  1. Everyone obey all laws in Thailand. #not
  2. No, they shouldn't. However I believe in the humane treatment of all prisoners regardless of status / orientation / etc, .ie. the right to be protected from physical harm and harassment. This means that a new wing would be welcome, but the wing should accomodate all prisoners in order to reduce overcrowding. Yes, prisoners are here for a reason, but sleeping for years on a concrete floor isn't "humane". This means that we should focus on programs to prevent harassment and violence against all prisoners, ladyboys included. People are free to make their own choices, i.e. "transgenders" have the right to pretend to be whatever they want: a man, a woman, a dog, a chair, a glass, etc. but we shouldn't specifically cater to those needs, especially not in prison. We have a system in place that follows basic human biology: and this remains a secret that hasn't been released to the public. I managed to get a hold of ultra-secret medical documents that were before this day hidden from the public and contain a big revelation that is about to change the world as we see it. I'll leak it right here. Are you ready? Here it is: "There are two genders".
  3. More time to find someone to smuggle her to a neighboring country, perhaps. All until the media quiets down and the story gets swept under the rug, in which case she'l re-appear and everything will be all right.
  4. People will hate me for this, but... There are two possible options as to why people are gay: You are either "made" gay, or "born" gay. Scientists still do not have a consensus but tend to lean towards "born". Let's assume the first one: "made". Why don't we focus on reparative techniques and educative techniques in order to prevent young children from developing the condition? This would imply pushing the traditional family model: a married man & woman having children. Steering men towards "manly" activities. Nothing is foolproof but it would help. Now let's assume the second one: "born". It would mean that it is a condition acquired while in the mother's womb. How come we don't yet have techniques to detect this in order to select "gay foetuses" for termination? I'm playing the devil's advocate here, but it is actually an honest question. This being said, I have absolutely no problem with homosexuals doing their own thing. My wife's sister is lesbian, and they are more than welcome to hang out with us. However I do have a problem with people trying to "push" this as normal, considering the above. I wish this couple all the best, but trying to gain media attention was IMO unnecessary.
  5. There's no import duty on computer parts, just the 7% VAT when importing - but in your case, just hide them in your bag and pass in the green line, nobody will care about the bag.
  6. It's not about repeating the government's propaganda, but about being to able to enjoy a meal on a terrace without receiving drafts of smoke, being able to go everywhere without smoke, and not being forced to breathe smoke. Freedom is good, but it becomes bad when someone introduces an irritant in the air. Imagine you're eating peacefully with your wife, and I come beside your table, and start farting. I do it non-stop for 8 minutes ( the average time for a cigarette). I force you to smell all of it because of my "freedom". Not sure you would enjoy it. Smokers cannot smell themselves, but we non-smokers can smell it, and believe me, it stinks.
  7. That's good. It will help transform a vice into revenue for the government. The problem is that too many people smoke because of the image thing - they're men, work in a factory, drive a scooter, so they need to smoke to complement that. This is the kind of stuff that needs to end. At least now, people who decide to continue to make their lungs bleed and smell like garbage rotting under the sun will pay more. Once they get tired of that and they realize that they invest half of their wages into self-destruction, they'll quit. Sure there is contreband, but not many people have the resources to get that. There is a difference between drinking and smoking. Both are hazardous to your health. - Drinking is a social activity that isn't done everyday, and that harms only yourself. - Smoking is a pointless activity done 20 times per day, with devastating health effects, stinks, incomodates people around you, costs money, and serves no purpose. I think Australia has the best system - why not follow them? The first step would be plain packaging - no more "hey, look everyone, I'm smoking expensive Marlboro!". It'll now just be someone stinking and holding a plain ugly pack.

  9. I'm planning on taking my Thai wife to vacation in Europe for 2 weeks at the end of April. She doesn't have a Shengen visa, but last year, I did the citizenship by investment programs in Antigua & Barbuda and in Grenada, granting her 2 additional passports as "spouse of principal applicant" - so she has now 3 passports, and may now travel to Canada / Europe / China at will without needing a visa anymore. I know that Thai immigration is not particularly keen on Thais having 2 nationalities, let alone 3. I found several threads on Thaivisa with people contradicting each other regarding this. We plan on showing her Antiguan passport to the airline check-in staff to be allowed boarding, then using her Thai passport to exit the country, using Antiguan passport to enter & exit Spain, and Thai passport to re-enter Thailand. Therefore, she will only show her Thai passport to Thai immigration staff. Is this likely to cause any issues at all?
  10. The religion of peace strikes again.
  11. I have an unpopular opinion here: I don't think we should give money for free to poor people. There are people who "try" to make a living - selling food, playing a musical instrument, etc. and I think we can give money to those people, as they are earning it. But when it comes to people who are actually poor and do nothing, you must remember one thing: People are poor because they do not know how money works. This means that if you give "free" money to poor people, they will go buy beer and cigarettes, because they do not know how money works. Instead of giving them money, we should give them food, clothes, toys, but not money.
  12. Parents must be accountable for the actions of their kids. This being said, I am sure that a VERY large percentage of that 60,000 bill covers "administrative fees". Why not ask the children to clean the place, and THEN, if anything needs money to be fixed, present the necessary invoices to the parents?
  13. A dude is a dude. Society is binary. Get over it. While we have to treat them like humans, we don't have to accomodate them like that, especially not in prison.
  14. It will be done when hell freezes over. "Someday", maybe, in the future... and by the way, it'll just create an incentive to drive without a licence. Thainess at its best.
