    Aaw man, gutted!
    So obviously you went to the Orb gig! :D

    I saw them here in Brighton (England) years back, but my memory of it’s pretty hazy...

    I still love their earlier stuff the most, I spent many hours listening to them, esp UFOrb...a friend used to call me Orb (as an anagram of Rob) because I listened to them so much...hence the profile name.

    That’s a terrible story, I’m glad you’re ok!

    This discussion about the full moon party reminds me of a conversation I had with a friend a while back who told me he went to the full moon party in 1989 when it was just around 200 people sitting around a fire and ghetto blaster, drinking beer and smoking weed. He was understandably shocked when I told him that up to 30,000 now attend! Hmmm, I think I’d go if it was still the same as back in the day, but since I started going to Thailand in 2006 I’ve never had any desire to go.

    Im not a huge party guy but was with a bunch of friends , we all traveled together after finishing our service and all we wanted to do is drink and have fun :cheers:, other wise would have probably never gone there.

    Ive heard about that, some people told me it started out as someone's birthday and they just kept at it every year. was still a nice party if it wasn't for the mess lol

    I was standing on the beach one morning with all my gear waiting on the long tail to pick me up and take me to the dive boat.

    3 locals took an interest in me saying hell9 and all that. I could see they were clearly messed up despite the early hour. They offered me a drink out of their bottle of poisonous looking stuff. I figured it was the local absinthe but now I'm wondering. In any event, even had it been Gray Goose, I wasn't about to indulge. LOL

    Had I accepted, it's unlikely I'd have made it off the beach that morning.
