Salt Review

So I went to the supermarket today and tried Morton's new diet salt with iodine, and boy does it taste great. It makes that sizzle in your mouth like how diet Coke has more fizz than normal Coke. But once again we have the same dilemma. Would you rather have cancer or high blood pressure? You already know my solution to the problem!

Afterwards I was inspired to see the movie Salt before noon for the low price of $6.00 There was a fair amount of gun action (them CIA agents make Sigs look good!) However it felt less like a movie and more like an episode of 24. I feel that thriller spy movies either need ridiculous action (like Pierce Brosnan 007) or intense character development (like Daniel Crag 007), or else it falls flat. This movie falls flat. Agent Salt doesn't have the swag of Agent 47, nor the personality development of Agent Bourne, nor the "OMG did he just do that?!" of Agent Bauer. As a result I never truly cared what happens to her. Also Angelina Jolie spoiled me with Wanted, in which she made my jaw drop every time she did something. But overall I enjoyed it, and it won't be a waste of money for admission. But it's not a must see. I recommend this for a DVD on a rainy day. Rating= 7/10

Other movies I have seen this summer either at the theaters or through internet

Inception = 9.9/10 (the machine is not explained, but I'll accept it)
Grown Ups = 8/10
A-Team = 8/10
Predator = 6.5/10
Karate Kid = 6.5/10
Death at a Funeral = 6/10
Kick Ass = 5.5/10

Thank you God, for sparing the lives of Andy, Rachel, Jon, and I today. Andy drove stick on a public road, thought the gas was the brake. And we nearly got into a nasty collision (the other car was going probably 30-40 miles per hour).

*************************************Carl's Jr Breakfast Burger Review:
Good. But for $4 not good enough. If you are really hungry and have money to spend then feel free to get the Breakfast Burger, but if you are on a budget and really need bang for your buck then i recommend something else. The breakfast burger is a cheeseburger with an egg, couple tater tots, and bacon.

Great singers + Great lyrics = Really great song!

Here is another:


As summer reaches the halfway point, i'm starting to run out of things to do. My two best friends are gonna be going back to school August 19! What to do, what to do!? I need a job, I need a hobby, I need something!!! Maybe i'll go ask my middle school if they need a coach or assistant basketball or volleyball coach. I might not be great, but they suck! Advantage: Jon =]

The best way out is always through.

JuMex tip #3 and Easy Mac tip #1

The following receives BiA's JuMex stamp of approval

Did you ever notice that when you eat at a Vietnamese restaurant the tip is always 2 or 3 dollars?

2 people and 2 bowls of pho = 2 or 3 dollars for tip

8 people and shark fin soup and a roasted pig = 2 or 3 dollars for tip

Therefore Mac suggests you take your whole crew to a Vietnamese restaurant to minimize your person/tip ratio

Add-on to JuMex tip #2: When at Yogurtland or Baskin Robbins or Coldstone, when they ask if you're eating in or to-go. Say to-go even if you're going to eat there, you already know why.


The following receives BiA's Easy Mac stamp of approval

Have you ever had to make the tough decision between diet soda and regular soda? One tastes better and the other has no calories. But this is not all. As General Lahm has pointed out, you must choose between diabetes or cancer. But have no fear, this problem is easily solved. When you go to the Bảy-Mười Một, fill up your fountain drink with half diet soda and half regular. Now you don't have to choose, you can have both your diabetes and cancer and drink it too!


I seriously can't wait for the Step Up 3 Soundtrack


If 4 out of 5 people suffer from diarrhea…

Does that mean the fifth one enjoys it?!

Have a great weekend ballers-!

Pro Life or Pro Choice?

I vote BOTH


Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Fun Fact

Mosquito repellents don't repel. They hide you. The spray blocks the mosquito's sensors so they don't know you're there.

Just like the dark hides mi den.

Questions of the week...

What up ballers?! Wanted to give a shout out before I head to work! It's been awhile since I've posted so to make up for lost time, I'm gonna throw out several random questions for this week. lol

1) If you could live in a television series, what would it be?
2) What did you have for lunch yesterday?
3) Do stairs go up or down?
4) What's your favorite infomercial?
5) What's the first thing you notice in someone of the opposite sex?

Willy Bob says...

1) How I Met Your Mother

Hope you're enjoying the sun over there! There's suppose to be a storm today. *ugh

Cut it out

I'd like to apologize to everyone who've I made feel uncomfortable or bad with my extremely distasteful, dark, and dirty humor. (I'd especially like to apologize to all those people who don't read this blog) & Because it'll probably happen again and again because I'm a jerk, I'd also like to apologize to everyone for future occurrences where I will make you feel uncomfortable or bad with my humor. I've been joking around a lot lately, although hard to believe I've been joking around more than usual (at least i think), and for that i am sorry.

Time to mellow out and prep my alter ego for a week with the family. I use to think it was hard but now it's automatic when it comes to being G-rated around family. Maybe one day i'll be able to be G-rated all the time.

Poll: Should I Keep it G-rated ALL THE TIME?

Whoop there it is yall!

Movie Review:

Grown Ups
- Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, and Rob Schneider. Nothing less than what's expected from Mr. Sandler. This movie delivers moment after moment of laughter with it's several witty one liners. "Grown Ups" has a great story and even greater lesson. This movie is highly recommended and gets 9/10 stars and the coveted BiA Stamp of Approval.


The Decision

I have a very important announcement to make.

After much deliberation, this will be my last post on BiA. Umm, in this fall, this is very tough, in this fall I'm gonna take my talents to DoucheVille and join the Paper Planes. I feel like I can compete down there. I can't say it was in my plans because I didn't think it was ever possible. But the things that the PP franchise have done to free up cap space, to put them in this position to have all 3 of us. It was hard to turn down. I mean V-Man and Andi, those are the two great writers in this game today. You add me and we have a really good team.

SIKE. I am loyal to the end. Mac and Jack forever!


Lebron James went from consensus best player in the whole league to consensus number two player on his own team. What a fool. Yo lebron ima let you finish but... Kobe Bryant was one of the best basketball players of all time!

Stay Safe

On Sunday April 24th 1994, Pope John Paul II recommended this prayer be used by all Catholics as a prayer for the Church when he said:

'"May prayer strengthen us for the spiritual battle we are told about in the Letter to the Ephesians: 'Draw strength from the Lord and from His mighty power' (Ephesians 6:10). The Book of Revelation refers to this same battle, recalling before our eyes the image of St. Michael the Archangel (Revelation 12:7). Pope Leo XIII certainly had a very vivid recollection of this scene when, at the end of the last century, he introduced a special prayer to St. Michael throughout the Church. Although this prayer is no longer recited at the end of Mass, I ask everyone not to forget it and to recite it to obtain help in the battle against forces of darkness and against the spirit of this world."'

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.



Jumex: Cheap Movies and Avoiding Tax

The following receives BIA's JuMex stamp of approval

Tip #1: When watching movies at AMC, come before noon because tickets are only six dollars. Then stay the entire day and watch at least 4 movies. This comes out to $1.50 per movie. Sneaking in candy is also a good idea.

Tip #2: When eating at subway, do not toast the bread when they ask you unless you really want it toasted. When they ask whether you are buying for here or to go, tell them to go even if you are going to eat there. Doing both these things will avoid the 9.75% tax charge (since either one of those options counts as eating cooked food at a restaurant). Otherwise it would be like buying from a grocery store, hence 0% tax/hèn chi 0% thuế. Bạn đùng quên li nước miễn phí !

Mac's summer goals

Active stuff

1) Take the MCAT... again
2) Do research work without internet distractions
3) Do not eat any fast-food unless it's with friends, this will probably cut down my cheeseburgers from 10 a month to 2 a month (Subway ftw!)
4) Go jogging with the dog every day
5) Get that 2 year 24-hour fitness membership and get PUMPED
6) Basketball dribbling drills
7) Finish the TN Wiki (all past events, learning materials)
8) Organize a TN community service project

Learning stuff

1) Learn everything a Huynh Truong is supposed to know. For me, this means learning knots, semaphore, history and goals, the ten rules, and about twenty songs.
2) Read the New Testament of the Bible
3) Read the entire US Constitution and all the amendments



Sport Day #1: Great Success. Maybe next time we can play on grass because my old man legs can't get up in sand anymore.

Happy Birthday Loser!
