So you drink. Well done, you.

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Re the food threads, I think SunSan, who started it on frontstabbers.inc set out to educate people about the diversity of food and he simply enjoyed it.

I have seen posts from a few people that make me wonder whether their specific post exists simply to brag about their lifestyle.

He would heartily agree. That's the entire point of being a true Libertarian (from his viewpoint). The skirting of all "Nanny-State" regulations include refusing the use of all safety device and practices.

"Freedom!" is his mantra! "Freedom from all authority in all its forms - that is why I'm in Cambodia!" he declares often.
I would call that "Dare Devil Libertarianism". Libertarianism is more like "I should be able to choose to wear a helmet or not." In fact technically it's against the law to not wear a helmet here.

I think he's a little disillusioned, and has confused his Ideals, with the heightened Barang status you are automatically granted here on arrival.

You are only free here until you run out of money, then you're fucked.

"Libertarians" tend to be, by their very nature, against all laws in general - especially lifestyle oriented ones. And, yes, $$ is the ultimate enabler - no matter your political bent. From left-wing eco-warrior PC feminist all along the spectrum to right-wing racist bigoted fascist. Dosh determines all, in the end.

Which is precisely why we should change the system.

I'm with you, Mate. Any one human being should be limited to spending under $1 million per annum. Who can morally justify spending more? Greedy fucks.

But, the age-old conundrum - who does the redistribution? Hmmm...

Mostly from the other site and all the lame, predictable "it's beer thirty" etc. posts on there. Year after year from the same people. I questioned why making the exact same comments over and over and over never gets boring for such posters. Then I started seeing the beginnings of the same type of posts on here.

Exactly. And to me (and I seem to be the only one here who feels this way) that is so lame and boring and tired. I got bored of that shit way back in high school and personally can't fathom why adults would carry on so. But then again, most things about human behavior puzzle me.

The point? My threads are supposed to have points? Fucking hell. Why didn't anyone tell me that before I paid for my CEO membership? :cry:

Point is everyone is entitled to be a drama queen and be proud of it.
But just as any drama queen, get ready for the backlash.

Are you calling me a drama queen?
I am outraged and totally devastated by your comment, so much so, I may jump off a bridge or tall building.
