  1. That's very nice. Interesting to observe the 11 year cycle in a somewhat real time change. The peak of cycle 24 around 2012-13 when you see the most activity in the form of active sunspots, the dark patches, was actually one of the lowest peaks on record, nothing like cycle 19 around 1956 or even cycles 21 and 22 in the 1980's and 90's closer in fact to the lowest known period f sun activity known as the Maunder minimum. Indications are that the next peak, cycle 25, of which you can see the first few spots right at the end of the video from late last year and early this year, will be an even lower peak.
  2. Bubi will be much habby to know that 😃 Maybe hab special ricence from porice?
  3. The last few months police make everything close
  4. It's already been 8 years, another 7 no problem.

    Seven groups of Falang

    I think they would need to apply at the embassy in their home country for a visa based on marriage. I recall for UK the only requirements were marriage cert, Thai ID card, house paper and my bank statement. All as copies. Pretty sure a "fit to fly" issued within 3 days document and the US$100k equivalent insurance covering COVID-19 will also be requirements

    Any New Jokes

    I like my millennials moist as well.
  7. I'm sure this is all true but "doesn't want to be identified from possible repercussions from the Thai authorities", obviously from amongst the hundreds of other black catholic priests working in Khlong Toei.
  8. Thanks to Coss for the previous videos, led me down an interesting rabbit hole. Along the way was this. The guy these two YT'rs get schooled by is a real piece of work. Great explainer. Early on I learned Basic on computers with core storage, Data General Nova 2000 as I recall, timeshared so the machine was not actually on site. We had cre storage and other cards so we could see and understand how and what computers were, this was around 1975. The way he explained telemetry analysis has them seriously bothered, weeks on hands and knees with a 40 foot long piece of paper looking for a changed number. I hadn't realised they were using discrete TTL. I know it was logic, early PLL's were TTL, seeing the way they produced the integrated circuits, between 2 and 8 transistors looks surprising familiar albeit on a gargantuan scale. About the best 45 minutes I've had this week. When the U.S really showed how to do it and what it took. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mMK6iSZsAs
  9. I've quizzed both my kids at length about this, really just to be sure they haven't faced any difficulties and to look for signs there might be any underlying issues. Both have said they never experienced any kind of problems or even questions, they are accepted as totally Thai, at least so far, now late teens and both very active socially. Both at school and now at university they are mixing with a lot of half Thai other people from various differing ethnicities. The impression I get from them is rather that this kind of racism in Thailand is more an older generation problem.
  10. All upcountry Thai girls know riding the buffalo can be quite "exciting"!
  11. Can you imagine the girls begging for immediate rescue packages when these places open up. Probably no limits to their offers.
  12. Most are online, Thai Friendly, Tinder, Date in Asia, Smoochi and myriad others. Most are CMF (Chat/Meet/Fuck) usually with immediate post payment, beware those who refuse, the hooks can be deep. Smoochi is more OPF (Order/Pay/Fuck) Just a re-imagining of the Thermae, coffee shop, hook up, Beer Bar concept. If you happen to be a massagee shop apologist, just add that requirement to your chat messages. SImples.
  13. Start by grasping the phone in your hand as you normally would, between the thumb and the partially closed fingers of your hand , with the screen up but with the bottom of the phone pointing away from you. Once you have achieved a suitable grip move your hand near to your pants pocket. Ensuring that there is indeed an opening in the pants pocket carefully guide the bottom of the phone to engage with the opening. Carefully continue with the insertion process until the phone is well inserted into the pants pocket. Note that this might require your hand to be fairly deeply embedded in your pants pocket, do not worry and resist the temptation to consider redeployment of your hand. Once the phone is securely embedded in the pants pocket release your grip and withdraw your hand taking care not to allow the phone to become withdrawn at the same time. With your phone now safely located in your pants pocket you can complete the registration task. Retrieve the pencil offered by the outstretched unwashed hand of the grinning security guard dressed in the latest uber scarecrow and who has his face mask wrapped around his chin and one finger deeply ensconced in a nostril. Sign your name, address, date of birth, social security number, sexual orientation, sexual preference, sexual pricing preference and favourite sexual accessories. Write a 200 word statement praising the remarkable achievements of the glorious Snr Sgt Oberstleutnant General Kleiner Schwanz Prayut. Et, voila, shop-on!
  14. Thai Enquirer has a nice piece today 😀 Actually quite fact laden despite the intention being elsewhere. http://www.thaienquirer.com/13861/foreign-affairs-unrest-continues-for-a-seventh-day-in-former-british-colony/ Foreign Affairs: Unrest continues for a seventh day in former British colony Unrest and protests continued for a seventh straight day in the former British colony of the United States as the government vowed to use its military to end the demonstrations, US media reported on Tuesday. The protests began in the small province of Minnesota, located in the agrarian ‘Middle West,’ over the killing of an ethnic minority by state security forces. Protests led by the minority ‘black’ community have erupted throughout the country with the minority group calling for equal rights and better treatment from the government. Protesters have set fire to government installations and looted buildings throughout the country as clashes with security forces continue. The security forces have tried to disperse the protesters with tear gas, rubber bullets and batons but to no avail. US President Donald Trump, who was ‘elected’ in 2016 despite the majority of votes going to his rival candidate, vowed in a speech to bring in the military to end the protests. “I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” Trump said in a national address. Trump used the opportunity to walk to a religious temple in the national capital Washington DC to proclaim his religious affiliation. Holding a Christian bible in his hand, Trump declared the US “a great nation.” Religious Fundamentalism and persecution of minorities Religious fundamentalism and minority suppression has long been a problem in the former British colony. The United States has had a long history of suppressing and persecuting its various ethnic minorities since the country gained its independence from the United Kingdom in 1776. The treatment of its indigenous ‘Native Americans,’ its imported Asian and Black communities, and its Hispanic community has long been a source of friction. American black minority groups were under a program similar to South Africa’s Apartheid policy until as recently as 1964. Today, the ethnic black community is still detained and killed with impunity by the state security forces and black Americans make up the majority of those incarcerated under the country’s archaic judicial system. Religion also plays a major role in governance with religious beliefs separating key state organs including the country’s highest court where many social laws are passed based on the justices personally held religious convictions. [Disclaimer: Native Americans is in quotations because it is a blanket term used by the ruling class of the US to call the country’s original inhabitants before the Anglo-European invasion. The ‘Native Americans’ are comprised of thousands of tribes, all with their own culture, language and traditions.]

    The Covid-19 thread

    No shit! My 19 year old daughter on her way out in the morning 😃/😔
  16. That scene doesn't so much remind me of Thermae as it does the Tanamur in Jakarta, wonder who remembers that place? The resemblances were uncanny.
  17. Are you then western or non-western?
  18. Thing is if they are kiwis then are they not eastern? I mean its pretty far east right. I guess we agree on the general convention of where east and west are. But I'm starting to tire of all these labels, a common one doing the rounds, especially oft repeated by attractive female reporters of south asian ethnicity(sic) is BAME, which seems to mean black asian minority ethnic. Do people really need more titles? Is there empowerment in classification? What's wrong with human, generally applies to all of us. If they deserve a label other than that perhaps such as the first two items in Coss's post above maybe miserable cunt is appropriate.
  19. Isn't this the place where they ship in a boat load of women every once in while?
  20. Are the writing instruments, sheets etc suitably sanitised? Presumably they have hand sanitiser for use prior to signing otherwise... ?
  21. I was initially surprised when I went to Angeles for the first time in a long time just how much it had changed to the extent of the Chinese invasion. I figure another couple of years at the current expansion rate and the Filipinos will start to push back, the takeover is gathering pace. We stayed at a nice hotel in Clark, good 4 star with attached casino, guests were 90% Chinese. If you are familiar with airports and have spent much time in China you can instantly recognise the terminal at Clark as pure Chinese cookie cutter airport design, real drop ship approach with pretty much everything direct sourced in China.

    The Covid-19 thread

    The Financial times has an interesting piece, perhaps a bit on the TLDR side for the limited attention span types but a worthy read. Note: The Financial times is a generally unbiased news source quoted by both allsides.com and mediabiasfactcheck.com as being unbiased and factually correct. adfontesmedia.com states its quality to be above good and its bias to be fractionally to the right of dead centre. As such I consider it to be a tolerably accurate source of data. Inside Trump's coronavirus meltdown My apologies if the above link takes you to the FT's paywall. If you Google on the title of the link above however, at least for me, it should take you to the full article. A beverage of choice should be prepared before digesting.
