A Chinaman goes to Woolworth's in Australia .
He finds cat food at special prices. He picks a dozen cans of cat food and goes to check out.
The Manager gets suspicious. He thinks that this guy might not have a cat and will probably feed cat food to his kids.
He asks the Chinaman to show him his cat before he could let him have cat food.
The Chinaman goes home and returns with a cat and gets to buy the cat
Next week the Chinaman finds dog food at special prices. He picks a dozen cans of dog food and goes to check out.
The Manager again gets suspicious. He thinks that this guy may have a cat but he cannot have a dog and he will probably feed dog food to his kids.
He asks the Chinaman to bring and show him the dog before he can let him have dog food.
The Chinaman goes home and returns with a dog. He gets to buy the dog food.
The following week the Chinaman comes to Woolworth's with a bag.
He asks the manager to put his hand in the bag.
The Manager puts his hand in the bag, feels some thing slimy and immediately pulls it out.
He shouts at the Chinaman, "What the hell !
This is shit, you Idiot !"
The Chinaman calmly replies, "Yes, now
may I buy some toilet paper?"

There is another version of the "Kidnapping" scam that went viral some 5 ~ 10 years ago. Now, these conmen (Cantonese speaking) are targeting old uncles, old aunties, grandpas and grandmas. Don't laugh, these guys are really professional and there are already 60 cases reported in IPD Bricksfield alone. How many more went unreported???
OK, many years back, they were targeting parents/grandparents of young primary/kindergarten children. That they have kidnapped them and demand a ransom. A friend fell for it.
Then, came World Cup Football season, and they changed modus operandi to owing money to football bookies. This time, they graduated to capturing young adults. That your child (even girls) had lost few tens of thousand.
That they are holding your child and bashing him/her up now because the debt is not paid. Audio sound in the background of somebody being tortured and crying out for help and that he is bleeding from the head wounds, etc. and requiring medical attention or he will die, bleeding cannot stop..............
So, as a parent, your world started crashing and you won't think rationally. My wife received one such call and she was going to take out money(CASH) to pay these crooks. Why? Because that was HER CHILD. Luckily, she managed to call me and I told her it is a SCAM, but she won't accept it, insisting that the voice crying for help was my son.
Told her to hold on until I come home to take the next call. They never call back. On hindsight, the crooks did not call back, maybe it was because my wife told them that my son was not in the country.(so how did they catch him?)
Then, my son does not fancy football and he never gambles, so how can owe the bookies? Call you child immediately to confirm. Case closed.
Crooks ran out of primary school children and football gamblers. Now says your children stood GUARANTOR for friend's Ah Long LOAN. Same scenario, caught your child and now bashing until head BLEEDING NON STOP and BLOODY.
Background torture, crying out for help and begging. Same amount ten, twenty or thirty thousand ringgit. Anything more, scam overpriced and won't work. Said you just pay back the capital, no need interest. Even offered to pay you back when the friend is caught, hahahah.
Random call to house phones (locality can be controlled) so that they can collect your CASH the moment you withdraw from your bank. They keep on talking and won't allow you to put down the phone, even to the extent of calling your handphone so that you cannot call you child. Insisted to keep in contact with you all the way to the bank.
They asked which bank that you are going and even can tell you where to drop off the money, like in film show. You won't be facing them. In my friend's case, they asked him to drop off at the empty phone "booth" opposite the bank. Only consolation is that I should tell the son that his papa really loves him despite all his dad's constant nagging.
NOW, DO THIS AND KEEP THE INFORMATION ETCHED IN YOUR MIND.
- NEVER BLURT OUT ANY INFORMATION,
- ASK THEM WHO THEY HAVE CAUGHT.
- YOU DON'T HAVE A HAND PHONE OTHERWISE WHY SHOULD THERE BE A HOUSE PHONE. SAYS YOU DON'T HAVE CASH AND NEEDS TO ASK FROM SPOUSE, ETC. INTENTION IS TO MAKE THEM CALL BACK WITHOUT ANTAGONIZING THEM.
- CALL YOUR CHILD IMMEDIATELY TO CONFIRM THEIR SAFETY.
- MAKE POLICE REPORT,
- CALL BUKIT AMAN HOTLINE 03-2115 9999

All kinds of products can not be found now in our shops! Their range is increasing every year, but the quality is often still leaves much to be desired. What products can be considered the most dangerous, and what - most useful for your health? How to avoid mistakes and to choose not only tasty but also qualitative?
Try to understand in this together. 10 of the most harmful products that are worth is as little as possible or abandon them altogether In order not to risk the health, nutritionists recommend to refuse products that contain large amounts of artificial food additives, sugar, salt, fat, and those that are prepared using techniques of smoking, grilling or frying. More after the break...
01. Refined Sugar
Refined sugar, which is derived from beet and cane sugar, not for nothing is considered one of the most harmful products: it has no vitamins or minerals, or dietary fiber, and at the same time it contains a lot of calories. Sugar triggers the development of a whole bunch of diseases of the endocrine (diabetes, obesity), cardiovascular (ischemic heart disease, atherosclerosis), gastro-intestinal, respiratory, kidney, and, of course, teeth - from elementary to decay periodontitis and reduces resistance to various to infection.
A healthy adult requires only 5 grams of salt per day. We tend to eat much more - 10-15 grams of salt! However, excessive consumption of it causes the development of cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, accumulation of toxins and, accordingly, the appearance of malignant tumors. The elderly, and those who suffer from heart disease and kidney disease, should eat no more than 2 grams of salt a day, but better not to salt the food.
In sausages, frankfurters, sausages lot of fat, including the so-called hidden, artificial food additives and salt. Their composition also includes vegetable rice or soy derivatives, a significant number of which (up to 85%!) Are grown now using the technology of genetic engineering. Smoked contain a large number of carcinogens. A taste of sausages, frankfurters and sausages attached ... MSG, which some scientists believe, causes drug addiction and the development of many diseases. In addition, if there are products constantly, there is a risk of substantially disrupt the nervous system.
Margarine - this is not an analogue of butter, as many believe. This product - the real surrogate: it contains hydrogenated, synthetic fats and plenty of "flavored" with preservatives, emulsifiers and dyes. Contained trans fats in margarine are high in calories, are toxic and tend to accumulate in the body. I should add that this dangerous product is used in many kinds of baking: biscuits, cakes, biscuits, etc., which are sold in stores.
Mayonnaise contains a large amount of fat, including saturated, and carbohydrate, and sodium, vinegar and all sorts of artificial additives - flavoring and coloring alternatives. In some cases, this product can be stored for six months or more - you can imagine how dangerous to health may be such a "delicacy"! Diseases of the heart and blood vessels, stomach and intestines, metabolism and obesity - this is not a complete list of side effects, which makes a habit of eating mayonnaise flavor.
06. Bouillon cubes, noodles and instant soups
This "fast food" consists of a solid chemistry in the bouillon cubes, soups includes noodles and food additives - flavor enhancers (including MSG), acidity regulators, dyes and a large amount of salt. You are really fast ... can "put" with their help your liver, kidneys and at the same time, because these products contain and secrete many toxic substances, especially if you fill them with boiling water directly into a plastic bag.
07. Fast food (hamburgers, cheeseburgers, French fries, chips, etc.)
On the dangers of fast food a lot said and written. These products contain a large amount of fat, including synthetic, salt, artificial additives, carcinogens and cause serious diseases such as atherosclerosis, cerebral infarction, cancer, arthritis, hormonal imbalance, infertility, obesity, as well as irreversible changes in the immune system . Another minus - addictive, because of time fast-food starts cause in children and adults dependence similar to the drug.
The habit of constantly replacing fresh organic foods canned anything good to our health promises. After so many favorite delicacies at the glass and tin cans contain many harmful substances, preservatives, flavor enhancers, fragrances, dyes, etc., a large amount of salt and sugar. During processing, the products of their structure and taste vary considerably, lost many nutrients, including some vitamins. And if the production technology is broken, canned food can cause poisoning, and quite heavy.
09. Carbonated beverages
The composition of Coke, Pepsi and various soft drinks and other "fast utoliteley thirst" is a lot of sugar, artificial additives (preservatives, acidulants, sweeteners, flavoring agents, emulsifiers, food dyes), and various acids, soda, and carcinogens. Some drinks contain caffeine, extract of coca leaves, and other unsafe stimulants. Sufficiently harmful and gas, which is an irritant to the gastric mucosa.
On the dangers of alc0h0l know everything, but still use it every year is increasing. Alc0h0l is the third after cardiovascular disease and cancer cause of mortality, it significantly increases the risk of injuries, dozens of times - the probability of committing suicide, in addition, in a state of intoxication occurs about half the murders. Alc0h0l has an increased load on the various organs and body systems: kidneys, liver (which can bring to cirrhosis), cardiovascular system, gastrointestinal tract (leading to gastritis, peptic ulcer disease) and others.

As I was lying in bed pondering the problems of the world, I rapidly realized that I don't really give a hoot about exercising.
1. If walking/cycling is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
2. A whale swims all day, eats only fish, drinks water, and is big and fat.
3. A rabbit runs and hops around all day and only lives 15 years.
4. A tortoise doesn't run and does nothing, yet it lives for 450 years.
And you tell me to exercise?
I'll opt for tortoise life any time!

Yes, a brilliant analogy of Tony's business model.
"Spare a thought for Uncle Tony chief Executive of 'Air A... "
Arriving in a hotel in KL Sentral he went to the bar and asked for a pint of drought Guinness.
The barman nodded and said, "That will be one Ringgit please, Uncle Tony."
Somewhat taken aback, Uncle Tony replied, "That's very cheap," and handed over his money.
"Well, we try to stay ahead of the competition", said the barman. "And we are serving free pints every Wednesday evening from 6 until 8.
We have the cheapest draught in Asia "
"That is remarkable value" Uncle Tony comments
"I see you don't seem to have a glass, so you'll probably need one of ours. That will be 3 Ringgit please."
Uncle Tony scowled, but paid up. He took his drink and walked towards a seat.
"Ah, you want to sit down?" said the barman. "That'll be an extra 2 Ringgit
You could have pre-book the seat, and it would have only cost you a Ringgit"
"I think you may to be too big for the seat sir, can I ask you to sit in this frame please"
Uncle Tony attempts to sit down but the frame is too small and when he can't squeeze in he complains
"Nobody would fit in that little frame".
"I'm afraid if you can't fit in the frame you'll have to pay an extra surcharge of RM 4 for your seat sir"
Tony swore to himself, but paid up.
"I see that you have brought your laptop with you" added the barman.
"And since that wasn't pre-booked either, that will be another 3 Ringgit"
Uncle Tony was so annoyed that he walked back to the bar, slammed his drink on the counter, and yelled,
"This is ridiculous, I want to speak to the manager".
"Ah, I see you want to use the counter," says the barman, "that will be 2 Ringgit please."
Uncle's face was red with rage.
"Do you know who I am?"
"Of course I do
"I've had enough, What sort of Hotel is this? I come in for a quiet drink and you treat me like this. I insist on speaking to a manager!"
"Here is his E mail address, or if you wish, you can contact him between 9 and 9.10 every morning, Monday to Tuesday at this free phone number.
Calls are free, until they are answered, then there is a talking charge of only 10 sen per second provided you use Tune Talk using other mobile carriers would incur our normal charges of 30 Sen per second
"I will never use this bar again"
"OK Uncle , but remember, we are the only bar in Asia selling pints for one Ringgit...
so that Now everyone can drink "

This is not good news for entomophobia sufferers. A former park ranger traveling in New Zealand has stumbled across the world's largest insect, a Weta Bug, with a wing span of seven inches and the weight of three mice.
"Three of us walked the trails of this small island for two nights scanning the vegetation for a giant weta," said Mark Moffett, 55. "We spent many hours with no luck finding any at all, before we saw her up in a tree. The giant Weta is the largest insect in the world, and this is the biggest one ever found."
Most people would have recoiled at such a find--but Moffettt held the giant insect in the palm of his hand and even fed it a carrot.
"She enjoyed the carrot so much she seemed to ignore the fact she was resting on our hands and carried on munching away," Moffett said. "She would have finished the carrot very quickly, but this is an extremely endangered species and we didn't want to risk indigestion. After she had chewed a little I took this picture and we put her right back where we found her."You can watch a video of a smaller, but still huge, Weta Bug in action here. And yes, the man in the video actually eats one of the bugs (and no, bug preservationists need not be alarmed--the smaller Weta is not endangered):
The Weta Bug goes back 180 million years, predating the dinosaurs, but was thought to be extinct after European explorers had unwittingly brought rats with them to New Zealand's Little Barrier island.

Stealthy cellphone software stirs outcry
SAN FRANCISCO: Technology bloggers are asking if our cellphones are spying on us after a security researcher said a piece of software hidden on millions of phones was recording virtually everything people do with them.
Amid a broad outcry, Sen. Al Franken is calling for an investigation. A class-action lawsuit has been filed against the software's maker, Carrier IQ Inc. of Mountain View, California
The software, which Carrier IQ says is used on some 150 million mobile devices, appears relatively innocuous. It does watch what owners of Sprint Nextel Corp. and AT&T Inc. smartphones do with them, including what people type and the numbers they dial. But it doesn't seem to transmit every keystroke to the company. Instead, it kicks into action when there's a problem, like a call that doesn't go through, and it lets the phone company know.
"It is software that is developed in partnership with carriers with the intent to improve network performance. As far as we can tell, it meets this description in execution," said Tim Wyatt, principal engineer at Lookout, a cellphone security company.
Carrier IQ says the data its software gathers is stored by the phone companies or at Carrier IQ's facilities. It doesn't sell the data to third parties. Phone companies, of course, already are custodians of a wealth of private information, including whom you call, where you surf and what your text messages say.
The brouhaha started a few weeks ago, when a programmer named Trevor Eckhart documented Carrier IQ's workings with videos on his blog. The software company threatened him with a lawsuit if he didn't take the information down. The Electronic Frontier Foundation took on Eckhart's case, and the company backed down.
Eckhart posted another video this week, showing Carrier IQ's software logging keystrokes on an HTC EVO 3D from Sprint.
A central privacy worry is what kind of data Carrier IQ is retaining.
Andrew Coward, a Carrier IQ vice president, said the software doesn't record every keystroke or send information about all of them back to the company. The only keystrokes it cares about are specific administrative commands, including those instructing the software to phone "home." The rest it discards, Coward said.
"We never expected to need the content of SMS messages, so we didn't code for it," Coward told The Associated Press in an interview.
Apple Inc. has said it has stopped supporting Carrier IQ in most of its products. Separately, the company came under fire last year over location-tracking features of the iPhone and made a software change to keep data on users' movements for less time.
For now, there's no easy way to uninstall the Carrier IQ software without unsanctioned third-party software. Coward said it is "too early to tell" whether the company will make any substantial changes to the software because of the uproar. -- AP
