    I love Thailand, this wild shit never happens in Perth.

    Risking sounding too much like your pal thegent, I'd like to suggest you're thinking too much like a Farang and not as a Thai views the world, terry.

    You see, a Thai looks at that cable and says to himself "don't touch" and goes merrily on his way. If for some unlucky reason said Thai did get electrocuted by that cable it was his Karma and time to go.

    That's exactly how it is Huh.

    That's why they do this stuff that we consider retarded.

    They are programed from birth to expect things to be not quite normal and at the end of the day everyone is responsible for their own actions.

    I don't mind it actually. Our Nanny state shit me.

    So over the top its pathetic.

    You got it, man

    Doesn't change how us Farangs can be astounded by the comedy here though. Even the Missus who is 100% Thai (well, 3/4 Thai & 1/4 Burmese) was aghast when we shifted back here permanently.

    Now I'm no Brain Surgeon but I think I could figure out that if I left this support just sitting on the footpath like this it would be 33 seconds before drunk Somchai walked into it and it came down in a steaming pile of shit.

    This is really great stuff innit. Gota laugh.

    Err, Terry, back in the real world we call that idiocy. However, the inference you have constructed, that the Thai accept personal responsibility for their own actions, leads me to conclude that you have learned absolutely nothing about the Thai in all your years visiting this place.

    In descending order of culpability it is:

    1) Someone else's fault (always a farang if there was one within visible distance of the event).

    2) If it wasn't someone else's fault then it was anyone else's fault once we can find him and pay the police.

    3) Nobody's fault - death just happens, spontaneously and without reason particularly if you are not wearing the right amulet, have a tattoo or been down the temple recently (and there are no witnesses).

    4) My fault but only when fingers are pointing at me, there are photographs, I end up in court and have no money to pay the police.

    5) My fault but only if there is no question of any compensation or legal consequence, I do not lose face, no one shouts bad things but everyone laughs with me and we celebrate together that moment when we all know we are not just total fucking cretins but Thai cretins which are the bestest cretins in the the entire world and if you no like, you go home na.

    In truth, we all know the Thai would rather disembowel themselves and eat their own livers before admitting fault to anyone.

    A restaurant we used to frequent put in a new set of salas over their ponds and as it got dark, the cute waitress climbed up on a chair to turn on the lights. All the switches were just hanging off the wires so I told the owner whom I was friendly with that it was unsafe for the girl. A week later we got there and he proudly takes me out to show how he wrapped the loose wires in spiral wrap and tape. This is the "after improvement" photo:

    It was indeed better than this "over water" place we ate at up in Thaton once! That wiring was right at nose level for me.

    Actually that "solder wires to safety-pins" is nothing new.

    I've seen it used time and again upcountry. It's a way to 'tap into power' without cutting/splicing OR using any tape!
