Re: Joke Thread

A narcissistic pervert boarded a plane in Phuket with a box of frozen crabs and asked a blonde flight attendant to take care of them for him. She took the box and promised to put it in the crew's refrigerator. He advised her that he was holding her personally responsible for them staying frozen, men...

Re: Bangkok protests: updates and photos

Some non-exhaustive definitions of an“Elite”: Larousse (ancient version) = “Ce qu'il y a de meilleur, de plus distingué.” (the best, the most distinguished). Concise Oxford Dictionary (1976 ed.) = “(1) The choice part, the best (of a group); select group or class, (2) hence advocacy of or reliance o...

Re: Abandoned dogs in Bangsaphan

Aaaaaachoum! Ooh, please excuse me, but I'm allergic to people who transform the words of others to make trumped-up affirmations … As YoursTruly has announced that he has definitively left this thread it is pointless asking him where and when I have ever said that most of the residents of Bang Sapha...

Re: What bastard tied this beautiful dog to a tree on the be

@ dogsdinner It's really heart-warming to know that, having rescued the beautiful dog that was so heartlessly abandoned on the beach in October 2013, you have found a dog lover (whatever their nationality) to adopt her, and that she is very happy. Like you, I find it truly upsetting that too many pe...

Re: What bastard tied this beautiful dog to a tree on the be

Hi yoursTruly, As you say, “nobody cares about your problem, so why should you care about theirs” - isn't that what my high moral stance has been about? Have you a better suggestion for trying to change that mindset, other than a pretext to do nothing? If a low moral attitude had more success in hel...

Re: What bastard tied this beautiful dog to a tree on the be

bsb- What do you know about how much, if at all, I make donations for children, or anything else for that matter? And what's keeping you from contributing 50'000 baht to their cause NOW? Thanks for the invitation, but I would be more fearful of meeting you anywhere than of meeting all the dogs in th...

Re: What bastard tied this beautiful dog to a tree on the be

Hi yoursTruly, No problem, and congratulations on a step in the right direction! I stopped worrying about what others think about imperfect little me when I became aware that what is important is being able to face my own conscience and say to myself “Yes, I tried to do the right thing to make thing...

Re: What bastard tied this beautiful dog to a tree on the be

bsb. Poor you. At the risk of wasting my time, you may be interested, at least as a parent, in reading the article on the BBC website (bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-24615946) in which Christiana Figueres, UNFCC Executive Secretary, speaking to the BBC says inter alia, and I quote: “I'm committe...

Re: What bastard tied this beautiful dog to a tree on the be

Dearest yoursTruly, Sorry about your ass and your damaged pride – so you are sensitive about some things then …? I've always enjoyed a challenge and look forward to spotting you on the beach amongst the horns of all the other ferals. You can't miss me - I'll be setting the cat amongst the pigeons, w...

Re: What bastard tied this beautiful dog to a tree on the be

yoursTruly It's less the length than the content that counts (!!), and I find your post not only interesting but impressive that you should go to such lengths to attempt to justify why some reprehensible human conduct should be acceptable and that of dogs condemned. Whilst your argument shows that y...

Re: What bastard tied this beautiful dog to a tree on the be

yours Truly. The difference between humans and dogs is that humans are supposed to be capable of reasoning whilst dogs function by an instinct for survival, not by egocentricity and narcissism. Humans can choose to be humane, i.e. benevolent, compassionate, empathetic and responsible, and we have ab...

Re: What bastard tied this beautiful dog to a tree on the be

bsb, what is « your purpose » in life ? « Dogsdinner » asked for respondents to « use their brain before pounding the keyboard ». F.y.i., the brain is in the head, not in the gut ! Did you ever stop to think that whatever the nationality or reason the cowardly, irresponsible, dumb and heartless pers...
