I fail to see the humor or the necessity of an insensitive post.

Re: It's not just Trump - Our World is Changing for the Worse

I believe the worst atrocities of all have been happening to the Royhingyas. Very little has been done to help them and few politicians and heads of state even mention the problem. It wouldn't surprise me if it turns out that Trump has never even heard of them. And it's a sure bet he would totally o...

Re: Baht at 30 month high against US dollar

far from the days of 35+ but every baht helps. Even farther from the days of 45 baht to the US dollar. I even remember just after the Asian economic crash it got to about 55 baht per US dollar. That lasted a little less than 2 weeks. My personal "Murphy's Law" dictated that it reached tha...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

Right now children have been placed in over 100 different facilities scattered throughout the USA and so far nobody is telling parents where their children are. In many cases the involved ...

Re: High Speed Airport Rail Link news

Thank you, fountainhall. Now that makes sense. I wonder just how high speed it will actually be - if they ever get around to actually building it. I also wonder where, in Pattaya, the stop will be and how often the trains will run. If they use the current railway station, it's inconveniently far out...

High Speed Airport Rail Link news

The article talks about eliminating Rayong as a stop on the Suvarnabhumi-U-Tapao Airports high speed rail link - the one that's been talked about for years, but nothing has gone beyond talk. What puzzles me is why the city of Rayong was in the proposal in the first place, but no mention of a stop in...
