Thalydomide golf

If you're at all politically correct then best you surf elsewhere.

For years I have been taking the piss out of life by referring to the thalidomide golf championships. Ok, so I don't really mean it. OK. But the interesting this is that I've just seen a report on CNN which featured a golfer with no arms - like short ones - like uh huh - thalidomide pills for morning sickness short arms . I kid you not.

Thursday, April 05, 2007, physics was never my strong suit

It has come to my attention that acceleration, and not velocity, was what I should have been talking about in my previous post.

...will self destruct in 5 seconds...

Perhaps it's an indication of the increasingly increasing (velocity = meters per second per second)speed of our reality; even secret messages have a shorter half life these days.

I was watching Mission impossible III the other night and I noticed that Ethan's message went poof in 5 seconds as opposed to the original 30.

Jeez man. What happens if you get distracted. "Hey, what was the middle bit again?" There's no going back. And the bad guys are usually foreign, or something; with names like Rastapopopulous (apologies to Herge). Then what? Do secret agents go to memory school?

God help you if you're an old fashioned secret agent, used to the regulation 30 seconds, and you're a bit tardy in pulling the secret-message-containing-spy-lomo-miniature-camera away from your eyeballs? Oh, wait, I forgot - spy guys wear sun glasses, so it's ok.

I dunno.

We accept all major credit cards and currencies

Good god. The free wi-fi at Hong Kong airport is an absolute fuck-up. In typical fashion, the "you don't have to actually deliver; if you pay lip service, that's good enough" policy obviously applies.

Anyway, after an hour of fighting with the invisible chi of the Internet here, I have finally managed to connect.

Hong Kong is an expensive place. Either that, or KL is just cheap and I don't get paid nearly enough for my trouble.

It's also very fast moving. Or the people are. Or both. Which is refreshing.

And speaking of refreshing, the temperature was a temperate 17degrees celsius during the day and about 14 or 15 at night.

The cold weather was quite difficult to deal with after 2 and a half years living in a sauna. But nostalgic at the same time. Cold weather seems to smell different. Or maybe the air in Hong Kong is just cleaner than the air in KL. Probably the latter.

Enough of this.
