What you are stating is not possible. If the "bullet part" was lodged inside the barrel from a previous round and not expelled from the ignition of the cartridge it came from then a second charge would blow the barrel, possibly the chamber. It would not be propelled from the second charge. If the "bullet part" was smaller than the bore of the barrel it would have easily been expelled by the prior cartridge.
Even dirt in a barrel let alone a metal object stuck inside of it will cause chamber pressure to rise to the point it will burst the barrel. I have personally witnessed two occasions. One where a person incorrectly loaded a 20 gauge shell into a much bigger 12 gouge gun barrel. Upon opening the gun, he thought he had not loaded it and put a 12 gauge shell in and fired it. The chamber pressure blew the sideplates of the gun and split the barrel. That was of a shotgun which has a much larger bore than a rifle and much lower chamber pressure than created in the much smaller diameter rifle. I have seen where a person incorrectly loaded a 12 gauge shell. He thought he had not put the shotgun pellets in. He had actually forgot the wad. These are small pellets going through a very large bore and here again, the chamber pressure rose to the point the barrel of the gun was thrown in the air over 30 feet, the chamber exploded and the force broke the stock of the gun.
If you put any solid object inside a rifle barrel, particularly one that is lodged in the barrel from a prior shell, any firing of that gun will not eject the object but rather blow the gun apart.
It seems to be the Thai thing to make exceptions to the rules as and when it suits them.
They will learn quickly that most foreigners won't go for that kind of reasoning and investment won't materialise.
The moment they restrict foreigners to buy only new condos, the market will fall flat as everyone will understand they'll never sell again (and those chances were slim already).
Hence why I opened this topic. Ireland's history has seem atrocities, famine and prolonged military conflict yet so did Vietnam (although Communism can force unity), but still wonder why the opposition to one nation forming.
It’s a fair question @Jamey27 and I’ll explain my position on this.
First of all I’m not in abject fear. I personally have little to fear and never really did. I’m not in the high age group and fit and healthy. Im fully vaccinated and protect myself with basic controls such as keeping out of busy enclosed places and wearing a mask on public transport. Due to the nature of Covid, where you can be contagious but not know it, unfortunately this means I do test myself before visiting my elderly parents.
However, I do have many friends, some elderly with underlying health conditions in Thailand I would not wish to see die 10 or more years too early. Thailand is getting to a position where it can and should open but it’s not there yet. It’s population is only 35% fully vaccinated and many with Sinovac which is not so great with the Delta variant. When Thailand had zero Covid it made sense to protect the Thai people in tourist areas from incoming foreigners. Now the risk is endemic in the population. As such, any increased movement of people around the country simply give the virus the opportunity to spread.
In my home country of the U.K. the population is now 85% vaccinated and have started a booster program as the elderly people who were vaccinated more than six months ago are finding their protection is falling. Back in August the country was about 65%-70% fully vaccinated and took the decision to fully open. Over the past two months we have seen what fully opening does to a population where 65%-70% is fully vaccinated. That’s twice Thailand’s current rate by the way. We have seen case numbers rise from 1,000 a day to 50,000. Deaths rose from 5 a day to 150 a day. I would not wish that to happen to Thailand. It’s clear that activities like bars, restaurants and especially nightclubs and enclosed bars are the big problem areas. While many such venues in Thailand are outside bars and restaurants; which is a massive help, too many nightclubs, massage parlours, Ago-go bars aren’t. Schools incidentally are also a massive problem as nearly all kids don’t have the vaccine and can carry the virus home to multi-generation households in Thailand. All that said, I do think the outdoor living, the open air bars and restaurants and the hotter weather, all work in Thailand’s favour. People travelling on tour boats, sitting on the beach and using swimming pools is very low risk
I fully appreciate the need to get things moving and it has always been a balance of economy and healthcare. For me, this just all feels about 2-3 months too soon. It’s just a pity that the vaccination didn’t start 2-3 months earlier and then things would feel a lot safer. The worse thing that could possibly happen to the Thai people and the economy, is to open up and then have massive Covid clusters in tourist areas (both Thai and foreign areas I mean) and then have to reimpose restrictions. That would kill people and kill the economy.
Believe me when I say this is not fear. This is experience the world has gained over the past two years nearly. I’m not aware of any country that has fully opened with 35% fully vaccinated and high percentage with Sinovac. I’m also not aware of any country that has fully opened up and not seen an increase in cases, even with very high rates of vaccination. The only country that seems to be confusing the hell out of people is India. There is clearly something significant going on there??
If I was making the decisions, and I’m glad I’m not, I would do the following:
Open the country but significantly restrict numbers allowed in indoor restaurants and massage parlours etc.
No indoor bars or nightclubs should be allowed to open at this time.
Vaccinate as quick as possible. Cut the paperwork for approvals etc and get doing 1 million a day or more.
Prepare for an increase in case numbers, hospitalisations and deaths.
And finally, Pray!
