Dont Cry but the Walkman has Died.

The Walkman, the Sony cassette device that forever changed music listening before becoming outdated by digital MP3 players and iPods, has died. It was 31 years old. Sony announced Monday that it has ceased production of the classic, cassette tape Walkman in Japan, effectively sounding the death knell of the once iconic, now obsolete device.

The Walkman is survived by the Discman (still clinging to life) and ironic music listeners who think using a Walkman in this day-and-age is charmingly out-of-touch.

Are You In The Arena?

"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly."

-- Theodore Roosevelt

Never Argue with a Woman who Reads

One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.  Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out.  She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book.

Along comes a Game Warden in his boat.  He pulls up alongside the woman and says, 'Good morning, Ma'am..  What are you doing?'

'Reading a book,' she replies, (thinking, 'Isn't that obvious?')

'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her.

'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing.  I'm reading'

'Yes, but you have all the equipment.  For all I know you could start at any moment..  I'll have to take you in and write you up.'

'For reading a book,' she replies.

'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her again..

'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing.  I'm reading'

'Yes, but you have all the equipment.  For all I know you could start at any moment.  I'll have to take you in and write you up.'

'If you do that, I'll have to charge you with Sexual assault,' says the woman.

'But I haven't even touched you,' says the game warden.

'That's true, but you have all the equipment..  For all I know you could start at any moment.'

'Have a nice day ma'am,' and he left.

MORAL:  Never argue with a woman who reads.  It's likely she can also think.

Sugar Containers...

And here I was thinking Milo was healthier than Coke!

Malaysia Bus Accident on 10.10.10 - A Sea of Blood

A fiend of mine who happened to pass this area said he saw a sea of blood.

The bus accident that happened on October 10, 2010 was another
reminder of how Malaysian bus operators put profit ahead of lives.
Those cheap bus operators wouldnt blink an eye if this scene were to
repeat themselves. Because they also know the Road Transport
department is a limp agency, incapable of punishing the culprits
behind this sad tragedy.

If you're ever in Malaysia and if you value your lives, pay the extra
money and travel on the luxury coaches. Not because of the luxury, but
because these coaches are safe and have yet to suffer such an
accident. While they might cost double or triple the fare of the
cheaper buses, think of the live of your loved ones and yourself. If
their lives are dispensable, then by all means, go for these cheap

These cheap bus operators know that they will always get customers
because of their cheap price, so these types of accidents wont change
their attitude nor behaviour. To them, you're just RM25!
