Have fun and then come back and report how exciting it is to have water thrown at you.From just another oddball.

After 20 years, it is a lot more boring than fun, but the Thais did not beg for me to come live here, so I try to put up with their customs and keep the moaning to a minimum. :D

I think the OP might have just informed the uninformed tourists of their premature ejac......... I mean songkran holiday and how it's not appropriate as they may not have known..

It seems unusual that the Thai they choose was able to communicate that clearly with the tourists..

Ever notice that the worst offenders are those that have been marginalized in life? Ugly, or morbidly obese, or failures in love, business , school; just a big sorry collection of losers.

Just about sums up the average farang in Thailand, I would say. :rolleyes:

Personally I think that all water-throwers that are over the age of 10 should be humanely put down. They are nothing but a nuisance, like soi dogs, and about as intelligent.

Of, if they must be tolerated, they should be confined to specific streets by armed police, with orders to shoot at will if needed.

I've been to La Tomatina in Spain and its great, but old people usually stay indoors out of the mayhem, if not, they're fair game, old Farangs that venture out during Songkhran are also fair game.

And don't come out with how things should be, look at how things actually ARE !!! If you don't like it, do something about it, but for Christ sake stop F'ing moaning !!!!

Can you imagine a meeting of ThaiVisa members being a fun gathering ? LOL, the way this forum is with all the complaining it would be the last place I would want to be, a load of old miserable men wondering why Thailand doesn't conform to their specifications, keep all the things they like but stop everything else, yeah right, that's why they came to Thailand in the first place, cos it was the same as back home ! Haha. ( Thais would be as Miserable as you if it was like Back Home !!!! )

Euthanasia should never be against the law, cos if getting old makes you so miserable, I don't wanna ever get old.

Can all the moaners imagine moaning about Songkhran when they were young ?

Spooky.

I have the best time during Songkran. It is crazy fun in Chanthaburi. I guess that guy the OP saw didn't enjoy having a good time.

Songkhran is one of the worlds great festivals, but old miserable Farangs should be banned, or they should ban themselves. rolleyes.gif

I went to an open air concert to see AC/DC, it was great, we got soaked cos it rained all day, there was piss bottle fights, fruit fights, and anything goes fights laugh.gif, it was great, and when AC/DC came on about 10.30pm the place went wild, nobody cared that we had been waiting for hours, nobody cared that we were soaked, it was electric, we were young and we were having a great time.

There were even some old people in the crowd, and they had a blast too.

How many days last Songkran? I never figured it out since I am never in Thailand during this period! :)

Pattaya is from the 12-13th to the 19th, (the 19th being the main day) at around 6pm, many places finish on the 15th, official days are 13th , 14th, 15th.

Pattaya is a well known and a much loved or a much moaned about Festival, depends on how you look at it . biggrin.gif

This thread is about dunking people OUTSIDE Songkran.

Personally, I have a ball during Songkran, so I dont want you to get me wrong here, but dunking someone outside Songkran is in my opinion equal to showing up in the audience at a boxing gala and floor the person standing next to you with the following excuse:

"Dooooooh....you are at a boxing gala, aren't you, you have to be prepared to get smacked....doooohhh...eeehhh......dooooohh...."

Pouring water over anyone at any time is common assault, but since it is part of Thai childish culture one has to accept it during the authorised days. However if one is "assaulted" at other times, I consider it fair to take suitable action against the aggressor! This should not be physical violence against the person, but I see no reason why the offending weapon should not be rendered inoperable. :D

the question is how to react when this happens to one self?

I believe it calls for one penalty stroke, so depending on what the par was on that hole you could be looking at bogey, at least.

:rolleyes:mario299

Mario, you completely forgot about the water hazard :D
