  1. I cant tell anything has changed except the number of farang tourists is noticeably down. Which is a good thing if you ask me!
  2. Short story: Avoid! Dirty smelly moldy rooms. Longer version: I checked in today. 30 min later, I checked out. I am back in town for about 45 days, a buddy and his family are coming in tonight as well and they found a good deal on the web for the President Park BKK http://www.presidentpark.com/ Wanting to be close I book the first 7 days of my stay there as well. I got here 12 hours ahead of them and getting off the elevator on the third floor I was at first hit by the smell. Mold and wet wood. Not a deal breaker for me as I know most places here only A/C the rooms, and I have never had trouble with it before. However get to the room and it is that much worse. They show me my buddies room and it is bad in there as well. Best I can tell is the A/C vent has a bad drain (or no drain) as the "dry" wall around it is just sickening. Also, they have the standard "power up the room by inserting key" thing on the wall. But in this place, when you leave, the refrigerator shuts off as well. I noticed it when I opened it up. And that was what did it. I walked to my old stand by on Soi 20 and got a room there. I'll let PP charge me for one night as I know I can never explain why I am leaving to them well enough, but if they charge for anything else, I will sick Amex on them. I took photos of the mold, ect. I got here 12 hours ahead of them
  3. In the cost vs time, still nothing beets chlorine but a salt system. (Which is still chlorine in the end.) But as far as I know, you can not switch from chlorine to the polymer with out a flush of the system and complete water replacement. Also, there are a few more things you have to do to a pool other than chlorine to keep it fresh and clean. If you have serious concern and still want to use the pool, I would just buy your own 25k bin of Calcium Hypochlorite and dump it in your self. Go in with your neighbors, with the number of pools in LOS, it cant be too expensive.
  4. Compared to where? Here in the states a night like that with NO GUARANTEE of sex would cost you over $500!!
  5. Me either, but the people in Ca voted on it, and it lost! End of story. They can vote on it again and if it wins, end of story. What kills me is how a lot of people really hate "democracy" when they loose.
  6. It would be difficult to do this with only a week in the US. Here banks report transactions over $10k and multiple transactions equaling $10k, so you cant just cash 50 checks for $9999. SO getting a good amount of the money out in cash is going to be your first problem. Cant go to just a ton of different banks because who is going to cash a big check from a sister bank without knowing who you are very well. So I think at best you may be able to get $25k out in a day if you are lucky before they clue in. Now you could tell them you are buying a house and get a certified check. They would buy that, but if they find out in time they will just cancel the check. With all the nigerian scams going on, no bank is going to cash a big ass certified check with out calling the bank directly.... and there you are in trouble again. Yea, so I would likely tell the bank and hope for a reward. I cant see a way to withdraw a good enough amount of it fast enough to live free for 50 years. ( Notice I am not saying anything about how to disappear! )
  7. What do you mean when you say, "good at computers and video games?"
  8. Hahahahahaha!!!!! Funny and sad how that always comes up. It may in the end be the only thing that man is remembered for. No' date=' No, No! I was thinking about the Clinton bars area. What was that Suk 16-18 area?[/quote'] HA!!!! My best friend met his wife there!!!!! Damn.... your good!

  10. At least two bars there last night that had cigars in them. Didn't go in anywhere else and had a blast
  11. Old news. The guy on the American end was like 23 and lived a few hours from me. As I understand it he is in line for life in prison. Serves him right.
  12. Has anyone checked out the Bamboo Lounge at The Oriential? I will be pissed if i can not go have my traditional smoke there anymore.....
  13. With the ridiculous arguments you make, apparently that is about it. (sigh) Anyway, to the rest of you, how is the ban holding up? Is it being Enforced or is it still hit and miss?
  14. A car or simple breathing has a negative effect on those within the same airspace. (Diminishing of O2 in the area.) Will you ban cars? How about breathing or coughing?? That is an absolutely dumb argument for both a chemistry and a biology point of view. You are not very smart are you?
  15. PT me if you need to know when yer back in town mate! BTW, I've a few really nice Ramon Allones Gigantes (a 7 7/8" version of the Specially Selected), at least one with your name on it, to say thanks for everything. Cheers, SD Thanks SD, will do!
  16. I totally agree with this. I do not feel addicted, in fact I just now am having my first cigar in the past two weeks. It is the idea that there is not any choice in the matter at all I don't like; as you say, no freedom. Heck alcohol is addictive as hell, just ask AA.
  17. And you act like a retard, a bully with a keyboard. Enjoy your freedom and I will enjoy mine.
  18. 90% of the British and American army's smoked in wwii. They did pretty well as I recall......
