  1. You need to do Thailand Customs "Paperless Registration". I don't want to post links to another site, but the information is out there if you search for it. I did it at the Customs Building in Klongtoey, and yes... it is free, with the exception of having to pay a few baht for tax stamps.
  2. Slightly misleading topic title.... I expected Thailand Immigration.
  3. Whatever the correct story is... there is no dispute that the bargirl broke a pool cue over the guy's head. This is not "reasonable force" for dealing with a drunk guy. She could have killed him, and should be prosecuted as such. Why do the cops need to re-interview people? Probably to see who comes up with the most cash.
  4. 418 deaths over 7 days = 60 per day. I wonder what the daily average is for every other day of the year that is not one of the seven dangerous days? Seems to me that every day is a dangerous day, and the daily count is probably not far below the Songkran dangerous day count.
  5. Gotta figure that the land there is worth billions, especially when redeveloped into shopping malls and highrises, but unfortunate to see another green area in the center of Bangkok get swallowed up by the concrete jungle.
  6. Who can they mate with? As far as I am concerned, Thai officials can mate with themselves.
  7. Thailand actually does this better than Canada. Beaches have stone property markers that look like milestones to define where the private land starts and where the public beach begins. Unfortunately these often get removed by the property owner. In our native Canada, the high tides leave no definitive marker other than garbage and driftwood.

    Serial Dutch pedophile arrested in Hua Hin

    And 119% from 113 cases.
  9. I was particularly impressed by the box full of sex toys on the bed behind them.
  10. I never understand why these stories are news. Returning things that are left in taxis and hotels are just common decency, and in many places are the law. In places like this, the headlines and shocking news would be "Van driver steals 3,300 euros from tourist".
  11. " Sawang Boriboon medics desperately tried to save his life with CPR" reads to me like they were not successful. If the guy survived, and is in the hospital, I hope that he makes a full recovery. Too bad it wasn't the district chief himself that got jolted. If it was him, something might get done.
  12. If the job is something that a foreigner can do and be paid in cash and avoid taxes, the Thai will be paid in cash also. Are you naive enough to believe that every Thai honestly and dutifully reports and pays tax on their cash income?

    Heavy rains forecast nationwide

    " Some roads in urban areas are submerged under 30 centimeters of water with pot holes allowing flooding up to 50 centimeters. The roads are no longer able to be driven by personal vehicles " Methinks that roads with 20cm deep potholes were already unable to be driven by personal vehicles before the rain started.
  14. Why do they call it a 10 year visa when in fact it is only a 5 year visa? What will be required after 5 years to obtain a further 5 years? This sounds like a 30 year lease that is "guaranteed renewable" for 2 more periods of 30 years, when there is really no guarantee at all.
