Dot Com Pho – The Opposite Edition

We had a bigger than full house today at Dot Com Pho. Our normal Saturday reserved table can seat ten people but we had a total of 13 showed up for our Opposite Edition. We all had to squeeze a little tighter to get everyone to sit around the table. We all thought that Ed Lau would be last but he was actually fourth from last. That’s a new first.

For this edition of Dot Com Pho, I wanted to show you some of the amazing intellectual discussions that takes up the three plus hours of the pho meet up. We also wished Josh Rimer a happy birthday, watch Mr. Happy Pho serve beer to a minor (with a straw no less!), figure out the opposite of love and the opposites of a bunch of other stuff. Lastly, there was the blogging cat. Yes, it’s a cat with its own blog.

If you wish to get into deep intellectual discussions that will blow your brains out, then join us for the next edition of Dot Com Pho. Follow me on Twitter for the time and location of the next meet up.

      Have you ever had avocado flavored ice cream? Pretty good.

      That jackfruit shake is something I’m dying to try.

      1. I actually have…and you’re absolutely correct, they are soo good…lol

    2. I agree. lol! Maybe it’s really an avocado flavored ice cream. craving for that. =)

        1. Never even thought of that. I’ll have to try it. Every tried Guiness Icecream? That’s good.

          1. d3so says:

            What is guiness icecream and where can I get it?

      I know, sucks for the US 🙁
      we have to wait 4 years for another shot.

      My main team is Brasil anyways.

      1. krillz says:

        Too shitty Argentina-Germany will play next.
        I’d love to have them in the finals.

        And I somehow miss the old brasilian team, with no defence and all about tricks and goals, where letting in a goal didn’t matter as they would deliver new ones constantly. Right now they have focused on a standard team, with good defence etc, and I say they looked a lot like england’s team.

        We will see, some teams have a smoother ride than others, it all depends who you meet on your way to the finals. Easy games means more power for the finals. where teams who had tough matches get there all tired.

        1. d3so says:

          That’s true. Argentinas been doing really well.

          1. Germany and Argentina … we are going to enjoy this final.

          2. Spain took the cup … Paul was amazing. Lollzzz

  3. d3so says:

    Dang, I wanted to get first comment lol.
    I’m gonna watch the video now 😛

  4. Addy Kho says:

    hi John, I can see a World Cup replay at the background 🙂

    1. Yes you will get everything in Pho … laugh … food and great people to hang out.

    1. d3so says:

      The opposite of dog is cat!
      Opposite of Venus is mars
      opposite of boy is girl

      you get the idea.

    2. kevan says:

      hahahhaa….cat! or was that indifference?

    3. I have to agree with Ed…

      1. d3so says:

        Justify yourself. I want to know why.

        1. krillz says:

          with your reasoning of a cat being the opposite of dog has no logical way of justifying that.

          It’s like saying that a cow is the opposite of a pig.
          A pinguin is the opposite of a lion.

          Doesn’t make sense.

          Only time you can find an opposite is a logical counterpart. Rich poor. So opposite of a cat would be a not existing cat. Which is void null doesn’t exist.

        2. krillz says:

          Some words are non-opposable. For example, animal or plant species have no binary opposites (other than possible gender opposites such as lion/lioness, etc.);

          If you wan’t to study this I bet you could find an english course at your nearest uni, or read wikipedia about the topic Opposite.

          1. How can be two different animals can be opposite to each other.

    4. That should go on the back of your business cards, as one of your quotes.

      I think it summarizes your personality very well.

      I couldn’t stop laughing in the video..


  6. …and Ghana is in the quarter finals ! Good job, because the US team played very good at these tournament!

    I let u know when i will do my first 100000$ from blogging ! 🙂

  7. Kurtis says:

    Adam West was definitely the best Batman.

    1. Yes after him I like George Clooney.

  8. Is that Avocado ice cream? LOL.. Nice background in there 🙂

  9. Hi John, Oscar the blogging cat here! Thanks for showing me on your blog (and thanks to Vance for taking my video!) Wow, meow, I am sooo flattered! I just posted about the video on my own blog, mrrreow, I think that is called a backlink??? I am off to read your book now, is it really true that you can make money with blogging? If yes, I will do that and buy myself finally the best cat food available, not the healthy stuff that mommy gives me … SY

    1. Hi Oscar, say hi to SY,

      It was a pleasure to show you off to human bloggers like John who knows how to make money online.and wrote the book you’re reading. When you implement what he shares there you’ll be able to buy loads of cat food that you like.

      I look forward to posting a better quality of the video later so that you can star fully viewed with no blur.

      You would have enjoyed the food in the resataurant I think unless you never eat human food. But the subject of conversation would probably horrify you at times as when John was phylosophizing about what is the opposit of cat.

      It just goes to show that internet marketers can be a funny bunch and aren’t always obsessed with their favorite subject of making money online.


  10. Looks like a great time happening at that table. That little girl looks like she is having a blast on the iPad.

    1. d3so says:

      I thought it was a boy lol isn’t it?

      1. yeah i also thought the same too

        1. What was the reason that you though she is boy ?

    2. awesome one i must say!!!!

      1. d3so says:

        Wait, so is the kid a boy or girl?
        lol I’m just going to watch it again. 😛

        1. Looking like as girl … and expression as well.

  11. Soares says:

    Hello John,

    i agree with you opposite of dog is cat…we must look at the matching or not matching instead of looking gramatical.
    Opposite (semantics), a word that means the opposite of a word

    Best regards

  12. egg steamers says:

    With your growing numbers, you’re soon going to need to reserve a separate room or section of the restaurant!

    1. Numbers are really fluctuating. Sometime 11 or 12 and sometime only 3.

  13. Ghana won, but I was rooting for the U.S. til the end 🙂
    That little girl was so afraid of her beer with straw. It was really cute.
    That conversation at the end was ridiculous. Did you ever figure out what the opposite of hate was? Or of dog? What about the opposite of Google?

    1. d3so says:

      Wasn’t the opposite of hate, indifference?
      Opposite of dog is cat
      opposite of google is yahoo.
      Opposite of badong aka bad-wrong is gnodab
      a million points if u can guess where the last one came from.

  14. Sam Heath says:

    Ha! You’re so funny! “Intellectual discussions that will blow your brains out.” Good one!

  15. PPC Ian says:

    Another great Dot Com Pho! Blogging cat is awesome. Looking forward to the announcement of the iPad winners in an upcoming episode!

    1. d3so says:

      Who wants to bet John is going to push the deadline again to the end of next month? lol 😉

      1. He wants to get as many as people.

        He should also increase the numbers of ipad.

        Every time date extend one more ipad should be added.

  16. Some time if you are late that can you make popular and provide you more attention.

  17. tanya says:

    actually i think the opposite of dog is god….
    looks like a fun time guys, do you meet in van or in richmond?

  18. That was a tough game to watch for us in the USA. Someday I would like to join you for pho!

  19. Ary says:

    lol It just seems like a bunch of fun! Maybe some day when I’ll get to USA I’ll be joining you guys… Till then have fun!

    1. Dear they are not in USA.
