Thousands of dog heads have been found dumped in the woods in Wang Noi district of Ayutthaya province, raising concern among locals who worried that the carcasses may have something to do with a nearby meatball factory. Firefighters discovered the dog skulls when they were putting out a blaze at the site. According to the locals, the plot on which the discovery has been put up for sale by its owner, and that unidentified trucks have been coming to the plot to dump off garbage without the owner’s knowledge. The locals were unaware that dog skulls were among the items discarded. Phayom sub-district municipality mayor Ruechai Saeng-ngen-on said locals told him trucks have been sneaking in and dumping garbage at the site for many months. The plot is far enough from the closest community that nobody has smelled the carcasses. Mr. Ruechai said locals are worried dog meat may have been used to make meatballs at a local meatball factory. However, he said an inspection has to be conducted because the skulls may have come from somewhere else, and the fire may have been set to destroy the carcasses. via Coconuts | Bangkok |.
New sort of scam
kaunitz posted a topic in Scams and Scam Artists[TABLE=width: 100%, align: center] [TR] [TD=class: header, align: left] Look what I just found in the inbox of my private mail (not hotmail, yahoo or similar!). What worries me a bit is that I have been to Afghanistan, so I wonder whether I just got on their distribution list by chance or if someone has hacked the ISAF server as of course I was sending and receiving mails during my time there. Both mail addresses in the header do not seem to be related with the US military, the first one rather indicates to be of Chinese origin. Anybody got something similar?

Thailand: Thaksin takes at dig at sister
FarangFarang posted a topic in Thailand NewsSiblings have a special way of taking a poke at each other, even long after they have flown the family nest. And so it is with Thaksin Shinawatra, Thailandâ€™s exiled former premier, who in a public appearance on Friday insisted, as he often does, that he isnâ€™t running the country through his younger sister, Yingluck, the current prime minister. â€œIâ€™m not running Thailand,â€ he said. â€œMy sister is running Thailand, but she may ask my advice on some issue. But not every issue. She is very capable â€“ much better than I expected.â€ Ouch. Thaksin was speaking in New Delhi, sharing a bit of his hard-won advice with Indiaâ€™s business and political elite. His main tip was to sound a note of caution to any business person considering entering the political fray. â€œPolitics is very cruel and unusual,â€ he said. â€œItâ€™s better for someone who has nothing to loose.â€ Thaksin built Thailandâ€™s largest mobile phone company, Advance Info Service, entering politics, and taking the premiership in 2001. His ownership of his company, Shin Corp, was passed to his children, but when the family decided to sell the business in early 2006 to sell the company to Singaporeâ€™s Temasek Holdings, it triggered an outcry from elites already unhappy with other aspects of Thaksinâ€™s politics. Within eight months, Thaksin had been ousted from power in a military coup, and has been living in exile ever since, with the exception of an eight-month period in 2008. His assets, including most of the profits from the $1.9bn Shin Corp sale, have been frozen. â€œIf you want to go into politics, wash your hands from business first,â€ he advised the crowd in India. â€œGive up or sell whatever you have. Iâ€™ve been robbed of a lot of my money.â€ There is another side to the Thaksin saga: his many critics would point out that he faces corruption-related charges in Bangkok. But when Thaksin tells his side of the story, he tells it well. http://blogs.ft.com/beyond-brics/2012/11/16/thailand-thaksin-takes-at-dig-at-sister/#axzz2COilfdu5

Rip off B*stards!!!
PiAnt posted a topic in Scams and Scam ArtistsRiding 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.
