More on Exams…

i’m so very sorry if you clicked on this post, all serious and hoping to learn some more real good tips on how to revise and write your exam to get that big and bold EXCELLENCE on your paper….because this post is just stupid (yes, even, i, the creator of this post admit it!). This post is full of nonsense that a sudden but well thought out inspiration had led me to do.

You see…as i was reading Alisha’s post (which has some REAL and helpful hints and tips!) and saw the maths test pic, i got the sudden brainstorm that i shud hop on to google (not literally because that would result in a smashed up laptop that would put me in solitary confinement…my parents version of it!) and seek out some other pics of people’s test papers which they wrote stupid answers on! some of them (hopefully all) are a major crack up!

so here…check ’em out!

I love the last one and to be honest, don’t get most of the other ones. Maybe if you do, you can tell me…lol.

it took me a while to get that lol.

awesome comment!

another version of the pic alisha put on. I gess this is verryyy common in exams lol.

lol. nice elephant.

funny.

hey, at least he/she’ll pass his english exam when he/she has to describe things…

thats all for now. hoped you enjoyed!


Whittaker’s VS Cadbury

I have to admit, I am a Whittaker girl, so I thought I’d put up the ad that’s been centre of attention for the past few weeks. I think it’s really quirky and unless you’ve watched it before, it’s a slight shocker.

It compelled me to think that maybe this was a contributing factor in Cadbury’s decision to bring back cocoa butter to their chocolate. There is a slight possibility.

I’m not going to say much more… The brilliant ad speaks for itself.

That last part hits the NZ target audience right where it hurts the most… their patriotic ego. This is definitely my favourite ad of the year!

And just so I’m being fair please vote for your favourite chocolate so I have something to prove… WITH STATISTICAL EVIDENCE :


Brad Pitt: Green Day Concert With The Boys

okay, maybe some of your getting really tired of this huge Green Day phase i’m going through (if you have no idea what i’m blabbering about, go to the Music page and you’ll know what i’m talking about) but this is way too interesting to pass. I found this while i was on the Green Day website.

Brad Pitt: Green Day Concert With The Boys!

 Brad Pitt gets in some father-son bonding time with his two oldest sons — Maddox, 8, and Pax, 5 — at the Green Day concert in the first row of section 114 at the New Orleans Arena on Friday (August 7).

Band members Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool rocked out for a straight 2.5 hours.

At one point during the concert, Bille Joe commanded. “Everybody off your asses!”

Even Brad obliged!

Bradd Pitt in Green day concert

Interesting aye? Um…is it just me or does it seem a bit awkward for Brad Pitt to be in a Green Day concert. Then again, who am i to judge? He’s got every right to be there!

In any case, leave us a comment and tell us what you think!


Did you know…

guess what?? u prolly alredy guessed because of the title (maybe) but i’ll give an announcement anyway…i found AWESOME and COOL did you know facts!!!!

….okay, maybe you guys aren’t as excited about this as i am but these facts are preetttyyy cool (lol i tried to get that mysterious feeling there…hmm…). And all it took was a lil’ bit of typing and a click on google (as usual). seriously, don’t you guys think google is reeeaally cool??? i mean, i would’ve prolly failed a lot of my assignments without google! So GO GOOGLE!!!

anyway, back to the (future…no, sorry, i’m kidding and i find that (oddly) funny because i’m on a huge high!) facts thing. Here’s what i found…

So, here we go…did you know…

-six year olds laugh an average of 400 times a day and adults laugh an average of 15 times a day (no wonder having a child in the house lightens up the house although there’s two more adults around as well!).

– When you blush, the lining in your stomach turns red as well (wow, blushes are pretty powerful things).

-When William Shakespear’s Midsummer Night’s dream was performed in London in 1662, Samuel Pepys, an old time critic, said that it was a “the most stupid ridiculous play that i ever saw in my life”(…i wonder how the guy would feel now for saying that!)

Top signs of Internet Addiction:

 * You wake up at 3 a.m. to go to the bathroom and stop to check your e-mail on the way back to bed.

* You name your children Eudora, Mozilla and Dotcom.

* You turn off your modem and get this awful empty feeling, like you just pulled the plug on a loved one.

You spend half of the plane trip with your laptop on your lap…and your child in the overhead compartment.

* You decide to stay in college for an additional year or two, just for the free Internet access.

* You laugh at people with 28,800 modems.

* You start using smiley’s in your snail mail.

* Your hard drive crashes.

* You haven’t logged in for two hours. You start to twitch.

* You pick up the phone and manually dial your ISP’s access number.

* You try to hum to communicate with the modem. And you succeed.

(rigghhtt…and i thought i was addicted to the internet!)

–  Things that make you go ‘hmm…’ (and annoy you ALOT!…these ones are a bit common, maybe you’ve heard of them or maybe you haven’t! =P)

People who point at their wrist while asking for the time…. I know where my watch is pal, where the heck is yours?

  People who are willing to get off their butt to search the entire room for the TV remote because they refuse to walk to the TV and change the channel manually.

When people say “Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too!” Hello! What good is cake if you can’t eat it? Who doesn’t want to have their cake and eat it? What else am I going to do with my cake?

 When people say “it’s always the last place you look”. Of course it is. Why would you keep looking after you’ve found it? Do people do this? Who are they? Where are they? And Why??

When people say while watching a film “Did you see that??” No, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the floor. Then I miss the next scene for answering the doofus’ question!

 People who ask “Can I ask you a question?”…. Didn’t really give me a choice there, did ya?

When something is ‘New and Improved!’ Which is it? If it’s new, then there has never been anything before it. If it’s an improvement, then there must have been something before it, so it couldn’t be new.

When people say “Life is short”. What?? Life is the longest thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that’s longer?

 When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks “Has the bus come yet?” If the bus came would I be standing here? Yeah the bus came but I decided to wait for you!

Here’s a bit of human stats. They are really weird and make you think: is this for real??? …

– 45% of Americans don’t know that the sun is a star.

-70% of the poor people in the world are female.

-In a day 34,000 children die every day from causes that are related to poverty and hunger.

– In a lifetime, the average driver will honk 15,250 times.

– 1 out of 350,000 Americans get electrocuted in their life.

– Of married couples, 70% of men and 60% of women have cheated on their spouse

– According to research, Los Angeles highways are so congested that the average commuter sits in traffic for 82 hours a year.

– Annually, the amount of garbage that is dumped in the world’s oceans is three times the weight of fish that is caught from the oceans.

When i first started this post, i was admiring Google. So i thought…why not find some good solid facts about google that would interest our viewers and…here i am, giving you facts about our very useful and fast (unless you’re bandwith (did i spell that right?)  finishes) search engine!

– Google’s name is a play on the word googol, which refers to the number 1 followed by one hundred zeroes. The term was coined by Milton Sirotta, nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner, and was popularized in the book, “Mathematics and the Imagination” by Kasner and James Newman. Google’s play on the term reflects the company’s mission to organize the immense amount of information available on the web.

– Google started as a research project at Stanford University, created by Ph.D. candidates Larry Page and Sergey Brin when they were 24 years old and 23 years old respectively (a combined 47 years old).

– Google’s index of web pages is the largest in the world, comprising of billions of web pages. Google searches this immense collection of web pages often in less than half a second.

– Google receives daily search requests from all over the world, including Antarctica.

– Users can restrict their searches for content in 35 non-English languages, including Chinese, Greek, Icelandic, Hebrew, Hungarian and Estonian. To date, no requests have been received from beyond the earth’s orbit, but Google has a Klingon interface just in case.

– Google has a world-class staff of more than 2,668 employees known as Googlers. The company headquarters is called the Googleplex. (i wonder where it is because i want to work there now! Imagine, working at a place called Googleplex (i find the name cute, lol).

– The basis of Google’s search technology is called PageRank™, and assigns an “importance” value to each page on the web and gives it a rank to determine how useful it is. However, that’s not why it’s called PageRank. It’s actually named after Google co-founder Larry Page.

– Googlers are multifaceted. One operations manager, who keeps the Google network in good health is a former neurosurgeon. One software engineer is a former rocket scientist. And the company’s chef formerly prepared meals for members of The Grateful Dead and funkmeister George Clinton.

– The name ‘Google’ was an accident. A spelling mistake made by the original founders who thought they were going for ‘Googol’.

– The infamous “I’m feeling lucky” button is nearly never used. However, in trials it was found that removing it would somehow reduce the Google experience. Users wanted it kept. It was a comfort button.

    ….

And now it comes to an end. But don’t worry we’ll be back with something else that’s interesting (hopefully) soon enough! While we do, go check out the other pages and leave us a message!!!!

Anyway, i hope you enjoyed that little fact field trip and come back soon for more. See yah!!

Twilight Shocker…

Thursday July 30, 02:02 PM

Lefevre shocked over ‘Twilight’ dumping

By Yahoo!Xtra Entertainment

Summit Entertainment’s decision to replace Rachelle Lefevre in the upcoming Twilight movie, Eclipse, was a shock to actress herself as well as fans of the series.

Yesterday the company announced that redheaded actress Bryce Dallas Howard, daughter of director Ron Howard, would replace Lefevre as vampire Victoria in Eclipse, due to begin filming in Vancouver on August 17.

Summit blamed ‘scheduling conflicts’ for the decision to replace the 30-year-old Canadian with Howard, who last appeared on the big screen in Terminator: Salvation.

Lefevre has played Victoria through previous two instalments of the series – Twilight, released last year, and the upcoming New Moon.

The actress has a role in independent film Barney’s Version, co-starring Paul Giamatti, also due to begin filming on August 17 in Quebec, on the other side of Canada.

Rachelle Lefevre released this statement to the media today.

“I was stunned by Summit’s decision to recast the role of Victoria for Eclipse. I was fully committed to the Twilight saga, and to the portrayal of Victoria. I turned down several other film opportunities and, in accordance with my contractual rights, accepted only roles that would involve very short shooting schedules.

“My commitment to Barney’s Version is only 10 days. Summit picked up my option for Eclipse. Although the production schedule for Eclipse is over three months long, Summit said they had a conflict during those 10 days and would not accommodate me. Given the length of filming for Eclipse, never did I fathom I would lose the role over a 10-day overlap. I was happy with my contract with Summit and was fully prepared to continue to honour it. Summit chose simply to recast the part.

“I am greatly saddened that I will not get to complete my portrayal of Victoria for the Twilight audience. This is a story, a theatrical journey and a character that I truly love and about which I am very passionate. I will be forever grateful to the fan support and loyalty I’ve received since being cast for this role, and I am hurt deeply by Summit’s surprising decision to move on without me. I wish the cast and crew of Eclipse only the very best.”

Fans of the Twilight series have already taken their fight for Summit to retain Lefevre public online.

Ok, to be honest i’m not much of a Twilight fan anymore. That obsession died out ages ago. But i do think this is kind of sad. This article’s from Yahoo! so it’s believable. If she was backing out of this, then i think it would have been all gud but Summit Entertainment is just…cutting her out. That’s not nice. I’ve always thought there was something…cold about Summit. Although i think her little farewell statement is a bit overdoing it, i think it’s sad and rather stupid to cut her off like this. I mean, she was part of the reason Twilight rocketed last year. You can’t deny that; there are heaps of fans out there that would hate to see her leave. And if Summit takes her out, they might just lower the number of Twilight lovers. But maybe i’m jumping to conclusions here. No matter how trustworthy Yahoo! is, it’s still media and who can trust the media?

Snappy

Well…that’s my opinion. So what do you guys think? I assume there’s a lot (and i mean a LOT) of Twilight Fans out there. So don’t be shy to drop us a comment about what you think about this and come back to check out for more news!! Later.



Holiday in Exile…

THE HOLIDAYS ARE OVER!!!

I know this is a bit of a late reaction but i havent had time to do much on this blog. it’s been work work and getting over the depression that comes with the start of term…

now that i’m talking about school and holidays…did you guys know that holiday is YASUMI in Japanese and school holiday is GAKKO NO YASUMI…pretty interesting, aye???? Those are permenantly learned words from my jap class. yes, gasp all you want, i take japanese Poutyit’s not a big deal and not a such horrid subject. there are positives things about the subject…i don’t get why so many people dislike it. sometimes it’s just so annoying that people do that, judge something without knowing the full detail about it. that brings me to one thing i find very irritating…when people go to great lengths to dislike and say something is really bad and they have never actually done, watched or been in that situation before. Prejudiced much?

anyway, the other reason (apart from whining about school starting and judgmental humans) i came on and wrote this post was because i wanted you guys to check this out…

Robots

14 robots last time, 46 robots this time (ILM only)

If you had all the gold ever mined in the history of man, you could build a little more than half of Devastator.

Optimus Prime will be life size on IMAX screens in many forest fight shots.

Devastator’s hand is traveling 390 miles per hour when he punches the pyramid.

The pyramid destruction simulation was 8 times bigger than the old rigid simulation all-time record holder at ILM.

All robot parts laid out end to end would stretch from one side of California to the other, about 180 miles

Devastator’s parts stacked tip to tip would be as tall as 58 empire state buildings.

If all the texture maps on the show were printed on 1 square yard sheets, they would cover 13 football fields.

Disk space

TF1 took 20 Terabytes of disk space. Trans2 took 145 Terabytes. Seven times bigger!

145 terabytes would fill 35,000 DVDs. Stacked one on top of the other without storage cases, they would be 145 feet tall.

Rendering times

If you rendered the entire movie on a modern home PC, you would have had to start the renders 16,000 years ago (when cave paintings like the Hall of Bulls were being made) to finish for this year’s premiere!

A single imax shot in the movie (df250) would have taken almost 3 years to render on a top of the line home PC running nonstop.

IMAX frame render times: As high as 72 hours per frame!

Imax

Optimus Prime will be life size on IMAX screens in many forest fight shots.

Imax frames take about 6 times longer than anamorphic to render.

IMAX frame render times: As high as 72 hours per frame!

ILM screen time

ILM Screen Time is about 51 minutes.

Devastator

Devastator is as tall as a 10 story building.

Devastator has more than 10 times the number of individual parts found in an average car.

Laid out end to end, Devastator’s parts would be almost 14 miles long.

Devastator totals

Number of geom pieces: 52632

The total number of polygons: 11,716,127

The total length of all pieces: 73090 feet

The total length of all pieces: 13.84 miles

A bit of brain sore, that lot of facts. But hope you learned something! And once again, i would like to point out Transformers ROCK!!!

PS: Me and Alisha are gonna update the STORIES AND MORE page. So check it out and comment because these are stories we’ve written and it’s important to us that we get opinions in order to fix them up and improve. Thank you!  Rolllol, i think if i really smiled like that i would break my face and end up with a permenant grin…just like the joker!!! 


Michael’s nose MIA at autopsy

Michael Jackson’s nose was missing as he lay in state.

An eyewitness claims he saw the ‘Beat It’ singer’s body on an autopsy table of a Los Angeles morgue with part of his face completely disappeared.

The witness said: “The prosthesis he normally attached to his damaged nose was missing, revealing bits of cartilage surrounding a small dark hole.”

Jackson – who died a month ago today of a suspected cardiac arrest – was believed to have had a number of surgical operations change the shape of his nose, which eventually eroded it away. He was also thought to be obsessed with plastic surgery and altering his appearance.

The witness added: “Jackson’s face – which he had so painfully reworked and concealed from the public for decades now – lay out in the open undisguised under the harsh lights.”

One of the ‘King Of Pop’s former housekeepers has previously told how the singer kept a number of false noses, which he applied using plasters and glue.

Adrian McManus said: “In his closet he had a jar of fake noses and stage glue, which he told me he used for disguises. But some were similar to his real nose, just without the hole.”

Reasons for Jackson’s fascination with surgery are unclear, though he has hinted it was because he was bullied as a child. Other sources said he was desperate not to look like his father, Joe Jackson, whom he had accused of hitting him as a youngster and making fun of his appearance.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles police have named the pop legend’s personal doctor, Conrad Murray as a manslaughter suspect in a probe into the star’s death.

Although toxicology reports have not confirmed the exact cause of Jackson’s death, it is believed he had dangerous levels of intravenously administered anaesthetic drug Propofol in his body at the time of his passing.

Dr Murray was with the singer when he died and also made an attempt to revive him.

A warrant issued by police allowed officers to search Murray’s assets for: “Property or items constituting evidence of the offence of manslaughter that tend to show Dr Conrad Murray committed the said criminal offence.”

Murray denies involvement in the singer’s death.

Well there is only one thing i have to say about this article form Yahoo! Entertainment…have some respect for the deceased. Who really cares what he did in his free time with his nose and stage glue?  Facsinating, yes, but c’mon, it’s been a month since his death… and yes i do know i’m sounding pretty hypocritical here considering i put the article up, but only because i know there are heaps of MJ fans out there who would like to know this stuff-but also because i thought to make a point about what i think, and that is that the media needs to give it all a rest right about now. it’s major news and all but the family is in mourning and besides, the guy really deserves some respect, and it doesn’t make a difference about who he was or what he did with his life.


Prince Michael watched dad die

Michael Jackson’s eldest son was forced to watch his father die, the singer’s family have claimed.

The pop superstar’s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, allegedly made 12-year-old Prince Michael I watch his attempts to resuscitate him after he suffered a suspected cardiac arrest as he wanted a witness.

However, the Jackson family believe Michael had already been dead for at least two hours and Murray’s actions left Prince “understandably traumatised”.

Dr. Hoefflin, a family friend speaking on behalf of Michael’s mother Katherine, told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “I have been told by the family and from talking to the children that on the day Michael died, Dr. Murray actually got one of the Jackson children – it was Prince Michael I – to personally come into the bedroom to watch him perform CPR on his father.

“The family have told me Dr. Murray ensured Prince Michael understood the CPR procedure and that he was doing it correctly. It is the family’s belief that this was intended to show a member of Michael’s family that he was trying to bring Michael back to life.
“In my opinion Dr Murray should have known Michael was already dead and I believe that is the reason he didn’t move him from the bed to the harder surface of the floor to perform CPR.”

While Prince still struggles to come to terms with his father’s death his 11-year-old sister Paris is dealing with her grief by sleeping with a teddy bear her dad gave her.

Michael’s brother Jermaine said: “Paris sleeps with a teddy bear with Michael’s scent on – it’s so cute. It’s a little doll that he gave her and she sleeps holding it every night.”

Prince and Paris are also helping their younger brother, seven-year-old Prince Michael II, known as ‘Blanket’, come to terms with the loss of their beloved father.

Jermaine added: “I think ‘Blanket’ understands his dad has passed because of the ceremony we had. Prince and Paris are very bright and they have tried to explain it to him. And there is therapist with them to get through this time as well.”

Meanwhile, lawyers handling Michael’s estate are seeking a court-ordered allowance for his three children and mother Katherine.

A lawyer representing the temporary executors of his estate asked a judge to approve the allowance and the requests will be considered on August 3.


Demi Cutting Herself…Again?

Pictures have been surfacing of Demi Lovato, the sixteen-year-old singer and actress currently touring with American Idol 2008 runner-up David Archuleta, showing her with what appear to be wounds on her wrist similar to cutting scars. Is the starlet harming herself?

This isn’t the first time that Lovato has had to fight these rumors. Following her appearance at Miley Cyrus’s birthday party last fall, pictures showed Lovato with red marks on her wrist that made it look as though she had been self-mutilating. A representative for Lovato said, “Demi was wearing gummy bracelets just prior to her appearance on the red carpet and, because of how tight they were, they left indentations on her wrist.”

Just my personal opinion here so correct me if I’m wrong, but if they really were ‘indentations’ from ‘gummy bracelets’ then wouldn’t they go all the way around the wrist? In the pictures below, it’s hard to believe they are marks from super-tight bracelets. And considering it’s happened more than once I’m going to be bold here and put myself with the people who believe she is cutting herself.Oct 15 Mileys b-day party

Like Miley, Demi is a role model to a lot of young fans and if she really is cutting herself (one thing to understand here is that no one really  knows for sure-there are a lot of ifs here) then it’s best for her to get some help. It’s something many teenagers do to release stress and you don’t have to be an emo to be cutting yourself (that’s such a common stereotype). But let’s keep in mind that a starlet like herself is under a lot of pressure and stress. Just because she’s rich and popular does not mean she has no personal problems in her life. Forget her personal life, but just the pressure of being the most popular in the Disney world is enough to cause depression. Let’s not forget that she is human too and people make mistakes and they have different ways of dealing with them and I’m not trying to say it’s okay for people to harm themselves, I’m just saying that if that’s the way Demi decided to deal with her problems then that’s her choice. I think we can all grant her that much freedom and privacy.
