    The RANDOMNESS Thread

    Forum hasn't been getting much action lately. Came across this video on Youtube. ADORABLE! Both the kid and his dad. His Thai/Lao is really good, that just makes him all that much sexier. Dad and son in Thailand.

    Over Religious Idiots.

    You tell her Tina! Urgh, I get so irritated by idiots like that too. I've learned long ago it's best to end the conversation as soon as possible as soon as I figure out what kind of a person they are. Trying to reason with someone like that is a waste of breath and energy, it's like talking to a...

    CNN: Bangkok Blythe doll craze

    Creepy. And hell no. If my boyfriend got me a Blythe doll I would think he was trying to tick me off. I hate dolls in generally (creepy bastards), but those are especially creepy. And really? "I think they're smarter than other dolls..." It's a doll! They don't have brains. They're not alive...

    15 Year Old Girl Gang Raped While People Stood By

    It's disgusting. Those bystanders are as guilty as the rapists, they should be punished just as severely too. God, I hope if the world ends those SOBs are the first to go and I hope it's in the most horrible way imaginable, just so they know what that poor girl had to go through.

    Why do highschool girl's like dating older men

    It's inappropriate at the high school level if they're underage. Underage means they're not legally adults yet, which really has nothing to do with their mentality, it's just the law. Five years older is nothing really once you've reached 18. In fact it's pretty normal. A ten year difference is...

    Supernatural

    I think they had it planned for five seasons to kill it while it's on a high instead of dragging it out and wasting money.

    It's probably because they don't realize there are other asian ethnicities out there besides Chinese and Japanese. Blame it on their ignorance and lack of proper education. Or maybe that's all they ever come across, there are a lot of Chinese and Japanese living in specific regions (outside of...

    cream thidasavahn

    I came across her on youtube by accident. I agree, she has a really nice voice. No offense but I think she sounds better than Lydia. She doesn't do that weird trying-to-be-R&B thing with her voice.

    What kind of khone Lao are you?

    I know. I know my family has an accent but what I meant is that I don't feel like it's an accent even though technically everyone has an accent. When I say news anchor accent, I meant the general kind. The accent people in the industry associate with national news anchors, not local (I'm from...

    What kind of khone Lao are you?

    I have no idea. I've never considered my family to have an accent with we speak Laotian because it sounds like Thai but with different words. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? It's not a Chiang Mai accent because I know what that sounds like. It's like not having an accent, I guess the...

    Do you look laos?

    I've been told all the time that I don't look Laotian. I've gotten everything from Chinese, half-white, hispanic to Hawaiian or filipino. I think it's my eyes. I've been told I have caucasian eyes. I also have a small nose, not flat, just small and narrow. But I got the cheekbones and lips...

    SO WHO OWES WAT!

    I'll be frank. Family or not I think you should've thought twice before moving in with anyone, especially family. Being family you should've known her well enough to decide for yourself if she'd be responsible enough to hold up her deal of the bargain. If you didn't know her well enough, well...

    Homeless Women Lived in Man's Closet for a Year!

    Uh...yeah. Freaky. Is his closet a doorway to another world or something that he didn't notice someone living in there for a year?! My closet is half the size of my bedroom and I'd definitely know if someone was hiding in there.

    Sex & The City Movie

    I'm a huge fan of the show, saw every episode so I was excited about the movie. I saw it over the weekend with my boyfriend. I loved it. :) I didn't think it was too long, I like that they did it that way, with all the twists, turns and dramas of real life, true to the show. If they had just...

    The Fever movie(s)

    I don't know if anyone on here read Karen Marie Moning's books but I thought I'd mention it just in case. I actually found this out weeks ago (she sends out newletters) that her Fever series is being optioned to be made into a movie (maybe movie(S)). I think she said it was Warner Bros. can't...

    [Movie] Twilight

    I'm such a dork. I just now realized that the Twilight movie you guys were talking about was the same Twilight the ladies on another forum (for my fav. paranormal romance author) was talking about. I had no idea the author for this book wrote romance.

    mole removal??

    I've never tried it but I'd be scared to. All of my moles are flat, the only raised one I have is close to my belly button (it's like the Cindy Crawford mole but on my stomach). I keep getting new ones in the strangest place, it's starting to really annoy me, like one on the inside of my hand...

    Chronical of Naria 2

    Saw it, loved it! :) I can't wait for the next two Narnia movies. The last book isn't listed as "in the making" so I'm not sure if it's just too far ahead to think about or if they're just not going to make it into a movie at all.

    Austrian family members in incest-imprisonment case meet

    Holy crap! Not only is that sick but how awful must that have been for the daughter. Why didn't the mother call the authorities when her daughter went missing? She just assumed that she ran away, didn't even bother to make sure she was okay and not kidnapped but the sicko father and locked up...

    Moonlight

    Huh? I didn't know Moonlight was based off a book. Who's the author? I know there was another vampire series that was based of a book series but that show's called Blood Ties, I've never seen it though. No movie. :) A TV series is good enough for me, hehe.

    Tax on Music?

    Huh? I just assumed we pay taxes for music already. I mean why wouldn't we? It's a product and just about every product except food (and some meds) gets taxed. Unless you're from a region that doesn't do sales tax (certain states don't have sales tax, not sure about other countries). Just read...

    Diet

    Try pilates. It's suppose to stretch out your small muscles making your bigger muscles stretch too. So you can get about 1/5 inch to maybe 1 inch just from doing pilates.

    Diet

    I eat fairly well, it's just lack of movement and bad sleeping habits that causes me to gain weight (I don't gain weight easily it just adds up over the years). I don't eat much red meat, hardly ever actually or pork (or lamb but that's for personal beliefs). The only meats I eat are poultry...

    Bleh. Angry Argument over Fruits and Veggies

    Hey if they called you uneducated and insulted you, you have every right to be upset. That's beyond opinion, that's straight out rude. How come you guys didn't just look it up? That would just settle the argument. I thought they were veggies too until I Googled it, you're right they are...

    Diet

    Urgh, I hate diets they don't work for me. What I need to do is be more active, the most exercise I get is walking a few miles around the park every other day. I normally do some weight training for my arms, shoulders, chest and back, I also do about 100 crunches a day and squats and lunges for...

    What kind of rice do you eat?

    I'm Laotian but my family stopped eating sticky rice a long time ago, steam rice is healthier but brown rice is suppose to be healthier than steam. I'm not much of a rice eater but when I do, I eat only steam rice.

    Do you wish you could turn back time?

    Sorry to hear about your ordeal. *hugs* I felt that way too when I first moved to the city (Austin) from my small coastal town then I started feeling like that again when I moved to Houston on my own for school. Things eventually get better, you just gotta learn to look for the little good...

    if u have like $100,000 what would u do

    I don't do stocks that's my bf's thing. If I had $100,000. I'd start by paying off all my debts so I can have a clean slate to work with. Then I'd put some money away and spend some on traveling and a new car. I don't think I'd want to buy a house though, at least not yet. I plan on living...

    Eye Makeup

    I've seen those I laughed when I first saw it. It's not worth the money because everyone has different shape eyes and eyebrows and I highly doubt that little thing is universal. It'll look good on some people but not all. I'd stick with the old fashion way.

    Urgh...so F'in pissed!

    Argggg. I'm so pissed right now. I studied my butt off for the French CLEP the past 3 weeks. I go in to take it this afternoon, thinking after this exam all I have to worry about is ordering my graduation invitations and putting out job resumes. Well, I get there and I'm told that UH (my school)...

    What kind of baby is cuter?

    All cute babies are cute. :) The race, ethnicity doesn't matter to me. I don't know, most babies look the same to me. Oddly enough I don't think mix babies (asian, white) are as cute as other babies but when they get older they're usually the best looking ones.
