Duck, Duck Bush!

A lot of people are talking about the recent incident were a journalist threw his shoes at President Bush.
Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Iraqi-owned Al-Baghdadiya television based in Egypt, shouted "this is the end" as he hurled them at the American leader.

Although I pity the guy for having poor aim I somehow understand why Mister al-Zeidi chose this course of action.
Bush is the person who many believe is responsible for the demise of his country Iraq, the death of many of his countrymen, the destruction of businesses, the shifting of their entire lives for the worse. Throwing a shoe or shoes at him is a very small, insignificant thing compared to what Bush has done so far.

Many say that that particular action was an insult to all U.S. Americans.
But I beg to differ. It was an insult to only ONE and that one person was the supposed target of those size 10 shoes.

My mother always told me, respect is EARNED and it can never be demanded.
This situation just proves it.

Also, one could wonder if this happens quite often whenever Bush would visit another foreign country. Just look at how fast he managed to get out of the way and avoid those shoes. Reflexes like that need to be honed by constant practice.

He should just be glad there wasn't any bomb in those footwear.

Pacquiao vs. Dela Hoya

Many have said that when Pacman decided to take on Dela Hoya the golden boy of boxing that would be the end of his winning streak. But again, Pacman has proved them all wrong by beating Dela Hoya's beautiful face into a pulp.

The fight was amazing! Pacquiao dominated all the rounds. By round five Dela Hoya's face was already bloodied and many could not believe he could go on anymore.
By round seven it was apparent that Manny will be winning and by round eight, Dela Hoya finally gave up the fight.

Pacquiao won via TKO!

I'm writing this blog while still watching the interviews.
I'll post videos of it when I can obtain them.

Again, congratulations Manny! Saludo kami sa'yo!

And rumor has it, Floyd Mayweather may come out of his retirement to try and take on the Pacman. Now, that's another fight that's worth looking forward to.

Spam! Spam! Spam!

I get spam letters every single day and I must admit that whenever I see them cluttering my inbox and taking up a lot of space, I get really pissed!
I have categorized the 4 types of chain/spam letters.
Often people just forward those stupid, idiotic, nonsense things like :

Spam letter type 1:
Send this to every goddamn person you know within the next five seconds or you will be hit by a flying carabao from the sky.
*P.S. Don't dare ever break this chain for its really true!
It happened to someone I know.
Now the poor guy is in some crappy hospital being treated with salt on his wounds and one of the carabaoes horns is still stuck in his asshole.
Remember, it could happen to you!*

Spam letter type 2:
Make a desperate wish...
Good boy/girl!
Scroll down and count one to *insert infinite number here*.
Now think of someone or something you really like
Then, with lightning fast speed, forward this to 5000 or so people within the next 5 seconds for your wish to come true. blah blah blah
Come on! Do you think people would fall for this type of crap?
Well, if they do. Uhm!
They surely must be that desperate!

Spam letter type 3:
For every spam letter you forward a kid in Aasdljfaidhg who is crippled, maimed, mute and probably haven't eaten for a year will get a dollar.
Some hand in the sky would magically appear in the clouds and would help this pathetic excuse for a human being to finally have a decent meal and get a life he deserves.
So forward this letter now you heartless son-of-a-bitch, if you want to help that poor non-existent kid.
What? You don't want to forward this? Why you good for nothing son-of-a-gun!
Remember the consequences of spam letter type 1.
Well, all the bad karma would happen to you plus some more! *be afraid, be very afraid!*
And don't forget since you refused to help another soul, you would be anally raped by a hundred midgets dressed in gay sailor costumes!

Spam letter type 4:
This chain letter was started since the late 15th hundred by the great Magellan himself, who sailed around the world bringing this exact letter with him for good luck.
If you break this spell by not sending this to your gazillion friends then imps and demons would come out of your closet in the middle of the night and mercilessly sing and dance to the Barney song 'til you are at your wits end and can't take it anymore.
So forward this now!

*Which is really amazing since during those times computers and email still didn't exist. Or I could be wrong which is unlikely.*

My point is I'm sick of spam. I can't block or filter spam that my "friends" have sent but I'm telling you guys if you keep forwarding me those crap I will now block you.
Same goes for those recycled text messages.

Please just stop!!!
