    Wow, no bars at all?! I think the first time I went to Soi 33 was in 1992, when I started living in LOS, and I became quite a regular. I think there were 5 or 6 bars back then (Renoir, Vincent Van Gogh, Degas, Monet and a couple of others) although we mainly frequented Renoir. Over the years a few more opened on the main soi and sub sois and then it sort of took off and a map of the soi dated March 2010 shows about 40 bars, including many Japanese ones, and about 15 massage joints. So to go from 40 to 0 in 10 years would be a massive collapse!

    Gigi when asked where North Korea might be as well as where the Iran is did not know exactly but felt well because Donald defends them anyway. Although the Donald called brother Kim his " Friend" last week . And what are " these problems " that Gigi has with North Korea ? Permanent farting after a bad batch of ginseng ? Khun Cavanami , the world is laughing about the Trump gang . Not that I am happy about it , I still believe in the US and it´s values . It is sadness that befalls me . Honestly.

    How about changing the name of the Board to USA Thread.com? With at least 95% of all board activity in the USA Thread forum this is clearly the topic of most interest to members and the name change might attract a few more?! 😲 😉

    This is going to sound petty, but countries that have been targeted by similar type of terrorists attacks give each other intel if it may affect their country. Its the norm. Russia would do it for us and we for them despite ideological and other differences. Some things are above that. Had it been Obama, Putin would not have made a public thanks. He may convey it privately but it wouldn't have been something out of the ordinary. So, Putin has done that publicly for ulterior motives for doing so. I know how it sounds to point that out but we are talking Putin here. Things like that are private. I recall Obama on a hot mic he was not aware of telling Medvedev "This is my last election after it I will have more flexibility"

    I met a girl once who said that was one of her kinks. And not, I'm not going to admit to whether or not I obliged. I may run for President one day.

    The wife has US and Thai passports. She leaves, and enters, Thailand on the Thai one and same with the US one in the states only. The first time she did this it made her nervous and she mixed them up. The Thai immigration officer explained it to her. Now, 15 years later, never a problem.

    Hey Coss, remember when Trump insisted on speaking with Putin alone, no one else? I can't recall if his wife was with him or not but my guess is if his wife was there he wanted Putin to refute the piss tape story. Trump stands to lose a lot of his wife divorces him now. I'm sure she signed a pre nup but she has his son and the courts will award a huge amount for child support and his finances could be come out in court. He's not that rich. He's leveraged to the hilt and the banks you mentioned have him in his pocket. Don't think for one minute the Republican party hasn't thought about all this. They have and for now they are in power and have decided to choose (perceived power) over the country. This all seems so surreal. But as I said, this administration and the whole circus has exposed a lot of things. In the end, the far left will win. Why? The economy will crash under its whole weight and the GOP will be blamed as it was in 2008 and it will be so bad, they won't recover similar to the Great Depression. The Republicans owed the 1920s and the elite made all the money. The country had very poor regions still despite the supposed 'Roaring 20s'. The economy crashed and the Democrats had a 20 year run in the white house and pushed through the most progressive legislation ever up to that point and I am predicting something similar. If you look at America economically there really has only been one successful Republican stint in the White House the last 100 years and by successful I mean it didn't end in recession or a crash and that was Eistenhower. Hoover, a Republican ended in a crash. Nixon took over in '68 and Republicans were in the big house till 1976 and although the Vietnam war costs can be blamed for the economy in part as well as the oil embargo in '73, the President takes the credit or blame and by the end of Ford's stort stint, America had a stagnant economy. Reagan is lauded but his presidency ended with the biggest market drop in history percentage wise, the 1987 crash, 25% in one day and we ended up being a net debtor nation by the end of his term and a recession from those days under Bush. The younger Bush as we all know ended up in the Great Recession. We have not had success with Republicans in the White House despite their self aggrandizing about knowing economics better. I'm not saying the Dems are great either but if we are to judge both on results, the Dems fare much better. I say that as a person who worked in finance and studied financial history. As Ben Shapiro, the far right commentator likes to say 'The facts don't care about your feelings'. Eventually, conservatives may be judged by whether or not they supported Trump. Just like a notable Germans in the 30s and 40s are judged by their support of Hitler.

    The Guardian is down on Trump, but even they call it right: "In the Nixon case, impeachment never even got to a vote of the full House let alone a trial in the senate; a delegation of senior Republicans told Nixon the game was up, and he preferred to resign than be removed. It’s conceivable the Trump story will end the same way, and yet few expect it. The settled view in Washington – which has been wrong before – is that this will break on partisan lines: the Democratic-led House will vote to impeach Trump, but two-thirds of the Republican-dominated Senate will not be ready to convict him, as the rules demand, and he’ll be acquitted." The Democrats voted unanimously not to convict Clinton, and the Republicans will be close to that in not convicting Trump. Obviously, guilt or innocence doesn't really matter to our politicians. Only staying in power does. So what does that mean for the 2020 election? Your guess is as good as mine.

    I doubt it's all about gogo bars, seems to be more about the history of the place and a bit about the bars. For someone who first went there over 31 years ago and knowing how much it has changed in that time I'm sure it will be very interesting, at least to me and I've no doubt many others. 👍

    It got cold in Germany. The last four nights we had in large parts of our country -1 to -4 degrees in the night. In the low mountain ranges and in the Alps of course correspondingly colder. A high pressure area over Central Europe led to a cold spell. I had to turn on the heating for the first time in this autumn. To pass the time I watch some videos from warmer areas; e.g. Pattaya Walking Street, Beach Road. I'd like to be there now. and some more ....

    Is it right to atttack the LTC? Of course not, no more than was Hillary's calling Major Tulsi Gabbard ... a decorated combat veteran ... a "Russian asset". Politicians seem to make up their own rules these days, and it's time to judge them all by the same standards, regardless of party affiliation.

    I don't know about the constitutionality of it but I disagree with having to submit your tax return. Just like I'm sure you agree with states that were trying to force submission of birth certificates as a precursor to them invalidating Obama's. Lets be consistent about bullshit from all sides.

    Gentlemen, Thai immigration issues did not catch my immediate interest so far although a terrible thought crossed my mind this very hour: having checked into a mostly BKK based hotel I usually keep the room without checking out if heading upcountry for a day or 2. Consequently the Thai immigration control machinery has to deal with a falang physically available in 2 places simultaneously. I could now imagine that additional joss sticks would be set on fire immediately at the nearest shrine to calm potentially dangerous ghosts, but it is worth a thought to my opinion. In particular as the simultaneous appearance could be expanded to let´s say 5 places with utmost ease.

    In case you have some of that junk currency you want to get rid off, let me know. I always wonder under what circumstances some people live at home if they find Siam expensive. Ticket prices went down over the years anyway and a decent meal is available even BKK downtown at maybe 300 Bht and half of that countryside. Prices for ladies´ services and booze are said to have increased but try that lifestyle at home .

    Speed limits up will make no difference they are at 90kph now and traffic crawls along at an average much lower, raconteur to 120 will technically make the traffic slower since the delta between average and speed limit will be greater.

    Re: Kamala I watched a bit of her performance. And whilst I am not in a position to argue the truth or otherwise of Kamala's statements, I note this - when she teared up a bit, talking about her being a little girl... She waited, until there were the right amount of tears, in her eyes and then turned to camera and gave, right down the barrel of the lens, her best "I'm a victim the world is terrible what you gonna do about it" look, that any father who has had daughters, can recognise from a mile away. I know that politics is theatre, but this was so calculated as to have me disbelieve her, from now on in. cheers , Coss, who has never experienced racial segregation, when I went to school us white boys got caned right along with the Maori blokes.

    I was standing at the bar one night minding my own business. This FAT ugly chick came up behind me, grabbed my behind and said, "You're kinda cute. You gotta phone number?" I said, "Yeah. You got a pen?" She said, "Yeah, I got a pen." I said, "You better get back in it before the farmer misses you." Cost me 6 stitches, but.... When you’re over 70.............who cares? ********** I went to the drugstore and told the clerk, "Give me 3 packets of condoms, please." Lady Clerk: "Do you need a paper bag with that, sir?” I said, "Nah. She's purty good lookin'." When you’re over 70.............who cares? *********** I was talking to a young woman in a bar last night. She said, "If you lost a few pounds, had a shave and got your hair cut, you'd look all right.” I said, “If I did that, I'd be talking to your friends over there instead of you.” Cost me a fat lip, but.... When you’re over 70.............who cares? ********** I was telling a woman in the Club about my ability to guess what day a woman was born just by feeling her breasts. "Really?" she said. "Go on, then. Try." After about thirty seconds of fondling, she began to lose patience and said, "Come on. What day was I born?" I said, "Yesterday." Cost me a kick in the nuts, but.... When you’re over 70..............who cares? ********* I got caught taking a pee in the swimming pool today. The lifeguard shouted at me so loud, I nearly fell in. When you’re over 70.............who cares? ********** I went to a bar last night and saw a BIG woman dancing on a table. I said, "Good legs." The girl giggled and said, "Do you really think so?" I said, "Definitely! Most tables would have collapsed by now." When you’re over 70.............who cares?

    Coconuts needs to keep up with the news. Almost all of the stranded travellers left days ago. Thai began flying to Europe the next day, simply flying around Pakistan.

    It's not pretty but its politics. Obama was one of the most closely examined Presidents ever. The problem the Republicans had at the time was he was more than careful. He was a constitutional lawyer. The animosity in the government has pretty much stopped much work of value to be done. Blame whomever you wish but nothing of consequence gets done unless that party enjoys enough of a majority to get past dissenting votes. Not much with regards to bipartisan support as well. In some areas its crippling the function of the government.

    Bangkok is turning into a megacity of mostly condos. Virtually every apartment in those condos will be owned by someone who drives a car. There has been absolutely no planning as the city expands. It just spreads like a wild fire, destroying everything in its path. From the Bangkok Post: "Because Bangkok expanded without any land use or transportation planning, it grew without sufficient road space, particularly secondary roads. Whereas New York has a 32% road-to-area ratio and Tokyo has 23%, Bangkok has only 8%. The limited amount of road space means that traffic becomes even worse when flooding occurs, making some roads impassable." Add to that the constant construction of even more rail lines, which reduce the major streets to even fewer usuable lanes ...
