I was tagged by my friend Fast_HacKing to post 5 things that people don't know about me. So here are the rules:
1- List down 5 things people probably didn't know about you
2- Tag atleast three people

Okay let's do this thing. It's a bit hard to think of 5 things that people don't know about me though but here we go:

1. I don't know how to: swim, ride a bike, ride a roller skater or a scooter.
2. I'm a loud person, specially when I get excited. My sound waves are very annoying, like one second it's normal and the next you get a wave that nearly pierces your ears (that maybe an exaggeration but it's annoying).
3. I am great when it comes to telling someone about a tv show or a movie that I've seen. With all the details, and I get very expressive and my friends have said that they feel like they've seen it themselves. (Honest! No bragging!)
4. I'm always the last one to get a joke. After a joke is told I'm always like 'Huh what does that mean?'
5. I used to cry when I lost half a mark at school, yeah I know what was I thinking? But I mean that was a few years back, I don't do that anymore :D

I'm tagging Ashok and Victoria!

The Shoes Incident

I'm sure all of you by now have seen or heard the shoes incident. Most of the reactions I've heard were that people are happy (that is indeed an understatement, ecstatic is more like it) about the incident.
I just have to blog about this and say what I feel about it. I really think the journalist shouldn't have done that. I mean if he hates Bush so much, is that how he thinks he should express his feelings? Throwing his pair of shoes is highly impolite and uncivil. It's not just because Bush is a president, it's because he's human.
Come on, really is that the way to express our feelings and stand up for what we think? It saddens me to see this man's resort to convey his feelings, and I was very upset to hear about it and see it.

It just says that we blame Bush for everything happening in Iraq now. The blaming game should have been over by now. The Iraqi government is doing so well, and they're doing their best to improve the country. What did that reporter gain by doing that? Oh yes, he gained the love of many people in the world just because they hate Bush, and I've heard that many channels want to get him to work for them, and in a town in Iraq people went out cheering for him because they were happy for what that man did. He's sending a very negative image about the Iraqi reporters because now it will be generalized on all of them, and a negative image of the Iraqi people.
I don't know what you think, but I highly disapprove of what happened. I'd love to hear your feedback on it though.
