  1. Past hour
  2. Mueller and his team prepared summaries designed to be released to the public that were not classified nor pertaining to ongoing investigations. Yet Barrs discretion seems to be somewhat different. Let's put Mueller under oath in front of Congress in a public hearing and let him speak for the first time. Otherwise one of his prosecutors could leak a copy of said summery Sent from my SM-J250F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  3. Yes, but the ones overpopulating the world exceed the ability of anyone to improve their lives to the point they stop reproducing. Having overpopulated their own country into ruin, they now choose to move to less populated countries where they continue with their desire to over reproduce, and by so doing ruin those countries as well. I also don't know that poverty does increase reproductive rates. The Thais seem to limit the number of children they have despite many being very poor. Seems more like a cultural thing to me. The Saudis in the 90s thought it normal to have 8 children by each wife, despite all being educated and certainly not poor. PS. Just realised this has gone far far away from galaxies and black holes, so better not continue on this track.
  4. Turns out she was in her hotel room, not a public place. poor reporting source Need a fact checker
  5. I only speak to Admirals and higher especially at sea.
  6. Both companies I used had options for amounts for evacuation. You had to select at the time of purchase. No telling if they actually pay up, but for 20 USD a week I felt better. ( And I was an actual tourist) Sent from my Nokia 6.1 using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  7. Some quite confused - to be polite -replies on here, & one comment about her: "parents should be punished...& stupid girl"...... Astonishing! Everyone needs to keep themselves safe, & we don't have any 'rights' in this, at times, harsh world. However, she did not deserve this. The level of immaturity of some posters on here....I can see why you have problems in your lives.
  8. Very strange. My Bangkok Bank account that I opened with my Thai ID allows foreign transfers.
  9. www.permitfortravelers.fda.moph.go.th is not working. Does anyone have a current link for getting permission to bring pain pills / prescribed controlled substance out of the US into Thailand? Since the above link includes "fda", that has to be a USA form for moving it out of the USA into Thailand. Is a Thai form required also? What do expats do when going out of Thailand to another country and want to take along the pills which were carried in from the US and brought into Thailand? Does the USA form suffice?
  10. This particular AG has a history which is less than shiney. Under papa Bush he lied about the attempt to allow the FBI to arrest Noriega outside the United States saying it didn't violate international law in his 'summary' to Congress but when released 3 years later the actual report noted 4 international laws it would violate. He also advised papa to pardon the crew charged in the iran/contra fiasco. Sent from my SM-J250F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  11. Certifying a passport is an easy process, where your embassy creates a "True Copy" of your passport. Usually, banks, or government offices in Thailand want to have certified documents. The certification of a passport is done at your Embassy/Consulate and is needed at some government offices to issue certain documents. This may also require a translation of the certification from English into Thai which is also done by your embassy, or a translation service. The embassy then puts a stamp on it with the day/month/year and puts a "True Copy" stamp on it.
  12. They might bump their new submarines on it and chip the paint?
  13. well, I am happy to report the fast-track service I used totally saved the day. the plane from Hong Kong arrived on time but didn't taxi to the gate, so that was a worry - we were ferried in a bus to a different arrival spot. As soon as we landed I switched my phone back on and the guy was calling to ask where to meet. I didn't understand what he was trying to say. More anxiety. However, when the bus stopped I ran through the entrance door on the ground floor, turned the corner - and there he was, holding up a board with my name on. I just about hugged him. He escorted me through immigration - then they didn't bother/forgot to check my bags through x-ray - so we were "on the other side" and ready to go over to the Indigo Air check-in counter in about 10 minutes flat. Fantastic! The guy spoke to the Indigo check-in girls - they immediately put me to the front of the longish queue, even offered me an exit row seat, gave me my boarding pass and we were on our way back to immigration for the return leg" of the mission. He took me through the x-ray baggage area - we breezed through but then he vanished, apparently waiting for me to whiz through immigration. Here, there was a hiccup - when I arrived at immigration, the officer tried to stamp my passport but I said NO, please wait. I need to first get a reentry permit. The officer said no worries, we'll do this, then you can get it. I wasn't having that. These reentry services are on the "outside world" side of immigration. You always have to see them before immigration. I thought it was possible they'd decline the permit, saying I'd already left the country. A workmate forgot to get his done - it cost him thousands to fly overseas again and re-process his work permit. So I wasn't taking the risk. The officer kept saying it would be okay but he finally relented (or lost patience with me) and allowed me to first go over to reentry permit area. The permit was processed in about 10 minutes but the woman who did it said she couldn't give me back my passport cos her supervisor needed to sign it - and he'd gone off somewhere for a break. Aaargh. Another 10 minutes and he returned and recognised me from the day before, when I asked him to process an extra reentry permit or upgrade me to multi-entry, to save me having to to do it the next day between flights (he'd refused, said getting a second reentry or upgrading to multi-reentry is not possible). Anyway, he signed it off, and the same woman who'd done my reentry permit then kindly escorted me back to the immigration area a few yards away, stamped me out of the country - and I was done! I then then had time to cruise around before going to the departure gate - whereupon the fast-track guy was over there waiting for me at my departure gate. I wasn't happy he'd done a bunk but I thanked him and handed him a small (100 baht) tip and he seemed very happy with that, asked me to pose for a "happy customer" pose and added me on Line. I was super happy it had all gone to plan. Points to remember: 1. People at work thought this fast-track thing must be dodgy, even illegal - not at all - they even have their own fast-track lanes at both baggage x-rays and immigration now, so it's all above board and smooth as. It seems to have become an extra service offered by the airport. 2. The fast-track guys work all day at the airport, they are mates with all the staff and you, the customer, get treated like a VIP when staff realise you're with them. so thanks for all your comments and advice. I for one can certainly recommend using them. They saved me a lot of money and aggravation.

  15. Nice if you can afford it. Most can't, which is why more fly economy than business. But you knew that.
  16. I honestly dont care and your constant screeching about it is enough to make me care less. Their country, their rules
  17. Replace with "fixing" I like the yellow outfit, says it all, follow the money.
  18. The fridge is indeed likely to be the biggest overall user due to it being on 24/7, but if it's one of the little mini-bar type the consumption should be lower. If you already have it there should be a rating plate on the back and maybe it still has the energy consumption sticker. Maybe amortize the cost over two low seasons, you could then spend 40k on a bigger system. The higher voltage inverters will draw less current (and thus need thinner [cheaper] wires). 1000W @ 12V = 83A 1000W @ 24V = 41.5A 1000W @ 48V = 21A The bigger grid-tie systems tend to have 48V battery packs (4 x 12V) and solar strings of several hundred volts.
  19. That's why they invented business class which over the last 10 years has improved to first class standards on some airlines.
  20. Once we're free from the EU human rights laws I'm going to lobby my MP back home for some reciprocity regarding the rights of foreigners who live in the UK. Simple things like limiting the number of Thais who can have citizenship to 100 per year, land ownership by foreigners who's countries don't allow British citizens to own land in their home country, that kind of thing.
  21. Agree with what you say, except he wasn't little, either in stature, or in the rest that you mention. It must have been an enormous shock for him when he realised his stooge wasn't going to be able to carry on with his programme, and all the crimes might come out.
  22. Total mumbo jumbo, again no such thing has any proof whatsoever, except of course in "belief" and "Faith"
