    How much rain caused that?

    I hope you found shelter in a decent, or better, an indecent Bar

    One of the more interesting Thai foibles is their steadfast refusal to learn anything practical from their neighbours even though the improvements are manifestly apparent to anyone with the meanest of intelligence. It surely is a fucking wonder that they have round wheels and not some fucking stupid diamond shape.

    Anyway, one such obvious benefit to the urban environment that Singapore had incorporated into its urban planning and road construction in the 1960s was the addition of monsoon drains running parallel to the road and pavemernt which took all the seasonal runoff and let it drain into the sewer system without the flooding of the road system. Nice big culverts, everywhere, iucking simple to build and every so often paving slabs were laid over them so pedestrians didn't fall in and break a leg. Actually, if you were pissed you could easily end up in one as I did one night in Serangoon but that's not relevant.

    So, why the fuck have they not built them here where they get the same fucking weather?

    Have you asked them Asshat? Once you do, be sure to report back.
