When I'm high and deprived of sleep, I would go make dumb meaningless videos like this one. Hahaha... Few seconds of dumb shit.
p/s:in the video I wrote the list of software wrongly. They are supposed to be:
Audacity, MediaCoder, MonkeyJam, Paint, Psycle and Wax.
That is the title of the report by E. Lopez-Garcia, R.M. van Dam, T.Y. Li, F. Rodriguez-Artalejo, and F.B. Hu in the 17 June 2008 issue of Annals of Internal Medicine. (haha, yes my ignorant mind is laughing too... annals... hHHAHHAHAH!!! you just GOT to put that S after the 'annal')
How much coffee do I consume everyday?
Minimum 5 cups, usually up to 10 cups. My main source of water is from that beverage, you get my point already right? I drink a shit load of coffee.
What does the study implicated?
The study shows that drinking large amounts of coffee does not increase a person's risk for dying sooner than expected and may actually be protective.
Hahahhaa!!! Screw you guys... Everyone has been saying that I'm going to die faster because of my coffee habits. And yes, I have read some articles/journals that support so, but this, this is just pretty damn cool. Read the summary of the study here. You would need to pay to read the full report, but unless you are a scientist doing a research, I don't think that would be any useful to you.
So yeah...! Drink more coffee!!!!

Haha, ok ok. This might not even be new to some of you guys, but I'm sure that this would be very interesting to know.
"Fucking" is a name of a small town in Austria!!! Holy shit! Hahahhaha! I was browsing through webnews.de and saw a link with the word "fucking östereich" on it. Usually, if you're browsing the internet and click a link with a the word "fucking" on it, it would usually lead you to some random, pop-up flooding pornographic website. But hahaha! Not this time!!! It was a youtube video.(No... I did NOT have the intention to watch European porn)
Holy fuck!Hahaha... There's actuallya a town called "Fucking". I can't stop laughing. We should have something like that in our country as well. Like a kampung named "Kampung Wet Kan" or a street named "Jalan Loh Ng Dik" or a housing area by the name "Kawasan Perumahan Ass Hool". That would certainly attract tourists.
Oh yea. To my friends who are going to fly to Germany next year, let's put that place in our "to-go" destinies. It's in freaking Austria! Wir koennen Deutsch dort sprechen. Eine wichtige gute Bildungsdestination oder? hehehe...
And here's a picture I got from wikipedia:
The link that I clicked ;)
Fucking on Wikipedia
Haha... OK ok... I might not be the best person to consult with about moral principle but I would still like to think that I do have moral principles. And just now I received this rather interesting e-mail from my uncle. The "forward-forward-forward" type of e-mails. Usually, I would just hit delete with a feeling of slight annoyance. Hahaha... Pak Lang, if you're reading this, no offense eh? Anyways, here is the e-mail.. Read it! It's worth the read. I guess... What ever la..
A group of children were playing near two railway tracks, one still in use while the other disused. Only one child played on the disused track, the rest on the operational track. The train is coming, and you are just beside the track interchange. You can make the train change its course to the disused track and save most of the kids. However, that would also mean the lone child playing by the disused track would be sacrificed. Or would you rather let the train go its way? Let's take a pause to think what kind of decision we could make................
Most people might choose to divert the course of the train, and sacrifice only one child. You might think the same way, I guess. Exactly, to savemost of the children at the expense of only one child was rational decision
most people would make, morally and emotionally. But, have you ever thought that the child choosing to play on the disused track had in fact made the right decision to play at a safe place?
Nevertheless, he had to be sacrificed because of his ignorant friends who chose to play where the danger was. This kind of dilemma happens around us everyday. In the office, community, in politics and especially in a democratic society, the minority is often sacrificed for the interest of the majority, no matter how foolish or ignorant the majority are, and how farsighted and knowledgeable the minority are. The child who chose not to play with the rest on the operational track was sidelined. And in the case he was sacrificed, no one would shed a tear for him.
The great critic Leo Velski Julian who told the story said he would not try to change the course of the train because he believed that the kids playing on the operational track should have known very well that track was still in use, and that they should have run away if they heard the train's sirens. If the train was diverted, that lone child would definitely die because he never thought the train could come over to that track!
Moreover, that track was not in use probably because it was not safe. If the train was diverted to the track, we could put the lives of all passengers on board at stake! And in your attempt to save a few kids by sacrificing one child, you might end up sacrificing hundreds of people to save these few kids.
While we are all aware that life is full of tough decisions that need to be made, we may not realize that hasty decisions may not always be the right one.
"Remember that what's right isn't always popular... and what's popular isn't always right." Everybody makes mistakes; that's why they put erasers on pencils.
