  1. Matt, evacuate from your blog now I have planted an explosive code and your blog will self destruct in 10 minutes, spraying cheese all over your screen.

  2. You seem to interact with totally different people compared to the ones I meet daily in Thailand.

    Yes, many people are talking about the bombs. But my colleagues at work and my friends are all doing what they did before New Years Eve: go to shopping malls, restaurants, you name it. My local Central is as crowded as always.

    The population of Thailand is around 62 million – 1000 (number of suspicious items reported to the police) is less than 0.00002 percent of that number! Does that make the population paranoid (assuming that each report was filed by a different person)?

    Ever considered that maybe some kids wanted the afternoon off and called the school's administration to claim they had planted a bomb?

    Do you honestly believe somebody will claim responsibility if they have not done so yet?

  3. But that's 1,ooo more calls than happened the day before. Depending on their motives somebody may or may not come forth and claim responsibility. But the longer it goes on, I guess the less likely it looks.

    Everything is just so uncertain. I saw a short, fat soldier with a machine gun chatting up a cute BTS lady today. Are those things really loaded?

    Matt
