NS cut by six months -from
I think many
Nsfs should be jumpin up and down with joy by now, celebrating the cut and
plannin their leave earlier....
hmm..lets see...1..2..3...less than a
8months to go...=)
The cuts, which
will also apply to full-time national servicemen in the police and civil
defence, are the first major changes to
NS duration since
1971, when training was reduced from 36 to 30 months for officers, and from 30
to 24 months for those below the rank of corporal.
Servicemen who enlisted between January 2002 and
last month will get a two-month cut and complete their NS no earlier than the
end of this month.
Getting a four-month reduction will be those who
enlist between this month and November this year.
The full six-month reduction will be for all new
recruits who enlist from December.
Servicemen who disrupt their training, usually
for studies, will get the same cuts as others in the same batch,
when they return to complete their training.
There will be no change for those who already
serve 24 months.(e unlucky few)
museum -from AFP-OFFBeat
SAINT PETERSBURG, Russia (AFP) - In a more innocent age, it was
said that Gregory Efimovich Rasputin's legendary power over women was due to his
But a new museum of erotica here suggests that the mad monk's charm may
instead have been, ahem, concealed beneath his cassock.
Measuring 28.5 centimeters (about 11 inches) -- allowing for shrinkage caused
by pickling -- Rasputin's penis displayed in a tall glass bottle is, to put it
delicately, a big attraction at the museum.
Director Igor Knyazkin said he bought the object from a French antiquitarian
for 8,000 dollars (6,600 euros), along with several of Rasputin's hand-written
It was not known if he had a certificate of authenticity for such a
Reputed both for his mysticism and his debauchery, Rasputin was a powerful
influence at the court of the Romanov Tsars.
Concerned about his unusual hold over the Empress Alexandra, a group of
aristocrats decided to kill him to save Russia.
They lured him to an assignation in 1916, fed him drugged cakes, shot him and
finally killed him by wrapping him in a carpet and throwing him into the frozen
The aura of sexual power and mysticism lives on. Some Russians think just by
staring at the object, they can cure sexual impotence.
One visitor asked Knyazkin if this is true.
"Without a shadow of doubt," he replied with a smile.
Knyazkin, 37, a urologist and sexologist, set up the museum in the clinic he
runs, partly with the aim of helping his patients overcome impotence. The
atmosphere of the museum makes patients "more optimistic and relaxed," he said.
"The aim of the doctor is to free his patient from anxiety and fears. Men who
come here are ill at ease because of their problems, and our light and happy
atmosphere reassures them."

How do we keep track of how much caffeine we are
Here's as example: If a 70kg person consumes 3 cups of
brewed coffee, his caffeine reading would be in the region of 3mg/kg body
Apart from coffee, what else contains caffeine?
Many drinks contain it. A cup of tea contains
A can of cola has 30mg.
A tube of sports gel, caffeinated, has
A cup of brewed coffee which has 45-85mg.
Whats is the danger of overdoing
About 3 to 6 cups of freshly brewed coffee or 3-6mg/kg
body weight for a 70kg person should be fine.
But this really depends on the individuals habitual
for example if someone who only drinks 1 cup in the
morning suddenly starts downing 6 cups before his morning run. he may experience
the reverse side effects rather that the benefits.
The side effects of overdosing on caffeine include
anxiety, jitters, insomnia, inability to focus, palpitations and stomach

She And Her Cat: Their Standing Points
(a.k.a. Kanojo to Kanojo no Neko)
An earlier independent work by Shinkai Makoto, the
creator of Hoshi no Koe.
Created in early summer 1999 using hand-drawn technique
combined with 3D Software and AfterEffects for composition.
The whole volume is colorless in order to reduce the
burden of machine and to speed up production process.
In this short animated work, Shinkai Makoto tried to
convey a small warmth, vague lonesomeness of living, faint feeling into image
One rainy spring day, She picked up Chobi, and he became Her cat.
He quickly grew to love Her because She was like a mother and a lover, kind
and beautiful all at once.
As the seasons pass, both Chobi and She become closer to one another as
they distance themselves from everything else.
