As a general rule… On honesty

Standard

As a general rule, people who don’t agree with something need to stop saying “I’m not sure if I agree with that.”

Grow a pair and speak your mind. If the idea is stupid, replace “I’m not sure if I agree with that” with “No. That’s idiotic. When they coined the term ‘moron’ I’m sure they were thinking of you.”

Honesty is important.

Happy 50,000th!

Standard

This blog has just hit the 50,000 visits mark since I first started writing it. Coincidentally, it happened on the same day as my 10,000th tweet from @arjanshahani

Traffic is erratic and different people from different countries gravitate here for different content and different reasons, but on any given weekday, anywhere from 200 to a 1000 of you grace me with a visit to this space where I can share web content I find entertaining and amusing, provide you with my own bit of personal humor and satire and/or share my true opinion through Op-Eds or sociopolitical essays.

It’s developed into a nice little personal corner of mine on the web and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I appreciate your comments, ping backs, visits, retweets on Twitter, re-posts and shares on Facebook and any other ways in which you have helped bring more people to the site.

I truly hope that through these little over 50,000 hits I’ve been able to at the very least, provide you with some entertainment. At best, I hope your visit here has become a starting point of a deeper conversation and my “True Opinion” articles have inspired you to think or act differently.

Anyways, cheers to all of you and the humblest of thanks for your visits and input. You kick ass.

Bodas y Traición

Standard

Presentamos la primer revista para novias que es realista. Normalmente las revistas de novias idealizan el matrimonio, te hablan de “tu boda perfecta” y te venden hasta lo que no con tal de que gastes todo tu dinero en ese mágico día en que dejas de ser una novia y te vuelves esposa.

Sin embargo, en “Bodas y Traición” sabemos que esto es un sueño guajiro así que ampliamos nuestro espectro para sí, ayudarte a planear tu boda pero también, a planear tu curso de acción cuando ese bribón que te prometió el cielo, el mar y las estrellas te salga con alguna “sorpresita.” BODAS Y TRAICIÓN, la revista que se preocupa por ti y te dice como vengarte cuando tu esposo deja de ser el príncipe azul que te prometió ser.

HIV-positive Muppet

Standard


This muppet was infected with AIDS. I shit you not. It’s an old story but many of you might not have caught wind of it.

Meet Kami, a Sesame Street character in the South Africa and Kenya versions of the children’s TV show.

Unfortunately, Kami had to get a transfusion and apparently, someone in the hospital screwed up big time because they gave her AIDS. Kami’s mom also died of AIDS… details on how she caught the disease are sketchy but the probability of two transfusion infection cases in the family seems unlikely. My money is on infected heroin needles or an irresponsible sex life.
