Mood: So. Very. Tired.
Currently listening to: Bathwater (Invincible Remix) - No Doubt
*NOTE: This is the second time i'm typing this (again). Had this whole thing about my assignment but am too lazy to reiterate. Fucking computer.*
Hey all, Pat here - writing in Boon's blog for today because i owe him... ;)
Who? Time for a quick recap methinks... Known Boonie boy here ever since we went to college together in Hamilton way back in... erm... '96? I remember my first meeting with Boon best from the fact that he was the only other Malaysian who couldn't speak Chinese in our Cantonese and Mandarin stronghold of a hostel - something which we got ribbed for pretty often which probably explains why we got along so well! ;)
Ah, those were the days eh? Boon, more affectionately known as 'Omelette' after one drunken affair, and i shared our formative years mainly with a group of locals who we hung around with doing a lot of underaged drinking, smoking and... er... 'smoking' (hey, remember those fake IDs which we'd get from Toronto?) ;p
Anyhow back to your normal programming... ;)
Long story short i've spent the last three days in the grip of extreme insomnia (6 hours of sleep in three days and nights) brought about by mucho smoking, extreme quantities of coffee, my mother and the sheer desperation in trying to complete my (late) assignment. Of course there was more to it than that (such as my freaking out the neighbours with my late night balcony singing, falling asleep at the wheel, depressing thoughts, nagging mother, etc, etc.) but after having typed out half a page on this only to see it disappear when the computer crashed i really can't be bothered to write about it in detail again. That and its depressing. ;p
Managed to relax a little today with some C&C with Leonard and mamak with Joa who is leaving for Singapore tommorow morning to spend the long weekend with Jules...
Anyhow, one more assignment to do this weekend and i'll be able to enjoy my Easter break. Most of the guys are busy so i have no idea as to what i'll be doing... :(
Seeing that the Curse of the Asian Man article i linked brought out a lot of interest in you guys recently i think that you should know that the same author has another entitled The Truth About Asian Women which presents a... erm... 'scientific analysis' of said truth. ;)
Here's the money shot:
"Truly, there are no average looking Asian Women. Every time you see an Asian girl walking by, you always say "Oh my God!" This could be good as in "Oh my God! I've never seen anything so beautiful!" or bad, as in "Oh my God, it's time for me to blow chunks all over the place!" Yeah, that would be bad."
"Halfies are people who are racially mixed, having some Asian blood, but also finding heritage with white people. Every time I see an Asian girl dating a white guy, I freak out and scream "Traitor!" and punch them both in their stupid faces - lousy fetish-driven bastard monkeys. Then I realize that their children will probably be super hot." (Evidently not in my case though ;p)
In other news - and this one is for Anime fans - Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence is FINALLY coming out! Loved the first one and, judging by the trailer, the second installment is looking pretty damn good! Oh yeah, if you don't happen to read Japanese the trailers can be found here. Dontcha love cyberpunk? :)
Oh, and while we're on the subject of new highly anticipated movies, i think you'll all be glad to know that Kill Bill - Volume 2 is out as well! Trailers can be found here while a review of the movie can be found here (*WARNING!* Spoiler Alert!). Apparently its better than the first one so i'll wait in eager anticipation... :)
In other news i'm still single and Iraq has gone down the shitter.
Oh yeah, just wanted to highlight one of the funniest (in a very morbid, pornographic and necrophiliac sorta way) online comics which i currently read - Sexy Losers! And may i just point out that THIS RIGHT HERE is THE funniest comic strip which i have seen in ages!!! Enjoy! ;)))
Ok, time to catch some (VERY badly needed) sleep.
The latest fashion must-have: eyeball jewellery - "In my view it is a little more subtle than (body) piercing. It is a bit of a fun thing and a very personal thing for people," said Gerrit Melles, director of the Netherlands Institute for Innovative Ocular Surgery (www.NIIOC.nl). The piece of jewellery is inserted in the conjunctiva -- the mucous membrane lining the inner surface of the eyelids and front of the eyeball -- in sterile conditions using an operating microscope in a procedure taking about 15 minutes. "Without doing any harm to the eye we can implant a jewel in the conjunctiva," Melles said. "So far we have not seen any side effects or complications and we don't expect any in the future.""
Office Workers to go Ape - "Scientists hope to convince workers to adopt an ape-like approach to arguments to assist a major new study into the similarities between chimpanzees and humans. Problems should be flagged up with a short, high-pitched "oo" rather than a shout and benevolent bosses rewarded with a primate back groom. In place of a polite "hello" and handshake, volunteers will greet guests with a soft "huh, huh", an arm extended with an open fist and an averted gaze." OO!!! OO!!! ;p
Surgeons Who Play Video Games Err Less - "All those years on the couch playing Nintendo and PlayStation appear to be paying off for surgeons. Researchers found that doctors who spent at least three hours a week playing video games made about 37 percent fewer mistakes in laparoscopic surgery and performed the task 27 percent faster than their counterparts who did not play video games." Mario saves lives?
China Executed 726 People in 2003 - "China carried out nearly two-thirds of the world's known court-ordered executions last year, and violated its own law by killing at least one man for a crime committed at age 16, according to Amnesty International. China executed at least 726 people last year, out of 1,146 reported put to death worldwide, the London-based human rights group said in its 2003 report on the death penalty. Following China, are Iran with at least 108 executions, the United States with 65, Vietnam with 64 and Saudi Arabia with 50."
Woman performs own caesarean to save baby - "A pregnant woman in Mexico gave birth to a healthy baby boy after performing a caesarean section on herself with a kitchen knife, doctors said on Tuesday. It is thought to be the first known case of a self-inflicted caesarean in which both the mother and baby survived. The unidentified 40-year-old, who lived in a rural area without electricity, running water or sanitation that was an eight-hour drive from the nearest hospital, performed the operation when she could not deliver the baby naturally." Now THAT's hardcore! Maximum respect! :o
Sicilian Blazes Put Science to the Test - "A series of spontaneous fires started in mid-January in the town of Canneto di Caronia in about 20 houses. After a brief respite last month, the almost daily fires have flared up again -- even though electricity to the village was cut off. An endless flow of scientists, engineers, police and even a few self-styled "ghostbusters" have descended on the town searching for clues to the recent spontaneous combustion of everything from fuse boxes to microwave ovens to a car. The blazes, originally blamed on the devil, have not hurt anyone." Creepy and a Reuters article no less...
