  1. Fortunately, the average Thai man is not lying on a Jomtien beach guzzling cheap beer and worrying about the cost of his next bargirl's attentions and neither are you, I'm sure. But keep it up..

  3. The RTP are getting high quality weapons. Will the weapons get high quality users?
  4. It's nothing to do with what you expect to receive as a reward when you've done some good deed like this lady did. It is the fact that the doctor had no sense of decency, no real awareness that a woman making a small monthly wage had the honesty to return over a million baht. It is the doctor who should look in the mirror and be ashamed for not giving her a very decent reward and a big thank you. Shame on him, the doctor, who no doubt will remain nameless and kudos to the bus conductress who showed what true honesty is all about in LOS.
  5. I think this could turn into a TV series, after all, the soldiers are all handsome and the ladies might appreciate that. Perhaps they could call it "The Army Game". You'd have to be at least 70 to remember that one. But of course that was 60 years ago and the UK had been out of the war for 10 years. I'm not sure how long the Thai military has been out of their war.
  6. "Why is the drunk cop not behind bars?" Quite simply because he prefers to spend his time in bars getting drunk.
  7. Nelson Mandela was a man who fought the apartheid system in South Africa and though his ANC were responsible for many deaths, he was not technically a murderer. His lengthy and harsh prison term gave him the stature to go on to be the leader of his country ost apartheid.. etc etc. ( ".. to the prison on Robben Island, remaining there for the next 18 years........Mandela was imprisoned in a damp concrete cell measuring 8 feet (2.4 m) by 7 feet (2.1 m), with a straw mat on which to sleep.[146] Verbally and physically harassed by several white prison wardens, the Rivonia Trial prisoners spent their days breaking rocks into gravel, until being reassigned in January 1965 to work in a lime quarry. ) wiki. I have no problem with treating prisoners in a humane and decent way, but it is hard to feel for their circumstances in prison after reading some of the horrific crimes some of them have committed. We read recently about the beast that raped the young girl and those others who raped and murdered old women. I am afraid their creature comforts in jail are of no concern to me. I am more concerned with how the government takes care of their victims. Then of course, there are the unrepentant, arrogant, killers who have mowed down innocents while driving their cars in a dangerous manner while under the influence of a drug, these creatures don't even get to see a jail cell half the time...
  8. I wonder if Worapol, the farmer, still has the buffalo bill he wrote out to the merchant after discovering his kwai was mai sabai ?.
  9. I feel sorry for the guy and hope he can recover from this desperate act. Perhaps it was the depressing thought of having to leave fun Thailand and go back to the " good life" in Australia.
  10. '....this terrible photo of Yingluck. " What do you mean? She is brimming with emotion, holding back a flood of tears in front of a large crowd of her adoring fans. What you need is this one to keep your pulse racing. She was a mere 25 year old and quite a stunner. : Here are more for your enjoyment. https://www.google.co.th/search?q=yingluck&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiczs7Bmp_VAhVGgLwKHYaVDP4Q_AUICigB&biw=1366&bih=589 Sweet dreams...................................
  11. There, you explained what I meant.
  12. "...the chicken coup!" Is that what happened in 2014?
  13. An important case for many people in Thailand, and a few observers in foreign countries with an interest in Thai politics. The rest of the world has far bigger problems than worrying about the fate of the sister of a corrupt (among so many) Thai politician. The military government has not spent the last 3 years in power in order for Ms Yingluck to leave court victorious and ready to try and run the country for a second time (which as has already been pointed out, is not possible). They will, IMO, at best give her a big fine, a good "judicial spanking" and tell her to go and grow her mushrooms, look after her son and be a good girl. Meanwhile big brother who has been watching from the safety of the desert sheikdom must be envious of the intestinal fortitude of his youngest sister during these last few years. A characteristic he sadly lacks.
