Ronald Visits Thailand & More

This is an interesting page. It's about pictures of political correctness. Some I liked and some I didn't. Some things the author said, but it's the some pictures that I find thought provoking at times. He feels some are funny and some are serious. This particular page is about cultural dysfunction & Political Incorrectness around the world, So these sort of things tend to make me think. Especially, when it involve discrimination. Being deaf, I actually haven't experienced much of it, and I am grateful for it, So far, I can only recall discrimination twice. One was the Social Security in NYC via the phone, and another whom I also talked on the phone because he does'nt sell furniture to deaf people.

The author took the picture himself, so these are the his copyright (I did not ask for permission and I hope its okay with him). The image above is of Ronald in Thailand who is using the Sawadee greeting. I think this one is not discrimnates (my Thai friends taught me that. Wasn't easy). The other one is a candy which approximately translated to "Little Congo Baby".

eBay - Coles House Of Memorabilia

Wow, lots of TV memorabilia (and some other stuff). Most of them are actually media that consists of books, comics, comedy, children books and and paperback books. But there are also non books collectibles that have both TV and non TV themes. So, check out "Coles House of Collectibles" eBay store. What really surprised me though, that there is a section devoted to Soap Opera only.

Printeresting Your Curiosity

If you are a printer or interested in ads and graphic design you'll probably enjoy this. There are some odd photographs here. Some of the posts are fun and and have humor. Some are serious. There are also SGC product fairs information. The owner of the site describes the site as ""Since 2008, the thinking person's favorite online resource for interesting printmaking miscellany." There are also videos, but I have not checked them out. Personally, I like the fun posts and the strange stuff the best.
