  1. Man with fetish for stealing flip-flops arrested in Nonthaburi At one time, during the 1960s and 70s, flip flops and thongs were the same thing. It is only in recent years that the word thong has been applied to a piece of female underwear. 'nuf sed The title is misleading as it is incorrect. In all of my years as a Clinical Psychologist, I have never heard of a person having a "fetish for stealing flip-flops...". A fetish is a form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body, etc. The act of stealing cannot be a "fetish" as that is an action not an object.

  2. There is no mention of the vendor being Muslim only the store she allegedly purchased the products from. Neither is it possible to imply that she normally buys chicken and not pork. 'nuf sed. You must have been binging on Little Britain since the striking of the virus. 'nuf sed
  3. Sorry, wrong. Those used in atomic submarines and for space craft are considerably superior. 'nuf sed.
  4. You forgot to mention another major requirement in most countries in the west when opening something like this, namely, does he have the right training and the appropriate certificate of qualification. Even in Thailand a person is supposed to have the same. To be a barber requires the minimum of a six month course to get a certificate. He could be in some sort of trouble if reported to the correct authority especially as he does not have the right equipment. 'nuf sed.
  5. My first question would be, is she sure that her family member will definitely transfer the land now she has invested so much to upgrade everything? 'nuf sed.
  6. Bit of a waste of time and resources considering it takes up to 72 hours to get the results. The persons being tested could be anywhere in the country at that time. Currently there is not test that provides instant results. Question, why would people have to remove their footwear when in the specific areas where the pets are located? Could be messy and add to what is taken out unless provision is made for people to wash their feet on exiting. 'nuf sed.
  7. Sorry to say but you are slightly off in your claim that the origin of the word JOBSWORTH was taken from a 1960s mantra. In fact, it was first used during the 1960s (you are correct there) but it came from a song titled "Jobsworth" by British/South African singer/songwriter Jeremy Taylor and refers to a low ranking official who follows instructions and procedures to the letter. It is often done just to p**s a person off and to make the low ranking urchin feel important, i.e. he is powerful and your are nothing. It could easily be applied to many Thai IOs dealing with our visa problems, who will tell you things like all orders must first be placed in writing in duplicate or triplicate with the appropriate department before being submitted, etc. and only when such supporting documentation has been received will we be able to, blah, blah, blah.
