Sounds like some sort of hallucinogenic drug that you take aurally..

Its Halloween.. did anyone have kids come around to their house asking for candy?

You could put some of that non-scratch resin onto instant scratchies.. or on the soles of your shoes so you can glide around on smooth floors..

Zimmer is still the only composer whose music gives me trouble breathing, random spasms and near death experiences.

Team America (the movie by Matt & Trey)

Trivia: Marc Shaiman composed songs and a score for the movie, but the score was rejected by Paramount execs about three and a half weeks before the movie was released. Harry Gregson-Williams was hired to rewrite the score and compose it at the 11th hour. Marc Shaiman's songs, however, still remain in the finished film.

Wow. We could use that for our airplanes.

Or cars. No one can scratch your car.

James: this news ain't pretty:

UNSW isn't a partner university of the german university
so if we apply it costs an extra 600 euro for tuition
that's 1600 euro = 2735 AUD
+ 2000 AUD airfare
+ tax

approx total min cost $5000 AU

not looking so solid

Some C Job
Our client, an R&D center, is actively looking for a team of exceptional C programmers with extensive experience in this software language.

You will demonstrate superior skills in C and be able to understand the following questions to even be considered:

* What is the best way to declare and define global variables?
* How can you determine the byte offset of a field within a structure?
* What is the difference between arrays and pointers?

The end of year is closing and for many of us, industrial experience too.
From what I've heard so far, it's not encouraging. Have any of you guys
secured a place? If not, how are you searching? Which companies have you

Yeah I overheard the name Starcraft being dropped around on the TV. Must have had Korean owners.

Important lesson: don't buy Volvo or Hyundai

I can't help but think grimly of that post now

That huge pileup on Friday.

The car that exploded, killing the occupant was an Hyundai Excel. Interpret it how you will.

And James, I still have your Supertramp album.

Goodbye stranger,

Starcraft got ensnared on.

Anyone listen to or watch the Cox plate? (horse racing for those who dont know)

There was a horse named Starcraft racing, and he was one of the favourites to win, but couldnt go the distance in time and finished 4th.

In case you're interested, Savabeel won..

Hmmm Oktoberfest. My feet are killing me. Plastic cups all over the roundhouse. Lots of drunkenness and stupidity. Plenty of eye-candy...*ahem* for single males. Busu said [to his friend over his mobile], "You missed out on a lot of pussy today. It's your loss, man." I heard over the radio that 2 guys were having sex in the level 1 toilet. Those were the hilights, whichever way you wish to interpret them.

GTA, same addictive fun although each version seems to differ little from the other. Except Vice City has the best OST ever.

Re Rosalie's Bday: What about me? I sacrificed myself to make room for the hair iron curler...that burns...j/k XD

Yi: thats dirty man. Put you rubbish in bins. Your leftovers in fridge. Take out trash once everyday. More if necessary.

raised house + dead rat (i think) + 1 can of Mortein + 1 fly swatter + 1 persistent asian + 1 hour 30 minutes = the elimination of a fly infestation at my house.

james, scott and eric were there too.

For the attention of Yi, Bennie, Kj, and John:

Rosalie's having her 21st party on Saturday October 30th and she would like to invite the road trip crew. The following is the official invitation note, please rsvp to her if you are going.

Thats 2 1/2 yahoo accounts..

Gaming in Japan and they use the world 'cosplay'..

Is it just me or has Hotmail suddenly become more lenient with its storage limit?

Being lectured by the president on fiscal responsibility is a little bit like Tony Soprano talking to me about law and order in this country.

Tekken is an investment for the future, a 'life skill' for computer programmers who need fast fingers..

and unrelated: Comprehensive Election Results.

Monday, October 11, 2004

This is exactly why Tekken and other related video games is relevent.

Practicing Tekken not only sharpens reaction time, but also hand-eye coordination and manual dexterity.

Gameboy and online Poker key to success

Mind.. numbing.. algorithms.. failure imminent..

I feel about as sharp as a bowling ball..

Vague specs plus inability to contact lecturer to verify vague specs can only mean one thing.. an extension..(again, i hope)

Rice bubbles are a great source of air.

The ANZAC spirit now lives on in the detention centres and private schools, and underfunded hospitals and old people who can't afford to live.

Game over, Latham!

On second thoughts, due to input from Benny, PS2 is okay by me. Its either that or watching Charlie pretend to be Michelle/Julia/Xiaoyu.

Thursday, October 07, 2004

she also possesses thickness of head.

u anti-socialite charlie

medina seems to have won but i need to make booking arranements now. first pref is north ryde coz it was so easy last time

Wednesday, October 06, 2004

What is this women up to? I'm definitely going to vote for her, for her massive resilience and thickness of skin.

By the way Butters, have you decided whether it's Medina or Clubbing? If we're doing Medina, I may have to rush home on Saturday and grab my PS2 with Tekken Tag.

Tuesday, October 05, 2004

It's the overmind in the back of Charlie's yard. It does things to people...

What is it about your street? Is it on a curve or something?

Thats bad for all involved..

That also reminds me of a question asked in the Maths Ext. 2 HSC trials that involved using imaginary numbers to show that the average number of crashes for a given intersection is a bit above 2 per year.

I'm not sure what an average is for non-corner stretches of road, proably something smaller..

guess what?
another car slammed into a tree right about 5 minutes ago, outside my house on Vaughan St. For the record, that's the third accident this year.

You could say that Aliens lost. But then they lose in every episode.
And in every episode, they leave something nasty behind.

Saturday, October 02, 2004

ease up people
there is no point whatsoever in criticising that which u can not change (american election).

Much easier to talk about stuff u can change
like how many ppl who do real uni courses (i.e not commerce) r trying to get IT this year???

and how was AvP???
who won?
Aliens or Predators?
(coz apparently we lose according to the billboards)

My dear Yi, as long as Bush has the Christian Right vote, he will win, it is a fact. They don't care that the dude can't form two sentences without the ability to articulate them, Bush has accepted "Christ into his heart" and that makes him one of them. Who better to head the most powerful nation on Earth than one who rationalizes like them and behaves like them? The problem with these people is that they suffer from a mentality that says 'if I believe it then it's true.' You can't argue with them because there's something closed off in their brains that won't allow for debate, or correction. They see the Left with their mouths filled with fanatical hatred and outrageous lies against their political enemies, claim to favor "peace," but in fact advocate a policy that will lead to more chaos, tyranny, and poverty in the world.

There are others who despise the social policies the Democrats are trying to insert into American Society that they will vote Republican just to see them not get away with it - eg: abortion rights, gay rights, separation of church and state, etc.... If I was an American citizen, I would vote Bush just to see those homos without their rights, they disgust me - not to mention those bloody liberal atheists...

On the plus side, if you saw the debate, Kerry looked presidential, while Bush looked unfocused. Kerry was sharp in criticism and rebuttal, Bush was often bumbling.

i control the Russian government.

by subtly posting a message on this blog about their Kyoto Protocal ratification (or lack of) they have responded and have just said they are firm on ratifying it!

yes.. and now.. gosh it's taking ages for Kerry to kick some Bush arse!!
i can see it already. tomorrow's headlines: Bush shock withdraw, Kerry as President!!

and is Norway not one of the top countries to live in?
and are you saying America and Australia is helping the environment by not ratifying the Kyoto Protocal? Mind you, Russia was making news with Putin saying he'll ratify it a couple of months ago (maybe half a year?) but now there's no wind of it...

I was making a point about economic growth and the population which is relevant to the point Alexis made. Not about style of government and the environment, which is the point you made.

But you could be making a different point...

because we all know how good the soviet union was with its efficiency and environment.

in a capitalist country, consumers are the biggest factor in growth.

i am not so sure if that's the case in communist or socialist countries...
