Able to watch a movie without stupid censorship. I'm currently watching a movie on True with more than it's share of mindless violence, but when a waiter walked to the table with a bottle of wine, the bottle was pixelated.

A Thai sees nothing wrong with publicly picking their nose.

Thais seem to have no interest in the outside world. This could be mistake in an ever competive world. On the other hand they are unlikely to get involved in foreign wars as we do in the west.

I saw a movie where a guy had a lit pipe in his hand, smoke curling upwards, and that was allowed. When he brought it too his lips they smudged it out. Away from his face and there it was again. 555

Seldom do western women choose to have Thai men as partners or marry them. Whereas many Thai women have western partners and also marry them.

An expat calling themselves expatriates when in fact they are immigrants.

To be honest I would question that, because it is rare for any immigrant to Thailand to gain Thai nationality. But - open to other thoughts.

Before going to Thailand I always imagined that Buddhist were peace loving and kind to all living things. How wrong can you be!
