Glad I didn't go to Thailand this year!! We were seriously considering going for a food tour type thing this summer but I've been off work 7 months this year and we couldn't swing it.

"Explosions are tearing through southern Thailand with reports of a blast in the tourist hub of Phuket, just hours after a woman was killed in Hua Hin.
In Patong in Phuket - the most popular destination for foreign tourists visiting Thailand - a bomb has reportedly exploded at Loma Park.
Another unconfirmed report said a police box exploded on Patong Beach's main road, at the intersection of Soi Bangla."
Latest - A series of bomb and fire attacks have left 4 dead and dozens injured. There is no confirmation who is behind these awful attacks at this time. Tragic. May the dead Rest In Peace and the injured recover as much as possible.

"The bombs were planted on the street where most of the customers are foreigners," he told CNN. "And they went off while foreigners started to leave the bars and go back to their hotels." http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/11/asia/t...hua-hin-bombs/

Please excuse me for sounding negative, but some days I really hate this world we live in. Bombs exploding, people mutilated and beheaded, little kids kidnapped for use as sex slaves then murdered, shootings, knifings, and on and on and on it goes. The world has gone freakin mad.

If anyone can figure out what the heck is going on over there --good lord
just now another one at beach
08-11-2016, 11:50 PM #14
It simply going bonkers - this one I can not figure it out - they keep going off the first was 9 hours ago and then the beach 17 minutes ago. I dont know enought about over there to like get a baseline of what this is - they are just copying the rest of the planet I imagine pathetic.................
gezzzz where do all these people get stuff for bombs, it seems like it has become the same as picking up milk somewhere - if I recall correctly years ago bombs were for armies - not citizens at any location time or place.
At the end of the day we are animals. Any living creature desenstizes to events that happen over and over - now days its like Oh a bomb--whats new?
Feels as if bombs now days are no different than bullets
