ABC News: Al Gore Will Not Only Run, but He Can and Will Win in 08

Sorry for being a tad bit political. Its so not like me to be this interested in presidential issues. I suppose the reason why I’m just a little more involved is because I SEE what a mess the current president has made and I listen to so many Americans affected and how they are still passionate about the future of this country. People here have so much substance and passion for their country’s future that I can’t help myself but feel drawn to it too! Wish I can get a chance to vote!!

BREITBART.COM – Soldier Gets 100 Years for Rape, Killing

BREITBART.COM – Soldier Gets 100 Years for Rape, Killing

I wonder why this story didn’t make it to the mainstream media yesterday. Makes me wonder what else goes on there that the public does not see.
Psychologist Charles Figley testified that Cortez and the other soldiers likely suffered stress brought on by fatigue and trauma.”It eats you up,” Figley said. “It’s a horrible thing. This is not unique. We’ve seen this in other wars.”
I do not believe that this statement made by Figley to be good enough proof for a trained solder to behave in such a way. People like him used the superiority to his advantage and despite the elements he would probably still a scumbag rapist lurking in the shadows.

I only can presume that such news don’t get dramatically plastered in the news because they don’t want a people having ill impressions about American solders because well… to be frank, they need more of them so dissing the rotten apples would probably put a lot of people off joining. I don’t know.. My lame thoughts on my own blog. However if anyone reading this have opinions of their own, please leave a comment.

Ciao for now!

bored.jpgHello there my few yet ever lovable Sheila Sutra readers.

Thought I’d get my arse in order yet again and see if I can do anything special with this blog. I’m a little bored with the design since everyone has got a more personal look to theirs and its pretty sad that I’d stick to my boring template. Thought I’d re-vamp it a little make it look more like my website. Everything is feeling like its going in slow-mo since the long weekend. Think I need to exercise again to get it working the way it should again.

Update me people!! Need to know what’s going on with you active lot.

Love,

Singaporean Teen Gets Convicted For “Stealing” Bandwidth

February 16, 2007

shockedpeople.jpgI was reading this post by Tony Hung about a 17 year old kid in Singapore being charged and now convicted for using someone else’s Internet bandwidth without permission!

The interesting thing about this was that he wasn’t caught and convicted because he was using someone else’s bandwidth to download porn or music or maybe hacking but he was cought for….. wait for it……………….CHATTING! Argh! All I can say is poor kid. So he got slapped with an 18 month probation without any Internet.. and is sent to seek treatment for his addiction to Internet gaming. (and they have global competition for these games mind you…) Adding to what he said in the blog.. about free wi-fi access are available in places like Changi airport and even McDonalds in almost all over the country/island. Shouldn’t the law just stick to crimes with the Internet to something more serious like hacking and the downloading of child pornography..

I read an article once in Singapore where two kids got done for exchanging music with each-other, and they were friends.. It was simply one guy sending Mp3 songs to another friend and because of that the police went into their homes and confiscated their computers. And mind you as a girl growing up in Singapore, I and many other girls I know have had encounters with sex maniacs hounding girls on the phone and being molested in trains and buses, or even animal abusers… I mean why can’t they focus a little more on these freaks walking out on the streets then some teens stealing someones broadband. Which by the way is not the kids fault, its the fault of the people that own the bandwidth. If they smart enough to have wireless Internet at home can’t they learn to put security on it??

The more technologically advanced we get in Singapore the more likely we’re doing something illegal and not knowing it.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this.

What does Valentines Day mean to you??

February 15, 2007

I find it sweet when I see men going home from work carrying flowers.. I think its a sweet gesture that’s really personal and he doesn’t mind looking like a romantic wimp in a crowded train. That is why don’t find justice with the gigantic flowerpot of flowers delivered to offices. Its the kind of thing Donald Trump would do. Looks impressive but with very little substance.

Thanks G for the effort.

OK OK, Enough of me being soppy… Here’s some pictures of some really bad crashes

Just a taste of what you see on American Television

February 15, 2007

You’d be damn right sure that no Singaporean prime minister would every condone this kind of funny pokes. But in a really light hearted way I love American television especially the Daily Show which finds humor within politics.

A clip of Joel Surnow and FOX News’ conservative response to The Daily Show, The 1/2 Hour News Hour, has hit the tubes and needless to say, the only thing funny is how bad it is.

Comments Anyone…

Life so far…

February 13, 2007

Its been 3.5 weeks and I’m surviving the weather. Working is taking up most of my time and I’m still looking for happy hour partners. (something I never ran short of in Singapore) I try put in a good 9 hours of work a day but everyone starts packing up to leave at 4.30. Anyway will post something more interesting about my life next time.

Bangers & Mash Party

February 5, 2007

bangersmash.jpg

Another party at the Chapman/Thomas residence. Last night was our Bangers & Mash party, a welcome back to NY party for me, mostly to my first work week in Yorkers. Another week and I get paid! I know.. people get paid here every 2 weeks! Fabulous!! Can get too used to this. Of course the rent would probably suck that away just as quickly. Anyway, dinner was a smashing success thank you Garthy for doing almost all the work preparing. I helped prick the sausages hee hee felt kindda weard forking sausages. (all 80 of them!) Everyone had a great time and left with full bellies then we went all the way down-town for someone’s birthday party. I was too drunk and tired to stay there very long so an hour later we went home and pretty much was dead for most of today. Great weekend indeed!!

Some pictures of I took while in Singapore.
