  1. Checking locally here in the US. There is no way I could get a PCR test back in time for a flight. Right now people that are showing signs of covid are put at the head of the list. I was told it could take days. Maybe driving to a major city would be an option (6hrs for me). Haven't checked there yet.
  2. I don't think I have ever gotten through the terminal gates to leaving the airport in 25 minutes. I've waited longer than that just to get my luggage.
  3. 50000 US insurance. Is that a step down from the 100,000 covid insurance or full coverage bought in Thailand? No mention of hotel lockup.
  4. When I was around 11 years old I think. My family was moving from Kansas to California. I got to witness an atomic explosion. It must have been one of the last above ground test. They had the countdown on the radio. Saw the flash, and the mushroom cloud. It was a ways off. The cloud was about the size of the last digit of your finger at arms length.
  5. I don't think that will happen but very possible by accident Norwegian rocket incident https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwegian_rocket_incident. I am more of a believer that we will be like all other cancers, kill the body until it can no longer sustain us.
  6. I haven't had a TV in at least 15 years, and but reading through the pick of others made me realize how hard it would be to pick 5. But I will put a second of some of the choices of others that I didn't expect to see here. The Prisoner Firefly The original "Twilight Zone" Yes Hitchcock Black Adder (WW1) Monty Python I will throw in for some just for fun Lexx Rocky and Bullwinkle Topper
  7. We came at it at different angles but we both think something is fishy in the math. Before covid the average income was around 14600 baht a month https://tradingeconomics.com/thailand/wages
  8. I don't know much about the blueberry market, but if a Thai makes 500 baht a day, 2500 a week, maybe 130,000 baht a year. 14 times that would be 1820,000 baht or around $52,500 US dollars. Market value of blueberries in the US last year was $1.40 a lb. So they would have to pick 38,335 lbs. I don't know how long the Fin picking season is so I will guess 12 weeks, 60 days if 5 day work week. That comes out to around 640 lbs a day, if a 7 day work week, 84 days 460lbs a day 46 lbs an hr for a 10 hr day. Very hard work!
  9. Set a time limit. Thai families mostly do a good job of caring for their own.
  10. Does she work? If you can afford it, move out and let her stay there. I think you will still feel like you want to continue to pay for the boys education. Give her the least amount of money to survive. Maybe she would take a cash amount. That way you would not be paying for ever.
