"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”"

"An ardent supporter of the hometown team should go to a game prepared to take offense, no matter what happens." - Robert Benchley

YouTube - Darth Vader Attack in LT8!!! - " During NUS SSA1201 lecture on the 30th October, 1400 to 1600, Darth Vader came with DEATH!! But thank goodness Jedi came to help! =D
Our lecturer, Alexius Pereira, just paused and drank water. Then continued. =.="

How to get pregnant from a blowjob - "Oral conception. Impregnation via the proximal gastrointestinal tract in a patient with an aplastic distal vagina. Case report... Just before she was stabbed in the abdomen she had practiced fellatio with her new boyfriend and was caught in the act by her former lover. The fight with knives ensued. She had never had a period and there was no trace of lochia after the caesarian section... A plausible explanation for this pregnancy is that spermatozoa gained access to the reproductive organs via the injured gastrointestinal tract. It is known that spermatozoa do not survive long in an environment with a low pH (Jeffcoate 1975), but it is also known that saliva has a high pH and that a starved person does not produce acid under normal circumstances... The fact that the son resembled the father excludes an even more miraculous conception"

Conduct Unbecoming: Political correctness is over the top at my job. What can I do about it? - "Q: I have a problem with two of my bosses. One of them is an outspoken radical anarchist vegan ultra-feminist who refers to herself as a dyke. The other is just a feminist. At work, we have a "positive and progressive atmosphere" where what matters most about any type of interaction is "impact versus intent"... I was reprimanded once because my boss overheard my conversation with a co-worker about my girlfriend... She was disgusted that I was talking about my inappropriate and immoral relationship. She said that because I mentioned my "girlfriend," she could only assume I'm a pedophile, because a "girl" is a prepubescent woman... I was corrected for referring to one of our members as a "wonderful lady." It turns out lady is also sexist and classist. It can be hard to be productive when I'm always walking on eggshells
A: Your office sounds like as much fun as an impacted tooth. I don't see anything "positive and progressive" about older women with more power using the young male in the office as their personal piñata... You say you love what you do, but how can you when you're constantly under siege for the crime of having an Adam's apple?"

How scrabble has been hijacked by geeks (and why it's a four-letter fiasco) - "Those words! What's 'nye' for starters? Is that Aneurin Bevan, the Welsh politician, or Bill Nye, the U.S. TV host? A flock of pheasants, apparently. But there is no point in asking Richards or his rivals. They don't know. They hardly ever know. Knowing is not the point... Most of the [Scrabble] stars would not be George Eliot readers or, indeed, voracious readers of any kind. They are computer people, mathematicians, scientists, so the game they play is essentially a test of programming."

If Web Browsers Were Women - "Safari: She brings her iFriends with her without asking you when you invite her home
Internet Explorer: For most, she's the first woman they tried. She's really easy but can get you infected"

Women "lie, cheat and steal" - "Four out of ten (42%) would lie about contraception in order to get pregnant, in spite of the wishes of their partner... One bizarre finding was that a third of women (33%) said they would stay with their husband if they found out he was a "secret transvestite", but only half that number (17%) would put up with him if he refused to wash"

Should Men Care That Male Birth Control Options Are Languishing? - "Warren Farrell... argues that men can become victims when, say, a woman in a committed relationship actively manipulates a man into having and raising children that the man wasn't ready for by "forgetting" to take birth control pills. And he points to evidence that suggests some 10 percent of babies turn out not to be the progeny of the expected father when random DNA tests are done, suggesting to Farrell that many men help raise and support children who are not actually theirs... There are women who seem to think men are Viagra-toting Neanderthals who have little commitment or tolerance for the intricacies of contraception... This post from the blog Feministing, for example, heaps scorn on a male Gizmodo poster who admits that the details of a recently announced experimental form of birth control—a radio-controlled sperm "tap"—make him queasy. That procedure, according to New Scientist, would involve injecting an 800-micron-long silicon polymer valve into a man's vas deferens with a hypodermic needle that would theoretically neutralize sperm by blocking it from passing. For the record, the description of that particular procedure makes me a bit queasy, too"

Mission Stencil Story - "The mission stencil story is an interactive, choose-your-own-adventure story that takes place on the sidewalks of the Mission district in San Francisco. It is told in a new medium of storytelling that uses spraypainted stencils connected to each other by arrows. The streetscape is used as sort of an illustration to accompany each piece of text. Its a love story with 2 characters who start in different locations"

Animator vs Animation

Asimov - The Relativity of Wrong - "The writer told me he was majoring in English literature, but felt he needed to teach me science... in every century people have thought they understood the universe at last, and in every century they were proved to be wrong. It follows that the one thing we can say about our modern "knowledge" is that it is wrong. The young man then quoted with approval what Socrates had said on learning that the Delphic oracle had proclaimed him the wisest man in Greece. "If I am the wisest man," said Socrates, "it is because I alone know that I know nothing." the implication was that I was very foolish because I was under the impression I knew a great deal... 'When people thought the earth was flat, they were wrong. When people thought the earth was spherical, they were wrong. But if you think that thinking the earth is spherical is just as wrong as thinking the earth is flat, then your view is wronger than both of them put together.' The basic trouble, you see, is that people think that "right" and "wrong" are absolute; that everything that isn't perfectly and completely right is totally and equally wrong"
If you're not first, you're last. If you're not perfect, you're a hypocrite. No compromises, no fudges.

Game theory explains dinner-party dates. - "It is a truth universally acknowledged that the available, sociable, and genuinely attractive man is a character highly in demand in social settings... Shouldn't there be about as many highly eligible and appealing men as there are attractive, eligible women?... game theory predicts, and empirical studies of auctions bear out, that auctions will often be won by "weak" bidders, who know that they can be outbid and so bid more aggressively, while the "strong" bidders will hold out for a really great deal... Where have all the most appealing men gone? Married young, most of them—and sometimes to women whose most salient characteristic was not their beauty, or passion, or intellect, but their decisiveness"
Translation: women who think they can afford to be fussy end up with no one, and lesser-endowed women who are more proactive/less fussy get the good men
