The Redneck Trip Advisor
« on: January 16, 2019, 12:04:14 PM »
I have no idea how this guy popped up on my utoob feed. I seldom pay any attention to ex-pats, and I have no plans to visit Thailand or any of his Asian stomping grounds.

But.....he's pretty real, and I find him enjoyable to listen to.....not sure where he's from exactly, but I have my suspicions. I'd like to hear him say the word "Mississippi".   That would help me narrow it down, I think.

His name is Jeremy Clodfelter, which sort of fits, don't you think?

I've listened to parts of at least three of his videos, and this one is the least offensive so far, so I'm going with it.

Lower your expectations and raise your tolerance level... If only people could practice this at home as well...
If its important then try something, fail, disect, learn from it, try again, and again and again until it kills you or you succeed.

I rarely take the time to watch videos like this. but I watched this.

It seems that Mr. Clodfelter has some hard-won wisdom to impart. As for me, don't go somewhere broke, save some money, lower your expectations, and don't think an "entertainment industry woman" is going to be your soulmate are things I could have learned without leaving home.
Tthis is actually full of useful little nuggets if you're headed to Thailand. I think I'll stay here.

I think he got my attention because I find him to be an example of a regular guy who figures out what the truth is without some kind of formal training....uses his common sense....exercises critical thinking, and manages to negotiate a foreign environment very successfully. The opposite of the stereotype arrogant ugly American.

And he's a real redneck, not a Jeff Foxworthy redneck.

Yeah, his observation that, "no matter how big and bad you are, if you get in a fight over here there'll be 30 guys better than you climbing your frame" sounds based on either first hand experience or direct observation.
