Re: The Chicken Bone Man

I've seen matlots in Plymouth trying to shock people by sifting through somebody's sick and eating the carrots, but this was totally different. That reminded me of a particular show of friendship when coming back after a run ashore in Guz. One matelot puked along with his denture. "I'm not putting ...

Re: MSG inThai food

I think the problem is the fact that msg as an additive is synthetic and carries all the problems relating to 'synthetic copies'. If it was in the form of a natural extract there wouldn't be a problem. It's found naturally in a large variety of foods. i.e. Ocean vegetables, especially kombu seaweed ...

Re: MSG inThai food

Well food additives in Oz have to be approved by the Food Authority. Don't know who did the tests. I was quite surprised that MSG appears naturally in some foods. Glutamic acid is naturally present in our bodies, and in many foods and food additives. MSG occurs naturally in many foods, such as tomat...

Re: The bikers thread; trips, news, chat, all things motorcycle

Trump wants American products to be made in America while encouraging foreign manufacturers to make their products in America. The guy's an idiot.

I don't think he'll Triumph on this one. It's a Matchless effort but a Bonnie idea!!

Re: Electrical installation advice.

I'm sure some time ago that a regulation was brought in requiring that all new builds had to have 3 wire (earth) installation. I remember one project that failed inspection because it was a 2 wire set-up and they had to rewire the whole project before they got certification. But this being Thailand,...

Re: MSG inThai food

I was curious about this so I 'googled' it. I can't find any reference of it being banned in the UK or Australia. In fact Australia has strict regulations about food additives until they are proved safe. MSG has been identified as being safe. All food additives must be shown on the packaging except ...

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

changes in consumer behaviour, not taxation, will reduce plastic waste. Unfortunately, that's not going to work in Thailand. It must be remembered that the teaching methods in Thailand do not help students to develop analytical thinking or in other words they don't have a mind of their own. They ha...

Re: Did you leave kids behind to come here?

I taught at a university in Petchaburi for a couple of years. I saw 21 and 22 year olds being treated as children. They were always fascinated listening to some my past life. Some of them, even at that age, had never even been to Bangkok. There have been incidents in the past where a student has won...

Re: Smoking ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches, jail time for offenders

Just read an article which came from a facebook page relating an interview with an official in Pattaya. He said the following: We can't fine people 100K or send them to jail for smoking on the beach, admits Pattaya official Those regulations are based on environmental laws, he said. The thesakit (lo...

Re: Did you leave kids behind to come here?

No, my daughter doesn't have her mother with her. Her UK family is dotted around the UK but none actually close by. She has made friends and runs a Thai restaurant in Putney. Everyone who knows her comments how mature and grown up she's become. She has been there 2 years now and is thoroughly enjoyi...

Re: Drug abuse in thailand (Arrests/News)

“Thailand is ranked 6th in the world when it comes to the number of inmates,” That's because other countries don't fill their jails with drug abusers. I agree there are a lot of arrests but the drugs recovered are a drop in the ocean. Did anyone notice in that vid that at one point the keystone cop...
