    From poop to drinking water, Bill Gates drinks it to prove it is clean (video)

    In poor communities around the world, human waste gets into the drinking water causing disease & death, now a machine solves the problem by turning this waste into drinking water.

    Source: www.bangkokpost.com

    I can now sell my poop and help many people drink safe clean water and have safe clean electricity. With the profit that I will make (in my dreams) I can invite all my friends out and buy them drinks like whiskey and water (made from my poop). Bill Gates is the best.

    Paris attack: Gunmen identified,one suspects surrenders, other spotted

    (Latest: Photos of two suspects released, youngest suspect surrenders, brothers seen) French anti-terror police launched a late-night raid in a northeastern city Wednesday in a frantic manhunt for three masked gunmen, two of them brothers, who killed 12 people at a satirical weekly in Paris.

    Source: www.bangkokpost.com

    Thailand should learn some valuable lessons from this Tragedy. The Thai government or anyone for this matter has the right to restrict the Freedom of Speech. I do say now that everyone has the right to speak about the royal family or any matter that they wish. I call on Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha 
    to wake up and give everyone the rights and freedoms granted to them at birth. 


    The French, Americans, British, Australians etc. will not accept controls over their rights given to them at birth, from anyone/any government including Thailand.
