Any reason why? Shorts has been mediocre recently and Houston has a good pass D.[/quote]
He put up 15 two weeks ago against them, and 18 last week with Joe Haden covering him.
Plus, I just don't see Nelson having a decent game with Flynn trying to get him the ball....

Frank Gore vs. Seattle
Joique Bell @ Philly
Also, would you consider starting Cecil Shorts (vs. Houston) over Jordy Nelson (vs. Atlanta) this week? I can't afford another 3 point performance from what used to be one of my most dependable players.

white women traveling alone in the third world is straight stupid. Especially as this woman did who went WAY off the beaten path to a remote island.
I've met plenty who travel alone frequently, and could handle themselves in foreign or dangerous environment better than you.

That's dumb. An American traveling to the EU, Britain in particular, is the easiest cross-border trip one can make. If you are still concerned, call up the British consulate (there should be one in Houston) and ask them. The convo should take no more than 2 minutes. ...

It won't be a problem at all. If they even check your passport, your visa stamp will be dated to show when you first entered.
Eta: Also, technically when you first arrive in a country and they stamp your passport, that is considered a visa. It's your permission to legally enter the country. If y...
