Seriously, the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy should be abandoned

This is another blow for people who support the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. I wonder how they would react if they saw the latest performance of their soldiers in the video. Maybe the guys who participated in the making of this clip are trying to say something to those who are against gays in the army. And they seemed to be doing it pretty well.

Nice bum

He clearly has nice buttocks and a good muscular physique. In terms of physicality, I nowhere match this guy or many other men. Having said that, my rump can beat this guy easily as somebody has often told me. If you do not believe me, feel free to request verification. Talking about one’s tush, in general I think an ordinary Asian man has a much better rounded butt than a typical Caucasian guy; whereas axiomatically the latter has a more manly body than the former. As they say, different people have uniquely different assets.

The world does not revolve around the Yellows and the Reds

It seems to me that the PAD and the UDD each just want their own way to the exclusion of everybody else. Somestimes I wonder if they want to live with each other at all. At the end of the day, nobody is going to achieve anything by beating each other since they all live in the same society. The problem will never be solved by one side winning. It is only going to exacerbate the situation. I can see why khun Abhisit proposed the reconciliation. Here is my comment on Bangkok Recorder:

“We all know that the PAD and the UDD don’t see eye to eye and there is no way that the two sides will ever be on the same wavelength. Be that as it may, if they want to move the country forward, all parties need to find a way that everybody can agree upon. It seems to me that these two groups each just want their own way. But they need to realise that the world does not revolve around them. There are other Thais who simply want to get on with their lives and their voices should also be heard. I think Abhisit knew that he would take some flak for his Road Map. But Thailand needs to find a way out of this political fiasco and he was obliged to come up with something to alleviate pressure and prevent futher damage to the country. Being able to compromise is part and parcel of becoming a mature, democratic society. Everyone needs to consider each other’s wishes instead of resorting to throwing tantrums.”

Mesmerising

Synopsis from Festival-Cannes:

“Suffering from acute kidney failure, Uncle Boonmee has chosen to spend his final days surrounded by his loved ones in the countryside. Surprisingly, the ghost of his deceased wife appears to care for him, and his long lost son returns home in a non-human form. Contemplating the reasons for his illness, Boonmee treks through the jungle with his family to a mysterious hilltop cave — the birthplace of his first life…”
