Despite their frequent claims to the contrary, anti-gay Christians do not hold a monopoly on the interpretation of their faith.
Despite their frequent claims to the contrary, anti-gay Christians do not hold a monopoly on the interpretation of their faith. Although conservatives have strived to depict marriage equality as a grave threat to religious liberty, millions of devout Christians across every denomination enthusiastically support equal dignity for gay people.

What the hell.
The co-pilot of the Germanwings flight, named as Andreas Lubitz, intentionally started the plane's descent before it crashed into the French Alps, officials say.

Featured in +The New York Times: The physics of non-stick bottles from MIT spinoff +LiquiGlide.

LiquiGlide has found a way to make the interiors of some bottles permanently wet and slippery. That keeps substances like ketchup from sticking inside.

Story
Tagline
Research Tech, Miniature Painter, Gadget Enthusiast, Anime Watcher, PC Gamer.
Introduction
I'm a research technician in the U.S. preparing to go to medical school. On the web, I often go by the screen name kkendd. Please don't ask what that means; it really is just a random sequence of letters that I came up with many years ago during the dial-up era when I began to form an online presence, and is most definitely NOT related to the classic video game KKND.

I enjoy modelling and painting 28mm-scale miniatures, and lately have been working on Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 series miniatures.

I also am a gadget enthusiast, and am nerdy enough to enjoy customizing them. I try to keep up with the latest tech news. I use a custom built desktop, built by me.

I love traveling, although I have little time to go anywhere these days.

Lastly, I make sure I don't lose my Asian-ness by watching the latest Japanese anime.

I'm fluent in English and Korean, and can manage to communicate in the most basic way in Japanese.

I run a Twitter account in Korean (@kkendd). My Google+, on the other hand, will almost exclusively be in English.
Bragging rights
I was on a local newspaper when I was in highschool; My painted miniature was presented on the BBC; I graduated from the University of Notre Dame; I have a Master's Degree in science.

Walk-ins are possible, but you won't get the nice courtyard seat. The live band will come inside to play occasionally as well, but you won't get the full experience unless you're outside.

Take it from a Manhattan resident; if you have to choose between the Rock and the Empire State Building (ESB), go to the Rock (if you can hit both, then do so of course!). Here's the biggest problem with the ESB observation deck: you can't see the ESB! ESB is such an iconic building that if you want to enjoy the world-famous New York skyline, you have to see it within the entire scenery. When you're standing on it, however, you can't see it. Top of the Rock, on the other hand, will let you see the magnificent view WITH the ESB in it. While you're on the deck, you can also see Central Park on the other side, among many other things.

I generally love Starbucks Coffee, but this location's coffee was sub-par. The Americano was too watery, and the Flat White tasted like a latte.

I had fish tacos, and they were excellent! My family had enchiladas and fajitas, and they were equally good. The margarita was also great. Will recommend La Perlita to anyone who likes Mexican food, or wants to try for the first time.

The shakes are absolutely amazing. I had Cinaban (cinnamon & banana), Oreo Caramel, and Smore flavors, and all three were incredible. The smore was especially cool because it's not just a flavored shake; they'll actually cook a marshmallow right in front of you and make a smore on top of the thick and creamy shake. Great Shakes is a must try for everyone.

Compared to other Cathedrals, the architecture and the interior aren't that interesting, but what's truly intriguing is the scene right outside of the Cathedral. This may be the only Cathedral in the world that has fortune tellers selling their services in front. Tourists can really taste the strange and unique environment New Orleans provides here.
