Since ThanongK found this new toy a few days ago, the twits’ corner at The Nation has become totally surreal. Here is a sample, of course to be read from bottom to top:

tukky_nt: RT @ReutersWorldCup: Spain 1 Honduras 0 #worldcup
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:53:56 AM
ThanongK: that’s my thought for the night.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:52:07 AM
NattieKhe: @veen_NT Finally I decided to watch it Haha Spainnnn :D
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:51:55 AM
NattieKhe: RT @veen_NT: Spain 1-0 Honduras (David Villa 17min) // Awesome!!
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:49:51 AM
veen_NT: G OOOOOO AL 1-0 to Spain
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:47:24 AM
ThanongK: Some 40 million Thais are at ground zero of the Tower of babel. They live below the phor phiang level.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:38:26 AM
ThanongK: Amazing Thailand! we’re back to building the Tower of Babel.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:37:07 AM
ThanongK: We collapsed in 1997 after building a tower of babel for over a decade. Ever since we have recovered to stand on our feet.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:36:47 AM
ThanongK: Thailand has veered away from its phor phiang spirit to embrace the tower of babel.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:35:49 AM
ThanongK: @vahncitis I don’t buy this perfect market theory. It has proven a failure time and again. the Chicago school of economics is dead.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:34:08 AM
ThanongK: RT @vahncitis: @ThanongK Demand/supply in free market will automatically regulate the production and consumption of a product. Thus, sufficiency follows.

ThanongK: If we navigate along the watta cycle, we’ll have the best chance of achieving equilibrium more sustainability.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:31:00 AM
ThanongK: Then this cycle is repeat again endlessly. The trick is to understand this cycle or watta in buddhistic term.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:29:49 AM
veen_NT: Match to kick off soon
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:29:42 AM
ThanongK: all things are subject to three characteristics of coming into being, trying to hold on to its status, and then passing away.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:28:50 AM
pracob: Spain vs Honduras Match Preview: Both team need to win but only one can win and two can draw. #worldcup (via @veen_NT)
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:28:43 AM
ThanongK: In the phor phiang mode, we move along the horizontal line with the cycle of nature.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:27:29 AM
ThanongK: Eventually, the tower can’t reach the sky. An accident or a mistake is bound to happen. Then disaster strikes.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:25:39 AM
ThanongK: They will have to add even more levels, not knowing why.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:24:56 AM
FrisoPee: @veen_NT oke! Hope spain will win. But after all… this world cup is all about suprises. My prediction: Honduras will win with 2 – 1.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:24:44 AM
ThanongK: But when we keep on adding new levels to the tower, we are creating burden to our children and grandchildren.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:24:43 AM
ThanongK: This is rather a tower of babel mode in disguise. During the process of building and enjoying living in the tower, everybody is happy.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:23:57 AM
veen_NT: @FrisoPee – my mind says 3-1 to Spain but let z.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:23:39 AM
ThanongK: In this dialectical mode, the western mind thinks that mankind is improving in an ever-lasting mode?
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:22:36 AM

That was today in the wee hours. I took this down in a fun mood. Since then, my mood has turned sour. Another item of note this afternoon:

GlobalMouthful: @veen_NT farang guy just went mental in Emporium. Smashing everthing with a golf club. Finally overpowered by cops and security guards.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 5:39:42 PM

Whatever motivated the fellow, I wonder.
Could have been me, except that I don’t have a golf club, but have been feeling like wielding one after only a couple of hours at Immigration yet again.
Read on.

  1. Following @tulsathit’s recommendation I subscribed to @ThanongK. It lasted for 30 minutes. After reading his metaphorical drivel I unsubscribed. I guess if you work at the Nation you must sign an agreement with the Government to make references to words like “sufficiency” and have an occasional dig at “Western thinking”.
