Re: What do you do all day?

I only had 10 months of living there myself but for what it's worth I had a routine of gym, breakfast, beach, evening meal then either back to watch tv or go out to cinema, ten pin bowling, shopping, barhopping or whatever else I felt like doing. Did I get bored? It did cross my mind one day when i ...

Re: Gun control? Might as well forget it

These 3D printers seem to be the future in many ways. Already starting to build complete houses with 3D machines so in comparison making a gun must relatively be childs play.

Re: The Movie about the Cave Rescue

My own view, were I ever to be asked (!), is that music should play very little part in such a movie. In that cave it must have been as silent as a tomb with only the sound of silence and rushing water for the most part. I reckon natural sounds will convey what it must have felt like far better tha...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

Fill me in guys, I'm reading about the stateless boys - why are they stateless, aren't they all from Thailand? For decades there has traditionally been a lot of ethnic tension across the border in Myanmar between the hill tribes and the Burmese. In that part of Thailand the border is like a sieve a...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

Just when I thought it was difficult to find folk more cynical than myself some of you are doing a good job of proving me wrong. I don't believe any of the offers being made to the team had anything to do with money. Maybe I'm having a sentimental day, but I also believe the boys would not go anywhe...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

Forgive me for venting, and I know that this is totally missing the point, but I can't help but be appalled by how much misinformation we've been fed over the past weeks. Forgive me, I don't care. They got out, that'll do for me. Journalists will always exaggerate or latch onto rumours or whatever,...
