  1. What a farce. The politicians are either too scared to veto the Armed Forces, or are receiving part of the money (even the brainy Abhisit defended the GT200). And the Thai media are too timid to even scratch at the surface of obvious frauds. But I must applaud the Army for admitting that the blimp is worthless. I await the Admiral to step forward and say that the aircraft carrier is a useless albatross.
  2. The Prime Minister told everyone in Thailand to wear "auspicious-coloured" clothes on Friday for that Special day - but the PM's own wife (the Yellowest of yellows) apparently did not get the memo and wore black clothing. Patriotic citizens noticed this, and posted photos. The Govt tried to ban the offensive photos, got lambasted by social media, and had to back down and claim that they weren't really serious about the attempt at censorship, "misunderstanding" and other usual excuses. Nevertheless, it was an enormous faux pas, so I suspect the Wife will be in the dog house and keep a low profile for a while.
  3. What on earth were the Govt intelligence services doing before the hospital bomb? Instead of doing useful work monitoring terrorists, they were probably too busy trying to close down Facebook and various other innocuous websites which happen to host photos which really belong in the "People of Walmart" category. And instead of investing money in training a corps of counter-intelligence professionals, they spend billions on submarines. A few more blunders, and the resemblance to African despots of the 80's would be increasingly justified.
  4. Video reveals little girl being pulled in to the water by sea lion

    "The kid was feeding the male sea lion breadcrumbs ..." What rubbish reporting. Breadcrumbs are for small fish, not marine mammals.
  5. In the past 10 days, there have been many more articles in the "foreign" media about a FB video taken in a public German mall than in the last year. The Thai govt have made a blunder by issuing threats, just to ingratiate themselves with the "Institution". Shooting the messenger, a global behemoth, is never a good strategy. If only they had just been silent - no-one outside Thailand cares what happens here, and there would have been very few articles in the foreign media.
  6. Ha Ha Ha - waste of time painting these lines, as lane discipline is a rare trait in TH.
  7. I wonder why the Police, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, Ministers and even the PM (with his Article 44 powers and amnesty) are petrified, and so do not want to get involved?? Scary.
  8. Blaming the guard makes no sense, as does climbing walls at 1 am . A series of bad decisions resulted in a tragic accident, I've lived in many condos in several countries, and have never met a "security guard" who give out keys to private apartments without authorisation.
  9. Not sure if I need Uber in Bangkok, but would love to have their service in Phuket and Chiang Mai.
  10. Woody Allen. How an insecure, neurotic, ordinary-looking weakling can charm great-looking girls with his wit, and make people laugh.
  11. We need a PM like Hugh Grant in Love Actually to stand up to the American Prez. Instead, unfortunately, we have the wet noodle May.
  12. Trump: "Don't blame me, someone told me about it. Besides, Sweden is such a stupid nation - who the hell names their country after a lowly root vegetable? Sweden is now so full of Muslims and other refugees that it should be renamed Turnipstan."
  13. Toll booth protocol

    They eliminated the deposit for the kit a couple of years ago, so there's little impediment to getting an Easy Pass. Well worth it if you use the expressway often - saves me up to 2 minutes a day, which adds up to an amazing 10 hours a year.
  14. A thin-skinned leader who doesn't like independent investigative journalism, who abhors criticism, who is way in over his head & out of his depth/competency, and who is unusually fond of grandiose expensive white elephants (submarines/walls) .... sounds like someone else I know
