  1. Minaj is one of the best selling female artists of all time with 100 million records sold worldwide. Forbes has her net worth at $85M. Her music isn't for everybody, but she isn't an "influencer". I find it rather amusing that Minaj, Whitty, Johnson and Morgan are involved in a public "internet argument", with Boris Johnson talking about Minaj during a number 10 briefing. Important, no. Surreal, yes.
  2. Your concerns are understandable, but Moderna is expensive - they are currently charging the EU $25.50 a dose, or 841 baht. 966 baht/dose for Thailand seems fairly reasonable. https://www.ft.com/content/d415a01e-d065-44a9-bad4-f9235aa04c1a
  3. So long as crime-fighters get paid by the word to write, superheroes like GammaGlobulin will always be here in times of need
  4. There was a time when "Phuket News" was the part of the forum which dealt with the news regarding Phuket. Now, of course, it is the place for non-Phuket residents to come and shout about what a "failure" the sandbox has been, and accuse Phuket of stealing all the vaccines from the poor and vulnerable. I understand. If I couldn't afford to live in Phuket, I might feel angry too
  5. Miss Minaj's views on vaccinations are unhelpful, if xyz celebrity has personal reservations about covid vaccines, the best thing they can do is shut up and let their "fans" make up their own minds. That said, I did find her address to the PM in a fake English accent rather amusing Perhaps a wild night out around London Town would put things to rights. As a single man, could Professor Whitty resist Nicki's charms? Or would Boris fancy an emergency "cobra meeting"?
  6. In a series of Tweets, Minaj also took aim at Piers Morgan, referring to him as a clown and a "stupid piece of ****". She later tries to reconcile with Mr Johnson, in a video where she explains that she is in fact English and "went to school with Margaret Thatcher". Nicki is a popular American rapper with big knockers.
  7. Every other currency has also experienced the pandemic, although Thailand has been hit harder due to its reliance on tourism. Thailand's foreign reserves are huge at $240 billion (the 12th largest in the world), and their debt to GDP is comparatively low. Despite everything, Thailand's economic fundamentals are sound, as viewed from the perspective of a currency trader: https://www.fxcm.com/uk/insights/what-are-economic-fundamentals-and-long-term-currency-movements/
  8. The Bank of Thailand rarely do make these kind of announcements. You'll notice the photo is captioned: The chief of the TAT would have given 500 briefings in the same time period
  9. Great news! In completely unrelated news, the number of daily covid tests dropped below 50,000 for the first time since April 2021. Way to go Thailand! https://ourworldindata.org/explorers/coronavirus-data-explorer?zoomToSelection=true&minPopulationFilter=1000000&time=2021-04-23..latest&facet=none&pickerSort=asc&pickerMetric=location&hideControls=true&Metric=Tests&Interval=7-day+rolling+average&Relative+to+Population=false&Align+outbreaks=false&country=~THA
  10. Abstruse There is plenty of humour to be found within the complexities of languages. Non-native English speakers do enjoy innuendo, even if it sometimes needs a bit of explanation.
  11. Excellent, I must confess I have rarely met a Thai lady with any real appreciation of innuendo. You could amaze her with some British bawdy comedy. Maybe she would enjoy some classic saucy postcards, or a "Carry On" film for 2?
  12. Now that I couldn't tell you. Every country seems to have its own definition of what a "covid death" is.
