Re: Nuclear Power for Thailand

LFTR nuke plants can offer a tested technology to fulfill the promise of nuclear power. Look it up. Yeah, I'm a fan of Thorium tech myself but the issue of Nuclear Energy has been sooo hugely muddled by the NGOs of the world and most people, who don't bother to educate themselves on the topic or la...

Re: Is Farang an f word?

Man, what a zombie of a thread. This is turning out just as bad as peace in the Middle East issue with one side willing to make concession and the other side demanding nothing short of a total victory. Here we have the local people and culturally literate foreigners on one side trying to explain the...

Re: Nuclear Power for Thailand

Drake: Leaks are not inevitable you said. Hmm how about Japans Earth Quake? If it is designed and maintained by human beings, mistakes will be made. Its inevitable, sorry. Money prevented them from building the reactor higher up from the beach than they did. Money is almost always the weak link. Th...

Re: Farang cannot know Thai-ness

Drake, what might a homogenized global culture be? A natural element? Or perhaps a sinister fabrication? It's partly organic and partly forced evolution. [these bits were swept out to sea with the last high tides] The Old Way, the Thai-ness that this thread had been trying to fathomed, is buried un...

Re: Farang cannot know Thai-ness

I get the feeling you are suggesting that Thais get rid of their culture/language all together and replace it with homogenized Western blahs so farangs won't get too utterly confused anymore, no ? I agree with many of your remarks, but that is (for me) beside the point regarding the subject we talk...

Re: Farang cannot know Thai-ness

I've asked many Thais (of all social strata) what "Thai-ness" is, and none of them can answer me. they simply bandy about a term that has no meaning. Kuhn Wangsuda hits the nail on its head. If no Thai can explain me what "Thai-ness" is supposed to be, how can they expect a fara...

Re: Double pricing system in Thailand

Actually, where I witnessed pedophilia was at a guest house next to the police station in Mae Sot Mae Sot ? 555555 Like I've said, seedy part of town full of pedophiles, illegal aliens, rip-off artists, and criminals - except for that in Mae Sot it's pretty much the whole district. Some nice temple...
