  1. If a person really wants to commit "suicide" using this method, why not learn to do so in the correct fashion. Never attempt to draw a "weapon" across the wrist because it does not work as people believe it should. Rather, take the device of choice, find the artery, insert the point/blade into the artery and draw it along the artery. That way suicide is achieved, admittedly, rather bloodily but it does work. Slashing across the wrist may damage tendons and skin, producing some blood, but rarely has a person been successful in achieving their goal. Rather, the "slash" is a call for help, although most people believe it is serious attempt to end a life, which it is not.
  2. Why can't people use homosexual instead of gay? Such "partnerships" are against what we are taught in the Holy Bible by God. Do I wish them well in their future life as many others do? No way, but rather the opposite.
  3. As a retiree, I am fortunate because my bank in Canada allows me to make two ATM withdrawals each month while I am out of the country. However, it is 5:08 pm on 29 March, 2017 and 10 minutes ago I went to withdraw money from a TMB ATM. All went well until I was asked if I agreed to pay the 220 Baht fee for the transaction. CANCELLED immediately as this fee increase is nothing but another Thai banking scam. Beware, look before pushing those buttons.
  4. So, the parents thought they had laid their complaints to the correct authority but are told they must put the complaints in writing to a different place. Kind of gives the school the chance to do some housekeeping and clean things up a bit even to the point that there will be little or no reason for the parents to complain.
  5. Sorry, fullcave but I believe you have got the last part wrong. Surely, your quotation should read, "...here they call it safety last."
  6. Regarding the delaying of ambulances which results in critically ill persons dying because they cannot receive appropriate treatment at a hospital, there are at least three solutions to help overcome this problem. First, the qualifications to obtain a driver's licence should much more stringent. Virually anybody can get such a document without even taking a test. (The tests are just jokes anyway.) Second, anybody who is found to obstruct an ambulance should be heavily fined, have their licence revoked - permanently - have their vehicle confiscated for a period of time specified, and applied by law. To the second suggestion, why not institute a similar practise to most countries in the west - use the point system and when found to be driving with no points, heavily fine or imprison the driver. Third, improve the quality of the ambulance staff so that they have the euipment and knowledge to treat patients en route to hospital. At the same time, improve their communication systems so they can send and receive appropriate information to a qualified person specialising in emergency situations. It is doubtful, though that such steps will ever be implimented in Thailand as they do not originate from Thailand.
  7. Block the content and paste it into Google translate. Block, copy, and save the Thai translation as a Word file then simply print the file. Also, print the original English so that the reader can see the original script.
  8. The grandmother reports that doctors found blood on the brain of the child on two separate occasions, amongst other injuries including damaged neck vertebrae. However, who can believe her comments as the facts about the findings do not appear to have been reported when found? 'nuf sed.
  9. I would like to know which tests were used to measure his IQ as the two standard tests used in psychology only go to 140 and then special tests must be used. The "normal" IQ range is from 90 to 110 then there is a big drop off. Further, there is no known correlation between the size of the person and their IQ. If you research correctly, this person is not even mentioned as being in the top 5 people having the highest IQ. Check him out on GOOGLE to find some "home truths" about his claims.
  10. This is not new or news. Rather, such statements have been broadcast in media for decades in the west. If Thais find this to be "new" information, where have they been hiding their inability to uncover/except such information? It seems as if Thais announce such items as if they are real news but they are so far out of date with many things that it seems they will never catch up with the rest of the world.
  11. As a Clinical Psychologist may I say that the person who posted the comment, "Person(s) with psychological problems are usually not stupid, they are in need of help." does not know what he/she is talking about. People with psychological problems run the gambit from the highest to the lowest of the measures we use. I ask this poster to substantiate, with documented research, this statement because I would like to increase my knowledge in this field.
  12. Now you know why the Thai government started the scheme of allowing Chinese tourists in without visas. Planes arriving from Chinese departure locations are full but they do not always stay in BKK but move along. They do get counted as "visiting" BKK because that is where many enter the country.
  13. Remember that a cathedral originally was built to hold a "sacred/artifact" a relic supposedly from Christ, or a disciple, such as a piece of the "original" cross, a bone of some kind from a disciple, etc and they were revered and prayed to and money paid to "assist" in the maintenance and protection of the artifact. Catholicism was not even founded by any of Christ's disciples or apostles but by a person known as Simon Magus. Buddhism is not a religion but a philosophy/way of life to reach nirvana for which one must be reincarnated many times to achieve. Both have pulled the wool over the eyes of their "followers" over the years.
