  1. Except, of course, the Louvre and Eiffel Tower have been open for months.
  2. It is a misnomer as it is an International Driver Permit - and there are 3 types (1926, 1949 and 1968), some last one year, some last 3. For Thailand (and Laos, Cambodia) a 1949 type is required. Vietnam and Burma require a 1968 type. Of course, this is just the letter of the law so is not really relevant in Thailand.... This is what they look like...
  3. Krugerrands are 91.6% pure. They weigh 33.93g of which 31.103g is pure gold. (22ct) - 31.103g = 1 troy oz Maples are 99.9% pure. They weigh 31.1035g of which 31.103g is pure gold. (24ct) US Eagles are 22ct. US Buffalos are 24ct Chinese Pandas are 24ct but only weigh 30g - slightly less than a troy oz. Thai gold is usually 22ct (91.6%) or 23ct (96.5%)
  4. DVBT2 can use mpeg2, mpeg4, h264, h265 and others. Depends what the station is putting out. DVB is a telecommunication tv standard and there is a satellite tv standard DVBS2.
  5. I have some terrible news. Fire stick works on the HDMI socket...
  6. I've filed the information right next to the ivermectin file in the Snake Oil department...
  7. Remarkable that Thailand open up to the UK as a 'low risk' country just as Morocco ban all flights to and from the UK as the infection rate in the UK is so high (445 per 100K compared to Morocco's 10 per 100K) https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-58981507
  8. Check the figures for Israel and Mongolia. Infections in both places are plummeting down. Check 'Daily new cases' .... https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/mongolia/ https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/israel/
  9. Its doable but it will require the invention of the rapid PCR test. The 15 minute tests are lateral flow tests. There is no 'rapid' PCR test as they need to be analysed in a lab.
  10. Yes, let's look at Israel, Infections are FALLING and they are NOT locking down. https://www.reuters.com/world/middle-east/with-boosters-masks-green-pass-israel-sees-covid-19-wave-retreat-2021-10-15/
  11. I think you may need to renew your history recall. There was never a time when Attlee was UK PM and Eisenhower was POTUS. Attlee was voted out 1950, Eisenhower did not get in until 1952. And you had to put 4 pennies in. The 3 penny boxes (STD) were introduced much later and had no Button A. Are you sure you renewed? Best check......
  12. Err... just one thing.... If the first named 'Whisky a gogo' bar opened 'n 1947, how did they get the name from a film that wasn't released until 1949?
