PacMan 1 Gravity 0

Disclaimer: Pls scan the .exe file first. You know me, I am paranoid.
Really bored to death? Don't play PacMan. Play PacMan Physics, despite it ironically defying logic.

I would say, it is like PacMan but is not PacMan.

You can't memorise patterns and because it also defies gravity, the ghosts float to catch you. So your PacMan has to gobble a power pill that switches on gravity (which points in a different direction each time) for a few seconds, allowing you to go into munching frenzy. Note: it will be crazy to try to eat the ghosts, as they will never turn a nice edible blue.

Top Eight Signs a Girl Likes You"

Disclaimer: Still updating this list, based on my and my friends' experiences. Note: this is not the top ten signs a girl wants to be f**ked by you. Just in case you are wondering. And it is best used on Asian chicks. Also read the tianya.cn article I posted, which I still think is a joke.

Before we start, I want you guys to understand this. The typical Asian chick may or may not be the shrinking violet, waiting to be wooed. But no matter what, she will not want to be the one who initiated the relationship, even if she did and it is the 22nd century already. She will make you think that you are the one who initiated it. She won't want to die of humiliation ten years down the road if you tell the kiddos that Mummy did the chasing.

(1) Super 20 Questions and More about You, to You
Trust me, any chick who digs you, will want to know EVERYTHING about you. How many girlfriends you had before (you should answer >=3 serious/not serious relationships. Don't say 1 or 0 unless you are (a) an honest guy. But remember: Nice guys last, in more ways than one. (b) you hate chicks, and want to die a virgin or gay (c) a loser who can't get over the one who got away. Don't worry, even if she is a shy and retiring chick (who is nowadays???), cos she will get her friends to find out for her, one way or another. Cos "knowing" things about you will help her to better "understand" you (or think she understands you).

She can be subtle or all out confrontational so as to cover signs that she is interested in you. But you will know she does, when she persists in asking you the same question in different shapes and forms over many days (to cover her tracks), if you don't answer her.

(2) She defends and praises you
Chicks are maternal. It is a blessing, it is a curse. It's reason why we can hear the baby at night and you continue or pretend to snore. Take it or leave it. If she perceives that someone is mean to you, good luck to that person.

(3) She is so god damn understanding (used most often by bitches out to steal men from other girls)
I don't believe in that "sa jiao" (cajoling and whining like a child) nonsense. That kind of crap only comes out after she nails you to the wall already. Before you are in a relationship, she will be like so damn understanding and benevolent, like Mother Theresa.

She *very worried*: why you look so sad these days?
You: I fought with my girlfriend. We haven't spoken in days.
She *comforting*: Oh dear, you poor thing. Why? What happened?
You: (say something really dumb that shows what kind of immature ass you are)
She: oh my god. how can she be like that? Especially when you are such a (lavish some undeserved praise on you). If you were my boyfriend, I would never do such a thing. She doesn't know how to appreciate you *sounding really indignant on your behalf (proving my point 2)*.

Just wait. Wait till she sinks her claws into you. She will be much much worse than your soon-to-be ex.

(4) She is happy, just looking at you
Note to the guys: this is not true for me and you, cos it's more because your freaking nostril hairs are poking out. For God's sake, go trim them already. And I mean Brocoli, Heeler and Cocker.
She will look at you when she thinks you are not looking at her. And look pretty darn happy about it, like you made her day. Enjoy that while it lasts.

(5) She notices you
You are just one of the guys in the group. But she will laugh at your jokes, or with you when no one will. To disprove that she just has a bad sense of humor (which of course you will not think so), check that she doesn't laugh at others' bad jokes. And she attempts to make conversation with you when you look lonely or bored, because she is worried you are not having a nice time.

(6) She gives you THOUGHTFUL gifts (this one I agree with the tianya.cn article)
It can be a cheap item that you just happen to need (and she notices and buys it before your lazy ass does), or something she made. One of the best ways to cover her tracks, would be to make the same gift for everyone in the group, but yours will definitely be different from the others in some non-obvious way.

(7) She tries to bond
She hates football, but she will read up on football just so that she can agree with you that Man U sucks shit this season and tell you very intelligently why they hoover that fecal material up. Dude, if there is any one time you can get your chick to do things YOU LIKE, this is the best time to inculcate the love of football/drinking/molesting your car every weekend/pool/Gym in her.
Another sign of bonding would be challenging/engaging you (depending on how perversive she is) whatever you say and trying to incite an (intelligent) debate. You will notice that she directs her questions and pointers at you even when other people are also in the discussion.

(8) She is always around
For you. Online. Offline. Everywhere. But not so obvious until you think she is a stalker or a persistent leech or burr. I hate Facebook, but I think if I were a chick who digs you, I would hang out on Facebook and make really stupid (while trying to be cute) comments on your photos, or "what are you doing now".

This is all I got for the time being. If you are a chick reading this, do give comments on this. It will be most helpful to all the lonely dudes out there I do believe. And also chicks, who are unwittingly sending the wrong signals out. >.<

How would you build your resume, according to Barney Stinson

Very relevant. In the light of the current economy. Not.

Think this is much more funny though.

We have a "Chuo University" style stabbing incident @ NTU too?!

Though, it was a NTU (also Electronic Engineering) professor, and it is the stabber, i.e. the student in this case, who is as dead as a doornail. *horrified*

"SINGAPORE: A Nanyang Technological University (NTU) spokesman had confirmed that a final year student from the School of Electrical and Electronics Engineering stabbed a professor Monday morning. The professor at the engineering faculty was in his office when the student stabbed him with a knife in the back. Prof Chan Kap Luk, a Singaporean and in his 40s, is said to be the supervisor of the fourth year student in a project. After stabbing, the male student, who was in his 20s, slit his wrists and jumped. His body was found at the bottom of a building at the engineering block, which was about five-storey high. He died from his injuries. Prof Chan received medical treatment for cuts and is in stable condition. " (ChannelNewsAsia, 2 Mar 2009)

Wanna bet with me that the prof flunked the student's FYP project, resulting in this terrible tragedy? I say this because this is coincidentally when the FYP supervisor approves the document for submission to the school for marking. Well, this is not the first time where a student's project is rejected (meaning either 0.5 or 1 year, i.e. decelerated degree) or he gets a shit ass grade, in NTU. I have plenty of friends, who get screwed this way, either Bachelors or Masters. Just imagine, you have honors, 5.0 CGPA, then because you disagreed with your prof, he f you by merely delaying your graduation? It will be as if you are an academic meteor suddenly crashing to earth, after being so damn high in the sky. From 1st class to pass degree??? I think I will go ballistic too, if it had been me. Luckily for everyone, I am such a lousy student.

This is why I always say, never fuck over your prof. You can fuck your FYP, but you cannot fuck the supervisor.

Given my morbid fascination with blood and gore, I am kinda disappointed I graduated last year. That sucks. Then again, what if that guy had decided to go all the way, and stab a classmate or two along the way? I can't run very fast.

Read on a AsiaOne comment that the guy is an Indon chinese, called David Hartanto Widjaja (online identity - tera_majin). Dude, that guy was online at 0212hours today. He also represented Indonesia in the International Mathematical Olympiad in 2005, and was president of the Electronic Sports Club (ESC) in 2006. (The club has now been overhauled and renamed as the NTU CyberGames Club).

I tried to dig through the unlucky professor, Chan Kap Luk's personal website - http://www3.ntu.edu.sg/home/eklchan/student.htm#master to ascertain whether that guy was really his FYP student. But like most of them, he only puts his Masters and PHD students on the site. However someone from EMDW has provided the link to the EEE FYP website. Yup, guess it is the guy. His project was "Multiview acquisition from Multi-camera configuration for person adaptive 3D Display".

Btw I was trying to figure out if David landed somewhere near where I usually parked. My mother thought that it was North Wing. I thought it was South Wing. Anyway it was S1. I just saw the pic.

What an unfortunate loss of life. Poor kid. Studied so much to come to uni, and then just because of a moment of anger and folly, decide to end his life this way.

Do pray for the kid and his poor family. They must be devastated.

Think this incident just reinforces the fact that undergraduates are the lowest lifeform in the academic hierarchy in NTU. The prof is like the King of the realm (i.e. the research lab), the PHD student his lord who instructs his farmers (Masters), who then inflict pain on the minions (Undergrads).

Updated Again!!!
According to the Straits Times and Shin Min Daily News (offline), David's ASEAN scholarship (required to maintain a CGPA of at least 3.5) was terminated two weeks before the incident. He had received four warnings since Year 3. He had become addicted to gaming and his CGPA could have dropped past 3.0. David would still have been able to graduate despite his poor results, as the school had recommended him alternative means of funding to finish his study. He was invited to meet with the school counselor and his mentor, but he did not do so. He also kept his family in the dark about his problems when he returned home for CNY celebration in January.
