Thai TV started showing plastic bags blurred out

Attempted humor/humour?

I'm not sure what's going on with the guns deal these days on Thai TV.

 

In the past, yes, I recall the showing of guns being pixelated out. But lately, when the Thai wife is watching her lakorns, I'm seeing all kinds of folks pointing and using guns on TV and no pixelation -- cops pointing and shooting, bad guys pointing and shooting.

 

The times recently when I can recall there being pixelation is when someone is pointing the gun at someone as very close range, like directly at their head. And then I get the pixelation. But seemingly not otherwise these days....  Admittedly, however, I'm not an active Thai TV watcher.

Never mind that shifting to cloth and reusable plastic is more damaging to the overall environment.

 

How is using reusable cloth bags (vs. plastic) more damaging to the overall environment?

 

We for quite a long time have been using/reusing our own heavy cloth bags to carry groceries home from the markets. Take them to the stores with us empty, bring them home full. Wash them in the washing machine when needed. Continued to use the same several sturdy bags now for some years....

I was just in Rimping supermarket, Chiang Mai. LOL waiting with my cloth bags at checkout I suddenly notice the famous orange plastic bags GONE! Every Thai with shopping and waiting looked like they had crapped their pants, now they had to buy either small cloth bag 100 baht, larger at 200 baht. Som nam na, Thais!

At least in BKK, a number of the stores lately have been giving out reuseable bags for free as part of various promotions, or offering them at pretty cheap prices.

 

That fine, but generally the cheapies they're giving away or selling at low prices are as expected cheap and probably not going to last very long or hold up to much wear.

 

Of the more durable ones we use at home, I got one quite a few years ago from Air Asia, another from Starbucks, and a third from my wife's office as part of some conference she attended -- all heavy cloth and with strong, well-reinforced handles that can carry a lot and survive repeated use.

Ban single use plastic bags and some think it's the end of the world. Like the Chicken Little story: the sky is falling!  It happened in Australia and some of my friends threw a very large wobbly. So funny. Just buy a reusable bag and remember to take it. And that seems to be the problem, the la-la-la people never remember to bring it and get it a panic about having to pay for a bag again. Man up. Let's hope it cleans up the beaches by 5 or 10%. And that's a big reason that the farang tourists are in decline: some beaches are garbage dumps.

Blurring images of Bags on TV .… so rediculous all I can do is smile and sigh.

 

BTW human beings do illegal stuff all the time .… I think we should also blurr them out on TV .... and maybe even on Radio.

 

.… and there is the use of clothing to blurr out people .… oh wait … didn't I already see that somewhere?
