  1. The angle is to work on desparate women who will borrow money to give to scammer.
  2. Mine is on life support. Don't really have a use for it anymore.
  3. For some reason, listening to tons of Grateful Dead.
  4. Some women get scammed because they are simply people and I wasn't aware of Thai women being more clairvoyant than other people. Maybe some are and some are not. Some want to escape poverty and do get tricked. Professional scammers are just that and often good at what they do. People of all races often look down on people marrying outside their race. Maybe less in the USA, but its the world over. People judge others by their looks. What's important is to not care about what others think.
  5. There are plenty of good women on the dating sites. There are also tons of foreigners who are scammers looking to get money from Thai women looking for a foreign husband. There are many middle-class Thai women, true working professionals who are divorced and want to marry a foreigner. It's not hard to find a non-scammer. You just have to know yourself well. The old saying, "Know thyself." If you are clear of mind and heart and are not in a hurry, you can find the right Thai woman online. Not a good Thai woman, but a woman who is the right one for you. I met my wife online. I was in the States (and still am). I simply found someone I could hit it off with. Someone I could converse with and just have an everyday, natural conversation. Since I'm college educated, middle class, office working stiff, I was interested in the same in a woman. My wife put herself through college, was career accountant with the government, and was just herself, plain and simple, when we chatted using Skpe. We "dated" online through Skype and a some visits for 3 years until we decided to get married. I was in no hurry and the moment had to be right. The moment came on the 3rd trip, after seeing each other for maybe hundreds of hours. We literally had 3 hour chat sessions almost everyday. Her friend had a similar background. She met a fellow from England. They are happily married in Thailand. This after her friend had run into a scammer from another country. She's lucky she persisted, because the English fellow is quite nice. Yes, there are scammers in Thailand, maybe too many. But there are also many professional, educated, middle-class women, divorced, looking for a foreign husband. Farang just need to seek them out. Each person, man or woman, needs to take a lot of caution, like you would take caution in any relationship regardless of location or background.
  6. Nong khai hotel we stayed at. Maybe just coffee for breakfast? Can't remember. https://goo.gl/maps/JPM2Acuyu362 โรงแรมดีเฮงดี Mi Chai, Mueang Nong Khai District, Nong Khai 43000, Thailand +66 42 413 595 nice and inexpensive.
  7. My apologies for the belated reply. I'm subscribed to a lot of threads. Nong khai is nice. That's all I know north of Udon. Nong khai had inns and inexpensive hotels and restaurants to walk to. Walking street should be open until 10 pm says wife. The inn is this place. Free breakfast. Wifi. https://goo.gl/maps/Z8aX7QcZGsG2 อุ่นรักริมโขง รีสอร์ท เชียงคาน Aun Rak Rim Khong Resort Chiangkhan 40/12 4 Thanon Sathon Chiang Khan, Tambon Chiang Khan, Amphoe Chiang Khan, Chang Wat Loei 42110, Thailand +66 86 859 8550
  8. Sometimes you need lawsuits that pay out big awards to get companies to notice. People bring up the McDonalds coffee story as frivolous. The eldery woman bought coffee that was at 100C boiling. She had surgery from scalding. She only first asked for money for surgery. McDonalds refused then she sued. For some reason, McD coffee was too hot for a reason. Second, they blew her off. United has a BAD policy for their process to eject people. You are on a plane and get ejected. Then some shitty security police, what do you expect. A Vietnam-American said that both sides were at fault. Okay, this was YouTube comment. Anyway, they guy ejected was a bit of a drama queen and did start a fight. But, hell, I might have done the same thing, I'm ALREADY seated and now booted? Okay, again, I understand, okay, shit happens, you get ejected. So, United was poor in its communication. Also, they should have a policy for ejections as well. Not just bring in Joe Thug security. It's as a terrible thing to have happen, BUT, BUT, its incidents and lawsuits that bring attention to crap like this. Dude, the guy was freaking injured and lost teeth, concussion. And sinus injury.

  9. Hardly on the road, but saw 2 accidents. A car flew off the road and into a tree. Well, just before we arrived. It went about 40 meters off the road. Last night, 2 teenagers on a fairly powerful motorcycle, no helmets, did a wheels and flipped. They were lucky. They landed in their backs in front of us. They promptly got back up and rode away.

  10. I'm in the states and my wife works at a Thai restaurant as a manager. Anyway, if I stop by to see her, she feeds me. She brings food home. You can imagine... Anyway, I've just been trimming the calories, less carbs. But the big thing has been intermittent fasting. I do this during the week. I only eat in a 6 hour window, say 2pm to 9pm. I don't take food to work. I just drink coffee and tea. I work from 5 to 2 or so. It's working. And walking at lunch. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. First time for me. At village. Parade. Food and drink. Blessings to in-laws. Threw water. Baby powder on face and put it on thais. Rode in back of truck. Fell in a reservoir of lillypads and much. No dancing. Sat in a hut as the rain fell. Wonderfully didn't think I would like it. More to come. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. White officers focus on black passenger. Pecking order or preference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 4 people were escorted off the plane. What a mess. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. My brother works in remodeling in the states. Won't go into details as it is disgusting but the hired cleaning ladies walked out of this hoarder condo immediately and never returned. City people came in hazmat garb. I wish I could un-remember what little he told me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
