  1. Gen Prawit: Don’t worry I can clarify

    Is this what is meant when they say "We are keeping a good watch" on corruption? Just asking................... It does really also have "a good ring" to it, doesn't it?.
  2. Gen Prawit: Don’t worry I can clarify

    And that quote is from Ronald Reagan who said that the nine most frightening thing in the English language are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help." Still appropriate even when translated from Thai.
  3. Never mind. He will wish he had 4 mouths soon.
  4. Snakes

    With the possible exception of Malayan Pit Vipers which cannot be relied to behave them selves. Run away, do nothing and wait till you have moved away or attack without warning. I have killed several who did not attack but most accounts describe them as unpredictable.
  5. The Curious Case of a Child Who Can’t Eat Anything But Peaches

    And how many are conventionally considered to be edible and palatable?
  6. Another quality disciple of Buddha
  7. My favourite quote from the original Batman movie: "Doesn't it make you feel safe to know that they are up there doing their job?"
  8. I agree. So she is not a Nordic blond. He should be there not here. I think most of us find her quite attractive without even experiencing her personality, which I am sure is as sunny as her smile. (Trying not to sound like a dirty old man.) But she looks a sweetie.
  9. There are two very old and well entrenched cultural traditions that keep Thailand where it is. And it is a very finely tuned self perpetrating system that keeps them both from unravelling. (or so I'm told. ) But we are both off-topic. 555
  10. Video: Thais tricked by "farang" roadside con man

    Cheap? Who thinks he only does it once a day? Could be a nice little earner for him. Eight hours work, 200 baht of gas in the bike and 30 or 40 suckers. Grand Theft Auto.
  11. So, in other words you agree with me? At 68 this guy will never live long enough to see his money back.
  12. Probably not. It's where and how you meet them that frequently has a big bearing on it. It is hard for Farang men to meet decent Thai women. If you met a girl in a brothel back home would you expect to marry her? Yes I no have two friends with good marriages to heart-of-gold wives met under less than ideal circumstances. But many/most fall for problem ones. There is a lot of damaged women out there in barland. But very few sweeties and I have met some of them.
  13. Caveat Emptor is I believe what you are referring to. From my 13 year old latin class. Mensa Mensa mensam etc,. Do you live here or not? If you spent time here you would have come across many stories of falangs in the right who failed to get true justice. It also applies to poor Thais when fighting rich or connected people. Yes, corruption happens everywhere including my "back home" country. But certain countries put corruption and bribery onto a whole different level. This is one of those places. And when it comes to trying to right wrongs the risks of death are so much higher. There are many people who have died here while involved in litigation. Yes you may have a chance in theory and pure law, but it can cost 5,000 baht here or even less, to have an opponent killed. It all depends on how rich or well connected the people you are fighting here, are. To succeed in getting justice here under some circumstances you may have to be rich, committed, careful, brave, AND LUCKY to live to benefit from your efforts. Better to just leave the money at home if you would need to fight at all costs to win it back here. Rule (1) (in several places above) applies.
