  1. 'Drunk Sun Express plane passenger strips off and asks stewardess for sex' forcing flight to make emergency landing http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/drunk-sun-express-plane-passenger-6670686
  2. If the Earth is not spinning, then the passage of the sun (and the moon) across the sky, and the progression of alternating daytime and nighttime, would mean that the sun rotates around the Earth. The Earth would have to be the center of the Solar System. And - the orbits of the other planets of the Solar System could not be explained in any fashion. The key failing of the video is that it did not differentiate between velocity, and accelleration. Within an environment where all masses are moving at a uniform constant velocity, therte is no sensation of movement. Our bodies - and all other masses - can only sense acceleration or decelleration.

  3. NEWS Flight attendant reportedly made almost $1 Million having sex with passengers An air hostess reportedly earned around £650,000 over a two year period by having sex with plane passengers in the toilet. The scale of the woman's 'business' only came to light when she was caught in the lavatory recently, and she was subsequently sacked. It is reported that she was working for an airline in the Middle East. A source speaking to the Saudi Arabic language daily Sada said: 'She admitted that she had sex with many other passengers during flight and that she preferred long distance flights between the Gulf and the United States.' Airline sources believe the woman charged £1,500 (Dh7,400) for the mile high liaison, an amount she earned on every flight. The airline has not been named specifically, but Sada has reported that the flight attendant was immediately sacked. http://www.airlive.net/2015/10/news-flight-attendant-reportedly-made.html On the bright side, at least she didn't get stoned to death.

  4. First, check out the average graduate salaries at http://www.npr.org/sections/money/2015/09/18/440973097/obama-wont-rate-colleges-so-we-did?utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=planetmoney Then look at what they are paying school janitors in NY City: http://nypost.com/2015/09/20/average-nyc-school-janitor-makes-109k-a-year/ How much longer can a country like that survive? Cheers! SS
  5. What makes this bitter pill for Boeing to swallow is that the Boeing VP for SE Asia is Ralph "Skip" Boyce, former US Ambassador to Thailand. http://www.boeing.com/company/key-orgs/boeing-international/ralph-boyce.page SS
  6. I understand that at least one of the gals got beat up pretty severely. I will give the two credit for bravery - there's nothing like parading half nude in front of a bunch of Muslims, to effectively invite them to gang rape you. SS
  7. All I see is a bunch of fighting age males. In my eyes, that automatically puts them in one of two groups: 1. ISIS fighters infiltrating Europe to cause mayhem, death, and destruction. 2. Useless fucking cowards who didn't have the balls to defend their own homes and soil. Either way, they are useless, and should be expelled. SS
  8. As featured in "From Dusk to Dawn" (and they sure seem to be channeling "The Doors"):
  9. Where did you get that idea? That was not in the article. It said and Did you maybe misread this line as having referred to Andy Hill's own car? :
  10. I like the one at upper left. But - this isn't my circus, and these aren't my monkeys. Cheers! SS
  11. Flash - you forgot volcanoes. And - it is the only place I've been where there are more guns at street level than in the USA. In Thailand, every building security guard is constantly blowing a whistle. In Manila, every building security guard regularly discharges a few "warning shots". I love the ladies there. But - economic powerhouse?? I think not. Cheers! SS
  12. I'm sure the will find lots of suspects on Suk Soi 9.........
  13. I walked past the location on 11 August - it still has a corrugated barrier fence up, completely concealing the work in progress. I think I heard that it will open mid-September. The Drunken Leprechaun is open - occupying the same type of space on the opposite side of the entrance-way into the hotel. Cheers, SS
  14. Yeah - as if we all know that at a drunk-driving checkpoint,it is a simple matter to avoid the test by just telling the good inspectors that you do not drink, and - silly boy - get out of my way .... SS
  15. There are two great websites that rational people need to visit, to fortify themselves against the global warming lunatics: http://www.numberwatch.co.uk/warmlist.htm Captures articles that attribute all sorts of bizarre and contradictory effects to "global warming" https://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/polar-meltdown/ To appreciate this one, you have to scroll way down the page - to see all the clippings of articles going back 300 years, all describing how the Arctic is melting away, and about to disappear. Cheers, SS
  16. The lady certainly appears to be a tad bit upset about something. At least none of the windshields (windscreens) shattered. SS
  17. Mekong - You seem to have professional qualifications in the general topic area. Do you have any thoughts about whether "Bangkok is sinking", and about whether "rising sea levels" are a threat to Bangkok over the next 15-35 years? I have zero faith in the main steam press, but I will listen to someone who actually gets their hands dirty in the "real deal" work at hand. SS
  18. I have to say that I am highly skeptical about two claims: that ocean levels are rising, and that Bangkok is sinking. For more than ten years, I have passed over the Sukhumvit Road bridge that spans the Prakhanong canal almost every day. There are homes built on a finger of land that extends toward the bridge on the south side of the road. That finger has a retaining wall - maybe 70 cm high. I have seen no change whatsoever to water levels - even when nearby Soi 50 was flooding slightly, during high tides back when the big flood was in progress up north of Bangkok. What is true is that in many places throughout Bangkok, what were once canals and swamps were filled in with rubble, and garbage, and wood, and then paved over and built upon - either roads, or housing developments - and the crap underneath has compressed and compacted - and this "settling" has damaged a lot of roads and low buildings. But - all the high-rises seems to be built on foundations that have been placed atop pilings, that presumably go down to bedrock. They were sinking pilings at what are now Terminal 21, Interchange Tower, and Em Quartier for YEARS, before they ever started above ground construction. I think all the talk about Bangkok being under water in 15 years - or even 50 years - is rubbish. One man's opinion. Cheers! SS .
  19. The male passengers seem pretty happy - but some of the female passengers look a bit annoyed. SS
  20. For a good laugh, go to https://stevengoddar...polar-meltdown/ and scroll down the page - to see dozens of press clippings going back to the early 1800's, reporting - in almost every decade for the past 200 years - the ongoing and urgent catastrophe of current "unprecedented" warming of the Arctic. Cheers! SS
  21. Well, it looks like the British won't have to worry about Global Warming: http://www.express.co.uk/news/nature/586404/Britain-freezing-winters-slump-solar-activity Cheers! SS
  22. I would be beyond shocked if ANY Western country complied with a Thai extradition request that was based on lese majeste violation. SS
  23. America on its death bed: http://www.theonion.com/article/experts-say-best-option-now-keeping-nation-comfort-50617 SS
  24. Hi Flash - It's easy to find Thai fish sauce - Tiparos or Squid brand - but I haven't seen the real Vietnamese stuff anywhere. I found the same link that you suggested - but that market sounds like it is mostly finished/prepared foods, or fresh produce - not manufactured basic ingredients. But - I will take a look next Sunday. Cheers, SS
