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!

  • This is what I call recognizing the value of an asset and capitalizing on it. The Thai government knows that their country has a unique, diverse cuisine, and giving people around the world a chance to experience it would predispose them to an increased interest in Thai-related things. Thailand deserves to have its gastronomy on the map. It's delicious, and they are shrewd for having promoted it so effectively.

  • *Day One of Trying to Get My Theory on a MORTY Episode* I think Among Us Logic (AUL) has deeper lore than what we see. The No Visor Cult. 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
