Why idiots are so important

Because they make our life so much fun. Because they gave me another topic to blog on.

If looking at the bright side, rather than get irritated, they are just simply the best entertainer in the world. Like this Idian aunty. But today I'll rather focus on the internet hoax. It was last year when we went to visit a KFC near my house. G : KFC? Nooooooooo Wayyyyy ~ Me : Huh? Yes way ~ G : You didn't read the forwarded email about KFC? Me : *OMG, Not another HIGHLY EDUCATED FIRST CLASS DEGREE HOLDER idiot again ! * For you guys that have no idea what it is about, read here. http://www.snopes.com/horrors/food/kfc.asp It's a circulated hoax like, 6-7 years ago. It doesn't need me to do a google research or further verification, my COMMON SENSE already tell me it's a hoax. But not for G, G keep convincing me that the chicken is "genetically manipulated organisms", explaining how they do it and it would kill me if I ate too much. Like G is one of the scientist that develop the technology, coz G knows so much about it. Michael Tierney, KFC's director of public affairs said "Any thinking adult would know it's absolutely absurd." Me : Ever use your intelligent and figured out it's hoax? G : *A few seconds silence* Me : *Ordered my KFC during the silence* G : But... they have pictures! Me : I"ll teach you photoshop tomorrow, you can create your own genetically manipulated organisms using ducks as well. G : Ah~Chi~ Ah~Chor *start debate session* Me : -_-" One of my all time favorite is "The Left-Handed Whopper"
"In 1998 Burger King published a full page advertisement in USA Today announcing the introduction of a new item to their menu: a "Left-Handed Whopper" specially designed for the 32 million left-handed Americans. According to the advertisement, the new whopper included the same ingredients as the original Whopper (lettuce, tomato, hamburger patty, etc.), but all the condiments were rotated 180 degrees for the benefit of their left-handed customers. The following day Burger King issued a follow-up release revealing that although the Left-Handed Whopper was a hoax, thousands of customers had gone into restaurants to request the new sandwich. Simultaneously, according to the press release, "many others requested their own 'right handed' version."

Like it make any difference when you put it into your mouth or goes into your stomach, or the taste is different. No I don't need a Left-Handed Whopper, but I would really appreciate if the college I use to attend have chairs designed for left handers in their lecture hall. Imagine if you are right handed and all the chairs' writing table are installed on the left side, keeping your hand hanging in the air. Though I kinda use to it, but when lazy strikes me I'll just put my left hand on the writing table beside me while copying the forever unfinished notes. Now I would love to have a check book designed for left handers. Another hoax that stirred people's attention lately is the Boilerplate. Yes, people fall for it again, like the previous news about the hoax wasn't heard, and normally idiots choose to believe hoax rather than truth. I like this boilerplate a lot, especially the photoshoped pictures, even historian fall for the hoax, see how detailed the hoax was structured.

Cute mechanical man huh ? The almost perfect photoshoped picture. For more fun, go google "hoax site". Then during yam cha session, tell your buddies about it, you'll be amazed their IQ will allow them to believe the hoax... hehe...

What makes me 2KG fatter in 4 and half hours

Thought i would get some hugs from CY yesterday, or I should give her some :) But she was sick, so she don't want me to hug her. Anyway CY if you are reading, I'm having running nose now, so it makes no difference whether I hug you or not, i still got infected :P

...hehe... just kidding, I think because I ate too much sambal during the birthday dinner starts from 7.30pm till 12am. That's really crazy. After I came back, I measure my weight and I'm now 2KG heavier than yesterday! Can you imagine that? 2KG of chicken, beef, lamb, fish, vege, corn, fish balls, FF's special own made soup, ice-cream, bee-hun, ham, sambal, a huge cup of watermelon, and.... damn.... so sleepy after the super heavy meal, I think I had almost every food they had, plus lots of BUTTER! Yes, BUTTER!

We were celebrating L's birthday at Restaurant Telefon at Kuchai Lama. They are famous for the "eat all you can" steamboat and fried pan. My first time there, Everything is so oily but can't help it. No picture coz TT took my digicam.

They have quite a variety food, such as meat, fish, sea food, including crab, normal food you will have for steamboat, plus some food you'll see in buffet. I especially like their lamb and the marinated chicken, taste just like satay after fried. Can't remember how many I took, but I think that's the main contributor of the 2KG. Rather than using oil to fry, we choose to use butter, coz it taste much better. And I think the butter I just ate are more than what I had in one whole year -_-"

No more butter for the coming months. I'll switch to kaya. Oh yeah, lately haven't met the aunty that use to sell GOOD kaya around sea park/paramount. I wonder where she is.

**CY, we still have pending task to complete next week --> Movie + Secret recipe cheese cake + remind me to return your stuff

Some thoughts

Read this yesterday and I recalled my own experience.

It's very often that I saw Christian don't touch joss sticks, or anything related to other religion. Well I have no problem with that, because Buddha never encourages that in the first place. In fact, Buddha doesn’t even want his followers to chop trees, not to say doing anything to hurt mother nature. It was when Buddhism spread into China, mixed with local cultures and believes, invented the joss sticks and other methods of praying of Buddha.

So what happen was, a woman came into the shop and saw a jewelry that look quite similar to what a Buddhist would wear. It, of course, got nothing to do with religion, but the woman complained that the "thing" is making her feel sick, and it would stop ALL the Christians from coming into the premise. The next day i grab a Christian friend and ask what's wrong with the jewelry, and he says I asked the wrong question, I should had ask "What's wrong with the woman!"

‘all hardcore religious enthusiasts are just weird’. This is really a good one. It doesn't matter which religion you are in. These people just don't have respect and tolerance towards other religion. And more often they are the source of conflicts, or in serious cases, war.

Later I remove the jewelry. Partially because of the woman, and I'm going send those stuff back to the supplier anyway, so might as well do it earlier.

Gonna go out to celebrate birthday with a hardcore joker. Now this is the only few hardcore type of people I enjoy being with :)

Finally, my first entry in 2006!

This time less people message and call to check whether I'm alive or not for not blogging for SOOOOooOOoooo long... May be my new year wish message shows that I'm fine.

By the way, if you didn't receive my new year message, which I send to all the phone numbers in my handphone, please email me at "chiaway@gmail.com" and update me your new number! Like, I have more than 30 bounce back, more than 10 messaged back and ask who am I, and another near ten called for the same questions. In the process I made a few new friends, like "Oh, since you message me( or since you got my number), I think we are destined to be friends... blah blah....

I also met some friends who totally forgot who am I, but pretending to be remember, saying something like "Hi, I had been missing you too, same wishes goes to you too, hope we can meet again. Before that, may I know who are you?"
I was like, "@$*&#$(^*&*(&#$$($#!!! forgot who am I still can miss me? It didn't take them to recall when I screw them maximum... hehe...

I think I also get cursed by some people. Like, it suppose to be my friends' number but may be my friends lost it/change, due to prepaid now is so god damn cheap, RM 5 for RM 25 value of calls, some are few cents cheaper, some even got active 8! So I think what happen was, after a while maxis start to sell back the numbers to the market, like they always LOVE to do when a number expired. This new owner must be in the middle of getting lucky for the new year but my message just came in, spoiled the whole romantic suppose to be event, and he/she gonna spend the new year alone.

So I think their curse came true. With the latest virus definition updated, windows firewall on, best known spybot software in the market, my computer, still didn't survive the attack. It hacked into my pc, installed dunno how many unlicensed pirated software, block all administrative access, block the IE from browsing, changed my leng looi wallpaper into some "you com got hacked" message, started an email worm keep sending messages every millisecond, eat up all the resources, and the Norton, at the same time, giving virus and worm warning but it says "Detected but failed to clean". Like you go to hospital, the doctor say "You are sick but I dunno how to cure you". What's the name? AIDS?

Holy shit, have you ever get such huge attacks at the same time? It's like the whole internet are throwing everything they got at me. I wasn't even browsing/downloading porn! Nothing I could do, so I switch of the power, format the harddrive and reinstall windows. After whole day of software installation and formatting, It works for like, 3 hours before everything same start to happen again! What a good way to start my new year -_-"

Lucky me for having tons of additional hard drives for backups. I took a brand new one and install. So far, everything works fine, but... I'm still thinking a way to retrive my data from the old hard drive, without getting spied/virused/spy-botted/hacked/wormed again. Now using firefox as my main browser, enabling high security + firewall, disabling all the active-X and pop-ups, browsing net is so uneasy.

Ok, got to go, any suggestions from computer experts are most welcomed.
