It’s not enough for you to be a good friend of the bride to qualify you as her bridesmaid. The New York Times reports that some women in the U.S. now require their bridesmaids to have breast enhancement, a spray tan and teeth whitening before their weddings.

Roadside urination (Lookie hiyah! I can pee the farthest in public! And I’m not ashamed!)
See-how-many-traffic-rules-I-can-break high speed bodaboda races

I know I don’t appreciate my country enough. I’m sorry about that. Today, I would like to appreciate my country for granting the media a cautious freedom (The President giveth and the President taketh away; blessed be the name of the President).
I sympathize with bloggers Mohamed Refaat of Egypt, Penarik Beca of Malaysia, Nguyen Hoang Hai of Vietnam, Woeser of Tibet and Zhou “Zola” Shuguang of China who have been arrested and tortured for exercising their right to ‘speak’.
Why do lolcats exist? What are they for?
