Re: Miscellaneous COVID-19/Corona Virus Discussion, Questions, etc.

With all these people returning testing positive, one really starts to wonder, IF these people were tested pre-flight and tested negative , doctors certificate etc, and arriving in Thailand, get retested and found to be positive. I understand some Military chaps have also tested positive upon return...

Re: Visa amnesty.

While I have sympathy for many, I cannot help but wonder, all those who initially had a a Visa extension and then received the ongoing amnesty, what the hell have they been doing. Hoping that Immigration would continue as before, I feel they made announcements in plenty of time and most of those hav...

Re: We have created this Monster! Please help US

If only we could go back in time. It would be interesting, and no doubt enlightening to listen to what the *grandparents (and parents) of the current crop of silly old buggers on UM were saying then about their offspring (including me). Get a grip, folks, and understand that this disparaging of the...

Yes the quote by Einstein as quoted has been open to interpretation as to WHO actually coined it first, but I feel suffice to say it is generally accepted by most as to be Einstein, whomsoever said it, it is factually correct, we are losing the ability to converse face to face .

Re: America's history

America loves rewriting history especially if it puts them in a good light, no matter how outrageous it is. We forget those of us born in Western Europe that our countries pre-date America by at least 1500 years in most cases and more in some cases. Our history in some cases has been re-written and ...

One may well blame Trump but in all honesty after seeing the Am,erican news ( various sources ) and listened to the pro and anti Trump Rhetoric, I put this figure down to the following ( placed in no particular order ) Stupidity, Complacency, ignorance , Corruption and selfishness.

Re: Special Tourist Visa (STV) 90 Days

Depends the UK use self imposed quarantine IN your own home , unlike here, even if you own your own home, you HAVE to quarantine in a specified hotel at a stupid cost . Therefore there is NO need to worry about complying in the UK, just self quarantine but what I am saying is that the Thai Govt is i...

Re: Special Tourist Visa (STV) 90 Days

What I find really idiotic is the apparent requirement for a self imposed 2 week quarantine in your own country before flying. How the hell does the Thai Government with ZERO enforcement capabilities in their own country, intend to ensure that all VISITORS have complied with that request, in ANOTHER...
