    They must have failed "Life cycles" miserably in science.

    not really, anyone with a suppressed immune system can get it anywhere, even system-wide. it's common in AIDS patients (fortunately i'm not one of those, i just went through a course of antibiotics for a stubborn sinus infection). not sure my amateur diagnosis is correct but it's happened to me before after a sinus infection. throat and lungs are where i'm having troubles right now, peculiar discharge from throat makes me suspect it ain't bacteria. could be a long-lasting virus though (3 weeks and counting). tuesday i can afford to see a doctor... the 'down there' kind are not necessarily anything to do with the immune system, more a byproduct of female anatomy. men get it too (especially from their significant other) but piss it out in a matter of a day or two.

I'm not sure how they feel on the topic of road kill, but I guess they see themselves above that.
    i'm not really a cannibal i only eat fruitarians. i'm sort of a meta-fruitarian.

    Hey Phil..............................how many Thai instructions are written on Marmite? Don't those British idiots realise some non English speaking people may want to eat it?


    The world does not revolve around expat poms. As much as you may think it should.

    I tend to make my sauces and stuff from scratch, I'm really not that keen on packets. Plus, cooking is something to do; there's not a gre at deal to do in the area I live so cooking helps me keep my sanity. If you are having problems working out how to use a jar or a packet of sauce do you really think you should be teaching?!

    i think it'd be worth investigating what those labels they paste on really say. it might be useful information. for example, Thais don't typically use mustard so as an exotic condiment they probably enjoy reading about the history of mustard and it's application, and what better place to publish this history than the mustard jar? ok i'll admit it. i don't read the labels.

    (Things that drive you mad in Thailand part 86)Things that drive you mad in Thailand part 86

    Let's see if I can explain this one:

    My wall-mounted hot water system (you know the ones) stopped working so I told the front desk people and left them to fix it/replace it.

    Came back several hours later and went to take a shower with my brand-spanking new heater (bigger than the last one, Yippee!)

    Went to close the bathroom door and it wouldnae close, would it?

    They'd installed the heater with the door pushed right back and now the door is trapped behind the heater. If you see what I mean.
    This space for rent.

    just make sure they put the drain at the highest point on your balcony or bathroom floor. if they haven't done this, get them to re-do it.

    If you're a parent you'll get this.
    My kid likes to have bed time stories as most kids do. We buy books for her, or she selects her own which have both thai and English in them. The Thai is always written perfectly but the English is terrible.
    Usually they have a picture of a smug Thai person on the back of them that thinks he or she is doing a massive service to the minds of young Thais by expanding their knowledge of English at such an early age, by getting the Thai parents to read a language they don't understand properly to their children.
    I just don't understand why anyone or any publishing company would go to great lengths of writing, illustrating, publish and selling a book without having the English checked first.
    We aren't just talking about little mistakes, but written words that make no sense at all! My daughter often selects books that look nice, i often have to make up a story to go with the pictures because it's that bad!
    Those that want to read whatever they can want all freedoms, but have to understand they can have freedom, but it must be within the law.

    That's everywhere. See my current sig:

    "We're turning around to serve you better. -Tourist Police 1155" -Actual poster, Don Muang Airport

    Not only is it poor English, it either
    (a)makes no sense
    (b) suggests they usually have their backs turned, ignoring people
    (c) suggests they are literally spinning around in a bizarre effort to please
    (d) is crudely suggestive.

    That's about the funniest thing i've read all year.

    Bring on Kilroy Silk thingy, that's what I say. Then we can all have a collective victim fest.
