The Thais are are paradoxical people. Despite being outwardly calm and friendly following Buddhist values, they are prone to swift bouts of terrible violence. You see it time and time again if you spend any time there.

In the UK you might have a ruck with someone, your mates break it up and you go home and sober up. In Thailand you might well end up with a machete through your head.

There are cunts everywhere you go unfortunately. I know what you mean about the Thais but the English are no better:
