  1. Nor the 'energy drink' manufacturers, well, until they had time to retool. The first ship to sail the Kratom Energy Drink product will have the market share.
  2. That was the quality I was expecting. What's the dash cam?
  3. Nope. That was the first thing I checked. Removed the film on the display and the lens. I wish that was it.
  4. Here's a screenshot the the video I took this afternoon. I'd pixilate the license number, but I don't have to because it is unreadable. The truck is no more than 1 1/2 car lengths in from of me. Can't read the license or the writing on the back of the truck. This is suppose to be 1080dpi High Definition? This is what this Dengo product is advertised as providing. So my next question would be, is there no regulatory agency within Thailand the will hold retailers accountable for blatantly false claims? Honest question here. Or is it simply 'caveat emptor', buyer beware. I've told the wife to send it back but I'm not holding my breath on a better replacement or a refund. Let's just go with buyer beware. My recommendation to anyone planning to buy a car camera. Don't do it without being able to first physically check out the dash cam, the video quality, and the display quality. Which means I'd personally avoid buying one online. Buy one from a shop, and take the time to know what you're getting. Which is what I'll be doing when I buy another to replace this.....<expletive> grrrrr. And I obviously can't recommend Dengo.
  5. “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” - George Orwell, 1984 Unlike many in the politically correct world, I don't particularly wish to head down the path of totalitarian dystopias. It's interesting that so many others do. So purge the statues, purge the pictures, purge the street names, and purge the building names -- and purge the books. Next will be the rewriting of history, that you my friends will probably never notice, as that revisionist history will be aimed directly at your children, the upcoming generation, who will inculcate any historical perspective that their teachers provide them. Then one day, you may find, there is something evil about you personally - history dictates that it is so. Therefore, it must be true. No, I don't want to live in a world like that, and hopefully I'll be gone by the time New-history has redefined society - but will you my friends? Will you?
  6. That's right up there in the 'hype' range with the 'blood moon' here in Thailand a few years back. I thought the Thais with me were going to start bowing down and praying to it like a scene out of Apocalypto. I've seen eclipses of the moon and sun as a kid. After the first time, they're just sort of mildly novel. The first eclipses is like a 'first kiss.' Anything after that is like your aunt giving you a peck on the cheek. Neither of those will make you go blind, although my mom tried to convince me that other eclipsial events in my life would. "But Mom! It was awesome! It was like seeing my first eclipse!" You'll go blind!
  7. Obviously no one surfs in Thailand. Any waves capable of being surfed would be deemed too dangerous.
  8. Sorry, you picked a real winner. Hire a PI.
  9. Actually, the world doesn't need heros. It needs more people who are will to get off there dead butts and assist those who are in peril.
  10. There was the same noise about trying to invoke the 25th Amendment with Obama. I really don't care what a person's political views are: right, left, center, or something else. But going down this path to attempt to remove sitting presidents is a very slippery slope that can not bode well for the future. Once that genie is out of the bottle, it will end up being like playing the 'coup card' here in Thailand. I'd personally rather not see the American Republic degenerate into a third-world political morass -- but there sure seem to be a whole lot of people who want to go there. As the old saying goes, "Be careful what you wish for."
  11. No doubt the anti-free speech side will be screaming hate-filled epitates at the pro-free speech side. Possibly along with pepper spray, mace, bicycle locks and rocks. Yep. Orwell was smack on the mark with the double-speak prediction.
  12. Cigarettes Ok. e-cigarette a crime. I'm confused.
  13. However, driving your (Beamer, Porsche, Mercedes, Hi-Lux, etc) at high-speed while weaving in and out of traffic across all lanes including the shoulders? Fine. No need to send the BIB the dash cam video. It's not a problem. And driving your car/truck/van on the sidewalk and parking it between 3 pm to 6 pm. Recommended. It keeps those pesky motorcyclists from driving there!
  14. No CD Player.

    When did the stop putting heater in cars?
