Can a Jedi lightsaber cut through Superman? Short Answer: No

I love Yahoo Answers, only because they have tons of stupid questions such as "Can a Jedi lightsaber cut through Superman?" and great answers from people who really know their stuff. From Yahoo Answers:
Superman receives his power from the radiation of our yellow sun, and is weakened when exposed to radiation from a red sun. It is possible that a sith lightsaber, being red, might have similar properties.

Even so, Superboy Prime was defeated after being plunged through Krypton's red sun - which weakened him, but did not destroy him. Therefore, a red lightsaber which hypothetically had the same properties as a red star should have a similar effect, i.e. it would injure him, but not "cut" him, much less cut through him.

If Superman were rendered vulnerable by a lightsaber, it would likely create a momentary weakness in that spot, allowing the physical impact to cause damage. However, lightsaber blades, being made of plasma, presumably have a very small mass. Therefore, the force of the impact would be negligible.

In short, hitting Superman with a red lightsaber is like hitting a normal human with a wet noodle.

Microsoft Support tells us to keep moving the mouse!


The problem: When you try to return data from Microsoft Query 97 to a Microsoft Excel 97 worksheet, the spinning globe icon (which signifies that a query is processing) may appear for a long time, and then the query returns no data to your worksheet.

So what do you do? Well, you go to Microsoft's online support to get some answer of course and you come across a method (see Method 2) to work around the problem. Ok. Are you ready for the solution? Here it is: If you move your mouse pointer continuously while the data is being returned to Microsoft Excel, the query may not fail. Do not stop moving the mouse until all the data has been returned to Microsoft Excel.

Keep moving your mouse pointer! Brilliant! Or is this the worst workaround ever? Apparently, according to some folks at Reddit who has experienced the miracle of the moving mouse, it is indeed a valid workaround for various software products, not just Microsoft.

Is Mediacorp humiliating local actors in its new Just for Laughs TV show?


Brendon Fernandez, a Singaporean actor was unhappy with the tactics used by Mediacorp to lure local actors to "star" in its Asian version of Just For Laughs. He says, "Mediacorp has been calling up actors and making appointments with them to attend an audition at Mediacorp for an English-language project which has been described as a still in development drama-dy. This is in fact completely disingenuous."

He describes the fake audition process, "In the account that I heard from an actor who attended the audition on 25 May 2009, the waiting time was in excess of an hour and a half past the scheduled appointment time. When the auditionee is finally ushered into the area in which the audition is supposed to take place, he or she is given several forms to fill out. The area is reported to resemble a badly-constructed mock up of a tv-set. The auditionee will be left alone in the room."

"After some time has passed, the auditionee will hear a knock that appears to come from inside the wardrobe that is on the set. There will also be a voice of someone claiming to be locked in the wardrobe, asking the auditionee to let them out. When the auditionee opens the wardrobe, it will be empty. The crew then bursts out from hiding and shouts: Surprise! You’re on Just For Laughs- Gags!"

Brandon feels that what Mediacorp did was humiliating to the actors. "I was saddened and angered to learn that this is how Mediacorp treats working actors today," he says. "This was a deliberately concocted scheme to lure professional actors into a humiliating trap. The people who attended devoted their time and their skills in preparation for what they believed to be an audition for a role in a professional TV series. Some may have given up other opportunities for work in order to attend. These actors responded in good faith to what they thought was an opportunity for work, and they were treated abysmally."

Our friends up north in KL sure knows how to party man, judging from these pics that have been circulating all over the internet. I got them from an email with the subject: "The wild party in KL Action in Bangsar Mulu Club (KL)." Some party there alright. Can anyone tell me what is this about? And why am I not invited huh?

Check out the 25 shocking pics here which I tried my very best to censor.

The Internet in 1969 vs now: No difference. Husbands still have to pay for wives' expenditures.

This 1969 video imagines how the internet would look like. It's amazing that the things mentioned in the video are all available now in one form or another. I like the part when the commentator says "what the wife selects on her console will be paid for by the husband at his counterpart console" and then the husband bites his finger and shakes his head. Poor husbands. Damn internet!

They look like regular D size batteries but you can forget about using them to power your electronics. They are actually Salt and Pepper shakers made of stainless steel and glass. I love the power indicators on the sides that show you the amount of salt or pepper that is left in the shakers.

American Idol Live!


I was covering the American Idol Finale live on my Twitter. For those of you who missed it, here are the tweets:

-Ladies and gentlemen, I can't believe I'm watching TV this early in the morning but this is... American Idol!!!! Live!

-Based on the scoops last night, it looks like Kris Allen will beat Adam Lambert. Don't know why I'm still watching.

-100 million votes last night for both Kris Allen and Adam Lambert.

-Ryan Seacrest is introducing the Idol judges now with very funny snippets of their judging style.

-Adam Lambert and Kris Allen take the stage! Both in all white, very PAP like.

-The American Idol Top 13 sings So What! All of them in all white!

-Last year's American Idol winner David Cook is singing now! Woohoo! I love David Cook!!!!

-This new single sang by David Cook is actually very nice. Love seeing him again on Idol. I was crazy over Cook last year. Glad that he won.

-David Cook is giving up the title tonight. Says both Adam and Kris are great performers.

-It's the Golden Idol Awards time now. Ryan is presenting awards to those Idol contestants who didn't make it.

-Nominees for Outstanding Male. Hahaha! Showing this guy who is singing this terrible rendition of Mad World.

-This is the funny part of the Idol Finale where we can laugh at the past contestants this year that are really really really terrible.

-The winner for Outstanding Male is Nick Mitchell. Remember him?

-Oh my god. he just stripped on stage!! And is singing now.

-It's time for the first duet of the evening. Lil and Queen Latifah!

-Paula Abdul is always looking happy during performances and dances along. I really like to have the drug she's taking.

-Jason Mraz, Anoosh and Alexis doing a threesome on stage now.

-Showing the journey of Kris Allen. It's amazing how this dude grows stronger and stronger throughout the competition.

-Kris Allen is singing a duet with country music star Keith Urban. Both with their guitars.

-Not bad. Actually Kris Allen should consider doing country music. LOL. Or better yet do Gospel songs.

-The 5 female Idols, Alexis, Allison, Jasmine, Lil and Megan are performing now with Fergie!

-Black Eyed Peas takes the stage!

-Golden Idol Awards again. Saluting the contestants who have the best attitude.

-And the Golden Idol goes to Katrina, the bikini clad contestant! Yay! Her bod is stunning! Esp those fake boobs.

-Katrina is wearing her bikini and singing on stage. Wait. Idol judge Cara joins her, with her clothes still on, of course.

-Oh my god. Idol judge Cara just ripped apart her dress after the song to reveal her black bra and panties!!!

-Allison sings Time After Time with Cyndi Lauper. I actually love Allison. Her voice rocks and the red hair!

-I can't believe that I'm seeing Cyndi Lauper on Idol. Sorry, I didn't know she's still around.

-But seriously, that's a very good performance by Cyndi Lauper and Allison.

-Ryan Seacrest is talking to Kris Allen's parents. Dad says thanks to America for voting for his son.

-Now Ryan is talking to Adam Lambert's parents.

-Danny Gokey is singing Hello. Ha! I'm guessing Lionel Ritchie will step out soon.

-And yes, what did I just say? Lionel Ritchie is indeed on stage!!! Joins Danny.

-BTW, no one sings Hello like David Cook. They should make Cook sing it with Lionel.

-Lionel Richie doesn't look like he has aged. Botox? Plastics? Lots of sex?

-Now showing Adam Lambert's journey on Idol. I'm loving Adam more than David Cook. And I really was crazy for David last year.

-Adam Lambert takes the stage. Gosh what is he wearing?!

-Looks like Adam is wearing for some musical. Oh wait. Kiss just joined him on stage. Adam and Kiss. Now that's something!

-Adam actually looks quite good with the crazy Kiss guys. I think he should put on the Kiss face make up.

-Would I pay to see Kris in concert? No. Would I pay to see Adam? Yes. Coz he knows how to entertain n he got the pipes too.

- Guitar legend Carlos Santana is on stage. With his guitar, what else. Matt Giraud sings along. The rest of the guys and girls join in the fun too.

-Hahaha! Steve Martin plays the ukelele. Michael Sarver and Megan both singing. Ooops that's not an ukelele. It's a banjo.

-Steve Martin thinks that he will win Idol tonight. Hahaha! Amazing that he actually has a music album out.

-Ah, the guys wearing nice black suits, tie with white t-shirts, take the stage now. I'm digging Anoosh's face hair.

-Oh my god! It's Rod Steward!!!! He doesn't like the Idols to be sharing the stage with him. Shoos them away. Ha!

-Last Golden Idol of the evening. Nominees for outstanding female. haha! Time to laugh at these poor girls!

-Tatiana won Outstanding Female. Runs up to the stage. Ryan tells her its time for a break. She insists on singing. All staged.

-Adam Lambert and Kris Allen do the Queen number, We Are the Champions with Queen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-Hmmm isn't Queen looking for a lead singer? Adam Lambert should fit in very well.

-Kris and Adam on stage, together. Results soon! Simon says both are brilliant, nice people, future is all theirs.

-And the new American Idol is..... Kris Allen! What did I tell you? I was right. My info was 100% spot on!

-They are giving him the new American Idol trophy. So I'm correct. The Anti Gays, Christian fanatics have voted Kris to win.

-The new American Idol Kris Allen sings the very crappy winner's song. Paula doesn't look so happy.

So, Kris Allen is the new American Idol. Does he deserved it? I don't think so. Adam has been the top dog throughout the competition and for him to lose it at the very end is just totally unfair. Anyway, I first broke the news that Kris has won Idol some 13 hours ago on Twitter. Here are some of the interesting tweets last night about that breaking news:

-BREAKING NEWS! I've been told that someone who works for Idol confirms that Kris Allen has won American Idol. Fuck! No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-BREAKING! Source confirms that only a couple of tens of thousands votes separate both Kris and Adam. Kris won Idol by a very slim margin.

-BREAKING! Same source also confirms that Kris did lead in previous rounds and that they did not "fake it" by putting Adam near the bottom.

-My source, the "Idol staff" has not replied to my messages. Hopefully he will not get fired for letting me know the result.

-Kris Allen seemed to consistently beat Adam Lambert by that slim margin for the first two hours of voting.

-Pastor tells everyone to vote for Kris because he is a believer and he comes from a great ministry. WTF!

-Anti Gays, Christian fanatics, Danny Gokey fans are all voting for Kris Allen. No wonder Adam loses by slim margin.

-Don't believe me that Christians are assembling their army to vote for Kris Allen? Here's another pastor rallying.

-First the Christian fanatics tried to take over pro-gay AWARE, now they are taking over Idol to make sure Gaybert doesn't win.

Risk Reinvention Board Game: A Review

It takes nerve. It takes determination. It takes courage. It's the new Risk board game by Hasbro! Risk Reinvention is an updated version to celebrate Risk's 50th anniversary. It features a new look and modernized rules. I had a chance to play the new Risk together and the new Monopoly Deal (thanks to Hasbro) with my mates recently and we had a blast!

Inside the box, you'll find the updated gameboard, a deck of 42 territory cards, all-new playing pieces that include 5 capitals, 15 cities and 5 sets of coloured units, 7 dice, objective cards and instructions. The instructions are a little complicated but just like Monopoly Deal, you'll learn more as you play the game.

There are three ways to play the new Risk: Basic Training, Command Room and World Conquest. Basic Training is a quick and easy way to play and designed as an introductory version of Risk. It is highly advisable to play this version until you are comfortable with the rules, then you can move on to the Command Room and World Conquest versions.

I actually love the new Risk and my mates too. The updated rules are great and allow players to streamline planning and executing strategic military campaigns and increase the rewards of taking risks during each turn. Game time is fast and furious. One can win the game in less than an hour. Like Monopoly Deal, Hasbro has done it again by taking a classic game and actually made it better.

Risk Reinvention is available at all leading toy and departmental stores at an approximate retail price of S$64.90. Is it worth buying? A 100% yes for Risk fans! Other board game lovers should have it in their collection too. More pics here.

Microsoft names research project Cibai, women all over the world feels liberated!


Of all the names in the world that Francesco Logozzo can think of for his research project at Microsoft, he comes up with the epic word, Cibai. What is Cibai? Here. I think someone needs to tell Francesco or Microsoft what it really means. Don't want them to start producing their Cibai t-shirts and merchandise.

Check out this excerpt from his Cibai research paper (PDF): "The next step in the development of Cibai is the generation of method summaries: we plan to apply Cibai on the Java API so to generate stubs, and then to reuse these stubs when analyzing large programs." Apply Cibai on Java to get stubs then reuse stubs on large programs? Huh? I didn't know Cibai is so complicated.

Update: Cibai has exploded on Twitter. Here are some funny Cibai Tweets:
mrbrown: Dear USA tweeters. Let Singapore teach you the real #cibai. CIBAI is actually a warm Asian greeting. Try it the next time you meet someone!
weirdnotion: I've got so many friends who already own #cibai. You're not gonna make a profit, Microsoft!
starstreet: My friend just said: My CIBAI got virus!! Oh god the jokes won't stop coming. Coming, get it? Coming...?
misskely: Damn Cibai is so complicated? Fear not, maybe they'll publish a manual: Tools and Shortcuts to cibai.

And lastly two of mine:
izreloaded: Friend asked if I tried Cibai before. I said which one? Microsoft Cibai, not yet. Too complicated. I prefer my Cibai to be less complicated.
izreloaded: I've been talking about Cibai non stop for more than two hours already. Think I got the Cibailitis. It's highly infectious.

Nasi Lemak! Nasi Lemak! Nasi Lemak! Enough already!

Since everyone is talking about the ads that are showing up on TV and the web, I thought I should do an extended version of their Nasi Lemak ad for those of you who can't get enough of, yes you guessed it, Nasi Lemak. Watch the video above.

DK says it best in a comment left on my YouTube video page: "Brilliant! Someone please play this youtube video at the person who approved the stupid inSing ads. Repeat the video until he decides to pulls it down from CNA (Channel News Asia)."
