    Yes, I know people who've had this

    I believe if this is even real, the key is a rapid exit strategy. An antidote, physostigmine, but that only makes sense if it's real. I think if something like this happens you need to make a huge ruckus and stay active and involve as many people as you can in order to avoid falling into the hands of the one remote controller. But then again, I am not sure this is really true.

    Another thing, don't get drunk. I have no joy in being alcoholized and it isn't good for enjoying sex anyway. Most crime victims of this sort were drunk.
    I know two people from another online forum who were scopolomined, and last week I heard from one of my overseas mates here in Bogota that the week before, he was scopolomined in a club. He fell asleep and when he woke up all his money and cards were taken.

    Rough estimates are that 50,000 people a year are scopolomined in Colombia every year.

    It's very real.

    1. I'm not sure what makes you think it's not real. Read the Bogota forum a few pages back. Someone posted how he helped the villains take out his own stuff while having no recollection of that 2 days later.

    2. Who's going to give you the antidote while you're out?

    3. Doesn't have to be alcohol. I don't see why they couldn't drop something in your ginger ale if you live it unattended.

    This shit really scares me. More than a street mugging would.

    Is this even real?

    You should have 2 cameras. 1 for clubbing and casual shooting and one for "in the room" good high-def pictures. The casual one should fit snuggly in your front pocket or back pocket with the strap not sticking out. That G9 is huge and bulky and wouldn't recommend you walking around with it in plain sight any time of the day. Get the girls accustomed to taking pics by taking a lot in common areas. So you don't spook them when you go private. Good rule of thumb.

    Go over the Amazon reviews. Great place to start when you want to research an item.

    Speaking of "PURCHASE" it sounds like you may want to be a SENIOR MEMBER. You could be having these types of conversations via PM with other well experienced mongers. Send me a PM when you join.

    It is the best $20 you will spend all year. The gift that keeps on giving.

    Welcome

    i always shoot on p which is semi automatic. once the iso speed flash and image size are set i leave the rest for later. that is the beauty of digital.

    i forgot to mention that the s95 has a raw mode. you can't go wrong for under $400. you can't buy a camera body without the lens for less than $600.

    It is a DSLR Nikon. Besides the women, seeing cool things and photographing them are my favorite things to do on trips. I enjoy photography and I want quality photos which point and shoots usually cannot produce.

I would strongly advise against bringing an SLR, a simple point and shoot is fine and you can put that in your pocket.
    Yeah, might have to look into that. I have my camera insured in case of loss while traveling but in poorer countries it does make me a target. I would be hesitant to carry it walking around alone. I was thinking more along the lines of only bringing it when I am going on an excursion with other people.

    At 1800 to 1 USD, that's like 75-100 USD for short time. That's a good deal? How short is this "short time"? 15 min. 60 min?

    Be careful when you're out and about and don't wear anything flashy like gold chains or nice watches. This British guy was killed for a gold chain. It's not worth your life!
