Anyway that stupidity aside, now that I finally got a new desktop I got to install the wonderful game of Oblivion. It is probably has the best graphics for a PC game to date (although this is about to change now that the next-gen graphics cards and games are out), and a mere look at the screenshot below would speak for itself. Try to imagine this world in motion, with rain and snow and hail even! Good grief. It plays realistically as well – you can’t pick up just any item you see or it will be considered theft. You WILL be jailed and pay a fine, and if you resist you gotta fight the guards and stuff. It is unbelievable and big since the whole thing is just open to you to explore from the get-go.
Those aside, my visa is finally out, so I would probably be trying to get my hands on this
Pray for me :D
There are many similar stories, but most of them involve sex. For example, many families in Jordan, Syria and Palestine are ready to kill their daughters if they had sex. While understandably it is a big issue, my main point is that why are the families selfish enough that they would cheapen the price tag on their daughters to the extent that they would kill them for having sex?
Personally I think that families should accept the responsibility of having such a son or daughter and try to solve the issue internally and publicly. Simply killing the person in question off would not alleviate the shame, in my opinion, simply because the act is already done and the issue can be solved in a marriage cover-up.
I am not saying that I support all the sex and drinking in the universe, but things DO happen, accidentally or otherwise, and if the solution is killing off people, there wouldn’t really be a lot of people left in the world. Plus, it really is not to the family’s credit to kill of people for misbehaving.
So what do you think?
Apparently, when a cigarrette is lit, the fumes produced contain about some 200 chemicals – only 20% of which are inhaled by the smoker and the rest probably by everyone else in the room. Yup, that’s us non-smokers.
Some of the chemicals contained in the fumes include:
Carbon monoxide (found in car exhausts)
Arsenic (rat poison)
Ammonia (window cleaner)
Acetone (nail polisher)
Hydrogen cyanide (gas chamber poison)
Napthaline (your grandma’s mothballs)
Sulphur (math stick – yellow flames)
Formaldehyde (embalming fluid)
Butane (lighter liquid)
And I thought I was healthy!
