Athanasia and Death

Am I not surprised by this. China actually has tainted biscuits and eggs.

It isn’t just milk, now melamine was found in eggs and confections like biscuits. Heck, biscuits I can understand, because maybe some unscrupulous jerk laced them with melamine, but God forbid, eggs?

Well, the Chinese embassy had an explanation: animal feeds. The chickens were fed with melamine-laced chicken feed. Wonder, wonder. The chickens now are immune to melamine?

Let’s update the list, shall we?

FAMOUS CHINA-MADE PRODUCTS

  • Toys (especially the ones from Mattel)
  • Milk
  • Biscuits
  • Eggs

Jocjoc Bolante, the so-beleaguered ex-official in the US now being deported to RP and facing a possible genie-like summonings to the Senate for probing, is like a very juicy material for the presidential aspirants.

This is a biggie for them. Bolante is a gold mine in popularity ratings. The press will eat up everything Bolante will say or do, and whoever takes Bolante down and makes him sing better than that Bugoy in the erstwhile PDA show will have a mega-hit status in RP. Come on, the naive only doesn’t know that Bolante could be possibly linked to GMA, and if Villar, Lacson or Legarda scores a hit or two, and we all know they are all so desperate, one will hit the jackpot.

And the corrupt will also take over the corrupt. Oh well, Filipinos also love to say “ang magnanakaw ay galit sa kapwa magnanakaw”.

Rob Simpson is a genius. I mean, with his paperback “What We Could Have Done With the Money: 50 Ways to Spend the Trillion Dollars We’ve Spent on Iraq” I could really see where US could have gone differently with spending and borrowing their own money.

That’s $1,000,000,000,000.00 for you. US sure knows how to pimp a war, and pimp they did. They hated Saddam Hussein for having a mustache that Bush never had. They turned Baghdad to a surface reminscent of the moon. And boy did they totally forget about Osama, that 9/11 bastard.

Most of Simpson’s analysis are good. I mean, here.

$1 trillion could …
… pave the entire U.S. interstate highway system with gold, 23.5-karat gold leaf.
… buy every person on the planet an iPod.
… give every high school student in the United States a free college education.
… pay off every American’s credit card.
… buy a Buick for every senior citizen still driving in the United States.
… double the 663,000 cops on the beat in the entire US police workforce for 32 years.
… buy 16.6 million Habitat for Humanity houses, enough for 43 million Americans.
… pay for 1.9 million additional teachers for America’s classrooms.
… retrain 4 million workers a year or lay a foundation for paying Social Security benefits in 65 years to every child born in the United States, beginning today.
… pay for the Bush administration’s financial bailout plan, with $300 billion as spare change.

He even made a website to make us realize his point. It can be found here:

I actually tried out his web game of spending 1 trillion dollars, and for once I can’t stay on this game for too long, it just makes me too bummed out to continue. I spent money on so many vices yet I still had $785,345,231,345 to spare. Scheisse.

There was this one Guitar Hero commercial I saw last week that made me laugh out loud. Really.

There’s Alex Rodriguez and Michael Phelps on the guitars, Tonk Hawk with a set of drums, and Kobe Bryant with a microphone. They wore matching pink polos with few undergarments, then they did a parody of that Tom Cruise’s “Risky Business” lip-synching scene complete with the same livingroom set and the same song. Wow. Activision sure is pulling out all the cards
