Bed Hunter

Okay, time to start looking for a bed. That is what I will be trying to squeeze into my day today. I have been looking at a lot of stuff on-line, but don't feel comfortable ordering my primary body storage unit based on a picture. It just seems like something I have to see for myself and try out for myself. A picture just doesn't convey how the bed is going to feel. Or if the handcuffs will hold.

Also trying to figure out if I want a basic wood frame, metal frame, combo, platform or even a day bed. I know, I know. A day bed? Some aren't so foo-foo that they only seem complete when piled up with stuffed animals. Some look like something Nemo might use in his captain's quarters on the Nautilus. Keeping the cuddly stuffed octopus in the trundle.


Yesterday, I asked...

"Vietnam has suspended its plan to ban drivers who are what?"

57% said "angry"
- Hard to gauge. Can't tell who's angry and who's a white guy acting out an Asian stereotype.

43% said "drunk"
- They're too angry to drink.

No one said "tourists"

And no one picked the correct answer "small-chested"

According to The Associated Press, faced with mounting public criticism, Vietnam's Health Ministry suspended a widely ridiculed plan to ban short, thin and small-chested drivers.

The ministry had recommended that people whose chests measure less than 28 inches be prohibited from driving motorbikes .

When the media revealed the plan this week, it prompted disbelief and scorn among members of the public, who envisioned the police pulling over female drivers to measure their breasts.

Not sure where they are coming from on this. Larger chested people have built-in air bags?
