Re: First execution for 9 years in Thailand

Re: Trouble sleeping after Japanese food

MSG. It is in many Japanese dishes. It can keep you awake, cause headaches and diarrhea. That stuff is everywhere over here. They shovel it in by the spoonful in Thai weetiel (sp) soup and dry, and most all Thai food. The same in HK, China, Singapore etc. If MSG is my problem then everything has to...

What about the people who made the errors, will they be held accountable? Oh, excuse me they were/are government employees.
