  1. The problem here is that if you give them too much once they have bought all the toys, baubles and bangles they might spend the rest on education, and that's dangerous!
  2. As I read this, and I think I get this because it passes as 6th grade economics. Give the proles more money to spend and they'll spend it. The more they spend the more we (the gov) make, ergo, higher salaries equals higher gov tax income. Why is this so difficult to grasp, it's barely 5th grade economics? If the gov also collects tax on interest earned, ala UK, then savings are essentially also taxed to the benefit of the gov. Should we wake up or keep living in dreamland. Either way the worker pays.
  3. I'll be in Lagos a few days from now. I can go collect it personally for you. I could then hand deliver it (less my fee) to a tropical paradise of your choosing.
  4. Last time in HCMC I checked out Caravelle, it looked nice enough in the lobby area and the roof bar was pretty busy, didn't see the rooms though. Is the Sheraton significantly better? Any other options at that price?
  5. Sukhothai is really quiet. If you ignore the old town it is a small place. I'm headed there tonight with TG who comes from there. We have found one place in town, hotel with disco and live band, forget the name but if you ask around people will know. Also a nice restaurant across the street and about 100 metres away. That's about it. If I remember I'll get the names later when she wakes up. P'lok, more happening. Same TG went to uni there and again hotel discos plus one or two other possibles. Like CW said, just ask around. Most of the available will be early to mid 20's, possibly uni girls looking to make money or more likely find a boyfriend so if you are a 50+ balding, larger, farang it is going to be harder work. Of course TIT so nothing impossible.
  6. Saw 2012 last night, in the cinema on Siam Square opposite Paragon, forget the name. Like BB said, weak story (very weak I thought) but impressive effects come CGI work. Simple escapist entertainment and my fish enjoyed it too. I'm no fan of John Cusak either finding him acting a little too disinterested and bored in many parts I've seen him portray but thought he was good in this. It was my first time at that particular cinema and after years of multiplex and mega movie show houses it was really nice to be in something more like the size of a "real" cinema, with a really big screen and two tiers of seating. Remember, those days where the cinema had stalls and circle. It was well attended also and in fact I think the whole ambience added an extra star to the whole cinema going experience.
  7. Got Crank on the hard drive at the moment but saving it until a working trip away with my current interest, next week, she enjoys action movies in general and JS in particular. Sounds like it might be fun to watch in bed between rounds!
  8. I just read the details of The Constant Gardener on IMDB, looks interesting and worth a gander. I had to check out you hadn't made a mistake and meant The Uphill Gardener

    When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were when they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning Uphill... barefoot... BOTH ways Yadda, yadda, yadda And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on kids about how hard I had it and how easy they've got it! But now that... I'm over the ripe old age of thirty, I can't help but look around and notice the youth of today. You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a damn Utopia! And I hate to say it but you kids today you don't know how good you've got it! I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have the internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalogue!! There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter, with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10 cents! Child Protective Services didn't care if our parents beat us. As a matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our ass! Nowhere was safe! There were no MP3' s or Napsters! If you wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the damn record store and shoplift it yourself! Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio and the DJ'd usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up! There were no CD players! We had tape decks in our car. We'd play our favorite tape and "eject" it when finished and the tape would come undone...cause that's how we rolled, dig? We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called they got a busy signal, that's it! And we didn't have fancy Caller ID either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your mom, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, a collections agent, you just didn't know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister! We didn't have any fancy Sony Playstation video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600! with games like 'Space Invaders' and 'asteroids'. Your guy was a little square! You actually had to use your imagination!! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen forever! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE! You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on! You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your ass and walk over to the TV to change the channel! There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying!?! We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little rat-bastards! (And some of us who are a little bit older didn't even have TV!) And we didn't have microwaves, if we wanted to heat something up we had to use the stove ... imagine that! That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids today have got it too easy. You're spoiled. You guys wouldn't have lasted five minutes back in 1980 or before! Regards, The over 30 Crowd

    So who has the letter the Irish guy wrote complaining to the family planning clinic? Stuff about the Dutch cap not working cos it was too tight and gave her a headache or the coil that didn't work presumably because it was a left handed thread whilst his wife was most definitely a right hand screw!

    And just to show I lack bias here's one for the Aussie's too. A lion in London Zoo was lazing in the sun and licking its arse when a visitor turned to the keeper and said,"that's a docile thing isn't it?" "No way," said the keeper, "it's the most ferocious beast in the zoo, why just an hour ago it dragged an Australian tourist into the cage and completely devoured him." "Hardly seems possible," said the astonished visitor, "but why is he lying there licking his arse?" "The poor thing is trying to get the taste out of his mouth," said the keeper.

    One for the Kiwis Humpty Dumpty lay on the bed, Little Bo Peep was giving him head, When he came , she started to weep, She knew by the taste, He'd been fucking her sheep.
  13. No flippers to play with? I'm rather bored in Dubai but did get a Chinese take away last night, was scrummy and may need a second helping. Unfortunately might have blown it with the hotel gals, ah well don't think they were ever on the menu. If you really want to be bored make the mistake of going to Sibu instead of Cebu.

  16. In a very nice 5* hotel in Deira. Looks like a sort of arabian US suburb. Nothing outside the hotel to speak of just some residential homes and what looks like an f'ing long way to anywhere. Seen barely a single taxi. WTF? So guys any ideas what to do. It's Thursday afternon here and I am damn sure that even with the dreaded month around the corner that there are places to go here. Should I just jump in a taxi and head for the York hotel? What will a find on a day like today? Cheers.
