they are addressing the issue! you mean the same way they are addressing the annual flooding in bangkok? this is 2017. i first got here in 1969. they did not have it then and they don't have it now. if it was not for the female medical examiner "porntip" a thai millionare would have gotten away with murder. but she brought in an American forensic expert who proved the Police wrong.

 

 

Again, that is actually a different issue, the issue I was talking of them addressing is the lack if training of field medical staff in filling out death certificates, 7 years ago 40% being filled in wrongly, now it is a lot less.

This topic has been a bit of a let-down, I was expecting much more entertaining posts. As Thailand is on most people's bucket list then surely it follows that more are therefore more likely to kick the bucket whilst messing with a bucket than say somewhere less inclined to have buckets in abundance. Therefore sandy beaches can be dangerous, or statistically more dangerous than say, a snowy hill. That isn't even accounting for the spade ! Kho Tao is a good example of this.

There are lies, damned lies and then there are statistics. Statistically speaking it is probably more likely than less (by approx. 9 out of 10 cats) that the statistics realistically represent nothing. For instance is dropping from a Balcony a natural cause, manslaughter, a suicide or an accident? If you are involved in a vehicular crash and the other driver has no licence, is it not therefore manslaughter? (This would cause a massive shift to the figures in Thailand).

The only really true thing, if you believe consular members can count is that in Thailand, in a given time period a certain number of people in certain specified age group met their maker.

You can gather from this that if you are older than 50 perhaps its a good time to obtain a respect for buckets and come down with a strong case of Kouvaphobia. If younger and more attractive then Khotaophobia could actually get you living long enough to enjoy Kouvaphobia at a riper age.

 

Yep , that is it in a nutshell.  More folk kick the bucket on a sandy beach than do on a snowy hill.

 

Moving on ............................................

Like having a shower?

Like relax on a sunbed under a umbrella and go for a swim in nice clean water with no turds floating about.

 

Sunshine they can do that back home but without the heat of the sun and corruption or queuing at the airport and being overcharged 10x or turd avoidance strats.

People come here thinking they can do things here they would never try to do back home.

Yeah, who wants to die at home when you can go to Thailand to die?
