American Beaten Up for Playing Hero in Domestic Dispute

American beaten up for playing hero in domestic dispute

Thais usually don’t interfere in domestic disputes between husband and wife, boyfriend/girlfriend etc. They may take a video and post it on Facebook, but that’s it.
No matter whether or not you agree with this lack of moral courage, here’s a good reason why foreigners might also not want to get involved when the shit hits the fan between Thai male and Thai female.
A 67-year-old American expat identified only as “Bob” got beaten up badly by a Thai man after he interfered in a domestic dispute the man had with his “ex-wife” who happened to work as a “waitress” at the bar where he was drinking.

Thai Lottery Results – January 17, 2017


The Thai government lottery is the only kind of “gambling” legally allowed in Thailand and taken very seriously by the Thai people.
Lottery tickets are pre-printed in Thailand so you don’t really get to pick your own numbers as in lottery systems in the West. Instead, you select your preferred six-digit “lucky number” from an assortment at a sales booth or a hawker’s tray of pre-printed tickets (see image above). They’re sold by legions of street vendors nationwide in the days before the next draw.
The official ticket price is 80 Baht but agents usually sell them at around 100 Baht.
The winning numbers (and there are dozens) are drawn live on national television twice a month, usually on the 1st and on the 16th. Only when a national holiday falls on these dates the lottery draw is carried out a day later.

For the wannabe-Baht-millionaires among our readers who are as passionate about the Thai lottery as the Thais themselves, here are the latest Thai lottery results and all lucky numbers. Feel free to bookmark this page to make sure you never miss the latest draw!
