Steve, just one single bubble tea in Thailand has more than that... CoCo Fresh Tea & Juice, has 74 grams of sugar per glass

 

We, non-retarded, westerners poses the critical thinking and see when people lie. India with 5 grams? How did they get their massive buts?

If Thais had more ability in critical thinking a lot of women would never have married half the posters on here, think ourselves lucky they don't think too much 😁

One of the posters seems to be getting his knickers in a knot about what critical thinking is.

That's usual these days, everybody takes whatever their favorite term is and starts to evangelize their take on it. You just need to think critically and as Adam Savage said, 'I reject your reality and substitute my own'.

I get the impression that most people commenting on this thread don't actually know what critical thinking is.

All of them appear to be critical of the Thai education system!!

Just about any critic of any education system needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. Combined with a lack of critical thinking most posters appear to believe that they re an "expert" (the word itself is a giveaway) on education. The basis for this seems to be that they went to school. - a false premise if ever there was one.

End of critical thinking. QED.

 

as your premise is unsupportable and too vague.

Not at all, makes me think perhaps your comprehension level is a bit suspect. 😉😛

If you disagree, why not put forward a counter argument and support it with some evidence, rather than an ad hominem comment?

Why don't you make a valid point to counter. 😉 Then I surely will.

A rather vague and generic comment to make, no? Seems to display a distinct lack of critical thinking.

Hardly, it's a premise based on the evidence of the thread backed up with a a considered opinion as to why this should be.

 

It would seem you don't understand or at least recognise the process.

Where would you posit the 'objective analysis and evaluation' of the topic in hand is in the following catch-all statement?

'Just about any critic of any education system needs to be taken with a pinch of salt.' That's your opinion, what c.t. is it based on? It's an opinion in the same way that your opinion of my assessment of universities becoming less effective in their ability to teach critical thinking is. I wouldn't classify it as critical thinking in any meaningful sense.

 

Maybe take a closer look at the sentiments of your own statements before blithely dismissing those of others.
