  1. I joined November 2005, and first time back after a long time. This transformed into another site years ago, and I thought TF was completely gone. It is interesting to see it back up. Old posts on Facebook of Stickman, one from 2008, had this link, so I clicked it to just see, and low and behold it was back.
  2. A programer, and web designer for bt270 an hour.....hahahahahaha, good luck.
  3. I think you might consider concentrating on the third aspect more, especially part 4. to abstain from idle chatter that lacks purpose or depth. Positively phrased, this means to tell the truth, to speak friendly, warm, and gently and to talk only when necessary.
  4. I guess it would be "Up In Smoke", as she was cremated.
  5. You're obviously using the wrong key words in your Google searching. There is nothing listed for karate, as there are no dojos so to speak, but there are plenty of listings for Muay Thai training camps.
  6. You could always try your hand at managing a restaurant. If you look around you can usually find one that will give you a shot if you have experience. You could also try the oil exploration companies if you have experience. Teaching is always an option if you have a college degree. Then you can open a business if you have plenty of money you can afford to loose, and have experience in anything, but be aware there is a list of jobs you can not legally do in Thailand. Your best bet is to work for a company in whatever country you live in that also has offices in Thailand then get experience with them so you can transfer over here. This is best accomplished if you are fluent in speaking, and writing Thai.
  7. He is right in his assessment that this is already going on, and in a large way. What he doesn't get, and this shows his stupidity, is you don't change the distribution system already in place for the money received as bribes now. He is neive to think anyone is going to take a huge pay cut by giving their bribe money to the school system. It ain't gonna happen, and will very easily cost him his job if he presses it further. I'm surprized someone hasn't made it clear to him already how things work. This is another good example of the government putting unqualified people in positions of responsibility. Instead of dealing with the issue of poor educational training in the schools, he's more worried about legitimizing the bribe money already coming in, without a clue as to how it works.
  8. A simple google search for you turned up wikipedia's discription, 'C4 is made up of explosives, plastic binder, plasticizer and usually marker and odorizing taggant chemicals such as 2,3-dimethyl-2,3-dinitrobutane (DMDNB) to help detect the explosive and identify its source', but I am just going off my training in the military in how to detect, and use it. It's funny how much they taught in jungle survival during the Vietnam war era. Even though I was only an electronics intellegence specialist, coming into the war zone I still had to be trained in jungle warfare, and survival before I got there, and why to this day I will not eat bugs ever again.
  9. This is not a time for the Thai government to pressure foreign embassies to lift the warnings (of which China didn't issue any warning), anytime soon, or be saying this has only short term implications. There is one element of this no one is addressing in the news, with a possible censorship dealing with it. These suspects all flew into Thailand, and did not bring the C-4, or hand grenades with them through airport security from the countries they came from on this trip. You can tell you are around C-4 from quite a distance just by the oderous smell it gives off, and hand grenades would have set off every metal detector, or been identified through the flooriscopes used in the scanning. This points directly to there being a network operating in Thailand that supplied them with the extremely hard to aquire C-4 bomb plastique, and hand grenades. This isn't ammonium nitrate that can be aquired from any farming operation, this is military only explosives. They also revoked his residency, implying one of the suspects had been granted permanent residency, being here continuously for a minimum of three years, with only short leaves out of the country allowed, and not classed as a tourist. He also had to be supporting himself some way the whole time. Why hasn't this been reported on yet? This implies long term planning, and not simply a few tourists coming into Thailand for this one job, as the last Lebanese suspect also proved. This all shows there is a very dangerous terrorist network operating in Thailand, and the USA had good reason for not lifting the original travel warning when the Thai government refused to see anything going on that their so called intellegence network had been tracking for over a year. Yeah right...Money means more here than a few lives, as has been shown countless times. The Thai government doesn't even issue a warning when a bomb does explode, then there being a clear network in operation.
  10. Yeah, it's pretty amazing, and why I shared it months ago. http://www.thailandfriends.com/entry.php/42378-It-s-not-just-glass-anymore
  11. Thailand lacks the potential profits for any company to build a mega entertainment project tourists would pay to frequent. There is too much corruption, and government protectionism for serious investment projects for outsiders, and no one Thai has enough business sense to do it with tourists best interests in mind. Look what happened to the night safari in Chiang Mai, they also opened up an exotic animal meat restaurant right down the road. Both went bankrupt. Major changes in the laws need to be made before anyone would even think of investing in Thailand's tourist industry. Governments don't make these kind of investments, they only provide the laws, and tax structure to make it feasable. Foreign tour operators, or guides are prohibited, so no native English, or other foreign language guides that are needed. No land ownership for businesses, except in special industrial zones, then very limited. No complete ownership of a corporate business without 51% of the owners being Thai. Sure there are illegal ways around these, but mega builders don't violate the laws to do business long term. No stable government is a big inhibitor with any third world country. Disneyland doesn't build in third world countries on the speculation of change for the better, or on rented land. These are the most prevelant barriers to tourist development in Thailand. No one internal knows what to develop, or how to do it, and no local money will be spent on development without clear favortism built into the licensing, and a monopoly established. Thailand has what it needs for tourism to flourish if there was a stable government, and not a lone fugitive trying to create a dictatorship.
  12. To buy 25% of Ebay for $50,000 when it was offered again, and not worry it being the only auction site on the internet.
  13. Did you really look? There are so many recipes online, Google is your friend. http://thaifood.about.com/od/thairecipes/u/classicrecipes.htm Also www.thai.food.com
  14. There used to be a few on here, but they haven't been active for quite some time. Mostly foreign men on here only, and we moved here for the food.
  15. You've got your hands full now. Jack Russell's are one of the smartest dog breeds, and they learn very fast. I had one some years back. They are very protective too, even though they aren't very big. They travel good, and mine used to duck when we went through the tunnel in our area looking through the front car window. He traveled up, and down the West coast with no problems, except on the beaches in Oregon when he wanted to run, and knew he could. They can't stand their own smell so will roll in anything they can to get a different smell on them, like dead seagulls, and other animal poop, so be ready for that part of their natural instinct....lolol. He also learned how to honk the car horn, and would honk it if I was gone too long. He didn't just honk it in a continuous manner, he would do a honk honk honk, then wait a minute then honk it again in a different pattern as if that mattered. They are very smart so be careful, and don't act to surprised when she catches you off guard. You've got yourselves a loyal companion for lots of years.
  16. Fire up another bowl, and get under the umbrella. Definitely baking on something most likely illegal.
  17. He is extremely pissed, and will continue to take revenge on everyone involved in the closing, and nighttime demolishing of his business location before he could file an appeal to the closing. He now has a park on the location that was leveled in one night. He will force the police to close all their big money making activities, or at least make them constantly move so they can't operate for very long. It is easy for him to find them, just have to ask the taxi drivers where they are, and they tell him. The police have to tell the taxi drivers so they can get customers there....lolol.
  18. No it is actually the easy way to wind up the local assholes. Then the self professed English teacher, and Google expert thinks the opening ceremonies of the Olympics is a sporting event. That is hilarious, and really shows who the idiot really is.
  19. This is truly remarkable. Here is an amazing bit of technology that you would never see in person, as you would NEVER be alone in the room. It is ALWAYS VERY CROWDED and of course you can't see Michelangelo's artwork close up as you can here. This is especially spectacular if you have a large high-definition screen! Too many details to view on an iPhone. TO VIEW EVERY PART OF THE MICHELANGELO'S MASTERPIECE, JUST CLICK AND DRAG YOUR ARROW IN THE DIRECTION YOU WISH TO SEE.

  21. Soccer is as boring as baseball. You have to be stone drunk to enjoy soccer. The fans supply more action than is on the field....hahaha. The Football Superbowl coming up is the most watched single sports event in the world. Nothing even comes close for viewership of a single sports event.
  22. As long as she has absolutely no dealings with USA people, including anyone American at the embassy, or American businessmen, she is OK, but if she does then they are criminally liable for violating the statutes. It is now public knowledge so no one can profess ignorance...lolol.
  23. Sure it's possible, but with your attempted drug analogy it is not the case. In all my years of dealing with that element at all levels the main stash is kept at one place, and manufactored at one place because of trust issues, and security. The only time it is divided is in the smuggling operation, and then only if it is a huge operation. Most of the time it is smaller smugglers moving it all in one lump, or payed off border agents so it is again all moved in one lump. This greatly reduces the risk. It is not a question of sending smaller amounts though because one of them might be busted, but the majority will get through. If one is busted then that smuggling mode is known, and not another will get through by doing it that way. That is how it is really done. In your reference to separating the components, you keep refering to the blasting caps as being able to be passed off as innocent materials in your possession that by themselves mean nothing. This is not the case. They are illegal in, and of themselves, with no legal consumer use. You will be busted just for having them in most every country in the world. The same with the ammonium nitrate liquid it is not available in pure form to the consumer. There are ligitimate uses for fertilizer, but not in large quanities (over 100 pounds), unless you have a large farm. Then pure liquid ammonium nitrate is not available to the average consumer period. Because of the Oklahoma city bombing any large quantity of ammonium nitrate (and urea fertilizer is just the name for solid ammonium nitrate) is monitored in most of the world. Thailand is so corrupt it was possible for him to buy the illegal liquid material here in Bangkok. In the South you can't buy them for obvious reasons in any quantity if you are not a farmer, then if you are you are watched by the military. Terrorists do not operate in a manner that anyone they don't trust is allowed into their circle of details because of security issues. Parts aren't stored at different locations until needed. It is not secure doing that. T hey might recruit outside the circle, but those recruited are not trusted with any information. That is why no details came about until the police questioned the person that was identified to them, and don't for a minute think the USA was not part of the questioning. They would not blindly make that kind of an alert without solid confirmed details. A few unconfirmed people telling them about someone isn't enough until they confirm it, and those people would not know about anyone else in the circle, yet there was a second person identified. The Thais say they are mad at the USA for issuing the warning without consulting them, but the USA had no way of confirming the details without Thai help, so that part is the coverup to protect Thailand. The USA was fully involved in the initial investigation of the suspect, and Thailand increased the level of police coverage in the areas suspected of being the targets because of that investigation. Look at the timings of when the arrest was supposedly made, and the warning was made. Also consider the Swiss were never allowed to see him, even though he was on a Swiss passport. He could say nothing to anyone about his treatment, even his supposed Embassy. Those involved in this know how to tell fake passports if they really look at them in detail, not just the quick pass through immigration at the airport. Why else would they refuse to allow the Swiss access to this person to confirm his identity? I still firmly believe the other components for these bombs were in the South of Thailand. This is the only component not freely available there, and the other suspects identified from being here 6 months ago left through the South of Thailand from reports.
  24. In all of this there is one important fact that almost upholds the Thai statement of nothing planned in Thailand, and it was all to be shipped out. For an ammonium nitrate bomb to work the fertilizer has to be saturated, and soaked in deisel fuel, and not just have it poored over the fertilizer at the last minute. In all the video of the authorities with their 200 man task force emptying the warehouse there was absolutely NO deisel fuel found. For this to be a bomb making location there would have been at least one 55 gallon barrel with deisel fuel in it. They found the fan boxes, and printing paper, they were very thorough in showing the media all the things they found, but there was no deisel. Without this key component the fertilizer is not an explosive, and with all the high ranking officials there if they found any it would have been presented to the media. There was also no mercury blasting caps found, which is needed to set it all off, another key component, and they would have showed them off if they found any, or if they were smart they could hide them, but they would not have been able to hide the amount of deisel needed. Because of this fact I am tempted to believe that there was not a plan to bomb Thailand, at least not Bangkok. I am more inclined to believe this was all to be shipped, and was being shipped to the deep South. The last few bombs going off there have been ammonium nitrate bombs. I do believe inadvertently they found where the supplies for the Southern terrorists were coming from.
  25. All that was needed were some 55 gallon barrels, the ammonium nitrate fertalizer filled to the brim, then saturate with diesel fuel until it is dripping, but not totally covered, a small mercury cap to set it off, and you've got one of the most explosive mixtures available. A small single trailer semi truck could have hauled it easily to any location in the city. I wonder how many other storage facilities the advanced team also outfitted? We used that mixture to blast hard granite rock very effectively, then Timothy McVey used about 300 pounds of the stuff to blow the whole front off the Oklahoma Federal building years back. 4 tons, if all of it was used, would have taken out most the Banglampho area, and Khao San road, not just the Chibad center, and left a crater about 10meters deep.
