Re: Astronomy, cosmology and space thread

How are astrologers going to deal with all those planets? "Hi, what sign are you?" "I'm number 11,271, sorry, I don't have a name for it but I'm sure it has a great influence on me."

The copout will be only the planets in our solar system can be used.

Re: List of jobs reserved for Thais trimmed

That's good as I have an advanced degree in mattress making.

Re: Big C, Pre Cooked Chickens

You can refreeze fish but it doesn't taste as good when after you've cooked it.

Re: Big C, Pre Cooked Chickens

At Lotus, Makro & Villa the cooked food is wrapped or behind glass.
Moo Wanna, (wanna moo?) the pork is thrown into bins and people dig through it with plastic gloves but I have seen some bare hands. Then there's the flies hovering for their share. I only went once.

Re: Trouble sleeping after Japanese food

Last night was Japanese night this week and the problem was not the tofu as I had none, but used soy sauce. Little if any sleep, disgusted and up after 3 hours. Noticed some minor lip swelling last night. Perhaps not the first time but never noticed it before and was alert to it because of one of t...

Re: Europe travel

It would take 2 weeks to just do those two cities! Two of my favourites. Use Eurotunnel for travel between the two. To avoid lots of travel, as you say, go somewhere else nearby. Perhaps north to somewhere like Amsterdam, or somewhere in Switzerland. Or head North from London to Edinburgh. Another ...

Re: First execution for 9 years in Thailand

I think that some of you have lived in 'Thailand too long and like many Thais, no longer value human life or maybe you never did, more's the pity.

Re: First execution for 9 years in Thailand

If as little dictators claim, execution would "serve as a deterrent" then there would be little to no crime. It's an old debunked argument used years ago in the U.S. to justify executions, which, in essence, are revenge.

Re: Minivan, bus and road accidents

Nearly all bus/minivan accidents state the same cause; a car/truck turned in front of me. The drivers need a new script.

Re: What is your Passion in Life?

62 yrs. as a musician fulfilled my main passion as did going to China. Now I'm 79 and would still like to be playing music but that's not an option here. At least for what I'd like to play. So, in my case, living here has thwarted my passion. Marriage, children, money, relationships & other jobs nev...

Re: Hua Hin Condo owners fined for short term rentals

I use Booking.com and pay when I arrive. That way there's no problem.
