  1. Past hour
  2. A road's toll is supposed to be at a price point that pays for the road's construction, whilst still being affordable for the masses to use.
  3. The EU does NOT have a government. Read EU Council, EU Commission and EU Parliament.
  4. From experience - they prefer having a farang husband to pay the bills and there's often a Thai boyfriend running up those bills . I'm OK though cos my girl's different .
  5. I'm seeing different versions of this solution more frequently now... A child seat on a scooter, sometimes with a little belt...
  6. As Crocodile Dundee would probably have said: 'that's not a bushfire....'
  7. Those insufferable pricks that speak like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and think Thailand is a yoga retreat.
  8. Reported Troll post removed.
  9. Call me a cynic, but this headline does not fill me with a warm inner glow and unbounded admiration for the RTP.
  10. I recall when a 9mm round was 35 pence. This is about 14 baht. This was some time ago and I have no idea how much a 9mm round is now. 40 rounds would be 560 baht. Unless he got the ammo free, that's a lot of lao kao. As has also been said what goes up, must come down. 40 rounds shot into the air could kill a lot of people or other animals. He didn't think of that as part of being so familiar' with guns.
  11. Noooo! Not the extra thick crust! Pattaya is just breaking apart, man. You just have to suck it in and deal with it, fat boi! Times are challenging...
  12. You mean it will be Trump vs a guy standing on a box.
  13. Knowing where the real corruption lies is not rocket science------at least in the case of California and in particular San Francisco. That's why the San Francisco Federal Credit Union is suing the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency. Also, be advised that in San Francisco it is the Board of Supervisors who regulate taxi fares, not the cab companies. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm all for free enterprise just as long as the playing field is level for all the competitors------and it's not.
  14. Knives Out This is worth a watch---I only picked up on it because I usually take anything that Toni Collette is in, & hadn't seen her since the TV rape series Unbelievable she only plays a small part in this one, but it has many other stars in it. Including the James Bond guy.... Its just a light but entertaining murder mystery ..................
  15. If you can swing it, business is much better. Emirates A380 is great, but going through Dubai makes fo a long flight. That said, the lounges are great. Were it me, I’d fly business to LAX and book a domestic flight separately.
  16. See they are sticking with the usual open honest transparency they are known for then.
  17. I'm in a similar position as the OP (6 years in Thailand on Tourist Visas and VE, and I know people who have been doing this for 15 years, however that doesn't mean I will be able to do it for 15 years). But to ask what immigration knows, and how I can use any lack thereof to my advantage, has never crossed my mind. I just assume they know all my travel history and have the three passports I have been through linked to my person. I need a new passport every 4 years, and I get the 32 page version instead of the 48 page version in my home country. The price per page is similar, and with 32 pages there is less flipping when looking for something than with 48 pages.
  18. Phuket health chief explains vague virus updates By The Phuket News Phuket Provincial Health Office (PPHO) Chief Thanit Sermkaew at one of the virus situation daily update meetings last week.

  19. Not sure why the City lot are so touchy about the bann, they've always said that they are not worried about winning the Cl, mind you that doesn't seem to be the opinion of the owners.
  20. Can you imagine what it would be like for us in Thailand if the Corona Virus had originated in a Farang country. We would all be persecuted as unclean.
  21. And this part hits the nail on the head: "Bloomberg Economics told us that the £200 billion figure it came up with was an estimate, as it’s impossible to be sure what the economy would have looked like if the UK had voted to remain in the EU in 2016. This looks at how much lower GDP is in real terms than it otherwise might have been had previous trends (from before the vote to leave the EU) continued between 2016 and 2019." It's impossible to even estimate what would have happened to the UK's GDP since 2016 if we'd voted to remain in the EU. Using previous trends is pointless, as we all know global economies are unpredictable. But it probably got a few Bloomberg employees a decent bonus for the extra publicity.
