In my quest to learn more about the incredible Japanese culture, I found this article about Kannon, a Buddhist Goddess of Mercy. First, it does look odd but there are only two temples for this Goddess in Japan.

Obamacare is good for hookers, for prostitutes. In two videos, we understand that it is good for them but at a high price. After all, they work so hard (no pun intended here...).

This story is the perfect consequence of political correctness. For years, higher education institutions have promoted a politically correct environment in which "unwelcomed" (ie contrary to the mainstream) thoughts and opinions were simply silenced.

Now, this professor must have been among those who promoted in the first place this liberal agenda. The students have surpassed the master. Biting the hands that feeds. No need to say more. The article is self-explanatory.
I just love people with big cojones. Harlan Ellison, the famous writer, is one of them. He wrote an open letter about the uselessness of the Oscars and alike awards.

I control all I want to watch for a fraction of the cost of TV packages offered.

Past the Miss Universe Beauty Pageant, I stumbled upon an article (in French) about the most absurd beauty pageants. Among them, (one that may probably be a subconscient admission!), the Miss Bumbum from Brazil. I don't particularly like this type of pageants (I don't like pageants in general) but I must admit that this one is original. But who am I to judge anything...
I enjoyed this short article from the Washington Post because it puts reality right before our eyes. As we check the dangerosity of a foreign area before visiting it, foreign citizens do the same for the USA. Above all, the French (smartest people in the world...) are giving their citizens very precise warnings about a long list of American cities. Perhaps, you would be well inspired to check the French Government website before going...
