    okay, where the fuck is the wet t-shirt contest?, and the wet boxers
    contest? aha! i must say this is one lame way to celebrate a new year. i’d
    rather just take a nice clean shower! what if those water were piss-water.
    aha!

    Yes, the women of Thailand are great and do make great wives. However, be
    aware that you may here otherwise from many Western men. These are guys
    that bitch and complain about how their Thai gf/wife screwed them over. But
    when you seek out a prostitute from a bar, that is perhaps around half your
    age, what the hell do you expect? Sorry, I am just tired of the old western
    men that complain like this. They never meet the tons of great women that a
    younger guy like yourself would meet.

    I am so proud of my country. I missed the Songkran this year. I maybe
    missing again next year but I will make it in 2010. It is an excellent time
    in Thailand…nowhere else.

    My son lives in Thailand.(for 7 yrs) He prefers North because its safer and
    less crazy, stupid foreign tourists. He lived South, close to Malaysia
    border, and felt unsafe…more bombings.

    It’s a crazy time and everybody is considered fair game…if you don’t like
    being covered with water, DON’T go outside for 4 days!

    songkran has become sooooooo boring now, 10 years ago when i was 8, it was
    awesome, traffic EVERYWHERE, and ice cold water splashing at everybody,
    boozes everywhere, bar girls dancing with LOUD music everywhere, and
    occasionally funny gays with thick make up and exotic (erotic) clothes
    would dance in the middle of the streets, god it was so much fun, now it’s
    just… bleh!

    I wonder If all that water being poured on the motorbikes is bad for it…
    I mean those bikes aren’t water proof.

    the moat (klong) gets cleaned out before songkran every year. you can swim
    in it during the festival
