  1. Moi exactly same. May 15 mail date and no deposit to my US credit union yet. My address on file is here in Bkk so the check must be in a mail carriage at the back of a horse on its way to to the nearest port. If it arrives before Christmas I'll gift everyone in this thread a little made-in-China Covid memento.
  2. I think the Defcon level is dropping. Saw a few people yesterday out and about on a main street near Victory Monument without masks. Which was pretty much an impossible sight till a couple of days ago. With zero (or near zero) cases the past few days the chance of getting infected is about the same as being hit by lightning. People understand this. The QR registering system is harmless but I give it a couple of weeks at best if the case rate stays near zero. In fact, it'll have to be gone when they open the entertainment venues (thought I saw reports of June 15) because they'll never let crowded places operate if there's the slightest chance of a recurrence. And if there isn't then customer registration is a waste of time.
  3. Mr Watkin allegedly told the police that he kissed the two girls goodnight and his stubble rubbed against their faces. He denied sexually assaulting them. "Stubble rubbed against their faces, seriously? You'd think a perv would have better imagination.
  4. Call or chat with Lazada help. I've found them pretty good. Maybe they can make an exception for the opened case by working with the seller.
  5. Very informative post, thanks. My company invests our Provident Fund amounts (employee + company contributions) with TISCO. So would TISCO fall within the reporting requirement?
  6. Mumps vaccine was developed in the 60s. Now, it's 2020. Give the 50 years of scientific advancement in between some credit. Not to mention the incentive of an enormous pot of gold waiting for the first vaccine to market (see billionaire profs already made by Moderna). I'll wager the Guardian article is going to prove accurate.
  7. Given that there are about a 100 infected persons on the loose (rough number based on about 5 new confirmed cases/day x 14 day incubation period) currently in this country of 60million+ your chances of catching C-19 are effectively zero. Unless, of course, you are out and about on the BTS, in malls and such for hours a day. If that is not the case you should not worry and stress yourself for no good reason.
  8. The link https://www.irs.gov/forms-pubs/extension-of-time-to-file-your-tax-return says E-file Your Extension Form for Free Individual tax filers, regardless of income, can use Free File to electronically request an automatic tax-filing extension. So you could file for the extension (to Oct. 15) online.
  9. I looked at MorChana (= Doctor Wins in Thai) a couple of days ago. It doesn't seem to be a contact tracing app. More a med assistance app in case you have symptoms.
  10. Hmm, interesting observation. You might very well be right.
  11. Get this thing: https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-52728998/coronavirus-remote-controlled-mask-invented-to-allow-eating
  12. There is no Thai Chana app, at least as of now in Playstore. And you can scan the QR code with any app. It opens a link to the Thai Chana website where you tap the green button for confirmation.
  13. I wouldn't say all are morons. A couple of profs, one at MIT and another Harvard, are billionaires from investing early in Moderna. Depends on how informed you are about the business. But you are right most playing pharma stocks are day traders watching for a spike in the hype.
