Calculator as a Reward 

A teenager, Luke Bridges, stopped an ATM scam by tearing off a fake fascia and then ran from the very people who installed the fascia nearby. He ran home and called the police.

The bank, worth £54.9 billion, said they would reward Bridges. Yeah, he got rewarded. He was given a plastic calculator.


Good grief! A shopkeeper, Salvatore Caminito, in Fareham, England is quitting his business because people are harassing him by whistling. Caminito is known for refusing service to customers if they whistle. Caminito just simply cannot stand whistling.

Word has spread around to other people about Caminito's aversion to whistling. So, people have stopped by his shop, only to whistle the heck outta him. Caminito claims that there's a conspiracy against him and it's affecting his health.


"[This is] the most corrupt Congress in the history of the country."
-Sen. Harry Reid, on the Delay and Frist scandals, on "Fox News Sunday"

Hunny! Do tell!

Democrats and Republicans, including Reid, are asking for congressional investigations on Bush's decision to allow "domestic eavesdropping", especially for the NSA.

Here are some quotes by some of the senators:

"The president has, I think, made up a law that we never passed."
-Sen. Russell Feingold, D-Wis.

"They talk about constitutional authority. There are limits as to what the president can do."
-Sen. Arlen Spector, R-Pa. (Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee)

"The president can't pass the buck on this one."
"He's commander in chief. But commander in chief does not trump the Bill of Rights."
-Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev.

Bush defends his decision. As usual, Cheney and Rice defend Bush's decision. So, is Gonzales.

Anyways, like I said, Harry, do tell!


Not too long ago, I blogged about the European investigator on the CIA and black sites. Well, Europe has approved for investigations on their own soil to find evidence to back up those allegations. If so, there could be bad blood between the US and Europe. Not only that but Poland and Romania could face embarrassment, due to the rumors that they have been holding detainees. If there are any evidence against Poland and Romania, they could lose their EU votes.

Not only that, there is another allegation that the US had a secret prison, "Dark Prison", in Afghanistan, recently as of last year, according to a human rights group.

Do I smell a big-ass Bush investigation/conference bigger than Oliver North and the Iran-Contra coming up?


Saw Closer. It was alright. Basically, it's about 4 people. Guy #1 liked Gal #1. However, Guy #1 has Gal #2. Gal #2 knows about Gal #1. Gal #1 meets and marries Guy #2. Guy #1 and Gal #1 have an affair. In retaliation, Guy #2 screws Gal #2. Gal #1 and Guy #2 get back together. Guy #1 and Gal #2 get back together briefly and break up. Ta-da!

Saw Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Watched about 20 minutes of it and had to stop it. BORING!

Saw Fantastic Four. Grool movie! I think this is the first time that Stan Lee had some lines. In other Marvel movies, Stan Lee just usually appear on the screen for mere seconds.

Was watching but didn't get to finish 4 Weddings & a Funeral. Will try to finish that up this week.


Well, over the weekend, I made tamales. It was my first time ever to make it. My grandmother usually made them over the holidays. But then, she passed away. My mother was a good cook but she had no time for making tamales. So, that tradition died with my grandmother.

So, I told myself that I should revive that tradition. So, I looked for recipes and came across one that I liked.

Whoo. Making tamales took me 2 days. The first day was for preparing the meat. The second day was for the tamale making and cooking. This was truly an "hand-on" experience. You gotta be willing to get your hands dirty if you wanna make tamales.

The first batch came out sorta doughy, although it was still good. The second batch was still a bit doughy but WAY BETTER than the first batch. I shall improve over time.

So, now I've got lots of doughy tamales to last me through the holidays.
