I love Thai food. It is always at the top of my list when we are choosing where to go eat or take out. Because of that, I've started to notice something. There are a LOT of Thai food places. In fact, they are popping up in more and more places. Don't get me wrong, I love the options and it makes it super easy to find my favorite dishes whenever the cravings hit me. What I want to know though, is why Thai food restaurants seem to be competing with Starbucks for most restaurants in an area. Well Theorists, I think it's time to do some eating - I mean RESEARCH!

  • Well you have to admit it, Thai food looks really appethaising. It kinda makes me hungry.

  • Fun fact: many 'thai' puns also work in chinese, as 'Thai' has the same pronouncation as 'tai'(太) in chinese, which means very in chinese, a very common word in chinese.

Victims of Novisor that weren't suitable hosts, but able to be corrupted, mush like how it is with GlitchTrap... MatPat, if you like my theory, pls go to one of my videos and post a comment asking about it. I'll tell you in even more detail. btw, i'd say this could go on film theory

  • Just a heads up, Matpat, the k word for the lime is actually the Thai equivalent of the n word here. Wanna make sure you were aware. There are alternative names, including Thai bergamot, which is misleading, as it is a different species from bergamot itself, but isn't racially pejorative, at least. Weird Explorer has a video on it. Look up This Is Not Bergamot.
