Misheard Lyrics

Have you ever heard a song on the radio and was not really sure about the lyrics but believed that you got it right and went around singing the song as you "heard" it anyway.For example, one of my close friend had his own lyrics to that song from the movie Top Gun by Kenny Loggins called "Highway to the Danger Zone". His version had more to do with the river Ganges and a town near it.Heck,I use to just "gasak" the lyrics to my school anthem & church hymns at least till I turned 1512.
So, when I stumbled upon this site..I was laughing till I had a tummy ache.When it comes to mis heard lyrics,who the heck can figure out what Michael Jackson or Eddie Vedder is singing.Some classic examples below and click header for the jump.

One man come,

Misheard Lyrics:MJ's another Part of Me
This is a train,

Original Lyrics:
This is our planet,
you're one of us

Misheard Lyrics:MJ's Wanna Be Startin Something
Mama says Mama saw a monster's son.
or
A moose say I'm a son of a mongoose sa.
Original Lyrics:
Mama se mama sa mamacu sa

DaFont

I love fonts that are out of the ordinary and DaFont is a great site when it comes to looking for out of the ordinary.Recently I used these beautiful arabic fonts to create a nice personalized t-shirt design.

Should you sign the back of your credit card?

A neat tip via Lifehacker.com:

"Don't sign it. It's useless as a deterrent, as anyone who takes your card then has a sample of your signature which they can not only use on any charge slip, but on your checks as well. However, do not leave the white strip blank. In that space, write: 'Ask For Picture ID,' and be prepared to back that up someday when you're in a hurry and the clerk wants to see a driver's license or other ID's as well as the card. It makes the charge transaction a little longer, but a lot safer."

Arsenal's well deserved win

Arsenal needed the win more than MU and well deserved it.The absence of Henry was a good thing and I predicted that even before the game.I was one of those fans who doubted Adebayor and he proved me wrong this time.

"Arsenal played with movement, grace and a sense of togetherness epitomised by the manner in which Emmanuel Adebayor, the match-winner, tirelessly ran the line in attack. Gangly and awkward, Adebayor has flattered to deceive too many times but on this occasion the tall, loping striker seemed hell-bent on dismissing the myth that Arsenal without Thierry Henry are incapable of reaching their highest peaks."

Check out the MU fan giving the finger (click to enlarge image) after the goal and as the speech bubbles reflect...the mood can only be conveyed through Lionel Ritchie's "All Night Long"...unfortunately Suresh & TP couldn't sing that tune last night as Drogba did it again.

On other news our SM is back from Cambodia for a 2 weeks break and Aunty Nancy is recovering well.Please keep her in your prayers.

Montreal Gunman (pic)

Ok, must say that I was guilty of racial profiling and expected the gunman to be a white ,video game playing, gun freak,Marilyn Manson fan. I was right on all of the attributes except one.The dude was Indian.As for video games, I am having a blast picking up "Zombines" with my gravity gun in Half Life 2: Ep 1, but that doesn't turn one into a killer.
It's sad but true....quoting Mother Theresa...the worst kind of sickness is Loneliness.

Barcelona -Unicef

I hated the fact that Arsenal were beaten by Barcelona in the last Champions League finals but upon seeing them break from their 106 years of tradition of not having a sponsors logo on their shirt and opting to put the Unicef logo would make even me a fan.How many football clubs out there would do such a thing to trade millions for a chance to send out a humanitarian message?

And on other news, what do you know...the police do a U-turn on the discount.

Polis Trafik "kasi" Diskaun

I am not puzzled by the fact that the Ministry of Transport did not know that the Traffic Police Dept decided to give discounts on traffic offences. As you know, someone forgot to pay their "brain bill" again.
What I want to know is why the fine for failure to use a helmet is RM30 while compared to RM50-90 for an illegal u-turn.Let's use our "head" here?

Watch me beat Peter Cech!

So, after calling Makelele a slave boy,now Mourinho's club has come out saying Gallas wanted to score an own goal.Sweet,I just hope that this fuels Gallas to play even better against Chelsea.Arsenal need to start scoring again and my hopes of seeing Tevez in an Arsenal jersey was "hammered" completely.

WILDlife

Roy Horn, of the famous Siegfried and Roy magician duo, was attacked by a white tiger during his act on October 3, 2003.Everyone was shocked and wondered if the tiger went crazy, quoting Chris Rock , the tiger was crazy went it was doing tricks on the bicycle for snacks.When it attacked Roy, it was when it was most sane and behaved like a normal tiger.
I am trying my best not to be insensitive, and I am sure Steve Irwin was a great dad and husband who would be sorely missed.The truth though, I am sure he knew it came with the job and there's a reason why we call them WILDlife.

gSpace : Use that 2GB Gmail space

As you can see from the screenshot, now you can use this extension within your Firefox browser(1.5).Not entirely new as I was using the" gmail drive hack" before but the fact that you can upload .exe and .dll files make this a great way for you to store your installers etc etc.Now, I can listen to my mp3 in a remote computer as I click "play" on my gmail account and the embedded player in gmail will play the song.

This extension allows you to use your Gmail Space (2 GB) for file storage. It acts as a remote machine. You can transfer files between your hard drive and gmail. This is similar to 'Gmail Drive' on windows platform. Your gmail account looks like a FTP host and you can upload and download your files. After you install, you get an option called 'GSpace' in your 'tools' menu clicking on which opens the window for transfer of folders/files.

Child Labour

One of the most depressing thing I've witnessed in India was it's child workers.While they should be playing or studying, these kids are made to toil all day.While having tea with Jake & Jesse, a paper cutting on the stall about child workers breaking granite stones reminded me of that image again.Till today it kinda haunts me and now that I have a child,I realise even more what grave injustice this is and what these kids are deprived off.

Approximately fifteen million children work as bonded laborers in India. Most were put into bondage in exchange for comparatively small sums of money: two thousand rupees-equal to about RM180-is the average amount "loaned" in exchange for a child's labor. To India's vast numbers of extremely poor, however, this money can be, literally, a life-saver. With scant alternative sources of credit available-few rural banks, cooperative credit schemes or government loans-the poor are forced to turn to the local moneylender, who extracts the only collateral available: the promise of their labor or the labor of their children.

Earlier this month, India banned children under the age of 14 from working as domestic servants or in hotels, tea shops, restaurants and resorts. Government data shows there are more than 11 million under-14 child labourers.Though, I feel this would not have any effect in the rural areas and probably will not put a permanent stop to child labour.We are talking about kids who are 6 and 7 years old here.

For example here's how they "teach" the kids to roll "beedi" a type of Indian cigar.

The pace is rapid, with practiced children rolling and tying each beedi cigarette in a matter of seconds. Most of the older children-those over ten-roll 1,500 to 2,000 beedies each day. In order to encourage speed, employers keep close vigil over the child workers, scolding them or hitting them if they slow down. Some children have been forced to work with a matchbox tucked between their chin and their neck; in order to hold the box in place, they must keep their head down and focused on the work. If the matchbox falls, the employer knows the child has looked away and will punish her or him.

Panjaran, a ten-year-old boy pledged at the age of six for a 500 rupee advance, told Human Rights Watch:

The agent would beat me with a stick if I was not there on time, he beat me if I could not roll 1,500 beedies a day, and he beat me if I was tired. I had to roll eight beedies a minute. If I failed he would beat me. If I looked around, he beat me. He made me put a matchbox under my chin; if it fell, he would beat me.
