  1. Wow! With some of the sophisticated, logical solutions to the carnage on the roads, I feel a Supertramp song comin' on......
  2. Visa credit cards now accepted at all 7-11 outlets

    I wonder, does that include foreign Visa Debit cards?
  3. How to politely turn down sellers in Thailand?

    What I always say is "Mai ow krab, kob khun krab". Krab alone does not mean thank you.
  4. "Junkie - someone who is addicted to illegal drugs", so the poster is somewhat correct. Who's to say whether this guy is addicted or not. Nevertheless, he was in possession of illegal drugs in Thailand, hence the arrest.
  5. Recently, my doctor said I should stop smoking (light smoker about 8/day). I said what about the pollution in the air in Bangkok, should I stop breathing too? He gave me a wry smile.
  6. If your friendly 7-11 cashier doesn't understand "Mai ow tung" (not take bag), try saying "Mai sai tung" (not put in bag). It's the Thai way
  7. Unfortunately, this attitude is entrenched in Thai culture. Perhaps, temporarily, they should employ a motor cyclist to escort ambulances in serious situations. At least until/if a drastic change in attitude. Even if it saves just one life, it would be worth it.
  8. "...were arrested along with the ecstasy pills plus eight grams of cocaine and eight grams of marijuana." I wonder what sentence the drugs will get?
  9. I am a light smoker. I don't believe I am obnoxious or a slob. Can you enlighten me as to how you can determine a person's character traits simply because they enjoy a puff?
  10. A great list! The only one I would take out is Elvis. A nice voice and a pretty face doesn't equate to music talent in my books. As for me, the music died on 9/12/1980. It's all been "muzak" since then.
  11. Of course you do................it should be "mai sai tung"
  12. Headless corpse found in a Thalang drain

    I believe that it may have been possible to identify him by his hat, so.....off with his head!
