I love reading. I love books. I personally feel that if you’re gonna read, it’s nicest to read from a book. A real honest to god book pages made from paper, and NOT an electronic device. That’s my personal opinion. So it really annoys me sometimes when some of my friends, who think that it is best to read from electronic devices cause its cheap/free and it makes you (look) ‘tech savvy’, scoffed at me for reading from a book. And they never get bored of mocking me for spending money on books when “you can get the e-copy of it so easily for free or a much cheaper price online!” Well, guess what? I like reading from books!

And from what I’ve heard, people who really loves reading prefers to read from books and not computer screen. So really, don’t tell me what and where I should get my ‘reading-fix’ when you yourself is not a reader. Geez!

More Idiots

So, like I said in the post before this, in light of recent ‘events’, Facebook has been like a mad house. People pouring out their feelings, lashing out their anger, spreading rumours and to add to the list, create rumours. I really don’t know how anyone would actually fall for this and believe it, but the truth is, some did.

Brief background. Apparently people have been posting on President Barack Obama’s Facebook wall, asking for help. Some even went as far as to create a petition with the White House. I thought all these are pretty stupid moves. If you wanna complain, at the very least, pick an international body to complain to. Not the White House! The White House is mainly in charge of anything American. It’s not that they don’t wanna help us, but it’s really not their job. So really, how idiotic can a person be to post an SOS on Obama’s Facebook timeline? Luckily someone realized and created a petition with United Nations. I think that at least will bear more fruit as compared to a petition to the White House.

But no doubts, there are still ridiculous people in the world. I went onto Facebook yesterday and say a number of people posting this, sincerely believing that President Barack Obama actually wrote this. They were so excited commenting, “The world heard us! President Obama speaks!” “OMG! So happy! Finally people started listening!” “Wow, I’m so touched.

*smirk* I was thinking, “You must be touched in the head to believe this was written by President Obama!”20130510-013343.jpgThe most obvious clue : I’m sure President Obama has got a much better command of the English Language than the one written above. I mean, even my 12 year old nephew can write much better than that.

The idiot ? The one who wrote this. Trying to create rumour. Unfortunately, he or she has a bad command of the English Language. Actually make that horrendous. Even more unfortunate, he or she doesn’t seem to realize that.

The even bigger idiots? Those who actually believe this and share it happily.

Gosh. The comedy I get from Facebook sometimes. This sure gave me a good laugh. *smirk*

Flying Rumours

With the recent ‘events’ since Sunday night, Facebook has become a madhouse. Nope. Not kidding. If you’ve got a lot of Malaysian friends, you’ll know what I mean. First there were all the pissed off, sad, disappointed and disbelief statuses. The one thing all those statuses have in common is that they’re all laced with utmost disgust. Those? were fine. I understand how everyone felt. But what came the next day is the start of a ridiculous craze, that I’m sure will go on for quite some time, on Facebook.

Some idiot said some stupid thing and now the entire Facebook, and even my Whatsapp, are filled with all kinds of rumours flying around. Everyone is urged to go for ‘this rally’. Everyone is urged not to go out if unnecessary. Everyone wear ‘this colour’ to show support. Do not wear this or that colour or you may be caught. Etc etc. All these rumours end with, “There are people asking you to do this (or not to do this). Do not believe it. It is a trick the other side is using to con you. Please forward and let your friends know.” And by midday, I was like “What the f*ck?!” Really, people? Please get your facts right before you post anything on Facebook or forward a message along. If you don’t have anywhere to check your rumours with, then for crying out loud, use your common sense! Don’t simply forward the message or post stuff on Facebook and create a whole lot of tension and fear (as if people are not worried and depressed enough!).

What’s worse is, those people who are idiotic enough (I wanted to say stupid, but I’ll sound overly mean, no?), will follow in your footsteps and re-post the rumours or forward the rumours on to their friends. It gets annoying after a while seeing so many people sharing the same thing over and over again when it’s very obvious that they’re merely rumours and most are probably untrue!

Don’t create panic or hatred or fear at a national level.

Don’t simply spread rumours.

Have some ‘social intelligence’.

Don’t be an idiot.

Use your brains.

Word.

20130407-202847.jpgWelllll… Okay. I’m not that blunt. But at the very least, I don’t fake my reaction, likes or dislikes in front of people. What you see is what you get. And I’ll admit. Lately, I’ve been getting pretty good at saying things other people haven’t got the balls to say. 😉 Of course I don’t simply diarrhea from my mouth. I only say it when it’s necessary, and of course when it’s the effin’ truth. Lol. And it feels so bloody liberated, truth be told.

Of course there will be people who would rather hear fake facts and see fake reactions that will make them feel good about themselves, and they’d be those people who deemed me ‘rude’, but hey, I really don’t give a damn. Not anymore anyway. I know that I am well mannered and well brought up. I just decided that I will not lie and fake my way through life. Yeah, even though I may not fake my reactions, likes or dislikes, it doesn’t mean I show them rudely. There’s always a more polite way to do things. It’s just that sometimes, no matter how nice or polite you are at telling people truths, they’d rather be given lies and feel good. So let ’em be. They’ll never know people’s true opinions of them and will never grow and improve. 🙂

On a slightly different note, speaking of saying what everyone else hasn’t’ got the balls to say, I gotta express my amusement over the idiocy of certain people. I saw a few people sharing this on Facebook and I can’t help but wonder when I saw the picture for the first time, “Which idiot would believe that this is true???”20130414-001117.jpgAnd I was surprised. There are actually a couple of people who believed that picture. I mean, seriously?! Even if Bill Gates wanted to give back, he’d donate to charity, create scholarship funds, conduct a competition to give intelligent students scholarship, etc etc. NOT give anyone who share this picture RM 5000. Yes, he is a rich man. But please bear in mind that he became rich because of his brains and innovative thoughts. Do you really think a person with that good a brain and works his way up the ladder of wealth will do something like that and encourage unproductiveness? Geez! And tot think some of the people who fell for this fake picture have pretty good brains. Some people are just unbelievable! 😉

I Beg To Differ

Saw someone post this on Facebook. A little smirk start to appear on my face as I read it. 20130109-025406.jpgIt’s not that I don’t agree with the stuff stated in the picture above. But not everything on it is accurate. According to the picture above, what this MaryEllen Tribby is saying is that all ‘successful people’ is, as a matter of fact, perfect. A saint. Flawless. And of course, the ‘unsuccessful people’ are the many definitions of everything not perfect.

There are tons of ‘successful people’ I know who don’t like to show gratitude, don’t give compliment to people other than themselves, who hold grudges, do not learn continuously nor embrace change, and certainly most definitely not exuding joy. Successful people bitch about others too. They don’t all, as indicated above, read everyday, talk about ideas, and share information and data. Heck, sometimes, successful people are the people who criticize the most. The list goes on. I’m not saying ‘successful people’ aren’t all that is mentioned above, but that they have flaws too. They are afterall human. The maybe some of the things mentioned above, but not all.

And let me just say, there are ‘unsuccessful people’ who exudes joy instead of anger as indicated by the diagram above, simply cause they’re contented with their less successful life. And not all ‘unsuccessful people’ hold grudges. Not all ‘unsuccessful people’ don’t set goal, given, the majority don’t. And ‘unsuccessful people’ don’t always talk about other people.

I personally think, this chart is somewhat biased. Though, I won’t deny that the ‘successful people’ holds some of the qualities mentioned above and those ‘unsuccessful people’ exhibits some of the bad qualities mentioned above. However, I don’t think they are solid enough to be used as an indicator for success. I just don’t think it’s fair to group things up like that. I think it to be rather stupid, if I may say. Then again, I’m not that successful yet, so maybe I don’t know that much about success. *pun intended* *sarcasm oozing* *smirk*

One last thing. If we were to strive to achieve all the qualities listed above to be successful, then I can most definitely say, we’re heading down a damn boring journey in life. Yes, we must always strive to be a better person, but please, don’t lose the fun. Don’t lose yourself in the process. And don’t be fake. Be human. I smirked outright at the ‘talk about people (unsuccessful) vs. talk about ideas (successful)’. Oh puh~leaseeee…..

Your Shit Or You’re Shit?

20121112-142740.jpgOh, burn! Lol! I don’t mean to sound mean, but maybe I should send this card as a Christmas present to some of the people I know who aren’t really good in their English Language but yet, they try to boast their ‘exemplary’ use of a great vocabs. Unfortunately for them, they seem to know the words, but not the use of them. 😉

Really, people should stick to simple words if they know their command of the English Language ain’t good. At least, ask someone how to use a certain word if you’re not sure, before using it time and again. If not, don’t use those big words. A simple example, I know of someone who keep using the word ‘blast’ wrongly in the birthday wishes she wished others. Instead of “Have a blast”, she will say, “Have a blast day.” The heck’s a ‘blast day’?! Gosh. And this is only one of the simple examples. Don’t get me started on the others. Don’t know how to use a word? Don’t use it until you’ve fully mastered the use of it. Stick to simple words first. Gosh!

What’s the point of using all the flowery vocabs and then end up looking like a complete idiot when your sentences sound like you’re the shit who don’t know their shit. Smirk. 😉

Lousy Parents!

Alright. Let me say first that I love kids. They’re just a bundle of joy. I mean, I’m the kind that don’t understand how some of my friends can not like children, though I understand we all have our difference preference. But, three nights ago, this family, for the first time in my life, made me so annoyed at their kids, and more so at the parents themselves, that I actually glared at the entire family, kids included. Felt bad later about glaring at the kids, but wished I had given the entire family, kids excluded, the one finger salute.

Parents, aunts & uncles, grandparents and 3 kids. The 3 kids belonging to the same set of parents (guess the aunts & uncles didn’t bring theirs along). With all the adults around, they can’t even keep their kids around their table! Those kids were aged about 2-6 years. The two youngest ones were running around the tables yelling and screaming. Get this, the adults, none of them, including the parents, did anything to stop the kids. They just continue with their conversations, not being bothered that all the ruckus was disturbing all the other patrons of the restaurant. It just shows how well-behave the kids were. I get it that kids can be noisy, and cheeky, bratty even, but not to this extend. Or maybe the fact that the parents couldn’t give a shit about the noise they were making is making their kids look worse.

By then, I already saw the other patrons throwing dirty looks at that particular table. Families from other tables were shooting daggers with their eyes towards that particular group of irresponsible adults. But what made me really snap was when the eldest son, came to the table directly next to mine, climb up on the chair and attempted to jump towards our table. I think his grandma saw him just in time and stopped him midair, cause him to falter and drop to the group in her arms. I was shocked beyond words. I gave the grandma a look, then turn and glared at the parents. Ugh.

For crying out loud, if you can’t take care of your kids, don’t be stupid, please don’t have any! It’s such a shame that some parents couldn’t even be bothered to teach and care for their kids.
