    The Future isn't now

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 29/08/2019

    » A term I keep encountering is "The Future". You see it on billboards everywhere. Stadiums, department stores, condos, supermarkets, restaurants, theatres, whatever. They eschew the current autos and mobile phones and computers. Space rockets are only a generation or two away.

    Beam me up!

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 23/08/2019

    » Interest in extraterrestrial things (and beings) make a comeback to the Thai collective consciousness, thanks to asteroid 2006 QQ23 flying by and a viral video in which a local man, who claims to be a medium of Pluto God, warns humanity of 2020 doomsday in an alien tongue. This got us thinking about the local interest in UFOs and aliens, and how Thailand is linked to alien stories in a way that you may not be aware of. We aren't saying we believe in Pluto God or trying to convince you one way or another but there are many pieces of evidence (of varying degrees of credibility) of alleged alien visits to the Land Of Smiles and they are too fascinating not to share.

    Who knew space could be so shallow?

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 21/07/2017

    » To be honest, there's a lot that Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets -- the latest space opera from French director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Taken) -- does well. Its universe, filled with diverse alien creatures and sprawling cities, brings to mind the likes of Star Wars, so rich with life and culture. The diversity of the aliens makes the action equally exciting, as the esoteric weapons and technology of each race come into play in unexpected ways. It's also quite humorous, with a surprisingly light-hearted script for a movie about genocide and military conspiracies.

    Ruling on rape

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 10/06/2019

    » Rape always brings with it devastation -- to the victims, their families and even the public that learns of such crimes. The condemnation is loud, a cry for harsh punishment up to the penalty of death -- a solution many believe can put an end to rape.
