Several Battles (sports, policy, tv, financial, personal)

Congratulations to the UST Growling Tigers!
UAAP Season 69 Senior Men's Basketball Team Champs!

What a season for UST! I guess they just like doing it the hard way :) They had to beat UE twice in a row to get into the Championship round and they overcame that task. Game 1 of the Championship they lose to Ateneo by 1 point. They now had to beat Ateneo twice in a row to win the crown. And guess what? They did. What a season. Specially if you consider they almost didn't get pass the elimination round. This Cinderella team won't have to go home at the stroke of midnight, enjoy the party guys!

"Our Aim Is To Keep This Bathroom Clean. Gentlemen, your aim will help. Stand closer, it's shorter than you think. Ladies, please remain seated for the entire performance."

Following is an article from a Norwegian, Aftenposten, newspaper on October 2, 2006. It should serve as a warning for the boys:
Urination will go to committee
A local decision that schoolboys must sit on toilet seats when urinating has provoked political debate.

The head of The Democrats Party, a splinter group of former Progress Party hardliners, Vidar Kleppe, is outraged that boys at Dvergsnes School in Kristiansand have to sit and pee.

Kleppe accuses the school of fiddling with God's work, and wants the matter discussed at the executive committee level of the local council, newspaper Dagbladet reports.

"When boys are not allowed to pee in the natural way, the way boys have done for generations, it is meddling with God's work," Kleppe told the newspaper.

"It is a human right not to have to sit down like a girl," Kleppe said.

Principal Anne Lise Gjul at Dvergsnes School would not comment on Kleppe's plans to make political waves and regretted if anyone was offended by the ban on standing and passing water.

Gjul told NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting) that the young boys are simply not good enough at aiming, and the point was to have a pleasant toilet that could be used by both boys and girls.

I especially like the quote:
"It is a human right not to have to
sit down like a girl,"

I wasn't aware that the U.N. ratified such matters. But as a male, I have to say I'm glad it's in there. Of course, that doesn't mean I wave my right to pee sitting down. And yeah, I agree, sounded like they were quoting an eight year old boy "I don't want to sit down like a girl! I don't wanna get cooties!"

So boys be warned, improve your aim lest you be forced to "pass water" sitting down. Maybe instead of a ban they should consider issuing licenses. Once you've been certified to hav
e passed potty training, you are issued a license and you may pee standing up. Of course, a special action force will need to be assembled to regulate such training centers and enforce these toilet related laws. They can call themselves S.Q.U.A.T. (Special Quality Urination Action Team). Catchy huh?

Yey!!! Battlestar Galactica Season 3!!! Exclamation point, exclamation point, exclamation point!!! Odama kicks Cylon a**!

Final note: To my dear co-workers, we are screwed. I hope you find solace in the fact that George Michael is also screwed.
