    Many Stupid Thais

    So many Thais cannot follow a simple line of sight pointing it is incredible. If you point at an object they are unable to understand what you are pointing at. What the hell is wrong with them?

    What was the object or person you were pointing at guilty for.

    If pointing ever becomes an Olympic Event, Thailand is a shoo-in.

    A pointing notion with lips and nose poised and slight movement of the chin/head is most appropriate.

    Things that Occidentals don't understand, therefore creating a comparative/superlative anthropological issue of it - as they do with most everything.

    Slow learning and acclimation curve. I dare to ask as to whom is the real backward party.

    ^ Agree... cultural differences... Thais are no more stupid than anyone else... perhaps less well informed/insulated or less 'worldly', but they ain't stupid..

    Supposed worldiness doesn't guarantee enlightenment, less anything, my dear Richard.

    Solid reflective examples are found here on TD daily - where spatial disconnections and cultural illusions pass as worldliness and superlative knowledge.

    I get what you're saying, but I'm listening to the Joe Rogan podcast currently & feeling quite enlightened.

    Maybe a Thai could point you in the right direction.

    My daughter had an ear infection which the doctors were having difficulty clearing up.
    My MiL got together with a group of elderly ladies and they discussed the matter. There solution was to find a local pregnant woman and have her spit in my daughters ear.

    Yeah right on Dick

    Edit:- my missus would have gone along with it if I hadn't been here as her mother can't be shown to be wrong/stupid.

    Given that most Thai cannot see beyond the end of their nose, it's scarcely surprising they cannot identify objects in the distance - the same is true of their lack of cognitive ability in that many simply cannot formulate or grasp an abstract thought. If it is not related to food, sleeping, rutting, drinking, gambling, face and easy money, it's fucking Mars.
