and there was a headline post on here recently saying, "why cant us farangs be like thais and enjoy ourselves more" i did comment on the rest of the year they are killing each other now it would seem they are doing it 365 days of the year lol !!

it's really easy to understand. there is a relation between enjoyment, freedom and violence, deaths.

 

try to get some good & cheap fun in the world's safest countries and report back...

This is what happens when a respectful Buddhist holiday gets turned into a money making week long piss up.

Perhaps all alcohol sales should be stopped for the Songkran holiday? Return it to a celebration rather than drunken mayhem.

lol.

this is a very ignorant statement. 99% of that violence occurs without any foreigner around.

Absolute garbage, don't you read the reports see the videos about the Farang scum in Pattaya, and you say it is only 1%.

and don't use the word ignorant when referring to me.

some ignorant Falang haters still do not know that pattaya is not the real thailand. the greedy locals have created this messy place.

the so called falang scum is very welcome there to spent their money.

I agree with what you are saying, but my understanding of the multiplier effect comes from economics, where it refers to a chain of events, so a factory closes down and not only does it result in the workers being unemployed, but also ancilliary workers, in turn the local shopkeeper, and then the paperboy. Hence it goes 1000- 400- 200-100, etc.

 

I guess you could say that witnessing scenes of violence in Bkk, or elsewhere, leads to some incidents in villages. That would be a sort of multiplier effect.

Good comeback but it goes well beyond monkey see monkey do. Catch you later I am  out of bananas.

Well, in case offence was taken, I was just explaining the multiplier effect as opposed to the 'copycat effect'.

 

I think I made the point very politely.  Personally, I am always happy to be informed like this.

Yes indeedee you did make it politely for which I thank you. If you have any spare time I think you should open a politeness class well maybe just a refresher course. Some here are in need. They are diamonds in the rough in need of a bit of polishing.

I do agree with you, the violence at Songkran is symptomatic of a deeper malaise in society imo. 

 

As regards TV forum, well I still like a good shin kick contest from time to time, but for many it is default mode:smile:

I like a good shin kick contest (must be the crusader gene in all of us) myself but some come on like a buzz saw especially the ones that try to sound intelligent by opening up with comments like "Hey stupid" Some of my fellow man may be stupid but it is not in my position to tell them let them figure it out. Well carry on.

After 11 years living here I dread Songkron more each year.

 

One has to wonder with all the deaths, injuries, and complains why they continue it each year.

Yes but you don't enter the Spirit of the idiotic water throwers. You must repeat after me. I am an old fuddy duddy. Bet you use to like Songkran.
