Sozzled Somchai Confuses Rice Paddy For Liquor Barn

A drunk Thai guy followed GPS to what he thought was the next liquor store, but ended up ball-bearings deep in a Korat rice paddy.

The mid-40s driver, who was not named in Thai media reports, was on one hell of a bender from Nakhon Ratchasima to Khon Kaen in his Mazda 3 Thursday, even though he didn’t actually know the way.

So he fired up Google Maps and away he went. But, in his state, all the green and red lines blurred and he thought maybe Google Assistant was coming on to him. To heck with Khon Kaen, let’s get some more beer.

So Sozzled Somchai made a hard right, confusing the smell of rice with hops & barley, and ended up in the mud of an inundated rice field. No problem. Just drive faster.

Sure, the wheels bogged down, but nothing a little more pedal-pushing won’t fix.

Eventually, Drunk Racer couldn’t go any further, so he decided to sleep it off. Which he did until afternoon, when Farmer Jaidee was less than happy to find a Mazda 3 in the middle of his next crop.

It took more than an hour of pushing and wooden boards to get the Mazda back on the road, although the Korat Kops might have something to say about whether he makes it to Khon Kaen.

A landlord was shocked after he checked his home and found the previous tenant had left behind a pet crocodile.

Niam Ruampol, 70, visited the rental property in Samut Songkhram, central Thailand on Monday night after being told the resident had moved out.

He peered inside a newly built one-meter high concrete pool that was covered with plastic and recoiled with horror when he saw the killer reptile inside.

The frightened landlord called the animal catchers to evacuate the reptile from the property. They first threw a towel on its head to block its vision before wrestling with the beast and carrying it outside.

Air Pollution Before And After Lockdown

Video footage shows how clean the air is after three months of coronavirus lockdown in Bangkok.

The tropical skyline was clouded in a toxic smog made of harmful PM2.5 particles at the start of the year, caused by construction, cars and agricultural fires.

However, with many projects on hold and builders sent back home to neighbouring countries, pollution has dropped.

A blanket ban on tourists since the end of March – which is still active – has also decimated the number of cars, taxis, minivans and coaches on the road.

Astonishing footage taken this morning (June 30) in the Huai Khwang district of the capital shows the striking difference.
