And with the attention span of the locals, this is going to pass through their heads about the same speed as that of a goldfishes memory.

Given the road fatalities every year, Songkran really should be renamed the "Festival of death and maiming."

lol or Death Race 2000 or The Purge. I'm sure a normal week here has just as meany road deaths as over Songkran, it's just nobody keeps a body count weekly thought the year.
