  1. Thailand Elite & 90 day report

    I have the Thailand Elite visa, inhabit the Bangkok area, and for whatever reason have never been able to report online. I just have the Thailand Elite people do it for me.
  2. Bad Experience With Uber

    The Uber staff for Uber Thailand are Thai, so Thainess applies.
  3. Uncontrollable Thai child

    There are plenty of fish in the sea. Throw this one back.
  4. Neo-Nazi has swastika tattoos removed after befriending black probation officer

    hahahahahaha - they're on the MSM news. Talk about a willfully blind fellow traveler! Both fascism and communism are totalitarian ideologies. Of the two, fascism is actually the lesser evil - but that's not saying much.
  5. Neo-Nazi has swastika tattoos removed after befriending black probation officer

    Still waiting for Antifa members to have communist tattoos removed after they acknowledge the fact that communism was responsible for more than 100 million deaths in the 20th Century . . .
  6. ASH Thailand says e-cigarette is harmful to health

    Total BS. Vaping is the one sure-fire way to get off the analog cigs, and avoid the 3,000 cancer-causing chemicals to be found in them.
  7. I want/need to stop smoking.

    Zyban works. Chew gum or somesuch for the psychological issues.
  8. AIS Fibre - slow international downloads this week?

    I found it: http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/cables-hit-by-typhoons-but-internet-links-here-intact Thanks!
  9. AIS Fibre - slow international downloads this week?

    Which cables? URI? Thanks much!
  10. On the 50/20 AIS Fibre package (fastest I can get in my building), I usually get ~50mb/sec download speed from sites in Asia, & ~25mb/sec from North America. For the last 3-4 days, I still get 50mb/sec download speeds from sites in Thailand & Singapore, but drastically reduced speeds from anywhere else in the world. My AIS PlayBox IPTV service is rock-solid. Any impressions from other AIS Fibre customers in Bangkok would be greatly appreciated!
  11. Asking Salary...

    hahahaha You're joking, right? Thailand is known in the IT industry for systematized, pervasive incompetence at all levels.
  12. I guess smoking really kills!
  13. Yes - it says that this guy should never have been allowed to enter the United States. People who're dead would be alive today if he'd been kept out.
  14. Foreign tourists wrongfully arrested for fraud in Phuket

    This is incorrect. The United States uses an adversarial system (except for traffic tickets and a few other administrative issues), but the police conduct investigations and it's up to the relevant district attorneys (local, state, or federal) whether to empanel a grand jury to press charges. So, an adversarial system does not imply that no investigations are conducted. In Thailand, the investigatory process largely focuses on the contents of each party's wallets and bank accounts, which then determines which cases result in arrests and trials. Moving to an inquisitorial system simply means that the courts would often get first crack at investigating the contents of said wallets and bank accounts, rather than having to queue up behind the police.
