A love song for math geeks



Excerpt of lyrics:

The path of love is never smooth
But mine's continuous for you
You're the upper bound in the chains of my heart
You're my Axiom of Choice, you know it's true
..
I've proved my proposition now, as you can see,
So let's both be associative and free
And by corollary, this shows you and I to be
Purely inseparable. Q. E. D.

Just thought of a great Facebook app!

Wouldn't it be great if there was a Facebook application that lets you track the things that you have lent to people (money, CDs, DVDs, anything)? You can link to the person's facebook profile so that you can just message them directly from the application when you want it back. You can even include the date by which they should return it as well and notify them when the date has been reached.

What do you think? I couldn't find anything of that sort on Facebook just now.
I would call it the Facebook "Lending Tracker"!

D & G Ad promotes gang rape?



D & G's latest ad is causing a lot of controversy - people are calling it extremely distasteful as it seems to depict a gang rape. I can see where they are coming from, you got a dude pinning down a girl while 3 other men look on. And the girl doesn't seem like she's having a ball of a time.

I don't think that it was their intention to make it seem that way, but then again God knows what they were trying to sell with this concept. If it was me, I would have switched it around and replaced the guys with women and vice versa, that would have made it pretty cool!

What say you?

Hot tennis ballgirls.



Hugo Boss are employing hot models to serve as ballgirls in the upcoming Madrid Masters in Spain.

When asked at the press conference whether their actions could be viewed as sexist, a spokesperson retorted that the girls were not hired based on their looks, but for their expertise and vast experience in handling balls.

Gay marriages should never happen or we are screwed (not literally)

Yes I been following the recent heated debate over the petition to abolish the law against homosexual intercourse. I been on the fence till now, it's time I make my voice heard against this horrid initiative.

I mean if now you let them have sex, then what's next, letting them get married? It's insane, where we do we draw the freaking line I ask you. But anyway I don't need to convince you, here is a page that makes it really clear to anyone with half a brain as to why gay marriage should NEVER be allowed to happen:

Stuff I ate in Taiwan

K so a quick overview of my Taiwan trip last week. It was my 2nd trip and the language barrier is still sucky, but on the upside I gotta try some pretty cool food.



Yup makes your mouth water doesn't it? It's supposed to be some sort of dessert, we had it after dinner. Basically it consists of mystery meat and some gelatinous stuff. Thank God the portion was small, I managed to finish it in 2 gulps, and refused a second helping.



These are century eggs, in a "mixture of clay, ash, salt, lime, and rice straw for several weeks to several months". That's what it says at Wikipedia. I had it in Singapore before with porridge but never liked the taste, but these were surprisingly good. Nice presentation as well.



Again not too sure where this came from, but I'm guessing it's pork with cucumber strips. The sauces are peanut and chilli, and again it tasted way better than it looks. But I wonder, why the need for the little wooden stand for the meat?



We went to a restaurant famous for its crabs (hell they even had a story about crabs on their wall), and I don't like crabs. The irony. The rest seemed to enjoy them a lot though.



Oh and I have to so rave about this! It's the new entertainment system on Singapore Airlines. So cool right, it's a much bigger screen than the old one, comes with loads more movies/tv series and even has a virtual PC that allows you to edit your Powerpoint/Word/Excel docs that you can upload via a USB port although I haven't tested it.

I spend the whole flight watching the comedy series channel, was practically laughing out loud half the time. So cool right? And the business class seats were even more amazing, it's like a private cubicle for each person. Not that I am gonna sit there anytime soon.

I don't really like Arcade Fire (Is that wrong?)

Yeah will be in Taiwan for the following week. I try not to ask what is served for lunch and/or dinner but so far I know that I have tried pig's innards (way too chewy for my liking) and pig's ears (not that bad actually). Should have taken pictures but I totally forgot. Will try and post some tomorrow!

K you know how I was saying I might be going to Perth with Su? That might not happen, mainly because she's completely INHUMANE. I was telling her in the most polite way possible how I didn't really find Arcade Fire to my liking, that their music was a tad too depressing for my tastes (two of the band members lost family members recently and it inspired their album "Funeral"). After which I apologized for not liking the band even though I really wanted to, because I knew it was one of her favorite bands.

And can you guess how did she repay my sensitivity and kindness? I....I don't even know if I can repeat the words here, they were so hateful...Fine I will. She told me that the band was amazing and the only way I would appreciate them if I had family members who died. I looked at her with shock and disbelief - did she actually curse my family to death?

I thought to myself that maybe I had heard it wrongly, so I asked her very politely to repeat it. She repeated the same words again, but this time she gave this evil cackling laugh that chilled my blood and made me certain that she really meant those words, there was no mistake.

I mean if she specifically mentioned my dad it would be fairly acceptable, cos dad seems to be coming down with dementia or mad cow disease, he's always grumpy these days and really annoying to be around. So a quick (cursed) death would really brighten the mood around the house. But all my other family members are perfectly fine, how dare she!!

So yeah not sure if I will be still be going to Perth with her. Things seem to be way beyond repair at this stage.

Homogenic Evil Empire

Guess who is going to see Rage Against the Machine and Bjork live in Perth in February? That's right, ME baby ME! Oh ya there will be Arcade Fire performing as well but I ain't really into them. But man RATM, I can't wait to see them!!

I will be heading down there with Su, it will be just the two of us.
Tried to get other friends to join, but they gave a range of excuses that were really annoying. Like "my dad just lost his job" or "I need to save up to study abroad next year" or "I don't earn that much, it's too expensive for me".

Like seriously people where are your priorities, it's just a couple of grand that we are talking here at the most, and it's RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE. Your family won't starve just because you are away for the weekend, and it will probably motivate your dad to go out and find a job sooner, seeing how his kid is out there enjoying herself. And really, you can always go abroad to study the year later if you don't have enough next year, like DUH.

And if you aren't earning enough, then maybe you should ask yourself what kind of life you are leading if you can't even afford to go see a concert in another country. Is such a life really worth living? (that's a rhetorical question, the answer is NO.)

So yes it will be just me and Su, which to be completely honest is making me a bit worried. No don't get me wrong, she's nice and everything, but I have seen the way she looks at me when she thinks I am not looking. Being a gentleman I will not say anymore, but let's just say that the girl looks like she really wants to try out horse riding, If you know what I mean. Damn my bloody stallion pheromones that are constantly emitting from my body, it's really not her fault. But no I will not break my 3 year celibacy vow, will get separate hotel rooms if I have to.

Have to thank the really beautiful and completely amazing Natasha for agreeing to get the tickets and pass them to me when they arrive. Natasha, you would totally complete me if I was missing some body part, that's how much you mean to me. Thanks Darling. Now to get the flight tickets and settle the accommodation. Perth, here we come!

To Su: Regarding the hymen incident.

I, Gilbert Thomas aka Indian Stallion, hereby apologize to Su for using her "hymen of hyperspace", without crediting her first. It was wrong of me to do that. I really felt that because she put her hymen out there for everyone to see that it became free for anyone to use, but after the threat of litigation I saw the light and now realize I was in the wrong.

I am never touching any hymen or hymen-related stuff from now on. I promise.

Again, you have my deepest apologies Su. :

Some people are so sad

I think you all remember my heart-wrenching post about my childhood a few weeks ago. Apparently quite a few of you were moved to tears after reading it. Well I'm glad I am able to share that part of my life with you, it was not easy for me. In a way, I let you guys break through my hymen of hyperspace. It was painful at first, but in the end it was worth it.

But unfortunately not everyone was as moved. There were two people who tried to destroy my achievement in Facebook Tetris by actually TRYING to beat me. How sad they are. Do they not know that I am and forever will be the king of Facebook Tetris? How can they hope to beat me when they have not gone through the same hardship as I have? I just don't get it.

But nevertheless they still tried and one even did beat my score. But of course his joy was short-lived, I topped his score again yesterday. Using only one hand. While jerking off with the other. Just because I can. But I feel that these two pretenders need to be shamed for even daring to beat the king. So here they are:





K I removed their names and pictures for the sake of preserving their dignity. Yes Gilbert, despite being the ultimate Facebook Tetris King, is still compassionate.

Oh and for those who play S-TRIS 2 (Tetris for Symbian), check out no. 45 at this page. Yes that's me!

p.s. Yes I know this post basically killed off any chance of me getting laid over the next 2 years, but it was worth it!

Why I love facebook Part 3

It lets me express my creative side. Here's a painting I drew for a friend of mine using Superwall's Graffiti function. It took me like an hour but I wanted to make sure it was as realistic as possible, they don't call me a perfectionist for nothing! It's my interpretation of the struggle that she faces in her life, very artistic hor? Name removed for privacy.

Why I love facebook: Reason No. 2


It allows me to pretend to be someone that I could never be in real life.
