    No, just digital color manipulation. Infra-Red produces a black sky. (Space is very cold.)

    Lol so which one is it O_O

    I'm looking at a collection of infra-red pictures here.

    For the most part, you are correct DrStranglove in that the sky will show up really dark, but the picture that I have specifically linked to shows a white sky instead. Could the sky be lighter on say... a really hot day at noon?

    Infra red is the measurement of heat. The sky is VERY cold. (Hence ice on the wings of aircraft.) No matter what the surface temp is.

    Infra red would reflect the temp of the various parts of the cars. For example, the engine area would be vastly more warm then the roof or doors.

    I hope so :)

    Last year and this year I was in BKK only for a stopover.
    Arrived at 7am in the morning, get a taxi to come to you (and due to the demonstration it wasn't easy :D ) and at 6pm I was already out of Thailand again :D

    But I'm in BKK for work from December to May. So I'll have more time the meetings.


    Hm, I know, it's not very polite to talk about owners and number plates. But I noticed that many cars have 11 on the plate :)

    Testarossa=11
    Diablo=11
    Carrera GT=1111

    Do they all belong to the same guy? Or is 11 just a lucky number for Thai people? :)

    1 and 9 are counted as lucky numbers for Thais.

    Look closely mate. That white Testarossa and black Diablo are wearing the very same license plate!?! Thats because the owner took that plate out from Testarossa and then put it on his newly acquired Diablo. Both cars are belonging to my good brother, Patpong.

    Hello everybody!!

    I do not know if you remember me, I am Enrique from Spain. I went to Thailand the last two years with Thai friend and enjoyed your events and parties (California Lunch, Tong lo sunday meeting in Sturbucks cofee shop, etc).

    I would like to invite all friends in Thailand to a BIG Ferrari event we will have in Spain this year. I know we are very far from you, but you are welcome to come, if you wish! At the moment two Thai friends are on the participant list, so it would be nice to have a team from Thailand!!

    I give you the program, if you wish to come, do not hesitate to contact me.

    Thanks a lot, and I hope to come back Thailand soon!!

    Going to be in Thailand on around August 1st. Have absolutely no plans. Landing in Bangkok.

    Should I expect non-stop rain? Are any regions worth/not worth going to around this time?

    Thanks

    Nothing. Not sure how long or where I'll be. I'm actually only heading to Bangkok because I have to. Doing Tibet/Nepal, and you can't really get anywhere from Nepal without going via Bangkok. Since I'll be in Thailand, might as well do something.

    Few days probably, around beginning of August. Depends if we arrive and go directly to Burma and come back, or do Thailand before going to Burma.
