    Thank you for your comment. I am sure that you have a lot of data behind your assertion.

     

    No... no... thank you for your service as a bar stool doctor or nurse... 

    Let's wait and see who comes out right about this conundrum. 

    I would love to be wrong, but I don't trust rushed out vaccines and who knows maybe people are actually wearing masks in the west...

     

    By the way you say 'WE' all the time I guess you are with the CDC

     

    "On the other hand, we now have a lot of experience"

    "So, we know vaccines work."

     

    And yes... vaccines work once they have been tested over a decent period of time...

     

    I will wait and see

  2. Funny 10 days ago had to go shopping in Pattaya and I was stuck in traffic... I dunno... seems like same old same old ... but I never been big on giving my business to the beach mafia. They've been through a lot in the last 2-3 years maybe this will be the survival of the fittest scenario and only the fittest will survive in the end. Truth is I probably am not a very nice person but I could care less what happens to these hawkers...

    Don't include me in your 'we', I'm OK with death.

    And if you gave me 88k GBP, I'd find a better use for it than trying to extend my life another year.

     

    How selfish would you have to be, as an old man whose life is over, to expect others to give you 88,000GBP/year to live a little longer? Better to use that money to buy milk powder to feed starving African children, etc. ................

     

    First of all... no one can verify your tough guy talk... maybe you are not a walk the walk type of guy... but who knows... everyone is a tough guy behind a keyboard...

     

    2nd... If I were diagnosed as terminal... there is a whole lot of people I would go visit to settle some debts Louisville style... and you can take that to the bank... Who cares if I go to prison?... I ain't gonna be here for a long time anyways...

     

    3rd... If I make it till 93... chances are I would be afraid too, just as my uncle... let me know when you get to 93 then we can continue this debate...

     

    As for the "we" it pretty much sums up how must 'normal' people feel...

    A secondary definition is eager, which is often how I use it.  "I'm anxious to get the new car I ordered; I can hardly wait."

     

    Not really... sorry dude I used to make that mistake all the time too until I learned the right usage...

     

    1experiencing worry, unease, or nervousness, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.
    "she was extremely anxious about her exams"
     
    2wanting something very much, typically with a feeling of unease.
    "the company was anxious to avoid any trouble"
     
    google it or use a decent dictionary

    Prisons are entertainment venues as well

     

    Really dude?

    Seems to me we got it better than a whole lot of other places around this globe. 

    I think you should rethink your prerogatives... for me... who gives a <deleted> about bars and soapy massages when I can still enjoy more freedom than my folks back home.

     

  6. Despite all the criticism, I really hope it will come true and that it won't be pilfered. My wife is currently working for an international company and they have nothing for her. No social security, no pension plan and no salary increase in the last two years while the foreigners there keep getting 2-5k a month salary increases every year. If I am not there my wife will have nothing left in her old age. 

     

    As far as I am concerned, better to try something like this and pray it works than stand by and do nothing. I am not a fan of the PM and this country's heads of state at all... but driving from Bangkok to Pattaya and Banchang has become a lot easier despite everyone saying that the motorway would never be finished because of corruption. 

     

    I really hope this can work.
