  1. A truck going the wrong way down a busy road is a tad more dangerous. Lol.
  2. I think she may need more than 1 guard. Good luck to her. She did a very brave thing and hopefully her actions will help other Saudi women in the barbaric hole that is Saudi Arabia.
  3. The lackadaisical approach to just about everything could be the death blow.

    That's more than 20% of the population. Wow!! Bangkok. What a great place to visit. That's the best tourism slogan I can think of this early in the morning.

    The authorities need to consider human life and the health of the people in Bangkok first. They will probably only consider the situation an emergency when certain people's wealth is affected.
  6. I would sue them. The poor man had to get in that filthy, disgusting water.
  7. I can see the haze clearing already.
  8. I find it quite annoying when Thais look down on their neighbouring countries such as Cambodia. We all know what happened in that country about 40 years ago. All or most educated people were executed. Less than 2 generations later Thailand and Cambodia are probably very similar when you compare education levels or standards. That's smug ignorance for you! Also, I am sure the level of spoken English in Cambodia will improve to some degree in the future. It certainly won't here. I might not know much but I know that. I don't feel guilty about criticising Thais any more simply because they have a very high opinion of themselves.
  9. The police have evidence of multiple crimes carried out by the suspect. Maybe they don't.
  10. Unless someone has a massive salary here, homeschooling is the way to go.
  11. Good point. But still not enough of a reason to allow my daughter to go to school here. I'm sure she will enjoy her holidays here every couple of years though.
  12. It would be nice if they could set an example to their students. Teach the students that if you learn English you can have a conversation with someone who isn't Thai. That alone must be worth something. Also, I believe that teachers should encourage their students to be interested in the outside world. But again, from my experience, good luck with that.
