  1. I, for one, believe that the market has moved away from the dated BF/ST/LT days to more online based with sites such as Tasrebuds, Coffee meets Bagel, Bumble, Happn to name a few, innocuous sounding online dating sites in Bangkok. Why would a girl want to spend 9 hours per night, six nights a week in a bikini dancing on a stage getting cropped by drunken Farangs on the off chance she will get a ST or LT when she can sit at home or with mates on her phone getting online bookings. My 2 cents worth.
  2. I need to watch LPGA more often!
  3. Back in mid-June, Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha surprised everyone by promising to reopen the country to foreign tourists by October. The time had come, he said, to take that calculated risk. At the time, few took him seriously. Thailand had zealously guarded its borders, imposing quarantine and mountains of paperwork on all arrivals since April last year. Foreign tourism, once an engine of the Thai economy, collapsed. Just over 70,000 came into the country in the first eight months of this year, compared to 40 million in the whole of 2019. Covid-19 was successfully contained through most of 2020, but by June this year infections were rising quickly, and the government was being roundly criticised for being too slow to start vaccinating. Opening up in October seemed impossible. But true to his word, the great reopening appears to have begun, albeit with only very modest steps. The night-time curfew has been shortened by an hour, starting at 10pm, and libraries and museums can open. You can visit a spa, but only with advanced booking and a recent negative Covid test. Fully-vaccinated tourists will now be quarantined for just one week instead of two. Further minor relaxations are expected in November. This is welcome news for the battered hospitality industry, but hardly sufficient to get the visitors pouring back in. …..more. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-58758310

    If you are part of a study you cannot take part in a peer review https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clinical_peer_review

    The Covid-19 thread

    14 months is more than neigh time for a peer review to have been carried out and non was forthcoming. We can quite rightly say that the findings of this single study have not been verified
  7. I a, glad they reported “Doctored” and not Photoshopped, or else adobe would be suing them. It is a simple cut and paste like used to be done 25 or so years back. FAIL

    The Covid-19 thread

    As it says in the article, only a single study which has yet to be submitted for peer review. Many physicians are saying the study is flawed https://trialsitenews.com/what-is-the-zelenko-protocol-and-is-it-relevant-to-helping-prevent-covid-19-hospitalization/
  10. Are you sure about that, does that mean if the Wife and I decided to make a couple of erotic movies or take a few risque photographs “For our own use” we would be breaking the law? This case is different to Nong Nat, she made her numerous VCD’s available in many places, including Panthip Plaza, sort of “In your face” whereas this couple posted the ONE VDO on a subscription only website, spot the difference. As others have stated, what is worse, a couple posting an intimate video to make a few Stang or RTP spending tax payers money to subscribe to Porn Websites, as a taxpayer I know which I find more distasteful. They needed money, what else could they do go robbing old grannies or dealing in drugs, mind drug dealing is dodgy nowadays most like to end up dead in a police cell with 4 plastic bags over your head following that line of get rich quick scheme. Nog Nat was in the Public Domain whereas this couple were on a private members only website, major difference.
  11. Flicking the Bean = Female Masturbation (I.e Rubbing the Clitoris) https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/flick_the_bean I didn’t realize you were so naive in Kiwi Land, or is it just British Slang
  12. Typical Thai bureaucracy. The nation is crying out for vaccinations and they are being delayed because “The Paperwork is not in Place” Is Paperwork a euphemism for “Brown Envelops”? No Comment https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/2187607/donated-pfizer-jabs-head-for-talks
  13. This is an actual promotion by Costa Coffee in the UK at the moment. I am sure they knew what they were doing
  14. The thing that the Nicki Minaj case highlighted was just how gullible Millennials and Generation Z really are They really believe that “Number of Followers” gives credence to whatever they post, fricking scary, these people have the vote. I am with PTBM, calling anti-vaxxers stupid (even though the opinion of most) will not change their minds, all that society as a whole can do is make life difficult for them i.e. Travel Ban, Unable to go to Live Events / Bars / Nightclubs, Employment restrictions etc. Basically your choice to not be vaccinated, the consequences are as listed As for anti-vaxxers, it is ironic that most of them pose with fake boobs and trout pout, body full of silicon, collagen and fillers and say they don’t want foreign substances in their bodies.
  15. Exactly, Two consenting adults doing no harm to anybody trying to make some money due to lack of income and government support during Covid. What should they do, Shoplift, Rob Gold Shops, Hold Up Armored Cars?
  16. AFAIK it was the fact they were acquitted that triggered the riots.
  17. George Holliday, the Los Angeles plumber who shot grainy video of four white police officers beating Black motorist Rodney King in 1991, has died of complications of COVID-19, a friend said Monday. Holliday, 61, died Sunday at a Los Angeles hospital, where he had been for more than a month, according to Robert Wollenweber, a longtime friend and former coworker. Holliday was not vaccinated and was on a ventilator in recent days after contracting pneumonia, Wollenweber said. Holliday was awakened by a traffic stop outside his San Fernando Valley home on the night of March 3, 1991. He went outside to film it with his new video camera, catching the Los Angeles officers punching, kicking and using a stun gun on King, even after he was on the ground. A year later, Holliday’s out-of-focus footage — about 9 minutes worth — was a key piece of evidence at the four officers’ criminal trial for assault and excessive use of force. https://apnews.com/article/health-violence-los-angeles-coronavirus-pandemic-rodney-king-017eaf6c0394a6330e3a75537bbed3ed
  18. SAMUT PRAKAN: A young couple were arrested at a hotel in Bang Phli district late on Monday night for streaming their sexual activities online. The 19-year-old woman, known as Kainao, and her 20-year-old boyfriend shared their sexual exploits online via the OnlyFans website, Thai media reported. They were arrested by police from the Cyber Crime Investigation Bureau. The couple admitted to producing pornographic content over a computer network, according to police. Police said they would not take legal action against the owner of the website, which only allowed creators to share content. Police said the arrests were the result of the website being abused by content creators. So that is what RTP do all day, spend tax payers money on only fans subscription and watch Porn
  19. And it slips yet again, it will be Mid-April by end of September at this rate Welcoming tourists back to Bangkok hinges on three factors, including that 70% of its population are fully vaccinated, which could push the reopening near mid-November, according to the City Hall. https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/2185071/reopening-of-capital-must-be-safe
  20. I can read, and write also, how the hell think I am taking onboard your posts and replying? You stated that “France will be extremely useful in resolving upcoming issues concerning Brexit” and then state the Ireland Protocol as one of these issues. FFS the French are totally against changes to the protocol. What else is there? Fishing, French always want to fish UK waters but don’t allow UK to fish French, Trade and immigration, how can the French alone be helpful in any of these issues, the countries have been a tech others throats on and off for over 900 years. Brits hate the French and the French hate the Brits Well considering I left the UK over 30 years ago, have no property or Bank accounts there, worked exclusively in SE Asia / Far East since well before Brexit, do not hold GBP or EUR and so on, Brexit concerns me as much as Loong Somchai the local taxi driver, i.e. Fuck all. You must be very naive, at the least, to think that Brexit would in anyway affect me
  21. What upcoming issues, Do you have a Crystal Ball? Why / How does Brexit Concern me?
  22. “Faire L’enfant” as they say in French
  23. Well that lasted a long time Bangkok's reopening for inoculated tourists will be delayed by two weeks as most of the city's residents are still waiting for their second jabs, while the tourism ministry has pledged to open the city to bring at least 1 million international tourists this year. Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn, the tourism and sports minister, said the appropriate timeline for Bangkok should be postponed from Oct 1 to Oct 15 as the capital city is expected to have administered Covid-19 vaccines to 70% of its residents by then. At present, 37% of population is fully vaccinated, while another 33% are in the 8-12 week interval following their first AstraZeneca shot. https://www.bangkokpost.com/business/2182455/bangkoks-reopening-to-be-postponed 33% since June 3.5 months and they reckon 37% in the next month, I know this government legalized Kratom I didn’t realize they were all smoking it as well.
