    Well, it's worth to waste a few seconds to think about where the Americans came from.

    Thai history books seem to be the greatest on earth. :innocent

    Far from it. Word goes that one man won the lottery after Pol Pot appeared in his dreams providing him with the winning number combination. Ever since a lot of Thais have started to come to pray at Pol Pot's grave hoping to get winning lottery numbers.

    One of my favorites:

    "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing".

    Pol Pot's war on teachers has been in the back of my mind recently, with Burke's warnings about "peculating despotism" and "disorderly government" not far behind.
