Korat News / Talk Show
« Last post by Taman Tun on Yesterday at 01:02:04 PM »
Hi Johnnie, congratulations on getting the show back on the road.
Last night about 8 of us went to a “Talk Show” at the University almost opposite Central Mall.  This is mainly because we were given free tickets.  There were two people involved:-
Col. Pongsak Tangkana, who told lots of jokes. I don’t know if they were funny as they were in Thai.  The other speaker was Gagan Malik who is a Bollywood film star.  Gagan is in Thailand to make a film about Buddhism and he had a film crew with him last night.  We were all sitting in the front row so maybe we will get Oscars for Best Supporting Actor.  All in all it was a strang evening, but at least it was free.

Hi Too Direct,

thanks for your comment! But I have to admit, I don't quite understand, what you're aiming at. Maybe you can elaborate a little, what is meant by your question "Can there be a peaceful coexistence?" Is anybody not peaceful here? :)

 :cheers

Your right JF, reading quality articles is a lot easier than writing such myself. And quality comments are even more difficult to author. So many of us have to be careful to not get torn apart by mates who don't understand and tolerate that aging leaves us less capable by the time. Therefore I thank you for this possibility of posting comments anonymously.

Please do keep up this forum at its known quality. That some people are getting older and grumpy is just natural. Nobody should be blamed for aging and gradually loosing his ability to communicate intellectually. They should also have a place matching their leftover capabilities. Can there be a peaceful coexistence?

Hi Nuko,

please don't underestimate the importance of social connections. If you always have to talk seriously and with high value content, you might not get your head free from the problems around you. Sometimes only nonsensical chatting can help you breathe again. But of course, the spilling of hatred, insults and defamations should better be kept to yourself or at least not posted on a public forum; that's what private forums are for! ;)

Education and Teachers Forum / Teachers live a dangerous life
« Last post by Johnnie F. on Yesterday at 09:50:52 AM »
It's well known that teachers can become victims of students' violence. Lots of movies have been made around this topic. Another danger they face from their wives, when they have to explain by whom they received a phone call on Valentine's Day. In Kalasin one got shot by his wife over this now:

Makes me remember, that the dean of a college I taught at here once asked me to bring my wife to a graduation ceremony, so the students would see, there are limits. ;)

Thanks! I'm glad to see this board continuing with valuable and important information. The nonsensical chatting and spilling can well be done somewhere else. Very few would ever miss that. ;)

Bangkok Post reports today, key Thai-Sino railway talks were "wrapping up", but the article reveals not so much agreement yet.

Super Full Moon Will be Visible in Thailand Feb 19th, 2019

The moon will shine in full at a closer distance of 356,836 kilometers from the earth, which will appear 7% larger and 16% brighter in the night sky.

The National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand (NARIT) is inviting the general public to observe Super Full Moon which can be seen on 19 Feb 2019,at 22:53 PM.

NARIT’s Astronomical Academic Services Division chief Supalerk Karuehanon revealed on the night of Makha Bucha day, or 19 February 2019, the moon will shine in full at a closer distance of 356,836 kilometers from the earth, which will appear 7% larger and 16% brighter in the night sky.

He said the Super Full Moon phenomenon will be observable with the naked eye from 06:11 pm. in Thailand.

The moon orbits around the earth in an elliptic path, with the farthest distance called Apogee at 406,700 kilometers, and the closest distance called Perigee at 356,400 kilometers. At Perigee, the moon only causes more tides than usual.

Meanwhile, NARIT will provide telescopes for the general public to observe Super Full Moon at its observatory in Sirindhorn Astronomical Park in Chiang Mai, at Sevent-Cycle Celebration observatory in Nakhon Ratchasima, at Seventh-Cycle Celebration observatory in Chachoengsao, and at Mermaid Observation Point on Samila Beach in Songkhla.

Some 360 schools across the country will also organize activities that night. The list of venues for Super Full Moon is available on www.narit.or.th website

Looks like the board will remain with its functions, not just readable. But all of the mods have gone. Don't know, whether I feel like reinstalling all that. Anyway, I'm impressed by some of the functions of that new SMF 2.1, of what I have a first release candidate running on http://www.koratforum.com. Upgrading to that, once it gets final, would render all the mods useless anyway. It's got a lot of good functions integrated already. We'll see how things go on... :)

The photo gallery still does not work. I might have a look at that later... :spin

Expat News / Re: Thailand’s harsher overstay rules have destroyed my life
« Last post by Taman Tun on February 08, 2019, 04:04:31 PM »
Difficult, but let’s start with this bit:- I have always had a stable life, have worked my entire life,

If that were the case then it should be no problem to meet immigration requirements.  He also says his savings have all gone which does not tie up with the worked my entire life bit.

So, should he be destitute in Thailand or back in his own country?  Surely from the Thai point of view it would be better if he returned to his own country.
