Oh, have a great time! A pretty pic or two on I-land would great, if either if you are picture taking.

Thanks.
Thanks, I was just going to say something to same effect-
relatively marginal risk doesn't mean no risk!

And deep, your nsinuation is disgusting.

I do agree with this.

Although New Zealand is not America, and America is not France, in regard to social problems and the acts angry people are willing to commit

My parents are on vacation in Croatia - they have no direct flights and usually they would fly through Paris or Amsterdam but this time they went through Prague since my Dad felt that was "safer" in terms of shit that may happen at an airport.

What part is an exaggeration?
The part where you questioned why anyone would want to go to France.

Since you like statistics so much I am sure you can just as easily look up where Americans who died abroad have died. In 2015 (the data is not available yet for 2016) a grand total of ONE American died due to terrorism in France. Didn't you just cite that 3.5 million Americans visited France? I mean, 1 in 3.5 million is enough to make you think that nobody should go there?

Sounds like your father is a clear thinking person that can correctly evaluate risk.

I just find it funny that people still engage him. It's so blatantly obvious he's trolling for a reaction and yet everyone still replies and quotes him.

I'm going to Nice in September

When someone has views or comments that seem to be irrational, I get that it might seem like the only logical answer is that the person must be trolling. But, I would venture to say he's not trolling, he just has irrational viewpoints and makes offensive comments.

I've always assumed that Deep is an elaborate piece of performance art, speaking as someone with first hand experience in such matters.

He is trolling. He plays "devil's advocate" because he's bored out of his mind at home clearly.

You probably just reminded him of it and he'll start again.
