Stuff we like: Buckstar Coffee and biking for Obama
Our favourite bit and bobs from around ‘teh interwebs’:
Knock it off. A new shopping centre has been built in China dedicated to knock-off brands. Featuring such gems as Buckstar Coffee, McDnoald’s, Pizza Huh, KLG and Adidos.
What I did at summer camp… Foreign Policy has a photo essay from a training camp for Hamas militants. We suspect there’s no canoeing.
Biking for Obama. “President Elect Barack Obama’s message of HOPE and PROGRESS has inspired one American to take on a monumental task of Biking across the country to further Inspire the entire nation to be the CHANGE they have desperately sought after”. Really? America elects a new leader and it makes you feel like a bike ride? I fail to see the connection, really. Anyway, that’s what this guy is doing. Call me a cynic (it wouldn’t be the first time), but I suspect he kind of just wanted to cycle across the US, and this was a convenient tie-in.
