  1. He did this in March already. The reason being that he got a visit from SEC regulators asking to stop his tweets as they had too large an influence on the market. https://markets.businessinsider.com/news/currencies/big-short-investor-michael-burry-stop-tweets-sec-regulators-visit-2021-3
  2. I have also met working girls outside Nana, they were also tattooed, not all granted, but a good percentage. It is basically the very hard core, true sex workers who are tattooed, the freelancer occasional sex work girls are sometimes not tattooed. This is not transferable to the rest of the world where the tattoo is more ubiquitous among non-sex workers, and indeed sex-workers often do not have tattoos. But in Thailand, if she has a tattoo the odds are great that the is a sex worker. Of course there are exceptions, but as a general rule it is usually accurate.
  3. It's different in Thailand. I can assure, I have meticulously surveyed Nana in this regard, as I have great interest in working girls. Sociologically. The very vast majority of girls at Nana are tattoed. Yes, the tattoo in the West may well be common among non-prostitute, but it is different in Asia. Here it is common among prostitutes.
  4. It's a very simple. In Nana 100% of girls tattooed. Outside Nana very very few. Therefore it is quite clear, if a girl has a tattoo she is most likely a prostitute. Very simple.
  5. No, actually if you walk through Nana you will see that 100% of the prostitutes are tatooed. When you walk outside Nana almost none of the women are tattooed. The poster was right, tattoos are a clear sign the girl is a professional sex worker. Obviously this rule does not apply to men.
  6. Thanks, good to know, but that would not work for me, you could not stream video in 4K with that reliably.
  7. And I am of course very happy for you that you found what works for you. Of course the more experiments mankind makes, the more likely we all progress. Personally a small suburb out of town yet close to the town/city, or an island paradise with modern amenities like Samui seem the best option. I couldn't take the noise in even Pattaya central, but everyone now and then we all need Tokyo or Bangkok or New York or London or Paris or whatever city you can get to. The excitement and facilities are just on a different level in the big cities.
  8. Praise Thailand. Very happy for you. I doubt that is the case across the board in villages in the middle of nowhere though.
  9. So you live close to a town, not in a village in the middle of nowhere. I think it's very relevant. What are these projects that keep you busy? Exactly my point. Which is why this huge exodus of farmers to the city takes place. It's a horrible, boring life, in the countryside. Yet you type this on the internet, a rather non-spiritual modern activity. You're right of course, modern life is spiritually empty, it is materialist. Which is a good thing. You can enjoy real life. If you want to meditate on re-incarnation the monasteries are available of course, city or c
  10. I am sure you're both good cooks, but you can not replicate the fine dining experiences which top chefs create for patrons. Unless, like them you and the wife are willing to spend all day in the kitchen. I am pretty sure you don't. Sure, home cooked food can be very good, but most people like a change, most people like the special dining experiences which top chefs provide, by labouring all day in the kitchen. And home cooks can not provide that. Of course shopping is a boring necessity if you only go to Makro and Tesco. However, if you have the options available in the
  11. Yes, that would explain the massive exodus of young people from the villages to the cities. That is not just because of work, but because of the attraction of the cities, the things it offers which villages can not and never will. Sure, one per cent of youths want to do work in the countryside, but let's not kid ourselves that is a tiny minority. And often a very strange and cranky minority. Just think of the Unabomber, one of the great defenders of life in the countryside, not exactly a fun normal guy, was he?
  12. Yes, it certainly does take a person with a certain mindset to endure the isolation for a longer time period. Who can do just gardening, building sheds and walking around all day? This is a lifestyle for a person advanced in years possibly more than for a younger or middle aged man. Today's generation has grown up on fast internet, the latest PS4 games, world class shopping, highly developed culinary demands and entertainment options. Who would want to forego that for a life walking in the fields? Only the very driven, like say the Unabomber who wanted write his thoughts down and build things
  13. That's certainly true and I do recognise the importance of fresh air. But clearly, as has been amply demonstrated on here by people who have lived in villages for extended periods, most end up hating the boredom, lack of restaurants, lack of shopping, lack of services and lack of entertainment. There are of course people, the Unabomber springs to mind, who have no issue living an isolated life, however, for most it's not a good option.
  14. Yes, the voting power of the older population is organized and well recognised by political parties. That is probably why pensions have been untouched for so long when it has been clear for decades that they are unsustainable. People have linked the arrival of immigrants to various agendas, including propping up pension and compensating for low birth rate, but I doubt politicians have that kind of vision. Why do they allow the influx? They probably have no other choice, letting people drown on the high seas or letting smaller neighbours handle all of them is just not viable.
