Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

If you consider what kind of very dangerous panic reaction any of those young children might experience if not sedated, being totally enclosed in some kind of wrapper, with a breathing mask, and also knowing he is under water, sometimes in a tiny mousehole of space and below ground, I don't think th...

Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

The Musk monkey really came unstuck. Calling someone a paedophile, and going on to say that all expats living in Thailand are sus (suspicious), in other words probably paedophiles.

He only cares about publicity, good or bad. What a....

Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

I think it's already been said somewhere that a lawyer has been appointed for them and they should get Thai status within a few months. .....and a General said today .."Only if it's within the law...." No slack from that guy it appears. Not to worry, Thaksin can get them a passport from somewhere. ...

Re: Suggest Something

How about a Limerick thread. One person writes the first line (e.g. There was a young man from Hua Hin), another poster writes the next line, and so on. The person to write the final line (and it's shown in full) gets to write the starter for the next limerick. Once the next line has been written i...

Sandpooper - what toilet paper feels like after you've eaten too many bird's eye chilis.

Example: "Couldn't face the sandpooper this morning, bum gun only".

uTorrent has stopped downloading anything for me - any ideas please?
Working fine this morning, even tested without a VPN. Did you check again this morning? Facebook was glitching last night, maybe there was some internet trouble.

Better to make your own. Take 2 meters of strong rope, tie one end around 4 or 5 concrete breeze blocks, tie the other end securely around your neck and jump in the pool. When the air bubbles stop rising to the surface the water will be clean. :cheers:

Re: Certified Translations

A Srirada certified translation was good enough for Immigration when I presented one earlier this year.

There is a lawyer in the parade of shops in Makro car park on Petchkasem Road that has a notary public attend on some days, price seems reasonable (I can't recall how much though, maybe THB 500?).

Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

It's an amazing rescue by the expert team of foreign divers who organised the evacuation of the boys. It's such a pity that the Thai press do not acknowlege those divers. The passive tense (in most of the reports), which I teach it to my students, is normally used when you don't know, or don't care...
