"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”"

"The best measure of a man's honesty isn't his income tax return. It's the zero adjust on his bathroom scale." - Arthur C. Clarke

Dealing with the Quarterlife Crisis

"Separate a job's meaning from its trappings

Forget about how much money a job will pay you, forget about societal prestige, and forget about what your parents and friends think about your job," says Robbins. "You have to figure out what's meaningful to you in your career, and what will warm your heart and make you want to jump out of bed each morning."

Robbins knows what she's talking about. Three weeks after she graduated from Yale University, she took the first job offer she got after being "completely seduced by the trappings. The pay was wonderful, I liked the people, I had my own office with a door, and my commute was only 15 minutes."

There was only one problem: "The work sucked," she deadpans.

She lasted for eight months but was miserable the whole time. Don't make the same mistake, she stresses."


This is not going to work in some parts.

They're talking our language - "A defining moment in the cultural imperialism of the US media giants occurred in 1983 when a nomadic, drought-plagued sub-Saharan tribe, the Tuareg, delayed its annual migration to fresh pasture by 10 days in order to catch the last episode of Dallas... English also has some impossible characteristics. ' Th' is famously difficult for foreigners. There are some rare and difficult vowels: the vowel-sound in 'bird' and 'nurse' occurs in virtually no other language. The 13 spellings for a sound like sh - shoe, sugar, issue, mansion, mission, nation, suspicion, ocean, conscious, chaperon, schist, fuschia and pshaw - are a source of weakness, not strength."

VIDEO MASTER DATING - ELENA Video -"I used to have a job with this lame video dating service. They fired me 'cause they said I was accessing people's personal records, which is a lie. So I ripped off a bunch of the videos--here's one."

Supposing ... There's only one thing worth debating online - "In the debate sparked by my gibberish outpouring, it wasn't long before rival posters began speculating about the size of their opponent's dicks. It led me to wonder - has the world of science ever investigated a casual link between penis size and male political leaning?"

Arse or Elbow? - "Do you know your arse from your elbow? Look at each picture. Is it an arse or an elbow? Click the circles to choose."
8/14. I prefer the moobs/boobs quiz.

A Mind of its Own: How Your Brain Distorts and Deceives - "Exposing the mind's deceptions and exploring how the mind defends and glorifies the ego, Dr. Cordelia Fine illustrates the brain's tendency to self-delusion. Whether it be hindsight bias, wishful thinking, unrealistic optimism, or moral excuse-making, each of us has a slew of inborn mind-bugs and ordinary prejudices that prevent us from seeing the truth about the world and ourselves. With fascinating studies to support her arguments, Dr. Fine takes us on an insightful, rip-roaringly funny tour through the brain you never knew you had."

Japan is proud home of Christ's tomb - "In A paddy-lined valley in the far north of Japan is a municipal signpost inscribed: “Tomb of Christ: next left.” Follow the winding path up into the forest and there, sure enough, is a simple mound with a large wooden cross labelled as the grave of Jesus. Nearby is a tomb commemorating Isukiri, Christ’s brother, adorned with a plastic poinsettia Christmas wreath."
