Five things we're all wondering about

1 PCCW privatisation plan sparks crisis ... people are annoyed, worried, frustrated and mad at Richard Li Tzar-kai - and these are just Netvigator customers.

2 50,000 runners crowd the Hong Kong marathon ... in other words, it's like Mong Kok on a really slow day.

3 Tibetan Buddhist spiritual head the Karmapa visits Hong Kong ... we assume this was one visitor not just here for our shopping paradise.

4 Call for longer jail term, shock tactics and licence suspension for drink-drivers ... for a real deterrent, just threaten to ban drink-drivers from ever getting a drink again.

5 Forbes magazine reports sharp drop in local tycoons' fortunes ... usually, when you lose so much money, you get a younger woman and a divorce out of it.
