If you can’t stand the heat….then STFU!

ALLLLLRRRIIIIGHHHTTTY!!!  You’ve been here for a while…you thought you had a handle on just how idiotic this place is.  You may have even found that “safe space” in your head that helps you tolerate the Moron Parade that goes by every day of the week around here. Sorry.  You were wrong.  In typical fashion around…

Communication, Misinterpetation, 7 Months of Utter Frustration!

Stupid-Pinoy

Ok…Ok…I actually give up, I concede the point.You cannot comprehend me for a few key reasons: You cannot or will not listen. Although you insist that you have excellent English, and in fact have actually taught English in da Pilipines (how that is even remotely possible is entirely beyond me). Your ability to comprehend the…

What’s Next? A Hammer To Your Penis?

We all know that Pinoys hate foreigners.  We come here and do the unthinkable….treat their women with respect. It doesn’t always mean those women know how to handle that respect, as much as they enjoy it, but we do it nevertheless.  So what’s a poor Pinoy to do when the foreigners have all the good…

We are not alone…

Rich-Pinoy

Sorry, this isn’t a story about aliens (although that would explain all those spaces between ears where the brains SHOULD be around here). This is a story about proof that we’re not the only place where you’ll see some refreshing honesty, rather than that nasty plastic sweetness of stale kool aid the Department Of Tourism…

Waxing political

SEN-Bong-Revilla-Noob

They say that, in America at least, the two topics to stay away from in any conversation is religion and politics.  And I think there’s a reason for it.  Both topics (usually) are full of subtle and not-so-subtle nuances that delve deeper into the core values of everyone at that discussion’s table.  In other words,…

Red tape, yellow tape…what does it matter?

Pinoy-Problem-Solving

As I was parking my car at the local mall to avoid yet another flash flood, I came across this beauty.  It got me thinking…..wasn’t this the perfect metaphor for the many things that go wrong around here that never have to go wrong?  Let’s apply this image to other areas of the Philippines, shall…

To Live And Die In PH

Free-Rice

So, I’m reading the news and I come across this tragic tale: DAVAO CITY, Philippines – Two Swiss nationals were killed after sustaining multiple gunshot wounds in Opol town in Misamis Oriental Sunday afternoon, October 5. The Opol Municipal Police Station said about 3 armed men approached and shot the victims, identified as Robert Loever…

That’s my spot..and that one…and that one too..

I had an incident last weekend that enlightened me to a recurring condition that many Filipinos suffer from. Delusions of ownership. They literally think that they own parking spots on public streets, to the point where they won’t even park in a space next to the one they want because “it’s in front of my…

Driving Around in The Philippines

*Jeeps in the middle of the streets filling passengers, no concern at all that they are causing traffic. *Normal sight at Sales Bridge right beside MMDA traffic enforcers.  Jeeps waiting in the middle of streets waiting to fill passengers. & jeepneys use the area as terminal…it seems Filipinos think the sign means it’s the other…

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…

We’re 2 Days into the Xmas Season

Sto Nino, that Chuckie doll thing that the idiot Pinoys violate one of the Ten Commandments by bowing down and worshiping.

We’re two days into the Christmas season in Philippines. The dreaded “Ber” months (SeptemBER, OctoBER, NovemBER, DecemBER…fucking brilliant, huh?). That 1/3 of your year that becomes a hellish nightmare filled with senseless distorted garbling nonsense being blasted through 2 meter tall loudspeakers at ear splitting decibels right there at the entrance of retail establishments. Horrifying bullshit traffic…
