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.
Maybe filling in all those lakes wasn't the best idea.
Sure, it would be much better if we all lived in a giant swamp all year round.
A false dilemma (or sometimes called false dichotomy) is a type of informal fallacy, more specifically one of the correlative-based fallacies, in which a statement falsely claims an "either/or" situation, when in fact there is at least one additional logically valid option.
A retention basin, sometimes called a wet pond, wet detention basin or stormwater management pond, is a pond with vegetation around the perimeter, and includes a permanent pool of water in its design. It is used to manage stormwater runoff to prevent flooding and downstream erosion, and improve water quality in an adjacent river, stream, lake or bay.
Stormwater runoff overwhelms city sewers and can damage nearby streams and rivers through erosion. Handling the stormwater near its source can save millions in costly repairs that would otherwise be directed at correcting erosion or controlling flooding. A common method for managing stormwater is to build a basin. Basins are meant to collect the water, and release it at a rate the prevents flooding or erosion.

That Rolls Royce pic is from Thailand a couple of years back isn't it? And what exactly are they trying to do, roll it over?
It is actually in Mumbai, and the picture of the woman in the yellow rain coat was taken in Ho Chi Minh City. It's amazing how keen people are to slag off Cambodia when the pictures aren't even from here.
