    EU still unhappy with Thai fishing

    I’ve been to Hell a couple of times, and I can definitely say its a beautiful place. Beautiful nature, friendly people and just about zero crime. Hell means luck in Norwegian. Its just religious people who takes those ancient middle-eastern stories literally. In Hell and Norway in general they’re happier than most religious people [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  3. Even though you’re not using chemical fertiliser- and pesticides products, you still need several products for the food to grow effectively and look appetizingly, if you want to sell it (and still make a profit), especially in tropical regions and it requires much more work than regular farming, as well as extra cost for electricity and clean water. Unless you sell it by yourself, you’ll need to find a buyer that is willing to pay what you’re asking. Not easy as the organic food market is a small niche market, and not as much in demand as you may think. The supermarkets already have their large-scale partners and they’re more and more located outside of Thailand, in cheaper countries, and Europe, USA and Australia for the even smaller market that is willing to pay more. ... but yes, you can make it, but there’s no room for thousands of successful organic farmers, at least not today, perhaps in the future if Thailand becomes more organic-minded.

  4. Normally I would agree, but here in Thailand it’s rather the opposite. The more Thai kids listens to their family, the more likely they are to become illogical, impatient, uneducated, planless, moneywasting woowooers themselves, just like their family.

    Monks Defend Fraud TV Host’s Ordination

    Its not just the leadership. Just look at Buddhism as an example, its all about money, wealthy, greedy and corrupt monks, kids becoming monks for money (paid by the village communities), people selling their expensive woowoo nonsense outside and inside temples, believers throwing manmade paper money all around themselves in temples like its suppose to have any superstitious meaning... and it goes on and on, and its always about money. That clearly shows a well organized corrupt system, deliberately praying on vulnerable people. If Buddha was as wonderful as it says he was, then I’m pretty sure this was not what he had in mind. He didn’t even like religions. This is just one religion, and this is seen as one of the most moral ones and probably is. Don’t get me started on the Abrahamic religions, the religions that makes even the most gruesome splatter movies be cute and child-friendly to watch in comparison.

  7. Anyone know if IKEA sell Swedish food at Pick-up Point locations, or is it only at the main larger malls? Nonetheless, good news they’re getting one in Udon. Fairly good quality, good prices and practical solutions, at least compared to most shit sold in Thailand in that price range. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  8. Keep your faith to yourself and your fellow churchgoers, its useless to everyone else. Predicting weather is something people did in the biblical days. Thai Met weather forecasting is done by well educated scientists specialized on atmospheric behavior and uses advanced measuring tools, large data centers and satellites for observation, not some stick-throwing bushmen who goes by faith lol. The world scientific community shares all data and knowledge, and are very honest in their conclusions and methods used. Thai Met sits with the same knowledge and data that meteorologists elsewhere has, and their understanding and interpretation of the data makes them able to forecast the weather with about the same accuracy as other countries. Evidence is important, faith is nothing but absolutely useless, just as you wouldn’t let an uneducated surgeon operate on you, or having wild-guessing faith-prayers judge your case in court or teaching your kids in school. If you don’t know what you’re talking about, then at least have the courage to respect those who have done a lot to achieve that knowledge and then shares their weather forecasts with everyone so we can be safer and make our lives easier.

  9. It says Workpoint (channel 23 at Truevision) has the broadcasting rights in Thailand but I cannot see they have any program set up for the Winter Olympics. I also saw NBC/Sports Illustrated (channel 672) had some commercial for the olympics but again, nothing on their program. Phoenix News (779) is a Korean News channel. I’ve seen them talk about the olympics but I’m assuming it’s just a news channel. Anyone know if the Winter Olympics will be broadcasted in Thailand?

  10. Prepare yourself for incoming missiles! Hundreds of policemen are probably already hiding in the bushes with bags full of cigarette butts they throw around infront of tourists. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  11. I don’t think anyone can really pinpoint who started it all. The political conflicts in Thailand is often said to have started about a century ago, the more realistic scenario is that it started several centuries before that with overthrowing Kingdoms with swords and arrows before governments became overthrown by guns and control of knowledge.

  12. They got one in Udon as well, due to construction. Will it save lives? Yes, which is great, but so many cars shifting lanes at some point is will still cause accidents. Its a lack of creativity, thats what it is. Such a huge problem, and all its worth is just a few cones. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  13. Rip to those geologists, but wasn't the geologists there for a reason, to determine whether it was safe or not? That's why they were hired, I'm assuming. Not sure how Italthai can be sued unless they've done some obvious mistakes. But hey, I'm no lawyer. When people win in lottery, it's an act of God. When something bad happens, it's just God being mysterious... unless something bad happens to someone you don't know, then it's revenge for their sins... Humans and reasoning anno 2018 BC...

  14. That's absolutely utter rubbish dude. There are drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers in Thailand (not enough of them but there are many), as well Temples where addicts and other people who has problems receives help. While I don't have any statistics so I may be incorrect, but it does seem like the recidivism/relapse rate seems to be on par with Northern Europe, especially among the younger ones. I do have a couple of twin nephews-in-law who went off on the wrong foot and was charged with gun possession and some ice at the age of 16. They were sent to rehab for two years and had to do a follow-up program with other prisoners for another 9 months. They got out in July last year and have done fine so far, at least. They don't go to school but they have been working with their father in his car mechanic shop, and seems to be doing well. I did live 4 years in the village outside of Udon and it wasn't uncommon for people to go to temples and stay there for several months to clean up, though its been mixed results from what I've seen, but the point is there is focus on getting people clean, especially among the younger ones and first (drug) offenders. For drug sellers and runners its a different story.

    Accidental gunshot hurts two in Rayong bank

    While it shouldn't happen, it probably happens in just about every country every year. In Norway, where safety is taken very seriously, there's at leased a couple of incidents every year. We know that because Norway police publish all police incidents publicly for everyone to read, while most countries probably don't do that. I suspect it happens more often in Thailand... simply because its THAILAND, but it happens everywhere and once in a while that loose bullet will hit someone, like it did in Norway 2-3 years ago (hit another officer in his foot). That being said, it should have consequences, though I doubt that will be the case in Thailand and no lessons will be learned. Same old, same old...
