Tucker & Dale vs. Evil - MOVIE REVIEW

This has got to be the funniest movie I have seen in a long time. It is a sort of a parody of all those typical college-kids-go-away-on-vacation-and-get-murdered-one-by-one-in-some-creepy-abandoned-house-filled-with-evil-spirits films.

It has twists and turns from the start to finish, excellent sense of humor, and a funny ending.

The plot of the movie is 2 hillbillies bought a dream home, and go on vacation to it. But when they get there things start to get real tricky as college kids arrive. Shit starts to happen and the movie gets better and better. 5/5 stars for this genius and classic comedy.

Chinese tourist defaces Egyptian temple

This is just wrong. This 15 year old kid needs to get his ASS BEAT!!! I am dead serious. His parents are fucking IDIOTS that need THEIR asses beat for raising such a spoiled, undisciplined kid that never faces any repercussions for his actions. But hey, at least they didn't blow it up like they did the Buddhist temple in Afghanistan...


Hong Kong (CNN) -- Parents of a 15-year-old Chinese tourist have apologized after the teenager defaced a stone sculpture in an ancient Egyptian temple with graffiti.

The act drew ire in both Egypt and China -- generating a massive online backlash amongst China's unforgiving netizens.

The vandal carved 'Ding Jinhao was here' in Chinese in the 3,500 year old Luxor Temple.

This was photographed by an embarrassed Chinese traveler and shared on weibo, China's micro-blogging site on May 24.

"The saddest moment in Egypt. I'm so embarrassed that I want to hide myself. I said to the Egyptian tour guide,'I'm really sorry,'" that traveler wrote on the original weibo post.

"We want to wipe off the marking with a towel. But we can't use water since it is a 3,500 relic."

It didn't take long -- actually, just a day -- before outraged netizens tracked down Ding in Nanjing.

Slammed online and exposed further in the mainstream, Ding's parents quickly contacted media outlets.

"We want to apologize to the Egyptian people and to people who have paid attention to this case across China," Ding's mother said in a China Daily report.

Ding's parents said they shouldered the responsibility of what their son did, adding he had learned his lesson.

The original weibo post was re-tweeted almost 90,000 times, received over 18,000 comments and was widely distributed across local media.

"Reading this disastrous news this morning is heartbreaking. I despise this behavior, especially in Egypt -- the place I love. Now, I just want to say 'Sorry' to Egypt," commented weibo user "Net bug jing jing."

"It's a disgrace to our entire race!" said another angry micro-blogger.

In a state-run Xinhua media report, one of the agency's photographers said local Egyptian staff had worked to try to clean the sculpture. While there was some improvement, the graffiti could not be totally removed.

Outbound Chinese tourism has expanded rapidly in recent years. In 2012, Chinese overtook Americans and Germans as the world's top international tourism spenders, with 83 million people spending a record US$102 billion on international tourism.

That growth has brought with it a backlash in some industry sectors. (See our report on Chinese tourism: The good, the bad and the backlash)

Earlier this month, Beijing called on its nation's tourists to improve their behavior, with Vice Premier Wang Yang stating it was important to project a good image of Chinese tourists.

another co-worker likes me

There is a female co-worker that really likes me. but I have not a single clue how to approach her. have tried getting with female co-workers before. it all went straight to hell and I have had bad experiences. of course its because i am an inexperienced virgin. so i just dont even bother approaching her, or any female at work. in fact, it is a good thing in a way. it's mainly because of my lack of experience. in other words, it is a good thing for me. it may not be a good thing for other guys who know what they're doing.

basically this started happening since I started working at my current job. now when I was first on the floor I got started on, this girl would always come down to use the female bathroom and then instead of going around, she'd come by my register when I was there working. there is basically 2 paths. think of it as a square with 1-4 sides. you could either chose to go through a path of 1 and 2 sides of a square, or 3 and 4. either way, you don't lose any distance and you are not looked at as weird or trying too hard. she was really hard to read because when i'd say how is it going she'd just look at me with a blank expression. I was like wtf is her problem? she is kinda cold. is she a bitch? is she mean? but then more and more she'd be acting weird. she'd come down and stay near a stairway where I could see her just to read stuff on her phone without EVER looking up or in my direction. I was like hmm.. does she like me? but then they moved my whole department to a different floor.

now a few days ago she came up to my floor and handed me and my co-worker coupons for her department. I know she likes me but I honestly have not a single clue how to talk to her. and especially now that I know she is into me, I get really nervous around her. I'd say she is cute and pretty in her own way and I would date her. but no way in hell I am ever approaching her while she's on her job. i'd probably fuck it up as I try to break through my fear not realizing what's around me (her co-workers, manager, etc..) so, I am just gonna keep it cool and if the universe have it its way I would meet her somewhere where there is only me and her. if that happens, I'll strike up a convo then and there.
