men and their bikes

am still tempted to learn and get a motorcycle license. especially after i read the article that says motorbike rider has better focus and mental alertness.   that is what the japan research says.

and am sure it makes the rider looks way cooler … equivalent of the prince in white horse of the fairy tale.

dell adamo

obviously borrowing some ideas from apple.  is thin, is slick. does not have any stickers or other branding on it.  did i mention it has a unibody casing. edge to edge glass cover and a hidden web cam under that.

not to mention expensive (US$1999) and i think low powered (1.2GHz).

but nevertheless i think it looks like one of the better dell computers.  wont mind company swapping my current dell for this.

40, Banker

Height: 1.8m

Weight: 75kg

Exercise regimen: I started exercising regularly again about 18 months ago. I spend close to 10 hours a week working out. Owing to my busy schedule, I usually work out in the office gym at lunchtime. I do free weights and run on the treadmill. Every two to four weeks, I change the exercise to add variety to my workout and to work on different muscles. I run a total of 30km a week, both indoors and outdoors. For leisure, I swim or play tennis.

Diet: I do not take fast food or sugared drinks anymore. I choose steamed food over oily hawker fare. And instead of having beer, I now drink wine. I also drink lots of water and three to four glasses of fresh fruit juice every day.

the perfect guy … rest in peace

i do not know him and only read about his news today.  must say the fact that he was so good looking caught my attention.  but his achievements according to the papers include:

  • 27 years old
  • water polo player and swimmer in school
  • diver
  • Mr Continents in 2001
  • Mr Singapore in 2001
  • officer in SAF (near top of the class)
  • medical doctor
  • top 10 Warcraft play in Singapore
  • top 100 Warcraft player in the world

am sure there will be some theories about his lifestyle and death.  his body was found in melbourne after he disappeared and left Singapore a few months ago.  he seem too perfect to be true.

but life is fragile. RIP Cpt (Dr) Allan Ooi

TOKYO – RIDING motorcycles helps keep drivers young by invigorating their brains, the scientist behind popular ‘Brain Training’ computer software said on Wednesday, citing a new scientific study.’The driver’s brain gets activated by riding motorbikes’ in part because it requires heightened alertness, Mr Ryuta Kawashima said after his research team and Yamaha Motor conducted a string of experiments involving middle-aged men.

……

‘Mental care is a very big issue in modern society,’ said Mr Kawashima. ‘I think we made an interesting stir here as data showed you can improve your mental condition simply by using motorbikes to commute.’ — AFP

Northwest Airlines selling Penis on its snack menu

ATLANTA – A CNN anchorwoman has caused controversy in the United States after a live broadcast announced that an airline was now selling ‘penis’ on its flights.Zain Verjee was supposed to be reporting that Northwest Airlines had begun selling peanuts on flights when she said the word ‘penis’ three times rather than ‘peanuts’.

‘Northwest began serving penis this month as its merger partner Atlanta-based Delta airlines has done for years,’ Ms Verjee is reported to have said in a news.com.au article.

A number of versions of her faux pas have been uploaded the video sharing website YouTube and become an internet sensation with more than 700,000 views on Wednesday.

Pundits have mused that the caption running across the bottom of the screen may have led to the mistake – it read ‘Nut on Northwest flights’.

Male lizards fake gender

MELBOURNE – YOUNG male lizards in South Africa imitate females to fool aggressive older males into leaving them alone, in an example of transvestism in the natural world, researchers have found.

The lizards not only avoid fights but gain access to females under the nose of their more macho rivals, the South African and Australian researchers discovered.

They found that young male Augrabies flat lizards delayed displaying the extravagant coloration of sexually-mature males until they were able to defend themselves adequately.

‘Experienced males will chase and bite their young rivals,’ said associate professor Martin Whiting of Johannesburg’s University of the Witwatersrand.

‘By delaying the onset of colour to a more convenient period, these males, termed she-males, are making the best of a bad situation.’ Australian National University associate professor Scott Keogh said opting to become transvestites for a period offered young males a dual advantage.

‘They can avoid potentially dangerous bouts with dominant males and still have access to normally inaccessible females,’ he said.

But, as with large hands and an Adam’s apple in the human world, there is a flaw in the lizards’ transvestite transformation.

Dominant males can detect transvestite’s male hormones with their sensitive tongues, even if they are taken in by their female appearance.

University of Sydney researcher Jonathan Webb said this meant the she-males needed to be nimble to avoid advances from dominant males smitten by their fake female allure. ‘Males are fooled by looks, but not by scent,’ he said.

‘She-males are able to maintain this deception by staying one step ahead of a prying male, and thereby avoiding a nosey tongue that might give the game away.’ The research was published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society. — AFP
