"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jellybeans." - Ronald Reagan

You Have No Soul





To the untrained eye you appear a normal human.
But deep down inside, you are cold and empty.
You are one of the Undead!
You hate the living and seek them out

Break out the holy water and sharpen the stakes!
It's time to go a-huntin'

Souls you are most compatible with: None

The OED gives one (and only one) pronunciation for "angst", namely: "air'ngst".

Of course, my sister insists that "ah'ngst" is the one (and only one) correct pronunciation.

So she has once again surpassed herself in proclaiming her linguistic authority.

One of the most irritating things about LiveJournal is the plethora of LJ clones.

As far as I know, we have had, at various points in time: DeadJournal, uJournal, GreatestJournal, Blurty, Plogs, NeedlessPanic, Aboutmylife, Minilog, JournalFen, Crazy Life, DrivelBox, Got Diary?, MindSay and Tigre Journals.

These, like their step-brother LiveJournal, are bitches to people who don't register (not remembering commenter details, for example), yet add no significant value.

The result is that people are pissed off by all these LJ-wannabe sites, since their friends are likely blogging on more than one of them.

solsetur fantasises:

You know I think if I did 'Unmasking Agagooga - Man Behind The Blog' then I'll be pimped by Mr Brown. From the stuff he has posted on mrbrown.com I'm very very sure he has an unhealthy obsession over you. It's cause for suspect muahaha...


Too bad for her; Sheena has already done an expose (of sorts) on me. Aww.

More amusing anti-Mac comments:

honestly, i dun see why SWH's comments should cause so much indignant shocks. It's not as if mac users haven't slammed microsoft users before? i am sorely anti-apple because of the sheer overwhelming numbers of times when I've encountered apple snobs. and no, i treat my PC well, and I haven't had any BSoD or viruses etc. they're just machines.. stop worshipping them! Apple comes up with good products. that's it. But Microsoft is not hell and it's not stupid people who buy it. Yes, I was told "aiyoh buy a PC, only stupid people buy PC"... grrrr... snobs. and the best retort so far "yeah i'm a snob.. I can afford to be." fine. whatever.

Isnt it ironic that Apple fans who are supposed to "Think different" all "Talk alike"?

Stupid people buy PC, gay people buy Mac.
There!


Anybody who knows a Mac fan, knows that they are incapable of logical reasoning or price/benefit analysis when it comes to Apple products.

Steve Jobs jolly-well can sell magic stones with healing properties and plenty of Mac fans will tell you how it cured their cancer/piles/AIDS.

The fact is that if Apple is the monopoly Microsoft is, we will still be using Mac LC or something that ancient, and it would still be called insanely great.

The fact that Apple fans make it their mission to irritate/flame/denigrate non-Mac fans is the very simple reason why Apple can never dominate the world.

It boils down to the fact that Apple fans pay a lot for the brand and desperately need affirmation.

The Risset Scale - "The Risset Scale blends each tone from this special octave into the next tone, over and over again. This blending, combined with the complex and ambiguous tonal information of each note, creates the illusion of an endlessly rising tone - or of an endlessly descending tone."

Christians issue gay warning on SpongeBob video - "Conservative Christian groups accuse the makers of a video starring SpongeBob SquarePants, Barney and a host of other cartoon characters of promoting homosexuality to children."

Apparently there are many unemployed engineers who are going into teaching. I thought engineering was supposed to be a "safe" degree. Ah well.


I tried what was formerly the 2nd worst Chicken Rice in Singapore (if not the world) - the one in the arts canteen, which has a sign proclaiming: "New cook, new taste". Amazingly, it has become, if anything, even worse, such that it can now compete with the worst Chicken Rice in Singapore (if not the world). Gah.

I have finally tried the legendary Bambinos at the Science Canteen. I had spaghetti carbonara, and not only were the spaghetti strands clumped together, the sauce tasted like diluted Cream of Mushroom soup. Which is an improvement, I'm told, on the last time, when it was sugared milk.
