But WTF do Donald Trump and USA have to do with Thailand? Diddly Squat as far as I can see.

Why should we keep a thread open to see “What Trump does next?” If I was interested in US politics I would join a US Forum, not green information from a US based Democrats, a Thai based Republican with insignificant comments from New Zealand and Germany. It is not exactly representative of.the actual political situation in the USA. 

Yes quite right, but what I see, is a place where I can chat about stuff, with people I know.

The fact that a bunch of Yankee stuff, that really nearly did, have a huge effect, on all of us, is being discussed here, is as OK, just as if we all wanted to talk about the casinos that are just across the borders of Thailand.

The people who are doing the discussion, are the interesting  bit, even if it is the discussion of Yankee politics.

I think KS said it right, this place is like the local pub, we all like to go there, but I would imagine very few pubs have a narrow view of what's allowed to be discussed inside. Though football aficionado's drinking haunts, maybe the exception to that rule.

Is Gasoline only used in the US and the rest of the world still using horse and cart.

Misleading headline, before you can say that Gasoline is becoming worthless lets look at what gasoline is. It is not a simple product of distillation of Crude Oil but a blend of Hydrocarbon streams from C4, (Butane) through to C12 (Dodecanese), everybody knows C8 Octane. 
Depending on the refining process different refineries make there products differently, either Straight Run, Reformate, Catalytic Cracked, Hydrocrackate, Alkylate, Isomerate etc and then blend the components and add additives to make MoGas (Motor Gasoline).

But the Components of MoGas are not used exclusively in MoGas production, they have thousands of other uses so the components of MoGas extracted from Crude Oil will not become worthless. 

And as a very ill-educated* person in Chemical matters, Plastics, Bitumen, all manner of Chemicals, good old Tar Soap and Sulphur etc, all come from by products. Not to mention the 'making ugly women acceptable to look at' industry (Makeup).

* Bsc Organic and Inorganic Chemistry stage 1, not passed,  but some knowledge crops up now and then, if my brain is aligned properly.

Hi, Guys, why are you so obsessed with this thread? Why want it locked? Don't like it, just don't bloody read it. Sanuk!  

Why do you need elections when you have the media?

Truth and facts...

Paging Mr Coss

Sir, an anonymous subject showing great love for products from crude oil tries to call our meaningful comments " unsignificant " . Which would further be not representative for the actual political situation in the USA . Which would be like what? Shall we start calling Joe Biden a liar or a gift of God? Expecting advice from aforementioned subject accompanied by advice how to keep the community alive otherwise.

The problem with locking it, is that Trumpanzees will just start trumpanzeeing in other threads, as Cav was starting to do in the Movies and Book threads.

Mind you we could easily riposte, by flooding said posts with anti Trump book and anti Trump movie posts, but its easier in my mind to keep it all in one place so those who don't like it, can avoid one thread, rather than be ambushed in every thread....

Like having one shoe full of poo,  that you learn not to wear, instead of having to look in every shoe, before you put it on.

Coss,

I am working on a forum-based concept how to avoid sinsot, getting a loved one out of the bar without barfine , making everybody known  my sweethaert is different, reducing cost of mother´s broken leg and retire sick buffalo. Back to the roots in other words . Wildalaska would moderate the accompanying subforum. Participating members over 65 years would be rated as junior.

What do you think?

If this thread was a local pub it would have gone bankrupt ages ago due to lack of customers

 

 

I do try to keep it simple.

its not the profitability of the pub, but the quality/interest of the denizens therein

I've always wondered Coss, why anyone cares if this pub is active or not. There are threads here I never go to, don't care to and likely never will. It's like the price of tea in China. I don't care either way if it exists or not but I'm not going to go there and say it should be closed. 

It's a head scratcher.

Steve,

Same as you there are topics I don’t care about so just ignore. The problem with the USA thread is that is difficult to ignore since whenever I log on the “Recent Post List” is over 50% USA Thread. 

Unfortunately it is not possible to “Block Threads” only people, if that were an option it would resolve many issues.

You could argue it is a popular thread based on post count, I could counter argue unpopular thread based upon number of participants, statistics can be manipulated either way to suit ones argument / viewpoint so we would be going backwards and forwards until the cows come home on that one (Why did the cows leave home?)

It is more akin to a Private Members Club then a Public House, with 4 members monopolizing the thread and therefore the board. Also things tend to get lost in the USA Thread such as Fossil Fuel v Renewables a couple of weeks ago and the Decline of Gasoline yesterday, these should have threads of their own and not be lost in Republican v Democrat bickering.

I am not saying the thread should be shut down, I just wish that there could be a way the private members club could be less “In your face” so to speak, maybe make an option not to show on recent post list or the like.
