WTF! kobe Bryant had 80 points in a non overtime game. I am impressed to say the least. That is the most amazing thing I have heard of in like the last 10 years of the NBA. He has solidified himself as one of the top 10 (or better) of all time with a single performance. I don't know what else to say. 80 points?
No of course its not decade specific, but in the 80's people converted to it. It got the respect it deserved. Now as you have just illustrated, people are resorting away from curley (and beautiful hair) to straightening, and subsequently killing their atractive distinctiveness.
still it can't be as bad as moving back home and ending the high and mighty feeling of college domination and independence waiting, waiting untill a job desires you and you can move out on your own and have things to complain about
