  1. The whole place is rotten to the core and the occasional bloke who's got the balls to stand up and say it apparently risks even his life in doing so.
  2. Aow. This weekend is the first 2 consecutive days I've had off for yonks mate I really hope to get some **** done at home; roof repair, bit of leccy stuff and I've a problem with the new speedo on my bike I reckon it's the sensor. I'll prolly be riding fast down to Rayong again one Sunday in April if you fancy that? Kao yai? I've never been mate. Just Googled that track you mentioned. Might be up for a run there mate how about waiting until Chris is sorted?

    Stopped in at the Samsung place on Lat Prao. The LEDs look crisper and brighter than the LCDs. There's a 40" Series 5 LED at 25000, but the bloke says there's new models coming next month and the price on this would fall, so I might wait a month and see.
  4. Bastards should be shot and skinned. Preferably alive. Dramatic music na.
  5. It's going to have to cost the dirty scummy fraudulent shits at least 900 Baht.
  6. On a Sunday Tom? I'm up for that mate.

    Well, I don't know what to do now. Thinking about the wifi thing and internet access. Bolleaux. I might hang on for now I suppose I'd go to 25000 for those features.
  8. Riding home a couple of weeks ago, flat out down the expressway there on the Mio, the drive belt broke rather dramatically leaving me coasting along. Luckily I managed to drift round the big corner there onto Ramintra and made it to the motorbike taxis, where I got one to push me to a little bike repair shop about 1km up the road. Anyway, they repaired it, purposefully showing me an original Yamaha drive belt they would fit, and other parts they said were original. It took maybe an hour, during which time I watched the traffic etc, not paying that much attention to what they were doing. I paid 900 Baht for it, which I thought, having had this replaced before, was a lot, but hey, what're you gonna do when you're stuck, and set off. It felt a bit tight, which I concluded must be just the new belt and it would loosen up a bit in a few days. Well, it didn't, and last week it started making noises, so I took it to where I would normally go, and they took the back end apart, revealing a copy drive belt (which was already fraying!) and copy bits. Not the original Yamaha parts I thought I was getting. They replaced the parts, again, with original ones, the bill this time coming to 550 Baht. I'm not particularly pissed off at the 900 Baht, that's a tank of petrol on my other bike, but I'm really pissed off that they took the trouble to actually show me original Yamaha parts, and when my back was turned, they did the slight of hand thing and shafted me, with big, smiling, lying faces, and probably had a good laugh afterwards. Well, this time, I'm not going to forget it. It's just one time too many. This will cost the motherf*ckers more than the skanky 900 Baht they think they got away with stealing from me.

    Cheers guys, I'd go over my budget a bit if I had too, but, really anything bigger than 40 or 42 is just too big. I did see that some had wifi connections and internet access too, but the cheapest with wifi was almost 30,000 and although it would be handy for all these movies on my computer, I'm not sure I'd watch it often enough to warrant the extra.
  10. For Nicky's charity, 50 original music CDs. Job lot. All boxed, full priced originals; many brought from UK. I've copied them to MP3. 20 Baht apiece would be 1000 Baht (20 squid!) for Baan Gerda. More would be better. Could deliver or meet Rachada or Ramintra area.

  11. Popped to Lotus Nawamin to pick up a few groceries, cleaning stuff and whatnots and decided to treat my self to a new telly 40/42", 1080p, LCD, plasma or LED, USB, HDMI and preferably less than 20,000. There's a really big range at this spec and price, Sony, Samsungs, Panasonic Vieras, LGs. There's some 50" too but I'm already pushing it with 40/42 in my living room. After the obligatory 30 minutes being avoided by sales staff, I accosted one and said I'd have a Panasonic, to be told they were out of stock. same for Samsungs, Sonys and LGs all types of screen. Bollocks. Anyway, maybe someone's trying to tell me something, like only fools rush in maybe. So, I'll go to Lotus on the expressway tomorrow instead. But before I buy, any recommendations?
  12. ... no one should be without. 1. Open Office Perhaps not as shiny as MS Office, but every bit as good. Also fits excellently in with my life strategy to never, ever give Microsoft and the bastard Gates any of my money. 2. Avast Anti Virus As good as anything you'd fork over some of your hard-earned for. 3. Ultimate Defrag (V.1) 0% fragmentation and choose where your files go too. Version 1 is free and beats any and all competition hands down. 4. GOM Player Plays 99.99% of anything you throw at it. More features and options than you can shake a bucketful of sticks at. 5. CCleaner Fuss free basic maintenance and cleanup. 6. Tracker PDF-XChange Viewer Sick of Adobe's umpteen updates a week? This PDF viewer is even better than Foxit. 7. Stardock Object Dock Give yourself another reason to laugh at Mac geeks by installing Stardock's Object Dock for that funky shortcut bar along the bottom of the screen. 8. Picasa Organise all those home made porn pictures. 9. Skype Keep in touch with the fambo with free video calls and chat. ------------------------------------- Any other gems you know of?

  14. The celibacy thing didn't work out then mate? I'm gonna stick with it a bit longer see where it takes me.
  15. You do get about a bit mate don't you?
  16. It might help if you gave us some inkling as to what it actually is mate. Sounds like a Chinese word for a ribbed tickler. (And who's that bird standing next to you in your avatar mate?)
  17. Jesus Christ it's turning into some kind of freaky religious fest! Did Revelations give any indications as to the prices at the pumps??!!
  18. Well, if it's as cold again tomorrow, it'll be a blissful release.
  19. So, you saw two girls walk in wearing the (real) designer duds, the expensive shoes, hair perfectly coiffed, etc, then saw them take their cameras out and ask the staff to take pictures of them playing pool. Your back was to them but you could hear them laughing hysterically trying to draw attention to themselves, when they missed shots. Saw them making pouty faces and entirely staged and exaggerated movements when, as you said your back was to them. Looking through the few mirrors, you got a better view because you could see them when they thought nobody was looking, and could see their eyes scan the room to see if their latest antics had drawn any attention and saw one girl quit playing and walk into a spot where she could be seen by everyone and started texting away. You saw her friend playing against one of the staff, where, after every shot, she would walk over to see what her friend was doing and strike a mechanical looking model pose. And, with your back to them you could watch them watching the pool hall seeing if they were "impressing" anyone. It must have been a real strain to pay them so little heed.
  20. It's the right ingredients, in just the right amounts... It's 729 layers, and several well spent hours... It's when one degree too high, is too high... One minute too long, is just too long... And then you remember, this is the most irritating advert ever... Just on the off chance that someone knows this bloke, kick him hard in the nuts for me.
  21. Well ja, much of what is written on here is colloquial (slang), idiomatic, or just plain silly English and, in fact, this is the perfect place to learn English as it is used. I don't understand all of what is written on the Thai forum either ja; you also use slang and idioms there, of which I have little knowledge. It's ok to ask what something means if you don't understand ja, I wouldn't imagine anyone here would belittle you for it, and many are glad to explain stuff to someone eager to understand. If you're referring, specifically, to the "Chance would be a fine thing." comment, you could Google the whole phrase, as it's widely used as I wrote it, and means "It would be nice if I had an opportunity to [get a big hug in public]."
