As long as it is so corrupt, the traffic deaths are so high, and the education system so poor it can never be first world standard. Putting people in jail for 35 years for social media comments does not help either, that's a virtual death sentence for having an opinion.

You forgot to add the stray dogs to your list.... though I must admit all the fancy shopping malls spread over the country are definitely first world.

the first world status could be determined by the countries police force.  thailand will have to wait 9 more months to become first world as the reform is not being carried out till then.

Another good article Rooster, Thanks.  In Thailand and China I have noticed First world country methods being used.

  One of them is the Traffic signals with count down timers to show the time for Green or Red lights. In Canada

the pedestrians have the small walk signs do the count down, and they are hard to see for the drivers and I feel

that Canada should advance a bit with the large count down signs for drivers as well. China has lots of electric carts

and other modern systems like solar water heaters on the roofs of their buildings, while Canada is just talking about

having the population try to go more green., Not hat I am calling Canada a third world countr, but sometimes I laugh

when I hear of somewhere else in the world, not being considered as modern as North Amrica or Europe.

Geezer

HRH has worked irelessly to promote good causes

I would hope that no anger would be involved in promoting good causes.  But perhaps the addition of a "t" would make better sense here.  Of course, expert scrabble players get more points for longer words anyhow--and they should be in the dictionary, unlike our unique entry here.
