Chuck Norris Facts

Check this out...

Here're some excerpts:
  • When Chuck Norris does a pushup, he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing the Earth down.
  • Chuck Norris can lead a horse to water AND make it drink.
  • When Chuck Norris was denied an Egg McMuffin at McDonald's because it was 10:35, he roundhouse kicked the store so hard it became a Wendy's
  • When Chuck Norris talks, everybody listens. And dies.
  • If at first you don't succeed, you're not Chuck Norris.
  • According to Einstein's theory of relativity, Chuck Norris can actually roundhouse kick you yesterday.
Surprisingly, the man himself, Chuck Norris, does not find all these offensive. I guess if he did, we'd all get roundhouse kicks on our faces... hehehe..

I miss Angeline

I'm currently in Penang for business. I've been here for 2 days and will only return home in a couple of days time. I'm missing Angeline. I miss her so much. The verse that says "two become one" has never been more real for me. Sigh...

My England no good...

English is really crazy

There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins were not invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies, while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square, and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write, but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce, and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So, one moose, 2 meese? One index, two indices? Is cheese the plural of choose?

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?

In what language do people recite at a play, and play at a recital?

Ship by truck, and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? Park on driveways and drive on parkways? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? How can the weather be hot as hell one day and cold as hell another?

When a house burns up, it burns down. You fill in a form by filling it out, and an alarm clock goes off by going on.

When the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible. And why, when I wind up my watch, I start it, but when I wind up this essay, I end it.

Tayo and Kemi

Akintayo Akinyemi has been my spiritual comrade during my uni days at UNL. We've been thru so much together and I've been so blessed by not just his friendship, but by the life of God in him. I always remember the time we shared during prayer meetings, bible studies, softball matches, movies and Taboo games.

Kemi Olubudun was the first Nigerian girl I met at UNL. I recall very well that she didn't like cats, and remembered telling her that she shared the same name with Pastor Tom Barber's cat. I didn't really get a chance to know Kemi too well, at least as I much as I wanted to, but I will always remember her infectious smile, somewhat like what Tayo has, and her desire to sing. And boy, could she sing.

Tayo will marry Kemi on the 10th of March, 2007. I always dreamed to see the day when Tayo will get married, but just that I never knew when it would happen (sorry tayo). But it's finally happening, and my heart rejoice with him. I'm so glad that he's marrying Kemi too.
So to Tayo and Kemi, my heartiest congratulations. May God bring much blessings to your lives, and I can't wait to see the little Tayos and Kemis...

Infrared Photography

I think the pictures produced are kinda cool. In case you didn't know, this is not BW photography. They use special IR filters and films, and for digital cameras, they actually have to modify their equipment to attain these results. Click on here to see more.
