Now, this is super-highly offensive to Thais, but the comments do seem a little over the top. The man depicted in the movie is the king of Thailand, and he's regarded pretty much as a demigod. I hope somebody sets the US embassy on fire over this, that'd be hilarious.

Youtube is blocked here in Thailand now because of this. Don't see that changing for a while.

Ah, freedom of speech, it's not for everyone.

Wow. Those reactions by the Thai people were something around the lines to what a Muslim would do on a video of Muhammad.

He was Swiss, and he got like ten years.

Man, I like Boomer (as I like to call him), and he's done an incredible job holding together this chaotic-ass country for sixty-some years, but it's funny how the new government has to crack down so hard on lese majeste infringements when a while back the king himself said he didn't really completely approve of those laws.

Not too long ago I fumbled my change in a bathroom and just caught it with my feet, and a dude wanted to beat me up. I just barely reasoned my way out of it by comparing the impact that the soles of my shoes would make on the king's face versus leaving the coins under a toilet bowl while people **** on him all day. I got some serious glares, but I came out alive. It's not a healthy obsession that the Thais have, considering Boomer's age.
