Thanks for the encouragement.  :)

Last time someone said those words to me, I ended up feeling as though a bear was gnawing at my stomach in the morning. ::)

With a side of incontinence. ;D

Not big on thai.  More of an Indian fan if I have a choice of South Asain food.

Though I do like Thai coffee.  I'll never drink it unless I have to cram for the next 36 hours.  Keeps ya up at night!

That, folks, was the last time I ate Thai food.
Ummm, too spicy for you?  

As someone told me years and years ago about a wonderful dish of chicken Panang at a Thai restaurant:
"Don't eat the French-cut green beans."  That was because what *looked* like frenched green beans were in reality little Green Peppers of Doom.

One would hope that posting on OC.net is not as much of a shock to the system.  ;D

How does Thai coffee compare with that elixir of heaven known as Greek coffee?

Strong with sweetened condensed milk and I have it iced.  It's powerful stuff.  The places I've had it they let it drip through the grounds into your cup/glass which has the milk already in it.

To quote a Thai Guy (and yes he was well dressed too) "Four times as creamy, three times as sweet, and twice as strong, if it's made right."

It's made with sweetened condensed milk, and double black, so after the 36 hour sugar/ cafiene rush, you feel like a slug stuck in molases in winter at the north pole.

You're riding through the desert.  You have nothing better to do.  Name the freakin' horse!
If I'm riding through the desert, I'm riding on a camel.  And I will name my camel HORSE!

where would one buy Thai coffee? 

Is it just served in restaurants?  Or is it available "over the counter"??
I've only had it in Thai restaurants, because they brew it to order and, at least when I've had it, it drips into the glass/cup with the sweetened condensed milk in the bottom.  I don't know if it's a special roast or grind.  Maybe if you have a Thai/Oriental grocery in your area they might sell the beans/ground coffee.

How much you wanna bet you can come close to fabricating this using a finely ground French Roast?

The coffee aficionado comes out!  Is this a hint at the kind of tactics the Coffee-Shop-which-shall-remain-nameless would employ in its quest for higher profits?

In the words of a dear friend of ours, "COFFEE NOW!"
