  1. Rubbish. If they care so little about the safety of their offspring, then they shouldn't have any. Even animals are more more protective of their babies than this woman.
  2. The only shocking part was that she was allowed to breed in the first place.
  3. And, of course, we should really blame the Romans and then the Vikings for their expansion into the British Isles for all this mess. Blaming the past is a load of <deleted> whether personal, communal or global. If it wasn't for transportation, I could've been educated at Cambridge instead of ANU. Should I blame the Poms for that??? And, if Khun Prayut wants Thailand to be part of a global scene, he's gotta take it from others, besides the Chinese and the Burmese generals. It's like winning the lottery, there will always be people who'll tell you what to do with your money. You just eat the meat and spit out the bones.
  4. And at least they're not 14 /15 like Thai pimps are good at handing around.
  5. I agree with that entirely. Everyone [police, judges, prosecutors, jury, forensic scientists, lab technicians, warders, etc] involved in the wrong execution of an innocent person shall be put to death. No trials, no appeals allowed. This would ensure that everyone does their job/duty properly.
  6. So after 2 years of these unbridled killings through the war on drugs and over 4,000 deaths, has the flow of drugs stopped/ decreased? Are we all going to church now? Or has nothing really changed except more people are being killed?

    Farangs in Rural Areas - where do you meet?

    Same here. May see them when I go shopping but don't actively seek them out. Never was one for socializing back in Oz and I'm the same here.
  8. This is the way to go {many thanks to David Brown}: The European Commission The European Commission has announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the EU, rather than German, which was the other contender. Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had room for improvement and has therefore accepted a five-year phasing in of "Euro-English". In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make sivil servants jump for joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of the "k", Which should klear up some konfusion and allow one key less on keyboards. There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f", making words like "fotograf" 20% shorter. In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of the silent "e" is disgrasful. By the fourth yer, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v". During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters. After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikultis and everivun vil find it ezi to understand ech ozer. ZE DREM VIL FINALI COM TRU! Herr Schmidt
  9. Good for her! She'll make more money than the local lad whose English is limited to "f%$k off farang" as he zooms past on his motorbike [unless, of course, he stops using and starts selling]. My step-daughter refused to learn English even at Uni. She has a responsible job for an international company, but staff meetings are a pain. The Japanese management speak English and the other Thai staff are getting sick of translating for her. Could be her downfall soon!

    Thaivisa pro app

    Just to tag onto this. I'm not receiving the ThaiVisa newsletter lately. I got one on Sat 9 and then no more. I contacted the administrators and they said that because my newsletter went into the "trash /spam", they stopped sending them. I checked the spam box and there was nothing there. Then one came on Tues into the "junk" box which I transferred to the Inbox and have been using that one ever since to get onto Thaivisa. Any suggestions?
  11. They were here in Ayutthaya last September ranting and raving on about some grand scheme to ease the flooding. It's probably part of their 20 yr plan to be started in the 18th year. They're politicians now....full of piss and wind.

    Spreads for toast, what's available in Thailand?

    But not the tomato sauce ones, Bill. Then again, except for tuna, every fish here seems to come in tomato sauce.
  14. Yes, I think this story is only in the news because a foreigner was caught.
