  1. How long is a string? I'd expect dick all for capital gains in a market with excess supply but you could be a landlord or AirBnB operator if you lived there to manage it. For a yes no answer I'd lean a lot towards no.
  2. I asked them several times to improve their signs on telephone poles from the Bun Kanchana alleys, but they never did and when I encountered 4 mangy angry street dogs on the street one before theirs I swore off ever going there. Also if you're out on bike or scooter there are less frightening routes (than Sukhumvit) back to Pattaya via the Pattaya bypass that goes by the little railroad station. Though you have to cross Sukhumvit once which is its own adventure.
  3. I ride a bike from the bottom of the hill from Pratumnak to the beach and out to Na Jomtien where the road such as it is, ends. You can get around to Sukhumvit or 2nd Road with some zigs and zags from the end. There are two seafood restaurants at the end that are popular, not for me because I don't like seafood but maybe a good choice for foodies. Baht buses beyond Chaiyapruek are few and far between but I see a handful. Very nice for riding, almost no traffic. The beach out that far is mostly rocks and boulders. There are a lot of sois and alleys and a couple roads between Beach and 2nd Roads that are interesting to explore. At the Sukhumvit end of 2nd Road there's a field where it's common to see cows and sometimes goats. You can get back to Pattaya from the other side of 2nd road via Chaiyapruek or Bun Kanchana towards Theprassit. More cows, few vehicles, but way less hectic than the major routes.
  4. Could be a good decoy safe in a condo where it is very obvious and the real one is better hidden.
  5. I think when he said the keypad never worked you could assume it's defective. Still for ten bucks if it works with a key and can be lag bolted to a concrete wall or floor it would keep quick hands away .
  6. Good news for investors. I have acquired a considerable supply of "other", "miscellaneous", and "hmmm...not sure" to quadruple production. Send cash in 1000B notes (minimum 100) to Shyster McChemist 123 What The Hell Are Those Pills Street c/o Near the Dumpster Behind the Food Mart and Only between 3 and 5 a.m. Pattaya With your name and contact details. And your tolerance to "hmmmm....not sure". For testing.
  7. "Negro" rap? Were you there in 1965 and it was a bar in Alabama?
  8. I am starting a Thai small business and looking for investors. I have secured a good amount of "etc." so we can get a pill machine and make Black Aunt, and a companion drug, Black Uncle.
  9. If it is cheaper than generic Viagra and you trust whatever Mongolian quonset hut factory its made in, Black Ant is still just a dose of Viagra with a list of nonsense other ingredient allegedly added. You have to like a list of ingredients that just adds "etc." at the end of the line probably due to no room to add more yak penises and hippocampuses.
  10. It's Eva Air's duty to buy a replacement ticket even on a competitor assuming you can reach them which seems to be more than difficult. On another site someone said they were rebooked outbound to Bangkok on BA via London from LAX, and the same class of service (PE) that they had on Eva. After even a couple of days it has to be nigh impossible to manage all these people, the worst cases people stranded away from home vs. not having left yet.
  11. They have cancelled all flights until June 28 though if they settle they would restore some, somehow. Offering refunds, apparently hours or days for e-mail reply, 800# jammed, people stranded all over hell's half acre. I don't think they are working too hard putting passengers on other airlines, certainly not BA which is not Star Alliance.
  12. If you are Chinese they are in Chinese, etc. And there is an animation that a child could follow. Still the two ladies ahead of me a couple weeks ago were complete tools at it with several attempts. And then her husband with 5 more people in the line (no doubt 5X useless at it given a chance) one over asks me if he and they can cut ahead of me. He stayed in his line as you can imagine.
  13. 4 pm to 2:30 a.m. each day both Saturday and Sunday no traffic on Beach Road, from Dusit curve to south of Central Festival so assuming this music fest has been staged before on Beach Road, what do the baht buses do? 3rd Road? They go north to the dolphin roundabout but have to get back south somehow or Naklua will have 2,000 stranded buses in about 2 hours.
  14. Most of us sleep 8-10 hours, some commute 1-2 hours, some work where personal electronics are not allowed in the workplace for 4-5 hours at a stretch, and yet we all survive 5, 10, 15 hours with no wifi. Read a book, watch a movie and connect when you land. I get offered free wifi in business and first class and I don't use it. More to life than Facebook. I was sitting across from Red Point today on a really tired looking Soi 6 due to lack of punters. 100% of the girls were sitting out front with their noses buried in phones for IG or FB or whatever. Not appealing if one feels you are interrupting them.
