Re: Yet Another Immigration Question

With all the questions being asked, along with uncertainty and confusion, my suggestion is to go to immigration a couple weeks or more before it's time to renew the visa and ask them. Personally, I'd be a lot more confident in what immigration tells me than I would on what I read on a message board....

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

I have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand I don't like the fact they are being exploited. On the other hand they are getting opportunities they never could have dreamed about, including Thai citizenship for the boys who were essentially stateless. I don't see anything negative about those oppo...

Re: Beware if you have a Red Lic. Plate

the current wait for a white plate is approx. 90 days. 90 DAYS?!?!? I wonder why it takes so long. There must be one hell of a backlog if it takes that long. What do they expect people to do in the meantime? I expected them to pay the fine-this they did. And you can't drive out of your home provinc...

Re: Beware if you have a Red Lic. Plate

Initially I was going to say that this is a load of rubbish. In my opinion, what goes on with the red plates is a load of rubbish. I can't make sense out of the logic (or lack thereof) of it. If it is illegal to drive a car with the red plates, what do they expect people to do, buy a car or motorbi...

Re: Beware if you have a Red Lic. Plate

The whole red plate system is a big scandalous mess. It's long been a way to avoid paying excise tax on expensive cars, and often to cover vehicle theft. Many of the red plates you see are counterfeit anyway. I think that may depend on the source of the plate. When I bought my car, the Toyota deale...

Not even any form of ID? Why? If the police ever ask for ID, I think they're going to regret that decision. If there is a valid, logical reason not to carry any ID at all, I'd like to know what it is.

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

I had a very difficult time watching the Stahl-Trump interview and listening to Trump's utter shit without vomiting. I thought now, as a break, I would post about someone quadrillions of times more palatable, and quadrillions of times more qualified, than Trump can ever hope to be: http://www.youtub...
