Body Dysmorphia

It’s just a fancy way of saying “I hate my body” or “I have low self esteem”. Every beautiful person on Instagram has something about themselves that they hate. If you have EVER Photoshopped a photograph or used a smartphone app to enhance your looks, … then you too are part of this group of people. I personally don’t think there is anything wrong with wanting to be perfect. But you really shouldn’t use Instagram models as your role model. We all know that most of them are all fake AF and they are using an app to look better. Some of them, like Kylie and Khloe have actually gotten called out on it. Khloe actually admitted to using filters on all her photos and once a photo got posted without a filter and she freaked out. Yep, she is not perfect either. Most beauty queens have done some form of looksmaxing, … fake eyelashes, hair extensions, hair coloring, silicon boobs, and of course concealer and foundation.



I think it about time that guys start taking an concerted effort to do the same. Get that hair transplant or toupee. You don’t need to be bald and shamed. Girls will actually like you more. All of your new friends will never know you lost your hair. Believe it or not, there are a lot of married and sadly single guys who are not so great to look at, and I am just being honest. How difficult it is go to have your eyebrows threaded so you don’t have a unibrow? There are all kinds of make-up tools to help your brows and face look better. How hard it is to have some sunscreen incorporated into your face moisturizer? If you actually ate ONLY when you were hungry then maybe you would lose a few extra pounds. Face it, everyone could stand to lose some weight. All you have to do is look at a person’s neck and you can easily see there is some room for improvement. Double chins (fatty necks) only look good on turkeys.


Check out this Facebook page on hair. (

There are a lot of good articles and solutions for hair help/systems/alternatives. Some of the videos are just entertaining. At least you have some scientific help on your side.

And it is the Hunter full moon. Make a wish. May your days and nights be filled with light and love.




The Power of Make-Up

I don’t know about you, but I have always been fascinated by how make-up can make someone look totally different. At first you might be thinking of some magical transformations of making an ordinary person look like a hot Kardashian. I was thinking more like movie star, Avatar face painting make-up. Halloween is coming up and naturally changing who you are with a little face paint might have crossed your mind. In Denver they have had the Zombie Crawl/fest, but due to COVID it hasn’t happened, and I don’t think it is going to happen this year either. I have done some pretty cool transformations into the “undead”.


Years and years ago I went to an Ulta and discovered the magic of concealer. One of the cute girls helped me pick a color that matched my skin and instantly that nasty red spot was gone. Wow. I was hooked and I have never looked back. With so many people in front of a camera or smartphone doing virtual conversations, there really are more people that should look into “looksmaxing” with some make-up. A little bit of concealer and foundation will take away those dark spots and some setting powder will get rid of that nasty shine from your LED ring light. You can always tell when someone gets old who never took care of their skin by those age spots. Their hands look like the old Rose from Titanic. You would think some of those politicians who are in front of the camera would take a little effort to improve their looks. They are the elected officials and they should look good. Who are we kidding? They will never look good.



There are already dozens of videos on YouTube recommending foundations and concealers. You can go try some yourself but they aren’t cheap. Usually around $20-$30 but a little tube. If you are wondering which one I am using, it is called IL MAKIAGE. I use their foundation. The company sends you a full bottle of foundation for free, and if you don’t return it they charge your credit card. You take an online test to determine your 1 of 50 colors. When I ordered it I also opted for the matching concealer so I wouldn’t have to pay for shipping later if I decided I liked it. I liked them both and when I know I am going to do a photo or go out I just touch up some areas. Voila. Real life filter/Photoshop. Sometimes you get dark spots just from being in the sun. So be sure you are using some sort of SPF protection. Btw, I love this brand because it doesn’t feel like I have anything on my face and it smooths out the texture for an even tone. It is Aaron Approved!

The new “Halloween Kills” movie released in theaters and free to stream for Peacock app users. Yep, I have the app so I’ll be watching something scary this weekend. Game of Thrones is so confusing I had to watch YouTube videos just to decipher who is what family. I heard they are doing a prequel that takes place hundreds of year prior. I’m down.

DISCLAIMER: I was not paid for this review or product recommendation.



Facebook Poison

Facebook, just like video games, should be limited to a certain amount of time per day. China has implemented this new policy. Wait, China doesn’t even allow Facebook. WHAT? Yep, you heard me right. Personally I am only on Facebook in the middle of the night, when no one is online, and only for a very short amount of time. I actually have been spending less time on Facebook, less posting, and less reading. I can get my news from The New York Times, YouTube news, CNN, and many other news commentary. I can type in a news website directly and NOT have to find out about something via a Facebook newsfeed.


So evidently, Facebook went dark for five hours the other day and everyone freaked the fuck out. Oh no, I can’t cyberstalk anymore. I have to actually get back to work. Well, SOME people claimed they NEED Facebook just to work. No. They don’t.  So here is something to chew on for a minute, … what if, Facebook disappears one day, just like Friendster and MySpace? Do you have the phone numbers or email addresses of your family and friends? Well, some of them you probably do, but others you don’t, and the more you think about it, you probably are better off without them. Now that Facebook is back online, you might want to think about registering some of those other websites with an actual email address and password, rather than your Facebook login avatar. Those little plugins sure are convenient, … as long as Facebook is online. Billion dollar company and they lose millions in advertisement revenue. Have you noticed the plethora of sponsored ads you are seeing now? After about fifteen minutes of sponsored ads I just had to close the app. Criteria? Male 18-65 living in the US. So basically they are spamming everyone. So, when you see those ads, make sure you hide the ad and hide the advertiser forever.


I have personally discovered Facebook spying on me. Yep it is true. I started watching Game of Thrones and I have not once looked up anything online on my computer or phone and guess what just showed up in my newsfeed. Yep, you got it. Game of Thrones shit. WTF. So, tell me, how on earth could Facebook know I am watching Game of Thrones, which I purchased … not watching through a smart tv or HBO Max? The app is using the microphone to spy on my activities while I am not using the app. WTF. So, guess what, the phone is no longer in the same room with me and if it rings my apple watch will notify me. But that doesn’t solve the REAL issue. My privacy. Did I give Facebook permission to use the microphone to listen and analyze what I am doing? No. Another solution would be to just delete the app from my phone all together and only access Facebook from a computer with a VPN active. You hear that Facebook? Well, thousands and thousands of my readers heard me and right now they are thinking the exact same thing. I don’t need you Facebook. But you need us. Their outage the other day is going to cost them more than just ad revenue. People are going to wake up and get tired of being bombarded by stupid fucking ads and just stop using the app all together. And let’s be honest, you really don’t need to tell the entire fucking world every event play by play in your life. You really are not that interesting. There is a thing called group text you can use that will update the people who actually want to hear from you. You might notice I am not posting as much on Facebook, for a variety of reasons. I’m really not that interesting either … entertaining maybe. Sometimes life can be perfectly okay without having to share it with anyone on a smartphone or computer. Are you taking those photos of your vacation for you or for your followers? Because most of your followers secretly hate you when you brag about how great your semi-ordinary life is. I see all the bad photoshop apps that are producing shitty results and I just laugh. When your nose disappears and you have no pores it is the first sign of a bad photoshop job. Just be you. You can’t fool anyone in real life. Those extra pounds and that turkey neck can only hide under a turtleneck. 666. That is the magic number of calories you can eat at each meal, if you only ate 3 times a day. You can drink that in your morning coffee and creamer without even blinking.


Venom 2 released this past weekend and is currently the number 1 movie in the world. If you liked the first one, you will like the sequel. Addams Family sequel also came out and it was cute, but the plot was kind of lame. They go on a family vacation. Sorry if that ruined it for you, but you’re not a ten year old child and you probably aren’t going to take your kids. But when it comes out on video or Redbox, you should see it.

If you absolutely can’t stay away from Facebook, then start counting the sponsored ads in your newsfeed. When you see, 100 … will you consider closing it for a day? Excuse me while I disappear into the Game of Thrones.



Willing To Recommend 111SKIN

 I will be the first to admit that I am guilty of always wanting to try new beauty products. If I could give my younger self some advice, skincare would be it. Growing up as a teen I had a high amount of testosterone, which resulted in blemishes, acne, blackheads, … you get it. As a teen it dramatically affects your self confidence, no matter how cute or hot you are.  I was on tetracycline and at a young age learned at 3 step face cleaning routine. Then later in life I was introduced to Proactive. I know they are still around, I just haven’t seen any of their advertisements on television. I think back to what my routine was compared to what I do today and it makes me laugh. Today I have the help of ultrasonic cleaning tools, red light LED therapy, expensive masks, and my secret weapon … 111Skin 3 phase anti blemish booster. That little green bottle above. Yes at first it appears to be really expensive, but ask yourself … what would you pay to have beautiful, clean, clear blemish-free skin? $135 every couple of months really isn’t that bad. With Proactive it is always a 3 step process. I just use a few drops after washing my face. Then use a moisturizer. Done. Pretty simple actually.


Now if you joined Ipsy, my favorite beauty box/bag company … you would know that they sometimes put this in the monthly bags and sometimes they even put it for sale in the daily sales events. Ipsy has thousands and thousands of customers so sometimes the really good stuff goes like within minutes. So at 7 am Denver time, they put new items online. Now you’re going to think this is crazy, but you can actually get the 3 phase online now for only $18, … not $135. Damn. Yep, scored me another one. 111Skin caters to the celebrities, and some of their products are so damn expensive you’d have to be a celebrity to buy them. However, I think that if you take care of your skin now, you won’t have to pay for expensive plastic surgery/salon treatments later in life. So if you didn’t sign up previously, go score a free bag, and then go back to the online daily sales items and score the 3 phase. That is, if you know someone who has skin concerns. I don’t know anyone who WANTS to look old. If your skin is beautiful and glowing, then you don’t need to spend a lot of money on concealers and make-up. Oh and if you are wondering what do “I” get if you sign up? Points. Points eventually turn into free products. Nothing super exciting, but I like points. I love getting membership rewards points on my American Express card.

DISCLAIMER: Other than points, I was not paid for this review.



Chinese Warlord

So not only do I share DNA with the princess, I also am from a Chinese warlord, and an emperor of Japan. How is that for cool?

It is kind of cool that I share the same DNA as my ancestors. I found this artist’s rendition of Cao Cao, and I have to say with my goatee and eyebrows I look a lot like him. What if, somehow I am like him reborn hundreds of years later. I think I need to do some more research on him and his dynasty. I definitely have the whole samurai man bun down. When I let my hair down it goes past my nipples and from behind, it cascades down my back. My 30ish% European ancestry now explains why I don’t have typical straight wirelike hair, and instead have soft silky smooth hair instead. It actually is naturally curly which is super unusual for Asians. I happen to know for a fact that some people pay hundreds of dollars for perms that don’t last. Watch Fresh off the Boat, and there is an episode where they both get perms. I didn’t know it, but evidently when you are successful (in Asian families) you get a perm. Sadly Fresh off the Boat was cancelled, but I did buy all of the seasons on Vudu for like $30. Since I was raised in a white military family, I didn’t learn any Asian customs, other than taking off your shoes at the front door. I don’t walk around in socks, I wear my Birks and socks inside and my running shoes outside. So my curiosity has gotten the best of me and I really want to know more of my father’s lineage. Fortunately for me, CRIGenetics discounted the report 20% so I bought it. If anything or anyone exciting or interesting shows up I will share it with y’all.


For my Husker friends, it looks like the government is finally releasing some statistics, like how many are hospitalized.  You can check it out by clicking here. For some stupid reason Nebraska stopped reporting numbers back in May. And they don’t do testing, so you really have no clue what the real numbers are like.

260,199 Cases

448 Active Hospitalizations

2379 Deaths

Just remember that only about 66.06% are fully vaccinated (in Nebraska), so 1/3 of the population are at risk.  1,040,196 people in Nebraska are fully vaccinated. If you think about it, that is not great. The percent partially vaccinated, meaning only 1 shot, 5.49%.


Famous People Report

CRIGenetics can go back as far as 50 generations of family ancestry DNA. I was pretty surprised to see the Princess of Wales smiling at me. Of course all her offspring share the same mtDNA Haplogroup. This report was only $10 and totally worth it. Naturally they had another report to sell me when I got this one. It was like $90, so I passed. Given the correct information someone could really maximize their life longevity.




White Asian

So, … where are YOU from?  A common question that people ask you when you are first introduced. It is a simple way to get to know someone better. When someone is of the same place, chances are you have a lot in common. All my life I have always been telling people that I am from Vietnam, but I was adopted into an American military family at 4 months. Well imagine MY surprise when I decided to take a DNA test to discover my roots. Turns out I am NOT 100% Vietnamese. Wait, what? Yep, the proof is in the science. I am only 45.6% Vietnamese. Not even HALF. Yep, I am blown away. Looks like all those years of Asians calling me “White Asian”, with 31.4% of European lineage — they weren’t so far off. Yep, looks like my dad wasn’t Asian after all. How crazy is that? When you are adopted you don’t have any medical history. You are just out of luck. Not anymore.


So initially I looked up 23 and me, which is heavily advertised for DNA testing. However, this other company, CRI Genetics, does a plethora of detailed information that tells you more than your own doctor. And these tests don’t lie. You are not self diagnosing yourself like you normally do with WebMD. You are getting actual real scientific data that proves YES or NO that you do or do not have a medical condition. Like for instance, I had no idea that I am lactose intolerant. So all those hot milked frothy Starbucks laced with hormonal milk literally were making me sick. And did you know that 90% of the world can’t stomach milk, except Europeans for some strange reason. Although I have never had a dairy issue, other than drinking hot milk. Maybe since I am part European that has something to do with the genetics. The report also told me that I do NOT have a sensitivity to gluten. Yay me. I knew it all along. I had a friend who self diagnosed herself as a celiac patient and thus refused to eat “gluten” or any carbs. Except you can get carbs from other things that don’t have gluten. It is kind of scary that all it takes is 2 mouth swabs of spit and you can literally find out all kinds of genetic DNA information.  Turns out that you inherit all kinds of things from your ancestors. Most parents worry that they will pass a genetic medical condition to their children. So if you are curious and want to investigate even further. The site is CRIGenetics, and don’t buy it right away. Look around the site, and wait for the pop up to give you the 50% discount.


After you purchase they mail you a kit, you swab it and about 2 weeks later your results show up on their website. I found out my lineage 50 generations. I also opted for the additional “Who might you be related to that is famous” report. I should get it in a few days. If anyone cool shows up I will be sure to share it with y’all.



Shang-Chi — Marvel’s Newest Hero

This past weekend Shang-Chi was released in theaters exclusively for 45 days — later  going to Disney+ premiere for an additional $30, just like Black Widow. So if you really wanted to see it, you had to venture out into public. Thankfully everyone was at a college football game this weekend, so theaters were not so packed as you might think they would be. If you think I am going to ruin it for you and you are planning to stop reading … you’re wrong. I like to let my readers make an educated decision for themselves.
I will add a few thoughts, such as … Awkafina is the new Asian girl sidekick, like she has been cast in many of her other films. If you have watched any Asian film lately, you know who she is, or at least her rather unique sounding voice. She was the dragon in Raya. Okay, now you got it. Sadly it appears she has been typecast as the weird comic relief just like the fat kid in Spiderman. I don’t even remember the name of the star, … and like most Asian movies, it is a lot of kung fu martial arts fighting. As I sat through the predictable fight scenes, I thought “I could never be a movie star. Too much physical effort.” And I certainly wouldn’t want to be cast as a comic relief sidekick. Why do Asians always get such shitty roles?
Also, Asians do NOT all look alike. Trust me on this one. Although growing up with an identical twin, I can see how a lot of people might think we look alike when you only know 2 Asian kids and they are twin brothers. Funny right? Anyway, as a writer I felt the plot was kind of weak. I was confused as to who the villain was and what was the motive of doing what they were doing. Right. The special effects of some glowing circle boomerangs just didn’t do it for me. They were also not explained. Where did they come from? How do they work? What is their magic? Can anyone use them? Do they talk to you? Why do they glow sometimes and other times they don’t? Okay I am an old 48 year old man and I couldn’t get it. I doubt that a bunch of teenage kids or youngers are going to decipher the code. Btw, almost every Asian actor in the show you will recognize from some other show or movie. OR maybe you won’t. Again, bad with names, but if you watched the new Star Trek Discovery, the mean Asian admiral has a role. So if you liked her there, you might like her in this one.  There is ONE cameo from the MCU which “might” tie things in, and that is Wong, from Dr. Strange. Also, you do not really know the timeline. If this character is part of the MCU, did he just appear AFTER the Thanos snap? Did they just recast Crazy Rich Asians in this production? I think so.
At any rate, if you are wondering if it is worth it to go see this in the theaters, my answer is … no. You will be disappointed like me. Confused. And wondering if you will ever get those 2 hours of your life back. Watch it when it is free on Disney+.

And on a side note, a month ago there were about 50k new cases of COVID a day, and as of TODAY 301,138 new cases yesterday. Bringing total of 40,382,181 cases in the United States. 650,998 deaths. Wasn’t that football game great this weekend? Yup, all of them were super spreaders. Not a single mask to be seen on national television. Well it only takes about a week now for the delta variant to strike hard and fast. I’ll keep y’all posted. I predict that we will see an exponentially unusually high number of deaths in the next 30 days. It won’t be a thousand a day dying. It will be in the tens of thousands.

If you take the number of abortions, 750k (data from 2018), and divide that by 365, you get over 2,000 abortions/deaths a day. Those figures of course are never shared with the general public like COVID deaths. So clearly, there are a lot of women out there that are having unprotected sex. Who’s fault is it? The guy not wearing the condom, or the ovulating woman? MOST women know when they are most fertile. If you know there is a slight chance of having a baby, why take the risk? The supreme court in Mexico just legalized abortions, so Texas women now have another option. I hear they do a lot of cosmetic plastic surgery down there for real cheap. So they say on Botched.





WIIFM Syndrome

Wii FM? No, not Nintendo Wii. It actually stands for “What’s In It For Me”. That is what is going on in the economy right now. What appears to be a labor shortage is actually a WIIFM syndrome on a national level. Pretend for just a moment YOU are the unemployed person who was working that crappy minimum wage job that for whatever reason, … CLOSED and furloughed you. Sure you “could” go get another help wanted job, but it would be another sucky job with shitty customers yelling at you for whatever stupid reason they felt you were their slave. Sounds enticing doesn’t it? Oh wait, it gets better. There is an outbreak at almost every place you apply, and you know this because you asked around. It isn’t hard to find out that the staff has COVID.


The reality is there isn’t a labor shortage, what there is … is the owner of whatever company is short staffed is a greedy son of a bitch and doesn’t want to share in the profits. Wait, what? Yep, you heard me right. Think about it for just a second, the LARGEST richest companies in the world, … let’s use Amazon AND Walmart as an example, … are fucking greedy bastards. WHY should ONE man hold so much wealth? Why should ONE family control the retail market? WE, as consumers continue to support them with our voting dollars. If all the people in the world, stopped shopping at their company, they would go out of business. Look at what COVID did to thousands of businesses. No customers, no company. Cruise to Italy anyone? Walmart could afford to pay every single employee $50k a year and it wouldn’t even feel a dent in the profits. And why do they need billions and billions of dollars for ONE family? That’s right, they don’t.


You have a choice. You can go to a small business owned by a single individual and help them out. You can stop your Amazon Prime membership. But you won’t. Because the reality is those two companies provide a good and service at a cost effective, cheaper price. It has already been proven by many companies that have increased employee salaries that they have a decrease in employee turnover, and an increase in job satisfaction. Competition for good or great employees is going to be at an all time high. Employers would rather steal the competition than to hire an unemployed laid off employee.
Today is the official day that the extra unemployment bonus ends. That means there will be a lot of people forced to go back to work. I know of a ton of folks who kept saying “Why should I go work for less money when I can sit on my ass and play video games all day long?” Right, exactly. That is the mentality of the unemployed unhirable American. They don’t want to work. They want to live off the government and get free handouts. The problem with that is when you do that, then there is no incentive for our younger generation to educate themselves and get better jobs. You know, the ones that require an actual associates or bachelors degree. Considering the number of students who are not vaccinated and not wearing masks, we will see how many can actually make it four years without dropping out or dying. First year freshmen (and women) have the highest dropout rate. I can think of a dozen friends who started and then never finished. And then they wonder why they are stuck in a low paying, labor intensive job. Well, we all make choices and sometimes those choices are not the best financially.


If you ARE looking for a better tomorrow, dust of that resume, activate your LinkedIn Premium membership for a month and add something IMPRESSIVE to your current job/position. Let your network know you are looking for a new challenge, and let THEM check out their company job listings. You never know, your next opportunity could just be a phone call, text or update away.

And some updated numbers from the New York Times.

Cases 161,327 +8% 40,004,444
Tests 1,548,091 +30%
Hospitalized 102,734 +11%
Deaths 1,560 +55% 648,264

Isn’t that kind of interesting? 40 million cases. And kind of weird that it is all 4’s. Of course we all know that number is extremely under reported as we know that there are millions and millions of infected people who won’t even get tested. Have you noticed how all the testing drive up centers are closed yet the number of infections is exponentially higher than it was 2 years ago. As I told my mother, the vaccine is not a cure, it is more like a flu shot on steroids. Like the flu shot, it is preventative measures, just like a mask and a condom. Don’t like the outcome of wearing either, well, you might get pregnant, COVID and both of you might die.


And on another depressing note, did you know that over 750k abortions happen every year in the United States. That number actually is higher, as I couldn’t get recent numbers. The church of Satan calls those “human sacrifices” for their church, so they like abortions. As much as I hate to admit it, I would have to agree. As a pro LIFE advocate, I think life should be cherished, not disposed of because it is “inconvenient” for someone. I personally have interfered with 2 ladies who were faced with aborting a fetus. In BOTH cases they were so thankful I was there to convince them to do the right thing. Both of those little girls grew up to be wonderful women, … thanks to me. Hey, I’m an earth angel. That’s what I do. I save lives.


Imagine just for a moment, my biological Vietnamese mother felt having 2 more babies was too much for her. A widowed mother, alone with no income, … so she decides to just “take care of it.” Well, then I wouldn’t be here. Yeah, … I hope that has an impact on any lady out there who thinks that a baby is too much of an inconvenience. Get with the program and use some damn birth control.


It is officially Monday, Labor Day in the United States, which means new episodes of Billions, Evil, Naked & Afraid, and Naked & Afraid love series are all available for your viewing pleasure. I’m a fan of all 4 and gotta say, Evil is pretty wicked. Gossip Girl reboot was good, but it was no Serena & Blair.




Texas Taliban?

Okay so I have been seeing all kinds of reference that Texas is now a Taliban type of environment. I also have seen people referencing getting the shot to the same tune as the Jewish holocaust. I know right? WTF. NOT EVEN CLOSE. I did watch an interview with a Planned Parenthood in Texas where the doctor said he was seeing 60 women a day for abortions and now he only sees … ready? THREE. So 57 women are going to soon be mommys! Yes I know there are tears streaming down their sad faces. I told you, cry me a river because that is what is going to happen. I have also seen many references to illegal abortions, primarily a coat hanger reference, which what was done decades ago when abortions were illegal.



There are also a lot of groups that feel that men should be given involuntary vasectomies. Which if you think about it, is a good and bad idea. Sure there won’t be any unwanted pregnancies, but there will be a lot of rape that goes on. Just no proof that it actually happened. Maybe one day guys will wake up and realize they don’t need to have the ability to reproduce. After the snip things still work, they still have sex, and in fact, some of them actually end up having more sex. I know of a lot of married couples that the daddy got snipped after baby number 2. If they do it right after the baby is born it is practically free. Like I said before it really isn’t about “My body right”, it is about someone controlling your rights. Women can get the morning after pill and have for a long time. Some women have these little sticks put into their body to trick them into thinking they are pregnant so they can have all the sex they want and never get pregnant. So if you are a guy, your insurance should cover a vasectomy, which is completely reversible if you one day decide you want an 18 year financial emotional commitment. And honestly guys, have you actually thought about realistically having kids one day? Like, a boy and a girl? What are their names? What are the activities that you want to do with that little money drain? Do you like shitty diapers and having no sleep? A screaming unreasonable little loudspeaker that won’t shut up … ever? Hmmm… then maybe planting your seed isn’t for you. If you don’t want to raise it or have any part of raising it, then having kids isn’t for you. Just saying. Someone has to say it. Women talk about their one day family and all their kids secret baby names. Guys, … eh, not so much. Before you ruin someone’s life and their kid, think about it carefully. Get that vasectomy, never tell your girlfriend/wife until you both decide it time to carry on the family lineage, and just reverse it. It is an outpatient surgery and she doesn’t even have to know.  In the meantime, have all the awesome hot sex you can and never worry about a paternity test.

It is officially LABOR DAY WEEKEND!!! In Denver a Taste of Colorado is going on downtown and the annual Cherry Creek Arts Festival is taking over Cherry Creek north. Have a fun and safe holiday weekend!
