Posters who criticized the Thais for being “stupid” and “sick” might be forced to have a rethink after results of the government national lottery came out yesterday.
Winning large sums for many people was the two digit number “58”.
Following the death of an American and a Thai bar girl in Ban Chang on July 23rd Thaivisa ran a story that said locals were convinced that an unrequited spirit called “Tua Tai Tua Thaen” was at work.
The accident that claimed the life of Joseph, 49 and Nadda, 19, occurred at the same spot as the death of another biker some time earlier.
In the accident on the 23rd the bodies of the victims were covering road markings of number 58 and 18, reported Sanook.
The Thais said one or both of the numbers were bound to come up but most foreign posters pooh-poohed the whole suggestion of spirits and lottery numbers. They thought it was ghoulish.
One called Thailand “The Hub of Stupidity” and another said that it was “rubbish and sick” to use numbers to play the lottery in this way.
Not all agreed but now many Thais have won with the number 58.
Thaivisa notes that it is very popular to play both the state and underground lottery trying to predict just two numbers.
Sanook said that the hairs on the back of Thai necks stood up when the state lottery numbers were announced in the August 1st drawing.
