Still wondering if there exist something I can plug into after the battery dies on a plane or train.. will research if that exists.
Sadly, not really.

I'm going to leave it at that.

Another person who can't read what I said! Oh well, there are always those types out there.

Considering that you flew off the handle at what amounted to simply misunderstanding my post...you know that old saying, "when you're in a hole..."?

Once again, you are misstating the truth. It was part of that post (the use of the word decade). I guess you can't handle the truth!

Also, considering that you cannot read either (my Finland example where I did deduct the 24% VAT), and that you are not honoring ghporter's request (another instance where you can't read), the old saying "What goes around ...." is applicable here.

Well, there is the option that English is your first language, but you're still getting it wrong.

Anyways, it's amazing how riled up you get for a simple 'what the hell'.

I dare not to use a WTF on you, you might take it literally and beyond the normal use.

Regarding the English Language, it is my primary language, but apparently not yours, as it's clear that you can not read. Also, I don't understand why some folks around here can't state their opinions in a more mature, on-topic manner. All of that accomplished nothing, and it was not on topic (eventually, subsequent posts were much better, and useful).

But, I guess trying to reason with folks like you is both useless, and as bad as talking to the wall.

I suggest you guys leave jeff's thread alone, and start a thread in the Lounge, or Feedback, on "Forum Etiquette." I expect lots of cat pictures, at least one HAHA guy, and Picard face palm.

How'd your trip go and what was your solution?

Why do people need to be so mean and nitpick every thing online?
