  1. What are these Thai letters?

    I think the last one should be ซอ โซ่ and not ชอ ช้าง. Easily confused!
  2. Chaophraya River back and nowadays

    Looks like they would become oxbow lakes in the absence of dredging.
  3. I remember Georgie Fame. Alan Price was great, wasn't he? A passing era.
  4. Seems hard to believe one rogue person could go though multiple authorizations and checks to set it off. May not have been an accident and actually been a real test of the missile warning system due to Hawaii's proximity to North Korea. They may have wanted to see it worked and there was no mass panic etc.
  5. Revealed: Thailand’s fastest baby

    Video of the event. They also had them dress up in white coats and stethoscopes in the hope it would inspire them later in life to become doctors.
  6. YouGov are the same kind of official, 'trusted' sources who incorrectly predicted a Clinton victory last year. These are paid professional pollsters who got the result wrong. Nice work if you can get it. https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2016-election-forecast/ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/11/09/how-wrong-were-the-polls-in-predicting-the-us-election/
  7. I didn't say he did. LBC radio who took the poll, broadcasts to London, a cosmopolitan city with many religions and ethnicities. It has hourly local news, weather and traffic reports. Yet the city Khan claims to represent voted overwhelmingly in favour of a Trump state visit when over 28,000 were polled. If the poll had been taken from outside London in more rural areas with a greater white population, the results could have been skewed even further in his favour. You argue more 'scientific' polls would give a different picture, without defining what 'scientific' means. Do you mean the US polls from last year which all (bar one) incorrectly predicted a Clinton win against Trump? https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2016-election-forecast/ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/11/09/how-wrong-were-the-polls-in-predicting-the-us-election/
  8. Er...Yougov, who you quote, only two years ago incorrectly called the 2015 UK election as a hung parliament or even a narrow win for Ed Milliband's Labour party, when in reality the Conservatives won a clear majority. Looks like your sources who you put so much faith in are sometimes garbage, too. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/general-election-2015/12077405/Polling-companies-admit-they-got-2015-election-wrong-by-ignoring-the-views-of-pensioners.html
  9. Khan said he's not welcome. It's clear what I meant. Don't misquote me.
  10. Er..You seem to be plucking things from thin air. I'm not American. So, that and the rest of your post seeming to accuse me of US bias because I'm American doesn't apply or make sense. It's also hard to work out if you're American or British and what side you're arguing from. As to lecturing me what the Brits think, you seem out of touch. Yesterday Sadiq Khan's lecture at the far left Fabian Society was interrupted by British protesters making it clear Khan doesn't speak for them and they welcome a state visit to the UK from Trump. Also, 74% of Brits in a recent poll favoured a state visit for Trump:
  11. Theresa May and Sadiq Khan welcome back returning ISIS fighters with open arms to walk the streets. But Trump is not welcome. What does that tell you? Strange ass backward set of priorities.
