  1. I know some from the US, the UK and Europe who also spend long periods here too but the plural of anecdote is not data. The subject of the article and discussion here is about mass tourism, and the statistics (The few that I am able to find online) show that the average tourist spends just over 9 days here. I would posit that those are the vast majority and what would fall under the description of “mass tourism”. I sincerely doubt that they will choose to go under quarantine, or even be able to extend their vacation periods to the extent that they would have sufficient time (Or mo
  2. And then, take the income from that 30%, use the money multiplier effect (velocity of money) and then add the unknown number to the 30% where tourism income (including the gray and black) is re-spent on cars, houses, etc etc etc. I’d guess that your 30% estimate could be rather conservative.
  3. Those June spikes among the 20-29 year olds seem to line up perfectly with the “mostly peaceful” riots in Minneapolis-St. Paul https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_unrest_in_Minneapolis–Saint_Paul
  4. Not only is the judgement swift and universal, but it goes to the extremes of what they think people do in Thailand whether they are an expat or just a short term tourist. To put it bluntly, they think everybody here is ****ing children.
  5. Everything I can find online states that the average tourist stays about 9 days. If, as you say, tourists would regard the quarantine as a “minor inconvenience” then there would be an abundance of people applying for the STV and TAT would be quite vocal about it.
  6. For women, it’s not “sex tourism” but rather “romance tourism” For men, it’s taking advantage of poor brown women. Financial exploitation. Disgusting! For women, it’s empowerment...freeing themselves from the patriarchy and exploring their passions and interests. Liberating! Eat, pray, love I wonder if they get the same scornful looks from other tourists...even if it is actually their real boyfriend.
  7. That’s a good thing. Should the end users of latex now get a purchase subsidy from the government?
  8. Where did I say it was uncommon? What do you think they’ll spend their windfall on? Fortuner or Pajero?
  9. Let’s all remember this next time they come asking for subsidies.
  10. It’s definitely hard for the first couple months. The “keto flu” is no fun either. After about 6-8 weeks, the energy come back. There was a guy on Facebook with thousands of followers who professed that diet was the way to treat P. However, he seemed to fluctuate back and forth and never seemed to be cleared up completely. Of course he preached the “no refined sugars” but where I saw the problem (and many others in the group) was that he was juicing fresh fruits (hello sugar). The only group members who actually cleared 100% were those who stuck faithfully to a super low carb d
  11. Whenever I hear about interesting investment vehicles such as “investment vehicle xyz”, I google “Investment vehicle xyz scam”. Then, a great deal of articles show up detailing all the particular risks. Happy Googling.
  12. Based on your unconfirmed and unverifiable “source“ from your undisclosed and unnamed “country”, I think I’ll stick with my linked stats from th ECDC vs some hyperbolic poster. 1 in 7,000,000 You have a better chance of experiencing just about anything bad that could possibly happen to you.
  13. Here’s a picture of what went into my concoction or “Elixir” as I called it. I just put it all in a glass and took it as a shot. No tea made. I haven’t been using it for quite some time (used it from 2016-2018) as I have found that a low carb diet (with very minimal cheating) works best for me. Unfortunately, over the last 6 months I have fallen off the keto wagon and am paying the price. Thankfully, my P is very mild and the actions I take are more preventative measures in order to avoid it getting worse as I get older. I do however think it was a great supplement (along with
  14. Because... “The global health expenditure on diabetes is expected to total at least USD 376 billion or ID 418 billion in 2010 and USD 490 billion or ID 561 billion in 2030.“ Source: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/20171754/ As the comedian Chris Rock aptly put it... “Ain't no money in the cure. The money's in the medicine. That's how you get paid…“
