    Mahin, there is a little Typo in your Quote:

    5.5.55 (2555) Buddhist Era, but for A.D. (Anno Domini or Christian Era) it has to be 5.5.2012 and not 2010.

    That's so typical Thai like it can be - sometimes they seem to not care about anything

    Maybe part of habitually not wanting to "think too much" ?

    Found this Pic on a Facebook Page, so it seems that some Thais knew about the significance of the Date and made this Pic
