  1. I'd like to think so but all I've read so far seems to suggest October as a date for vaccinated travelers with no quarantine and then only Phuket and Samui where they hope to have done enough local vaccinations. Clearly targeting end of year peak season tourists. https://www.bangkokpost.com/business/2082927/samui-prepares-no-quarantine-plan Bonkers I think.
  2. As always context is everything. Trans costs in relation to other military healthcare costs look to be so small that questioning them suggests an inability get a grip on scale. The Rand Corp study that looked at this https://www.rand.org/pubs/research_reports/RR1530.html suggests TG medical treatment costs are likely to be between 2.4 and 8 million US$. That against 958 million US$ mental healthcare costs and an overall US military healthcare spending figure of 6,277,320,000 US$. Even at the upper bound of $8mil it's pocket change against the $84mil the military spends on ED med

    IOS 14.x

    No issues for me here. Two Xs and one 11. All on 14.3 and working as before. iPad pro also on iOS 14.3 working as before but for one niggle, opening the cover does not switch on the screen. backlight comes on but not the actual display. Pressing the button on top solves it, but still not what I expect.
  4. I spent a good but of time in Indonesia in the mid 90's, Palembang to Pontianak and all points in between. Jakarta was always fun and nights at the Tanamur were always some of the best. The list of close encounters, some of the most bizarre kind, would fill a book. This was all before I had really experienced Thailand and probably just as well since I always felt Thailand was a bit tame compared to my experiences in Indonesia had been, that and the many months at Subic, Olongapo and the surrounding Barrio's. A friend once described the Tanamur quite succinctly as that bar in the original
  5. That's being very generous It's because all those judges have been infected by a secret deep state virus spread by the FBI and the DOJ to make them do the oppositions work without knowing it.
  6. I think it was the Koreans that did (or do) sell cans of Korean air in the airport, so that people travelling overseas could experience the breath of home. Nuts!
  7. I suspect they would tell you it's more the Independence from India than anything. History can be so selective.
  8. The cotton wool of beers, pfeffh!
  9. Your folks getting in a fuzz at the Canadians then: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-53706732 A Canadian brewery has apologised for unwittingly naming one of its beers after a Maori word that is commonly used to mean pubic hair. Hell's Basement Brewery in Alberta said it released its Huruhuru pale ale two years ago, thinking it meant "feather". But Maori TV personality Te Hamua Nikora pointed out the common interpretation of the word in a Facebook video. The brewery's founder said the product would now be rebranded. "We acknowledge that we did not conside
  10. Well obviously the books and manuals that say you can test too much, isn't it obvious. As a percentage of all books, our books, which are very good books, the best books, are clearly the ones with the right information, and its very good information, the best, best ever information. Look here on this chart, it's all green, that's good right, and its a long line, the best ever line, very green. But not China, then I'm going to ban Tik Tok and they will sell it to someone, I don't know, might be Microsoft, lets see, then the treasury gets some money so the Chinese virus will go away. Then when i

    The Covid-19 thread

    In 1960, during my gestation, my mother was offered Thalidomide but as she was not generally predisposed to taking any drugs of any sort unless absolutely necessary she refused it. I think that's called bullet dodging, but it does tend to make you appreciate different things, like arms and legs. I don't think anyone of 70 or over would object to medication just because the effects 20 years on might not be known. It would be a much greater concern for someone of 40.
  12. Word seems to suggest a figure of 390 million Baht as the price of freedom
  13. Well of course Thailand had the red scarves but I suspect they were no match for the bamboo telegraph, Worlds most efficient "Dob you in the shit" alerting system ever.
  14. Quite possibly, you have been warned 😂
