    Thai people, pls forgive ignorant Farang ....

    Mindless consumption and accumulation = civilised development? If this is what passes for standard, I'll take a rain check.

    Top 10 Myths About Thai Bar Girls

    Yes. Generalisation usually constitute along the lines with myths and stereotypes. Most, of which, is directed towards the subject matter at hand. Thai girls - bargirls or not.

    Thailand Internet Screwed Up - Again!

    Well...imagine that. Those of us that tire of this highly common [and frequent] activity just go with it. There's nothing one can do, aside from not participating or complying. It's so bladdy universal - the f*ck ups. I reside in Thailand, yet commute frequently throughout Asia and America. Doing extensive online work with Thai-related or Thai-based sites, regardless of where I am, I find that they are the most inconsistent working systems around.

    Oddly enough when I came to LOS in the early 1970s many rural villages had no electricity or running water. Hospitals were few and far between. Upcountry roads were often unpaved. Rural children usually quit school after the 4th grade. Thank God good old Thaksin changed all that in the 1980s and early '90s! :content: The absence of electric and running water is still a common item throughout much of the countryside.
