Re: Local schools recommendation

Haha, no such thing as good high schools here...all are brainwashing machines that teach them nothing other than the perpetuating garbage that they need the next generation to believe. Forget it. In other words....not so different from schools in most countries.... :duck: Wrong. Obviously you have ...

Re: City Hall joins flap over pigeon-feeding

I guess that they need to do away with/fine the local feed sellers really. As for the Chinese tourists that keep wanting a selfie amongst a few hundred flying rats to show everyone back home how wonderful their holiday was...is a mystery to me.

Re: Government to help ease teachers' debt problem

This is a crazy situation for many reasons and to be frank the teachers are just useless and entitled. Firstly, why are they exempt from credit checks? That's nuts! Secondly, why do they think that they are somehow special and should get a prime position to trough? What part of 'If you borrow money ...

Most people that use Twitter a lot need to submit themselves for a psychological evaluation imo.

Re: Aspirin

Aspirin has lots of benefits and is becoming a no brainer for many things. However, I would say a baby aspirin (81mg) once every two days is a good idea as a preventative action having read up on it (not a doc though, just what I read), unless professionally told to use differently.

Re: What is your Passion in Life?

I'm passionate about travel, women, beer and idling around with little to do. However, having a job and a wife mostly gets in the way of those.

Re: 49 missing as boat overturns in seas off Thailand

This story seems to have been buried in the news sites sadly....whilst the saving of 13 negligent Thais who wandered into caves that should have been off limits at this time of year is way more important. Channel 3 stuff....40+ Chinese died due to Thai stupidity and it's not so important. They even ...

Re: Massive exodus from Bangkok - 7 deadly days of Songkran begin

This "7 Deadly Days" thing is a myth. According to the yearly road death figures, then actually it's safer to drive around during these major holiday times than it is to do so normally by about 5-10% due to the police actually being forced into doing their job more actively than usual due to politics.

Re: Living in Phuket ?

All the tourist places is where you should all be at as you would find the rest of Thailand too challenging to deal with. Those that suggested the beach holiday resorts are spot-on for you guys. Have fun there and 07.

Re: Australian man dead after brutal bar attack in Pattaya

Pattaya is a magnet for the foreign and Thai trash...plus unsuspecting tourists from both sides too. Strong the douche can be in Pattaya. Not confined to there, but often is more concentrated in such places.

Re: Embassy frets over plight of UK inmates in Thailand

How about telling UK nationals that they shouldn't break laws in foreign countries and expect some sort of special treatment as they [foreign countries] are much more unforgiving than the luvvies that run the UK justice system? You are not special and if you do the crime then be prepared to do the t...
