  1. Which is one of the reasons that being a Good Samaritan isn't a good idea unless the country you are in and attempting to save a native's life has laws protecting you.

    Fastest WiFi Routers Available In Thailand?

    The router doesn't matter. It's the slow link in the global route that matters.
  3. Tame compared to a Patpong Ping Pong Show.

    Phuket hit as Chinese cancel room bookings

    Back to China to Thailand Zero Baht Tours to prime the pump. Considering TAT and the hotel industry have told farangs to they are unwanted, cant' depend on that demographic to fill to void.

    British cave diving hero finds love with Thai nurse

    Thanks <laughs> I'd probably need a work permit lest risk being deported and separated from my Thai family.
  7. Well, this thread has been some Jolly Good Fun - Pip Pip and all the rot. Talley Ho! Must take leave now and have a spot of tea. As an American, what I am proud about my own country's history was the spirit of Liberty and Individualism in which America was born. What bothers me now are the number of mindless followers who no longer think for themselves, have no understanding of history, and simply cleave to the pack. And I look at the survey results and think - "Really?" "Release the Hounds!" Best of luck. Lapdogs will always have their place in the grand scheme of things. No doubt Beth II will toss you some table scraps now and then. Classic Charles Lauhton
  8. Last time I checked, The United States of America was not a Commonwealth country beholding to the Queen of England. So your answer is: "No" That does not outrank him.
  9. I'll refer you to Thaivisa.com Forum Rules: "1) You will not express disrespect of the King of Thailand or any one member of the Thai royal family, whether living or deceased, nor to criticize the monarchy as an institution. By law, the Thai Royal Family are above politics. Speculation, comments and discussion of either a political or personal nature are not allowed when discussing HM The King or the Royal family. To breach these rules may result in immediate ban." Regarding Buddhism: This has nothing to do with the British Monarchs who to the best of my knowledges are probably Anglicans and not Buddhists. I am personally a Buddhist from the Theravada tradition. Buddhism has nothing to do with this post. It's irrelevant. Regarding the Thai anthem: I tend to sing along in Thai. They have an nice anthem. Beats the heck out of trying to sing the Star Spangled Banner. <laughs> I also like The Canadian Anthem too and sing along at hockey games. Regarding the English anthem, what goes through me head when I hear it is: My country, 'tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty, Of thee I sing; Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrims' pride, From ev'ry mountainside Let freedom ring! Samuel Francis Smith was my type of hero. What a fantastic sense of humor.
  10. If Mr. Musk is still in Thailand , file defamation charges, revoke his passport, and let the chip fall as they may. Stop!!! He's a Billionaire. Nevermind!
  11. In the last 50 years, how many times have a group of people been trapped in a cave by a flash flood? Now, how much money does the government want to pour into developing a 'sustainable' plan to keep that from happening again. And who will be the recipients of said monies. Wait a minute. Don't answer!!! I got it -- This Is Thailand. <cue huge Sucking Sound and Richard Mille watches appearing on many wrists (from dead friends of course)>
  12. Psychiatrists now need to get their 15 minutes of fame too.
  13. Billionaires - they breath ratified air. They consort with the Gods. Cave divers? That probably sounds like cavemen to such a lofty bird as the man who builds self-combustible self-driving cars. Nice things about Billionaires. Ain't many of them so their easy to ignore.

    Removing an old spirit house

    You can see old 'spirit house junk yards' along road throughout Thailand. You pick it up and dump it with the others. They won't mind, they are all with their friends. By the way, this is Animism. If you are an Animist, well, consult your local Animist and ancestor-worshipping puuyai. If you're Buddhist, it has nothing to do with Buddhism.
