  1. Snipers, another way to take care of business. And from another country yet. How to not get blood on your hands as an Iraq politician. Geezer
  2. It is no wonder that so many people in the past left Great Britain, for some other part of the planet, to have a better government if nothing else. Seeing this stumbling along in the English Parliament is embarrassing, and boring at the same time. Who ever is still stalling for any deal, where they get everything they want is just dreaming. Get on with the thing already. Geezer
  3. Wow another storm and more bad times for Japan. Good Luck to those affected by this storm, I am glad that I did not head for my Winter trip to Thailand, with the weather like this. I am hoping for more peaceful conditions in January.
  4. Mr. Carbon Tax, Trudeau, Mr. Black Face, Trudeau. Mr, give 10.5 million to a killer, Trudeau, does not deserve to be a PM of Canada. What Trudeau deserves is to go back to being an obscure teachers aid, is some rich kid school in Canada. That's my opinion anyway. Geezer
  5. I have visited quite a lot of places in the north part of Thailand. Life on the farms and small villages are, hand to mouth, and there are a lot of poor families. This is the facts, and when some of the teens get to 16 or 17, they go off the farm to try find work that will make money for them and their fathers and mothers. I met a few of these young women who had ID's showing that they were older, and that is how this whole situation can and does happen. It is Asia, bye the way. It is not where most of the commenters on this forum are from, try to remember that and that Thailand and other countries in Asia are a lot different that say countries like Canada, USA, Australia, etc.. Geezer
  6. This won't happen again until the next time, just like a few cases in Canada and the USA. Oops, sorry never again, promise, promise. Geezer
  7. RIP to the fellow who is dead, with the Thai reporting, if he was not fully off the floor, they said he was kneeling. Think about where this event happened. Thailand reporting has been criticized by lots of commenters about lots of news stories. This story is no different. I like staying in Hua Hin, as there is lots to do in the city and area. It is the only place in Thailand where I feel okay to ride a motorcycle. Geezer
  8. Well to some people these two women do not look over weight, or old or even to the Thai photographer, Ugly, so maybe they look okay. Wow some of you bar stool commenters are sure getting fussy in your old age.. Geezer
  9. I had a policeman friend in northern Thailand that probably fell asleep as well, and totalled the Police chiefs car. Once the car was repaired, my friend promptly took a transfer to another part of the country, to save his face. Then eventually quit the police department, as the pay was not that much and he found other work as a hotel chauffeur in Bangkok. Such is life in Thailand. Geezer
  10. Here is Thainess, this truck would not be allowed to operate in a 1st world country with the windshield like this, or the pickup with a box full of people like the 2nd picture. Face it Thailand is a 3rd world country and will not change. All sorts of accidents happen in Thailand that are far less frequent in countries with laws that are enforced. Geezer
  11. The video of this accident show lots of vehicles along the road and some going by at a fast speed. Looks like a place waiting for an accident to happen, then it did. Third world country with a third world accident and result. I do hope the pickup driver gets a long time in a jail cell to think about his actions. Geezer
  12. So Turkey is backing Syrian rebels to fight the Kurds? What kind of a situation is this, is Turkey trying to keeps its hands a bit clean, by using rebels to do its fighting? Maybe the Syrian army of Assad should kill off all of these rebels, so that Turkey needs to use its own people to fight its battles in Syria? Just my thoughts to this long, long war. Geezer
  13. Maybe Hong Kong is due for a Typhoon, that would shut down the protesters and government clashes , at least for a while. Just my thoughts of the day. Geezer
  14. If Thailand was not a tropical country the tourism would not be nearly as good. That goes for all tropical countries, where people of northern countries, or cold countries go to as they are tired of their cold weather back home. TAT will never give accurate numbers as they really do not have to. Anyone want to come to northern Canada and enjoy minus 20 and a couple feet or nearly a metre of snow? No I did not think so. Geezer
  15. This story is sooo last year, just like the cave rescue. How about some good stories for this year, like that shiny steel rocket concept for mars. Rah Rah. Geezer
  16. There is a vaccination that will keep you from getting measles, and millions have had this over the years. Why are there still cave dwellers who refuse to get vaccinated, that is beyond me. They should be thrown in jail after getting their shot until the infectious period, is over. Geezer
  17. Maybe it is time to just let the Middle East take care of their own problems. Maybe it is time to step back and stay out of the conflicts and let the blood flow where the fighting is at. Maybe the Turks can find the prisons where the ISIS prisoners are at and deal with them as well. I get sad when I hear of foreign soldiers dying in the ME, for any of these conflicts. Geezer
  18. I just wished that the hotel staff would warn their customers 24 hours ahead, to stock up on their alcohol beverages, then every thing would be rosy for the 24 hours of non alcoholic festivities. I am also very grateful for the small Mom and Pop business that sell, alcohol, along the side streets in almost every city I have stayed in in Thailand. Geezer
  19. Another good read from you Rooster. I am doomed never to be a Thailand Expat, as I find the weather too hot from March to May, and even in late February. I am not fond of the mosquito diseases as well so that takes care of the Rainy season. I miss Big Joke in the news, and find that Big Too is boring I do hope that the baht will slump over the Winter months and make costs a bit better for all. Geezer
  20. I agree, that these small moon like rocks should get a different status. I still think of Pluto as a Planet, and not the king of the dwarfs. Pluto just goes where no other planet goes on its orbit, and sadly, each day it is getting more distant from earth. I am glad the probe that passed Pluto was able to send back the great photos and all the information that it has. Geezer
  21. Maybe some day Texas will get harder on gun shooting killers, but I will not hold my breath. I do hope they find this guy guilty though, and he meets his end quickly. Geezer
  22. I will be happy to see people going into space from North America again, The Russians use a very tried and tested system, but it is getting to be pretty old technology, and the new Rockets should be much more roomy, as well. Good Luck Geezer
  23. In Canada, if a parent did that to their child, they would be in jail. Also in Canada, I see many spoiled teens who should have felt some discipline when they were young, but now they are delinquents on the streets, bumming for money at street corners. Did the kid really need firecrackers? Just a question. Geezer
  24. I only travel to Thailand because it is a tropical country that does not have minus temperatures, and the price of food is still decent, and I pay 550 baht per night in the guesthouses where I stay. I am not happy with the strong baht, but I can still afford to be in Thailand for 2 months each year. Not sure about the future after 2020, but will see. Today I look out my window in Canada and see snow on the ground. the Tropics are on my mind. Geezer
  25. When I am in Thailand I follow the business people who eat at the street vendors, as they know which ones are trying to keep the food clean, and the Thais do not have a great medical system and most cannot afford to get sick. Do not eat where the constructions workers eat in the side alleyways as that is not the best of the food vendors. Geezer
