They expect me to vote for someone of a tv show I don't watch just because she's from my same country.

If you'll excuse me, I got better things to do.

207 criminals

Ok, if the official census found 207 guys living with girls below 15 years, what is the police waiting for to nab them?

Of course, their neighbors know who these people are, and even cases that weren't reported. Just remember you're as guilty as the jerks who rape kids if you don't denounce them.

If you can't buy it, try to copy it.

That seems to be Google's slogan. Their newest invention is Knol.

If you want to know how good or bad it is as a imitaion of Wikipedia, maybe we should compare their respective explanations about Knol:

Not *my* fault again

The PAHO says it, not me.

So don't blame me for going postal one of these days.

Need for speed

Seriously, they expect me to drive a car designed to travel at more than 100 km/h at barely 40 km/h? Jeez...

Anyways, here's a new FF13 trailer:

BoaB strikes again

Just when you might have thought that BoaB couldn't get any worse, it actually happens.

Next time, we'll see the effects of orange juice on a MtG card.

Not just random words

This is a message from a friend of mine (translated by me) to a guy who went to a party, and woke up the next day not even remembering how he got home, and a girl called him, and he didn't remember having even met her (miss translations abound):

I have more than 4 years here knowing you, and as it may sound illogic, and dumb, I have taken to like you, as to other CaSAurs.

Try to drink to have fun, not to play stupid in the streets, that can lead you to a high-risk sexual relationship you're not even going to remember, that can lead you to AIDS in less than 5 minutes.

Look, and this is for everyone else, that virus is real, I have it in my blood ever since 3 years ago, and only found out 1 ago.

I'm a slave for life of 3 medicines that are very expensive (Reyatz, Truvada y Norvir) all together, for a month the treatment costs around US$1200.

Not only the medicines, once a month I have to go to a medical check, they take 7 blood samples of me, that check:

Viral Charge: amount of AIDS copies per cm3 in my blood.
Lymphocyte CD4: something that fights off AIDS
Hepatic function: how the medicines affect my liver.
Resistance: how resistant the virus is to my medicines.
Phenotype: checking that the virus hasn't mutated, and is still stuck to T cells thru receptor CCR5, if not I gotta change my medicines.

These tests are worth US$900, so we're talking about US$2100 total per month.

This disease is not exclusive to homosexuals, it doesn't restrict sexual preference nor social classes.

Take care dude, everyone take care, this is something delicate, not a game.


By the way, my friend is the lucky ones who detected the disease in time, and since he's not a psycho sex lunatic, hasn't spread it to tons of people as some other people do.

Thankfully for him, his family and friends haven't dumped him because of the disease neither.

He's expected to be able to live a normal life for the next 20 years if he takes care, and keeps his medical checks in order.

This is no random ad, nor a e-mail chain. This is a real person I've known for years, and just like any person out there, someone I didn't expect to have this disease.

Seriously, everyone out there... take care... be safe...

Another one bites the dust

Not only another year has passed, but today the finnish girl in our house left, and more government heads are going to roll, and will keep rolling.

Seriously, I have to congratulate the people who have domesticated us into accepting those kind of news and not running like madmen putting the corrupt government official's offices and homes to the torch.

I could have accepted if the money donated to help the homeless was used to pay a political person's family or friend's construction company to build houses for the homeless, but spending it on useless consultings? Seriously, they have no shame.

And the worst part is that they'll never give a cent back, nor spend a day in jail for real, right? Right? Right!?

Since most of us never hear of the good things other people do in silence to help others, here's my good deed for today:

Something in the mail again

So, my first issue of research*eu just arrived. A good read in your free time, and the best part is that they send it to you for free.

A nice one for the kids out there:

I dare you to find any telephone number in this website that actually works.

How I fucking hate this piece of crap people call country.

Ups and downs

Now that the Wii's controller makes people do some exercise to play game, comes a knew slacker tool:

EPOC Emotiv

Not that I have an issue with the new technology that will finally take away the fear that loosing a hand would impair me to play videogames; and I hope that with proper adjustments it'll eventually help me realize my immortality theory of getting my brain preserved in a jar while playing WoW forever.

But, I'm sure some lazy mothers will complain that their kids grow fat because they only sit down and watch their screens while playing with their minds.

Lets see if I can finally remember my blood type.

So, according to the blood type mythology:

Type B
Best Traits: Wild, a doer, cheerful.
Worst Traits: Selfish, irresponsible, arrogant.

PS. It's group III in the russian system.

Instant Messengers are good for work

Here you have it.


Some scholars worry that Instant Messaging (IM), by virtue of the ease with which users can initiate and participate in online conversations, contributes to an increase in task interruption. Others argue that workers use IM strategically, employing it in ways that reduce interruption. This article examines the relationship between IM and interruption, using data collected via a (U.S.) national telephone survey of full-time workers who regularly use computers (N=912). Analysis of these data indicates that IM use has no influence on overall levels of work communication. However, people who utilize IM at work report being interrupted less frequently than non-users, and they engage in more frequent computer-mediated communication than non-users, including both work-related and personal communication. These results are consistent with claims that employees use IM in ways that help them to manage interruption, such as quickly obtaining task-relevant information and negotiating conversational availability.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I got a IM conversation to do.
