Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

Praphun Khomjoi, Chiang Rai's Buddhist office chief, said that the Wild Boars will have their heads shaved on Tuesday and attend a robe ceremony the next day. They will then stay in different monasteries until leaving and again returning home on Aug 4. A reward or punishment? Not sure if you mean e...

Wanna bet?

I have no way to know whether the boys would want to accept that invitation. Neither do you.

Sure! I don't believe a Caribbean trip will happen. Another small bottle of Glenfiddich is on the line.

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

He spoke about the farmers who willingly allowed their crops to be destroyed so that the water could be drained down into their fields. I'm sorry I missed it and hope they show it again. Re those farmers, they refused the compensation offered by the government for the flooding of their land. It was...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

Does anyone think these boys and their families want a vacation in the Caribbean? Why not? If someone offered me an all expense paid vacation there, I'd jump at the chance and I wouldn't care whether it's an attempt to cash in or not. I would join you. But you can't seriously believe a group of Tha...

Now that sounds like a blatant attempt to cash in. Does anyone think these boys and their families want a vacation in the Caribbean? Do they even have recognised soccer teams? Nonsense!

Re: Elon Musk Calls Cave Rescue Diver Pedophile

Another good reason for that diver to sue. Musk has just settled out of court for using without permission a farting unicorn motif - no, that's not a misprint - a farting unicorn which another guy had drawn as a tribute to electric vehicles. A potter, Tom Edwards, had used the motif on one of his mu...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

The present media interest will die down as the boys get back to school and start to lead normal lives. I have no idea when those tournaments in Europe are but the boys will probably have no free time till Spring next year. There will be bound to be a bit of media interest whenever they travel, but ...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

And that is exactly what they don’t need. I agree - but also totally disagree! For the time being, the boys should be left alone. They have to get back to being normal kids again and will have a lot of schoolwork to catch up on, On the other hand, they are all mad keen soccer players. Several want ...

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: Elon Musk Calls Cave Rescue Diver Pedophile

there was also his waterproof tunnel idea. I haven't heard anyone say that couldn't have worked. I suspect because they just laughed it off. From what we know about the tunnel, there were sections where the ground was quite jagged and other parts where there was precious little height. We also know...
