Ever got that close to them? If not, give it a try!

Yep, once on a long flight I experienced this scenario... no Police or Immigration points to complain...hence sat through out till the end of journey.

You allowed a smelly shirtless guy to sit beside you in a plane?? If that was me, I would tell him to get a shirt on or the rest of his journey would be hell, and mean it.

"Sanook said that the arrest of the Myanmar nationals was as a direct result of their body odor."

Using Sanook as a reliable source of facts is a dangerous game...

I am a nobody, but I know that at times unscrupulous employers of illegal labor will use their labor, promise to pay once they reach another job sight, then called the authorities who setup a stop and then detain and return to them to their country of origin, without ever being paid. 

 

I feel for all involved, the authorities are being used, the bus company is being used, and other passengers are being used.  This is a vicious cycle, used over and over.  It's terrible travesty of justices.

They and I were going to the airport. What is the noun you have omitted after Pakistani's? 

I have not omitted anything, just pointed on how you knew they were Pakistani's as by their appearance  - by assumption or otherwise?

 

Since you used a proper noun it should not be any assumption involved and to state they were Pakistani's it's difficult if not impossible only by their appearance so then we are left with otherwise ... :thumbsup:

Nor surprised, considering what they eat. ...Fermented snakes, insects, god knows what. Then again, garlic is pretty bad, the next day when it comes out the skin.

I was complimented for being so clean.  My GF actually bragged to her relatives about how many showers I took. How incredibly bizarre.

Unfortunately being clean, smelling good and the number of showers are (sometime) unrelated

Burmese workers are the hardest working people in Thailand. They do alot of the work that most Thais will not do. Without complaint. They deserve some respect. Thailand is moving backwards and the fear of outsiders of one of its greatest weaknesses at this point in time. 

 

Guys like the biggest joke and Prayuth do their nation a tremendous disservice with their nationalistic diatribes and nonsense. Thailand must figure out a way to move on without the hapless guidance of these incompetents. Their ignorance is encouraging others to act foolish. Much the same as Trumps constant hateful rhetoric is emboldening the racists in the US.

They do this for political purposes basically point to the foreigners while the elite plunder.
