Re: Shark Attack - Had Sai Noi

Interesting they are taking serious (on paper anyway) steps to prevent any future taste tests. Though personally, I'd rather see them build a platform over the area, so people can marvel at the lovely creatures. Oh well ........ good to keep jellies away, maybe. At least they pulled their heads out ...

Re: Snakes in the house and garden

Knowing all are not poisonous, and knowing exactly what they all look like, and can tell them apart is a different story. Unless a cobra is up and hooded, it looks like every other dark snake. Except for Kraits, they all look the same to me, except the green one with antennas....555 So for my daught...

Re: Shark Attack - Had Sai Noi

Yes, most shark bites are in shallow water, and close to shore. I guess Thai officials never watch 'shark week', or saw clips of Orcas taking seals off the beach ..... 555 They'll never admit they got sharks cruising the coastline 24 / 7. Anyone thinking otherwise..........well, is an idiot. Size, t...

Re: Shark Attack - Had Sai Noi

Wind was about the same, guessing, but tide may have changed, maybe from ebb to out, and beach is shallower at Ao Manoa, which should actually help with vis. Just surprised me, and don't care to swim in water I can't see my feet at chest height. Bit paranoid about jellies at times. Sharks I'd welcom...

Re: Shark Attack - Had Sai Noi

Yes, it is strange how some is crystal clear, when close by isn't quite as, or not at all. South end of main HH beach at Buddha is consistently clear, where at Centara, almost opaque....555 Morning stroll with dog is at Ao Prachaup, as sewer for the municipality, and if clear there, then I might pop...

Re: Shark Attack - Had Sai Noi

At least pulling their heads out of the coral, and confirming it was a bite. Bet the doc will never lie for the authorities again. A shark bite is a good thing, well, not for his foot. But should be a tourist attraction now. Expecting a sign and admission fee soon.......555 Considering how many peop...

Re: Massive exodus from Bangkok - 7 deadly days of Songkran begin

Good for a headliner I guess, as 420 over 7 days is about the average of 60 a day, on any given day, give or take. Simply matching the daily average of every day in Thailand.

Re: Shark Attack - Had Sai Noi

I'm guessing, just an oops on the shark's part. As a wee bit too small to be thinking about eating an adult human. Need to be a wee bit bigger, or in a pack to think about munching on something that big. A few of these circling in open water would be more of a concern .... 555 https://s18.postimg.cc...

Re: Shark Attack - Had Sai Noi

It's salt water, there's sharks in it. Only an idiot would believe otherwise. Some even don't mind fresh water, and Bull shark is notorious for that, and a nasty bugger. One to give a wide berth to if seeing. Bull shark a good suspect for a taste test, unless just an oops, sorry, not food, didn't kn...

Re: Which car would you feel safest in Thailand

Since I've never needed even a seat belt, let alone an airbag, in my 45+ yrs of driving, I guess I feel pretty safe in my present, overpriced, POS, Mazda2 sedan. TBO, has served me very well, along with the previously one, and the 2 T. Vios s that I've had since living here. Entry level crap here is...
