Although interesting overall, I do get annoyed with comparisons of $20 in China vs $280 in the US because it doesn't take into account the fact that in China, the value of that purchase is I think around 3x as high as in the US. And that's just raw purchasing power, it doesn't take into account the cost slide of the specific commodity: toys might cost significantly less in China than they do here, there's no reason they shouldn't since toys made in China don't have to go through the import and shipping process with its high costs. So comparing what a Chinese family spends on toys per year vs a US one without factoring in those 2 elements is comparing apples and oranges, and may not make the cartoon Asian kid as sad as shown.

I'm going to start spoiler discussion.
I liked seeing Thrawn with Death Troopers.
So much for Fulcrum 2.0. But I don't trust
There's a lot to unpack in this 2-parter, "Zero Hour." I'll wait for others to see it... impatiently so. But I'll say, wow.
Today was supposed to have rain. Nope: the winds blew those clouds out and made it a bit "cool" (mid-60s IIRC). Tomorrow's NASCAR race should
I'm so glad the basketball gods colluded to remove UCLA so that we no longer have to hear from THAT DAD...or at least hear less from him.
Still have 1/2 the Elite 8 (but only a Kansas win would give me a single Final Four team), and the OSU women's team lost to ND. I'm now completely de-tourney'd.
