"Stuff white people like"

This book by Christian Lander is my new favorite. Perhaps it's because I like his first name or because "Asian girls" are included on the list(#11). LOL. A few disclaimers:

1/ The book is not meant to be racist at all since it is written by a white guy.

2/You may or may not agree with everything said in the book, but you'll surely find it interesting. It is not supposed to be a research paper with detailed survey from a large sample of the population but a (somewhat random) collections of personal experiences and comments. The tone of the book is actually quite humorous and intelligent with a hint of sarcasm.

3/No, I haven't finished reading the book yet (and do not intend to do so soon). The book is only 224 pages, but it is one of those you can read a bit at a time and savor the rest for later.

That's said here's a few things that I've just learned that I have in common with the "white people" (and lots of Etsians, I believe!) :)

#30 Wrigley Field (Yay for Chicago!)
