Re: Children dieing in Thailand on teh Roads

I'm always disgusted with teachers at schools allowing under age children to ride out the gate with no helmets, that would be the place to start... They seem to care enough to force the kids to wear the correct uniform (of many) and to get their hair cut just right, and to address everyone using th...

Re: New member for our Royal Family

Any joke, slight or jocular reference to the kid being ginger would never be met with such radical and swift repercussions. It seems to me you simply can't make a joke about certain races. They can't handle it -- they've redefined "inappropriate speech" and demand others follow their strict dictate....

New car red plates and associated games

Thailand's temporary license plate system is bizarre. I am convinced the reason Thailand uses this system is to collect fines from offenders of the arcane and hilarious rules, rather than customer convenience, as dealers claim, which has nothing to do with it. When you buy a new car, you're sometime...

The real horror is that anyone still buys into such anachronistic nonsense.

Re: Power cuts coming to Udon ?

In a few weeks, the perennial issue of power cuts will yield to chronic and everlasting issues of flood prevention, followed soon thereafter by dire warnings of severe drought and heat -- and power cuts. Can pestilence, famine and war be far off? https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/...

Re: Thai Respiratory Diseases

Liver flukes are parasitic worms that live in the bile ducts and the liver of infected animals. These parasites cause a disease called fascioliasis in people, cattle, and sheep. Although liver flukes can infect people in all parts of the world, they are most prevalent in developing countries. http:...

Re: China's destructive exploitation of Africa

Afro-Chinese -- somehow, I doubt this idea will have legs. Africa (it's a continent, not a country) in the Chinese view, is a land to be exploited, not colonized. A little like Australia.

Re: biodiversiity crisis ..we're all doomed i tell ya

Earth formed about 4.5 billion years ago. First life appeared about half a billion years ago. Ninety-nine point nine (99.9) percent of every living species that ever existed on this planet has become extinct. Humans aren't as special as many like to think. There are an estimated 6- to 10-million spe...

Re: China's destructive exploitation of Africa

Fewer than 350,000 enslaved people were imported from Africa into the American Colonies. The British slave trade took the vast majority of slaves to South America and the Caribbean. The "Scramble for Africa" was the occupation, division, and colonisation of African territory by Western European powe...

Re: Power cuts coming to Udon ?

so that you can run your house safely on generator power. Some of us don't want to run the entire house on generator power. The electric will be back on in a few hours. Maybe a day in the worst case. Why over-engineer a temporary and relatively (in most cases) infrequent problem? Anyone running a g...
