  1. I tried livng very cheap for 1 month

    Haha, only if they have a twin who has dropped dead since.
  2. I tried livng very cheap for 1 month

    "couldnt be bothered" I'm always confused by that phrase.
  3. Go-go going as Chinese women fuel Thai tourism boom

    Me so confuse. The article talks about Chinese women coming to Thailand, then we get a segue into Thailand's sex industry without an explanation. Are the Chinese women coming down to work? More flavor to savor! Maybe they are Chinese lesbians swooping down on our dear puying tai!!!
  4. If you're talking about revising the second amendment, chances are - as we say - slim and none. But that is and has been interpreted in a number of different ways over the years. I think there are plenty of ways to handle the gun situation that don't involve modifying the second amendment - some of which may actually be effective!!
  5. Yeah, I can find "bank" in an English dictionary. Thanks, I thought there might be a way I hadn't seen.
  6. Hey, I'm running into the requirement for a bank account with a certain minimum amount of money. Some sources say that it needs to be in a Thai bank, and others don't seem to specify. I'm seeing that people open bank accounts as soon as they arrive (although this might be tricky if your address is at a hotel). Is there any way to open a Thai bank account from abroad, throw some money into it, then be ahead of the game when you arrive?
  7. Wham, bam, no more Spam: Thieves' target nation's favourite in Hawaii

    When I lived in Hawaii, people were putting spam in everything! Spam musubi, spam saimin, spam, spam, spam. I still put spam in my ramen to beef it up. Now I don't know the economics of trading spam for "da kine" (drugs). I'm thinking that in Hawaii there must be locals who can grow plenty "pakalolo" on their property (or somebody else's) but can't afford meat. There's a lot more poverty there than most people realize.
  8. Can't understand the point of the headline. What does it matter how much it cost to build the plant? A man's life is gone and many are injured.
  9. Judge in Yingluck case ruled her ‘not guilty’

    So glad you didn't say "president".
  10. The “Gangs of Urban Turkeys” Terrorizing Massachusetts

    “I am on this account not displeased that the Figure is not known as a Bald Eagle, but looks more like a Turkey. For the Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America… He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on.” -Benjamin Franklin
  11. Stick a couple of Poy-Sian up your nostrils and away you go...
  12. The issue may have begun with the typical mai-bpen-rai thought that ziplines are mostly in the treetops and don't affect the ground very much. So it would be sort of all right if they were in the national park. But as you can see, the Thais cut corners again and began building a ground-level roller coaster.
  13. Looks more like a roller-coaster from the picture. This is probably the attraction: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g1766192-d8850589-Reviews-Monjam_Zipline_Adventure-Mae_Rim.html They must have been bribing officials for years. Imagine this happening at Yosemite or some other national park. Hoping this opens up more wildlife habitat.
  14. I'm sure they speak Engrish lear good.
  15. Craft beer in shops (not bars), where to find?

    Was it the Chiang Mai Craft Beer & Cider Shop that closed? Their website is for shit right now, that would explain it.
