    Tea Articles: Stand Up For Your Rights!

    Interesting featured article by Eric Meyer at ThinkVitamin.

    “So you want to be a farmer, eh? Farming ain’t easy, boy, but it’s honest work and it puts food on the table. How much do you know about it?”

    “Not much, but I’d like to get started right away.”

    “I like your attitude, boy! Ever had a garden?”

    “No. Never really wanted one.”

    “Hm. Well, maybe I could start you plantin’ some corn. That ain’t too hard, and it’s good for learnin’ how to put the seeds in right, plus I could take the time to cover some of the basics about weather signs.”

    “What are you talking about? I don’t want to plant seeds or hear about the weather, of all things. I want to be a farmer.”

    “You all there in the head, boy? How else do you plan to grow food, if you don’t plant seeds and keep the fields watered and fertilized? How do you expect to have your crops make it without knowin’ about the weather?”

    “Why would I want to dig in the dirt or listen to boring lectures about meteorology, when all I want is to be a farmer?”

    Just a workplace humor.

    Memo from CEO to Manager:
    Today at 11 o’clock there will be a total eclipse of the sun. This is when the sun disappears behind the moon for two minutes. As this is something that cannot be seen everyday, time will be allowed for employees to view the eclipse in the parking lot. Staff should meet in the lot at ten to eleven, when I will deliver a short speech introducing the eclipse, and giving some background information. Safty googles will be made available at a small cost.

    Memo from Manager to Department Head:
    Today at ten to eleven, all staff should meet in the car park. This will be followed by a total eclipse of the sun, which will appear for two minutes. For a moderate cost, this will be made safe with goggles. The CEO will deliver a short speech beforehand to give us all some information. This is not something that can be seen everyday.

    Memo from Department Head to Floor Manager:
    The CEO will today deliver a short speech to make the sun disappear for two minutes in the form of an eclipse. This is something that cannot be seen everyday, so staff will meet in the car park at ten or eleven. This will be safe, if you pay a moderate cost.

    Memo from Floor Manager to Supervisor:
    Ten or eleven staff are to go to the car park, where the CEO will eclipse the sun for two minutes. This doesn’t happen every day. It will be safe, and as usual it will cost you.

    Memo from Supervisor to staff:
    Some staff will go to the car park today to see the CEO disappear. It is a pity this doesn’t happen everyday.

  • Dying Inspirations

    It’s all because of Ma Moe and her ideas. :P
    I’ll try my best to follow along. I’ll write Burmese and English or mix verses every week.
    I’m no poet nor I a writer, so bear with me.

    Dying Inspirations

    Other day Ma Moe said,
    For me to write a poem every night,
    I said, “Oh ma, how can I!”,
    “For I, not know a poem”.
    She said “May you Do or Die”,
    “Cos’ I can glare from a thousand miles”.

    I begged and dragged and made a bribe,
    To write a poem every forth-night.
    We settled with our scores,
    To have it on weekly chores,

    So I scratch and scrub and start to track,
    To see how my smart arse progress.
    Then my bro came and said,
    Are you crazy, what a crap,
    That doesn’t make a single sense.

    I said, “What you! Don’t be a slime,”
    “Give yourself a simple try, to make it a better rhyme.”
    But I know he doesn’t care,
    He thinks poems are dull as squares.

    So here on Mayvelous I shall scream,
    To regain my dying inspirations.
    And I stare, glare, flair and share the rhythm,
    With a little tag for Sarnil and Jason.

    Tagging You: Criers, 99Sanay, CMS, N3, Sarnil, Jason

    No nah nah not me! Ma Moe started it!!! :D

    Regarding 1337

    A friend of mine said something about me being 1337 and I was confused by his usage. My first thought was he calling me old, or some kind of centuries beings. So I simply asked him what that means and he forwarded me this interesting wiki article on 1337 – leet. After reading it, then only I know he was complimenting me(I think). What an idiot I am.
    The article was a good read and I learnt lots of new terms from it so here I am sharing with you. May be you already know about it but for those who don’t know can take note of it.

    Leet (or 1337, l33t, l33+, etc, derived from the word “Elite”) is a linguistic phenomenon associated with the underground culture centered on telecommunications, manifested primarily on the Internet, and is especially prevalent in gaming (as in video games) communities.

    The name Leet itself is derived from the word elite (also 31337). Elite has been used in the past to designate a group of users as belonging to a higher social echelon than other users. Originally, elite had been reduced to one syllable, leet.

    Because of this derivation from the word elite, calling someone or something leet may be considered a compliment, although it is also used in an ironic derogatory manner

    1337 - leet character table

    There are lots of symbolic meaning involve in each numbers and characters that you can use them to form totally new culture/language. Most of those fancy words are used on chats to shorten the words to achieve faster message delivery. For example, the very basic or well known usage of chat short-hands are g8, l8ter, brb, gtg, ltns, etc (ok, that’s all I know. :d)

    Leet finds its base in written communication over electronic media. Most simply, it has evolved as a way of forming exclusive cliques in on-line communities, notably Bulletin Board Systems and online multiplayer games

    …using Leet in discussion has become a bit of a novelty or joke. Users have begun using Leet to indicate that they are part of the Leet-using counterculture, or to mock the existence thereof.

    It’s very interesting that the whole 26 English characters can be formed by different types of Leet phrases. I read on and on about the usage of “x0r” and “z0r”, having a grammar etc. Then I got to this section, kekeke, I was so surprised to find that it actually came from some expression language, and not a made up girlish laugh. I was also surprised to find out that there are lots of funny words to express laughter in different culture. Think about you typing your laugh as “hahaha”, you go, “jajaja” “hoh-hoh-hoh”, “fufufu”, “hu hu hu”. LOL Oh Gosh, when some of my friends type “kekeke” as their laugh, I was thinking they must be crazy. It’s quite alrite to hear “kekeke” from a girl but when I hear “kekeke” from a guy, I just want to give him one big slap; I just can’t stand that kind of laugh from a guy. LOL

    The expression “kekeke” is widely believed to have come from Koreans. In the Korean language, people expressed laughter in writing by repeating the letter “ㅋ” (Korean letter for the hard k [as opposed to the g or soft k, "ㄱ"], called 키읔 or “kieuk”) many times over. Since early versions of StarCraft did not allow players to write in Hangul (the name of the Korean writing system), Koreans would romanize their language. Hence, kekeke was born. The phrase is an onomatopoetic Korean phrase similar to the English “hahaha”, Spanish “jajaja,” French “hoh-hoh-hoh-hoh-hoh,” or Japanese “fufufu”

    Some English speakers use “kekeke” as a form of laughing, similar to giggling although it is still primarily used by Korean speakers.

    Kekeke is also used as an evil laugh and is used by players using devious tactics and/or playing evil characters.

    Check out these examples of leet in action:

    (This is an example of leet at its finest. I will take this opportunity to remind you that you should always get your kids pet spayed or neutered. Never leave home without a towel. And no matter what they say, there is no cow level.)
