Where Babies are Made?

Last time, my fren told me that when she was young,
her mom told her that babies are made in the armpit.

It just occured to me that maybe because armpit hair is like pubic hair.

Ahh... Randomness. XP

ps, I'll be going Redang Island the next 3 days!
Don't miss me! XP

The Hurt Locker

I've never heard of this movie until yesterday when it won
Oscar for Best Picture,
over Avatar.

I mean, I think Avatar was like WOW so I was expecting it to win but oh well... =(
Anyway, I decided to watch this movie yesterday with Ken Yang
(since he downloaded it already)
to see what is it all about.

Ok, firstly, the casts.

This movie is about war so mainly there's only guys.
I think female casts only showed up like 10 minutes (or less) in the screen.
FYI, this is a 2-hour movie.

I must say, as a girl, I'm not a big fan of war movie.

However, the opening was quite interesting.
It started off with this quote :

"The rush for battle is often a potent and lethal addiction,
for war is a drug." - Chris Hedges

Then they have this scene where they used remote-controlled robot to defuse bombs and things like that.

There's also this quite cute guy (I thought he was the main character).

He is Sergeant Matt Thompson in the film.
Guy Pearce in real life.

*Just joking!*

He and his friend (whatever the name is, Not So Cute) had this funny conversation (my personal favorite in the entire movie) when the robot couldn't push some object :

Handsome : Now push it in.
Not So Cute : I can't.
Handsome : What you mean you can't? Pretend it's your dick, man.
Not So Cute : (laughs) How about if I pretend it's your dick?
Handsome : You'll never get in if you did that. Here, let me have a shot.
Not So Cute : Give me a second.
Handsome : No, come on. My dick, man.

God it was hilarious!

So I was thinking,
"Nice opening quote, cute guy, funny conversation... Hey, this movie is really not bad!"

Then, the only guy worth looking at in the entire movie died in the first 10 minutes.


Then his position was replaced by this guy.
I don't remember his name.
Let's just call him Ugly.

Even the Camel was cuter.

In my opinion, this movie was just OKAY.

It's mainly on what a war is really about from a soldier's eye.

It showed what soldiers had to go through in Iraq.
Hidden bombs are everywhere and they get sudden attacks too.
Then these soldiers have to diffuse the bomb (it's mainly on diffusing bomb only actually) and kill the bad guys.

However, instead of like 1 whole big troop of armies, their team only consist of 3 people.
So you don't get those fighting and bombing in a large scale thingy.

The reason why I said this movie was just OKAY was because they gave a few examples of what a soldier have to go through and that's it.
They don't really develop the scenes.
I mean, it is good that they showed us what's going on and all but it was too brief.
They don't even explain like what are all the hand signals the soldiers did.

Let me put it this way,
they make you high but not high enough for you to reach orgasm.
That was how I felt.


To me, there wasn't a proper story line in this entire movie.
I mean, they started off with diffusing bomb in Area 1, then handsome guy died, new guy comes, diffuse bomb in Area 2, diffuse bomb in Area 3, fight bad guys, diffuse more bombs, mental breakdown, go back USA, buy cereals, go back Iraq to diffuse more bombs and THE END.

You would love this movie is you play games like Call of Duty.
The backgrounds were quite similar.
(I played before. Haha.)

Besides, you don't really get all the high-tech equipment.
I think the highest-tech was the remote-controlled robot.

However, there's this 1 scene that was quite inspiring.
The soldier went back USA and was buying cereal at the supermarket.
There was endless number of choices.
To him, however, it doesn't make any difference.

There were far far FAR more important things in life than doing all these petty lil things.

Anyhow, personally, I don't think it deserved the Oscar.
Avatar was better. =)
The Hurt Locker probably gets a 7 while Avatar gets a 9.
(1 being the lowest, 10 is highest)

Maybe the judges were COD fans?
I don't know. XP

ps, "Hurt Locker" is a slang for being injured in an explosion, as in "they sent him to the hurt locker"; "a place of ultimate pain."

You've heard about this right?

However, seeing how so little friends of mine have it,
I decided to write a post about it. =)

Basically, Twitter just like Facebook's status update section.

Like it or not, just like Facebook, Twitter is becoming such a trend.
Even the media had to publish the news when some astronaut first tweeted from the space.

So what's making it so HIP?

1st of all, I think its because people just have this urge to constantly tell others what they are doing or feeling.
Unlike Facebook, Twitter is more personal to me and we can just post a few rants within a minute.
If you do that in Facebook, probably someone would comment asking you to STFU or something. Haha.

Besides, Twitter only allows us to write 140 characters or less so people can't go on and on and ONNNNnnnnnnnn as if they're writing an essay there. Haha.

Twitter also allows us to "retweet" (RT).

It's a new feature which we can just click on anyone's tweet and republish that same tweet to our twitter friends.
It's like quoting them without having to write their names because it's already written in the retweet.

I also read that some hospitals (maybe not in Malaysia anytime soon though) that they used Twitter in the surgery rooms so that they can keep the family of the patient constantly updated with the situation inside the room.

I think that is awesome because surgeries can take up to hours.
For family members, instead of waiting stupidly and nervously for the surgery to end, at least they get some peace of mind on exactly what's going on inside.

However, in contrast from Facebook, we can't comment on someone's tweet.
We have to reply with "@" followed by our friend's account name.
We can also include a few friends at a time in a same tweet.
This not only apply during replies but also for any tweet.

It's so convenient that instead of writing a few times at all our friend's wall, we just write it once.
Even Facebook had to copy this feature. Haha.

Twitter is very popular among the celebrities too.
So we can "follow" them (it's like becoming friends in Facebook) and read their tweets.

However, they may not necessarily follow you back.
So, if you keep your tweets private, they can't see your reply if you write something to them.
You can keep your tweets private or public.
Public means everyone (including the ones that does not follow you) can see your tweet.
If you have personal message for somebody, you can always send a direct tweet which works like an "inbox".

Even CNN have Twitter.

So, you can be updated with the latest news but with just brief sentences.
I stopped following them though because they tweet too OFTEN. Haha.
They were flooding my page!

Anyway, my point is,
go get a Twitter if you haven't!

With love,
