Barbarella and her weather forecast

Barbarella and her weather forecast

Before MDA or Mediacorp decides to pull the video off Youtube, watch it. For people who cannot view YouTube videos, here is the line: “Oh, my arm says that the rain won’t come today. … But my boyfriend will come tonight. … … Twice! (bimbo pose)” SEXEHH!

The modern day Forrest Grump

The modern day Forrest Grump

OK, the title is a bit overrated. Anyway, there is this guy in Europe who completed a marathon per day for the past one year, beating the previous record of 52 consecutive marathon runs. He averages four hours per session, and 2hrs 56 minutes for his shortest. Stefaan Engels, dubbed “Marathon Man”, began his challenge in Belgium a year ago and has since run a marathon every day across seven countries. He crossed the finish line in the Spanish city…

Of: Suicide Note

Of: Suicide Note

Bell Zeller, a fantastic programmer, committed suicide early last month. Being someone who does not have friends committing suicide (as if I want them to), it is kind of detached for me to feel sad.

Facebook mining

Facebook mining

Apparently, there are scammers/data miners who are exploiting features, or lack of it, on Facebook. For many years, as far back as when Facebook first started, countless of users have been asking or requesting for a similar feature to Friendster’s “Who viewed my profile”. Steadfastly, Facebook held their ground and refuse to allow such a feature to be implemented. Malicious programmers are now increasingly exploiting this stance to mine user data (so I have assumed) from unwitting Facebook users, who…

In response to this ridiculous law: Breaking wind

In response to this ridiculous law: Breaking wind

Apparently breaking wind is about to be made illegal in Malawi. It appears to raise a stink in the local judiciary as well. Justice Minister George Chaponda says the new bill would criminalise flatulence to promote “public decency”. “Just go to the toilet when you feel like farting,” he told local radio. However, he was directly contradicted by Solicitor General Anthony Kamanga, who says the reference to “fouling the air” means pollution. Read more over here. Laughable. Now, this reminds…
