    In two weeks. Plan to spend the first few days in a Hanoi AirBnb getting over jet lag and maybe Brockdawging a backpacker or two.

    What are the can't miss spots if I get myself out of bed while in town? food spots specifically.

    Damn right, @JohnnyB we need a write up of your adventures. Vietnam is definitely on my list. Maybe visit for just a couple of weeks since I'm basing myself in Thailand but I'll get there soon. We hear about @Skins and his adventures and misadventures (well, we used to), but I'm curious about other perspectives. Except that crazed Hindu, @wanderluster. I don't even want to think of what he got up to with that sweet little Vietnamese girl, @Nope Nope. I'd have to rinse my brain out with bleach afterwards.

    I have not been to Hanoi so I can't help you out. Looks like a fun city though. @Nope Nope should have some advice for you.

    I've been talking to locals in nha Trang and HCMC, and they do not like Hanoi.

    It seems the hostility is alive and well. A lot of southerners don't like the people from Hanoi. And Vietnamese hate the Chinese because they think China is taking over their country. And the Khmers hate the Vietnamese because they think the Viets are taking over their country.

    Can't we all get along? :)

    I don't think we can. Humans are tribalistic by nature. We, by default, hang out and trust people who are "like us". But there are subsets of groups that exist.

    For example, southern viets hate northern viets. 2 separate tribes. But bring in the Chinese, southern viets and northern viets (who hate one another) might unite because chinese are now the threat ( the outside tribe). Let's take it to the next level, let's assume the blacks of Africa are spreading to Asia. By nature, the viets and Chinese will unite and perceive the blacks as the outsiders threat. Humans always take side with whomever looks similar to us.

    So we are always taking sides based on whichever threat is in front of us. It's kind of like an evolved survival mechanism. But it's also a curse since we always have to perceive a threat to our survival.

    I've wondered if aliens from another planet were to threaten the survival of humans on earth, would we all come together to defeat them. Imagine the Russians, Chinese, and Americans all joining together to defeat a common enemy.

    We would all unite to defeat the aliens. Look at the movie Independence Day. We would unite as human race vs alien race. Hollywood has made a fortune playing off our tribalistic instinct. Quotes like "an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us", "we unite as one", and "you'll have to get through all of us...." make the audience feels good since it's subtlely telling them "hey, you're never alone". Hollywood knows what buttons to press to make us feel good. But this also apply in sports as well. Sports is the biggest tribalistic orgy there is. Fans think they are part of the team. Ever notice how they refer to their team as "we". "We need to sign player xyz" or "We need to do this". It's the biggest sham there it. Fans are constantly shelling out money for cable access, tickets, parking, overpriced concessions, jerseys, hats, and everything under the sun to prove their "commitment" to the team's survival and success.

    Heck, I enjoy a good football gave when I have a few bucks on it. But I see as what it is...it's a game for entertainment. Once it's over, I resume back to life. But for most men, sports is the only way to show their emotions. Only way to show their manhood. It's sad.

    He met this chick that is lavishing him with fine jewelry and exotic trips, but he is too scared to admit it for fear of losing his fan base.

    There is actually a theory that he is in his mums basement in Ohio making all this stuff up and he has never been outside the US let alone to SEA. Thats why no one has ever met him or you never see any photos that weren't google sourced.

    I'm on the fence on that one until we get an actual sighting.

    Shit! You guys got me all figured out. :oops: Keep that between us please. Don't ruin the SMP brand.

    Haha still alive. Still single. Sorry I haven't been posting. I've been focused on another project and I need to get away from my laptop at night.

    I actually have a bunch of posts typed up. Do you want three posts in three days? :)

    It's a fine delicacy my friend. What's your itinerary?

    I recommend joining Vietnam Cupid. Badoo is also a good free app for Vietnam.

    And if you want to support SMP please book your hotels through my Agoda link. Xin cam on! :cool:
