so  if the park said  no one has to wear a mask in our  zoo thai  law  would  not  apply eh

Have you been on the sauce?

Thai law isn't over-riding Safari Park rules because they both say the exact same thing!  As I said, "You can be unmasked when "in close proximity to others" if they're family and you live together, as those in your photo apparently do, just as Safari Park rules and Thai law allow."

do they tell covid  to  pose to or  just  not to spread whilst  photo is  being taken😄

It is just a photo that is controlled to where the family who are together any how get to pose with no mask on for their family experience. The girls who take the pictures stay masked and again it is controlled and from my stand point is a good memory to have for now and the future. Small free one and the others offered at a price when you finish the zoo tour. I see no foul in this at all. And BTW, I was only charged the Thai going rate to get in.

Masks are to protect others from you, not to protect you from others. That's how it works.

What he was fretting about is that his wife had already tried to get the Swede to put his mask on and been ignored, apart from the Swede's wife taking her photo just to add insult to injury.

I'm not condoning the Thai's actions, but if they'd done that to my partner I'd have voiced my displeasure in no uncertain terms and if fat boy Swede hadn't put his mask back on PDQ he'd have been in the medical tent having my shoe removed from his rectum.

Was the head bopper Thai? I didn't read it was a Thai or another falang. Nevertheless it doesn't appear he was bopper very seriously.  Most  has got his feelings hurt. 

The bandage looks like it was more for effect than an injury.

Perfectly reasonable - when taking the photos the only people you're "in close proximity" to are your family, then you mask up afterwards.

See above.  You hardly need to be Einstein to work out the reason why.

Absolutely and a wonderful memory that lasts forever. For this one we had my wife's younger sister and her 5 year old daughter from Bangkok, my son, my youngest daughter, my oldest daughter who lives in Bangkok now, and my wife. Things like this you cannot put a price on and it is very well contained not dangerous to others. I give it an A+ even though for the nice picture in a frame was at a cost, but unbelievably only a cou-ple hundred baht. So all a win win and zero complaints.

Apparently, although I think that's assumed from the Swede's Thai wife's post on facebook.

The "bandage" is totally for effect - being taped loosely to his hair it's not possibly doing anything at all.

Jeez - you made sure you crammed enough of you into the picture to get your money's worth!

I'd get a copy done, though, as normally they use the cheapest possible print paper so rather than lasting forever they normally fade after a few weeks 😱

Thanks, I know the article didn't say it was a Thai. So the wife is saying her wimpy husband was beat-up by a Thai enforcing the law. She's the one that needs to have some sense beat into her.

Do you have any common sense ?

Can you not think about it and work it out for yourself ?

Two people posing for a photo together are likely to be friends and with each other , maybe even living together , so, there would be no need to them both to keep apart

Nope, real glass, plastic frame and the picture quality is good. This looks to last a good long time into the future.

I even have pictures of my kids at Siam Park when they were 4 and 6 yrs old put onto plates that still are pretty good quality today. Only bad thing is the glue and so i need to reglue the back to the plate. But that is well over 15 years to date now.

wheres  any proof  for the entire  story?

When your local village headman came to visit your house in the village last week , he was lucky that you were in at home, rather than being in Bangkok watching a Dolphin show and noticing them selling snacks to the other  people watching the show .

ok so why do two  people in a  car (married as if marriage  has anything to do with it anyway) have to wear a mask? These are the govt rules here as  far asI remember and ridiculed when they announced it

... things have probably got a lot better since I last had anything like that done, many moons ago 😴.

A pity he didn't have one of your plates handy to break over this guy's head ... 😠

Why? 

If there was an exception for those who are married, then you'd have to stop the car to check for a marriage licence ... instead it's a simple rule, easily checked, with nobody asking stupid questions like "define close proximity" or "define married".

if they do, then it's obviously for consumption when not "in close proximity to others", which is perfectly reasonable for everybody.

nah its  perfectly reasonable not to sell it  thus  removing the chance of  mask removal

But its  ok for a  family  outing to all remove masks  for a  photo, it  all makes so  much sense and surely  they would  have to also prove they were  married otherwise  mask should stay  on same as yer car  rules you mentioned

The rule stated that anyone outside their home must wear a mask , although people driving alone in their car were exempt from wearing a mask , of course the nit pickers were picking holes in that rule and looking for an angle to yell abuse

ive already STATED that one person doesnt have to in a  car, Im questioning why two  marrie d people and more judging  by the photos at safari world  can remove a mask but once in a  car they MUST BY LAW all wear a   mask

What part of "You have to mask up when in a car regardless of whether you're living together / the same family or not to avoid delays for everyone else and make checks quicker and simpler  -  it's obviously impossible to know without stopping a vehicle and checking every ID if those in a car are all living together, so to speed things up and simplify things it's a blanket rule for everyone." did you not understand or do you have any rational disagreement with?

There are hardly any such checks, but if there were and the law was applied then why "married"?

What proof?

Legally or just a religious blessing?

Civil partners and LGBT couples?

Only parents or children too?

What about children living away, visiting parents or each other?

The permutations are endless, so the simple solution is the best - everyone.

Car journeys are inside to the extreme , two people sitting very close together in a small enclosed space for a prolonged period of time, could be for ten hours + sat together .

   Taking a mask off in the zoo  for a quick photo would be outdoors and for a few seconds , which would be minimal risk , compared to a car journey which would be a severe risk

and? it  makes  no sense to remove a  mask for any reason at  all and they shouldnt be  selling   food either and if having a photo ( not at all necessary or  needed) is a  reason to remove a  mask for even 1  second then it  really does make no sense, no sense at  all.
