You're indefatigable, mysty. It's Papua New Guinea, but the problems there seem to be similar to those in first world countries. https://www.pngattitude.com/2020/08/png ... uqFHXrEsaI

Hallelujah! I’ve just realised what the abbreviation PNG means! So thanks FFS. I do get confused when lazy people can’t be bothered to put the name of something and use initials instead.

I think the USA and the UK might be exceptions to that.
