  1. What is supposed to be queer about it ?
  2. It never ceases to amaze me how incredibly ignorant, lost and confused most people, especially northern Occidentals, are about men's sexuality. It is really quite simple. But I don't need the headache of attempting to educate. I gave up long ago.
  3. I get so tired of all the idiotic terminology. Isn't all sex gay ? And if I am not straight, then what am I? Bent and twisted? I claim to be straight homosexual all the way. And if you call yourself queer, then that's your own problem. Not mine.
  4. Where do they have yoga and meditation classes in Bangkok for free ? I can't find anywhere on thaivisa forums

    Military pledges firm backing for PM Prayut

    That is a strange thing for Abhisit to say, seeing as he and Suthep and the generals are all bosom buddies.

    Teaching in Thailand over 60?

    Not true unless you are talking about beginners only. If you speak clearly like an intelligent person and explain things there is no problem

    Teaching in Thailand over 60?

    I don't believe you. Yes,I have heard some speak fairly well and then some people will exaggerate and flatter them and tell them how incredibly fluent they are. Like people in Taiwan used to tell me. I could learn Thai too if I would ever put my mind to it and take some classes but I am not motivated to.

    Ridiculous! Very few foreigners can speak even passably decent Thai, much less fluently!

    Here is a good, informative introductory lecture on depression. http://www.openculture.com/2014/08/stanfords-robert-sapolsky-demystifies-depression.html

    " takes some trial and error with different drugs to find the best one. " Yes, I have known about these things for years. But after watching this lecture on the OpenCulture website I know that the part about psychomotor retardation hits the nail on the head with me. I am psychologically and intellectually capable of learning about and addressing what I need to do without having to go through trying various medications and trying to communicate with someone who knows nothing about me.

    Where to get help for depression

    I just found a good, informative link to a course by a Stanford university professor "Psychomotor retardation - everything is exhausting to do, to think, to move. Getting going is unbelievably hard. At a chemical level this likely has a lot to do with insufficient dopamine. Dopamine isn't so much the reward chemical as it is the chemical that motivates you to take an action that will lead to a reward. Doubt that the reward will happen and you get no dopamine." https://www.robertsapolskyrocks.com/depression.html

    Where to get help for depression

    The thing that is really debilitating and makes me completely unable to function normally is that I can sleep for only a couple of hours and then wake up and can't sleep again for 2,3 or 4 hours and I always feel completely drained of energy.
