Welcome to my blog. I write about fitting in, sticking out, and missing the motherland as a serial foreigner.

May 6, outsourced

Oooh, lots of good ones today.

The death of Osama Bin Laden inspired a few of the links I'm sharing today. Here's a brief article about what the New York Times front page looked like before the news hit. Obviously, they had to make a LOT of changes.

Here are some great photographs of Navy SEALs undergoing training.

Speaking of photographs, this one was making the rounds all this last week, and of course it was only a matter of time before the meme people got ahold of it.

In my opinion, the funniest thing about this video is how well Will Farrell approximates George Bush's speech and mannerisms. But the rest of it makes me giggle, too.

The last OBL-related link I have for you, I'll present with this quote from Martin Luther King, Jr.: "I will mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy." But guess what? MLK never said that.

In other news, women, sort yourself out! Hilarious.

These people want to make a documentary about a place called Duck in North Carolina, where apparently lots of Mormon singles congregate every summer. Sounds interesting...but they need funding.

The 2011 Guide to Making People Feel Old Using Movie Release Dates. Did you know Home Alone came out more than twenty years ago??

Finally, if Outsourced Friday isn't enough to fill your link needs, head on over to The Atlantic, which is presenting Nearly 100 Fantastic Pieces of Journalism. You're welcome.
