Re: Headlines Burma ( yes Aung san says you can say Burma)

Yes, they threaten to shoot and say they will protect... What crooked killer bums, descended from the most shameless dickheads and the meanest cunt mothers ever spawned anywhere in Asia... (But isn't this all England's fault? Historically speaking?) The military of Myanmar must be desperate beyond a...

Re: Payoneer in Cambodia

I have a Payoneer account. But I do not have a Payoneer card. Though it looks as if I may be forced to order one soon... I would prefer to link my Payoneer account directly to my U.S. dollars account in Cambodia. However, they are making it very difficult to "verify" my account because I d...

Re: Headlines Burma ( yes Aung san says you can say Burma)

My view on Adam Smith's responsibility for a world in which Myanmar is possible is complex... Basically, I have concluded that his thinking reflected and perhaps promoted the mindset that led to the development of colonialism around the world -- basically and simply through his justification of self...

Re: Information on Coronavirus in Cambodia from 8 March 2020 (Latest Updates)

So why are so many sick people on direct flights able to slip past screening? Why are there so many Chinese still coming here at all? Is that a pertinent question? My guess is that the people get infected in the few days just before their pre-flight test. So they still show negative on that test pl...

Re: Headlines Burma ( yes Aung san says you can say Burma)

Here is an interesting NYTimes article that suggests the Burmese military establishment took advantage of the recent democratic period to stock up on the latest high tech junk useful for surveillance and oppression. Had they remained in control since before the first set of free elections a few year...

Re: Road from Phnom Penh to Kep?

The train doesn't go to Kep... Think he meant Kampot The train stops in both Kampot and Kep... But the Kep station is north of 33... a bit out of town... If you transport your bicycle or moto during weekends, on Saturday coming from PP, or Sunday, leaving from Sihanoukville, you can get off anywher...

Re: How long do you give Humanity ?

Listen to this from David Attenborough You would have thought that negative changes to the environment should have been starkly obvious during the days of Attenborough's youth; but, awareness of the "greenhouse effect" as it was called during the 1980s never seemed to agitate any serious ...
