    Re: Getting arrested in Thailand

    When I ask him he just says "the propoganda is ramping up", and that's all I get out of him.

    I have a very difficult time believing the Chinese military leadership is stupid enough to pull the trigger and invade Taiwan. I know they want to, but I can't see them actually doing it.

    Is there something I'm missing here? All looks calm on my radar, but my friend is spooked for some reason.

    You're in China, right? Is there anything you're seeing on your end that I'm not seeing? This is a 38 year old wealthy businessman, so why is he flipping out like this? Is there something that's showing up in your end of the world that I don't see?
    What, may I ask, has this to do with getting arrested in Thailand?

    That's probably the same question the judge asked him during his trial.

    I have an Aussie client baed in China who won't shut up about China starting WWIII. Apparently, in his mind the invasion of Tiawan is going to start any day now.

    I keep trying to tell him it's nothing more than propoganda and nobody is starting WWIIII but he doesn't want to listen.
    Remind him that as a result of the One Child Policy Chinese soldiers are a bunch of Mummy's Boys whose parents won't support a government that robs them of their one and only child

    We like to live dangerously!

    Not knowing if you will live to see tomorrow is quite stimulating and adds excitement to our sometimes dull lives.

    On a serious note, I live across the road from the beach and wouldn't dream of going for a swim. Shark attacks are a regular occurrence not far from where I live.

    As for getting arrested in Thailand, there's a tv show here about how our embassy in Bangkok tries to help Australians who get into trouble in Thailand and end up in prison. The scary thing is how easy it is to find yourself in trouble. Although far from paranoid, I am very careful about what I do.

    For example I'm aware that bars have CCTV so any "fun activities" with the guys are always carried out behind cushions (like in Eros) or we sit in a dark corner. At Golden Cock the door was always locked. And if there were any policemen enjoying a coffee in the lobby of the Tarntawan Hotel, we always waited until they left before going upstairs.

    Better to be safe than sorry.

    Fish eventually learn to ignore troll bait.

    When I first read this, I was not sure who eats whom. If you put man in plural, you get "men eating sharks in the sea", which completely changes the meaning. The standard form is man-eating, which avoids confusion of who eats whom.
