Re: Ask us about Thailand!

I recall two female American tourists, I believe they were in Koh Samui (not 100% sure) and they were poisoned by the local chef. If I remember correctly, I think it was cyanide poisoning.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Hi Guys

I wonder if someone could help me with a couple of questions about managing money while playing poker abroad.

1. First, when you move do you change your address details with your poker site or just keep the details the same? And, if you don't have you ever heard of people having accounts closed for playing on accounts in a different country to the one that they registered?

2. For Europeans, how do you withdraw and deposit money to poker sites while abroad? Im worried that online banks might close your account if you start logging on to your account from halfway round the world, and I also remember reading that Moneybookers were really strict about this and accounts get flagged straight away when you log on to your account from a different country?

lol

i think it was norwegian+american and they were on phi phi and they ruled out food because their friends/relatives said they ate totally different things and different restaurants. they just stayed in the same guesthouse

haven't read any updates for a while though so i dont know if there is some "official" reason for their deaths

edit: might have been different case you were talking about but i remeber someone mentioning cyanide in the phi phi case and it was 2 women so i guess we are talking about same case

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

My dad is at Thailand atm on a business trip and he said "a civil war could start any moment so when u come here better have an evacuating plan ready". I don't think he was joking either. Is that just overreacting?

no, he's done a lot of research on this subject, mostly by watching videos on youtube using the search "thai girl big boobs" and then cross referencing them with photos posted on 2+2. this guy has put some work in, and we should all soak in his wisdom and enjoy the fruits of his labor.

You said of any age. That has nothing to do with age, but homosexuality.

Stop sticking it into 12 year olds! 14 is the minimum

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

I simply replied to your question.

To be technical though, the girl has to be at least 9 years old in Yemen in order to make it legal.

Last time there was a 'civil war' you could notice some things. Like on the BTS out on Siam/Chit Lom you'd see guards discreetly tucked away in the corners and rails standing there holding very big guns.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

It's not really civil war since the army picked sides a long time ago. What there has been is a bit of a military dictatorship since Thaksin was ousted, with the military installing a regime that wasn't really popular with either the left or the right.

Basically the King holds absolute power at the moment and has done since Thaksin went busto. When the king dies? That's when the real civil war will start, and when you might *actually* want to leave the country for a while.
