What the...?

You've gotta see this thing. It's a screen capture image of Ubuntu's review found in For computer freaks and geeks, you will either laugh or say "WTF?" or probably both. In any order. For non-computer freaks and geeks who know what Ubuntu is, you'll get my point. For none of the above, Ubuntu is NOT a game.

The image is accessible here.

What's Cooking?

I cook porridge for dinner today :) I was thinking of putting the instant porridge into the pot with some water and let it boil and put an egg later but I discarded that thought and made a pot of porridge myself.

Rice, water, garlic, onion, ginger, sesame oil, salt, chicken stock. Well, it started with just the rice, water, sesame oil and salt but I thought adding some extra items will enhance the flavour so I put them in.

Next I fried some dried anchovies with some garlic, onion and chillies. Then some thin omelette rolled and cut into stripes. Tada...

As expected, nobody wants to eat what I just made. Except for my Dad. He will eat whatever food available in the kitchen when he's hungry.

Am I actually that bad? I mean nobody wants to eat what I cook. Maybe cooking is not for me. Maybe I should not cook at all.
Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime.

This is like one of the most popular saying of all time. But I found an interesting twist to it.

Give a man a program, and you'll fustrate him for one day.
Teach a man to program, and you'll frustrate him for a whole lifetime.

And so I began searching for others. And yes, there are more available.

“Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you will not have to listen to his incessant whining about how hungry he is.”—Author unknown

“Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you can sell him fishing equipment.”—Author unknown

“Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to use the Net and he won't bother you for weeks.”—Author unknown

“Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Unless he doesn't like sushi—then you also have to teach him to cook.”—Auren Hoffman, Herald Philosopher

“Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish, and he will sit in the boat and drink beer all day.”—OldFox

“Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime. Teach a man to sell fish and he eats steak.”—Author unknown

They are actually interesting. And funny. Credits to Ross Nordeen on the set of fish sayings.

The 6 Most Annoying Coworkers: Are You One?

As usual when I start the browser, Yahoo! pops up and I can see many articles with attention-catching titles and excerpts and I will usually take some time to read them. And I found the article above.

An interesting piece. The 6 characters apply in school too. Skip number 4 coz back then in school nobody uses computer to communicate with each other (OK, maybe some). But I got that a lot in College.

There was a really annoying kid in school that suited number 3. He used bombastic words in his essays and carried a very big thick hard cover dictionary to class and the teacher used to shower him with lots of praises. Maybe he was also number 2. But yeah, I never understand what 'paradigm shift' was. And is. It was the 'it' term back then, but I never knew what it was for.

Now, if only I knew what Buzzwordsmith is back then in school. I would love to use that word on him. And that would make me a Buzzwordsmith too, right? Hmm...

Anything, Whatever

The Anything and Whatever drink is finally here!!! I don't know since when but I just saw the ads on one site. Available at 7-Eleven. I'm soooooooooooo going to buy some just for a thrill.

Yay! Now I don't have to beg anyone from Singapore to get some for me. Like I have ever done that. (I'm not that desperate, OK?)

I Forgot About It... Again

Yeah. Yesterday was Friday, 13th and as usual I totally forgot about it. I didn't go out for some observation on bad lucks that might happen to me or anybody else. So I guess I missed the fun.

Nothing bad happened to me. Just like the other Friday, 13th I had before. One horoscope did mention that Friday, 13th was my lucky day. I wish there are more of those. I need all the good luck I can get. Haha...

Crash Course

My *lalala...* is having one of those very low self esteem moments. He was scolded by his Boss for his bad English.

So I typed "free English crash course" in the search box and I found some useful links. Not exactly what I have in mind. But heck!

And I found this: Czech crash victim wakes up speaking English.

It's pretty funny.

"Hopefully I can pick English up over the winter for the start of next season so I'll be able to speak it without someone having to hit me over the head first."

If only things are as simple as that...
