yes, look up "phantom limb syndrome"

 

 

basically they belong to the subculture of painting graffiti and simply view it as acceptable or normal or tolerated. they did not anticipate consequences in thailand 

Good one! But your comment assumes the sufferer once posessed one, no evidence to substantiate that claim. (Not to quibble that the brain is an organ, not alimb!)

Ha ha ha, just seen the shirt hes wearing, is he all there? Wearing that shirt in Thailand, hope he wesrs it to court. It also looks like his chubby girlfriend could use a few years in jail on a bread and water diet.

He would have no inkling that some Thais might find the shirt offensive, and if he did, wouldn't care. Same as backpackers who shove their feet in peoples faces on buses and trains.

I don't think he was referring; “I’ve been an idiot” to the deed itself. He probably regrets being caught so quickly and easily.

 

That Shirt looks like a vest to me and that Canadian lass has her cap on back to front. They are saying - f00k you - with their dress and sorry with their words. A few years in the monkey will just give him, and her, extra bragging rights when they get older telling life-experiences to their grandchildren.

 

Just get them to do a bit of litter-gathering and send them away. A bit of paint on an old wall is nothing that can't be sorted out.

 

Ah yes!! Backpackers!! At least they have clean feet.

It might be in the minority to say,but i think they will go a little easy on him.

Ok hes not the full quid

but some should be glad they werent born like this or have a kid like him.

 

And it sounds like the graffiti was able to be cleaned so no great lasting damage.

 

would be different if it could not be cleaned off tho

Leave him alone. If he didn't do it, thousands of people would have nothing to talk about this week.

Chiang Mai needs a graffitti cleanup in general.

 

I was really struck by this - it's important when graffitti goes up to clean it off asap.

Otherwise - at least in the US but I imagine it goes on all over - other groups will add to it. Often, it's different groups or gangs and they compete to "tag" as much as they can. So the rival group sees it and covers it with more grafitti.

 

It's especially striking seeing businesses with graffitti on the corners of their building or on objects in front of their business.

So now their business looks like it's part of a slum, even if the storefront otherwise looks ok.

And the business owners ignore it.

 

 

 

I like CM a great deal, but the graffitti adds a lot of unnecessary ugliness to the landscape.

 

The city is rife with graffitti and really needs a cleanup badly.

Hummm.  Young Brits don't produce testosterone any longer.  This 'man' looks like a pre-pubescent teen with the mentality to go along with the look.

i think that,s the one who is supposed to be a girl

If they paint over it though , it just makes a blank canvass for the next vandal with a can of paint

To be able to raise the money, book a flight and accommodation, can't be too retarded.
