP top 25 rankings
