Because I can't win the battles that I fight in real life...

...therefore I celebrate the battles that I fight virtually.


Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am back in reservist. And the same gods that help the army continue to run despite the (high) level of stupidity in upper management has blessed my platoon with impossible tasks that require impossible work.

So let's talk about the battles that do give me satisfaction: Battlegrounds. I have been hitting the battlegrounds in WoW for the past couple of weekends and I finally get my name on the board. So as of today, little elven girl Tylys is now among the top 2000 players on the Dragonblight server.


Now, if only I could kick this much ass in real life.

Durex 'sex ring' advertisements in 7-Eleven stores could infect young minds. Remove them

I was at the 7-Eleven store at Ginza Plaza when I noticed a poster on the sale of a 'vibrating sex ring' by Durex.

The poster was placed prominently on the store front and the product advertised was on offer. Despite the fine print stating that it was for sale only to those above 18 years, it depicted the sex toy as a wedding ring. It desecrates the sanctity of marriage with such an association.

Such morally questionable products should not be advertised so prominently in a family store.

I would like the management of Durex and 7-Eleven to explain the rationale for placing such advertisements in the stores as they could infect the minds of young students.

Does the relevant government department vet such advertisments? Are there no laws to govern the display and promotion of such products?

Despite the propagation of objectionable materials on the internet, the authorities and civil society should take steps as far as possible to stop such advertisements from polluting our young minds.

Lucas Ho Wei-Jie

OK...How should we begin to talk about this?

Firstly, perhaps we should really start with the idea that a vibrating sex ring (aside from being tacky) has the ability to suddenly pollute young minds. I especially like the fact that Lucas seems to think that young minds can become infected by these advertisements. Infected by what specifically, he does not say...

Secondly, I like that he seems to think that sex and marriage aren't really tied together. I mean, the institution of marriage has nothing to do with sex...no siree...Can't talk about sex and marriage or even associate the two, otherwise, we will pollute young minds and destroy the institution of marriage. (It has, however, been said that the institution of marriage may be destroyed without the association with sex...But that's only said by the most depraved of individuals and they should be kicked out from our pure society...)

OMG....Is this from the same generation of youths that kill themselves over physical inadequacies? Where do such (ridiculously) puritanical viewpoints come from? (People, look at the poster for yourself and see if it incites you to lust...or worse depravations...)

I'm pretty speechless for now...Pop in a comment please.

Gamers who make gamers look bad.

  • Mwahahahahahahahahaha!'

  • The Griefer

    How to spot one: They are the guys who wait till you have fought the monster to death's door before dealing the killing blow - and making off with the loot. Also the ones who heal a monster while you are fighting it or leading it into your path. Griefers exist to piss you off, and they delight in your anger and misery.

    Tutorial example: Full-time nationa serviceman Nicholas Leong, 23. Thinking of creative ways to annoy people in games is his art.

    Backstabbing the only healer present at a heated battle or leading angry monsters right into the path of unsuspecting players is all in his day's work.

    Moment of glory: 'There was a dungeon with a huge boss. Normally, there's a truce between different factions, you leave them alone when they are attempting to fight it. But I snuck up and started tempting it to attack them. Over 100 players died.'

    The excuse: 'It's somewhat childish but knowing there's a living person on the other side getting angry and jumping up and down amuses me. Anyway, it's usually payback for players who piss me off.'

  • I believe that these are the people that, should I ever meet them in real life, will end up with their keyboards crammed up their asses. The problem with "griefers" is that they have the mentality of 11 year olds who really just want attention whether it's good or bad. They're the players who will deliberately sabotage a well planned raid in order to further their own agendas with hissy fits and namecalling.

    The worst part of all this is that there are mature gamers (read people over 25) who are really online for only a fraction of the time needed to play, who organise raids because 1 run is all they have, and get screwed when someone does something this malicious. Argh.

    Oy. smacks forehead.

    For all who had high (ish) hopes for X-Men 3.

    The characterisation, although true to the comics, falls terribly flat here. And by terribly flat, I mean roadkill.

    *Smacks forehead*

    /me takes out shovel and begins digging the grave.

    "RIP X-Men, we barely knew ye..."

    What right?

    ...What right does a government have to govern when they can wave a $100 million dollar carrot to a rabbit that did not vote for them before...when they had the responsibility to give the constituency the carrot to begin with? After all, the rabbit paid for the carrot? What right do they have to withhold that?

    It sounds a little like Dubya and Katrina. Louisiana didn't vote for Bush and they get screwed...

    How's this for responsibility? If you get voted in, you get the whole shebang. The bad and the good, whether we voted for you or not...

    Let's face it, when all's said and done, we're going to have another PAP led government. That's not necessarily a bad thing but let's hope that the margin of votes humbles them so that they start remembering what a government's job is.

    They're there to serve us.

    Troll-be-gone anyone?

    So apparently, I've got troll problems...again.

    This one's a pretty daring one. I mean the sheer bravery of posting on a website with absolutely no indication of ones identity means...It's really ballsy.

    But since this is my website, I get to have the final say on the main page.

    So there.

    Anonymous, the fact that you have never once addressed the issue of a fair election means that you're off topic. T-O-T-A-L-L-Y which spells "totally"...look it up since you're not big on the reading.

    You've got (self-perceived) arguments that you may think are legitimate because you read them in a book somewhere or because you've just discussed it in social studies. Perhaps you're a mindless automaton towing the party line. I don't know. But I do know this: You're in my house now. And to (mis)quote Frank Miller:

    "This isn't a [blog]. It's an operating table, and I'm the surgeon"

    Go read up a little bit more before you come here with your assumptions and spew your crap all over the carpet. Otherwise, I'm going to have to take you out and spank you.

    I have found my calling...

    ...and it's a 1 kilo prime rib.

    I love making people eat their words and I am trying to figure out if it's actually possible to finish 1kg of beef in 1 hour. (Plus 2 sides...I've already asked...)

    I think I can. It's only 1 kg. Normal steaks in Singapore leave me unsatisfied and I really don't think that my capacity for a meal has diminished that much.

    So, what do you think?
