You will get sick of being wet during Songkran.  And if you are a Farang, you will be a prime target.

Best to hole up with some good books and not leave your domicile.

Note to self, visit Bangkok only in the week after Songkran. The only time you can be sure everyone had a bath recently.

World Pooh Sticks Championship

They need to wipe better.

Or is this about a stick with pooh on the end of it?

Oh my... I can honestly say I've seen the Beaver, OK one myself.  Why is flinging poo a party?  It tells you just how exciting that state really is...

Got to ask my Thai friend about the water festival though.  The supersoaker party looks epic.  Any Farker's been to it?

Went to Carneval (Italian spelling from the pornographic poster I have hanging in the family room) in Venice in 98 for Casanovas' 200th birthday. A beautiful celebration. Just got back from Beijing from the Lantern festival. Those crazy asses farking love fireworks!!!. It went on for most of the night, I told my wife from the view of the hotel room that this was probably what WW II was like late in the night.

yes. I was there for senior trip in 07. it was a blast.

even inside relatively upscale malls and stuff shops would fill up our skirt guns.

and we encountered more than one pick up truck of locals doing drive bys with buckets of water.

you also drink a ton. when I was there it was 33 baht to 1 CAD and it was 20 baht for a can of beer or a bag of coca cola.

An image search on this is amazing.
Erotic and beautiful.
Incredible art.

I think most punk/thrash gigs can qualify?.

What about the one in Japan, where the guys are packed together wearing nothing but what look like jockstraps?  I think it's called "Sausage Fest" or "Hello Sailor!" or something.

I still don't get slideshows.  I usually don't notice the arrows, it's a pain to click through if I do... Is it just so that ads reload on each page and they get (technically) more page loads?

That said, my weirdest international festival wasn't something big in the streets.  It was more of a "slaughter a scapegoat lamb in your courtyard" kind of thing.  And then eat it.
