    Thai Navy denies plan to sink ageing battleship

    While in and after leaving the Royal Navy, some retired ships were supposedly sold and made into razor blades. Do not know if that was actually true but why could this vessel not be sold for scrap and turned into something useful? Just curious.

    Decision on paraquat ban to be made on Wednesday

    So, a sugar farmer is more concerned with his wealth than the effect these chemicals have on the health of everybody using what he produces. Maybe, just maybe, if his own health suddenly deteriorated as a result of breathing it in as he is spraying it he may have a change of thinking. Or does he have others do the spraying for him as he hides in a different location so that he does not inhale the toxic substance?
  5. First, it was not a Boat, i.e. Das Boot. Second, did anybody see a single digit appear to point upwards or elsewhere? All I saw was a bunch of fives and those were not from the person who was kicked.
  6. Is Thailand where the Keystone Cops originated? Just curious.
  7. Interesting that it took place at a "...fast foot outlet." Does that mean she could leave at a moments notice by hot-footing it when the authorities arrived? Does not appear to be wearing appropriate enough footwear for that at the bottom of a pair of not the best-looking legs.
  8. Wrong. All mammals can acquire rabies and officially, the three domesticated animals in the U.S.A. that carry and transmit rabies the most to humans are; cats, cattle and third dogs. They do not, as you suggest, develop antibodies in their blood.
  9. The quote above is taken directly from the CityNews article at the top. How do they define "entrepreneur"? Usually, it is used for a person who organises and/or operates a business or businesses and taking on greater than normal financial risks to do so. How can these people be classified as such because their outlay is not a great deal, in fact, most of my experiences in Bangkok and beyond have not been in expensive, well set up places. Rather a lot of them are run down and grubby looking as if the "owner/operator" known virtually nothing about cleanliness and hygiene. I have only been to one location that could be construed as clean and meeting any health standards and that was because the owner, a female, got her training in Bristol in the U.K. Just curious.

    New student IQ test being developed, to launch in 2020

    Good news, especially as it should have been implemented eight years ago, according to WEBFACT.

    63 foreigners arrested in nationwide crackdown

    So, Thailand continues to come up with things that are new countries. The report says that "30 from Myanmars" wherever that may be. It seems that the new intelligence test being developed for students should certainly live up to that standard, as many of the former tests have done. Such comments only add to the wonderment of the intelligence of those in authority and contributes to the confirmation that the education system is not working because it obviously did not work when the writer went through the system. Will the new tests be designed to continue to suppress the intelligence of students and thus allow them to fall even further behind in regional exams and tests? Just read the report about the development of the new IQ tests for students aged between 6 and 15. It states it will be implemented in 2010. Now I really wonder what is going on.
  12. - but at your usual pace, i.e. slowly.
  13. The stitches appear to have been performed in a very unprofessional manner using suture material that is inappropriately thick for the nature of the wound. Looks more as if it would normally be used for a larger animal than a human. Incidentally, it is not the number of stitches used but how they are put in place. Those will probably leave a nasty looking scar. I have had several major surgeries and none of my stitches looked like that although the nature of the operations meant that I do now have scars but not like that will be. In Canada, and in the U.K., many operations are now closed using laser or staples. Both help with faster healing and slightly less unsightly scars.
  14. Never seen them in Toronto, and never seen them in any country that I have visited, except Malaysia (and those are not on the sidewalks but on the side of roads and things must be thrown in over the top, but we did start the BLUE BOX SYSTEM which received many awards. Also, we do have plastic disposable containers that are totally enclosed and divided into three sections; 1 for recyclables, 1 for pure garbage, and 1 for other stuff, each with its own small door through which to deposit the things. The deposits are removed on a fairly regular basis and, unlike around Thai garbage bins, when it is possible to locate them, they are clean because we care about our environment and health.
