Because most guys have done this before!

Ah, yes...I remember my first ever encounter with the pop-out bidet. I thought that the pipe thingy would spring up and shoot the water upwards, allowing me to appreciate the flow as it struck the ceiling...Instead, the water shot out at a 90-degree angle and left me with the "I couldn't wait any longer" look on my pants. The lesson I learned? Always make sure you remove your pants when dealing with something that pops upwards and squirts.

A-ha! Bet you rushed to read this post, didn't you? You sexy pig fan, you! Anyways, all jokes aside, get your mind out of the gutter because I've always wanted to know...

What the hell are those "NIPPLY THINGS" commonly seen in certain buildings? Are they the "ceiling nipples" I presume they are? One friend mentioned that they were CCTVs but I don't believe so because I don't see a lens anywhere. Smoke detectors? Maybe! But either way, googling "Nipple-shaped ceiling thingies" did not give me a satisfactory answer so I would appreciate if someone could tell me just what those things are!
Update: Someone has informed me that it's for the celcom service. Some broadband stuff or something. Any techies out there care to verify this? :D

The Mood for The Day

You ever had a moment of inspiration or spark hit you? As in, it hit you hard and then you suddenly saw things clearer or felt ready to make a decision, or take on anything? Well, today I had that moment when I was listening to a song by Shinedown. Sometimes it takes weird things to trigger certain things in us, but for me this song helped. These are just excerpts of the song "Second chance" by Shinedown:

Please don't cry one tear for me
I'm not afraid of what I have to say
This is my one and only voice
So listen close, it's only for today
Tell my mother,
tell my father
I've done the best I can
To make them realize this is my life,
I hope they understand
I'm not angry, I'm just saying
Sometimes goodbye is a second chance

Here is my chance
This is my chance

What song lyrics inspire YOU? ;)

PHD Student?!

At first, I just thought that maybe the chaps who wrote the emails were purposely misspelling their words on purpose to catch the recipients' (in the mailing list) attention. But when I really think about it...No, I think these guys are just really sloppy and they are so used to email that they don't bother with spellcheck or grammarcheck anymore. Shame, really.

Dude, I wouldn't go around flaunting that "PHD" tag if I were least, not until I've learnt how to use spellcheck.

Futsal Organizer's English:

I especially love the creative use of the term "beep". And here I was, planning to enter the futsal tournament... I can just imagine it now...

Organizer: Team A, your colour is similar to Team B! I will need you to use the beep so that

the referee can differentiate the team colours.

Me: You want me to use the what?

Organizer: The beep. I need you to use the beep.

Me: (raising left eyebrow and looking puzzled) The BEEP?

Organizer: Yes, yes, hurry now, the referee is about to start the game! Now go ask your
team to use the beep!

Me: (talking to teammates) Well guys, we shouldn't have worn blue today 'cos the

other team is wearing it too. The organizer says we need to use the beep. Understand?

Teammates: (in unison) Okay.

TWEEEET! (The referee blows the whistle for kick-off)

Me: I'm open, I'm open! Beep! Pass the ball here! Beep!

Teammates: Call for the ball! Beep! Watch the left flank! Beep!

Are You Passionate About Your Job???


Well, this guy is.

from A 48-year-old immigrant from Malta regularly hangs out in various New York City bars, but always on the floor, so that he can enjoy his particular passion of being stepped on. "Georgio T." told The New York Times in June that he has delighted in being stepped on since he was a kid. While one playmate "wanted to be the doctor, (another) wanted to be the carpenter ... I would want to be the carpet." Nowadays, he carries a custom-made rug he can affix to his back (and a sign, Step on Carpet) and may lie face-down for several hours if the bar is busy. He is also a regular at "high foot-traffic" fetish parties, where dozens of stompers (especially women in stilettos) can satisfy their own urges while gratifying Georgio. [New York Times, 6-14-09

So remember folks, whatever your job is - you have to be as passionate as Georgio T, if not more!!!
