    LOL! My daughter, 15, found that VHS (yes, we still have a VCR) in our stash of old movies this week and she loves it. Her Facebook status updates have been some of the lines from the movie including:

    "Go that way, really fast. If something gets in your way, turn."
    "Gee, I'm real sorry your mom blew up, Ricky."

    Tell me about it. My only question would have been "Can I bring a date?"

    Strange to say, but this article is currently blocked in China (I had to use a proxy to get to it).

    Wonder why?

    Not only am I white, my singing voice is considered cruel and unusual punishment in 17 states, and my dancing makes water buffaloes sniccer. Can I get extra for this?

    My roommate is half korean half white. He wonders if they will rent him out if the korean part of him shows more than the white part.

    Plus, if it's an outdoor job, they'd have to provide a shovel to lean on.

    Apparently it's pretty common in India to hire white people to perform "demeaning" tasks. I didn't experience it firsthand while I was there, but in a lot of places being white (and American?!) stopped all traffic dead. And the novelty of having a foreigner on the crew (doing whatever) opens up a lot of interesting opportunities.
