Virginia Tech, Nagasaki, scary world…

Saw the news about Virginia Tech a bit earlier. Scary stuff. I don’t want to try and coop tragedy for political motives and I’m not advocating a complete ban on firearms or anything, but I think Virginia might want to rethink their gun laws a bit.

I can’t find any mention of it in the U.S. news (online) but the news here reports the shooter was a Chinese exchange student ,news just changed that to Korean ? I can’t really think of a very convincing argument for exchange students being allowed to buy weapons…

In news from this side of the world, the mayor of Nagasaki has been shot. No real details yet, but I’m betting on Yakuza, Nagasaki being Nagasaki after all.

Overall, yet another day that makes me want to move out to the country away from other people and lock myself, my friends and family indoors.

If anyone ever comes up with a way to become rich without working, let me know.

In the meantime, have some videos of Biohazard with Mario Bros. sounds dubbed in.

Pokemon + bronx accent = hilarity

Be warned foul language, and you may spontaneously devolve after watching this…

Not dead!… yet

Sorry for the lack of… well everything lately. Things are really busy. I was so busy last summer that I worked for 3 months straight without an actual full day (consecutive 24 hours) off, and it’s starting to look like I might be in for more of the same starting now… so let’s see, it’s April, so if things start to slow down by the end of August then that’s what, lessee here, April, May, June, July, August…

oh… only 5 months or so…


Prisoner wins boxing title, early release

Thai prisoner wins women’s world title at Bangkok Hilton

Tue Apr 3, 9:37 AM

BANGKOK (Reuters) – Thai inmate Samson Sor Siriporn boosted her chances of freedom by beating Japan’s Ayaka Miyano to win the vacant women’s WBC light-flyweight title at the notorious “Bangkok Hilton” prison on Tuesday.

Under the gaze of dozens of prison guards, Siriporn, a convicted drugs dealer, battled through the unforgiving Thai heat to score a unanimous points victory and kick-start parole proceedings for her early release.

“I’ve been in jail for a long time now, I hope this will see me released early,” said Siriporn, flanked by mean-looking guards and surrounded by photographers.

“When I’m free I’ll carry on fighting. I want to fight all over the world.”

Fighting in a makeshift ring in the grounds of the infamous Klong Prem prison with the Thai crowd chanting “fight, fight,” Siriporn was on the attack from the start and repeatedly forced Miyano on to the ropes with a barrage of punches.

The intense afternoon heat took its toll on Miyano, who twice fell to the canvas as a result of Siriporn’s relentless attacks, which drew rapturous applause from the few thousand prison staff, factory workers and taxi drivers who flocked to see her fight for freedom.


Siriporn’s sparring partners also watched the fight, while glamorous transvestites in high heels and skimpy outfits were allowed out of their cells to parade around the ring with placards at the beginning of each round.

Siriporn fended off a brief fightback in the penultimate round to outpoint her opponent 97-93, 98-92, 100-91 and become the first prisoner to win a world boxing title.

“I’m so happy with the way I performed today,” she said. “I’m very proud.”

Siriporn, 24, was jailed seven years ago for selling “ya ba” methamphetamine pills and took up boxing to pass the time and to protect herself from violent inmates.

Thai corrections department chief Natti Jitsawang said Siriporn’s criminal days were over and her victory would likely see her freed three years early.

“We will start the process for her parole immediately,” Natti told reporters just moments after the fight.

“I think it’s very likely she will be released as a result of this victory, maybe in a couple of months. We gave her a chance to show us her talent, and she has done that.

He added: “She is a changed woman, and now she has the chance to be free and fight around the world.”

So… in Thailand you can go to prison for being a degenerate but get released early if you the beat up people well enough. Oh! And let’s not forget the parade of transvestites.

What a wonderful rehabilitation system.

“And I think to myself, what a wonderful worlllllllllllllllllld”
