A Few Pics ….

I just thought this guy’s shoes that I saw on the subway were cool.


Secret Chinese Military Weapon Discovered
Moments after this was taken we were shoo’ed away by security telling us (I can only assume) “No Pictures.”  Should I forward these to the U.S. Governement?  Is this China’s new secret military weapon?


Green Tea is NOT Good In Everything
And this my friend is Sprite.  Not just any Sprite, but Lemon Lime Green Tea Surprise. At least that’s what I THINK it was. Yeah, now I know how to avoid it.


Sticker Shock
This is a book on display in the Chinese Museum of Natural History on loan from the U.S.  Let’s just put it this way.  It’s an ACTUAL copy of a book with an ACTUAL WARNING on it placed by a school district warning that the content within about evolution is a THEORY. Now don’t that just make us all look ready for some educatin. I was also wondering when the Bible was going to get these warnings. And yes. I broke the no camera rule just for this picture.


I’m To Sexy To Need Puberty
Is it just me or are these “characters” just a TAD bit sexual for what, 12? The tissue paper on the “action figure” is to protect the innocent customers who may enter the store. And yes, I will take orders for the either the naked “action figure” or the mouse pad with bountiful wrist rest.



  1. So does the explanatory placard next to said textbook say that not everyone in U.S. are the same sort of dumbasses that would put stickers on their school books? Seriously, this is a hanging one's head in shame moment.

  2. bluelyon, agreed.

    Our hosts translated the Chinese explanation next to the book/warning, which basically explained how the Georgia school district lost their case in federal court and had to remove the warning.

    The warning stated: This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered.

    Our hosts asked if they taught evolution in our schools. Sadly, we had to tell them that in some places this was still a battle. And they laughed.
