  1. For instance how many here know what the phrase stoat-the-baw means? I'll give you a hint, I've never stepped foot in Scotland, but I read a lot of Scottish fiction. What about Scientia est Potestas? The recalcitrant point I'm making is that by reading, you can transcend age. Yes I'm a young bugger, and as I said I'm honoured to be here and I'm lucky to hear your advise, your sarcasm, your rants etc...
  2. That's the perfect word Coss 'recalcitrant'. Although self-willed would be a nicer way to put it. However recalcitrant we are, we still have our code of ethics, which must include not behaving like a criminal. Not paying a 200 baht debt is the opposite of this, and we are unanimous in our condemnation of it. It gives us all a bad name, particularly Americans; but Farang in general. Welching on 200 baht and punching the staff in the face isn't recalcitrance, it's criminal behavior. If he doesn't get his comeuppance this time than be assured it's waiting around the corner.
  3. You're forgetting some people read. This is demonstrated clearly here by the use of a barely known word - Flid. I'm honoured to be a member of this board because there are some highly intelligent people here, just a few to name, Flashy, Mekong, Radioman, et al. Each I respect in a very much different way. I know, even though my first post was as far back a 2005, it's been guided this life by all these weird and wonderful things by these mentors such as they are. They're not perfect, nor am I - it's sounds twee that's understandable. I met an Angel down in Queens, she had a broken wing.

    Just Arrived

    Good welcome to all, we need some infusion of fresh blood. I would highly advise not listening or reading the lowland scots that munchmaster seems to extol. Note, most scholars don't accept as a language, more a culture. Irn-bru and a munchie box anyone? Maybe he's just lonesome for a ship like me. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
  5. He is extremely lucky that other westerner intervened. It just shows the arrogance of this guy - 200 baht!!! Just pay it and move on. Look I know not all Americans are like this, they are usually very generous people, but this guy is giving Americans a very bad name. Jesus Christ!!! Welching on a debt of 200 frigging baht! And then criminally assaulting a staff member. I hope he rots in jail. It will give him a new perspective on life. And he should thank the westerner you stepped in to protect his stupid arse.

    German Quality Tourist Gives Everything But Creates Boredom

    I travel light these days, just a small carry on backpack. I tell the taxi to stop on the corner of Soi 1. I then walk across the road and check into the JW Marriott. It's not about saving a taxi fare, I don't see why I need to go through the Bumrungrad Hospital, turn right onto Soi 4, wait forever at a traffic light, then finally get to my destination 15 minutes later in order to have saved approximately 10m of walking distance. I always tip the cab driver generously, because the prices are ludicrously low. Also talking to taxi drivers is great practice. I learnt a hell of a lot of brilliant banter from these guys speaking Isaan. You can get a huge discount for instance if you ask the elderly Thai lady at reception if she would be available for a date - if she's outraged, which never happens, you just say you would like to have such a lovely lady take you her favourite temple so you can pray for you lost mother. 50% off guaranteed. And often a late night visit from her grand daughter. Taxi drivers are your friend, your mentor, your language trainer, your cultural guide.

    A Letter From Death Row

    I can't speak turtle, largely owing to the fact that they are ectotherms. I can speak to and understand Mitch McConnell however. I do a great slave impersonation, I'm a superb mimic, but it's not politically correct these days, and besides, I'm on the side of the slaves.

    A Letter From Death Row

    So cynical. I don't think they did it - but someone needs to be held to blame. I can speak Burmese, and they number many on Turtle island, almost like slaves. Recall the American that built a fantastic resort on this island? He was told if he wanted to be breathing in 24 hours, he'd better make himself scarce.

    Been Seeing This Niche in Porn

    Sadly it's a decline in values. The US has led the world in this respect. By no means am I anti porn. But incest is crossing the line for me. I don't even understand the interest in it.

    My young daughter

    I'll see her again. I'll never give up on her. She has a right to see her father.

    My young daughter

    Well I suppose she's six now. She is very white skinned. She has a brown eye and a blue eye, which I'm told is very lucky. You might have seen her on TV. I can't contact her mother. I just sit there very drunk watching her on TV. It's a horrible situation. A beautiful young daughter I really want to see again. But I can't find her, even though she's on TV most nights of the week.

    Do Not Learn Thai

    Well that is dialects for you. I mind how disappointing it was at the outset to find that out. As I say I did the linguaphone course for central Thai, and retained a professional tutor. But when I went to Isaan I could barely understand them. That was because they were essentially speaking more a dialect of Laos then Thai. So I went the whole hog and learned Laos, and backtracked to the Isaan dialect. Along the way I picked up Khmer and Burmese. The whole experience took me about 10 years. But I'm a superb mimic. I can get my young nephew running to get ready for school, by imitating his Grand mother. I can convince my wife it is not me sitting in a dark room. I can ask the old lady at the grocery shop if she wants to come sing Karaoke with me and maybe a bit more. Life is fun, but only if you learn as you go.

    Do Not Learn Thai

    First advise, never ever talk Thai to a government official. It's the mental equivalent of punching yourself in the face. Second advise is it's fine to hear and understand it -- but by no means allow anyone, I mean anyone to know that you can. If you can speak fluently, learn to speak like a newbie. Deliberately make mistakes. Also know that Thai isn't neatly encapsulated in one language - despite the governments best efforts. My wife speaks like a Princess on the phone in perfect centralized Thai. I did the Linguaphone Course, and I had to throw it out the window. Defenestration I think they call it. At home her Mother speaks in such a broad dialect, people down the road can't understand her. But I talk to her. And then there's the condescending voice my wife speaks to me from time to time as if I was a child, with some interesting vernacular thrown in which makes me laugh, which gathers her fury. I learnt how to speak to her Mum via her Nephew, because she doesn't want to teach me the local lingo so I don't chat up all the girls. The one time I chatted a girl up I was very nearly castrated (with the knowledge of the local police). Even so I've had Mothers giving me their girl's mobile numbers. She just wants a ลูกครึ่ง ( luk khrueng ) . And I've had many proposals. Such is life in the village. Finally, you won't like what you hear most of the time. You are a Farang, and your money is welcome, you may even hear you're a handsome man, and even believe it if you're a fool.

    My young daughter

    Seems rather cynical Coss. I would usually laugh, but this isn't a laughing matter. She's my daughter. She's an angel. She needs her father. Thailand reveres her. But I can't even see her. She's being exploited. I regret to say I'm planning on doing something dire.

    My young daughter

    I'm haunted by the realization - I'm just a semen donor.

    My young daughter

    Very Kind words. Stiff upper lip - maintain your resolve. The TV networks hide behind a veil of supposed privacy. I can see her, but I can never meet her. Better I forget her.

    Cracking news

    I'd rather peer into the news Donkey's eyes and recess things for my self than ever get my news here.

    I will never give up on her

    I'll find her if it's the last thing I ever do. I"m gasping, dying, no one except me seems to care.

    My young daughter

    In her English parts, she speaks with my dialect. It's heart breaking

    Do Not Learn Thai

    I speak perfect centralized Thai. I speak different dialects also. I don't consider this a great accomplishment, I just naturally pick up these things quickly - you might call it a talent, I don't know why other people can't do it - but there you are.

    Do Not Learn Thai

    I couldn't acknowledged the point better myself. Although my wife owns approximately 5% of Isaan, she is treated like a Princess in her village. It's hierarchical and that's just how it works there. Now I get away with murder (metaphorically), just because we are married. I'm a Surgeon, and she earns more then I do. I'm not a diplomat, I use my tools to save lives. I completely understand Thai, but I will chat to a taxi driver or a bar maid gladly, but the government are off limits. Btw the people I associate with are principally my family. They will always come first. I don't need to do business in Thailand, I've got a rich wife and a high paying professional job in Australia. Stickman has obviously pinned his colours to Thailand. In some fashion I have too. My wife and I own land in Thailand and Australia. And she is much more wealthy than I.

    Thai girls love sex

    I think it allows clitoral stimulation, much more than most positions, The girl will grind herself on you, which seems to make them go off like a fire cracker. You also get a great view of her body. Anyhow I never initiate it the girl does. I'd never say to a girl, right get into the reverse cowgirl position, it's her initiative. So in summary, the reverse cowgirl gets the women off, but you're hardly being mistreated are you?

    Thai girls love sex

    Western girls are taught to restrain themselves and not enjoy sex. You may wish to offer some thoughts on this. I've met many a Thai girl that just want a hot cock. I mind one girl riding reverse cow girl style, completely on her own volition - and the joy on her face I saw in the mirror was miraculous.

    Do Not Learn Thai

    Well, I kind of agree, and I appreciate your replies. You might mind my post. And whilst It greatly amused me at the the time, it very nearly got me into serious trouble.
