Lower than Crab Mentality

"I'd rather work with someone who hates me but is good at his job than work with someone who likes me but is a complete idiot." -- Donald Trump (not exactly sure if he said it. I remembered reading it on Reader's Digest)

The Myth of Give & Take

How long has it been? More than two years maybe of giving relationship advice and right now I'm going to throw it all away. If you haven't done so already you can have those crappy advice printed out and use them as toilet paper. Before continuing please DO take note that I am NOT QUALIFIED to do this and I have no professional background on the subject matter. Furthermore, I don't have a wall filled with expensive certificates paid via college loans that will likely never pay off. :p

Someone's bitching already? What did I just say?

I was originally slating a time to blog about one of my idealistic methods of improving this country grow when I stumbled upon this article while hooking up my Twitter with local news networks.

First and foremost, it is no military secret that certain government services are ruled by ludicrous incompetence. To air and sensationalize it on international news would be superfluous. Broadcasting to the world that a 3rd world country has poor law enforcement is like booing at Saddam Hussein - we get it, okay?! But to bear the weight of criticisms from the entire world (or at least in Asia) on the failure of a dozen under-trained and outdated policemen is just overkill for such a small issue (and I do emphasize SMALL because that's what it really is). Foreigners die in our country or ANY country for that matter. Hell, we have Iranians, Indians and Koreans getting mugged, raped, murdered or just plain drunk they slipped and fell. Where was your bleeding heart for them?

Secondly, there are literally hundreds of departments in our government, do you honestly expect Noynoy to actually review, criticize and overhaul all of them in two month's time? Shit, I've had 3 software projects lined up for me and I don't even bother to go into the details in all three of them unless I'm actively working on them! It's just too daunting. "The President's job is more critical", you say? I don't buy that crap! Every job entails a degree of urgency that's why it's called a "job". If I don't do my job I cost the company millions - a loss that can just as well be equated to the deaths of Chinese tourists on a bus because someone failed to do their job right. And NO, that is not an apple to oranges comparison! Put simply, you don't do your job - any job - you lose big!

The mistakes of that incident are pretty much highlighted in every discussion. So, yeah, they get that too! They know what went wrong and they're currently fixing it. You think it's easy to spend months in SWAT training? Plus it's going to be even tougher now that they know that they have a lot of catching up to do!

If you complain about our government and want to make a change, YOU run for office. I believe that's what Dan Quayle said and that's exactly what Noy did. At least as a Filipino citizen he exercised his rights. I didn't see YOU running for office and I most definitely didn't see you or any "concerned citizen" storming in that bus and taking down the hostage taker yourself.

Again, I would like to remind us all that complaining and shooting down each other only detracts us all from national stability. If you think there's a better way, you make it happen because no one else will. Do your part as a Filipino.

P.S. Making desperate potshots at this post's wrong grammar, if any, does not count as a valid argument. Stay on the issue!

My New Blog Direction

Okay, this has somewhat gone far enough. After many days of brainstorming as to what to blog next I begin to think that maybe this isn't my thing.

I'm now on Twitter

Okay, after finally breaking down and giving in, I've decided to sign up for a Twitter account. Personally, I find this service somewhat claustrophobic (for lack of a better word), due to the fact that my ramblings could go on as long as the 140 character limit that Twitter provides. If I wanted to rant in that span of characters I would have done in through my cellphone.

Oh, well, since it links up with Flickr, Blogger and Facebook I might as well get with the program.

The Psychological Benefits of Masturbation

Let's face it, guys. There's nothing like a quick wank to get the testosterone out of your system. To my love, I apologize in advance for the content contained in this blog. ;)

I admit there are times we just have the carnal urge to just get it on with anything with a hole. So my advice would be this: Do NOT resist temptation! Yes! Give in to the call to spank the monkey, polish the bishop, choke the chicken and all the other colorful discrete metaphors we can think of.

Everything in its time...

Tissot T-Race Nascar

My professional life has been recently wrought with just one criticism about me: An iherent lack of urgency. Mind you, it doesn't mean I don't take my work THAT seriously. But still, the white boys and their ass-kissing buzz fanatics seem to take this in a more, uhm, paranoid-the-sky-is-falling tone.

Why stopping movie piracy is political bullshit

I'd have to admit that a good part of my 160 pesos spent in watching a movie goes to wasting 30 seconds of my life watching an anti-piracy commercial. This along with the snickering of viewers behind me during the broadcast. Of course, it goes without saying that my grin has something to do with my guilt at watching pirated videos. Obviously, the reactions don't surprise me at all but what our "brilliant" national leaders fail to realize is why we bother to make and patronize pirated movies. This all the more makes this bullshit propaganda moot.

Idle Hands

"Idleness is the workshop of the devil." -John Bunyan

Honestly, I originally thought it was St. John Bosco who said that line because our school priest uses that tag line just before we're off for summer vacation (just in case we do something stupid while technically NOT being a student of their school). In case you witless and prejudiced readers out there re-read that line in shock and awe... Yes, I went to a Catholic school for boys so please keep your tongues in your mouths. I'm not exactly the first abomination (it's safe to presume I'm gay if you like) who crawled out of "ideal" cultured environments, you know!

Lost in Transmission

Let's face it: The online life and online community are here to stay. No contest.

My friend ichel posted a video about social network addicts that I have come to realize: SHIT! I'm showing signs of those!

Arrogant West

If there's one thing I can't stand is the attitude of white boys walking in like they own the whole damn world!

Ironically, a lot of western movies demonstrate this fact.

What others are yacking...
