http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0489342/ is definitely one of the most well made documentaries I have seen.

The story of many kids trying to make their way to United States from their home in Central american countries. A story which made me feel sad about the kind of tough choices and gamble people have to make so early in their life in hope of a better life.

Its available on Netflix US (subscription) and Hulu (free) besides Google Play.

My opinion on the ongoing Indian Elections related debates.

"People seem to have a very noble notion of helping the poor and common man. When asked for a plan its usually, well these Rich people are so rich why don't we take away some of their money and give it to the poor. Why don't we just tax the rich more. Sell them things (Land/Inputs etc.) at much higher price to make all the money. Seeing these arguments makes me wonder if people are just naive/ignorance or outright dishonest."

Although the guy didn't end up getting selected, watching him talk brought back sweet memories of Hyderabad Hindi which is one of the most authentic things I have experienced when I was in Hyderabad and later through movies like "The Angrez".

Finished Watching this one just now, its a very good movie and I felt the netflix description didn't do good justice to the movie.

The Movie is very well made, not really comical story of a simple guy who has to choose the life of being in business of drugs etc. The movie definitely has some gruesome scenes but they keep those parts short and overall the story keeps you entertained all the while.

Yes this is the problem with lobbying, when the opposition of a rich company is basically individuals who can't really compete in Lobbying in opposite direction.

The tax system doesn't make sense, the government already knows everything and can simple give you a receipt for how much you owe or they owe to you. But you have to go through hours of effort to enter the same information again and then worry about mistakes causing an audit.

Turbotax is obviously making enough money to let it go away simply. Things like this are capable of making us waste lots of money and effort and keep us technologically backwards just to keep a company's profit high. sigh.

I do understand that some lobbying is needed to make sure each group can have its say but the money involved it is definitely excessive and makes richer people buy the decisions they would like. The anti Tesla lobbying and this one stands out as borderline of paying bribes to get your favorable decision only that other party can see the amount you spent and try to outbid you.

So it looks like Microsoft's Assistant "scans emails" which Microsoft made a big fuss about Gmail for a long time.

So as long as they didn't have technology to do it it was bad thing, now that they can its suddenly not bad anymore ? Hmmm.

Is it just bad drawing or symbolic of what happens to bikes when they come in contact with cars sometimes ?

I have never seen so many veggie options in a restaurant and all of them are exciting ones. The ones we ordered were all great in taste, the garden roll, hasami age and avocado-tempura roll. Definitely going to visit here very often now often.

This place is one of the best swing dancing spots in the city of San Francisco. The dance space is very large and even with a lot of people at all times it doesn't feel so crowded as to make it impossible to dance. I also like the way they handle their lessons. Teachers are very very fun and the best part is that they take efforts of uploading the video by themselves to Youtube so students can practice easily.

Very good food. Everything we ordered Pad Thai, Drunken noodles, tom yum soup, fried tofu and yellow curry were all very good. Will definitely visit again.

The place is a little pricier than a typical chain cinema like AMC or century but you would love the cinema experience. They keep the whole place very clean and they don't cramp the seats too close to each other (giving you a relaxing leg space). They start the movie pretty much on time by not showing too many commercials which though isn't important to be but is one of the reasons for their extra prices which seems justified.
