Mood: So... very... tired...
Currently listening to: Tonight, tonight - Smashing Pumpkins
Gonna leave a quick update as i'm feeling pretty tired...
Well, didn't do much yesterday... helped my ma with the housework, played Generals with my brother and then went out in the evening for a few drinks with Joa at Souled Out. Seems like everyone has disappeared for the CNY holidays... :(
Today i did even less, going out for japanese food with my parents, followed by more Generals with Paul and then dinner with my entire Chinese family in the evening in order to prep for Chinese New Year... good food all in all and i finally got my first few ang pows! ;)
And that was about it... pretty damn bored for the last two days (then again, i'm not exactly in the mood to write my blog at the moment so i might be skipping on a few details - meh. So sue me!) and am hoping that it'll pick up since a few more of my cousins are arriving from Australia tommorow... Hrmmm... family clubbing? We'll see... ;p
Strangest thing is that for the last three or four days i've found myself falling asleep in the afternoons and very early in the evenings, which is very unusual for me (i'm not one for naps), and i've been having the strangest dreams...
Anyways, i've got to sleep now... *yawnz*
TOP 10 IMPOSSIBLE INVENTIONS THAT WORK - "When Leonardo da Vinci sketched out an impossible invention, fifteenth-century scholars probably put him down. Forget it, Leon. If machines could fly, we'd know about it. Throughout history, experts tell innovators that their inventions are impossible. A few examples: The English Academy of Science laughed at Benjamin Franklin when he reported his discovery of the lightning rod, and the Academy refused to publish his report. A gathering of German engineers in 1902 ridiculed Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin for claiming to invent a steerable balloon. (Later, Zeppelin airships flew commercially across the Atlantic.) Major newspapers ignored the historic 1903 flight of the Wright brothers airplane because Scientific American suggested the flight was a hoax, and for five years officials in Washington, D.C. did not believe that the heavier-than-air machine had flown. Perhaps in the 21st century the following inventions will be standard science, and a history student may wonder why 20th-century pundits disregarded them." A must read by far! ;)
The Killer Elite - "Cpl. Joshua Ray Person, and the vehicle team leader, twenty-eight-year-old Sgt. Brad Colbert -- both Afghan War veterans -- have already reached a profound conclusion about this campaign: that the battlefield that is Iraq is filled with “fucking retards." There’s the retard commander in their battalion who took a wrong turn near the border, delaying the invasion by at least an hour. There’s another officer, a classic retard, who has already begun chasing through the desert to pick up souvenirs thrown down by fleeing Iraqi soldiers: helmets, Republican Guard caps, rifles. There are the hopeless retards in the battalion-support sections who screwed up the radios and didn’t bring enough batteries to operate the Marines’ thermal-imaging devices. But in their eyes, one retard reigns supreme: Saddam Hussein -- “We already kicked his ass once," says Person, spitting a thick stream of tobacco juice out his window. “Then we let him go, and he spends the next twelve years pissing us off even more. We don’t want to be in this shit-hole country. We don’t want to invade it. What a fucking retard." Rolling Stone article of a Marine platoon during the Iraqi war - gotta love those leathernecks!

Top 2003 Darwin Award winners - "At work, Manoel Messias Batista Coelho was responsible for cleaning out the storage tanks of gasoline tanker trucks. He had been employed in that capacity for two months when he ran afoul of fuel. The 35-year-old began to fill a tanker with water, a standard safety procedure that forces flammable vapor out of the container. He returned an hour later to check whether the water level was high enough to proceed. But he had trouble deciding, because it was so DARK inside the tanker. A resourceful employee, Manoel forgot the very reason why he was filling the tank with water when he lit a cigarette lighter to shed some light on the situation. His little test successfully determined that the water level was NOT yet high enough for safety. The vapor explosion launched him through the air, and he landed in the company parking lot 100 meters away. Manoel suffered severe burns, blunt force trauma, and an injury to the head that exposed his brain. Our witless car washer had learned his terminal lesson in safety by the time the firemen arrived." And THAT was the number one 2003 winner! Hrmmm... ever get the feeling that you're gonna end up on this list? ;p
