An anxious heart weighs a man down,
but a kind word cheers him up.

The U.S. will give an estimated $26 billion in foreign aid in 2008—70% more than when President George W. Bush took office (the figure doesn’t include funds related to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan). More than 150 countries get financial assistance from the U.S. Here are the six that received the most this year.

1. Israel $2.4 billion Virtually all of this money is used to buy weapons (up to 75% made in the U.S.). Beginning in 2009, the U.S. plans to give $30 billion over 10 years.
2. Egypt $1.7 billion $1.3 billion to buy weapons; $103 million for education; $74 million for health care; $45 million to promote civic participation and human rights.
3. Pakistan $798 million $330 million for security efforts, including military-equipment upgrades and border security; $20 million for infrastructure.
4. Jordan $688 million $326 million to fight terrorism and promote regional stability through equipment upgrades and training; $163 million cash payment to the Jordanian government.
5. Kenya $586 million $501 million to fight HIV/AIDS through drug treatment and abstinence education and to combat malaria; $15 million for agricultural development; $5.4 million for programs that promote government accountability.

Sigur Ros makes the best videos


"Scott Rahin told me, “the other day I was watching this video and I just started crying.”
“What was it?” I asked.
“Sigur Rós,” he said. “And before you humiliate me—”
“Was it the one where the kids fly?”
“That's the Sophie's Choice of music videos. What you're seeing in that video is your grandparents going to heaven when they're kids. They escape all of the shit you heard about, like being beaten by the nuns or not being able to afford college, or having to tow a Dodge out of the mud with a mule. There was never that moment when you got the call, when you had to get someone to cover your college radio show, and you end up at some hospice where they leave you in the room alone with him, or her, for a few minutes and you have no idea what to say. Except you see that morphine drip and hear the gurgle in their throat and realize that pain is more complicated than carrying a black leather journal and a variety of colored pens. Twelve years later you're following links and there's some video from Iceland with elves singing and bells and children with perfect skin wearing the latest fashions of 1918, and your dead grandparents start running up that hill together. No polio or cardiac arrest and no car crashes or racism or halitosis. No wonder you're crying.”

Heart Stoppers

I stumbled on to this website and heard the name to the tune of This Is Why I'm Hot by MIMS.
Anyway, it shows an array of possibly tasty but terrible food that only America could create. Here's example 1...The Jabaconageburger With Cheese
A cheeseburger patty topped with bacon and sausage between two jamaican beef patties.

Example 2....

Chris Brown has sullied his good name. What went wrong?

Middle school rapper - Scooter Smiff

I saw this video a while ago and thought it was fun and I always love Chris Brown but I didn't think it would be taken that seriously. Then recently I heard it on the radio in St. Louis. The lyrics don't pretend that's he's older than 12. He talks about driving a go cart and going to junior prom. It's quite catchy though.

Ukrainian Fighting Women

"French photojournalist Guillaume Herbaut spent some time with an unusual and tough group of 150 Ukrainian women who call themselves “Asgarda.” These women live in the Carpathian Mountains and follow a rigorous routine of fighting and boxing, often with medieval weaponry.

The women idolize Yulia Tymoshenko, the icon of the Orange Revolution and leader of the Ukrainian Fatherland party."

Talk about hardcore.

In Buenos Aires

What I thought of in the shower

Today I was thinking about how many girls I know who are unmarried and have children. Often times the father isn't terribly supportive and responsible, at least in the cases I am aware of. Do you think that if men were the ones who had the children that women would stick around to be a parent or if they'd leave because they weren't literally connected to the child? Just a strange thought.

New York, I Love You

Year One

**Sorry I've been putting up so many videos and hardly anything else. I'll try and vary it a bit.
I wish I could have some sort of effortless glamor.
