Cheating Bastards

Posted by jtsmyth8 on June 15, 2009

Surprise, surprise. Students, teachers, and others 34 in all arrested for cheating on the state exam. These students are competing for more than just test scores, they are competing for a way of life. Ace the exam and you live amongst the elite and corrupt. Nice cushy state jobs where you can start accepting bribes right away. I’m sure it’s not the first time nor will it be the last.

Have no fear. Those who fail miserably can go on to a life of additional cheating. Take for example the Chinese anti-porn software company. All you need to do is copy someone else. Steal the software, copy the code, and then re-brand it and sell it as your own. Then bribe your buddy in the government to make it mandatory on every pc sold. Then sit back and count the money. Hopefully the Americans won’t notice … oops.

Well there’s always the military.

More chikungunya cases reported

Posted by jtsmyth8 on August 13, 2008

The largest cluster of chikungunya cases in Singapore continues to grow.

Two more people have come down with the dengue-like disease at Kranji Way, bringing the total count to 30, the Health Ministry said on Wednesday.

They are a 48-year-old Indian national who works and lives at Kranji Way, and a 34-year-old Chinese national who has gone there several times.

Another three men have also been hit by the mosquito-borne disease at separate locations.

One is a 31-year-old Bangladeshi working at Sungei Kadut Street 6 and living at Sungei Kadut Street 1, the same street where a 40-year-old Chinese national came down with chikungunya more than a week ago. (story)

Ah Jie covers self only with purse

Posted by jtsmyth8 on June 27, 2008

I can’t see the good stuff, move the purse. I’m sure the photographer tried his best to get her as naked as possible. “I swear these photos won’t make it to the Internet” Boo! No boobies!

“With her modesty protected by a $50,000 Chanel leather clutch and a pair of jeans, MediaCorp artiste looks semi-nude as she posed for the cover shot in the latest issue of Chinese female magazine, Nuyou.

But there are some lines that even the well-respected veteran would not cross.

If you think she was not wearing a top in the picture, look again.” (story)

Stench turns out to be dead body

Posted by jtsmyth8 on June 17, 2008

You have got to be kidding me! A dead body in no way smells like rotting food. (not that I know what that smells like …) Come on! If something stinks, wouldn’t you complain to your room mate about it? Rather than let it stink for 3 days?! Gross! I don’t think I could live there after that.

“For three days, students Kid Wu, 22, and Stella Pan, 21, did not know they were living with a corpse.

They had detected a foul smell coming from their flatmate Jiang Ting’s room.

But they dismissed the odour as they thought it was rotting food.

Unknown to them, Miss Jiang, 22, a Chinese national, had been dead for a few days.

It was not until 7 Jun that the gruesome discovery was made, after Mr Wu and Miss Pan had tried to contact Miss Jiang to get her to pay her share of the utilities bill.” (story)

Chinese magazine exploits earthquake with sexy photos

Posted by jtsmyth8 on May 22, 2008

A Chinese magazine has been shut down for printing pictures of scantily-clad women posing in rubble for a special report on the country’s devastating earthquake, officials said on Wednesday.

The New Travel Weekly, a small lifestyle magazine, ran photos of sultry models in their underwear amid the debris in an issue that hit the stands on Monday – the first of three days of national mourning.

The press and publication department of the southwestern city of Chongqing, where the magazine was based, said it decided to close the magazine down for ‘rectification.’

The department said the magazine ‘seriously violated propaganda discipline and went against social morals’ and the report constituted an ‘extremely evil social influence.’

‘If the outcome of the rectification is satisfactory, it is possible to reopen the magazine,’ an employee of the press and publication department with the family name Cai told reporters.

‘After all, only part of the staff made the decision to print that shoot.

It wouldn’t be fair to just close it for good.’ (story)
