Re: map of Bangkok

Well, Thailand is in the news again with the violence that erupted after the election in Myanmar (Burma) that sent many thousands of people across the river from Myawaddy (Myanmar) to Mae Sot (Thailand).

I have been known to yell at the radio. eg. "It's not MYSELF, the word you're looking for is ME!! In your effort to sound smart, you sound foolish beyond belief."

Using this logic, does this must mean that if I am caught speeding, I can use the defence that I'm allowed to speed because others have been speeding, too? Only if you're an MP. :lalala: We will see what happens after the rallies on Jan 23. They are being extremely well organized with the help of f...

Re: Just when I thought people couldn't be stupider
