Anonymous Diary Blog / Re: Growing a beard (steps)

a beard in the hand...

certainly isn't a bird, or an airplane, or superman.

(too bad this beard advice isn't for me.   i'm a she.)

but keep on.  who knows what grows on the chin can also grow on the heads of some?


abaw gid.  mga bogalbogalon gyod ning barkadang bai hubs, bai tigs, ug aspo dinhi da.  hapit ko malipat ug post.  abi nakog na-out of topic kog ahat.  moral lesson:  ayaw pailad ug baki nga nagpakaaron ingnon nga prinsipe ug ayaw kalipat ug bantay sa mga anak.  conclusion:  frog, frog, like fog, fog, is everywhere, over mountain, hill and dale.


whew!  kaparat.  pedophilia ang gawas.  lisod ni kay singapore pa gyod nahitabo. 

Robotics & Wireless Tech / Re: Can Cellphone Cause Brain Cancer
« on: May 24, 2010, 01:20:18 PM »
better to be safe than sorry, as they say. 

one thing wrong with the study's methodology, as reported, was that there was an increase in the widespread use of cellphones while the study was being undertaken.  it also included the analog cell phones common in the 1990s as against the current digital ones that are more common now, which have less radiations.  these changed the definitions of the study. 

also, the latency period of glioma, a type of brain cancer, is 25 years, a period longer than the current widespread use of cellphones. 

what is advised though is the use of hands-free phones instead because what is worrisome is the fact that scientists cannot categorically conclude either way--- that cell phone use may or may not cause brain cancer. 

(note:  i read these additional details from yahoo! news with great interest because just now i am trying to come up with good reasons on why our 8-year-old girl shouldn't have a cell phone.)


mine is that there's no such message as of the moment nor did i notice it before.  it's just that there are times when i couldn't get at tb throughout most of the day. 

why man pod tuod nga nidaghan ang squatters sa tagbilaran?  i heard this is one mayor who encourages this unwittingly, kay lagi tabangan ang mga anak ug palit ug school uniforms ug bags inig abli sa schoolyear.  apan di maapas ang pagtabang sa employment sa mga ginikanan. 

why man pod tuod nga nidaghan ang krimen sa siyudad?

lisod baya tuod ning mayor nga burokinto.

nidaog, fine.  why man tuod nga nidaog?  luyang ra ba kaha ang kontra o maayo ang pagkapili ni dan lim sa iyang bise?

the banding of the three former mayors and the cases the mayor is facing have certainly sent a message.  tagbilaran may not really be in good hands.  all we can do is hope for the best now.

c'mon, gintonic.  be a sport at least if you cannot be a benevolent winner.  you shouted (i.e. posted) yourself hoarse during the campaign period.  as you came out a winner (a proxy to your candidate), let the losers lick their wounds.  you know how the elections were won.  vox populi?  let's face it, it was vox pecunia, exempting no one.  winners can't be too smug then.  let christchurch's name be.  for all we know, he/she likes this place in new zealand.  gintonic is in bars anyway.  otherwise,

trabaho lang nga gakinahanglan ug pila ka adlaw nga concentration, bai hubs.  pamugas ginagmay aron di ko tantong dependent sa shuwa.  nanghinaot pod nga makagunit ug the name of the rose o makakapyot ba hinoon sa foucault's pendulum. :D

one more experience replicated elsewhere, in our milieu.  that's why it pays to follow the advice of sam goldwyn (of metro-goldwyn-mayer pictures of old) who reportedly told albert einstein something like:  'i have my own theory of relativity.  i do not hire them.'

she may shoot her foot at times when she opens her mouth, but yes, she just might be an example of a weakness turning into strength, or turning either way.  at the very least, we could listen to her speak her piece about her brother's administration.  that would be interesting.

let me guess. 

ceo ni sija ug usa ka multinational company.  unja namuring the night before kay gitunolan man intawon ug potential sub-contractor nga usa sa mga bidders nga mo-construct sa usa sa mga massive nga haligi sa cebu-bohol bridge. 

sa ijang kahubog, wa na nija namatikdi nga ang ijang nasul-ob the morning after ang sinina diay sa buring.  karon, giabog sija sa buring kay wa man kahatag ug tip.  unsaon, wa man sijay cash kay puro man credit cards ang naa sa ijang pitaka.  da, tua, naghagok na lang sija sa bangketa. 

postscript:  he even missed out voting for the ladlad partylist.

thanks for the compliment, but i have to point out that the phrase “vivid spirit” is clumsy and infelicitous.  distinct and intensely bright objects can be vivid; accounts, memories and imagination can be vivid; but “spirit” cannot be vivid.  choice of words is like choice of medication; choose the wrong word and you end up mangling your statement.  choose the wrong medication and you prove yourself and incompetent doctor.

so the “context of dreaming never was mitigated” by your posts.  (and thus you changed the topic rather than admit to something that might have changed your mind?)  my mistake.  i couldn’t help but comment on your earlier post claiming hubag’s disinclination to reason because he’d rather dwell on fantasy (quoted thus:  â€œhubag talks about his inability to reason or his disinclination in that, rather, defends the notion of dreams and dreaming…”).  such grand claims about other people’s opinions merit a few minutes’ attention of idiots such as i.    

“Quite existentialist.  This has the aura of Darwinian theory of evolution; the weak must make room for the strong.”

i am quoting from your earlier post your exact words on existentialism and evolution.  no doubt there are points of convergence between the two, but the idea of the weak making room for the strong doesn’t have anything existentialist about it at all.  for instance, the concept of “engaged freedom” which serves as one of the cornerstones of existentialist thought cannot, by any stretch of imagination―much less of reason―coalesce (your term) with the darwinian concept of “survival of the fittest”.

you seem to know your evolutionary theory, but perhaps you should read more existentialist literature.  i won’t suggest titles, since you can easily google them yourself.

after mastering your existentialism, you will probably find out that you don’t have to choose to be discerning, as you still apparently do now.

love ya, my dearest boy.  

i care, so please don’t imbibe too much of your favorite pinot noir while you copy from your medical books (or google) for this discerned sharing of yours.  the words may tumble out from the pages and come out as incomplete sentences, as your existential treatise on hemorrhoids and syphilis shows.  it doesn’t matter, of course.  what is important is you can start practicing your rx on yourself.  don’t worry, dearest of all dears, napoleon had hemorrhoids, nietzsche had syphilis.

which reminds me, you must also try lambanog from our country’s north.  the nearest that i can compare it to is the greek ouzo (which, to my husband’s dismay, i once half-filled a bottle with star anise to make ‘anisado wine’ for my tocino; it turned out great).  i tried lambanog once, long ago, and felt as if my ears fell off.  nothing can be more vivid a spirit worth imbibing than this one.      

keep on with your youthful existentialist spirit and your elementary understanding of existentialism, dearest, for as long as it keeps afloat your sense of self,

glad to be back after a day or so, and to find myself flattered by my inclusion in your projects, as a building inspector to boot.

i'll come in a snowmobile, amid the sound of trumpets and drums, and being the nihilist that i am, i hope to decapitate anybody's magnum opus that's as unstable as its creator.
