    If Thailand shuts its borders on all 40 million + tourists coming in/out, I wouldn't worry too much about your visa overstay.


    But wrap you and your passport in alcohol-sprayed clingfilm.

    Or that people writing the lists are making assumptions, just like you.

    Trump puts Mike Pence in charge of response to coronavirus, says US risk ‘remains very low’



    Key Points

    • Vice President Mike Pence will be put in charge of the U.S. response to the deadly coronavirus outbreak, President Donald Trump announced Wednesday in an address from the White House.
    • Trump also said that the risk to the U.S. from the deadly coronavirus “remains very low.”
    • The coronavirus has spread to nearly every corner of the globe, killing more than 2,700 people and infecting tens of thousands more.
    • The Trump administration has taken numerous steps in response to the virus, such as declaring a public health emergency and imposing travel restrictions and mandatory quarantines.



    Trump puts Mike Pence in charge of US response to coronavirus


    Smart move by Trump.

    If it goes 'belly-up' (fails) he can blame the VP.

    If it goes well, he will claim that his administration kicked it's arse.

    Trump isn't completely dumb

    Falangs are the lowest of creatures in Thailand, much like soi dogs in the hierarchy, so they'll manage somehow and if not then they won't.

    Yep, smart win-win, also adds to Pence's CV if he runs in 2024.

    You could talk about how bad Brexit is! Make sure you pick a time when Troy, Cryille and Mr Sausage are also available!

    I'm also getting a bit bored here in Korea, not going out much, the next 3 weeks 'working' from home, so if anybody fancies popping over for a visit you're more than welcome (Chokdee has two beds, but I'm sure he wouldn't mind sharing one...).



    Korea has jumped up overnight by another 20%; we only had about 50 cases this time last week.



    ^ &, another 210,000 sect members are currently being tested, so that number is gonna massively rise!!!

    S. Korea's virus infections near 1,600, new cases center on hardest-hit Daegu, church followers

    The church is all over Korea, but expect another few thousand infected just from their Daegu 'branch':








    We had a visitor yesterday (not sure what it actually does...):



    (Yep, the wife likes to keep her 'office' area nice and tidy... )


    &, only a few pages back, folks were saying that I was over-reacting... Where is Mr Sausage now with his 'predications'???

    That would be great, actually! The news is coming in thick and fast today, if I understood the TV correctly then all bars are also now closed for a month. That is certainly going to put a dent in most of the cities social life and I also feel for my local friends who work in bars, they will be going without pay for a month. As I see it life is still pretty decent for me, I'm glad I don't work for the main competitor of my school - they might be made redundant at the end of March.

    ^ flights to Korea are really cheap at the moment! &, they'll likely give you a 2 week free holiday in a big tent by the airport before stamping your entry card - win, win!

    A lot of people are suffering... My contract ends next month, I'm supposed to sign a new contract this week, it's been put back to next week, maybe they'll just get rid of me? Things are up in the air, for sure. I feel sorry for the employers too, they are taking big losses.

    Indeed I didn't ... I value my time and I'm not going to give that Orange Twat and more breaths then I have to.

    Still maintain it was smart to pass the job to the VP.
