Re: stickman says ....

Here's a paragraph from this week's Stickman column: "For the daring, current reports have it that Soi Nana is crawling with friendly, accommodating ladies. 1,500 baht seems to be the going rate and 1,000 baht may be possible. Bargain. That’s about as cheap as you can reasonably expect prices to be...

Re: world heavyweight title

I think Joshua is the best boxer of the bunch, however, his chin is suspect and with just a little luck one of the big punchers is going to knock him out. He is not though, as a boxer Joshua is very limited, he is stiff and his movement is poor, he doesn't always stay in the same spot but he tends ...

Re: world heavyweight title

They underestimated Ruiz Jr, thought it would be a walk in the park KO for AJ and his adoring fan boy groupies ! What they found was a heavyweight with faster hand speed than Joshua and boxing skills to match. Ruiz Jr had an amateur record of 105 fights and only 5 defeats, trained by several top tra...

Re: Transferwise.

So how would you advise doing tweny five thousand pounds from UK to Thailand ? Is this a bad idea with Transferwise ? While the fee for that amount is higher than a SWIFT transfer in my experience the exchange rate for TransferWise is enough to cover the difference. I have found the absolute best r...

Re: stickman says ....

I understood Stickman sold the website and related intellectual property rights a couple of years ago and returned to New Zealand to live. The purchaser was paying Stickman to keep writing the Stickman Weekly. The purchaser wasn't successful and was apparently losing money. He couldn't afford to pa...

Re: Power cuts coming to Udon ?

so that you can run your house safely on generator power. Some of us don't want to run the entire house on generator power. The electric will be back on in a few hours. Maybe a day in the worst case. Why over-engineer a temporary and relatively (in most cases) infrequent problem? Anyone running a g...

Your post basically portrays bigotry by grouping everyone together as ignorant and bigots because it does'nt match your own opinion.

Also labelling such a huge percentage of the electorate as Squalid shows what a knucklehead you are.

Re: Alternatives to Thailand

Thailand does get a fair bit of negative feedback these days, though i reckon a number of expats have left i dont think its been the mass exodus thats been touted around for a long time.
