    Being fooled by Thai charm the result of a rare western intelligence gene deficiency?

    Many millions of westerners have visited Thailand on vacation, yet only a tiny percentage of those have subsequently dumped their life and tried to emigrate there.

    It seems to me that nearly every westerner I meet living in Thailand is enchanted by "Thai charm" to the extent that it has made them dislike their birth country enough to walk away.

    So what is it that attracts these westerners to a population which, lets face it, is lazy, primitive, corrupt, and which gets by on bullshit over substance?

    Or the fact that they share the same traits, perchance, and have discovered their preferred society?

    You really are an obsesive bore, Smeg. Why don't you just f*ck off back to the UK and stay there? Why do you need to post on a Thailand forum still?

    I make no apology for this cut and paste job. It is taken from a post on another forum, which i mad e about five minutes ago in answer to a similar query.

    I understand why you are smiling and being very courteous, but some of these other stupid fuckers may think you are giving them the come on. Where they come from, they are not used to people smiling and being helpful, unless there is something in it for them.

    Smeg's mostly right.

    Westerners have a sense of fair play and equity. Laws in the west dictate it.

    Those laws don't apply here. Anyone who comes here thinking the same rules apply is in for a fleecing. Do they deserve it? No, in my opinion. They should have read up on the scummy business practices employed in Thailand -- to include the government (customs and police) but they don't deserve it. We can only hope they never come back. It'll serve Thailand right.

    ^ Yup.

    And from the local perspective, the below from last month goes to show that the local sacks of shit can't even compete with the Vietnamese.

    Bangkok Post : How the rice pledging scheme is backfiring on Thai farmers
    Thai rice exports have fallen 30% over the six years to a global market share of 22% while Vietnam has seen its exports rise 56% to capture a 20% global share, becoming the second biggest rice exporter in the world.

    Thai farmers cannot compete against Vietnamese rice farmers in terms of productivity and price, meaning Vietnam will gradually grab a bigger rice export market share at the expense of Thai rice exporters.

    I don't know your story but you must have been stitched up like a kipper by some Khon Thai to feel the need to whine so much. Get over it. It wasn't personal

    that wasn't my experience during the 2 yrs I lived in Thailand - most of the ex-pats I met seemed to complain a lot about the place but only ended up staying because they had a Thai wife and kid so felt stuck.

    Well seeing as most farangs in Thailand probably ain't even capable of getting a ride on the local village bike back in farangland, sex with third world whores probably does have it charms to a lot of people.

    This facile question could be just as easily directed at any of the myriad groups who choose to visit Blighty and evidently remain for whatever reason piques their logic.

    Smeg, at which point did you realise you were a failure?

    Could it be the chance to get away from nutters who repeat the same old shite over and over and over again?

    24/7 pussy
    24/7 food
    cheap accomodation
    great movie theatres
    great 125cc rides
    easy living
    never alone if you choose so

    compared to comunist Norway, close to stalinism,
    the easy going life in thailand,
    despite its violence, is a blessing

    and the pussy man !
    have you ever had better pussy than thai ( or lao, combo, viet same same)
    and the little brownish people smoking with such an enthusiasm

    make my eyes watery
    and my heart all mushy

    ....though his threads are almost popular and attract bundles of attention. It's not Smeg, per se, but instead the redundant topical matter.

    NO

    I think it’s the result of being…unloved, uncared for, and forgotten…by the female sex for soo long, for whatever may be the real reason behind it. So just a bit of desperation on these guys part is understandable.

    But after the whirlwind romance w/ those thai girls dying down and all the emotionally, and physical needs have been met, that’s when they finally wake up and join the real world….AND say to themselves…wat the F*** happened to all my money!
