    The other chap is underwater with a speargun towards the back of the shot where there's a sort of wave breaking..

    Remind me of grizzlies after salmon.

    How about posting a photo. Easier to describe what you want than using Thai/English when shopping for a heater.

    dunno what you guys are complaining about

    It was a cool 18C this morning and it is still cloudy, so will not get above around 25C today

    really nice

    we have a quilt we bought in the local market, all nicely hand-made and warm too

    I sit here and think, are you taking the piss? I mean, my missus lives near Chainat. When I call her she complains about the cold and how many layers she has on.

    I say "what?"

    How the fuck can you be cold?

    Hows that 'really nice'? It sounds fooking freezing! If you wanted to live in arctic temperatures then why did you choose Thailand?

    I think I passed through there the other day on the way to Phitsanoloke. It was bloody cold, she wasn't lying.
