Re: Bees nest

They have to be (no pun intended) smoked out. They can be overcome with smoke, then they become lethargic and can be transported elsewhere. Best done by a pro.

Re: Water Guns Banned During Songkran

Songkran originated in Yunan, China, where it's still celebrated quite freely and raucously.

Re: Global Warming 2

It means avoiding something one ought to do. At least that's the definition available on the internet. If you don't agree with that you're free to invent one that you like. Are you an American, snideness seems to be an American trait.

Re: 80 foreigners arrested in nationwide crackdown on schools and teachers

a photo copy of your passport and visa can be folded up and carried quite easily. I keep a copy in the car.

If your white and living in England it's no surprise that you were never stopped, you looked like a native.

Re: Hua Hin dual-track rail project to go ahead

That would certainly improve the safety factor at Soi 56 and help keep the traffic moving.

Re: "Riviera Thailand"

To match the Riviera they'll have to bring in a lot of pebbles to cover the beach, outfit the local girls in bikinis, and have a nude section. A 20 yr. plan eh? That should be enough time to shelve it after spending millions of baht to develop the plan.

Re: Global Warming 2

Of course climate change is real, everyday, everywhere the climate changes and has since before the beginning of time. The question is; is the climate changing for the worse and if so how and are humans and their activities a major cause? Is this even knowable? I can't imagine, nor do I want to kno...

Re: Elections delayed again, PM denies involvement

You really do. God only knows what the consequences will be if they are postponed indefinitely and the Country moves into full totalitarian mode. Being that "they" can do anything they want now, I don't know how much different it would be. Maybe expelling all the foreigners is a possibility. That m...

Re: Elections delayed again, PM denies involvement

It worked for Mao, Stalin & Castro. Their particular regimes came to an end but have been revived by Putin, Xi and the ghost of Fidel is still lurking over Cuba. History may indeed bring an end to them but history can take a long time. I agree about the younger Thais getting restless. My youngest da...
