    Thai TV news is a model of maturity and sophistication
    i assume from that comment that your knowledge of the thai language is such that you can fully understand thai tv news.

    Well enough, yes. If it's a very technical story, I might struggle with vocabulary a little and some vox pop can be a bit of a horror but understanding the news in a foreign language is generally not that big a deal; pronunciation is usually fairly precise and the language is almost always a standard variety so listening to/watching the news is usually fairly straightforward for anyone at a solid intermediate level or above.

    The generalizations about 300+ million Americans are even better.

    Derived from the usual blind Eurocentric perspectives, measuring most everything in comparative/superlative form - creating a blind standard.

    I'm still baffled as how Westerners consciously find themselves, instinctively, the most reasoned and logical. Historic observations, up to present day, might demonstrate that such fanciful imagination, regarding a superiority role, is quite delusional.

    Any chaotic theories have yet to be explored or understood.

    Well, after another incident where a pin headed, short dicked, brain dead fuk up walked in an office and gunned down his girlfriend just because she fuked him off how could ya argue against the theory that Thai are inherintly flawed as humans.

    Fair enough .

    So let's just set the record straight and say that the Septic are seriously fuked and love to get their gun out and off a shitload of their own people and the Thai come second in killing each other.

    If the Thai had the same population as the Septic they would be even though.

    Common denominator being they were all born from the same Mother.

    I'm quite sure they would make each other extinct if they got into it.

    Maybe Trump could speed up the process.

    I'm afraid that wouldn't even get close to setting the record straight for me....

    The above were just a couple of quick examples I grabbed.

    Shall we dig a little deeper into history or find more modern examples of any number of nationalities, cultures and religions performing heinous acts that would more than qualify as illogical? The opportunities are endless.

    And to consider that another constantly present know-it-all poster to the forum, actually labeled me, as "not being the sharpest knife in the draw(er)". I guess that particular bloke hasn't met the similar likes of "yu" yet, eh?

    They're not illogical, they're just dumb and uneducated (mostly).

    Most of the replies to the OP ridicule that question. This only proves that the persons who replied are about as stupid as Thais are. Thai people would not recognize logic if it were to jump on their backs and bite them on the neck.

    I'll go along with that. They just don't see why they cannot drive down the wrong side of the road.

    The USA has 4.81 murders per 100 000 people and Thailand has 3,51 per 100 000
    There are many other Countries which have a much higher rate

    Aren't there varieties of logic and reason to consider?

    Nothing absolute.

    Oh yayyy. let's build our egos w/ one upmanship on impossible things to prove that don't really matter in the 1st place.

    How many Thais have you had sex with, Roadrunner?
    Counting men, women and LBs, huh?

    I'll bet you can speak Thai like a Thai, right? Sure you can.

    Let's see...I'm sure you cook Thai like a chef, you've been in every province and have drunk cobra blood.

    You certainly have Thai friends in very high up places starting with the police, traversing through attorneys and politicians all the way to the top and beyond.

    Hmm. I suppose that just leaves: How many degrees do you have from Chula?

    Looks like you've got it all figured Mr. Red.

    Except this: By hanging out on this forum (and TV) and complaining about the posters there - you're essentially doing the very thing that you claim they are doing by staying in Thailand.

    Get it? Got it? Gooooooood.
