I'd agree. I think he meant that there are middle-class Cambodians studying in the capital who live in cheap digs. That's not exactly a big revelation to me though. And besides all that, fuck living anywhere where you can't swing a cat. 8-)
I'm fairly certain he said factory workers living alone are middle class.
Maybe that's why so many cats have short tails, smaller radius...
Cats don't have short tails. It's you and Bingham that have short brains.

Yeah, and you've got such a fantastic brain that you're living in a 4 meter square room in one of the worst parts of the city. Well done.

History of cats in Cambodia is a long story even though it’s only a short tail
While the domestic cat is one of the most common animals in the world, experts are divided on what breed the Cambodian short-tailed cat actually is and where it comes from...
Tailless cats are also common to Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia.... http://www.phnompenhpost.com/7days/hist ... short-tail

:facepalm: Ok, stumpy.

BTW I only lived in that room until I found a decent flat at a decent price, which is what I was suggesting the OP may like to consider. Your trying to tell him that a same or smaller sized room in a guesthouse is the better option may well be correct for him though, but he was asking about his options.

And I didn't mention guesthouses, I was just trying to say that a 4 x 4 room is unsuitable for most foreigners. I realize Diogenes spent years living happily in a barrel so it's possible.

And it's "You're" - you need to get yourself one of these mugs.

The mug? tl;dr

I think you may want to reassess that sentence, as it was selected especially for people like you. :hattip: You may find you're the mug here.
I'm available on Saturdays from 12 pm to 12:05 pm, as it looks like you may require some tuition.

BTW you do realise that most bed-sits in the UK, which I have seen/ lived-in in my younger days, are far smaller and grottier than those 4 x 4 x 3 m sized rooms you seem to hate so much. Do you own a guest house Mr. Bingham? Have you ever seen a piece of 2 x 4?

He was agin the rich
He was agin the poor
He was against all trepidation

He was agin the rich
On the loose again
He was agin the rich

There's a new fiend on the loose
On the back of the exhaust clip
Clipped on rich and poor alike
Come to roost again once more

Ol' Nick doesn't go from digs to digs no more
Hit him on the head with a 2 by 4

Nowadays he has a Georgian glazed porch

Used table leg to club son in law

New fiend in your home again
He said show me my quarters and glasses

There's a new fiend on the loose
Jolting in his tradition
It's a fear of the obtuse
He's got patents on the moaning
