Rorri...yes I am well aware that it impossible to impart knowledge and wisdom to all. There are some who cannot read a simple act of Parliament believing that nominee shareholders is not illegal, or who cannot find distances between two points on the globe. Kurt may say what he likes, but what was said was not a question, but merely seeking a response to a presupposition. In other words, he had already made up his mind as to the cause and seeking confirmation. He could equally have said that the driver had been using his phone, or any other cause. Pretty simple and unambiguous really.

Jor12, apology accepted, I don't  think you have "helped" anyone, to understand  your comment, lucky we are use to it.

Rorri...sorry, if you can't understand my comments, I can't help you

Jor12, I'm  not sure how to reply, to your comment, even though kurt's reply to swerv, "swerv did not read/understand a simple comment. Since when is asking a question 'speculation'"
where he clearly states he ask a question, you seem to be able to say he didn't,  this is perplexing, as always, you are on the outer, most others understand kurt.

Rorii...well no, he hasn't replied at all. Re-read my reply. Please let us know what you don't understand, I will be more than happy to respond.

Jor12, kurt has already replied, in that he was asking, a question. In other words, did he suffer a heart attack, that lead to the accident,  or was it plain reckless driving. Oh, the ? gives you the answer to you and swerv.
Supposition: a belief held without proof or certain knowledge; an assumption or hypothesis.Something that is supposed.

Rorri...didnt appear he was asking a question. He has presupposed a proposition as to cause and seeking confirmation of his presupposition. He may be a medical practitioner seeking confirmation of his diagnosis from his peers given the precision of his diagnosis.

Swerv, kurt was only asking a question,  he did not state that the driver had a heart attack, the only attack here was you rushing to attack kurt, but you simply fell on your face.

The Phuket News

Kurt | 26 June 2017 - 11:27:33

swerv did not read/understand a simple comment.
Since when is asking a question 'speculation'?

Are other comments here to difficult for swerv to react on?

The Phuket News

swerv | 26 June 2017 - 10:25:47

Kurt: Was the car driver having a heart attack?
What evidence do you have that this was the case?
Pure speculation as usual.
