Re: Printing Money, Inflation, Debt, QE

My banker is taunting me with an extended-credit card, but hell no. No taunting, Financial literacy is an important part of life that should be taught in school, instead of being ‘woke’. Credit cards build credit. Which in turn can increase credit scores. Since credit scores are linked to a lot of ...

Re: What makes sex great?

The feeling that you're doing something you shouldn't. Which is shit for someone who plays by the rules. Basically I'm gonna eventually have to start doing very strange stuff to the Mrs [emoji2369][emoji2369] Not sure about that. Missus older brother travels all of Cambodia just to do what he shoul...

Re: Tailored shirt for less than $10??

I’d hazard a guess it, might be found out in the provinces, where the price of labor is a lot cheaper. Price would strongly depend on material. A shirt made of cheap fabric, maybe. In terms of where most foreigners live - the big cities - Phnom Penh, and Siem Reap - where the price of cloth and labo...

Re: How Many Stupid Deaths from Electrocutions in Cambodia ?

Province villagers caught in a thunderstorm believe that standing on one leg will protect from lightning. Good luck bringing them up to western electrical safety standards. In addition to poor electrical house wiring, lots of appliances with frayed wires, etc., continue to be used way beyond their s...

Re: How bargirls survived during covid

As one member alluded to, it isn’t just the bar girls that have a short term view on money. I would have to guess about half the Khmer are savers and planners. The other half are not and spend money like water and take on irresponsible debt. Virtual doesn’t convey all the intangibles of body languag...

Re: NKOTB & his Khmer Missus adventures in Texas

Magical Winter Lights festival. Held at the local race track, of all places. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20211123/5df526a53a36f684a9afea74c1258f1e.jpg Yong was asking where are the crowds? They are here, crowded together and mostly not wearing masks. Stay safe. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/...

Re: Kyle Rittenhouse Acquitted of All Charges

It is insane!!! The 2nd amendment has ironically become a level of fundamentalism that has progressed to extremism & makes jihad look like a hobby. So many people don't see reason through their right & entitlement! Selfish fuckers!!! How about the 1st Amendment? The right of citizens to fre...

Re: Mall Mania in Phnom Penh

In an odd bit of synchronicity, I was only just reading about the death of malls in America. Maybe they should just send theirs over on a barge. https://sephlawless.com/inside-creepiest-abandoned-malls/ Cambodian society is different from American. Amazon hasn’t permeated every level of society. Mo...

Re: Mall Mania in Phnom Penh

The problem with the Khmer malls is local management. Olympia Mall is a poster child of this problem. Basically a glorified Khmer local market enclosed under glass with aircon. It’s a tic the box of amenities, without thought to how things actually work together to provide a quality experience. Then...
