@michaelneale It has certainly caused some mirth, at least, in households where partners look at the credit card statements…

@SnarkyPlatypus Yeah you’d only have to go one stop on the subway. But you’re right, Skytrain will give you the better orientation.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus So you’re changing at Phaya Thai to the Skytrain? Seems the long way around. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BTS_Skytr…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh, I forget that the airport link is SRT rather than BTS. Bloody Thai infrastructure politics.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus You should have an excellent view from the BTS Skytrain on the way into the city.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus That’s why the terminal building is designed to look like snake scales. Also, passive cooling! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suvarnabh…

@SnarkyPlatypus “The airport is located in a once low-lying marsh, formerly known as Nong Ngu Hao (Thai: หนองงูเห่า, lit. ‘Cobra Swamp’).”

@NuclearAnthro @IndianExpress Well indeed. Australians, despite the lack of respect for class and authority, are really quite compliant.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro @IndianExpress Interesting experiment for India. I suspect the “success” of compulsory voting is culturally dependent.
