The Future According to Oda Mae Brown

Post by parrot » February 13, 2019, 4:33 pm

Whether trying to forecast future exchange rates or the health of Thai's economy or what the future of Thai politics holds.......the smart Thai will bet money on the fortune teller's forecast. The average westerner doesn't believe it and I think the average Thai would tell you he/she doesn't believe it, but deep down inside the Thai DNA, I'm of the opinion that their world revolves around those forecasts.

Perhaps if the 99.9% of Thais who were given "duff" info by Buddah/fotune tellers etc etc owned up to the fact that they were "conned" it might make more realise that all the "good news" stories are only a tiny minority. But to admit you were "duped/conned" (or whatever you want to call it) would involve considerable loss of face so its never gonna happen and the crooks will just keep spewing their b*llsh*t
