  1. Seems to be a favoured tactic of the Thai police. Lots of videos on Youtube of them kicking people off moving bikes: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=ตำรวจ+ถีบรถจักรยานยนต์ https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=ถีบมอเตอร์ไซค์+ตำรวต
  2. Advice re Samsumg Models

    Is there no way you could update the Galaxy Win from Android 4.1 to a later version? Or does Android 7.0 not work on it?
  3. The Dutch have a tradition of several centuries of successful flood management. In the 17th century, the Dutch engineer Cornelius Vermuyden introduced Dutch land reclamation methods to England. Commissioned by the Crown to drain Hatfield Chase in the Isle of Axholme, Lincolnshire, Vermuyden was knighted in 1629 for his work and became an English citizen in 1633. In the 1650s, he directed major projects to drain The Fens of East Anglia. The Thais should call on the Dutch for some expertise here and sort it out once and for all, although unfortunately I can't really see this happening.
  4. All the Thai comments seems to be on the Farang's side.

  6. Entire body hurting.

    See 10 doctors, get 10 different diagnoses. Plus the privilege of being charged for it. The pain may even be caused by the anti-cholesterol drug he's on, prescribed by a doctor.

  8. Looks like they got it out already but it doesn't look too healthy.
  9. @Peterw42 Not necessarily. There's a €500 note which would only require 12 of them.Even the €200 note would only require 30. Cross-posted with kotsak.
  10. Unregistered drones BANNED in Thailand

    Thanks. If they don't keep them, rather than going to the trouble of printing them out, maybe they would accept just seeing them on a camera screen.
  11. Unregistered drones BANNED in Thailand

    Hi Ular, The photos of the drone that Richard said they required, is that hard copy photos ie on photographic paper, or will bringing down some jpgs on a memory stick for them to copy to their computer suffice?
  12. Blade Runner fans?

    Apparently not. If you read the thread, it's drifted onto other films in several other posts eg The Beach, Dune, Blood Money, The Great Gatsby, Duellists etc Do keep up old bean.
  13. Blade Runner fans?

    Not sure that's right. They had a map. Why would they take that circuitous route? The whole movie was about how difficult to get to and hidden the beach was. Hence the tricky route to get there. Anyway, thought it was a ridiculous film. It was set in Thailand, but any Thai characters were almost non-existent. The only time I seem to remember a Thai actually saying something in the film was when one of the Thai drug runners said HUP PAHK - 'Shut your mouth' to someone. The whole story seemed like something a 14 year old might write without too much thought put into it. If it had ended up with the clichéd, "Then I woke up and it had all been a dream", it wouldn't have been out of place.

    The big flaw in the film The Beach was that the island was meant to be almost impossible to reach: DiCaprio and friends had to swim there from the mainland and then jump off waterfalls à la Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid to reach it. However once there, when the islanders had to go and get supplies, suddenly they were miraculously able to leave and return by boat. One film which does quite well in capturing a first visit to Thailand from a Western point of view is, IMO, Butterfly Man (2002).
