Candy of famous Japanese animation

Japanese Manga - 再见萤火虫, English replica Grave of the Fireflies, a poignant story line about sibling-hood during the atomic fallout in Japan. I was allure to see it sold here. Without hesitation, I bought 3, tribute to the great animation, and a collectible.

On the side note, this candy discourages snacking. The cap design is exactly the same as in the animation. I will keep this for a very long time. You can see the Japanese version one sold here. (Link) SGD 3.50, not cheap hor, and not made in China.

Melamine, how far has it spread already?

Black DeathAccording to NewScientist, It is worst than we thought. Here are few quotes,

“So far, 53,000 infants have fallen ill after drinking formula milk deliberately adulterated with melamine. Four babies have died, 13,000 have been hospitalised and 104 are in a critical condition with kidney stones caused by the adulterant. A girl in Hong Kong has become the first case of poisoning outside China.”

“But in a report released in May 2007, the US Food and Drug Administration said its investigations found that consuming "pork, chicken, fish and eggs from animals that had inadvertently been fed animal feed contaminated with melamine ... was very unlikely to pose a human health risk".

Wow! Like that, sounds like propaganda to boycott China food, and chicken, and fish, and pig that was fed in China.

How to use your N82 like a pro

We were having fun with the light saber effect. How do you do this?

1. Set your N82 camera to night mode
2. Switch off the flash and room light
3. swing away your light saber
4. snap!

This was an accidental shot, and then we decided to have fun. They almost refuse to sleep. I am going to be late for work. I uploaded all of them to my FaceBook. Those interested to see them all can email me.

The root of evil

Root of Evil?I was once told of news about root of sin being dug out in Japan. Although never seen it, I have to admit that I was intrigued.

Does it look like this?

A weird fungus like “living” thing was dug out from China HanZhong. It sure fits my imagination of “The Profound Darkness”. It looks harmless. It can blends into many forms shape. It is in China. Scientists are giving it an autopsy now. I sure hope that they will not be mind control. (Link) via XinHuaNet

Spore: Creatism or Darwinism

Spore: Creatism or DarwinismThe about to take mass media by storm, Spore, receive a 91% rating from PC Gamer, I think it would get the same at others. So is the controversy it arouses. I remembered a game name ‘Black and White’, which you play god, torture or bless your creation as you see fit. I like that idea although I didn’t play the game.

If God can create human perfect, why didn’t he do it in the first place?

In Spore, I heard, you can make a humanoid so much like man, which will make you conclude. Human, must have been designed.

Read this post: Intelligent design and popular culture: Spore game site dupes atheists.

There is even a site: Anti Spore. You tell me.

It is not whether God exist that is important. It is what you want your children to know. We are just a breed of super mutant monkey, by chance, by a strike of lighting, transform us into an intelligent ape, who appreciate nature without any apparent reason, or, we are prepared and designed.

I would like to read more critics about this game. I will also try it out
