  1. Couldn't have put it better myself. And no doubt they pat themselves on the back - job well done.
  2. That photo makes me so angry. If I had my way I"d feed them to ravenous grizzly beers. Werner Herzog the famous film German director saw footage of someone being eaten alive by a grizzly bear. He handed over footage of the incident to a close relative of the victim after they requested it - and this really stern German - a man seemingly made from steel, said you shouldn't watch it, ,just destroy it immediately, shaking his head and in absolute devastation - reliving the horror of watching it himself. Being eaten alive by a bear is not a good way to go - but those two deserve it. It's just karma.
  3. Quite a thoughtful post. My constructive comment is it's better to sail down the river, preferably on a fast boat, especially seeing the Mekong is flowing well given the monsoon.. Also as far as I'm aware, there is no train from Nong Khai - although I admit that is an amusing thought. I think there was an idea to extend the train line there - perhaps you are thinking of the friendship bridge, but of course I could be wrong. I am aware of what appears to be an alarming smuggling operation over the river to Lao - but it doesn't concern me at all of course. I just tend to notice things whilst getting a massage before the happy ending. Lease a fast boat and abscond with your favourite masseuses, and girls at a *special* rate right now and hole up in Vietnam would be my constructive comment.
  4. Win or lose I don't give a damn. I never cared. And it's a surprisingly good philosophy, to my astonishment - if you take that attitude you just tend to win all the time. But even if you don't - what the hell does it matter? It encourages you to take risks that most people wouldn't. I often look at people and think why are you so careful? I mean you only get one life as far as I'm concerned.
  5. She was upset. I said you should never go to them, let them come to you. And mind be forgiving. Let's go to the temple tomorrow.
  6. Starting up a universal health system is fraught with difficulties in the US. Young people quite rightly say why should I support these ageing boomers that have enjoyed free sex and drugs only to mature and entirely clamp down on it for the next generation? The elderly say I'm not having this at all, I'm not paying for some young bastard - usually invoking racial connotations. It's every man for themselves - I'm fine so you can go fuck yourself mentality. Except if everyone just chipped in you could have a system of health care that would look after the young and old. Bearing in mind when you are young - you will be old in the future. Well let the US reap what they've sown. As you sow, so shall you reap. Suck on that evangelists.
  7. Thailand are handling this very well. I don't particularly agree with the curfew. I don't agree with people who scorn the Thai health system. They do look after their own - and I've often been treated for free - medicines included - although I suppose that is owing to my wife. Still this is a country mile from the system in US, which I've decided I won't work for anymore - no matter how much money they offer me.
  8. I mind driving to Koh Chang and I was caught bang to rights, the police caught me about 5km down the road after passing a checkpoint. I was going at least 30km/h over the speed limit. And to make it worse when the police officer asked for my driving license I pulled open my wallet with at least 40,000 baht in it - his eyes were nearly popping out. I was playing dumb speaking in a really fake French accent. And the officer asked my wife - why the hell were you letting him speed so fast? And she's like I didn't know, the speedometer is in front of him - I can't see it - which I thought was a fairly good point. I thought I'm fucked. I had an open beer in the center console. But she dropped a name and got 100 baht out of her purse - and all of a sudden it was like - well sir just be more careful in the future handing back my license which I pretended not to understand. But still she looked out for me - as I do for her.
  9. I didn't submit tax returns for ten years. But the tax department always gets to you. Their letters were becoming increasingly threatening - like seizing assets. So I finally just buckled down and did all ten in one day, not even bothering to claim any form of return. I was kind of startled when $120,000 was deposited in my account. I'd actually paid too much tax. I suppose that is kind of the polar opposite to say the Republican party.
  10. Before we got married there was some interesting gatherings. My sister in law is kind of the heir apparent to the family fortune - and she knows many influential people. I met an army major whom thoroughly questioned me, like a vetting session. I was aware of what was happening, and I explained to him that I was a Captain in the Australian army. We talked in Thai and compared our experiences. Have you ever fired an M60, etc. It was perhaps one of the most bizzare conversations I've ever had in my life. But we became extremely good friends. Obviously I had his approval. And that was that. All the local police fell in line. I was in the family.
  11. Yeah my apologies, I do go too far sometimes. Of course we can meet up and share a couple of pints. I think I'd had one too many laphroaig's. I do also appreciate your posts.
  12. It's not a threat it is a caution. Of course I'm happy to meet up with you. However what I'm saying is there are many Thai people with vested interests in myself being unharmed. I would never start any violence, but I can definitely assure you they will. And I don't want you to get hurt. I just thought you should know. I've actually enjoyed your posts- disarmed by reality as they are - but as much as I'd like to meet you - believe me you don't want to enter my world.
  13. Call me what you want. I don't care.. I know what I can do - I doubt you do. And if we meet up in Bangkok you should should really be careful - it's highly inadvisable. I have a lot of people working for me, and they are rather protective of me. I mean what they do - well let's just say they aren't as merciful as me.
  14. Deplorable... It sounds like you can't really write English yourself. Rather hypocritical in my humble opinion. I can speak at least a dozen languages, I never understand why other people can't do the same thing. English isn't even my first language. But if that is the height of your rhetoric; well it's exceptionally dismal.
  15. I don't particularly care anymore. If the populous wants either candidate (note not much of a choice) then chok dee. The decline of the USA is like watching a train derailing into a nuclear silo. If that is what the people want, well my view is well, just go for it.
