Did the Robin not have 'Trans Independent Traders London- Paris - New York' on the side?

And I am counting on some emotional and spiritual evolution within myself. Have to be able to give myself some credit, here and there. Life goes on. I found a great woman. Not feeling any need to trade her in for a new model. I am where I need to be. 

Ok, thanks for clarifying that, so you agree with me, that in the end we are all, without exception, destined to wake up next to a crumpled and aesthetically offensive face. There is no escape. Only delay. We can't give up on a woman, just because her beauty evaporates like water on hot asphalt. We are all doomed to live with ugliness.

 

I just wanted to see if I had that right.

I used to have a Reliant Robin, my first car which I drove on a m/c license.

I don't believe it, you are just trying to big it up, you really drove a Transam

WHERE  are the moderators when you need them ?   I have always suspected that I am on

the "special list ".   When I send a post the bells ring and they are awakened immediately   555

But,  this is not about me 🙂      This bloody thread has turned into some kind of vendetta

against Yinn .   I mean, one or two comments, ok,  but it really has gone beyond that and the

main protagonists have really shown a level of immaturity that even makes me blush.

I know perfectly well, since there was a time i had a major disagreement with her......  sometimes she

is not an easy person to have a dialogue with.   But,  she is 27 ,  and basically standing up to some attacks which she feels are thai bashing.  Sometimes i agree, sometimes not.

But the "adults" ,  3 or 4 of them here,  that are having a kick at trashing her are .... if i can borrow her thoughts...... just being stupid .   Grow up boys,  and move on to other subjects.

Well said Rumak - they are like a group of old women have a whinge about someone who is not there.

Bangkok was designed for less than <1,000,000 cars. There are now at least 5 to 6 x that many.

 

The government, in all their populous wisdom, came up with things like the First Time Car buying program so every Thai can own a car whether they could afford it or not.

 

Now when they came up with this program, how much thought do you think was given to over-crowded roads and air pollution? None!

 

Now if the gov't did something dastardly like followed Singapore and said to those 6,000,000 car drivers in Bangkok, we are only going to allow 750,000 license plates every year, what do you think those other 5 million drivers that own a car and didn't get a plate would do?

 

The government has a solution but would never dare to implement it at the rath of the people and becoming unpopular. So the action is do nothing.

 

This is exactly how Thailand works.

 

Politicians do not get into politics to help the people. It takes lots of money, to have lots of power, to remain in power. Therefore 100% of their efforts center on corruption and making money for their own pockets to buy the power to remain in charge.

 

Every once in a blue moon the population will question the gov't, fake bomb scanners, airship blimps, one deputy having $2 million dollars of watches, but the govt is quick to beat down the uneducated populous with explanations like "I borrowed these watches from a friend"

 

The uneducated populous falling for explanations that using water guns on the ground will disperse air pollution in a city the size of Bangkok.

 

Mega-projects with China for more rail? Do you not think the Ministry of Transportation is making a killing on corruption. Corruption is more important than quality or safety.

 

And the trend goes on and on and on, and none of the problems Thailand is facing get resolved.

 

Because Thai people are use to this behavior and do not question the stupidity of the answers they receive.

 

Those in power, have enough money to move and live very rich in any country they chose.

 

 

 

 

Yes, the "Do nothing" gene is very strong in South-East Asia, but particularly in Thailand.

 

Imagine what this place could be like if all the various problems were addressed.

 

Close to perfection on earth.

I'm expecting to die before my current one reaches the 'offensive face' stage.

My Brit wife was the only one that got near ...... and she was 50 years old when I left.

50, that sounds rough man.

 

I suppose that is one way to solve the problem, though you'd have to get a woman that's 40 years younger if you're 75 and she's 35. 

 

If you live any longer than 75 you're really screwed. What if you're 85 and she's 45 and your'e still alive?

 

But what kind of 35 year old woman would hook up with a 75 year old? Would you have that beautiful connection spidermike is talking about?

I don't know anyone that's made it past 70 in Thailand.

I'm not expecting to be different.

Not by much no, life expectancy in Thailand is 71.8 for men.

 

But you have those European genes. 

 

Look to your grandparents.

Dead in their 60s, and my parents.

White folk don't seem to last long in the tropics either.

If I make it another 3 months,  i will hit that milestone.   Still going strong,  not on any

meds except an eye drop daily.    Definitely not overweight.   And still sexy .

Some young girl even called me "pee"  the other day.   Then i turned around   555
