  1. Everyone can make all the jokes they like, but I am sure if it was your sister/wife/daughter you'd be taking a rather different tone. This is a shocking thing to happen to a person in any situation, especially when under the care of government officials. I hope this woman gets justice should the allegations prove to be true.
  2. “I personally think the soldier involved did not use excessive force. He just fired one shot at an arm but the bullet happened to be fatal.” .....They actually said this and think that is Ok? Unbelievable. So they have CCTV footage. Let's see the part where he is holding a hand grenade. #notholdingmybreath
  3. Can he also get the optional 'sport' package and the auto-climate control upgrades?
  4. So they still have their freedom, millions of followers, and billions of baht, but they've lost their fans. Ooooh, I bet they're really hurting.
  5. It doesn't matter whether people believe what the Government says or not. Or whether the weapons charges stick or not won't matter. The 2nd charge always does stick, and cannot be discussed. Game over. Might be better to lock this thread for that reason.
  6. This reeks of a cover-up. Teenage anti-drug campaigner gets killed by a soldier (who of course have never been involved in any illicit trades) and lo and behold, suddenly some drugs are found under the bonnet of his car. They said he had a grenade in his hand too. I call 'bullshit!' This is why Thailand struggles. The bad ones, for their own self interest, eliminate the good ones that would see their country rise to greatness. R.I.P. amazing young man.
  7. Wouldn't make much difference if he was unconscious at the time of entering the water. Chances are we will never know.
  8. It's all but impossible for us to know what the real truth is in a case like this. Probably somewhere in-between. Again, we'll probably never know.
  9. How about using it to invest in renewable/clean energy solutions?
  10. I hope charges relating to animal abuse are laid against the owners. It might highlight that certain 'Buddhist' practices related to giving money and freeing birds, fish, turtles, or whatever are actually totally un-Buddhist and should cease completely. Perhaps if senior Monks could speak out against these practices too.
  11. Yes, they are now. Started towards the end of last year, at which time the price dropped to reflect that as well.
  12. I have one, and love. Power to weight ratio is fantastic, and the handling on the less than ideal Thai roads is top notch. My only caveat would be that it is suited to an individual or couple, not families. If you need space, opt for the roomier HRV..... having said that, the HRV is much slower, handles not as well, and is comparatively bland both inside and out.
  13. This story just keeps on going, with more pictures to boot. I bet this particular Pa wished he had kept his backhand to him self.
  14. I wouldn't call it begging. The first has a little business, as many Thais do. In the foreigners case it's illegal. But then, when has the legality of something ever stopped people in Thailand from doing it. The other is a busker. Guessing also illegal, but again, who cares. Doing either activity to finance travel is fine by me, as long as they are not actively annoying passers by.
  15. But why?
