  1. If it was as easy for a Thai to get permission to stay for one year in the US, renewable indefinitely, as it is for us to stay in Thailand, I suspect they would gladly do 90 day reports.

    What Film (Movie) Have You Just Watched?

    Dr. Strange. The premise is absurd but it's an entertaining movie.
  3. With the retirement extension, you will need to be in Thailand sometime close to and before its expiration to apply for and get a new extension.
  4. Did my one year retirement extension (2nd one) last week week and they weren't using the form.
  5. US Department of State has info on citizens dying abroad searchable by time period and country through December 2015. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/statistics/deaths.html If you can avoid offing yourself and don't ride a motorbike, your prospects improve immensely while in Thailand.
  6. Authorities charge suspects routinely. It beats charging someone who isn't a suspect.

    What Film (Movie) Have You Just Watched?

    Sicario, a well imagined story about the war on drugs in the US Southwest. For a major share of the movie, your evil twin will be sitting on your shoulder munching popcorn, saying "Well, if that's what it takes." Then it goes beyond that.
  8. Note that it is a dot Com url. Not conclusive, but I'm dubious. Compare http://nasa.gov

    Renewing Ais Package

    If you need to top up an AIS number take a look at https://aiseservice....rviceWeb/. You will need to be able to receive text messages on your phone with the AIS Sim.

    90 Day Visa

    One of us is probably missing something here, but a tourist visa gives you 60 days and you can extend it for 30 with a visit to Thai immigration with no requirement for money in the bank and no age restriction.

    Inguinal Hernia Repair

    It was a long time ago I had that surgery done with a spinal. No pain at all during the procedure which was good. Having the lower half be like a sack of potatoes for three hours after the surgery and then almost passing out when I went to piss, not so good. A couple of friends who have had lots of lower body surgeries, have told me always go for the general anesthesia, you either wake up or you don't.

    Memories Of Nixon?

    IMHO that excuse is so lame it may be true. She probably could have accessed her private email on a government issue BlackBerry but it would have been a hassle . But yes, she should have carried two phones if the ability to exchange sweet nothings with Bill or whatever was all that important .

    When I saw the thread title I was afraid you were serious.

    Expat Or Immigrant

    A Mexican on a temporary work visa in the US teaching Spanish would be an expat. By law, she could not be an immigrant while on the temporary, non-immigrant visa. At least in the US, immigrant is a legal term while expatriate is not.

    Expat Or Immigrant

    In the US as well as in Thailand. A Norwegian, for example, who becomes a landed immigrant in Canada or a lawful permanent resident in the US is an immigrant
