Seriously, enough of Brad and Angelina

I thought I was done talking about this in my earlier post. I really don't know where to start. Today, while reading the morning paper, I was stupified to find yet another article about Brad, Angelina and Shiloh. Madame Tussauds wax fellas have made a wax statue of the baby as well. I don't think I have ever used the F-word in my blog so far but I think this justifies some swearing. So skip the next few lines if you don't like hearing your inner voice swear. But what the flying horse fucking cock sucking cunt crapping monkey manure is all this zebra shit about!!!! I mean can we give it a rest?? Lebanon is being ass fucked by the Jews and we got nothing better to do than to go to a wax museum and pose in a picture next to these three fools as if to later, try to fool our friends that the Pitts invited you over to 'see the baby'. Fuck that! for a I'm-a-friend-of the-family joke. I swear, this pisses me off so much that which I could video tape blow torching it …

Jakarta.... Its just crazy there.

Just got home from one of Asia's maddest city, Jakarta, Indonesia. After spending 5 days in Jakarta, I don't think I'll ever complain about life in Kuala Lumpur. The saying "there is no place like home" rings so true. With a population of 240 million and 14 million in Jakarta alone, its a wonder why the Island of Java hasn't sank yet. Just hours before I landed, there was a tremor or 'mild' earthquake that shook the city. In fact, just one day before, off the southern coast of Java, there was a quake that started a Tsunami that killed 700 people! My friend Anderson, whom I stayed with, failed to mention any of these events. Indonesia is one of those countries that has a currency that goes into the millions much like the Italian Lira once did. Changing a 1000 Ringgit gave you 2.5 million Rupiah. You could literally roll around in money and imagine it was U.S dollars, just for kicks. It took some getting use to, buying a can of Coke for 5000 Rupiahs and…

Have you ever notice how Chinese people......

1. Have you ever noticed how Chinese people always ask for the receipt, so they can try and 'claim' it as an expense with the company?

2. Have you ever noticed how Chinese people will always try to the get 'the most' out of their money?

3. Have you ever noticed how Chinese people will be the first in line in any queue and always try to cut the queue if there not?

4. Have you ever noticed how Chinese people never take responsibility for their mistakes and will almost always blame someone else?

5. Have you ever noticed how Chinese people will continue to speak their own ching-chong language amongst themselves around other races?

6. Have you ever noticed how Chinese people don't care that they are rude simple because they don't know or worse yet not bother learning as they think its a waste of time?

7. Have you ever noticed how Chinese people send their kids to school as soon as possible so as they don't 'lose out' in society?

8. Have you ever noticed …

Growing Older

This is the last week I will be 30. As of the 15th, I will turn 31. That's 3 decades that I have been wondering around on this planet. Holy shit, it kinda just crept on me didn't it? Where did the last 30 years go? Hang on while I turn down my Culture Club Greatest Hits CD. Over the weekend I played in a 'Veterans' soccer league game. 'Veteran'.. as in, decrepit old man. As in, 'too decrepit' to play in normal soccer league filled by energetic zit faced 18 year olds. As in, kids call me 'Uncle' at the mall. Sometimes when I'm getting dressed to go out, I put on a baggy 'G-Unit' T-shirt, shorts that go past my knees and a bright red baseball cap, and wonder if I'm told old to pull off this look. Some people say if have to ask, then you are! I still play video games, I still have my Star Wars X-Wing toys. I still watch cartoons for gods sake! I think back to when my father was 30, I wonder, did he do the same stuff? Probably not. I…

Conjunctivitis - The Pink Eye Extravaganza

For the past 2 weeks I've had the pleasure of experiencing one of life's oddities. The loving condition known as Conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis, commonly known as pink eye, is an infection of the conjunctiva (the outer-most layer of the eye that covers the sclera). The three most common types of conjunctivitis are: viral, allergic, and bacterial. Each requires different treatments. With the exception of the allergic type, conjunctivitis is typically contagious. In my case I was the winner of the bacterial version. For the past week I've been dropping drops in my eye like the proverbial rain. Only to be told by the eye specialist that over-dropping of drops will make it worse. He tells me this condition effects people in different ways and I must let it run its course. 100 bucks consultation fees down the tube for advise that a dead rabbit can give me. Coincidentally, I contracted this Pink eye from my son who also took a week to heal and now my wife has it as well. Yea! I…

Rooney sees RED and out goes England

What the hell? FIFA, you have lost the plot. SERIOUSLY.. YOU HAVE.

Sat July 1, 4:49 PM ET GELSENKIRCHEN (Reuters) - Mystery surrounded the dismissal of Englandstriker Wayne Rooney in Saturday's quarter-final loss toPortugal with senior FIFA officials unsure why Argentine referee Horacio Elizondo showed him the red card. FIFA officials were surprised by the sending off and said they had not yet been informed of the reason by the referee. The England forward appeared to be pulled back by Carvalho while at the same time Figo wrapped his legs around Rooney who then seemed to tread on his opponent's groin as he tried to disentangle his leg, but with no malicious intent. Carvalho's reaction prompted Portugal winger Cristiano Ronaldo to sprint some 40 meters to the referee, apparently to demand a card against Rooney who pushed him and was sent off. Television pictures appeared to show Ronaldo winking toward the Portugal bench as Rooney made his way off the pitch.An…
