That's right nerds, i'm out, and will be spending the next 3 weeks in lobster paradise. Prepare for imgur bonanza of photos of seafood, modern but cheap apartments, economy aircraft seating and buses buses buses. What, you think i'm a millionaire? Nooo, THIS guy wouldn't even pay $400 for extra legroom.
I got 9 days in Bangkok (which i cannot be convinced it's not pronounced Bang Cock) and 9 days in Phuket (which i cannot be convinced it's not pronounced Fuck It), even went as far as to book my AirBnB right next to the fish market,
FYI, did you know Thailand leaglized motherf* weed not 2 months ago ?

I welcome any and all legal and ill.. actually, just legal, tips & tricks for the city. If any residing ATOTers want to meet up for "who can eat the spiciest curry" challenges, i'm up for that as well.

Curiosity, have you been there before? We were thinking about going to Thailand, but don't know a ton about it.
i have never been to asia in general.
if i'm not mistaken, the weed they legalized is essentially hemp (<2% thc i believe)
So ..
i too read this, that they have set a THC maximum content, but then again, Bangkok has got f* WEED SHOPS that sell kindbud, and reports of people going there and getting stoned, so i think it'll have enough THC for my needs.

But, the British economy! Why aren't you spending your pounds in UK to stimulate the economy?

.. as i've said before, i think you should feel free to fuck anything that makes you hot. Besides, i've always been one for Booty Love.

Still, in my list of things that are awesome, proper massages rank higher than happy endings.

Be sure to watch this movie before you go. You don't wanna get caught up in a royal mess like that!

Two women are arrested for smuggling while vacationing in Thailand.
first off, no thnx,
and second, also no tnx.

A few years ago i was casually being alive and all of the sudden my brain decided to revisit all the things i did in my life, and i realized i barely escaped prison more than once.
Also, i no longer carry drugs with me, but rather go to where the drugs are. So, about once a year, i hop on a flight to anywhere coca leaves grow. When i am *not* in this 2-week drug break, i don't do any drugs, not even a puff of a joint.
Plus, as a former hippie, i've always know that thailand (and turkey) are the two places you don't fuck with. 'Member?

When in SEA you gotta have at least one helping of durian, jackfruit and marang, seafood should be delicious

For some reason I read "I have been to" as "I haven't been to". Oops...
we had a house in the hamptons since the 80s.
My sister lived in NYC before the Giuliani years, when you could still afford a loft.
I went to college in boston.
I got a pretty good idea of what the pizza in the US is like.
