  1. Sadly it is not just the foods.... Ever notice how many cancer patients in many rural farming villages? Ever notice how shallow the ground water wells are in those villages? My SIL next door...her well water surface is probably 6-8 feet/2-3 meters max from surface So pretty much any poisons used on crops perk down into the ground water Add to that things like the nice fogging that goes on many village streets to control mosquitoes etc etc Last but not least the yearly air pollution months & well you have a quite unhealthy life...but
  2. Yeah for sure...sometimes my sister & I would talk/imagine what it was going to be like in the year 2000 Maybe like the Jetsons with flying cars etc
  3. Yes I can imagine...I think you might find that often these days in many countries....Like Thailand for example & the hassle with US citizens opening bank accounts sometimes. I think it is more a result of other countries hassling countries that were once considered neutral/safe havens etc to alert them to xx citizens stashing cash etc
  4. I think as long as they require insurance, COE, Covid tests and vaccines it will be a failure. They should follow with other major countries & allow fully vaccinated entry with just a preflight test in their home country Anything more will not likely be tolerated by visitors. Of course those who need to travel due to family etc will always travel as will the sexpats of course
  5. The private hospitals are very nice & prices although creeping up to match the west are still lower at this time I actually find the private hospitals cleaner than their western counterparts & the staff surely more polite & gentle/caring BUT........While great for testing etc anything major should have a second opinion & even a third out of Thailand if possible I hate to say this but in my own experience Thai hospitals are like all other Thai businesses...They see a westerner & they do attempt to take advantage. I was actually told I need a
  6. 555 Anything is possible right? You know how JF Kennedy's father made a killing in the 1929 stock markets? He was having his shoes shined one day as was the fashion back then you sat up high on a perch & read the paper while the shoeshine guy shined your shoes Well the shoe shine guy knew Mr Kennedy was a high roller in the markets & said to him he was also now investing & his friends were too & had some tips to share Well Joe knew it was time to exit the markets then & there because everyone was agreeing it only had one place to go.
  7. Granted that Man was a POS but...to tar the whole foreign resident base with that brush ? Meanwhile how many white tourist women have been raped or killed by Thai men especially on the islands like Koh Tao ?? What form of tracking was added to fit those profiles?
  8. All that cop saw was 200 baht trying to float past So forget safety Forget your post directing traffic Go get that Baht
  9. Yes agree Govt pooched it when they early on were declining many vac offers But about families returning upcountry with covid it will not be because of fully vac'ed tourists as Phuket Sandbox showed Less than 1% were tourist infections Mainly all were Thai's coming back to work infecting each other For better or worse Covid has been strong & spreading since 2019-2020 in Thailand too regardless of the fairy tales they told. They just never tested till 2021 in any meaningful way. So it is well entrenched throughout Thailand already Bu
  10. They need to focus........... Why are they even asking this? Why even worried about testing fully vaccinated arrivals? Did they learn nothing at all from their Phuket Sand box? It was not the arrivals that were spiking the Covid cases it was all the un-vaccinated Thai locals returning to work infecting each other They need to instead focus on increasing their own vaccination rates not worry about fully vaccinated arrivals & how they will test them yet again
  11. Sounds great ....for you On the other hand you may in fact become a prime target if the Thai population descends into chaos due to lack of income, hope etc etc But lastly I do think Thailand should of course first have its own house in order before inviting guests Because as the Sandbox showed it was not the tourist who were getting sick (less than 1%) But instead the locals that all came back to work to service tourists were actually infecting each other
  12. I know right? I mean as a previous owner of a nice condo in Chiang Mai I was surprised by that article too. I just assumed many US citizens owned condos in Thailand as the price was so affordable in comparison
  13. Beats me but gold & more so silver allowed me to retire in 2012 at the ripe old age of 56 No debt, never worked again, so if someone knows what goes where & why they may do just fine thanks It is not about just buying something but understanding the G/S ratio & how to play it That aside again everyone is free to buy what they want & put their money where they want. But to assume something based on your obvious wealth of no idea is a bit embarrassing....for you For those in & hopefully out of cyber coins hopefully you did well &
