  2. The short answer is YES. IF he attacks another country first. He is a mad man who has to be controlled.
  3. Obviously, they've decided to start with the really important stuff first, and then deal with the misc. tiny stuff later in the future....
  4. Benefit of getting Thai credit card?

    As much value as a pink Id card and yellow book for there are better and easier options.
  5. Tv series - Black Lake Didn't mind the start of this new one on the Beeb. Sinister events engulf young and ambitious Johan and his friends when they visit the abandoned Black Lake ski resort, the scene of a horrific crime.
  6. Police arrest 11 Africans in Bangkok for overstaying visas

    Only 11? I can bet my head that even 5 inter-provincial double-decker buses also not enough to transport them from Soi Nana to the police station!!!
  7. Benefit of getting Thai credit card?

    I have a Citi Visa and a Thai Airways Amex. get a few discounts, but pretty much quit using them when a it a Chase card with no foreign transaction fees.
  8. Toyota Hilux Cracked Piston TSB

    There is no recall. The TSB relates to 2006 - 2014 Hilux and Landcruiser with the 1KDFTV engine. This engine was used in the Thai Hilux at that time. Apparently the issue has been known in Australia. Toyota source the Hilux for Australia from Thailand. Pretty good chance the Thai models use the same pistons and injectors.
  9. Police arrest 11 Africans in Bangkok for overstaying visas

    It is an interweb, rule that they're is at least one grammar Natzi in every forum, chat group and comments section. Sorry, that's just the way it is. 😎
  10. You need to have worked for 3 years in Thailand & have been married to a Thai national for 3 years to be eligible for citizenship. The other route is 5 years PR if single. See the excellent thread on Thai Visa & visit Special Branch in BKK next to central world for more information.

  14. 90 days overstay

    How would immigration be able to ban him for 5 years if he voluntarily turned himself in to immigration. The rules state if caught with an overstay. Also the judge has the authority to waive the banning if he if he feels the ban is not justified.
  15. End for Kodi users in sight

    Exodus Kodi Addon Removed Due to Copyright Complaint (plugin.video.exodus) By TV ADDONS On 09/23/2017 Exodus has been removed from our site as the result of a complaint made by Bell, Rogers, Videotron and TVA in a recent lawsuit against our web site. Prior to June 12th, 2017, we had never received any form of DMCA or takedown notice mentioning the Exodus Kodi addon. As far as we know, development of the Exodus Kodi addon has ceased. Exodus was developed by different developers over its lifetime. We must warn that in using the Exodus Kodi addon you might be breaking the law, at least that’s what several big corporations are claiming. There are no statistics available to us as to how many users actually used the Exodus addon for Kodi, although some sources claim it to be quite why. This addon appears to have been used to scrape a few dozen online sources. It appears that several new Kodi addons including the also blacklisted Covenant addon are based on Exodus code. Any addons that we find to be based on the Exodus code will be preemptively blacklisted. We have heard about recent claims that Exodus is still being maintained, we have no part in it and want nothing to do with it. For the record, we are not removing anything from users devices, we have simply removed traces of the addon from our web site and forums. Read the fully story from tvaddons.co here.
  16. Hope not, but who knows... That would be a new level of corruption... LOL
  17. Umm..maybe his wife is talking about lottery ticket prices, moto taxi riders wearing jackets, beach chairs and such important matters?
  18. So USA wanted a united Korea under democracy. USSR wanted a united Korea under communism. They both share blame for playing their stupid Cold War games through innocent proxies.
  19. Benefit of getting Thai credit card?

    ^^^Yup. You have to deposit and lock up tens of thousands of baht and then get charged for using your own money. A laugh riot!
  20. I don't know any details of this visa yet, but the reason they have started offering it is to sell Thai insurance company insurance policies. I would guess that your existing policy will not be accepted, and you'll need to take out one of the policies offered by one of the sponsoring insurance companies.
  21. Too late to become a bitcoin millionaire?

    I read an article recently that suggested some people were pushing to increase the supposed limit on the quantity of Bitcoins ... and of course in theory there's no limit on the creation of other cryptocurrencies. Also, while it's supposedly difficult to impossible for governments to end the existence of these pseudo-currencies, they can prohibit/restrict the use of them for actual commercial transactions. A lot of people who owned their own homes & were feeling comfortable with rising real estate values got a shock when the the 2007/2008 financial crisis showed that that was a bubble. Of course if you owned your own home you had a place to live before and after prices plummeted, but a lot of people considered their homes as investments and planned to sell them, downsize to cheaper, smaller places, and retire in part on the capital gains. As to backing currencies with metals, gold is only worth what the market is willing to pay. It doesn't have much practical use. Silver and some other metals have industrial uses, but in a crisis both gold or Bitcoin could either be very valuable or, at least in the case of gold, make a pretty doorstop. Depending on who you believe, he was operating his scheme from the 1990's or 1970's until he was arrested in 2008. You have to laugh at the supposed "protection" provided investors by the SEC who had been receiving tips about the fraud for nearly as long as it was operating. Of course the people who actually believed Bernie was generating those returns no matter what the markets did were extraordinarily gullible.
  22. Repairing Portable Spa

    If it's not rocket science,could you not give it a go yourself,plenty of places selling PVC pipe, just cut out the leaking part and replace,you will probably do the job as good as a thai plumber . regards worgeordie
  23. Laptop has slowed to near stop...Help

    You can check your temp with 'RealTemp GT' application, it's free and virus free. Download from : https://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/
  24. I'll tell you what, though, Basil . . . most Thai cars look like they've just come out the car-wash; taxed, tested, tyred or otherwise . . . a matter of priorities, I guess.
  25. Eating Rice

    If you take a look at this site (refer to the download fact sheet), they agree with the info Crossy posted. I doubt they are part of the rice industry. http://www.gisymbol.com/diabetes/ The Glycemic Index Foundation (GIF) We are a not-for profit health promotion charity formed in 2001 by The University of Sydney and Diabetes NSW.
  26. You first will need to apply for a change of visa status to get a 90 day non immigrant visa (category O) entry. You will need a letter from the bank confirming your account and the balance in it and copies of your bank book. You will need at least 15 day remaining on your 60 day entry or the 30 day extension of it to apply for the change. Then during the last 30 days of the 90 day entry from the visa you will apply for a extension of stay based upon retirement. The 800k baht will need to be in the bank for 60 days on the date you apply. The written requirements state that the 800k baht only need to be in the bank on the date you apply for the change to get the visa but Pattaya/Jomtien immigration has insisted it be in the bank for 60 days on the date you apply according to reports. If they want that it appears you have enough time to do it if you apply for a 30 day extension of your 60 day entry.
