There's a good fireworks stand there. As long as they don't close that, he can name it whatever he wants.

Leave it to a Nguyen percenter to buy up the whole town.  Farking assholes keep getting richer.

I knew it. My theory was right! Wyoming would be the next pawn to fall in the Communists' wily game of Dominoes.

Laramie may have the boot, but you know what?  It's still Laramie.

One of the things that makes Wyoming great is its lack of people.

Hope folks keep bashing it - keeps the rifraf out!

I live a few miles east in Cheyenne so I'm getting a kick out of this. The local reaction has been full of derp though. Enjoy: http://www.wyomingnews.com/articles/2013/08/08/news/01top_08-08-13.txt

Hope you like the cold and snow. I went on a 18 day elk/mulie hunt and let me tell you, it was freeeeeeezing cold. All my cousins were talking about how they couldn't wait for winter to go snowmobiling. All I could think of was I couldn't wait to get to a hot tub and thaw out. I should note that it was only "fall" when I was there.

By the way, this guy is not totally crazy. Coffee has become a very large part of Viet Nam's economy. For decades, though, after the war, they have been essentially on the sidelines when it came to the big money. They grew lots of it, some of it very high quality, but somebody else bought it from them, roasted it, and sold it at severe markup to Western countries. Looks like somebody has decided to cut out the middle man. If it works, his wife love him long time.
