How To: Improvise

                 There always comes a time when you have to give a speech, are playing a concert, are live on T.V., I don't know, a bunch of situations where you can have some situation or run out of things to say, maybe you're waiting for someone, so, what do you do? Improvise. 

                 The first thing you'll want to do is not stray away from the topic. If you do, you'll end up doing something ridiculous. I saw somebody start a speech about the sexuality and ended up talking about music. A speech doesn't work like that. Also, don't stop talking. If your speech had an awkward silence that lasted more than ten seconds, it was a failure. 

                  Now, if you're giving a concert, and the rest of the band had to go rest, or somebody got hurt, you're going to have to play a bit, something you really know how to play, or make everybody sing a song. A really easy one's "We Will Rock You". Of course learn the lyrics. If you play guitar, make an awesome solo. You can drum solo, or bass solo. Any solo will work. 

                  I don't know much about television, but I do know this. Don't do anything you don't know about. You don't want to apply a Juay De Rito out there, so don't do anything stupid. 

                  That's actually kind of it. Just do whatever that's in the top of your mind, and do it well. If you panic, you will fail miserably. If you succeed, you'll do it great. So, have fun with it, and don't blow it.

5: Fake Old Wives' Tales

              So, you've always had trustworthy advice coming from your mom. So, how true is this? Why would we listen without actually knowing what she's trying to tell us? Let's look at a few of these myths...

5: Eating Before Swimming

               You've always heard about this. Do not eat at least an hour before swimming or you'll get cramps. The Red Cross actually said that it doesn't affect cramping at all, but you should wait a bit to digest, especially if you ate a lot of fat. Also, don't eat while swimming, that's just plain stupid. 

NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM!


4: Catching A Cold

                 There's a bunch of myths about how to catch a cold, but really, there's only one single way. You need the virus to enter your system. You can go out to the extreme cold, wet, you'll be all right. In fact, many people get sick in winter because they stay inside, many times with somebody who has the cold. Also, the medicines that they give you are usually placebos with a painkiller. 

Lemonade? Wait. EWWWWWWW.

3: Watching T.V.

                How many times haven't you heard that watching too much T.V. will leave you blind? Or reading in dim light? Well, it turns out that because of evolution, that doesn't damage our eyesight at all; our eyes are adapted for different levels of lighting. Of course, too much T.V. makes you stupid and agressive. So, yeah, there's a small downside there. 

See, ma? I'm not going blind! Also, I'm beautiful!


2: If You Crack Your Knuckles, You Get Arthritis

               While cracking knuckles reduces you capacity to grip, it doesn't really do much more. Why? Because you're actually popping littles balls of gas, not bones. 

What did you say about cracking knuckles?

1: Spicy Food Causes Ulcers

                 Although ulcers have many origins, spicy food is not one of them. It aggravates them. It's usually caused by consuming too much medicine, especially aspirin and anti-inflammatories. Imagine, everybody in India would have ulcers. 

THIS AIN'T BAD FOR ME, MA!

                     So, when you hear an old wives' tail, be an ass and tell those people they're wrong. Nobody will believe you, but the truth is always a burden...

My Thoughts On: Gay Marriage

            So, the New York Senate just passed the bill for marriage equality. That means that gay marriage is now possible in the NY state. Neil Patrick Harris is now ready to marry David Burtka, and could hardly contain his excitement. Now, people make a big deal about marriage, for many reasons. 

            The most important of these reasons is religion. People claim that religiousnessless is loss of morality. I beg to differ. Many gays are very religious, actually, and although the Old Testament forbids it, you could also interpret the Bible as promoting gay marriage: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

Ah, children of fundamentalist Christians. Not much you can do when you're raised like this.
Westboro Baptist Church, I'm talking to you.

            I'm just kidding. But still, a lot of people, especially Christians and Muslims say that homosexuality is a sin. Well, it's not really a choice, it's genetics, so what? You'd say it's a curse from God? Well, let's put religion aside, and talk about morality. 

            There's nothing immoral about gay marriage. Why would it bother you? What do they do that affects you at all? Putting an example for other people? If you're going gay and you're mad at yourself, shame on you.  Everybody's free to choose what he likes. 


          
             Something many people mention is the children. What of the children? How will they be raised when both of their parents are men? Gay men? Well, Neil Patrick Harris and Burtka are actually raising twins. I mean really, as long as the child is happy, and nurtured, and has a roof where to sleep, he's going to be all right. Gay people know, more than anybody else, that everybody is free to choose, and that's what they're going to tell their son, that they'll actually encourage him to date a girl. Or tell their daughter to date a guy. They promote freedom. 

These kids have simply wonderful parents.

              Just so you know, I'm not gay, but I'm pro-gay. I know a few homosexuals, and they're great people. I don't know why some people just don't like them, there's really nothing to hate. I mean, really, why wouldn't homosexuality be moral? I know you'd think my atheism could've made me pro-gay, but really, even when I was religious, I supported these people. So, yeah, don't judge a book by its cover, eh, orientation. 

Say you're pro-gay, or I'll send you this guy.

5: Extremely Dangerous Jobs

               Everybody likes a little danger. Imagine having to live with it every day, and get low pay for it. These are a few jobs in which people risk their lives for a few bucks to put food on their tables. 

5: Skyscraper Window Cleaners

                Imagine going to Dubai, knowing you have to go more than 100 stories high, climb out the window, and start cleaning them. Hundreds, thousands of windows a day. These guys don't have handles to grab on, no safety equipment at all. They just grab sponges and start wiping. 

*Whistles*

4: Miners

               Do you remember the incident at Chile? The one where 33 miners stayed trapped, and they all got out? Well, that's a one-in-a-million case. Miners usually break bones, have limbs cut off by falling rocks, get crushed by stones, etc. So, yeah, if you need money, get into a car wash, not a mine. 

*Whistles*

3: Loggers

               These guys have enough balls to climb a tree while it's going down. I think that their balls are the ones that take the tree down in the first place. These are trees thirty inches wide, that are usually on slopes. Cut if off wrong, and it'll roll and crush anybody in its path. The trees can have dead branches the guys call "widow makers". Also, there are chainsaw accidents. One of the teeth of one cain broke once, for example, and went through bulletproof glass. 

*Whistles*

2: Deminers

                It's hard not to blow up mines when your balls make you heavier, but these guys can manage it. It's more effective to do it manually than with a machine. These guys remove land and naval mines, manually, while a scientist would do it with robotic hands behind bulletproof glass. 

*Whistles*


1: Construction Workers

                This could be the most dangerous job of them all. These men have to work building story, after story, after story. They have a few famous pictures, actually. And, yes, the BLS reports that their most common cause of death, is, obviously, falling.

*Whistles*

                     So, those of you who think that running out of coffee is an emergency, just think about these guys, and how they're always going to be better than you. I'm joking, go to your electric Prius and drive home happily.

How To: Get Over Writer's Block

               I get a lot of writer's block. It happens to me about every time I want to post something on this blog. I can take all day trying to figure out a small topic to write for you guys. Yeah, it's hard to get over writer's block, but sometimes, you just have to. So, how do you get over writer's block?



               First of all, have a small list of what you want to write about. Once you write about something, cross it off. Any time you can, add to the list. This way, you'll never run out of ideas. If you did one oddly popular post, try to do a series of it. For example, I could be writing more about ghost sites. Why? Because the Mexican Ghost Sites post was actually fairly popular. 

               Another thing you can do is write about the news. I did a small series of posts about a supposed Syran blogger who had been kidnapped, and then turned out to be a hoax. After that, I found the identity of the girl from the pictures. Why did I write about it? Because I saw it, and thought it was an interesting story. 

Really, it was a huge violation of her privacy.

               Also, there's events. I wrote about the goodbye prank, the Beatles tribute, games, fights, anything I see that I think should have a bit of coverage. I did a mediocre post when Osama died (I was just starting the blog), and really, anything interesting you hear about should be inspiration enough. 

               You can also join writing forums. You can get ideas for posts. I'm trying to collaborate with Cracked, and I've gotten a few possible ideas. You know, you get information fed, and you try to make a good article out of that. And really, you don't even need people to suggest ideas to you. I got robbed once, and I dediced to make an article about how to act if you're being robbed. Really, it's just being inspired by life itself. It's not so hard.

DO NOT PUNCH.

                 There's also controversies and stuff like that. You can write of religion, crime, science, ect. The possibilities are endless. So, there you have a few ideas to get over your writer's block. Use them well, because it's kind of hard to deal with it if unprepared.

My Thoughts On: Mexico vs. U.S.

            GOD-DAMNED AWESOME! The game started a bit hard for Mexico, with two consecutive goals by the American team. But suddenly, Barrera scored, and then everything went uphill. Guardado then scored. Barrera scored again, and in the end Giovanni scored. Each and every one of those goals was beautiful. 

             The Americans were playing rough. We lost Salcido and Marquez at the beginning of the game. Luckily, we had guys in the bench who were up for the job. There were a few small fights between the two teams, but in the end, the true champion prevailed. This was an extremely good game, and I hope Mexico can go on like that. Imagine Mexico playing like that over there at Brazil, at the World Cup.

5: Real Life Superheroes

                So everybody wants to be a superhero. Well, some people are born with special abilities. We call them those guys in the Ripley books. Let's take a look at a few of these people born with super awesome powers (curse you, destiny!)

5: Ben Underwood
    Power: Echolocation

                What the hell is echolocation? It's the ability to find out where you are by making a noise. It's like sonar. The noise bounces back to you. So this guy, Ben Underwood, plays basket, rides on a bike, and has a normal life. When he lost his eyes due to cancer, he started teaching himself to use echolocation, and is the only person in the world with that ability.

I'm blind and I can see better than you, stupid dolphin!


4: Liew Thow Lin
    Power: Magnetism

                 This guy's picture is quite famous. He's a 70-year old contractor in Malaysia, who gained attention when he pulled a car with a chain that was connected to a plate on his chest. He says that after reading of a family who had such power, he placed some forks on his abdomen and they stuck. His descendents also have this power, so he figures it's hereditary. 

I didn't steal the silver coins!


3: Tim Cridland
    Power: The Inability To Feel Pain

                   Tim doesn't feel pain. He impressed a bunch of foks when he stuck needles into his arms without flinching. He says that it's mind over matter. I say it's a bunch of f*cked up nerve endings. The guy can resist extreme heat and cold, but he's studied human anatomy. Imagine puncturing your own artery. 

*Sobbing* Nope, doesn't hurt at all.


2: Buddhist Monks
    Power: Pyrokinesis

                   Buddhist monks know a bunch of sh*t we would dream of knowing. These guys can lower their metabolism by 64% if they want to. You lower it about 14% when you sleep. Yeah, compared to them, you're stressed in your sleep. Well, they also have the ability to generate heat from their fingers and toes. About 17 degrees higher than the rest of the body. This allows them to survive in conditions that would turn you into a popsicle. 

Give a man a fire and he will be warm for a day.
Light a man on fire and he will be warm for all his life.


1: Das Uberboy (Unknown Name)
    Power: Super Muscly Body

                   This kid was born in 1999, seemingly normal, but then something was noticed. His muscles were twitching. The doctor concluded he was showing his guns, why? The kid was ripped, as sh*t! What happened? There was this stupid, X-Men style mutation that occured, called Myostatin. Farmers use it on cows to make them super muscly. Yeah, it's impressive. I can imagine the damn kid carrying tanks by now. 

7 months old, already stronger than me.
                 So, yeah, if you need a hero, go to one of these guys, they'll save your ass. Imagine Das Uberboy in 10 years. He'll be 19! That's something, ain't it? Well, that's all I've got for now, see you guys later...

5: Extremely Weird People

                So, everybody knows a few guys that are too normal, and the ones who are really bizzare, you can't even imagine how they got there. Well, I've read a bit about these guys, and trust me, once you read about these guys, you won't mind the weird kid in class. 

5: Thai Ngoc

               Thai Ngoc is a man who has gone three decades without sleeping. How the hell is that even possible? Trust me, I don't know. He says that: "I don't know whether the insomnia has impacted my health or not. But I'm still healthy and can farm normally like others." You want proof that he's healty? Well, the dude can lift two 50 kg bags of grain to farm. He lifts more than I weigh (90 kg), that's impressive enough for me. 

Ha! I won, Mommy! I didn't night-night!


4: Schoichi Yokoi

                      Yokoi's a Japanese soldier who was sent to Guam in 1944. When the Americans started taking over the island, he went into hiding. Well, on January, 1972 he was discovered hiding, even after he read leaflets saying WWII was over. When he returned to Japan, he said: "It is with much embarrassment that I have returned alive", while carrying a rusted rifle. 

I don't worry, I'm still in the prime of my youth!


3: Mehran Karimi Nasseri

                    Karimi, A.K.A. Sir, Alfred Mehran (yup, Sir, with a coma), is an Iranian refugee who has been living in the departure lounge of Terminal 1 in the Charles De Gaulle airport since August 8, 1988. When he wanted to go to the U.K., his shoulder bag was mugged. He still got on the plane, but was sent back to the airport. Why? His passport was in his bag. He couldn't go back to Iraq either. So, what did he do? Live there. He was the inspiration for the 2004 movie, The Terminal. Yeah, that Tom Hanks movie. He set up his small house of cartons and bags, and has lived there since 1988. 

Go get your own fortress!

2: Matayoshi Mitsuo

                   Ah, so Jesus of Nazareth, how did he look like? Some say like he's painted (which is actually Da Vinci's face), others say that he looks like a normal Middle Eastern. Nazis thought he was Aryan. Well, this guy thinks differently. Mitsuo thinks he is God and Christ, and he believes he will carry out the last judgement. He wants to be elected Prime Minister, and then be recognized by the U.N. as General Secretary. Matayoshi Jesus then plans to run over the world with political and religious power. He's done many campaigns where he suggests opponents commit hara-kiri (suicide).

Nope. Not weird at all.


1: David Allen Bawden

                  So you know how the pope candidate has to go through hardships to be elected, and then competes against a bunch of other guys who want to be pope. Well, Bawden decided to take matters into his own hands. He says that the last 6 popes were invalid because they were modernists. He was elected by post-Sedevacantist Catholics, including some three guys, his parents and himself. This was in 1990. He remains on the job to this day. 

I am the voice of God, I - Hey who wants to go to the bar?
                   So there you go, a bunch of freaks. Like I said, after seeing these guys, you won't really mind the weird kid in class. Well, that's all I've got for now, have a good weekend.

Book Review: Eating Animals

               Jonathan Safran Foer is an author living in New York, who started writing this book in 2006. It took a ton of investigation, and finally, he could publish it in 2009. I never got around to reading it because I think that the subject of the morality of eating animals is a bit too hard, and I'd rather not stop eating nuggets and beef. Still, since it was given to me as a gift, I decided to read it. 

               Foer writes about factory farmers and commercial fishers. He gives off facts, for example, for every pound of shrimp caught, 50 pounds of other animals are caught. This statement made my uncle (who gave me this book) stop eating tuna. He also says that chickens that are built to lay eggs live in a small, one square foot cage. Imagine a hen living in a cage with the size of an ipad. 

JAPAN


                He mentions that the chickens' cycles are altered with, so that they can lay eggs all year long, the lighting's altered so that they think it's spring all year long. This makes them lay eggs about four times the amount that a hen would in nature. The same goes for turkeys. He says a product can be called organic, and it won't mean anything. You can give them a screened window where they can see the outside and the product can be deemed "free-range". 

FREE-RANGE


                Pigs are also altered, so that they can be slain faster. They reach full size in about 13 weeks. If they're allowed to live fully, they can reach 800 pounds. That's about 2 or 3 times the size of a normal pig. He talks about their psysiological effects when they're at the slaughterhouses. Apparently, pigs have these social heirarchies, feel stress too, and can get heart attacks. 

This swine almost weighs a ton.


                 Cows don't have it easy either. They're also genetically altered to grow quickly, and they're also killed in adolescence. Once they're at the slaughterhouse, they're lined up, and a dart is shot between their eyes. This renders them unconscious, but some keep moving. After that, they're hanged, and their throat is slit. They start vomiting and bleeding from the neck. After that, their face is cut in half, and some cows are still alive and conscious. After that, their legs are cut in half, and those still alive when they get there start moving frantically. After that, their heads and bodies start being skinned. Few cows reach the next part conscious. After that, they're beheaded, and finally sawed in half, which gives the iconic beef hanging from the ceiling. 

They're just there. Hanging. Waiting for death.

                 He also gives many other details, testimonies, statistics, but for that, you'll have to read the book. I really recommend it, it'll change your way of viewing the world. Thank you, uncle, for having bought me this book. 'Till next time...

5: Ghost Sites In The United Kingdom

                When I was writing my book, one of the main sceneries is Great Britain. Why? There's a huge sh*tton of ghosts there, according to the people. It's one of the most haunted places, supposedly, so why not write a bit about some places I read about? Let's see...

5: Arundel Castle

                 A restored medieval castle founded by Roger de Montgomery, on Christmas Day, 1607, which was damaged in the Civil War and was restored in the 18th-19th centuries. It is the principal seat for the Norfolk Family. 

                 The spirit of the First Earl of Arundel, the builder of the castle, still haunts the Castle's Keep. Another woman who jumped off a tower after having her heart broken appears in moonlit nights wearing a white gown. There's also a "Blue Man" in the library, said to be a cavalier.

                  A white owl appears sometimes, and is said to be an omen of death of an inhabitant of the castle. There's also a servant who was beaten to death, who stayed in the kitchen scrubbing pots and pans. Once a footman saw him and got close to him, when suddenly he disappeared. 

Yeah, man, that's uh... not creepy at all.


4: 50 Berkely Square

                   The most haunted house in London, 50 Berkely Square has seen some wicked stuff. It was built in 1770, and from that year to 1827 it was home of Prime Minister George Canning. It was unoccupied from 1859 to 1880. Since 1938, it was owned by Maggs Bros, some antiquarian book dealers. 

                    So, why's this the most haunted house in London? Easy. It was built over a plague pit, a mass grave where victims of the Black Plague were buried. Once, a maid was found up in the third floor, stiff with fear. Something there made her go mad. Once, a guest who was skeptical about the whole thing locked himself in the same room for the night, and was to ring the bell once if he was comfortable, and another if he was disturbed. He rang once, and after a pause started ringing frantically. Once the family heard it they rushed into the room and saw his corpse on the bed. People have also said that they've seen a shapeless, hideous being which left them repulsed. 

-Well, that doesn't seem so bad, does it?
-coooooome innnnnnnnn
-
Of course, eerie wind voice!
3: The Borley Rectory

                    The Borley Rectory, a house built near Borley, gained a reputation as the most haunted house of England. Take that, Berkely! So, the first thing they saw here was the ghost of a nun. When the family tried to talk to it, she disappeared. People saw a bunch of stuff there, like a coach driven by two headless horsemen. In 1928, the rector, Harry Bull, son of the original owners, died. Another family moved in, and the wife, while she was in the kitchen, found the skull of a young lady in a brown paper package. 

                     There were also these servant bells whose strings had been cut, which kept ringing and ringing. Stones started throwing themselves, messages appeared in the mirrors, and the family hired a paranormal investigator. It didn't work. 

We call this one Albino.


2: Hampton Court Palace

                     Yup, the castle where our old ladies's man, King Henry VIII lived. Here's a small list of ghosts that haunt the place...




  • Cardinal Wolsey






  • Anne Boleyn: Second wife, beheaded for alleged adultery. Seen as lady dressed in blue or back.






  • Jane Seymour: Third wife, mother of Edward VI, who died during or shortly after childbirth. (Sources conflict) appears on the anniversary of her son’s birth, carrying a lit taper.






  • Catherine Howard: Fifth wife, beheaded for alleged treason. Her shrieks are heard; her phantom, seen. A man saw a ghostly hand wearing an elaborate ring knocking on a door. This was the ring Catherine wore in a royal portrait. King






  • Dame Sybil Penn, Grey Lady of Hampton Court Palace: King Edward VI’s and Queen Elizabeth I’s nurse. Died of smallpox. After Sybil’s tomb was disturbed, sounds of a spinning wheel were heard. When Hampton Court was searched for the noise’s source, a hidden chamber containing a spinning wheel was found. Her ghost has been sighted as a lady dressed in grey.






  • Archbishop Laud: Beheaded for treason. His headless ghost stalks Hampton Court.







  •                           Yeah...he had a way with women.
    Dude, medieval con's over. Get out of here.


    1: Raynman Hall

                             While this place isn't the most haunted, it's one of the most famous. Why? The Brown Lady. There's no doubt about it, you've seen her photo before. One man tried to get near to her, and noticed that she has empty eye sockets. She went through him, and he said he felt a sort of chill. Lady Dorothy, a.k.a. the Brown Lady, as I said, could have the most famous ghost photo of all time. 

    Dat ass.
                               There you have it, a bunch of English ghosts. There's a whole lot I left out, so I could write about this later on. So check back when you can. Have fun scaring the hell out of yourselves, see ya.

    5: Overrated Band Members

                   All right, so a while ago I wrote about underrated band members, and now, I'm going to talk about their counterparts. You know, those who were worshipped but weren't really all that great. Let's take a small look...

    5: Kurt Cobain



                    While the guy had talent, you have to admit, his rhythms weren't that complicated, which made it easier for him to scream while playing. Oh yeah, have you ever heard him live? Yeah, he wasn't all that great once you stop to think about it. 

    4: Axl Rose

    Yeah, not a douche at all.

                     Yeah, the infamous redhead. Some say he is Gn'R. Well, he's the only original member left (and Dizzy, if you count him), and listen to Guns today. He was actually the dumb f*ck who ruined Guns n' Roses in the first place, so consider that in your calculations. 

    3: Bono

    You shall never find a photo of Bono without his sunglasses.


                     Really, this guy's just funny. Yeah, he's Irish, and we all love a guy who can get piss drunk and have fun with it, but he's kinda convinced he's U2, and he's always in the center of attention for some reason. Yeah, he can sustain a good voice, but that's kind of all he can do. 

    2: Chad Kroeger

    Seriously dude, Nickleback just sucks.


    1: Kirk Hammett

    GUITAR FACE.


                      I love Metallica, but when Mustaine left the band, Cliff Burton was the guy in charge of songwriting. After Cliff, Hetfield kept writing. Hammett is just an imitation of Mustaine's playing. He's good, yes, but not original. Sorry, Kirk.

    My Thoughts On: The Prom

                 Fellow students, congratulations, you earned it. Tonight was a great night. We had to go to church and then take a photoshoot in the blazing sun, at 42 degrees Celcius (yeah, with suits and stuff), and then we went to the Atrium, a small dome-shaped club at the top of a building. 

                While we had dinner, some band started playing, and these two guitar players started playing flamenco. It was impressive, but really had nothing to do with prom. Then, they started playing music which was really for the parents, and then they went to eat dinner. While they rested, they played a video showing pictures of us when we were in kindergarten and elementary, and a few pics of junior high. 

                After seeing the pics (and eating dessert) we started dancing. They started playing old spanish rock, then a bit of country, some rock n' roll, samba, Grease music, and more mainstream music like Pitbull and Shakira. In the end my feet were aching, and I kept dancing, until I really couldn't take another step. 

                Even though this was the last time I would see the whole generation together, I know that they'll always have a place in my mind and heart. I say again, congratulations, you guys deserve it, and I hope we meet again someday. Farewell, good luck, and godspeed.
