Yinn, you’ve transliterated ‘special’... what Spidermike is getting at with ‘special’ is also referred to as the ‘little prince syndrome’.   Many of us have witnessed this in Thailand (and m

Loss of face over a washing line?    Whatever next for these small minded individuals?  

Well, I guess that argument was settled. What can one say? There are an awful lot of people here who have not developed sufficiently, on an emotional level. Especially a portion of Thai men. It has al

Looks from the video that this is the onlyl guy using the street to hang his laundry. I'd imagine it had something to do with face.

I don't think I've ever lived in a soi in Thailand where several people don't do the same. Even my wife did it when we lived in a small house. Normal practice here.

I just saw the youtube clip that Andrew Dwyer put up. Absolutely shocking. Pure rage, and murder. I hope that guy goes away a long time, but probably won't.

Definately brake failure. 555

Were the 2 boys in the car when he hit his neighbor, and then drove them to football practice???

Perhaps he was a "linesman" (now assistant referee) at the football match. RIP the victim.

Nobody and I repeat nobody in the "real world" would even consider murdering anyone, or driving over someone, just because their washing was taking up too much space in the Soi or because their cooking stinks. 

 

Seriously?  It happens every day in the US, UK, Aus... 

 

Maybe not in Canada, but they're so polite they're scary.

 

I rarely see it in the USA because I live in a middle class neighborhood and rarely venture into places where economic desperation frazzles away at exposed nerves.  Pretty hard to avoid those places in a country where most of the people are on subsistence wages.

 

Wanna truly understand it?  Go out every day for 6 months with 50 baht in your pocket, and no ATM card.  Limit your discretionary spending to that 50 baht, like the majority of Thai people.  See how your mood and your priorities change over those 6 months.  Then imagine doing it for 80 years.

It's a question of proportion. shure this happens in every country, but how often?

 

http://worldpopulationreview.com/countries/murder-rate-by-country/

 

Homicides (murders) per 100000 population 2019.:

 

USA = 5.35.

 

Thailand = 3.24.

 

UK (my home country)= 1.2.

 

so it depends who you are talking to. if you are talking to an American, you are right America has more murders per head than Thailand. If you are talking to a Brit, like me, you are wrong, Thailand has almost 3 times the murders as Britain does. We are very gentle, cool headed people. 555

 

Brit = jai yin.

 

 

If you really trust thai crime statistics....

 

In 2016 it was reported that Thailand had around at least 3,000 gun murders = 4.41.

 

If you count in all forms of murder around 4,000 - 4,500 = 5.88 - 6.61.

 

Crime statistics showed that mysteriously murders dropped around 2014, and crime statistics became more less published and or eventually stopped.

AUS population 25 million- 203 murders = 0.80 murder per 100,000 people.

 

UK population 67 million- 726 murders= 1.08 murder per 100,000 people.

 

Canada population 37 million- 651 murders = 1.75 murder per 100,000 people.

 

USA population 325 million- 17,000 murders= 5.23 murder per 100,000 people.

 

TH at least 3,000 gun murders in 2016 = 4.51 murder per 100,000 people, if you all all forms of murder 4,000 - 4,500 murders = 5.88 - 6.61
