Are u kidding?? Jul. 18th, 2006 @ 11:19 am
Not 2 years have passed since the Terror Tsunami of 2004, and we still have not got our act together. This week's latest edition managed to kill 200+ people again in Indonesia. The fact that the Government did not issue immediate tsunami warnings after the earthquake is horrific negligence. The last time this mistake was made 230,000 people died. However 2004 was the first of its kind for a while, and additional warning systems were supposed to have been in place. Officials they say, were too busy tracing the aftershocks that in the confusion noboby sent out Tsunami warnings.

The trace of events point to another dangerous hurricane season. Has America really learnt its lesson from Katrina. Or will similar mistakes result in yet another monstrous calamity that will send FEMA floating off again. Do not want to wait and watch..

Countdown to kick off Jun. 29th, 2006 @ 03:06 pm
The Clash of the Titans kicks off in just less than 20 hours. After 3 weeks of nonstop action, 2 perfectly placed rest days become the perfect setting for us to catch our breath and realize the spectacle that is awaiting us. Germany V Argentina in a World Cup setting!! Powerful hosts playing a surprising brand of attractive, aggresive soccer against supremely talented lads from the Pampas. The repeat of Finals from '86 and '90, this quarterfinal matchup promises to dish out fare worthy of another final.

So here's to sitting back, relaxing and enjoying one helluva game of football!! Cheers~!

Tale of 2 stories! Mar. 9th, 2006 @ 06:42 pm
Haven't written anything here in months. Today's CNN homepage sparked some fresh thoughts that needed to be penned. No clue if the headlines will be the same when you see CNN, but the irony in the news published at this moment is explosive. The main gut-wrenching story is about one of CNN's reporters narrating his experiences in drought-struck Africa. Having toured the continent the last 6 months, he writes about 3 famines that have made human and animal life miserable.

The other story is about water being found on one of Saturn's moons by the space probe Cassini. This development sure is inspiring to many of us who believe in man's ability to continuously push the limits of technology. However, the seemingly unrelated stories published next to each other makes one wince! The objective behind the Cassini mission just like other space explorations, is to obtain evidence to solve questions behind the origin of life. Funny that billions are pushed towards this noble stimulating cause, when 1/6th of the planet has no clue where to find food and water!!

Sustainability, where art thou?!

» ESPN Horror Show
ESPN has saved its best and most blatant gimmick for the last week of college football. A new analysis team involving Fowler, Herbstreit and May compare this year's USC team against the "Top 11" teams from all-time. The show (broadcasted thrice daily) has these 3 respectable analysts compare apples and oranges and quite astonishingly make a show out of it!!

Each day one team from history is brought in to compete against the Trojans as a war of words and statistics. The analysts break down this imaginary contest and shell out reasons why the Trojans would romp home. Yesterday's example involved a matchup of the 2002 Buckeyes and today's Trojans. Mr. May's argument was that although the Buckeye's defense was stellar, it would fade away compared to the Trojan's two-headed monster of an offense. Mr. May conveniently forgets that the Buckeyes had a very physical defense which delivered a body blow to the 'Canes offense by taking away the McGahee threat. If comparisons are to be made, a Bush'less Trojans team would not score many points against that D.

The point being made here is that with no notable college football action, TV networks are trying various ways to make their analysts earn their pay. While viewers like the theatrics of ESPN's GameDay, this new offering leaves a lot to be desired. Hope with some good games coming up soon, the experts will get back to talking sense and not earn their money by making baseless comparisons.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last Wednesday I gave geelaebee a kidney (1000 points). In July I put money in aldehyde's expired parking meter (14 points). In August I bought porn for ranjaniiyer (-10 points). In November I pulled hemitzer's hair (-5 points). In April I ruled Asscrackistan as a kind and benevolent dictator (700 points).

Overall, I've been nice (1699 points). For Christmas I deserve a red Radio-Flyer wagon!

Sincerely,
bigblue01
