This is why you should teach your kids about sex

*Did you hear about the parents who found out that their 10-year old was visiting S&M websites?

Mum: Well, what are we gonna do?
Dad: Well, we can't spank him.

That parenting style is as fail as this.

*Allegedly joke told by Barack Obama at a press conference.

What the ...?

It's Monday and I need some giggles.

Don't you?

Oh, Freddy. I miss you. There is none currently who can match your talent or style. R.I.P, darling. *cries*

I do NOT have ADD!

(stolen from here)

My fondness for opening multiple tabs in my Firefox browser has NOTHING to do with ADD (attention deficit disorder), thank you very much. Nor my tendency to be working on 4-5 items simultaneously. It's not because of my ferret-like attention span that .... oohh! Sparklies!

... made me jump from subject to subject.

It's just that I have too much brain.


That's right. The little grey cells (to quote Msr. Hercule Poirot) of my left superior parietal cortex (the part of the brain that is roughly three finger span behind my left eye) are just too plentiful.

Trust me. Scientists said so.

However, this does not mean that I am any cleverer (hah!). In fact, it actually means that "a greater volume of grey matter may indicate a less mature brain, perhaps reflecting a mild developmental malfunction".


How can this be fixed?

Apparently, the team who wrote the paper is working on stimulating the mega-brain area by "placing electrodes on the head to deliver an unnoticeable electrical current to the immediate area".

Unnoticeable electrical current, yeah right. Now pull the other leg.

Time for your electroconvulsive therapy, m'dear.

Hell is other people

Existential angst, Star Wars style. In French, no less.

Happy 34th birthday, Star Wars!

How do you measure love?

Apparently it is possible to estimate the value of Love using basic algebra of need, perhaps some calculus, maybe a bit of the geometry of innocence, and a lot of wishful thinking.

You start with:

        (Love - 0) / No limit

And other mathematical gobbledygook that I don't understand (since I was this close to flunking Additional Mathematics) ...

Which leads to the conclusion:

1. Love is infinite if X is finite.
2. Love is indefinite if X is zero.
3. Love is infinitely negative if X is negative.
4. Love is imaginary if X is imaginary.

Another midweek sh*ts and giggles.

You've already left Monday ... but Friday is still a day away.

Have some chuckles.

Isn't good that we have super strict gun laws in Malaysia?

Duct tape. Good for all emergencies. And I mean all.

Why is it Asian movie ghosts have to be female with long hair? What about those with boy cuts? Or men! Aren't there any male ghosts?  *rants some more*

Ow! My head! *clutches refrigerator*

If you know and see what you want, go and get it.

What Child Protective Services? The kid is having fun!

Getting hammered. The Charlie Sheen solution to all problems. Learn from the winner, little girl.

I am not a cat fan. But I do like cat macros.

Have a great week ahead!

Midweek sh*t and giggles

For the darling Seorang Blogger who lives in a place with lousy Internet connectivity ...

I give you pictures!

Enjoy, darling!

My namesake!

Or is it the other way round?

Don't care. Here's the cutest video of a sloth trying to cross the road in Costa Rica. I gotta say; the good Samaritan sure have the most fantastic legs.

Isn't the sloth adorable?

How do you mend a broken heart?

Chocolates? Alcohol? Beating up some unsuspecting stranger/not-stranger (literally or figuratively)?

Phhbbbttt ... so old school.

If you want to go for the most cutting edge measure, you gotta go the stem cell way.

How do you mend a broken heart? (Full version) from British Heart Foundation on Vimeo.

On the other hand, setting the property belonging to the person who broke your heart on fire may also help. However, make sure that you either have a good lawyer on your side or that you can't be caught.


Who says scientists aren't arty?

Don't believe me? Watch this.

Happy Birthday, Carl Linnaeus!

Carolus Linnaeus made pigeon-holing and characterising animals and plants to an elevated science. In honour of his 300th birthday, a group of scientists in Sweden decided to throw a party to celebrate it. It took 3 years to organise (any wedding planner given this kind of time-line would run screaming into the night).

Have a look at the party here. It is super awesome.

Sweet dreams are made of these ...

Should I be worried that I seem to be recycling my dreams? Every morning I wake up to some dream that I have had before. Maybe some minor details were changed (like new characters, etc) but the essential storyline and plot are the same.


Does this mean that my imagination has come to a stand still?

Way to destroy one's childhood memories ... :'(

How could GQ desecrate Voltron thusly???!

Not to mention that such paper dolls used to be a particular obsession of mine. They were cheap and came in amazing variety from just RM 0.20 to RM 0.50 per set at your local friendly stationery shop. Since the money to get toys (like Barbie dolls) were routed to feed my reading obsession, these paper dolls were my primary toy.

Darn you, Lady Gaga!

*shakes fist*

Stuff that makes you apoplectic

Apoplexy is a very popular word in historical romances (one of the genres that I devour like a chocoholic inhales Godiva). Some guardian/father/members of nobility/etc will be in an apoplectic fit over the harum scarum adventures of our intrepid hero/heroine. Apoplexy can also mean stroke, which is one of the major causes of death and disability the world over.

Hence, it behooves us to know what can cause stroke and make sure we reduce our risk factor as much as possible. The usual ones are quit smoking, maintain a healthy weight, etc etc, but do you know what are the most common activities that leads to an apoplectic fit?

Drinking coffee. Sex. Being angry.

Straining while on the porcelaine throne (aka straining to shit). Blowing your nose. Shock.

The poor snow leopard could have had a stroke!

Don't believe me? Read it here.

This means that if you want to live longer, don't have sex, eat lots of fibre and keep your mucus to yourself.

As if I'm not paranoid enough in rivers ...

... now I hear that crocodiles can traverse oceans. Granted that this was seven million years ago, but since crocodile design hasn't really changed since then, this is pretty scary.

Oh yeah. Crocs are salt tolerant and can survive six months without food. So by the time they reach the beach where you are frolicking innocently, they are starving and you look like a delicious meal.

Humans are doomed.

(Image ganked from here)
Not these crocs, okay? Only scary near escalators.

OMG! This is severely cool!

The nerd in me is amazed by the amount of work that had gone into this game. If you are interested in how addictive substance of abuse act on the brain or just want to torment some lab mice, go here!
