You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the president drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the president knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it."

    » In 1997, Atis Ruchirawat translated the script of the original Star Wars trilogy for subbing and dubbing in Thai. He didn't need the script, he said. He could recite the dialogue more or less by heart. He even knows the words Greedo and Jabba the Hutt say in their fictional language, though he does not care to speculate whether Greedo or Han Solo shot first.

    It's time to talk about mental illness

    Life, Pimrapee Thungkasemvathana, Published on 31/03/2015

    » My family has a history of mental illness. My father has eight siblings. His elder sister and youngest brother were sick for a long time. They were not diagnosed or treated until much later in their lives. My aunt, now 61, lives with bipolar disorder. She is on medication. She works and she travels. She is strong. Years ago, she taught my brother and I to speak Mandarin. Years from now, she will teach my nephews and nieces to add and subtract. Now, some days are good. She gets up. Other days, she says she feels hopeless even in her sleep. We don't talk about it very much, almost not at all.
