I think about the future sometimes. Then I drown that thought in Pokemon. However when I am charging my DS or my arms get cramped up I think about it.

My friends and acquaintances comes from all walks of life and handphone models. There's the elite successful iPhone groups, the busy Blackberry's, the classic Nokia's and the ecclectic Androids.

Its nice to see how different they are and how alike they can be.

So right before bed but after trying to introduce one of our rabbits to the new cat, I decided my song playlist needed some more addition even though I added a 16gb microsd I did not even try to fill it up. Such wasted space.

Now it has been added and updated. Finally I don't have to skip 20 songs only to have the same song repeating itself.

Hair Iron

As my hair is getting longer, it has gotten unruly, because the curly part is pushing the straighten hair into the curly direction. So no longer a "fawhawk" but "out of bed". Its not that bad, but it gotten me thinking of getting a hair iron. Hair iron is just two pieces of heated plates that can go up to 210 degrees Celsius (water boils at 100 Celsius okay) and used to iron your hair flat. I used to have one, this really cheap ass iron, that is kinda scary to use, because I am afraid it might melt or electrocute me, but it really does work for my brother, I just don't know how to use it on my curly hair. Perhaps more YouTube videos would help me
This is brand new type whose iron actually rotates and while a pair of brushes, align your hair correctly.
This is the traditional ones with a ceramic plates.
As I was reading about the ceramic plates, I found out that ceramic plates naturally release negative ions. Negative ions is apparently very good to hair because it keeps it from going unruly. Some hair dryers also have negative ions built in it to prevent frowziness. Then it hit me. OMG, this is something from the Electrostatic show! We have this experiment in the Electrostatic show, that we never get to do often, because it requires a volunteer with dry loose movement hair. We take a balloon and rub it against the hair, the hair will stuck to balloon because we transfer all the positive charge from the balloon to the hair and the hair repels each other and sticks to the nearest thing with some negative charge which is the balloon
So bad hair day is caused by built up of static electricity in your hair, so those negative ions in hair irons and hair dryer will maintaining good hair.
You know what I thought, I was like, this could be a science show!, I could bring a hair iron on stage and casually iron my hair in front of the audience and pretend nothing is happening. Its so random and so strange but it helps me to explain the things in life that is related to static electricity. Okay... I think too much about work...

Sweating It Off

I sweat a lot. I can't control it. I sweat when I eat anything above the Mild flavour at Nandos, I sweat if the temperature is above 25 Celsius, I sweat when I am stressed, I sweat when I am angry, I sweat when I perform Science Show, I sweat if my hair is more than 1 inch in length.

I am sweating as I type this. I was born to live somewhere where the temperature is temperate all year long, which probably does not exist because it will probably get uncomfortable or even deadly cold during winter.

I still haven't found the right anti perspirant that actually works, although the combination of a stick deodorant, roll on deodorant and spray deodorant, all at the same time, does work, but come one, 3 types of deodorant. Why can't one work?

Lies! It never works with just one spray!!
Another effect of sweating a lot is that my cologne seems to last for like 3 hours before it has been sweated off. Its like, how can I be those people that seemed to be walking fragrances, how much do they spray, do they have the entire soap, deodorant, shampoo and body lotion along with the cologne they have?
Hmm this guy has the same problem as me too, he has to keep spraying cologne all day long
Right now, I just started to have my hair relaxed or straighten again, I like it so far, but since its longer I sweat a bit easier and when I do sweat, my hair gets damp and wet, as if I just took a shower. I even stop getting my hair wet in the morning so that it will be easier to style when I get to work, but somehow I might need some towels, hair dryer and a flatiron at my desk. I have a mini fan at my desk.
I might be doing this in the office, but with a silent hair dryer of course, or I could just go to our hurricane exhibit to dry my hair and cool myself off all at the same time!
Or I could just drive to work, in my freezing cold aircond in my 21 year old Mercedes and arrived immaculately dry, cologne still intact and hair all spiked up and dry........................................

Volvo V40, Pedestrian Airbag System

Its the latest technology in pedestrian safety. Manufacturers have been trying to improve their score in NCAP, on pedestrian safety. While most manufacturers developed softer bumpers and hoods, design that will lift the pedestrian over the hood instead of tucking it under the car, while Citroen hood raises up during pedestrian collision, Volvo introduces a pedestrian airbag, which covers the front windscreen to further reduce head trauma during a pedestrian accident
This is a standard feature on all of the brand new V40

How the airbag and lifted hood designed to lift, protects a pedestrian during an accident.
Whats my take on this new technology?
I don't give a fcuk. Why would I care about pedestrians living after being hit by a car. Some might scorned at my insensitivity but, I am about to be hit by a car, will I always be flung up onto the windscreen? What if the car runs me over? Is there an airbag to protect me from being rolled over by the tires? So I am thrown onto the airbag, then what? I am stuck and protected there or will I roll off and fall on my neck and break it.
I love airbags, I want 6 of them in my car, but pedestrian airbags? NO!

Dusting and over sharing

As I was dusting my blog, I found someone commented on a recent post. I guess if you read it by the time this post was uploaded you could read it to the right bar side of the blog

basically look here ----------->

Anyhow, I am glad googling helped her with her research

I have been neglecting to blog for the longest time. Its not my fault, I pretend that my brain is wired to the Internet and it uploads everything I see, here and think.

But really, I need my hands for that, and what are my hands busy doing?

Yes, I am busy with my Nitendo DSi XL and I am busy trying to catch them all!! (If you don't know what I am talking about, it's better you don't)

Anyhow, its interesting people still stumble upon my relentless ramblings, after all 4 years of post graduate studies does strange things to you.

Perhaps I learned that some things are better left unsaid, but most likely I am just to lazy to crypt it into a message that only I could understand. Its a shame really.


Despite what people say about we shared to much information online (Facebook statuses, Twitter tweets, Blog posts, Foursquare checkins, Instagram pictures etc2), we are a leaving a legacy, a record of our lives, however immature, dumb, whiny it maybe.

It helps you grow a bit, while reminiscing on "what the fuck were you thinking moments"

Alas, you never know, like I just did, my post managed to help someone.

Onward with over sharing on the Internet!!
