the kids aren't alright

Look, I'm as healthy as the next male. I of course can appreciate an attractive female. I mean, I can even look at a good looking dude and think, "OK, I'm just a bit envious" without the need to feel my gender preference compromised.

My Shiny Fruit Device (SFD) is great. It allows me to do many, many things. One of which is the ability to look for games that I can play without the need to have real people present.

So today, I jumped onto the interweb and looked for a "Big 2" game. In cantonese, it is called "Chaw Die Dee"

Except that "Sexy Pasties: Big Boob...." and "Abnormal Big Boobs" were not the titles I was hoping to find.

Mind you, I didn't look in the appstore proper. And when I did, I got better relevancy. However, it just goes to show that if an old man like me can find near porn so easily, how much easier is it for kids who should never have access to this sort of stuff.

I worry for our kids' future. There are some boxes which opened can never be closed. We've done it, and you know what? I don't think we're better as a society.

I'm easily impressed.

I was downloading a file from megaupload at 4:24AM EST. Check out my download speeds. Not bad at all!

I'm also sick as a dog. Since Sunday I've had a headache. Now I don't generally get headaches, but it started hurting. By Wednesday night, it was so bad I started throwing up and was dizzy. I was also getting the shakes and no matter what I did, could not warm up my feet. When the woman saw me, she said I looked like a potato. I corrected her - I was a fuzzy potato, on account of my movember moustache.

I succumbed to taking headache medicines, and took Thursday off. I felt better. I actually ate pizza for lunch.

However, by Thursday night, the headaches returned, as did the shakes, etc. I don't have a fever, I don't have a stuffy nose (although it is occasionally runny), and I don't feel like I've got a cold. All it is is this awful headache.

What about the losir luck? Glad you asked.

My health card expired and government offices don't open on Remembrance Day (Nov 11). So the only Thursday that mattered, I couldn't go and renew my health card to see a doctor.
