Ancient Greece once decided to get together and hold the Olympics every 4 years to celebrate achievements of the human body and sportsmanship. The games brought unity to pre-Christian Greece and probably indirectly provided for peace.

It's time to hold a similar one, except now, with weapons. Every year, each nation should send one General to the Pacific with an array of weapons.

Then all the generals get naked and pummel a random pacific island one after another, to show off their might. One big military exercise. The Indians can test their nukes, the Americans - their ballistic missiles, the Chinese - their latest fingertrap, and the Japanese will just sit tight, spending billions on defense but not firing a single useful shot.

Spectacle for the world! I get to watch an island raise a couple of feet and the war hawks soothe their nerves. There's no need for wondering when/if North Korea will launch a missile. Just wait! It'll be June 9th of next year, and the next and next..

So less than a week left before the fun begins. Yeah. Can't wait. What an interesting semester to look forward to. Back to Japanese, Antoniewicz, Thermodynamics.

It is almost dawn. I can hear the early morning battle cries, ready to do war.

I've been watching a bunch of Bond movies. One of the highlights, after the witty sayings* and Q, are the girls.

Most of them are pretty ugly.** I'll list the 5 best looking ones.

1. Kissy Suzuki.
Yeah you saw this coming. Don't complain.

2. Solitaire

There's something mystical and awesome about her prophetic powers, but this is before she started practicing medicine on the frontier and became ugly. Sigh.

3. Corinne Dufour:

You only see her for max.. 4 minutes. Watch carefully. French women yeauz!

4. Kara Milovy

Cellos rock. Also that one part, where they're passing into the Austrian border-

Bond: We have nothing to declare!
Kara: Excceppt Cellooo!!

That part is kickass.

5. Vesper Lynd
There is something about the contrast between the skin tone and the hair/lipstick that is particularly alluring.

Of course, there are really really really ugly ones. Some on purpose (like Mayday), some, I don't know what the hell happened. Virtually everyone in License to Kill is ugly, and I suppose Aki balances Suzuki out somehow.


*: Witty, because I can never see them coming, although its usually after someone dies.
**: Lack of clothes is... a bad thing in my book.

I'm back.. but not really.

Well after a short hiatus, I will resume. Lots of things happened when I was gone. Tony Blair is no more (PM), Brown takes his place, upgrading himself from Chancellor of the Exchequer to Prime Minister.

That made me think - How come we don't have kickass names like that? What does a 'Chancellor of the Exchequer' even do? Never mind, I don't really care. It sounds cool.

We're in a serious need for cool titles. What the hell is a comptroller? Yes, yes. The UK has comptrollers too, but probably none as ridiculous as this one:


You can't go from comptroller to governor! You should be chancellor of something first.

Maybe we need another Cold War to restore glamor and prestige back to the public office.

If you're wondering, I'm still off the grid. Don't contact me. I won't respond. See you guys when school starts.
