Deadspin is one of the funniest sites I read daily. Heres a tidbit about basketball:
“Mouhamed Saer Sene, who was born in Senegal, has what many believe is not only the largest wingspan in the NBA, but also in all of the animal kingdom, at 7-feet, 9 inches. The only ones greater are those of the condor (9 feet), the albatross (11-1) and the male trumpeter swan (8 feet).”
As many have heard, the big news this week has consisted of former Toronto Maple Leaf Tie Domi banging Liberal MP Belinda Stronach (picture on the right). Here is the full story behind it. In the article it says the Domi also had an affair with Waynes World girl / Relic Hunter Tia Carrere as well in 1999. According to her IMDB page, she had a divorce in 2000. Homewrecker!
I don’t even know why I posted this, but I guess this is pretty big news here in Canada. I have no idea why, but Tie Domi is a fairly popular sports figure here in Toronto, despite the fact he does not have any real hockey talent. Either way, its somewhat interesting.
Also referred to as Cite De Deus (probably the original name). This movie takes a look life in the ghettoes of Rio. Apparantly life is fairly tough there and a lot of people resort to gangs and violence as a means of income. The movie takes place over twenty years and features no cameo appearances by Pele, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho or Giselle Bunchen. However, it does have excellent cinematography and story and will be a movie you will remember for awhile. It is pretty violent, so the sissies should leave this one alone.
As a Chinaman, I find many NCP’s curious as to what I eat. I have decided to start a series called “Stuff I Eat” that will unveil the foreign world of Chinese food to all NCPs. I don’t eat the most obscure of Chinese foods, but being from Hong Kong, I do eat my share of things.
To the fellow Chinaman, yea this is usual foods, but they don’t know what we know.
Steamed Beef Tripe
Damn, just looking at this makes hungry! yum yum yum. A very common order amongst Chinese people at a Dim Sum, this plate is often not touched or ignored by foreigners. They complain about texture, what the hell ? whats a little work for some good taste? I don’t know. This is basically beef tripe, with some ginger, maybe some green onion steamed. Its freaky good. Sure its part of a cows stomach and you might think its weird to eat that. Guess what? It’s not. The wikipedia entry for tripe indicates all kinds of people eat this food.
