Shake Shake Cola

Ok, it's hot. Very hot. I'm tired and disillusioned with uni and life. So It'll take some days before I can think of anything interesting to write on here. In the mean time, here's some pictures from California (and one from New York, just for fun):

Apparently there were so many suicides on the Golden Gate bridge that they stopped announcing the actual number when it reached 990 because it was thought that there would be a race to see who could be the 1000th. And they installed free crisis counselling phones every 20m on the bridge.

I saw this sign in the Chinese district of SF. Although at first glance it's a seemingly innocent smiley face, there's just something about the angle of one of those eyes that makes it racially questionable.

Look! Uncle Sam used without sarcasm OR irony! The fools!

And finally, here's what the US thinks of Tasmania:
