1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Love Bangkok. Great food, warm weather, the USD goes far(compared to other currencies) and it's a 24 hour city. And you can have a woman ever night if that is your thing(and if you can confirm that it IS a woman!)

    LOL!!!![​IMG]

    Got that right! Men come to Bangkok and get a Thai girlfriend for the entire time that they are there. 24/7. And I see some that are questionable "women!"

    I'm learning Muay Thai. What percentage of the population there practice this art? The last thing I want is to get beaten up by a lady-man while there as a tourist.

    Not sure at all. When I return next month it will be my 2nd time there. Bangkok is a very crime-free city so you won't have to worry about getting beat up...if you use general common sense and make sure that the lady-man is just a lady...

    i actually know a couple (female and male) who got beaten up with iron bars in bangkok

    it was over a disputed bar tab. the tourist police came and stood about 500m away at the end of the street until it was over and everyone had left.

    ya, you hear of that kind of thing occassionally. Normally touts lead you into a bar (typically one of those ping pong show banana show type places) seat you, supply you with your drinks, and you learn when you call for the bill shortly thereafter that those Heinekens were like $50 each, and a couple of big burly dudes are standing between you and the door.

    That said, it is far from commonplace, and generally pretty easily avoided by not letting touts lead you anywhere....

    ahh well over 90 percent of the hookers in Soi Nana are women, it's just that there are like ten thousand hookers there, which means like a thousand of them are trannies. It's only really notable because some of them - not many, just some - are absolutely stunning. Seriously gorgeous. I don't think that people accidentally take trannies home that often, you can generally tell pretty easily...I think more than a few are curious about it and then pass it off as 'how was I to know?' as an excuse to the boys in the morning.

    On that note, when we were in Cambo the other month, there were four of us checking out this girl who falls into that category...she was fucking hot. After like an hour of watching dudes hit on her, my friend, who had hooked up with some girl there broke it to him...'that's a dude'.

    We were like 'wow..dude, if you did that, I would totally forgive you'.
