OVERPOPULATION... A MYTH?

Supporting Facts: With 6 billion people on the planet, each person could have 1249 square feet in Texas, enough for a small house and yard, and if you partner up with someone, you would have 2498 square feet for a larger house and yard. A family of four would have almost 5,000 square feet, for a large house and yard. Go to www.overpopulationisamyth.com

Osama bin Laden, Playboy











No, I do not want to be terrorized, but this is just fact.
Before becoming a terrorist, Osama bin Laden led the life of a playboy. Born around 1957 to a wealthy Yemeni father and Syrian mother, bin Laden was heir to part of the massive fortune his billionaire father had accumulated in the Saudi construction business. Naturally, he squandered his days, acquiring a reputation for drinking too much and womanizing in his teens and early 20s in Beirut, a cosmopolitan tourist hot spot. He didn’t become a firmly committed, full-time Islamic radical until he went to fight the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. That’s where Osama began his improbable transformation from a rakish ladies’ man to a mass-murdering zealot, never having worked a day before then. Get more from mentalfloss.com

UNQUOTES 002

In the KAR-MA Sutra, everyone you screw will screw you back.

YESSSS!!!! Guinness is ACTUALLY good for you.

This is from 2003!!! The BBC reported then that the old advertising slogan "Guinness is Good for You" may be true after all. A pint of the black stuff a day may work as well as a low dose aspirin to prevent heart clots that raise the risk of heart attacks. Drinking lager does not yield the same benefits. Guinness were told to stop using the slogan decades ago - and the firm still makes no health claims for the drink. The Wisconsin team who tested the health-giving properties of stout against lager, gave it to dogs who had narrowed arteries similar to those in heart disease. They found that those given the Guinness had reduced clotting activity in their blood, but not those given lager. Original article here. I wonder if Guinness will pay me for blogging about this? Heck, a night of Guinness will do just fine.

Nikon's guerilla-styled launch of the D700 camera in Korea.

At a busy Seoul subway station, Nikon's huge interactive, light-box billboard displayed images of paparazzi. Passersbys automatically triggered flashing camera lights. The accidental superstars then followed the red carpet all the way out of the station and into a mall - directly into the store where they could purchase the new D700.

Sweet.

Yasmin Ahmad in ICU, Twitter Top Ten

Critically acclaimed Malaysian film and TV commercial director Yasmin Ahmad is in critical condition after collapsing during a presentation at a TV station TV3 this afternoon. Yasmin, who gained prominence for a series of commercials touching on community messages for Malaysian gas and petroleum giant Petronas, began her career as a copywriter before rising to become a creative force in the advertising industry.

She was recently inducted into the inaugural Malaysian Advertising Hall of Fame by the Association of Accredited Advertising Agents Malaysia. She won the Asian Film Award at the Tokyo International Film Festival for Sepet in 2004. Sepet and its sequel Gubra won the Best Film award at the Malaysian Film Festival in 2005 and 2006 respectively. Her other films include Mukhsin (2006), Muallaf (2008) and the recently released Talentime.

Yasmin was due to start shooting for a new project in Japan called Forget Me Not with a Japanese producer at the end of the year.

The sheer volume of posts with the words Yasmin Ahmad has propelled her name to the top the list of Twitter's top-10 trending topics, beating Michael Jackson and Tim Burton's Alive in Wonderland.

The Vatican Reviews Harry Potter

Among the countless reviews of the latest Potter flick, The Vatican weighed in with theirs and gave it two thumbs up. The Pope has said in the past that the series has the power to “corrupt the Christian faith in souls even before it could properly grow.” But a review in the Vatican’s official newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, praised the new movie for showing the lines of good and evil and the message that the fight for good requires sacrifice.

The Catholic Church has been reviewing movies for decades. There’s even an office called the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. They review movies to help parents and adults trying to find morally acceptable films and have created their own rating scale. In 1995, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of cinema, the Vatican released their list of the 45 Best Movies. Even “2001: A Space Odyssey” makes the cut, showing just how good the Pope’s taste can be. Go to http://www.usccb.org/ for more.
