Re: Pay 1% more in VAT, PM asks Thais

Canceling silly stuff like the subs and Chinese tanks makes sense as the only threat to peace around here is China. Adding 1% to VAT is fine too as you should be taxed on what you spend, not what you earn. And if you are silly rich then you should be taxed at base more. Unfortunately, this society ...

I find it slightly ironic that atheists never do anything destructive in the name of 'nothingness.'

You are eventually going to die. And since you only live once i do eat what i feel like and hungry for.
the point is not that you are going to die but how well you live until then. regardless of how long I live i would trade healthy food and a healthy life for unhealthy food and sickness.

Re: Finance advice - investment accounts in Thailand

open an investment acct. in the u.s. and do a monthly transfer, via Bangkok bank u.s. to Bangkok bank Thailand. it's about $35 per transfer. if you can do it less than monthly then you'll save some money. do not invest in Thailand it's a black hole.

Maybe better than McDonalds because they still have not learned how to make a decent burger, but I would much rather have KFC and a large beer instead of vegetables and spring water...
