@jonrussell Well @ApostrophePong can help you find good tub waan in BKK. Though he was the tub waan that Wit makes here in SYD is better.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonrussell

I remember! The two guys and the Beer Chang promo gir found a mid-value Pokémon in the bar so we started talking. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

@jonrussell Hah! That was a great night, and @ApostrophePong was so drunk I had to deal with the taximeter to get back to the hotel.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonrussell

@jonrussell @ApostrophePong If I need to explain tub waan then we can’t be friends.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonrussell

@KrazyKarl910 So let’s agree that we stop this conversation now, yeah?

@KrazyKarl910 I’m assuming that in this instance DP doesn’t mean “double penetration”?

via TweetDeck in reply to KrazyKarl910

@KrazyKarl910 Yeah, they like tweets going back years in the hope that you’ll click through

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to KrazyKarl910

@ApostrophePong @jonrussell Heh. I think it’s funny that the best tub waan is in Sydney. But these boys agreed. Wit is a good chef.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong @jonrussell We’d basically had a bonding experience over som tum and tub waan stories.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong @jonrussell I asked them whether it as good as Wit at C and they said yes but different… Tho it’s Oxford St customers.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong @jonrussell Heh. Well these two young guys are from Chiang Rai and Isan and say this new restaurant is very good…

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ApostrophePong

@ivovic Ah. I haven’t seen the last N Bond films for some relatively high value of N.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ivovic

@ApostrophePong @jonrussell Once we’d agreed that the C was and Mr B’s was for backpackers it was a meeting of minds.

@ApostrophePong @jonrussell Yeah I was being interrogated about how well I knew Silom. I passed. Sanook maak next Thursday apparently.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ApostrophePong

@JonoH I have no idea and these people basically pwn me so I do what they say.

@jonrussell No no, I’m in Thaitown in Sydney. This is the local pub. There’s another pub in Thaitown, but that one is for backpackers.

@christopherneal @jturner_ibrs @GregDAustin I thought of that. I guess it’s whether you concentrate solely on critical stuff or drill down.

@munin Pretty much. We’ve only sent regulars to Afghanistan so far, I think. I might check with Defence media relations, now that you ask.

@ddowza @MadScotty @zdnetaustralia I suspect you’re right. But @jturner_ibrs is the full bottle on this stuff.

via TweetDeck in reply to ddowza

@munin Yep. I know the usual Reserves deal is X weekends plus 2 weeks training per year. They’re well regarded.

via TweetDeck in reply to munin

@munin So paid for the time doing training etc, yes, and it’s tax-free.

via TweetDeck in reply to munin

@munin Aust has a strong tradition of community volunteering, but the suggestion is something like Defence Reserves. defencereservessupport.gov.au/for-reservists…

via TweetDeck in reply to munin

@munin Anyway @jturner_ibrs was the one suggesting press gangs, and even that fascist has moderated his views.

via TweetDeck in reply to munin

There is indeed a shortage of skilled people, @ddowza @zdnetaustralia. Hey @jturner_ibrs have you got the current figures handy?
