Thais, in second place for reading?
Apart see somnolés position of "lotus" or eating their bowl of rice, I've never seen a book.
Ah, yes! the tablet.
Come on, is rectified:

Discovered?

This solution is at least as old as my grandmother.

Flour, gipsum and water keeps mice at bay.

Tomorrow, some clever Thai kid will discover America.

That won't work my T-shirt bought in a native American reservation says: 1492 the year we discovered Columbus.

anyone know where to get borax in Thailand, I've asked around many folks say its banned here because food manufacturers like to add it to meat balls.

It's not banned but you'll have to show ID and be asked why you want to buy it.

I had a mosquito biologist staying with me who told me he used to have problems buying it until the store trusted him.

I had a slight but persistent small bodied roach problem for months and tried everything I could find in the local stores to get rid of them and nothing worked, after doing some extensive research I decided to mail order "Advion" gel bait as I couldn't source it in Thailand, it arrived in 4x syringe type tubes and cost about $20

I placed about five spots of the stuff in strategic places - a quantity in total equal to the amount of toothpaste you would use to brush your teeth, this was about 2 months ago and within one week they were completely gone and have never come back, when I placed the stuff I checked now and again and actually witnessed the roaches filling their faces, they then go back to the nest and die and other roaches then eat the dead and die also, it is extremely effective

I still have near enough 4x full tubes of the stuff unused.

Hi Smedly, if you are in Bangkok, maybe I could purches 2 tubes? Pvt. Msg pls.

...available via ebay from Korea, search for Indoxacarb

You gotta give the kid some credit.

Even if its known elsewhere as an old fashion solution, it may not be the case in Thailand, where the rest of the world is not relevant...

Good for you ...

You're not really fair to a young Thai student, now. Honestly speaking it's a nice way to get rid off these creatures.

And your last sentence is Thai bashing. My family and friends are Thai. I hope you're not living here with your grandmother.

How is the last sentence Thai bashing? I'm just curious

Now we have to know what kind of books: comics, halloween, the Koran, Thomas Mann? Very telling this statistic.

Jenjira is a girl's name.

Sometimes it is hard to tell the real sex here.

I've never had a problem.

Is there some incident you wish to share?

There are recipes similar to this all over the Internet. Cement is the key ingredient. Ovaltine is also mentioned. It sounds like the student merely copied someone's idea and simply replaced some of the ingredients.

So we are giving a commendation to a student for copying what anyone could get off the internet simply by typing in "Kill Cockroaches"?

Is he the son of that doctor who found the cure for Ebola?
