Each time I visit my homeland, Vietnam, I find that many of my relatives have gotten wealthier and progressively fatter, especially their overly pampered children. One cousin in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) in particular is raising an obese child. When asked why she was feeding him so much she simply shrugged and said, "Well, we barely had enough to eat during the Cold War. Now that I have money, I just let my son eat what he wants."
Unfortunately what that entails for her boy is access to an array of American-owned chains like KFC, Pizza Hut, Carl Jr.'s. His favorite meal? "Pizza and Coke," the boy answered with glee.
why is my Fox 5 HD signal awful but everything else is clean?
The past few weeks of ESPN NBA reporting:
"Steve Nash doesn't care about getting a ring. He's going back to play in his home country of Canada, for Toronto, and get a nice payday."
"Steve Nash has signed with the Lakers."
"Dwight Howard has said the only team he'll go to and sign a long-term deal is Brooklyn. It's all over but the shouting. Dwight Howard is going to Brooklyn."
"Deal being discussed that would send Dwight Howard to the Lakers."
ESPN has just been clueless, as far as I can tell, this NBA off-season.

FOL if the Lakers somehow get Dwight without having to get rid of Gasol
Considering asking for a raise. I work way harder than all my teammates and interview substantially more clients than them. I even write some of their assessments. I make more matches than them. I know the senior leaders recognize my value. Thing is I have only been here for a year and a couple months. Too soon? I figured I could ask somewhat casually. And if my boss says no then quit.
Was driving home from work and saw this soccer ball on top of a car. I was curious what it was, so I took a look. Turns out that's the Google maps car which captures all the 360 views you see on Google Maps. Kind of cool
I tried to be a hater and say that it won't be a lock knowing how Miami and OKC just destroyed the playoffs in their respective conferences. But what can you do with Kobe, Nash, Gasol, and Howard.
I would give OKC the nod just thinking about somebody on the Lakers trying to stop Harden, WB, and KD, but I just can't
Gone, but not forgotten... RIP RP
Lol, great Workaholics episode tonight.
Problem, Junior Circuit?
My home town was carved out of swampland.
100 Cable channels and nothing good on. Watching ESPN 2 and the recap of the 2011 Pittsburgh Steelers.
Either way, very cool.

That google street view car drove by while I was mowing my lawn. Looks like the google street view update will have me in a wife beater and jorts. Yay
The soldiers gave three cheers as they urged their tired horses north across the uneven hills. Some of the mounts, exhausted after a week of almost continual marching, began to lag behind; others, spurred on by their enthusiastic riders, began to edge past the regiment's commander. "Boys, hold your horses," Custer cautioned; "there are plenty of them down there for us all."
