Have a click and a look (don't forget to turn the volume up on your computer)

Check out:

For lots of information about accommodation, bars and restaurants; as well as travel information and galleries. A good resource for the great beaches of Thong Nai Pan on the lush, unspoiled island of Koh Phangan.

Burn After Reading

Burn After Reading is not a Coen brother's classic like Fargo or No Country For Old Men but still more than worth a watch. The plot has all the twists and turns of a French farce and the performances of John Malkovitch, Brad Pitt and Francis McDormand are excellent. It's dark and ironic. Who else could think of tying together a divorce comedy with bumbling CIA intrigue? The dialogue is sharp and the film moves along nicely to it's bizarre climax.

The link above should lead you to a free streaming site. If it doesn't work, try using Firefox and installing Flash Player 9.


Nothing to do with Thong Nai Pan but still slightly funny

FINANCIAL MARKET BAILOUT – A simpler real world example.
Young Chuck moved to Texas and bought a Donkey from a farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the Donkey the next day. The next day he drove up and said, 'Sorry son, but I have some bad News, the donkey died.'
Chuck replied, 'Well, then just give me my money back.'
The farmer said, 'Can't do that. I went and spent it already.'
Chuck said, 'Ok, then, just bring me the dead donkey.'
The farmer asked, 'What ya gonna do with him?'
Chuck said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'
The farmer said You can't raffle off a dead donkey!'
Chuck said, 'Sure I can Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead.'
A month later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, 'What happened with that dead donkey?'
Chuck said, 'I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $998.' The farmer said, 'Didn't anyone complain?'
Chuck said, 'Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back.'
Chuck now works for Goldman Sachs!!
