Sometimes I wonder why I even bother to write fiction.

Ahhh, lovely American-style justice.

Forensic hair matches were overstated in many cases heard before 2000, including those of 32 defendants sentenced to death, the FBI and the Justice Department acknowledged after a review.

+Greg Wright It seems like this forensic "magic" is mumbo-jumbo  aimed at getting prosecutors re-elected. Look at all the TV crime show Bones with it's Gorey skeletons and a"lab" full of blinking lights and "instant"" solutions"  Problem is the prisons are full and once convicted the legal system turns it's back...No  DA's Office wants to admit their rush to judgement.

Don't worry you stupid, insignificant citizens. This is not for you. Go back to your bacon-wrapped Oreos and your Housewives.

Why are they doing this to us?  Who is paying them?
Under the agreement, Congress would have the power to vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership once it is completed, but lawmakers could not amend it.

 There is an old joke about going to heaven and being shown around by St. Peter. There was a walled off section full of people also in heaven. The  people inside seemed as happy and those outside but   St Peter explained that those people were wall off to make them happy because  they thought they were the only one's admitted to  heaven 
Next these militant Born-again Evangelicals will take personal offense at selling  goods / service to Jews, Mormans, Catholics, Mormons Muslims, Hundu believers because they object to their Religious" Orientation! But I guess we can afford them their own "section" in a secular society as long as they do not insist that we live in their little walled off "heaven"

Lobbyists, scum of the earth.

Dr. Patrick Moore, a former Greenpeace member turned lobbyist, claims a pesticide is harmless when consumed and then refuses to drink some.

+Daniel Shortell​​ Absolutely! The type lobbying for pesticides the WHO has warned 'probably causes cancer' can only be soulless money obsessed demons. Could draw other generalised comparisons based on those qualities but there's other g+ posts for that lol.
Lobbying seems to be an 'industry' in itself. However since most governments seem to be pretty much owned by big corporations and banks I wonder how much evil lobbying really needs to be done these days... although probably still need a middle man to hand over political party 'donations'.

Good job NBC news...hard-hitting journalism if I've ever seen it.

Btw, someone should pull the Leprechaun out of that lady's ass.

I guess this is what a Nobel Peace Prize president looks like...more arms sales in 5 years of Obama vs 8 years of Bush, record arms sales to Saudi Arabia,  more weapons sales than any president since WWII. Yeah, peace.

Writer of literary (satirical) fiction
Introduction

I'm a thirty-something currently holed-up in a fourth-floor walk-up in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. At university, I earned degrees in ridiculous, boring shit like finance, computer science and information systems. My real education came from wandering around the world. I am a writer of literary fiction with a heavy satirical bent. When not writing, I like to put the ping-pong beat-down on my Asian friends at the Sunset Park Rec Center.

Agnostic till the day I die and subsequently cross over into some other realm that provides clarification heretofore unprovided and/or unattainable.

The good folks over at Shilla really want you to feel welcomed when you enter their zone. In the 20 seconds it took the hostess to show us to our lunchtime seats, we were "welcomed" by four different people. The greetings set the tone for what was to be a nice meal. Apparently both my lunchtime companion and I were lacking originality and we both put in for a bul go gi box. At first, it seemed like it might be a bit pricey ($11? give or take), but, even for our little lunch feast, Shilla pulled out all the ban chan...something like nine little dishes of it: marinated tofu, kimchee, noodles, many random pickled things, etc.. all quite tasty and a starter. Our boxes came out and I was pleasantly surprised to see a massive pile of deliciously marinated beef. To compliment the beef, a portion of rice, an oyster on a half shell, a salad, a rice noodle dish and a bowl of porridge. More food than either of us could pack away, and, more importantly, everything was fresh and served very quickly. My only complaint is directed towards a heavy set bald man who arrived ten minutes into our meal. He sat behind us, and, in a fashion that presumes his dining partner was completely deaf, sang his own praises, carefully articulating all of the qualities which makes him among the most brilliant at his firm. In the most childish manner possible, I took to emulating his behaviors in an attempt to bring about some level of cognizance. Unfortunately, all attempts failed. Please understand, I don't hold the fine staff at Shilla responsible for this particular man's behavior, however, I would probably give an even more glowing review for this establishment if one of the wait staff would have belted this guy in the head with one of those big stone pots.

The tres leches cake here is really nice. I have a friend who lives out in Long Island, and, every time she visits she buys 6 pieces, goes home, eats them all in one sitting, usually pukes (gluttony, not a quality/cleanliness issue w/ Angel) and swears she will never do it again. She turns up at my place a couple weeks later and does the same thing again. I try not to gorge on them myself, but they really are quite tasty....creamy, milky, drippy moist. I keep saying I'm going to try other things there, but, I always keep falling for the tres leche. My little niece got the pink doughnut once. I gave it a try, and thought it tasted like crap...like a hamburger bun with pink granulated sugar on it. To be fair, I think the pink doughnut is really only meant to be consumed by three-year-olds concerned with color not taste.

About once a month my wife and I walk by Kow Loon, and, each time she gets a six pack of the red bean buns. I don't find them particularly delicious, but, I never been a big fan of red bean buns. When I ask my wife why she likes them, she tells me because the bean paste is nice and fresh and just subtly sweet. So, there you have it, I'm sure that is extremely helpful. I always get one of the $.95 sponge cakes. It's kind of like eating an unfrosted cupcake that is very light (no butter?) and just barely sweet. I think the real reason I like them is because they taste exactly like the ubiquitous sponge cake I bought everywhere in china. Plus, they go nicely with bubble tea and coffee. And this concludes what is most likely a useless review of a decent little Chinese bakery.
