The Brain Challenge


Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important that we keep mentally alert. The saying; "If you don't use it, you will lose it" also applies to the brain.

The following is a very private way to gauge your current state of intelligence. Take the following test and determine if you are losing it or are still "with it."

After you answer the question, scroll down to the answer.

OK, relax, clear your mind and.... begin.

What do you put in a toaster?





The answer is "bread". If you said "toast," then give up now and go do something else. Try not to hurt yourself.

If you said, "bread," go to Question 2.

Say "silk" five times.

Now spell "silk".

What do cows drink?

Answer:

Cows drink water. If you said "milk", please do not attempt the next question. Your brain is obviously over stressed, and may even overheat. It may be that you need to content yourself with reading something more appropriate such as "Children's World."

If you said, "water" then proceed to Question 3.

If a red house is made from red bricks, and

a blue house is made from blue bricks, and

a pink house is made from pink bricks, and

a black house is made from black bricks,

what is a greenhouse made from?

Answer:

Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said "green bricks," what the devil are you still doing here reading these questions ??

If you said "glass", then go on to Question 4.

IF the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60 of a degree every minute,
then how many degrees will the hour hand move in one hour?



Answer:

One degree. If you said "360 degrees" or anything other than "one degree", you are to be congratulated on getting this far, but you are obviously out of your league. Turn your pencil in and exit the room.

Everyone else proceed to the final question.

Selecting Men's Cologne

When picking out a men's cologne, individual predilection is not the only rule to go by. Certainly, you should select a fragrance that delights you - and your special someone - but there are a few other matters you want to think about before you decide to buy it. Especially with the cost of men's fragrances reaching an all-time high.

As brought up before, individual taste should always take the lead; however, it's good to experiment at something new or different. What smells good on your best friend or your brother may not smell good on you.

The reason for this is because the ingredients in perfumes interact with your own body's scent to create something a bit different. It's likewise conceivable that you'll have an allergy to some chemical in the cologne.

That's why it's always a good idea to try out the cologne before you buy it. A note of caution though, Do not, as many men are prone to do, put one test fragrance on one wrist and a different one on the other. The scents can mix to produce something delightful - or awful. Either way, it would not give you a true scent to judge. So, be sure to try one scent at a time to be certain you get the full benefit of the test.



Colognes that men prefer are ones that have a woody, outdoor aroma. These include sandalwood or cedar wood bases with a combination of other ingredients, and are refreshing and energizing.

Other scents that men like are those that contain musk and are considered sexy. Men generally stay away from anything that they consider as 'flowery', or what they regard as a more womanly fragrance than a manly one.

The cardinal rule of wearing men's cologne is this: DO NOT SOAK YOURSELF.

You may enjoy the fragrance you have chosen and want to share it with the public, but the public may not have the same enthusiasm for it. People would rather that you come into and depart a room, leaving just a hint of fragrance in the air. Since some cologne tend to get more potent over a period of time, this can be hard to do with some colognes.

So, it is a good idea to use modest quantities of a cologne at first and work up to a degree of scent that is suitable. This is especially important in the business world. Keep in mind that a scent that's suited for a night out with your partner may not be appropriate for the boardroom. This may not be an awful thing, actually, since it gives you an excuse to purchase various fragrances to have on hand for different occasions.

While there are really no hard-and-fast regulations about applying cologne, it is most common to apply them on the neck, just behind the ears, in addition to the interior portions of the wrists and elbows.

A quick trick that many young men are utilising these days is to spray the cologne into the air and walk through the mist, letting it settle on their hair and shoulders.

This works well and helps distribute the fragrance more equally and subtlety - and subtlety, after all, is the name of the game when it comes to wearing men's cologne.

Pontianak Caught in Video?

It was about a month ago that this news/rumour/tabloid *whatever you wanna call it...* caught the locals' attention of Malacca, Malaysia. A 50-second *51-sec to be exact* video-clip of a pontianak was recorded with one of the witnessess' cellphone.

Ok, you might be wondering what the heck is a pontianak...

*Some kind of food? way off...
*Some kinky new term for a steamy, erotic escapade? I like the idea...creative, but no...
*A place situated in Indonesia? true in terms of its name, but still no...

*Gather up people, awesome facts... *

In Malaysia, the creature pontianak is believed to exist in real by certain individual and it is considered a legend by some. The origination of the word pontianak is unknown. In the Malay Language, anak means child but the word ponti is unknown.

A pontianak is often associated with long-haired female/woman who appears at night. Usually, she appears young and beautiful to attract the opposite sex *yet to hear about the lesbian version*, seen at the road side or under a tree. Sometimes, she is accompanied by a baby - single mums huh?

You would probably picture someone like this, right?

Smoking Hot~

Well true, probably before she transforms to this:

(Can't get better photo, they don't pose for you to snap)

KABOOYAH!!

Yea, in your face!!

Major turnoff, right?!

It is in general believe that pontianak is the soul of a lady died of child birth. Attacks would be based on claws, and defense probably on leaping or footwork. She is believed to feed on intestines and blood. Pontianak is believed to be attracted by child birth when there is plenty of blood flowing out from human body. In the olden days, measures *which I'm not too sure about too* are taken by the people to prevent the vampire from coming during child birth. She is believed to be scared of thorns.


The Legend

It is said that a woman who dies while she is with a child will rise again as a pontianak, a fearsome nocturnal undead being who will bring violent death on anyone she meets. Such a being resides inside the trunk of ancient trees, but will revert to her old human nature if an iron nail is driven into her neck. The nail remains in the vampire's neck until she dies and is buried with it. Should the nail ever be removed, she will once again become a pontianak and embark on a killing spree. Due to the frightening fighting prowess of one of these creatures, few are willing to attempt to tame one. For this reason, it is considered unlucky to strike a woman, especially a married woman.


Back to local story, the pontianak was sighted and recorded at a bridge of the Pulau Gadong road stretch. According to one of the witness, she appeared to be a damsel in distress, whimpering, asking for the sight of her missing child. *theory proved*

It would be all say and no solid evidence, so...*not sure how true is it though, you decide...* =)

V-Share: Happy Tree Friends


Once upon a time, in a land far far away, there lived many innocent and adorable little animals. They lived harmoniously, always playing blissfully with no worries in hand. The days were sunny, birds sang melodiously while the breeze spread the divine music to their ears...

*OK, what da hell?!*


Happy Tree Friends is a Flash cartoon series by Mondo Mini Shows, created by Rhode Montijo, Kenn Navarro and Aubrey Ankrum. This is not your ordinary cartoon stories, depicting a valuable moral behind every episode. As indicate in the official site, the show is "not recommended for small children".

WHAT?!! Cartoon not for children? Hentai? XXX Animal Cartoon?

~Eyes covered to ensure character's identification not exposed~


Ok, before you jump to those conclusions, no, Happy Tree Friends DO NOT promote sexuality, instead, they promote extreme *not enough impact* ...EXTREME violence, with every episode featuring blood, gore and violent deaths.

If you think the pictures in the toilet post is graphic, this is worse! but in animated approach :)

Here are some regular characters from Happy Tree Friends:

V-Tip: Using Toilet Bowls Safely

When nature calls (i.e. to take a piss or crap), most women and some men (fyi, most men usually stand when they piss) CLIMB onto the toilet bowls and SQUAT on them to avoid contact with unhygienic parts of the porcelain surface, especially in public toilets at your regular mamak stall or certain shopping complexes.

Notice the shoes marks...

BAD MOVE!!

I would advise not to practice it since these toilet bowls are not designed to support concentrated weight (whole body weight focused only on your two feet when you squat, instead of body weight distributed around the area of your bum when you sit - look up some physics books or check out this site - lying on a bed of nails: principles of pressure) *similar theory*.

NO, it's not that I am brainwashing you to place your bum directly on that filthy surface - NO WAY! An alternative is to rinse the mouth of the toilet bowl with water, and use sufficient toilet paper to cover it.

Here are photos of a real case scenario in which the toilet bowl broke when a lady was squatting on it.

*WARNING*
Photos may be disturbing and not suitable for minors, frail hearts, hemophobic, readers having meals right now, etc...

Another option, learn some martial arts... ;)
