^ I think I hear altar boys being molested in the background. Disturbing.
*cough* This is the things I like thread .
The body's incredible ability to automatically mend and heal itself. Living in a miracle.
The snappy way Thai men lift their T-shirt to cool or rub their stomach. So sexy, and such a nice view. Hairy barbarians just don't do it the same, although they have their own charms.
For example, those loud grunting noises you make.
Even that funny wolf howl at just the right moment.
Bouyants posts, whether he's moaning or pleased about something I've always found them harmlessly entertaining
Free speech and TTA.
Recently, when TTA deleted my responses to a couple threads, it struck me. Then Stamp made a statement about staying in line with the goals of the website. Well, if you have a section that is entitled "General News from other countries" and you have a system set up for making comments, then one would think that talking about general news from other countries is one goal of the website. Maybe not.
Talking about the most salient news items should be a sensible, worthwhile, and educational experience.
Putting the kibosh on speech that one does not like is quite disturbing. For people in North Korea it is normal to have free speech snuffed out, but for some others it is not kosher. One can be abrasive while still respecting someone. I don't like what Buoyant says, for example, but I won't call him names or say he cannot express himself. The good thing about this website is that people basically respect each other--they are adults.
As far as TTA goes, I like it. If you are out in the boondocks in Thailand and few other foreigners or foreign teachers are around, and the folks you work under are morally challenged, it is very nice to have someone to talk with. Again, free speech.
I write about Thailand a lot, and I have had tens of thousands of hits. That is not going to stop. On the contrary. If you start a website and write on the Daily Telegraph, TripAdvisor, the Guardian, the Washington Post, and the International Herald Tribune, and have your own websites, you can reach a lot of people. The amazing thing about the internet is that if you write something, people do read it (unless it gets deleted). That is a good reason for starting one's own website to talk about "General News from other countries". Mai pen rai.
This is the things that I like thread, is it not?
Back on track
When a student gets it and then a ripple of understanding grows and extends to all.
...indeed it is: started by Buoyant, ironically enough
...and this is what David likes: he's on track then.
