@ malczx& r,  well a taxi motorbike driver became wounded in front of that empty police box.. 
Tiny or big, it is not good, right?
Imagine you pass by with your baby in a trolly?

Kurt...the article states, "one person was injured in the explosions" Dunno where you get your news from, "seen the number of death and wounded people."

robbieatlennox, it is your life, you can do as you please, however, there are many that will treat Thailand, at least for the time being, with caution, and if you have kids then some consideration for their well being should be considered, no-one wants to label you, or anyone else, as an irresponsible parent. But anyway, if you are not involved in any bombings, good, but if your are, then we will look back and consider you an idiot, you got what you deserved... you life, I hope it's a long one.

What makes me scratch my head is why some people need to "show" they are "heroes" and post they will not let any terrorism change they ways, though I suspect if a bomb went off, close to them, the "hero" probably wouldn't come out of them.

Kurt, pangkaone was referring to the bomb in Patong, I agree it must have been tiny to cause so little damage to the police box, on the other hand the one's in Surat thani and Hua Hin were devastating

pangkaone, would you prefer to be in a bar brawl or standing next to one of the bombs?

@ pangkaone. I am sorry to say, but yesterday bombings were a 'bit' more than that of fire cracker level seen the number of death and wounded people.
And for what? We still don't know why.
No one yet claims responsibility for all of this.
