  1. Yes, if I ever have another lens replacement I'll do that way.
  2. I recently had the cataract surgery in USA paid for by Medicare & Blue Cross Blue Shield. I paid nothing, they combined paid a little over $8000. The lens were monofocal; nothing about dominant eye using a different focus. I still have to use cheaters for reading small print and upclose purposes. The lens replacement procedure is also done by some doctors for those who are not candidates for Lasik correction. I wouldn't want to be on the hook for the cost from my pocket alone.
  3. A screw loose is better than a screw lost ?
  4. I used Nam's last Sunday morning near 6AM. Nice clean car, safe driver, didn't play with phone just kept her eye on the road. 1200 hundred from Suvarnabhumi to Whisper Hotel. gave her a generous tip because it was the right thing to do for me.
  5. Seems the producers, writers, actors, etc... are not sure or can not make up their minds.
  6. Thinking the box was designed in centimeters and built in inches. No problem though, just redo.
  7. Women's soccer takes a backseat to basketball and hockey this week. Anyway a 13-0 shellacking just says the game was unnecessary in the first place.
  8. It isn't the rain so much as the smog that shortens my stays in Pattaya.
  9. "Why can't you ´╗┐just admit that Boeing screwed up badly with the MCAS implementation on the MAX?" OK, I now concur. The MCAS caused those planes to crash.
  10. I believe there is a driving school across from Foodland market on Central. If in the area you may try it, that suggestion was given me by Tik Tok Services in Jomtien.
  11. Boeing says "Flight crews will always have the ability to override MCAS and manually control the airplane." The pilots had it turned off, they could have flown it to a higher altitude before reengaging the MCAS.
  12. If only they had not turned the MCAS back on after they had it turned off.
  13. "True Grit" (1969) Edited 8 minutes ago by Samsonite If you think Rooster Gogburn had 'True Grit' , you maybe saw the action and not the story. Matty Ross had the grit, Cogburn was just a cantankerous old drunk.
  14. Tenuous ... at best; Hundreds of thousands of flights didn't crash. Bad design OK, worse pilots for sure. Glorified bus drivers in the sky, clueless when a situation occurred, everyone dies. If every MAX-8 that had this scenario happen then I'd agree except all the other time's the plane (pilots) didn't crash. You got a problematic plane, pay attention. These pilots didn't do their homework and drove their plane into the surface.
  15. The flight before Lion Air crashed the jump seat pilot (hitching a free ride) told those two pilots how to get around the same problem as crashed the plane the next day. The pilots that did take the plane down didn't bother to read about what happened on that plane the flight before theirs. I would say the jump seat pilot had the knowledge from somewhere and that the two that crashed the plane didn't. The MCAS didn't bring down other MAX 8 planes, the pilots have to have some of the blame.
