Re: Australia Burns

2 years ago, the town of Paradise in California was destroyed by fire. The town had extensive evacuation plans in place which failed. The fire spread extremely quickly and the evacuation roads were too narrow to cope with the volume of traffic when the whole town needed to flee. 87 people died as a...

Re: Ukrainian Passenger Plane Crashes in Iran.

Boeing aircraft are no good? OK. I worked on Boeing helicopters for a number of years and found them good to maintain. Quite reliable too. Did the missile hit the engine or explode under the cockpit? I'm not sure but I read below it exploded under the cockpit. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-01-12...

Re: Hmm, find it strange ...

Breaking news, Defense Secretary Mark Esper states he saw no direct evidence that Iran was planning any attacks on four US embassies as claimed by the POTUS. Is anyone surprised by this revelation? The defense secretary of the United States saw no evidence of an attack by Iran but still stands behi...

Re: Ukrainian Passenger Plane Crashes in Iran.

^ I have flown over Iran but like yourself, never visited. I thought the Mullahs and the IRGC lived off each other's need for ultimate control and repression? Bedfellows for want of a better word? Same same in Thailand really but at least we still have the somtam. I am trying to recall any period be...

Re: Hmm, find it strange ...

There is this point of view. "Trump, for his part, stood by for months while Iran took increasingly belligerent actions that threatened world oil markets and shipping channels. The president gave a clear warning to Iran that his red line was the loss of American life. Iran crossed that red line, an...

Re: Ukrainian Passenger Plane Crashes in Iran.

Yes, I think you're right, I suspect all the other aeroplanes would have followed the same route. Pilots get told off when they start doing their own thing. I've never liked pilots, readers. But what about the Iranian protests yesterday demonstrating about the lies their government told them? And w...

Re: Ukrainian Passenger Shot Down in Iran.

Ah Tamada, still attempting to ridicule a poster in a pathetic attempt to sound intelligent. At my time of posting there was nothing not even a hope that Iran would admit to even un-intentionally shooting down the plane, but it seems sanity took over, in other words admit a mistake rather than a de...

Re: Overpass/tunnel Udon Ringroad Nongkai Hwy

The area where the underpass has its Southern entrance has (in the last 20 years) been probably the most flooded road in Udon, having been under 6 - 12 ins of water on at least a dozen times (and once continually for several days) Maybe you may have missed the ~1.5 m elevation of the ramps at both ...

Another good read below. Touches on why the controlled burn policies in place didn't increase with the rising fire risk.

Re: Overpass/tunnel Udon Ringroad Nongkai Hwy

tam my reason for expecting the tunnel to flood has nothing whatsoever to do with the quality of "build", but just the fact that every year when the first big rain hits, most of the roads in Udon flood, due to a build up of rubbish/paper/dirt that gets thrown out of cars and then regularly washed d...

Re: Australia Burns

Once again, is it not the individual state and other local government departments that needs to assess and address any need for 'hazard reduction burns' and not the federal government? Even DJT pointed his fat, stubby at California for not raking the forest floors like the Finnish nation does. Maybe...

Iran ordered the closure of schools ? I think it's called respect for the 3days of mourning,as for expensive funerals ,how much does it cost to a shroud and a lorry, Muslims don't even have to pay for a hole to be dug as traditionally the family dig the hole. Compare that to the amount spent droppi...

I see the glass half empty brigade, the ones that perceive everything that their Thai hosts does is doomed to failure, are already clinging to the "tunnel will flood" validation. They should think about forming an association with like-minded individuals in the farang ghetto's across this woefully b...
