Re: If you have a heart problem, always check medication

Yes - il caveat emptor. I wandered into a clinic in Phetkasem rd and was given what i thought was an equivalent replacement for my high blood pressure pills which I found out a year later were diuretics and were not all that suitable for my condition.

Re: Photo trip report: A month in Myanmar

Great pics and a nice travelogue. My last trip was 40 years ago and I loved Pagan and the people were great.
Personally would love to see the Buddhist site in Rakhine state before the Rohingas destroy the "heathen" images.

Who is going to bank roll the 10 k for each attempted and convicted briber to the god fearing MIB who arrests them?

Yes they do Mr P according to my wife. They refer to them as being impolite and as for the current defacto PM - he is probably correct ha, ha. Haven't you heard the expression wouldn't go near them with a 40 foot pole (sorry to offended poles).

Bloody climate change!!!! Earth's magnetic field, which protects the planet from huge blasts of deadly solar radiation, has been weakening over the past six months, according to data collected by a European Space Agency (ESA) satellite array called Swarm. The biggest weak spots in the magnetic field...

Yes if you read between the lines it is yet another franchise, probably being squeezed to the limit financially and in premises without proper amenities!

Re: Global Warming 2

The Chinese do produce huge numbers of PV cells albeit not the most efficient. Maybe that's why they are looking are expanding their territories recently as there is not enough space to put all the cells out and align them correctly.

Re: Global Warming 2

Latest out of the US. Louisiana state Rep. Lenar Whitney (R) is accusing liberals, such as former Vice President Al Gore, of advancing "the greatest deception in the history of mankind" -- man-made climate change -- in a scheme to empower the executive branch and increase taxes. “A specter is haunti...

Re: Thai lady murdered in Hin Lek Fai

Nowadays in Oz some courtroom sketches are pixellated as are the arrested suspects. The age of PC is well and truly on us and who gives a damn about the victims??
No doubt in the future police will be looking for "someone"

Re: Experts' anger over 'invisible' rabies death toll.

And you are worried about rabies!!!! Species on Earth are going extinct at least 1,000 times faster than they would be without human influence, new research finds. But there's still time to save the world from this biodiversity disaster. Between 100 and 1,000 species per million go extinct every yea...

Re: Global Warming 2

Strange how any one who has an opposing opinion is castigated. I read an article this week which indicated that a female tv presenter (slender/blond/yank) berated anyone who disagreed with "climate change" being due to human involvement while on air. I suppose that's one way of winning an argument b...
