    Hour long power cut causes chaos at Bangkok shopping mall

    No doubt there will be an increase in the birth rate in the Bangkok Metro area in 9 months time. So people have also been reported to have spent some time "talking to each other".

    Health Department urges people to help reduce e-waste

    Acoording to the Pollution Control Department there are, well, err, well, none. This is their view on the current situation.  22 permitted factories related to e-waste collecting and dismantling (2010).  No specific license for recycling e-waste.  No formal recycling factory of e-waste in Thailand.  No mechanical large-scale dismantling equipment.  Only manual dismantling with simple tools is used.  Most of e-wastes goes to informal sectors, i.e. waste pickers, waste buyers, junk shops, waste-recyclers, and waste re-processors.
  3. If the TuK Tuk drivers around the Grand Palace and Wat Pho enter they would be clear winners. They have been telling the same story for at least 20 years and are expert at it.

  13. From another source the head of the US cave rescue commision indicated the problems with drilling would be; The need to construct roads, infrastructure to get drilling rigs in. The need for a complete cave survey to pinpoint the boys actual location. Otherwise it would be difficult be sure where to drill. He called it "A needle in a haystack problem".

    Doctor helps Chiang Rai cave rescue preparations

    Is sarcasm really needed? Not sarcasm. Gallows humor is needed sometimes as grim and ironic humor in a desperate or hopeless situation often covers the desperation we all feel.

    Mushroom picker found in Nam Phong forest

    She is expected to be "lost" for the next 30 years, unless her statements are found to be helpfull, then her time in the wilderness will be halved.
  16. "The reason they gave was due to the fact that sales of tobacco products has dropped after a tax hike in September 2017. This has left the government with stockpiles of tobacco they wish to use up before purchasing more" This action is indicative of the current government, refusing to buy produce that nobody wants. B'stards, I tell you, abosolute B'stards.

    Court orders B21m assets of former Pheu Thai MP seized

    Thats not "unusually rich" for heavens sake it is not even rich............... "The value of these watches is more than 30 million baht [$1.2 million] already and yet his income — which comes from taxpayers — is around … 2 million baht [A$94,000] a year,"" Now that is rich, but again, not "unusually" for a member of the Junta. Prawit would not even give him the time of day!
  24. "The Party did not seek power for its own ends, but only for the good of the majority. That it sought power because men in the mass were frail cowardly creatures who could not endure liberty or face the truth, and must be ruled over and systematically deceived by others who were stronger than themselves. That the choice for mankind lay between freedom and happiness, and that, for the great bulk of mankind, happiness was better. That the party was the eternal guardian of the weak, a dedicated sect doing evil that good might come, sacrificing its own happiness to that of others. " George Orwell 1984 "The land will be good soon Let us return happiness to you, the people Today, we will be tired [because of our mission], we know We offer to fight the danger Lives of soldiers will not surrender This is our promise" Return Happiness to Thailand.
