Re: Boxing

Actually ,after watching the video,I think the referee stopped the fight to soon!The hands didn't come down and he still had his legs under him! I have seen many of Roy Jones Jr. fights recently and he lays on the ropes covering himself like this a lot!There is no doubt in my mind that he was stunne...

Re: Plain stupid, impossibly ignorant or simply selfish?

seems to me that although I have had some inconsiderate acts by Thais when face-to-face that most of the idiocy is out on the road. Could it be that the restraints of Thai society and culture are cast aside when driving a vehicle?? The people whom, if you confronted them in a queue would quickly ba...

Their is a difference in ''grassing''on a Thai in Thailand,than someone in our home countries!If you know the facts and you feel a serious danger from the situation,in Thailand you move,in your own country you report them!
