Grr. Geocities claims I have exceeded 3GB/month bandwith. Do I believe them?

"Geocities is doing it to practically everybody, as far as I've heard. Even the really small, mostly text fanfiction site belonging to a friend got hit. Maybe you should move."

And move I shall. I think. The prices are ridiculous for just a bit more bandwith - $8.95/month for 10GB/month? If 3GB/month goes so quickly, 10GB/month won't last much more.

They're gonna drive us away like this.

BANGKOK (AP)--A Thai lawmaker resigned Tuesday to douse widespread anger he caused by suggesting that Islamic countries guilty of harboring terrorists should be bombed with "pork fat bombs."

Consumption of pork is prohibited by Islam, and considered a sin.

Tinawat Marukpitak, a lawmaker from the ruling Thai Rak Thai party, was grilled for three hours by his party colleagues who blasted him for making insensitive remarks and humiliating the nation, party spokesman Suranand Vejjajiva told reporters.

"I didn't think what I did would turn out to be a big problem. My comments were personal, not of Thai Rak Thai," Tinawat told reporters after announcing his resignation from Parliament.

Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra welcomed Tinawat's decision. Tinawat will remain party member.

Tinawat triggered a massive uproar Monday by writing an open letter to U.S. President George W. Bush, in which he said Thailand was horrified by the terrorist attacks on the U.S. last Tuesday.

He wrote that the best way to strike back at Islamic countries who harbor the terrorists would be "to bomb them with pork fat bombs that are launched on cruise missiles."

On Tuesday, Tinawat said he didn't intend to humiliate Muslims. "I just want to reduce the boiling temperature of the world situation," he said.
I got zapped by the Ice Cream Freezer at Cold Storage Great World City. It was the worst zap I've ever had.

While there, I also saw this lady with a veil. However, the upper part of her chest was visible. Makes you wonder what's the point.

"Those are AC girls, mind you" - Melvin on Tuesday explaining the results of his survey - only 1-2 of 10-12 of his female friends do not engage in the works.

I realised today that Intellectual Property fits the definition of "Public Good". Tis non-excludable (with the efforts of crack rings and the proliferation of mp3s) and non-rivalrous.

There's a German Supermarket along Bukit Timah near Coronation Plaza (imaginatively named 'German Marketplace') where my sister gets Quark and other stuff. I was browsing and they sell the weirdest stuff. German Nutella (I wonder if it's different from that made in Australia), German detergent, German Nivea shampoo (which looks like the sort sold here), German window spray, German tampons (OB and Spar) and German kinder eggs (which also look like those sold here). They had this interesting looking sparkling water maker - add water and out comes your soda water. Didn't have time to see it in operation, though.

And apparently Nanyang Primary is relaxing its hair standards. I saw many of them today with unbelievably long hair (not tie-able length, though). My sister alleges that in NYPS, those with curly hair must straighten.

Fish meat is more prone to carrying certain "other types" of toxins. Majority of fish are still caught from the sea/water bodies (not fish farms), which means the various, erm, industrial discharges into water bodies may enter the bodies of fishes (depending on relative locations of fishing and factories, of course). So you can be pretty sure they weren't reared on traditional agricultural steroids to boost flavour of meet or health of fish.

Having a teacher-ful weekend... parents brought me out to novena square for lunch, and saw ms. melissa lim shopping in $1.99 shop (where i got my new pencilcase). Then saw edward nathan marketing at cold storage there. Today when i was walking down mt. sinai to school, mr. kamal stopped to give me a lift. Hrrmmm.
Ouch. I tripped over a low hanging chain and fell sprawling on a sandy / slab covered carpark spot. My right knee is grazed. Gah.
