I think the only SUVs based on s truck with the lousy suspension are the big ones like Fortuner and similar.

Re: Sportsmanship.

It's called BIG money. Even in amateur sports, huge amounts of money are given to winners. Just not as "salary" rather sponsorships for events. Clothing, housing, etc.

It all started when professionals were allowed in the Olympics.

Re: nonstick cooking spray

I got my wife off the frying in oil kick by purchasing a hot air fryer.

Re: Which car would you feel safest in Thailand

Any of the truck based are going to have poor handling characteristics due to Thailand's insistence on leaf spring suspensions.

Re: Niece in UK wants to be expat - finding work in Thailand

My view on Muslim countries is no. While in the Air Force I was told I needed to go to Saudi, a backer of the Nazis and sworn enemy of Israel. I asked my CO to reconsider his order based on the following: 1. I'm a certified expert maxman with several weapons. 2. They are going to send me there with ...

Niece in UK wants to be expat - finding work in Thailand

Hi Folks, My niece from the UK is interested in finding work someplace more fun and less expensive than the UK/EU/US. She doesn't know the first thing about finding work overseas or work permits and such. She has not specified a location just an interest. Her skills are a mix of administrative type ...
