  1. Google is your friend. I got the following information in less than 30 seconds from the US Embassy website in Thailand... https://th.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/thai-visas-americans/ Retirement Visas Retirement visas for Thailand are available to foreigners 50 years of age or older. These visas are valid for only one year and employment of any kind is strictly prohibited. According to Thai immigration, applicants must meet the following qualifications: Applicant must be able to provide proof of a pension or other regular income from a source outside of Thailand; Applicant’s pension or other regular income must be no less than the equivalent of 65,000 Baht per month; Alternatively, the applicant may meet the financial requirement by maintaining a Thai bank account with a minimum amount of 800,000 Baht. (Applicants will need to show that they have 800,000 Baht in savings each year when they renew their visa.) Any applicant married to a Thai citizen may be able to receive a visa on that basis rather than retirement. For additional requirements and information, please consult the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the Royal Thai Embassy in Washington, D.C. websites.
  2. Well, I guess I'm the exact opposite of you. I could live without the bacon or beer, but I insist on hookers for both breakfast and dinner. .

    California burns: Where’s the president?

    Duh, he's playing golf again. He can’t be bothered by scores of people being burned to death or thousands of homes burning to the ground.
  4. There is a priority immigration line in between the 2 general immigration lines. If I remember correctly it's opposite gate D5.

    Foodland supermarket coming to Royal Garden!

    Yes...but they have some unbelievable sales ?
  6. Either way it means on or after your 15th birthday. That is 15 years because you're not 1 year old until your 1st birthday. Likewise, you turn 15 on your 15th birthday, so you are suddenly "over 15" and "over 15 years" and "15 years old" all at the same time.
  7. Motor sailors are popular for several reasons. They're far more economical to run than a yacht because you can use the wind rather than diesel fuel to propel the boat. They're much quieter than a yacht when using the sails, and you eliminate all of those diesel fumes you would be inhaling. There's a certain nostalgic that goes along with sailing...some folks just hate motor yachts, and they're often called "stinkpots"
