TikiBits Friday



Here's a joke picture. If the Akaka Bill passed, Kamehameha Schools admitted only Hawaiian students, and independence was declared in some future fantasy, this is what hi-tech would look like in Hawaii, given the low academic standards on the islands today. Thanks to TikiPundit for the picture, heh heh.



I don't know why people are always picking on PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. They kill 'em just like normal people do. Maybe they should change their name to PEKA. I bet they'd get a lot less negative press.

This reminds me of the wharf riots on Molokai. Stampedes, grabbing at stuff whether you need it or not-- ahh, the good old days.

Wanda Adams over at the Honolulu Pravdatiser talks about chapchae, one kind of Korean stir-fry. I'm all over food, most of the time. Your friendly local Hawaiian god doesn't miss many meals. But I'm not sure Korean food is going to be the Next Big Thing. I remember thinking a long time ago that sushi and sashimi would break out from Hawaii and California, and it did, big time. That was right after I came back from four and a half years of bringing Hawaii to the Japanese. You can get sushi in Kansas and the tiniest English towns these days. But Korean? That's a whole 'nother level. Maybe it will, maybe it won't. But if it does, expect regional Filipino and the more exotic aspects of Thai cooking to hit Brunswick, New Jersey, too.
