Always at Stake

A meteor, another ice age, an outbreak, the press of a button... anyone who watch enough discovery channel will realise it didn't take much to potentially wipe us so call dominant species from the surface of the planet.

On the flip side we could be colonizing Mars in the next couple of hundred years if the dice rolls are good. Either way it is quite a waste to live a boring life in times like this.

Hungry Dogs and tall grasses kept me from performing my parliamentary duties

In conjunction with the latest British drama.

Recently in UK "shit hit the ceiling fan" after a newspaper obtained copies of all the receipts for MPs expenses and published them. It basically showed how the system has been milked, with MPs claiming that expenditure everything from bath plugs and lawn mowers, silk cushions and television sets, potted plants and dog food. The most outrages of the practice seems being abusing the second home programme... basically buying a house with tax payer money and incentives and selling it at higher price, rinse and repeat. :)

These expenses was supposedly "wholly and necessarily incurred for the purpose of performing their parliamentary duties." The House speaker has just resigned in the light of this.

At their mercy

Some say it is because of the increase of demand, others says it is market speculation price and then there are the ones who blame increase cost of operation. Whatever they say if you are an average joe it is almost for certain you have no say over it.

It is the year 2009, and the world is plagued by... pirates?

If you were a kid going up in the 80s the year 2009 would sound like a time when flying cars would become very common -- at least that was what the cartoon and science fiction comic told us. When the real 2009 hit, not only we don't see any common flying car, yet, but the world is plagued by seafaring pirates? As they hijack ships and demand wealth and booty in the age of satellites and cell phone!

Reality is indeed stranger than fiction.

P.S. Went to see "Wolverine" tonight, quite an entertaining show, but resulted in posting this late ^^;
