Is this to be countered with continued ‘Can’t be ars$ed to police the roads’ campaign by the BiB ????

Is Campaign the new buzzword for Thailands 2021.... ‘crackdown’ is so yesterday !...

... I see ‘hub’ also being switched out for ‘focal point’ in Thailand post Covid 5.0...:neus:

Don’t open the curtains, don’t go outside,

stay indoors with the air filters on.

and try to convince yourself and others it’s not that bad and you enjoy living there!🔥🔥🔥🔥😷😷😷😷

living the dream 

 

I have done exactly that, i.e. in the morning I don't open up my curtains in our bedroom which face the open rice fields behind us where all the smoke can be seen. We drive the kids to school and the see the smoke everywhere, we keep the car windows closed and make sure that when the kids arrive at school it's straight to class, no 45 minute wait in assembly for them to breath in the smoke.

 

The principal did complain and we complained straight back, explaining to her our reason and that if that did not fit with the schools policy then we could remove the kids straight away, no need she said $$$$$$$.

 

We get home around 9am and it's starting to clear and before you know it we can open up the house, ahhhh....living the dream, well till about 5pm when everybody starts cooking with their black Eucalyptus charcoal which is toxic, then lighting up sugarcane and rice fields, when you really think about it, it's not that bad, you just have to remember to breath less 🙂

Where do you think the air inside the car comes from ? 555

 

Mostly from our mouths as the HEPA filtration systems takes care of the rest, problem solved.

Depends on where you set the 'outside/recirculate' control doesn't it? 

 

AFAIK all cars have one since the 1960's. I've never seen a car without one. 

 

Most cars are fairly airtight and will literally float for quite a while if windows and vents are closed.

I thought it was 'stop the smoking from cigarettes', I can tolerate the smoke from burning but not from nicotine which is toxic.
