New TF Bug?

When I click "News & Info" and choose "Headlines in Thailand" the page loads, but I don't see any headlines.  Anyone else have this problem? Maybe it is caused by the same bug that causes a pop-up at the bottom of my screen.

Miss Thailand Wins Ms. Universe

Well, sort of....she didn't win the Ms. Universe pagent, but she did win most photogenic and best national costume.  Well done. I must say some of the costumes were incredible.  I also liked the new swimsuit format.

New TF Feature? - Horrible

I don't know if this is a new TF feature or something I downloaded by mistake, but I now have all sorts of tools at the bottom of my screen....Translate, Recent posts, photos, facebook, twitter, join chat.......I hate it.  Takes up far to much real estate on my small screen.  Yes, I know I can collapse it. What do you think.

UK bans drinking games

As reported by AP.   Maybe this is good for Thai tourism.  Maybe TAT will take this and run with it.  LONDON - Bar-going Britons may soon be bidding goodbye to their country’s all-you-can-drink deals, as well as some of their more outlandish drinking games. The government said yesterday that it was banning irresponsible promotions and boozy contests such as the “dentist’s chair’’ - where alcohol is poured directly into customers’ mouths - in an effort to tackle Britain’s binge-drinking problem

Waisting Away

I put on my shorts today and noticed they were loose. Then I put on some jeans that I bought 2 weeks ago and they were a little tight when I bought them. Now they are very loose. I need to wear a belt with them. Crap, I can't afford to lose any more weight. I was already very skinny before I lost this weight. My secret...no snacks between meals and eat lots of pasta. Some exercise, but always busy. FYI: I just wanted to let those who aren't native English speakers know I used the wrong

I though many of you would like to read this. I saw a similar, but different article in FT on July 28th entitled "A cautionary tale from China". http://www.forbes.com/2009/08/14/china-imports-private-equity-opinions-beijing-dispatch.html

Who is Stranger?

Who is stranger? MJ or all these people/fans who are morning his passing or celebrating his life or can't get over his passing. I see all these interviews on the major morning shows on major tv stations in the US of everyday people. Don't get me wrong he was extremely talented and changed music forever.

Sexting

Do you know what it is? Is the media elsewhere as transfixed on it as they are in the eastern US? Have you sent one? Have you received one? Do you know it is illegal here and could ruin a jr high or highschooler's life?

Miss Ladyboy 009 Crowned

I got a good laugh out of this one where it says the following..... "after eating 29 other contenders". She must have been very hungry. I wonder if they tasted delicious or not.

Iron Mike

I saw Iron Mike on late night tv. He is very out of shape and has this strange tribal tatoo on the left side of his face going under and over his eye and back toward his ear. Surprisingly he sounded pleasant and close to intelligent. He still has a lisp, but nothing like it used to be.

Job Requirements - Female

I think it is great that people post job opennings on TF so I thank those that do. I didn't want to ruin her journal job posting http://www.thailandfriends.com/index.php?op=modload&name=Journal&view=journal&juid=72330&jid=64752 and I have seen similar requirements, but I wonder why the job requires the applicant to be Female. Can anyone tell me? Other than making the company look more beautiful or possibly being able to convince men to buy more than they would from a man w

Rude IM Behavior

Other than people asking you to show your body parts via web cam list some rude IM behavior you have encountered? My favorite is I am talking with Asians (they also live in Asia) I know in the real world and next thing I know they change there status to "Away" or "Busy". No notice or anything and I am sitting there like an A-hole waiting for them to come back. Many times they never come back. Is this just an Asian thing or is it universal?

My First Kiss

Today I am very much a smitten. Someone sent me my first virtual kiss. So sad I can not see who sent it since I am not a premium member. I just hope it was a "she" rather than a "he" who sent it. Maybe it is a "hot" she, maybe not. Any one want to come clean?

Foreign Aid

In today's paper I read the US gave $28 billion in foreign aid in 2008 to more than 150 countries. Did we miss giving anyone a free lunch? This excludes funds related to the Iraq and Afganastan wars. The top receiver was Isreal ($2.4 billion) mostly to buy weapons. This number will rise to $3 billion per year for 10 years. The second winner was Egypt ($1.7 billion, including $1.3 billion for weapons). The third winner was Pakistan ($800 million) followed by Jordan ($700 million), Kenya ($6

Obama - I told you so

Here is one tax cut idea Obama is floating. Like I knew was going to be the case, I will not be eligible. What a surprise. But in talking about his economic recovery package, Obama has mentioned his campaign promise to offer a "net tax cut" for "95% of American workers." One option that could get Obama a good way toward that 95% is his proposed Making Work Pay credit -- a centerpiece promise in his campaign. The credit would essentially work as a payroll tax credit equal to $500 for individu

Americans Lock your Wallet

Obama is ready to pick your pocket. Spread the wealth. What a mistake electing him. His friend and my governor have the same style and beliefs and the governor is a flop. Both guys tricked voters into voting for them and neither have a position on anything except give money away to any group that asks.
