If he's using Thai coins, then he is lucky not to be arrested for deliberately destroying the image on the coin. He's not that stupid - he used foreign coins. The reaction that it's dangerous is rather ridiculous.. though if you search you'll find that in America there are kids aged about 8 or 9 doing this (equivalent to Thai age 18 to 29 perhaps).

 

I heard a story about someone who reacted, when a 500 baht note blew away, by chasing it down and stamping on it to stop it blowing any further. They got into a whole load of trouble for putting their foot on the head...

I have heard that story so many times but at least you didn't claim it was you.

Two guys in detention who were trying to enter Thailand?

 

  Please do not watch this guy's videos, it only makes him richer.

 

     I don't understand why they don't deport him, he did make Thailand look very bad.

 

   An ex- Mormon now spreading humor? Insane.

Remember.

This is the guy who made a video mocking Thai people's English language skills (like asking some Thai guys if they were on their "period" now).

 

This is the guy who was also in hot water not long ago for making a video where he had a cat fighting a scorpion (which he thought was just great). Seems he has been summoned to appear at a police station this week regarding that.

 

Lol - apparently he already deleted the coin video from his (youtube) account - probably clued in as to what the possible punishment could be for defacing an image of the king.

Enough evidence to live in a detention cell for me. Sorry, the "Thais so bad in English" was more than inappropriate.

Sad that TV gives him even more attention. Why Thailand don't deport him? Good guys in bad guys out. No?

Where is Thai Immigration? Why hasn't this guy been deported? As an American I'm embarrassed by this idiot! Deport him! Good Folks In, these Idiots Out!

I used to do this as a kid in the USA

He earns income off his Youtube channel. Bet he doesn't have a work permit.

"The Darwin Awards are a tongue-in-cheek honor, originating in Usenet newsgroup discussions around 1985. They recognize individuals who have supposedly contributed to human evolution by selecting themselves out of the gene pool via death or sterilization by their own actions." wiki

 Thus no award for Master Nate.     Perhaps if he lay on the railway tracks allowing trains to roll over him and tried to slip out between axles and was killed, then he would be eligible. Until then he's just the human equivalent of a house fly. Someone please swat him.

I don't understand what all the fuss is about. When I was young it was a favourite passtime to flatten coins under passing streetcars.

Since Thai trains never, ever exceed the perilous speed of 40 kilometer per hour,  I don''t see much risk involved....
