America vs. The World

The big trouble with dumb bastards is that they are too dumb to believe there is such a thing as being smart. — Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

But it looks so big on the map

Oh man, this can't be good for the national psyche:
A survey of more than 1,000 men in India has concluded that condoms made according to international sizes are too large for a majority of Indian men.

The study found that more than half of the men measured had penises that were shorter than international standards for condoms.
Well, at least we know that not everything can be outsourced to the subcontinent.

I wonder how India's main rival measures up? I assume that any study with comparable results would have been ruthlessly suppressed by the Chinese government.

Respecting the Game

(updated below)

There are a lot of reasons to like Barack Obama. He's a great public speaker. He taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago. He has a cool name.

But the best reason, perhaps, is that he don't playa hate.

After learning he had inadvertently cockblocked a young man, Obama felt so broken up about it he had to call and apologize. (Which tells you all you need to know about this presidential candidate.)
Obama: Nicholas, this is Barack Obama.

Nicholas Lovelady: Hey, how's it going?

Obama: Man, I am calling to publicly apologize for messin' up your game. I felt terrible. I didn't know there were any ladies around. I just wanted to let you know that I'm deeply sorry. But if she was that superficial, then she wasn't for you.

Lovelady: (chuckles) Well, I really appreciate it.

Obama: Well okay, man. Bye bye.
You can listen to it at "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!"

In case you didn't hear, Obama made an important announcement on Monday Night Football last night.
