  1. I think that low a percentage is a bit of an uncertainty factor in that most people likely have some degree of what they are calling "Oceanian" since there is a commonality trait. My take is that it means you share a 0.61% genetic trait with others who are most definitely classified as Oceanian. Same same for the East Asian.
  2. 😀 Have been called other things.
  3. The Baht is on the move but seems it is being "managed". Hopefully more to come.
  4. Learning curve, for me okay, 5-10 mins, good website help pages and good online support. has both standalone app and browser plugin. I run it on my MacBook, iPad, and iPhone. Apps for all devices. Also run it on a Windows PC though I am less familiar with those these days. You can also set it up to work on your router if you have one that is DDWRT or TOMATO enabled. I run DDWRT on my routers but though I have had the vpn running on the router I have found the performance hit to be too much for me. And of course it is a lot more involved to set up. Security, always going to be a gamble but unless you are doing something really naughty is this really a concern. Looking at T&A I think is unlikely to raise much concern, unless said T&A are particularly youthful! 😡 Though it can use L2TP, it no longer supports PPTP, that is seen as weak generally and the much preferred OpenVPN and IKEv2 are both also supported. Split tunneling works so you can exclude things from using the vpn, like perhaps your mail client or other specific apps. I can't say I have any real information on who, if anyone is really able to unwrap VPN data. Trust, a hard one, I've used them for a couple of years, seems fine and lets me go where I want online without restriction. No blocked websites. There are local servers which can help with speed or a good choice of global servers that allow you to place yourself pretty much anywhere. I have the regular 12 month subscription and I recall its about $100US a year. p.s. (ish) It also allows voice and video calling using apps like Skype, WhatsApp, iMessage etc to and from areas that regularly block these, Middle East etc.
  5. Have used 3 or 4 over the years but have been with ExpressVPN for the last 3 years or so, excellent, just works, anywhere, even in China mostly. It also comes with a DNS redirector for Apple TV later versions so you can do things like watch BBC iPlayer no matter where you are. Satisfied customer, 5 stars 👍
  6. Okay, well that's not a bad start, provided you can keep up. Next is to get more creative. Find a point of resistance and force the issue. A little private/public humiliation often works. You just need to find the pressure points. Done the right way you turn the negative (messy bathroom) into a positive (fun and games)
  7. A firm spanking!
  8. That's the thing with medication, you need rigorous testing in a well regulated environment to be sure that what you want to believe is really true.
  9. Worth a read https://www.bangkokpost.com/opinion/opinion/1846734/virus-outbreak-comes-at-the-worst-time Comparing SARS, Thailand and the state of play in 2003 against the situation today. I will say that I think the enhanced fear in the current situation is perhaps in large part due to the extended time frame to go from infection to the display of symptoms being up to 2 weeks in this case as opposed to almost immediately with SARS. Everyone fears the hidden.
  10. Wondering if I should go to Hong Kong next week 🤭
  11. The gut feeling is take whatever China says is happening and multiply by 10, or 100. They 're not known for transparency and I don't think much has changed. Lock down of a city the size of Wuhan, pretty much all of greater Bangkok as an idea for size and you can see they are trying, but it must surely be way beyond out of control for them to faced with such face-losing actions.
  12. It may just have been a bad translation but I saw him referred to in one online report as the school "firearms coach". That definitely caused me a WTF! moment.

    Ah yes, the troubling Chinese finger pussy, the more you pull out the tighter it grips. Relaxation until normal service can be resumed usually works.

    Okay, maybe not so fake after all. But using penis and rapid blunt force in the same sentence suggests my own 'experiments' might not be so extreme.

    Just what exactly is a 'snapped penis'. I've tried some pretty off the wall stuff in my time and I cant imagine any scenario that could result in anything snapping. Sounds like fake news to me.

    He already commented on it, bad form indeed.
  17. The knock on from the plane shoot down seems to have played well into the Trump regimes hands. That the Iranian military are clearly shown to be a bunch of bumbling buffoons could not be more beneficial. Who'd a thunk that killing a general could reap such a reward.

    The expulsion of Iran's ambassador to the UK would seem an appropriate response.
  19. True Detective Series 1 Superb performances from both Harrelson and McConaughey. Some nice T&A in places. Worth the watch.
  20. That just says he was not apprehended when boarding in Bangkok for Japan. He was caught in Japan. Scanning facilities in Thailand are generally pretty weak, or at least they have been. Another reason to suggest that the detection of contraband in luggage in these cases is less than likely through due diligence. Who's going to say what really happens to a senior police generals (bagman) luggage when it is checked in?
  21. Never mind arriving in a country with a piece of live ammunition in your baggage, checked or hand carry. The bigger question is what country would allow anyone to board an aircraft with a piece of ammunition in checked or hand carry? I would certainly like to be aware of any countries with aircraft boarding security for persons or luggage that is so weak. Getting on a plane with the knowledge that someone somehow managed to get who knows what on board should be the real concern. Maybe next instead of a bullet we can go for just a small incendiary device.

    Point well made 😁

    Written by a two year old as well it seems.

    So not exactly the kind of guy I should trust with my pocket fluff?
