Title: Where can I buy a Lao tablet?

I've heard nothing but good things about Lao engineering and I was wondering where I can pick up this latest piece of technology. Also is there a LaoPride app for the Lao tablet?

Thanks,

Cowboy

Aw man what is that thing are you sure it's good? Why not just get a google tablet, Lao tablet obviously can't compete. Lao engineering lol I can't tell if you were joking or not

You always complain about the Westernization of SE Asia. This is a product designed by and for the Lao people and you recommend I buy an American tablet instead? Outrageous!

You Siamese just can't accept that Lao is set to become one of the most technologically advanced societies on the planet. The Lao Nation has already proven itself capable of great engineering feats with the construction of several hydroelectric dams.

We will start seeing TVs and cars with a Lao brand name just like we see brands like Samsung and Toyota.

Lol, I'm not even Siamese man, what the hell? What made you assume I was Siamese?



I'm Lao-American. I was born in America. Here in America, the Lao and Thai communities often intermingle and yes I do understand Thai people quite well.

Yes I'm complaining about the westernization of SE Asia but you are an American so you are already westernized, which is why I don't see a problem with you buying an American product. I'm not looking down on Lao products, but obviously a google tablet is better.

I don't even look down on Lao people, but to say it's becoming technologically advanced doesn't seem so true as of yet. Maybe in the future. I hope not though. I've had enough of facebook using new-age prissies.

I live in the USA and I'm technologically adept and I don't use any facebook crap or social media prissy sh-t or anything.

Lao becoming technically advanced will only make them suit wearing krathoey ladyboys who attend business meetings and check facebook updates. I say we are better off riding on buffalo backs and returning home to our wife and kids and eating Larb with sticky rice in our wooden shack than going to some gay ass shopping mall to buy some f-ckin prissy tablet sh-t and eat some American hamburgers.

I thought you were half-Thai half White. I thought you spent most of your life in Thailand.

No, I said that my mom was Lao. I have lived in Thailand, and I have family members in Isan which is not really Thai anyways. I have never lived in Central Thailand and have no relatives there. I'm from around Pakse, Champassak btw.

* sigh * . . .
After all the defending of American intentions I did over the past few days ...

I do hope East Asian countries manage to hold onto their various cultures as much as possible.  The world is better off with more diversity rather than less, as long as there is sufficient compassion and understanding between the various people.

And I'm sure Lao people have a great technical potential.  But I hope they don't mess things up with industry as much as we did for a while and continue to do in some places. 

The local culture and natural environment are precious.

Let us know how that tablet works for you if you manage to get one.

Honestly I don't think Laos or any other small country needs to mess with industrialization. Laos should just stick to Gross National Happiness or something like Bhutan. Forget about GDP. It's too small to compete with the rest of the world and if it tried to convert its land for industrial use it would just be destroying precious natural reserves. Laos was better off without those BS hydroelectric dams. Do you know how many villages were flooded?

The Lao government never cared though, all they care about is money. They will exploit their own people for a buck.

I don't think those tribes need electricity anyways. They've been surviving for centuries without it. Why not just leave Laos like Papua New Guinea or Bhutan? I don't get why the government is trying to turn Laos into Thailand or Vietnam. That's just not who Lao people are.

I completely agree with you. I mostly made this topic because I found the idea of a Lao tablet preposterous and was hoping to find more information about its production.

Are you in Lao or Thailand or back in the states? We could settle our differences in the ring and use LP as an avenue to advertise. The proceeds from the fight would go to the needy. What is your weight class and what fighting systems do you know? I am willing to challenge in a bout of MMA, muay thai, muay lao, or VN or Western boxing.

Was the above post sarcasm or were you serious? Let's just say I have the physical build of typical a Lao person so you are probably way bigger than me and we won't be in the same weight class. Plus, the only combat systems I know are stab stab and run and aim and shoot so I don't think I would do well in a fist fight.  This is not cowardice it's just me acknowledging my own strengths and weaknesses

I have nothing against you personally but would love to  fight for a fundraiser.

Let's just say that if I did MMA I'd probably be a bantamweight or a flyweight. But I don't train and physically I'm not very short I just don't have a large frame like white people do

Title: Re: Where can I buy a Lao tablet?

I'm 5'10" and probably weigh 150 pounds at this point because I haven't been training and I've had a stomach problem for more than two months. I'm hoping my gastrointenstinal issues will heal up soon because I want to train to on another twenty pounds and hopefully participate in some amateur fights in the US or perhaps Cambodia.

The problem with MMA is how fighters will go to great lengths to cut their weight down for the weigh in. Also the American nanny state forbids bareknuckle fights, groin strikes, or eye gouging. Fights to the death are also prohibited even though there are longstanding traditions of dueling going back centuries across the entirety of Eurasia - from England to Japan.

Well the eye gouges and groin strike rules are for fighter safety. Fights to the death? Many would consider that brutal but if 2 people agree to it then that's fine with me. More deaths are needed to mitigate global warming. They should make American hipsters fight to the death to cull their population. I've considered training martial arts for practical purposes but I lack both the time and money.

I understand completely. I would never enter a fight that allows eye gouges or groin strikes. But I also don't consider myself to be a warrior. Many Japanese fighters and some American fighters have said that they would prefer fights that allow eye gouges and groin kicks. A few fighters want to fight to the death because it gives them a very unique opportunity to cultivate themselves mentally and physically. Imagine going into the arena knowing that if you fail, you will die. I can see how fighting under such circumstances would lead to  spiritual transcendence.  Because at stake is not just a prize and money, but your very life.
