They play soccer all the time and I think you can get most of the major matches. Thai people love soccer.

Apperently there was this rugby worlds semifinal on blocking everything else sp we couldnt get it anywhere.

ohhh crap we lost 1 - 3 to spain...

We did see like the final 5 minutes of the rugby with some english guys. and since im clueless about rugby I was all like, we are going to win the final yeah, and they where like no chance in hell mate.

And apperently thai people dont like fat people either, well screw the upscale nightclubs until I lose a bit of weight i guess :-)

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

actually my hard studying is paying off. I just finished my first session, and with a little(all right alot..) help from Cookie and Ofdabeat, I'm up 7 bucks. It would have been around 20-25, but I hit a bad beat.

36 more days of winning this big, and I have enough to pay this month rent.

Well then...

I could coach but... youd have to take a trip south to the loverl islands of the south and leave the polluted, hot city of no beaches. (Notice we be having plenty of beeeeeatchs AND beachs, whereas BKK only be having the Beeeeeeeeatchs.)

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

at the risk of sounding extremely judgmental, I still don't see the appeal to travel across the entire world just to pay for pussy which it seems most of you are doing and strangely bragging about it.

a)While paying for sex isn't optimal life strategy, one can find tons of girls in any city to [censored] for money who have access to proper healthcare and std testing.
b)There are plenty of females in the US
c)The quality of life is obviously better.

The only appeal I see in Thailand is the cheap cost of living, but there are many cities in the US where you can live very similar...not at the risk of lack of infrastructure, proper health care, or sanitation. Not to mention crime and corruption.

Going on vacation to see a different culture like that one dude's blog seems awesome, Thailand seems to be a great place to travel and get to visit many different sites and climates. But living there, someone must explain the appeal to me.

Its been a while since I have read the entire thread but aren't most people bragging about picking up chicks for free rather than paying for it? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Quote:

b)There are plenty of females in the US

Many men find american women to be a pain in the ass.

Quote:

c)The quality of life is obviously better.

This is entirely subjective.

I would give a full answer to this but I don't live in Thailand. Personally I find Laos a better place to live. To quote a previous post, the reason is this:
Would you rather live the lifestyle of a movie/rock star or be just another middle-class citizen? I'd prefer to be an American multimillionaire, but since I'm not, this is the next best thing. There are plenty of other factors, but I'm not going to elaborate on them now since I'm multitabling.

I was merely speaking of the people in this thread who constantly brag on banging filthy third-world whores. Big high five

thailand is a very easy place to pass the days. people don't ask you a bunch of personal questions about who you are or where you came from, what you do for a living or any of that...people don't judge you (at least not openly) or look down on you for random stupid things. you can wear sandles and t-shirts every day of the week and wake up at 3pm and not feel like some sort of mis-fit and societal outkast...actually in doing that you can feel quite a higher form of being as farang have a higher status in thailand. even ones who dont shave, have on ratty clothes and are half hung over and stumbling so starbucks at 2pm, the thai's still look up to them. thats a cool feeling.

its hard to put a finger on it exactly...you kind of just have to go and do it. but it certainly isn't for everybody, and from the tone of your post i can most certainly tell it is not for you...but that doesn't make you any less of an ass for insulting and looking down on those who do prefer it.
I guess I can maybe see where your coming from if you were content to live like a bum everyday. There is a pretty noticeable tone of despair in your post though.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

surfinillini : we are not in the states anymore. Having a ( really hot and submissive girlfriend and shagging whores/semi whores/party girls ( most of the time for free too ) is like having a beer and watch the sunday game with friends here.
More than 90% of the prostitution in thailand is aimed at thai people it's just adjusting to local culture... and the only guys who are judgemental about that around here are either impotent/gay or smelly backpackers.

Other than that no one i know of is living in thailand "to shag third world hookers" no only the weather is great, the food is great, life is cheap, you can live like a rockstar, girls are beautiful, there are some of the best beaches in the world, cross the border and you can shoot a cow with a rpg, there are elephants on the street, people smile, everybody has a great sexlife, and so on....

your ignorance is insulting

to make it short: most ppl have to work all their life and wait until they are retired to achieve the same lifestyle we 20somethings have here.

oh, and you've never been here right?
-Healthcare is definitely very good and pretty cheap, and actually considering how much $$$ sexworkers are making they can even afford private hospitals if they want.
-on infrastructure: lol? at least in Bangkok. ok, the only thing that piss me of is no hot water at the sink, kind of a pain to shave...transportation is as good as anywhere I've been before and a lot cheaper, internet..well..not as fast but still I achieve 120KB/s dl and 30KB/s ul and I can live with that..seriously what do you mean by infrastructure?
-on that guy blog, lmao, going on a guesthouse organized trip in Changmai and spending a week in Ko chang with Swedish girls doesn't count as experiencing a different culture in my books.
-on quality of life, average Thai vs avg American, yeah I agree with you; but now take an average American (and his average american salary) and put him in Thailand...he'll definitely have a better quality of life...Professionals with movable job choosing to live in so called developing countries is definitely a trend esp among young ppl...
