Making Money in Thailand: A Retiree's Guide (Thailand Retirement) (Volume 2)
Making Money in Thailand: A Retiree's Guide (Thailand Retirement) (Volume 2)
by Godfree Roberts
Edition: Paperback
Price: $11.66
6 used & new from $10.49

3.0 out of 5 stars Best to have no morals., August 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
1> Write a book called "how to make money in Thailand". 2> Offer courses to people who are unable to make it in the western world. 3> Buy up their property when they go bust.

Foreigners need an outside income ($2000/month) and $25,000 to retire in Thailand. At least this book will warn you how corrupt and dangerous the locals are. Misses the most important lesson: it is best if you have no morals.

3.0 out of 5 stars very tiny pieces, December 31, 2013
This review is from: Nanoblock Space Shuttle (Toy)
I was not able to finish assembling miniature, as it has tiny pieces that are very fiddly to put together. I would have given nanoblocks a higher score but you need small hands to put shuttle together. "Detailed" instruction are 12 pictures with writing that require a magnifying glass to read. I would only recommend this model for people with lots of patience...

4.0 out of 5 stars Sims3: IF lets you travel 300 years into the future, November 25, 2013
Sims3: ItF lets you travel 300 years into the future to see and use advance technology like jetpacks, hover boards (really kool) together with the skill to build your own robot. Tip: wait til you can use happiness points to buy the time remote control if you want to visit the other timelines. tip2: sell PlumBots buy clicking on the blue circle next to other 'bots. It only took me 9 hrs to build my own PlumBot that was self aware to "win" my life's dream, so in all I found the game not very challenging.

1.0 out of 5 stars Contains STEAM, October 11, 2012
BE aware that the game engine has steam/valve hidden within, won't even admit upfront that it updates automatically.
Steam are taking control of the games you bought, and forcing you to install them when and how they deem fit, in the manner they choose, and updating them when they say, and making it impossible to receive any kind of service when something goes wrong, if you read gaming forums all over the net, there are people who are experiencing unplayable games after downloading them through steam, and the problems they are having are real, yet they get no support when the problems arise.
