Am I missing something? Did someone do a post then delete, leaving us hanging?

@Tallyho: The British Banker you mentioned in Hong Kong left an out of office reply alluding to the murders and how he was potentially going to kill himself.

@Izzy: Where are your adventures taking you next?! Good luck!

And where are you off too?

Not HK, I hope. You're too pretty. Stay away from the bankers.

Ooh. I had not seen it before:

"I am out of the office. Indefinitely. For urgent enquiries, or indeed any enquiries, please contact someone who is not an insane psychopath.

For escalation, please contact God, though suspect the devil will have custody. (Last line only really worked if I had followed through…)"

Reads like something you only find in a Stephen King thriller, proving that real life is indeed stranger than fiction.

And finally got to witness the event: person driving, with his eyes on the phone, rams into the back of a trailer that was stopped at the traffic light.

#2:
Mother allows kids to run across the road to their parked car. Saw the first one darting and slowed to a crawl; the second one missed hitting the mid section of my car by just that many inches!!!
