Cyndi Lauper – ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’

I come home in the morning light
My mother says when you gonna live your life right
Oh mother dear we’re not the fortunate ones
And girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun

The phone rings in the middle of the night
My father yells what you gonna do with your life
Oh daddy dear you know you’re still number one
But girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have

That’s all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Girls – they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun

However, Ms. Patcharida said that she had filed a suit to the Administrative court on January 23, 2012 because she was disgruntled by the goverments approval of pledging tapioca for 10 million tons and limited pledging to 250 ton per person in the price of 2.75 THB per kg at a meeting in Chiang Mai.

This project will start from February 1 until May 31, 2012 with a totally amount of 33,000 million THB. She said that this project cannot solve the problem of the decreasing price of tapioca. The program will prompt buyers to offer even cheaper prices in order to pressure farmers into entering the program.

Thailand – Police raid amateur sexvideo operation in Korat

Via: The Nation

Police yesterday arrested three Britons and six Thai nationals at a house in Nakhon Ratchasima for allegedly running an online sex show that fed footage for broadcast in a UK town.

Ina Radal Davies, a Welshman, said he earned around Bt100,000  each day from running the business for over a year  and did not think it was in violation of Thai laws. The two other foreign suspects are Englishmen Mark Sotell and Kieth Goovyer.

He said the Thais, four women and one transvestite – none of them under age – were performing of their own will and were paid Bt1,500 daily, He said he also earned Bt75 per minute of sex chats between the girls and clients, who want to talk apart from watching.

All nine suspects have been charged with distributing pornographic material, and the two Thai men – Kittisak Saetang and Issara Rakwiset – additionally with drug use, after their urine tests proved positive.


100,000 baht per day x 30.30 = $30,300

$30,300 x 365 = $11,060,600 per year


And the defense will be, “I didn’t think it was in violation of Thai law”

yeah, that should work
