Monks vs Ninjas

China's Shaolin Temple, the cradle of Chinese kung fu, is demanding an apology from an Internet user who said its monks had once been beaten in unarmed combat by a Japanese ninja, Chinese media reported on Friday.
"The so-called defeat is purely fabricated, and we demand the Internet user to apologise to the whole nation for the wrongs he or she did," the Beijing News said, citing a notice announced by a lawyer for the Shaolin monks.


  1. I also demand that you apologize for all the wrongs you've done and condemn your horrible deeds.
  2. Shaolin monks have lawyers???
  3. I will destroy your Kung Fu

For You Sweaty People Out There

Two small fans sewn into the back of each garment and powered by a pocket-sized rechargeable battery pack circulate air across the wearer's skin, evaporating perspiration and keeping temperatures down - a welcome respite from Japan's mid-summer humidity and record-breaking heat in recent days.

If My Mother Were a Doctor

You might expect such an response.

A South African man shot three weeks ago was told to "walk the pain off" and is still trying to persuade hospitals to remove the bullet lodged in his side, a newspaper said Thursday.

Well, ok, that's not entirely true. She would remove the bullet. But she'd yell at you for being so stupid and slow that you got shot in the first place. And if you had to be so incompetent as to get shot, you should have at least made sure the bullet made a clean exit instead of getting lodged in your body. In fact, you should have known that it was a dangerous place to be so you should have avoided it. You deserved to get shot for your poor judgement.

But at least you wouldn't have a bullet lodged in you anymore and that's what's important.

Stinkless Stink Fruit

Durian, also known as stink fruit, is supposed to be super delicious. I wouldn't know. I don't think i would willingly try something that is said to smell like rotting fish. In fact, i would take that as a sign that i should most definitely not eat it. It's banned from hotels, airlines, and Singapore subways, it smells so bad.

But you know Asians. If it's edible in any way, it'll get eaten. Take thousand year old eggs, for example. Look at it. It looks disgusting. But it's soooooo delicious. Mmmmmm.........i wish i could have some now... with some jellyfish. Ah well.

Back to the point. Some Thai scientist has bred a non-stinky stinkfruit. He says it's not any more smelly than a banana. Perhaps now typer195 and i will finally taste its deliciousness.

Blinded By Love

Let me just say this. If, let's say.....oh, you were to hire some thugs to blind me with lye and then 14 years later proposed, i would prolly say yes, arrange to meet you somewhere, then hire some thugs of my own to put your balls through a wood chipper. Whether they chose to remove them from your body first is at their own discretion. But that's just me.

More Than a Bit of Flooding

So, fnord and i were at a restaurant yesterday and the hostess told us how busy they were because they were short one server. No subways, you know?

Fnord and i, being the keen observers of current events that we are, had no clue what she was talking about. I mean, i woke up in the middle of the night because of thundering and lightning so i concluded the big storm might have caused some flooding in the subway tunnels.

I come into work this morning and what should i see on the front page of the New York Times? Apparently, a goddamn tornado hit Brooklyn. Holy bejeezus. I've got relatives in Brooklyn. You'd think that just mebbe someone would give me a call and say "Hey, grandma had a tornado on her street, but don't worry. She's still got a roof." or something. No. Not my family. They prolly thought i got that info via some mythical telepathic link. They beamed the information to my brain. Only, the tinfoil hat kept me from getting the update.

Hello, punished.


Police chiefs in the Thai capital, Bangkok, have come up with a new way of punishing officers who break the rules - an eye-catching Hello Kitty armband. The armband is large, bright pink and has a Hello Kitty motif with two hearts embroidered on it.

From today, officers who are late, park in the wrong place or commit other minor transgressions will have to wear it for several days.

The armband is designed to shame the wearer, police officials said.

"This is to help build discipline. We should not let small offences go unnoticed," Police Colonel Pongpat Chayapan told Reuters news agency.

"Guilty officers will be made to wear the armbands in the office for a few days, with instructions not to disclose their offences. Let people guess what they have done," he said.
