PLDT: “Remind Us In A Week”

Yes, PLDT, probably the largest communications utility in the country, completely dumb-shits all over themselves again. It’s not at all shocking, being that it’s comprised of typical dumb-fuck Filipino idiots.…

What Is A Troll?

internet troll-a

A troll is someone who doesn’t like the content of a website, criticizes those who write content for the website, claims it’s not worth wasting bandwidth on, then becomes obsessed with wasting his/her bandwidth by scrutinizing every little thing on it and wasting bandwidth all night long writing sarcastic post submissions and comments, because they are unhappy they ran into an article that didn’t tickle their fancy. They take their anger out on the website for having the audacity to publish an article they didn’t like, then engage themselves heavily in talking about how unengaging it is, instead of just simply googling the content that will make them happy. They ignorantly don’t bother to find out what the site is about, expecting it to be what THEY want it to be, then hit the trolling ground running because they are disappointed that the site isn’t what they want it to be. Every website gets a troll or two now and then. Fortunately, they are far outnumbered by those who do enjoy and appreciate the website. And they are always dealt with appropriately. I didn’t make this website with the expectation everyone would like it. I don’t make a dime from it, and it would be real fucking easy to click one button and make it go away forever. And I have thought…

ANGRY

This is about bad food and cleanliness type experiences in the Philippines. Now in light of the GOT DAMNED donut thread I want to hear all your horrible experiences and I want to hear all the petty  complaints, so please feel free to bitch over the smallest thing. WHY?…….

Banging My Head Against The LTO

Stupid Filipino law enforcement does not obey helmet laws,

A couple months ago I’m driving down the road on my moto with my GF seated behind me. I’m wearing my helmet, and she is not…because she doesn’t want to mess her hair up. In the distance I see a LTO van pull off to the side of the road. No problem…I’ll be past these guys before they can get out of the van. Nope…I’m about even with the van when one guy leaps out, he…

UnliCall – Are You REALLY Getting A Deal?

SMART Live Less 1

Being a foreigner surrounded by a bunch of idiot locals,  I rarely have anything to say to them in person and I sure as hell don’t have anything to say to them from a distance.  As some of you may know, I do have at least ONE foreign friend here who I keep in touch with once in a while.  Therefore, I ACTUALLY have a reason to make a local call in this godforsaken country.…

I Have a Headache…Could You Please Make More Noise?

Noisy stupid Filipinos

  Ok…I’m sorry but I don’t get this at all. The Filipinos in my household, both the workers and the folks who live here, are, by American standards, very loud. Ok, so I buy headphones and laugh it off most of the time, but sometimes its just damn baffling. Today someone in the house was…

Secret…Secret…..

scam alert

 I thought the secret to understanding Filipinos transplanted to the US was to not ask too many questions. I now know that the secret actually is…ask all the questions in a logical progression and keep track of the answers! I have a young Filipino friend who was very excited about following up on an opportunity.…

The Twilight Zone

rod-serling3

This is a true story. I swear to it and would take a lie detector test if needed. I think I found a rip in the space time continuum that let me travel to a parallel universe inside an MRT station. I was travelling to see a buddy of mine and decided to take the…

Ockham’s Razor

OccamsRazor

Occam’s razor (also written as Ockham’s razor and in Latin lex parsimoniae) is a principle of parsimony, economy, or succinctness used in problem-solving devised by William of Ockham (c. 1287–1347). It states that among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected. Other, more complicated solutions may ultimately prove correct, but—in the…
