Holy shit! I pass. Again.

Now this is becoming an annoying tradition. Last semester it was a real relief when I found out that I passed all my exams. This semester, well I'm kinda pissed off. Stupid exam results don't reflect anything. The subject I spent the least amount of time on got the highest score. The subject I spent most of my time studying got a near fail. What the hell?
Well, at least I can actually go and tear all my notes to shreds now that I'm sure I don't have to resit any exams. So long sucky notes!

What's a fundie?

Definitions for fundamentalist (source: Google):

  • a supporter of fundamentalism
  • of or relating to or tending toward fundamentalism
  • In comparative religion, fundamentalism refers to anti-modernist movements in various religions.

After visiting this site, fundamentalism is starting to make sense to me. To be a fundamentalist, first you have to be mental. In fact being mental is the first requirement to be a fundaMENTAList. Don't believe me? Read all these quotes from fundies, these people really should be committed to a mental hospital.

"[Explaining how "rape" is a fictional crime created by the minions of Political Correctness]

Not a subject I would normally associate with political correctness but after the extraordinary new policy statement from the PC Brigade's feminist-in-chief Ms Harriet Harman, I felt it was worthy of a page in itself!

According to Ms Harman, The Solicitor General (has a certain ring about that title - perhaps it's too much like Witchfinder General) one in twenty women has been raped. Not only that, apparently too many men are getting away with it!

Like all members of the PC Brigade, Ms Harman's common sense was surgically removed when she joined. If that figure was true, we would be constantly hearing of women raped locally and it would be the major news item on TV each day. When one dissects her dodgy statistics, it turns out that most of the 7,000 women involved in a survey didn't say they had been raped at all. Most said 'they had sexual intercourse against their will' which is a totally different thing. Most men if asked would probably say that they 'go shopping against their will' or 'visit the Mother-in-law against their will' - when they would rather perhaps watch the match on TV. All of these things are just emotional blackmail or 'give and take' within a relationship."

6000 year old Earth or what happens when fantatics go scientific

Who needs to go visit joke websites when you can read entertaining "scientific" truths as this?

We need to know that all things that called science, is not science. Sometimes it's simply men’s opinions. We need to learn that all true science is in agreement with the Bible. The Bible is not a science book, but because the Bible contains all truth, all true science will be in agreement with the Bible.

We need to know that the Bible is our guide in this life. In all things, we need to follow the Bible. If there is any question, the Bible has the answer; even in the area of Science. God has not left out what he wants us to believe concerning the creation of this world. He has given us everything we need for time and eternity; therefore, we know he has also given us all the facts we need about the creation of this world.

Yes, the website offer simple and easy proof that the Earth is only 6000 years old. Forget all those carbon dating, star gazing craps real scientists use to date anything. Just get out your bible and in 5 (yes, FIVE) steps you can determine the age of the Earth.

1. Genesis 5. These genealogies cover 10 generations, from Adam to Noah, and reveals that Noah died when the earth was 2006 years old. Click here to view a table created from Genesis 5.

2. Gen. 11:10-32. These genealogies cover 9 generations, from Shem (the son of Noah) to the death of Terah (Abraham’s dad). This genealogy will give you the age of the earth at the death of Terah, who is the father of Abraham, as 2081. It is very interesting to note that Terah died the very year Abraham received the promise of God in Genesis 12:1-4. It is very true that we will not receive any of the promises of God until we obey the conditions of those promises. God had told Abraham to depart from: (1) his country, (2) his kindred, and (3) his father’s house. Abraham did not receive any of the promises of God until he obeyed completely. We, like Abraham, will receive none of the promises of God until we obey completely. Click here to view a table created from Genesis 11:10-32.

It is interesting to note that Abraham was born the same year Noah died, when the world was 2006 years old. According to Genesis 12:4, Abraham was 75 years old when he received the promises of God. Add 2006 to 75 and we discover the world was 2081 years old when the promise was given to Abraham concerning the coming Saviour and the blessings of God upon the nation of Israel.

3. Galatians 3:16,17 declares, "Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect." Abraham received the promise when the world was 2081 years old. Now, add the 430 years spoken of in Galatians 3:16,17 to 2081, and we discover the world was 2511 years old when the law (the Ten Commandments) was given.

Also read Exodus 12:40,41. "Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. 41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt."

The sojourning of the children of Israel (in Canaan: during the lifetime of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: in Egypt (see Exodus 6:16-20) during the life of Levi, Kohath, Amram, and Moses.

4. I Kings 6:1. This verse will bring us up to the fourth year of Solomon's reign.

I Kings 6:1 states, "And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD."

Now we can add another 480 years to 2511 and we get find it is 2991 years from creation to the fourth year of Solomon’s reign.

5. Using any secular history, look up the date when Solomon reigned. This will be in the area of 1015-975 b. c. If you like, you can go through the books of I and II Kings and prove that Israel went into bondage to the Assyrians in 722 B. C. and Judah went into bondage to Babylon in 606 B. C.

Because we know from secular history that Solomon reigned about 1,000 years before Christ, we can add 1,000 years to 2,991 (the age of the earth when Solomon began to reign) and you get 3991 (the approximate age of the earth when Christ was born.)

I think everybody knows it is approximately 2000 years the time of Christ until now. So add 2000 years to 3991 and you get 5991. That is pretty close to 6,000 years.

It is very clear, is it not, that the Bible proves the age of the universe to be approximately 6,000 years old.

For a graphical representative of the above explanation click here.

I just realised that article even go as far as to claim that the universe is approximately 6000 years old. Well, at least the guy who wrote this is consistent with the bible. So what happened is God created the universe then Earth exactly 6000 years ago.

If there is a bigger pile of crap I would really want to know. Ok, bad rhetorical question, of course there are bigger piles of crap most of which come from some dude named Bush; however, let's not get political now. While reading the article I was wondering if the author was doing this:

Let's just disregard all those fossilised dinosaur bones that clearly indicated that the Earth is at least a few hundred thousands years old and assume that the Earth is 6000 years old. There is no way anyone can claim that the universe is the same age as the Earth. Take a look at this picture:

This picture is known as the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. Every white dots on that picture is a galaxy and all those spirals are galaxies that are closed to Earth. By closed I mean they're only a few billion light years away. In other words, that picture is the picture of how they look a few billion years ago. So even if we disregard the real age of the Earth and assume that it's 6000 years old, the age of the universe should not be the same as the age of the Earth.

Then again, it's only typical of religious fanatics to ignore scientific facts, is it not? I don't really mind religions as long as they don't incite violence and blatantly lie. At least have the decency of integrating real science into religion for the new century to make yourself look less like an idiot. Take Islam for example, they claim that Allah is responsible for the Big Bang, now that's integrating science into mainstream religion.

Footnote: for you information, the real age of the Earth is approximately 4.5 billion years, the age of the universe is, depending on what methods you use to determine, approximately 12.8 Gyr (giga years?)

stupid frakking moron!

Great! A moron made my day. Anyone would think that by staying at home and not going out would keep me away from morons. And that is dead wrong. This might not be news to anyone but there are MORONS on the net. I just met one today, one computer reboot ago.

Who would be so stupid as to put their entire blog archive on one single page? Who would be so stupid as to put their entire blog archive full of video clips from Youtube on one single page? Who would be so stupid as to put an entire blog archive full of automatically loading video clips on one single page?

The answer to all 3 questions is: a stupid frakking moron.

Came across the moron by the stupid "next blog" button. My laptop froze solid because of that stupid blog and I was reading some good stuff when it froze too. Stupid frakking moron!

useless, FUN, time-wasting tid bits (children, please keep out!)

I recently found out that an old friend of mine is married. My first thought when I heard that is 'wow', my second thought is 'what the heck, you're too young to be married!'. It's quite disturbing for me to imagine anyone who is as old as me, or in this case as young as me, would want to get married and have children. Maybe it's just me but I think the best time to be married is after 25. Why 25? I don't know, not too old to have children but old enough to have enjoyed single life I guess.

What's more disturbing is that I know the 2 of them would get straight down to the business of making children since they're hardcore Christians. No siree, we don't want anything unnatural about sex, not those plastic thingies.

If you're wondering what the heck the title of this post is about, well I'm a responsible person most of the time so I like to give out warnings when I feel like it. This post is definitely MA rated and the stuff above is nothing compared to the stuff I'm gonna put below here. There's gonna be a song list full of songs (duh! what else can a song-list list?) about the same topic, there's gonna be 2 minute of snogging video and last of all there's gonna be a huge comic page of R rated nature. There, that's warning enough, that's responsible enough of me.

Ok, let's get down to the list. A few months ago I found a strangely funny list on Wikipedia. It's a list of songs about masturbation. 'Strange? Why strange?' you may ask. Well, strange because someone would write much less sing about such topic and stranger still, someone would compile a list of those songs. Now these songs can have pretty straight forward titles such as "I touch myself", "Touch of my hand" or "ode to masturbation" or highly cryptic titles such as "communist daughter" or "weenie in a bottle".
Please don't ask me how I come across this list. I might have been researching STDs and a link piqued my curiosity. One thing I'm sure, I wasn't looking for them in the first place.
Now that I've finished defending my questionable character, here's the link to the list. I'm sure you'll have a laugh at some of those title.

Alright, next on the list, 2 minute of snogging. I'm sure you've seen people kiss before. I see it all the time on the train. However, I've never seen 2 girls do it on a train. Why I wonder.

Again, I innocently came across this. What do you think? I go searching for lesbian kissing videos? Purlease give me a break! I'm not the 3vil p3v3rt3d g3nius thank you very much. This video popped up on one of those comics websites I have links for.

I did save the best bits for last. Have you ever wonder what phrase atheists use for instead of "oh God" when they're doing it? This comics with very explicit contents tried to answer that. Here's the original site: Deist on top (by Jeff Swenson)

Ok, back to the part about my friend got married. After I read the comic strips, every time I think about my friend I got weirded out. It's one thing reading about other people having sex, it's another thing entirely when you imagine your friend doing it with her husband.

in which I stumbled upon an interesting book and found out that I'm heading for hell

Of course there is no way to verify all the contents of this book. After all, only Jesus has ever come back from the dead and he couldn't have gone to hell could he?

I stumbled upon this title while looking for new fantasy titles on amazon. That should tell you something about the validity of this. It isn't exactly endorsed by the Vatican or anything so please don't take it seriously.

So what exactly is in this book? I can't tell you really since I haven't read it. Trust me, I want to read this book but my local library doesn't offer much choices when it comes to anything that's nonfiction and is gonna remotely undermine any popular religions, Muslim included. Illegal ebook channels are worse, they don't have anything that has anything to do with religion except some old essays from the 19th century. However, from what I can scrape off half-hearted reviews, this book is a collection of "facts" about hell from different religions.

So what's going down in hell? Nothing much really, just some presents for the bad kids. Some dismemberments, some snake pits (I'm just wondering, since they're inventing these up, couldn't they put a bit more imagination into it and make it dragon pits or dinosaur pits?), some huge warm boiling bathtub cauldron full of relaxing oil. No biggie.

And the presents are pretty specific to the type of bad kids too. For example, all the 7 deadly sins have customised punishments (source: Wikipedia).

Sin Punishment in Hell
Pride Broken on the Wheel.
Envy Placed in freezing water.
Wrath Dismembered Alive.
Sloth Thrown in Snake Pits.
Greed Put in pots of boiling oil.
Gluttony Forced to eat rats, toads, and snakes.
Lust Smothered in Fire and Brimstone.

Some of these punishments, may I say, are unjust. Take Gluttony for example, why would you want to punish someone who like to eat with more food? Don't you know that toads, rats and snakes are delicacies in some other cultures? Foreign cultures' delicacies all you can eat for free in hell? That is no punishment, the guy would be enjoying it. The just punishment, may I suggest, should be starving for all eternity. And what's with the punishment for wrath? Anyone who has reached hell, assuming there is such a place, is dead already. How can you dismember anyone alive when they're dead? Besides, when people are dead and their soul traveled to this supposedly parallel plane, they wouldn't have a body to be dismembered alive or dead. Stop contradicting and confusing yourself and while you're at it, make up you mind about hell too!

Worried about life after dead? Worried that you're heading for hell? Don't be because there is a simple pain-free test to determine your destination after life that you can take here. It's pain-free enough else I wouldn't be here to tell you about it would I? Seriously, there's been only 8 questions and with only that you can know if you're heading towards the light or eternal damnation. (If you ask me, that's too little information to damn anyone to anything.) Anyhow, I got through the questions easily enough until I reached this:

I was thinking 'holy shit, what's the first commandment again? it has something about me being banned from doing 10 somethings but I can remember what the heck they are' and then I saw that life-saving link. Now, I couldn't really determine if I've broken the rule about not talking about fight club, oops, I mean the rule about not worshiping any other god. Really, I didn't go and worship some other god. I just stop worshiping any god at all so technically I didn't break the first commandment right? Anyhow, I answered yes.

I bet you're all wanting to see my score so here it is:

Oh man, these guys aren't judgmental at all! So I just have to judge myself huh? Being the comedian that I am I clicked on innocent.

Was I saying something about not being judgmental? Remind me later about never count my chickens before they hatch! By the time I saw this I was thinking 'you judgmental bastard, can't you just come out and tell me I'll go to hell instead of asking me politely to click on the answer?'. Still being the comedian I clicked on heaven and got this:

These guys, apart from being judgmental, are actually funny! I was cracking myself up reading this. Does it concern me that I'm heading for a fictional plane of existence? Of course no.

By this time, I was reeealy scared out of my wits with the prospect of heading for hell, lots of sarcasm intended. So I wondered what would have been if I had clicked on 'guilty' instead of 'innocent' so many steps away? So I used the magic of the back button and find out this:

What?! No praise for choosing the correct answer? How about I answer correctly 2 times in a row?

Oh man, screw this, these people have no appreciation for my honesty. I've been answering all their ridiculous questions honestly and I still go to hell? I'm out of here.

The best frackkin' show ever!

No I am not one of those sci-fi freaks. I don't normally watch sci-fi at all and I hate any scifi show and that includes Stargate, star trek and even star wars. So yeah, I hate any show that has 'star' in it especially 'dancing with the stars'. However, Battlestar Galactica is an extraordinary exception. What attracts me is not the sci-fi elements of the show, it's the drama and the show's outlook on some current issues like religious fanaticisms and the Iraq war.

Don't believe me? (It's not that surprising anyway coz judging from my dismal marks in persuasive writing in high school, my chances of making it big as a politician or even a salesperson is practically 0). Then let someone else change your mind about BSG.

OK, OK, already: Battlestar Galactica is a great frakkin' show.

Sorry, got carried away there. Me, a newbie, using Battlestar lingo. Won't happen again. No real fan would stand for it.

Because, like any good genre show worth its salt, the updated tale of war between humans and Cylons inspires intense loyalty among its fans. Which is a polite way of saying that sci-fi freaks are nastily protective of their show.

And in this case, they deserve to be.

Battlestar Galactica, much to my delight, turns out to be less a traditional sci-fi TV show and very much more a character-driven drama, thick with political allegory, moral ambiguity and only the occasional spaceship battle. It transcends genre in much the same way Buffy the Vampire Slayer did. Where that show used metaphor to shine a light on the horrors of high school, Battlestar goes for bigger game, using conventional sci-fi to examine, among other things, the war in Iraq, its costs and consequences.

It's a show that deserves, even demands, to be seen by anyone who loves good television. And I was late to the party - a glaring omission.

"I'm on board," said Peter Lehman, the director of the Center for Film and Media Research at Arizona State University. "I just think on a lot of different levels it's a very thoughtful and engaging series. . . . I like Battlestar Galactica better than Star Wars. I think it's better than Star Wars."

Heresy? No way.

As for my late start, there are excuses (someone else wanted to write about the show when it debuted, only so many hours in the day, failed attempt at having a life outside of watching TV nonstop), but they don't really matter. What does matter is that after a Battlestar marathon and a chat with one of the executive producers, I'm on board. And if you're not, you should be. The only question I had after hours of episodes was a simple one: Exactly who am I supposed to be rooting for here?

"Who told you you needed to be told who to root for?" asked David Eick, a Phoenix native and one of the show's executive producers. "That's just a convention you've grown accustomed to. That's a convention of the times we're in. That's never necessarily been the case in drama or good storytelling."

And Battlestar is that.

To recap the entire story would take far too long - it's complicated, but not so much so that you should let it prevent you from diving in - but here's the short version: Cylons were created by humans and eventually rose up against them. They evolved over time, so that they now look like people, some of them, and not just chrome-plated kitchen utensils.

Naturally, they want to wipe out the creatures who created them, and they did a pretty good job of it, managing to kill all but a few more than 50,000 humans in a surprise attack. Those survivors, led by Adm. William Adama (Edward James Olmos) and Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell), a former secretary of education elevated to the presidency after the attack, took to a battleship named Galactica and headed off for a planet that may be just a myth: Earth.

Of course, the Cylons are in hot pursuit, their single-minded purpose driven by - metaphor alert - religious fanaticism.

As the second season ended, humans thought they'd found safe haven on New Caprica, but the Cylons followed them. Rather than kill everyone, they decided to allow the humans to live under occupation (the humans have since fled).

Any parallels you want to draw to the U.S. invasion of Iraq, feel free. And note: the Cylons, not the humans, are the ones doing the occupying.

"Clearly we knew we were going to do a story that was going to evoke what was going on on CNN," Eick said. "Once those seeds were planted, it was a very natural thing."

No choices are easy. The humans strained under the yoke of the increasingly brutal Cylons and resorted to savage tactics, including, at the beginning of the third season, the use of suicide bombings. How human is that?

When Col. Saul Tigh (Michael Hogan), the drunken former second-in-command on Galactica and a leader of the insurgency on New Caprica, found out that his wife, Ellen (Kate Vernon), betrayed his comrades in an effort to save him, he killed her. How far are we willing to go in service to a cause, noble or otherwise?

Those kinds of questions lie at the heart of Battlestar. Other hot-button issues have included genocide and stem-cell research (or at least a reasonable stand-in). This is heady stuff for a television show to tackle, much less a genre show, yet it's the smartest Iraq portrayal out there, in any media. In this case, the genre format is a blessing; a straight-on take - a lightly disguised, traditional fictional account of the war, say - would be too tough to stomach, particularly with both sides being so morally slippery. The sci-fi trappings allow the show to take aim at difficult targets in a more palatable way. Which isn't to say the violence - and more importantly, the choices about when and how to use it - is anything less than teeth-kicking in its intensity.

When plotting out the new version of the show, Eick said, the producers decided, "If we're going to do this, let's try to make it feel real. Once you say it's a society that's been devastated by a holocaust, it leaves you very little wiggle room to say, 'Hey, let's do the casino planet,' which is what they do in the original Battlestar."

Oh yeah, that. The 1978 version was a campy affair - Lorne Green in space, no less. The current edition retains some basic plot elements from the original, but it's obviously a much darker show.

The Sci-Fi Channel occasionally suggests a somewhat lighter touch, Eick said, but none of the attempts seems to work out that way. The episodes in which they try to lighten up become their most depraved. He pointed to an episode in the first season that was going to be a laugh riot, ha-ha, but by the time Olmos stepped behind the camera to direct, things had taken a different turn. The episode included Ellen Tigh "swinging from the rafters with her legs wrapped around Tigh's neck, thrusting her pelvis in his face.

"It's just not in our destiny to do the light or the morally deliberate episode," Eick said.

Sounds like. And that's a good thing.

After escaping the Cylon occupation on New Caprica, the humans are once again searching for Earth. But now so are the Cylons, who have decided they want to make the planet, if it exists, their home. Gaius Baltar (James Callis), a genius who manages to get himself into some incredibly stupid trouble - he allowed his Cylon lover access to defense secrets that led to the attack that nearly annihilated the human race, oops - is trying to prove his worth to the Cylons so that they won't kill him. (Baltar is perhaps the show's most intriguing character, at least when he's acting crazy. He's somewhat wasted negotiating for his life trapped on a Cylon ship.)

Of course, proving his worth involves putting his fellow humans in jeopardy - old hat to Baltar, and typical of the dilemmas the show's characters face (though most struggle with them a little more than he does).

"We win this particular battle, but there's a cost," Eick said of the consequences of what seems like everything that happens on the show. "We win, but there is an ethical compromise."

That doesn't sound like science fiction. That sounds like real life.

And that's what makes Battlestar Galactica frakkin' great.

I am gonna scream if ...

Another person mentions Tomkat's wedding. People, get over it already! It's not your wedding and it's certainly not one of your friends'. What's with all this obsession about a wedding of 2 people who you don't even know in person and probably will get a divorce when one of them grows too jealous of the other's career success?

Gizmodo posts another post on PS3. They've been posting on PS3 related news for at least 3 days. I feel like I know everything about the new PS3 already.

The next time I press that 'next blog' button I get anything that's not in English, shows porn pics or has disturbing background music. Sometimes all 3 of that happened on the same page and I've been getting Spanish porn blog every single time I clicked on the blasted button today. Do I have a sign saying "show me Spanish porn" sticking somewhere behind me?

zombie day (or why I will not give up coffee)

Another piece of priceless valueless wisdom from the 3vil g3nius:
(funny how price is a subset of value but priceless and valueless are completely different)

(*conditions applied see in store the end of post for details)

My gentle readers can trust me on this, I've found it out the hard way and as another piece of my wisdom goes:

(** more conditions applied see the end of the end of post for details)

I am, as many know, a caffeine addict. I drink just to stay awake. And since I need to stay awake during the school year I drank coffee everyday like clockworks. I'm not the only one in my family who is addicted to such devastating drug as caffeine. I am well aware that something bad to my health in the far future, thank you very much! What exactly is that something, I don't know and I don't wanna know. My health-conscious tooth fairy sister keeps telling me so and somehow I kept tuning out right at the moment she told me the what devastating effects of caffeine are. Oh, this brings me nicely to another piece of my wisdom:

This one only works for stuffs my sister has to say about certain food. I know eating chips is gonna increase my cholesterol level but it's not like I have chips every single day, is it? This piece of wisdom certainly doesn't work for politicians. Otherwise, they'll be running your life for you.

Ok, I know that tempus is frakking fugit-ing. I'll get to the point. Where was I? Oh, coffee is bad for my health. So last week, I can't remember the day now since the caffeine withdrawal episode kinda muddied my memory, in an attempt to rid myself of my addiction and follow, albeit from a distance, my sister's clean, health-obsessed and calorie counting way of life (I have nothing against living clean and a little bit of obsession), I went cold turkey on my daily dose of caffeine.

Let me tell you, it was a bad idea from the start except for the middle part when I slept for 4 hours in the middle of the day. Well actually it started out well until the middle of the morning. That's when the yawning started. Followed right after the yawning was the eyelids-getting-heavy and feeling-like-a-zombie. After that there was the eyelids-couldn't-stay-up. And finally the sleeping in the middle of the day like a baby.

You might say that it wasn't bad at all. I suppose you're right to a point. I have a flair for overstatements after all. However, you have to consider that all this happened when I was reading a fantasy book. I only fall asleep reading some academic books that use 10 complicated sentences with big words written in tiny writings to describe what they could have summed up in a few uncomplicated words. I never fall asleep reading fantasy, with the exception of The Two Towers when Frodo and Sam was crossing the whatever field.

So there, that was the first and the last time I'd go without coffee. And don't even think about telling me what it's gonna do to me when I'm 60.

* with the exceptions of illegal drugs (heroin, cocaine, speeds, etc..), alcohol, cigarettes.
** with exceptions of stuff that can be done with the easy way (ex: factorise complicated equations with a calculator instead of using your brain + pen + paper)

Here's to human-animal hybrids

This is probably quite late for me to comment on the fact that the Australian Senate had voted to lift the ban on therapeutic cloning. It's just a little strange that you don't hear much debates over this particular issue lately. Well, not very strange really since all people talk about lately is the stupid comments about women asking to be raped by wearing revealing outfits. Religious leaders are just full of bright and useful ideas. Here's one humble suggestion to add to the deep well of wisdom of Sheikh Taj Mahal el-din Al-Hilaly: making inflammatory and politically incorrect statements are just like asking to be deported. And for whoever/whatever's sake, learn some English man! You've been living here for more than 10 years you should, at least, know something.

I think I've strayed far enough from what I wanted to discuss. The fact was the bill, giving stem cell research the go ahead, has passed the Senate and is expected to pass The House of Representatives easily. It's a cause for alarm for politicians like Tony Abbott. They believe that nothing good's gonna come out of stem cell research. Well, nothing except human-animal hybrids that is. If you pay attention to those who are against this bill, they'll mention something along the line of hybrids and mongrels at least a few time. What can be so bad about hybrids huh? Maybe we'll make a mermaid or a minotaur one day and then put them in zoo for mythic creatures. Forget possible cures for Alzheimer's or Parkinson's diseases, these politicians just want to focus on possible misuse of embryonic cloning to satisfy some scientists' alleged fetish for mythical creatures.

Seriously, what are those politicians thinking? Scientists are a bunch of useless nerds whose favourite Disney movies are The little mermaid or Beauty and the Beast and who would go to any lengths, including applying for a license for stem cell research, just to make themselves their very own mermaids and beasts assuming that is possible. And it is impossible to do so anyhow.

Oh, I forgot, God created humans from his image, yada yada yada..., we have nothing in common with fruit fly, yada yada yada..., our ancestors aren't monkeys, yada yada yada... Who on earth would let a few scientific facts to cloud a perfectly clear religious issue? Who on earth indeed. God wouldn't approve of human making other humans without using the natural channels. You see, that is his specialty and he doesn't like a little healthy competition. I'm just curious, would these politicians be singing the same tunes if they themselves have Parkinson's or Alzheimer's?

the bored, the procrastinator and the can't-be-bothered

One thing I discovered about myself this year is that I'm an accomplished procrastinator. So accomplished that I even delayed acknowledging that I'm a procrastinator. But then again, that might have something to do with self-denial.

So what have I done this past week when I've finally gotten loose from the shackles of exams? What could I have done? Play games till I'm too tired to move, read books until I can't read anymore and delay writing anything on this blog. That doesn't seem to be a lot but trust me it's very time consuming.

I had planned to update this blog's template this holiday but somehow every time the template codes come up I can't be bothered sifting though all those codes and number to make a new template. So the template has got to wait until I can be bothered again. Probably next month at the soonest.

So between playing games, reading books and occasionally watching some DVDs I haven't the time to do anything else (apart from eating, sleeping and all that normal stuffs). No wonder I'm bored. TV hasn't yielded anything good now that "the glass house" has been axed and both "the Chaser's war on everything" and "thank god you're here" have gone on holiday until next year. Is there any good show that's on? Please don't suggest "my name is Earl" or any sitcoms because the thing I hate most is ads-ridden sitcoms. One moment you're laughing your ass off, the next moment you're watching mind-numbing, neuron-killing ads after ads.

Talking about ads, there was this Optus ad I saw this morning. It was more like those "bright ideas" ads, you know, the type of ads that goes on and on about how good whatever crappy products they want to sell to the gullibles are? To give credits where it's due, the offer from Optus wasn't half bad. Just saddle yourself with Optus for 2 years on home phone and internet and you'll get a laptop for free (lots of small writings follow of course). However, the ad ended with something to the effect of "there has never been an offer like this from anyone else" (which might be true). This particular sentence made it to today's "thought of the day" (I can still frakking think after all those hours playing games and reading novels, thank God the vacuum). How the hell does this persuade people to go for Optus? Because there's never been a better offer from the past? That doesn't mean there won't be a better offer from somewhere else in the future! It means that I should wait for a while more for a better deal, you frakwits!

My current obsession, along with reading and playing games, is Youtube. I know it's not something new but Youtube isn't very accessible when you have a fraking dial-up connection. I still haven't got broadband yet so Youtube is painfully slow. The only consolation is that it's faster than downloading with bittorrent. Surprise, surprise I found BSG season 3 on Youtube. I swear, once I've got broadband I'll live on Youtube and keep the TV just to play games and watch DVDs.
It's been a while since I've posted any Youtube videos, so here it is. If you're a fan of Thank god you're here, this is probably not as funny as the first time you watch it. But it's one heck of a performance. In my opinion, it's the best performance in the whole second series. Enjoy.

P.S. too bad this video is saddled with Hungry Jack's ads. Well, at least you don't have to watch a whole minute of ads.

See, I kept my promise. Sorry about going AWOL for a month. That couldn't be helped and frankly a lot of stuff happened to me during the last month.

First, I had to go through a major operation. Ok, not the heart-transplant-operation type of major but considering I've never been admitted to a hospital before in my life, having all of my wisdom teeth removed under general anaesthetic is major enough.

That took me 1 day to recover and at least 6 days for the swelling to go down. By the time I was normal again, I had to hit the books for the exams, which, thankfully, finished yesterday. I suppose I could have posted something in the time between exams, after all, I didn't study 24/7. Actually, when I come to think about it, I only studied the day before the exam, the rest of the time I was either busy reading some books or busy watching Battlestar Galactica.

Now I really do feel terrible. I should have posted something. You, my not-so-gentle readers, might be thinking "that stupid 3vil g3nius is dumping us for some lame sci-fi space opera". If you're thinking so, you're wrong on 3 counts:

1. I am not stupid, I might not be wise, intelligent and articulated but I am in no way stupid.

2. Battlestar Galactica is the best show on TV and it's a shame channel 10 dumped this show for some stupid shit that's called "celebrity joker poker". I was so glad I bought the DVDs instead of watching it on TV at 11 pm every week. Seriously, where else can you find dialogues like this?

Cavill: Chief Tyrol, I am Brother Cavill. I understand you've asked for religious counseling.

Tyrol: I never really believed in psych therapy. My father was a priest.

Cavill: I see. You thought you'd have an easier time with a priest than a real doctor.

Tyrol: Okay. I pray to gods every night. But I don't think they listen to me.

Cavill: Do you know how useless prayer is? Chanting and singing and mucking about with old half-remembered lines of bad poetry. And you know what it gets you? Exactly nothing.

Tyrol: Are you sure you're a priest?

Cavill: I've been preaching longer than you've been sucking down oxygen. And in that time, I've learned enough to know that the gods don't answer prayers. We're here on our own. That's the way they set things up. We have to find our own answers, our own way out of the wilderness without a nice little sunny path all laid out in front of us in advance.

Tyrol: That's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to find my way.

Cavill: Well, it's not going to get better until you see what the problem is. And the problem is, you're screwed up, heart and mind. You. Not the-not the gods or fate or the universe. You.

Tyrol: Thanks for the pep talk.
3. I am not dumping this blog, I just simply couldn't get any time to use the internet at home. We have a bloody dial-up account! That means 4 hours of snail-speed internet every session. However, the good news is that we're getting broadband, granted that it's only ADSL but that means I can be online for most of the day. Guess what I'm gonna do with my broadband connection? Bertwood is disqualified for this. I think I sort of told him yesterday.

This site is no way finished

Cut me some slacks please! I'm in the middle of my exams here. I'll be finished with all these exams tomorrow. Then I'll tear all my notes to small pieces, burn them and then flush them down the toilet. That's how much I like my exams.
Ok, bad idea. I suppose I should keep all my notes until I'm sure I don't have to sit any sup exams. Dammit, I hate exams so much.
I'll be back the day after tomorrow then. Hang tight I have quite a few issues to rant about.
