I didn't break the law
In the spirit of the vast humanitarian accomplishments of the Royal Family of Thailand, and especially of Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, pictured here...
I would like to revise this thread to say, what was your gift today to the Thai people?
I taught in a school to developing young minds who are eager to learn how to be competitive for the rest of the world.

the answer to the secret of the universe is the secret itself

I gave a few free conversation lessons thru msn last night to some past students.
Language exchange actually. 30 minutes English, 30 minutes Thai.
We are buried beneath the weight of information, which is being confused with knowledge; quantity is being confused with abundance and wealth with happiness.

^ Nice work Jimbo.
I slowed down my vehicle for some passing monks. They did not run across the street like most Thais. They did not even speed up. Had I not had the Lord Buddha's knowledge to slow down, give them respect and give myself some karma, I might have ran into them.

I stayed in bed all day which eliminated the possibility of causing any unnecessary conflict.

I didn't leave the country.
Faith, by itself, isn't a good enough reason to believe. Instead, a belief must be defensible through reason, logic, and evidence.
The idea that faith is somehow justified by the fact that the beliefs cannot be proven is a truly Orwellian position to adopt - not to mention intellectually and ethically dangerous.
This one was yesterday's actually.
I went out with a Thai woman who has been stalking me by telephone and using other people's numbers to call me because I refused to answer her phone. I told her the truth that I had a girlfriend and asked her to pay her tab for the food...and the moto-taxi ride that I paid for to the restaurant.
She agreed to pay and I got her a taxi car home...at her expense.
Lovely! Teaching Thai women the humble art of independence.

Also I didn't break any of my students' kneecaps.

I woke up today ready to take on a day of teaching eager young minds how to be economically competitive with the developed world. Have my lesson plans packed and all other material, ready to go.

I drank Thai beer today and therefore helped the economy of the kingdom.
