    Thais not yet in the habit of driving safely

    So you prefer unnecessary death and carnage to speeding fines and reasonable surveillance for the protection of all road users. Be careful what you wish for sir.
  2. ..saying that, you could be shot for a lot less in Thailand. (Was n't 5000baht the latest market price mentioned in ThaiVisa?)
  3. Jeez you should hope someone never gives you the depth of empathy and compassion you dole out to others. Have no heart? Are you unable to put yourself in her shoes? And please don't give us the line that she should have had insurance, that is just not the point.
  4. Ah but that would not allow the medical mafia in the land of sins to stiff the unfortunates would it?
  5. Have a look here. http://www.aeva.asn.au/wiki/knowledge-base A good resource. The bottom line is EV's will displace ICE cars eventually and big uptake by way of new cars is just around the corner. Few will want the headaches and unreliability of ICE cars and the cost of running and maintaining them.
  6. As was earlier stated, this will impact on the kingdom's investment rating and if article 44 is used, it will scupper Thailand's chances of maintaining a good sovereign risk reputation.
  7. They steal it from the public, then they give it back to the public. Can't you see how it benefits, yes, you go it: the PUBLIC!
  8. No kidding? If it were a business or private person that did this, it would be called a crime!

    Thailand could do with a few of these machines!

    This idea is light years ahead of Thailand. Far too smart and progressive an idea for here.
  10. Very healthy and indeed certainly good for gut probiota count. I'll take my chances at McDonalds however.
  11. For once racial profiling focuses on a particular colour of Farang. Well at least it means less watchful eyes on the traditional colour! And of course it's always the poor Thai being exploited and never a Thai woman taking anything!
  12. Those who block the drains ...Care not for consquence or matter ..5hit for brains No use of grey matter Authorities worse than you can tell ... Make the place a living hel The working man just goes his way ..No excuse for this today

    American man falls to his death at Patong condo

    “Wounds on his back” specifically called out in the article says to me he was probably stabbed. Unlikely a fall from this height would inflict “back wounds” sufficient enough to report at least.
  14. Thai xenophobes at it again. Never stops!

    End of fossil fuel is near: industry

    With battery technology the focus of big R&D budgets puts battery costs on the same price decline curve as solar PV has seen. The lowest cost of electricity (LCOE) now demonstrably comes from renewables.The LCOE calcs INCLUDE the cost of all required backup and storage needed. The renewables revolution has just started and judging early adopter countries with higher power costs is to ignore the rate of cost declines the RE industry is seeing today. Coal fired power is unfinanceable and who is going to invest in the more costlier solution in any investment scenario? Reliability due to decentralised generation and improved n+1 factors will improve when compared to the larger scale conventional base-load generation philosophy. Things in this space are moving very quickly and the power generation landscape is going to surprise everyone especially the policy makers who find difficulty in the race to keep up.
