The story behind Sriracha
With a distinctive bottle and taste, Sriracha has gone from an unpronounceable challenge to a staple sauce for many Americans. In the U.S. alone, $60 million worth of the sauce was sold last year alone.
But it wasn’t always such a prevalent item on store shelves. David Tran, the man responsible for popularizing the hot sauce, had a long journey beforehand:
When North Vietnam’s communists took power in South Vietnam, Tran, a major in the South Vietnamese army, fled with his family to the U.S. After settling in Los Angeles, Tran couldn’t find a job — or a hot sauce to his liking.
So he made his own by hand in a bucket, bottled it and drove it to customers in a van. He named his company Huy Fong Foods after the Taiwanese freighter that carried him out of Vietnam.

one day i want to just turn off my cell phone, leave it in the corner of my room, and take a bus all the way to jericho. i’ll stop whenever i see a shop i think i’d like to walk around and i’ll eat a lot. i’ll sail in the waters and when i get tired, i’ll lie down and just bob with the waves, gazing at the sky. maybe i’ll even capsize for old time’s sake! i’ll bury myself in the sand and then come out using my leg strength. i’ll get a lot of ice cream and head home. i’ll sit on a bench in front of the sky train station and watch people come and go, too busy to live their lives. i’ll be happy and i’ll take a nap; when i wake, it’ll be dark and i’ll walk home through the park instead of going along the streets so that i can envelop myself in the darkness. i can be silent and hidden in the shadows and i’ll know what it’s like to be slenderman. i’ll get home, take a long bath, and fall asleep comfortably wherever i please.
Is it just me or is ombre hair just like a phase or something
