huh. I thought Rama was the king of Thailand. When did this guy take over?
2003-05-27 02:08:58 PM  

How would you pronounce that?

2003-05-27 02:09:49 PM  
This guy will get rich from this, because he was able to patent the technique. They have been trying to use aircraft to make rain for years, and when they finally figure it out - this guy is in for a payday.
Interesting idea:
He wants to use aircraft to "seed" clouds and make it rain.


The guy is totally insane, does too many drugs and this is a waste of a patent.

Hey, I saw this episode of Stargate... oh, wait.

/Adds "get life" to list of things to do today
2003-05-27 02:10:12 PM  
I thought it said THE KING, as in Elvis.
2003-05-27 02:11:25 PM  
still no cure for I before E except after C.
2003-05-27 02:11:32 PM  
It's called "a hose."
2003-05-27 02:11:42 PM  
Shudda been the Rain King. HA!
X-files rocks.

/got < than nothin.
2003-05-27 02:11:43 PM

2003-05-27 02:13:49 PM  
Thai King

Sounds like a restaurant name. Mmmm, thai food!
2003-05-27 02:16:22 PM  
Except instead of acid rain, he makes curry rain. "It burns, it burns!"
2003-05-27 02:18:03 PM  
What's the mystery? I piss on you from my royal balcony! Look at it raining! I must patent this!
2003-05-27 02:18:43 PM  
It's good to be Thai King.
2003-05-27 02:18:59 PM  
Can anyone tell me what the hell "suxors" means? I think I saw something else like it on another article response thingy...."haxors" maybe? Enlighten me please? Thanks in advance.
2003-05-27 02:20:24 PM  
but will mysterious rain device be better than eternal life device?

Alex Chiu 0wns!

Actually, seeding clouds has been done for awhile. It looks like he is just patenting a better technique for it. Good for him. 4 patents when as king, all he really has to do is sit around and pretend to govern.
2003-05-27 02:22:44 PM  

Wow, for a god you are a long way from being l33t.

u r teh sux0rs lol!!!!!11!!!1!!!!
2003-05-27 02:23:20 PM  
I think its pronounced something like "poomy-pon." Don't ask why -- something lost in the translation from Thai script to English, I guess.

Either way, the King's an ass kicker. Not only did he invent the rain machine, he's an accomplished jazz clarinet player, and wrote the country's national anthem.
2003-05-27 02:28:13 PM  
me too, lipspinach, me too.
2003-05-27 02:29:33 PM  
Now that's a 21st century King! (historians will note the irony)
2003-05-27 02:30:44 PM  
Fer gawds sake, where the hell are the Boobies posts! Let's go on a FARK boycott until more Boobies appear.
2003-05-27 02:31:21 PM  
Cabes, As a noted historian I have noted that irony in my notebook.
2003-05-27 02:32:52 PM  

suxors means "sucks"
roxors means "rocks"
Haxors means "hackers"

it's all hacker language

Just great. Now nations will be getting into water disputes before it ever hits the ground. Sabotoging crops with too much/little water will become the new international sport.
2003-05-27 02:35:21 PM  
FalloutBoy (if that's your REAL name) I have noted that historians take notes. Thus, I note that this has been noted.

N.B. Do not hit the bong after your first clever post. It all goes downhill from there.

i have a weather machine in my basement between the 8 track player, and the ab-dominizer machine.

2003-05-27 02:51:49 PM  
I wish he would invent a new and interesting new Fark Link
2003-05-27 02:52:32 PM  
On hot summer days,we put the oscillating sprinkler on the roof. Pretty impressive.
2003-05-27 02:53:25 PM  
Fer gawds sake, where the hell are the Boobies posts! Let's go on a FARK boycott until more Boobies appear.

There is never a Boobie drought on Total Fark. In fact our Boobie posts have gone up, mostly with headlines to the effect of "To end the Boobie drought".
2003-05-27 02:56:37 PM  
LOL! He's a geek! GEEK! :D :D :D

Is this just a Thai patent, or does it apply to the whole world?

/Knows next to nothing about patent laws.
2003-05-27 03:00:36 PM  
Didn't Sir August de Wynter already come up with something like this?
2003-05-27 03:02:38 PM  
Didn't Simon Bar Sinister once try and take over the world with a rain making device??

Of course, Underdog saved the day..
2003-05-27 03:03:13 PM  
Simon Bar Sinister saysssss, "Make it rain"
2003-05-27 03:04:31 PM  
Judging by that, I would say that the Thai King is up to something....devious? hmmm?
2003-05-27 03:06:25 PM  
Bush can't even find his own ass with both hands.
2003-05-27 03:06:49 PM  
let's see bush come up with some patents! seriously though
2003-05-27 03:07:15 PM  
FARK gives me cliche poisoning... :-/
2003-05-27 03:08:44 PM
