– an investigation of the human condition

Four Things.


Let’s begin with an incredibly wise saying from the father of a father of a good friend 🙂

“Keep walking and let the dogs bark.”

Apply with diligence. Seek truth with wisdom. Flee from the wicked. Not surprisingly, this reminds me of the whole, “Never argue with an idiot. For they shall drag you down to their level, and beat you with their experience” philosophy.


Okay, just a random update in regards to this dear blog of mine. Thanks to those who have commented/voted/visited etc… We’re averaging about 100 hits a day (not including my own hits :p). But, more interestingly, lately there have been a lot of hits registered from people’s email inboxes (as you can see from the image below). I don’t know what is going on, but I’m getting all these hits from YahooMail, Gmail, AT&T, AOL, Hotmail, Comcast email address inboxes. I’m guessing that it might potentially be the result of an email that’s spreading or ads that are appearing randomly – only thing is that I haven’t signed up or registered for any advertising publicity :s If anyone could shed light, please do. Oh, and the “Elmo is a Black Man” post seems to have attracted the most hits out of any post on this blog, even surpassing the popularity of my Apple iPhone 3G posts! Yesterday it registered about 150 hits on its own!


The third thing that I would like to mention here is an issue I have had with my MSN 😦 You might remember I did a massive MSN into Gmail conversion recently to enable me to use my iChat program for all my chatting needs. I came across a slight glitch a couple of days ago when I noticed that although I had logged out of iChat and shut down the computer, I was still appearing as ‘online’ to my MSN and Gmail contacts. So expectedly, when I logged back in, I was inundated with a whole heap of chats from people thinking that I was online at the time they initiated conversation. So to the 10-15 people who I “ignored” over the past few days, my sincerest apologies. I wasn’t actually online at the time and my MSN client, iChat, lied to all of you. Don’t worry, I hear the WYD priests have massive confessional tents set up in Sydney this week – I’ll be sure to send iChat there to be cleansed from its transgression. Lame joke, yeah…. forgive me.


This post was originally going to just be about Three Things, but this fourth thing was inspired by a young red P-plate (provisional) female motorist who stopped behind me at a red light this afternoon. The car was fairly old school, but appeared to be running alright despite its age. The lonesome driver, a girl whose large “bug-eyes” sunglasses covered three quarters of her head, had her iPod earphones fitted snuggly into both ears as she bopped along to what I assumed to be pretty normal music. Look, during the course of my observation she even sang along to what she was listening to. There’s no shame in that. We all do it once in a while, especially while alone. I admit, I have even engaged in the occassional out loud conversation with myself. lol

Well, I thought nothing of it.. until….. the girl looked straight up into her rear view mirror and with such conviction and passion gave a bloody good rendition of the Gene Simmons “KISS” tongue manouvre as exhibited above. She wiggled it around and everything. I almost died of laughter. Almost.

    🙂 they’re referral hits, so if a link is in an email and they click it to get to this blog, then that’s registered as a hit from an inbox hehe strange ey?
