Let sleeping dogs lie. Don't pet soi dogs. If it's not your dog leave it alone.

Re: Electric Cars

What will happen when the taxi drivers forget to charge the battery and the car stalls before you reach your destination?

Re: Electric Cars

Why would I want to pay 150 bht for the first 2 km, rather than 35 bht?

Can I ask another question? 2 outs, runner on third. Batter hits into outfield, it is fielded and he throws to first where a play is made--BUT the runner from 3rd crosses the plate before the out is made at first--Does he score?
Yes. He reached home plate before the out.

Intrigued, I read the explanation, and finished up more confused than ever. I`ll stick to cricket, much easier to understand
Easier to understand because you probably grew up with cricket and possibly played the game. For someone, me, never exposed to cricket it makes no sense at all.

Re: VIP - Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2018 - Top Secret DrumCorps

That's some serious shite!!!!!
Thank you for posting.
The difference between when I played in drum corps and now is like a single engine plane compared to a jet. The technical development is astounding.

If you want to hear where Aretha's heart was listen to the Amazing Grace album. Regardless of your religious or non- religious feelings this is the real deal.

Re: Renew US Passport by Mail

Yes, works fine, and I've never had a problem with ThaiPost, and excellent service. You could alway opt to pick up at Embassy. The Thai Post Office has "lost" a package from the US, delivered another one to the wrong address that ended up in customs and 100+km drive to pick it up in Petchaburi with...

Re: Borderless Account of Transferwise

Get a Schwab account and never pay for transfers again. Every source I've read said you must be in the US to open an account. IIRC you also need a current proof of address such as a utility bill. You are correct. You must have a US address to change anything in US banking. I couldn't even add my wi...
