Re: More idiots

For visiting tourists, a fine of only Bt.5,000 is to my mind ridiculous. I can understand that the law was probably enacted to prevent Thais from defacing their own country. But tourists should be fined at least Bt.30,000 if it is to be any deterrent to future idiots.

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

Today's Observer in the UK has a scathing Editorial on Trump. Day after tumultuous day since 20 January 2017, Trump has provided fresh evidence of his unfitness for America’s highest office. It is not only that his politics and policies, from tax cuts and climate change to Palestine and nuclear weap...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

I wonder how many times Trump has actually stated something categorically only later to issue a total denial. It is mindblowingy obvious the guy has a pea brain for I seem to recall it is now well over 1,000, if not pretty close to 2,000. It reminds me of the joke told by some wit about Bush 43 whic...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

So the Dump wants to encourage Norwegians to live in the USA. I wonder why any would even dream of it, given that the average income of Norwegians as a percentage of GDP is a great deal higher than their poorer cousins in the USA. Another international fact of which the increasingly isolated leader ...

Re: Which is the Best Dating App in Bangkok?

Blued seems automatically to give you profiles of guys near you. But there must be some way I have not yet worked out of seeing guys further away. I have been contacted by quite a few guys from several 100 kms away, one of whom is coming to Bangkok this weekend and we plan to meet. Mercifully there ...

Which is the Best Dating App in Bangkok?

I tend to be a bit late in keeping up with trends. For years I have used Gay Romeo and it took some time before I downloaded Grindr, Jack'd and Hornet. It was even more recently that I added Blued, believing that it was primarily for guys living in China. Checking in Bangkok today, it seems clear th...

Re: smog in pattaya

Meantime in Bangkok we had a massive thunderstorm storm early this morning which seemed to last the better part of an hour. As I write it is still raining and is grey and miserable outside. What is wrong with the weather? In 17 years I have never known such an unpredictable 'winter' season.

Re: Bangkok report January 2018

Some of you may remember him (fountainhall, perhaps?). We recognised each other immediately, despite many years since Solid closed. I was certainly a regular and so am certain I must have met him. But without a photo I simply cannot put a face/body to the name. But then I was always more into the t...

Re: Astronomy facts from 2017

Just reading these posts has my head in a spin! If the universe was created from nothing, how can there be a God? Where was God at that point? Were there other universes out there at that moment? I say that as one who does kind of believe in some form of Superior Being/Authority/Knowledge - call it ...
