  1. This violation is noted in the Thai driver video, but it is the most common violation here particularly with motorbikes over or undertaking 200-300 from an intersection isn't allowed!
  2. First although it has started it must be done 24/7 and not during a few hours! Movement of migrant workers must be stopped the measure must be much stricter than a slap on the wrist. Those caught their project will be close down and a massive fine 1 million baht minimum for start. If it is being done by contractors who have contracts with the government the contract should be voided, fined and the company seize under the Emergency Act government official in charge of these project need to make sure the rules are being followed if not they are to be removed ASAP personally I don't care who the
  3. First, Media Headlines? can you confirm that is how I came to my opinion? funny people say stuff like this then quote to others exactly what they are criticizing others! WWW. CNBC I read the article I think you would get lots of debate from medical researcher from the Health Minister of Israel regarding these numbers it isn't past on trials etc. it is just his opinion from results in this one country if it was a stand alone only country in the world you might have something but you done. Is cnbc not part of the media?
  4. For the record there is a sign outside taped to the sliding doors! I was there to be honest I had no idea why the staff was trying to a please the individual I'm not sure anyone ever called the police on Soi 9, but no one show up the manager should have told the individual to take it outside and don't return unless he wears a mask to be serve orders needed to be taken I was lucky to get my order in before it got really heated it never should have gotten that far I'm retired otherwise I would have taken charge now if my 5 supreme Tacos were free it would have been a different outcome for sure.
  5. The conclusion from my reading of the science of course anyone guess but not heard you have a 90% chance of getting infected but the correct word being thrown around today is " Breakout Cases " which is rare based on the millions already vaccination it has been reported the more vaccination the numbers will go up it is all part of the course. Here is the big difference what I'm reading from the science that if you are fully vaccinated the chance of you dying or being hospitalize is minimum. If and went I do get vaccinated whether I'm here or at home I plan to wear a mask and follow the
  6. Go ahead I know you are just dying to use that word don't be shy you'll feel much better after.
  7. Just go to Thai T.V. Channel 3, each evening and you will get more than you bargain. There is a saying I have living here " Monkey see Monkey do "
  8. I was there one or two behind him as soon as something was said, I sidestepped away seen it a million times back home growing up at my age I felt it was my opportunity to jump ahead and ordered 5 taco supreme and got a seat to listen to all the " <deleted>> " this <deleted>> that " being lock down here unable to return home since I not want to go through all the hoops to get back in I've been a bit homesick but after a few minutes of listening I had no longer had that feeling. I also agree that when it comes to farang whenever they get a chance to make us look b
  9. It isn't going to happen not in my life time because the people are so condition as just part of doing business! Ten years or close I read an article in the BK Post that the country loses 200 Billion a year due to their leaders corruption one has to wonder what is it today? In a survey Thai people feel a bit of corruption is good for the country paying graft for doing business is just part of doing business in this country as long as it is acceptable by citizens that are brainwashed and accept it these old swamp dogs will continue doing what they do best and past it down to their children.
  10. I think these test are being pushed because the system is overwhelmed, panic has developed Thais are rushing down to get tested even when they don't have symptoms then there is the panic someone walks into a mall visit a particular store they are infected now everyone who entered the mall during the day is being called down for test 3 days later retest. Since this 3rd wave the wife has been call a half dozen times although I was with her each time being a foreign told that we get treated equally I've not been called.
  11. I think there are a number of reason, the delay was so they could push for the AZ as the main vaccine to be issue but the problem they couldn't meet production isn't that a big surprise? Then the delay was most likely to make sure those at the top got enough of a cut from the deal? OAG just happen to be the scrape goat of the day. Then you got an article they couldn't sign the deal because the government didn't have the funds available to sign thus the reason they ask the private hospital to take money up front. The photo op is shameful how does one screw things u
  12. You might want to change your handle from Confuscious to Confusion because your post doesn't make a lot of sense to me and what seem to be for lot of others. If you don't actually live at the Embassy it is unwise to be using their address since Embassy aren't in the habit of receiving mail for their citizen are you expecting to receive a warrant from your country depending on the charges there is something major you have left out in your original post. For example if you are being charged for murder and you think you can have the case heard here you are really confused!
  13. Yes there are problems in the West everywhere but it isn't because of the lack of vaccine it is the abundance of freedom! Freedom is good but there are times Freedom hinters progress because every John and Jane Doe think they know more than the next person I'm not taking sides just stirring the pot but everything I'm reading is those being infected now in the West particularly in the U.S. are the ones who have chosen not to be vaccinated? When it comes to vaccines in Thailand, they put all their eggs with the Chinese vaccine, then AZ on the surface to monopolize the market and ge
  14. The government is so top heavy it wouldn't be hard to just pull one of the crowd on any given day and say you have a nice head of hair nicely dye monthly and pull their string as to what needs to be said today. Several years ago I read an article from a MP and a survey followed thereafter that telling a white lie can be good for people that goes allow with apologizing it gives people the sense that the government is on top of the situation so down worry sit back thus the saying " mai pen rai "
  15. I run around all day here in Pattaya, like you I've not seen or heard of free except at Banglamung and that is for Thai 2 months ago took the wife down as you noted it is a mad house the lady ask if I needed to be tested once she realize I wasn't Thai told me I had to pay. I've not seen a booth or truck in Pattaya offering this service but out here on the Darkside at one of the market a month ago was offering testing at a market. But you can get a test quickly done with result at BPH for 3500 baht. Personally, I'm not a big fan of the contact tracing if the person haven't shown a
  16. One thing I'm not going to do is lay down and take up the behind! if criticism is one of my choices on this board then that is what it is going to be.
  17. Using that button you give him too much credit, only someone who is blind or S actually believe in this statement if it was true we wouldn't have the problems that Thailand has now! " let them do their job " maybe all the smoke articles coming out of their leaders got him brainwashed?
  18. I read there was something like 5000 expats? I suspect since U.S. doesn't do a lot of oversight when they give something away their typical diplomatic way " oldest friend " who now have their heads up the butts of the CCP the greedy Thai government most likely will sell the doses after they all get their boosters to the private hospitals. I'm not crossing my fingers but maybe the last minute they might made an announcement to register and off to Bang Sue for the last minute Sunday shot?
  19. Take the biggest box or two you have break down the other boxes or cardboard and put them inside. Find a outside garbage can usually blue or yellow set it outside morning it will be gone. Of course this is rainy season so don't do it when it rains.
  20. So many bad decisions what could go wrong went wrong now get a mirror for the guy so he can meet the person responsible.
  21. You want to use patience but when a child or person just don't or won't stop opening their big mouth spilling nonsense daily you might resort to means one just doesn't like! Where is the duck tape?
  22. Waste of time and money but not for the muni boys who will use this project and milk it for all it worth, as soon as the first major storm comes what was spent will end up in the ocean. You can't laid larger pipes to contain rain water then have them lead all the way to the ocean. All those Sukumvit center island storm drain lead down to just the beach!
  23. If that is the case an island somewhere if not then freedom comes at a price for them PAY UP!
