Brassieres are Un-Islamic

Brassieres are Un-Islamic
via SankakuComplex:

A hardline Islamist group in law-less Somalia has begun publicly flogging women for wearing bras, as they claim violate Islam as they are 'deceptive'.

The group responsible, the insurgent group of Al Shabaab, has sent gunmen into the streets of Mogadishu to round up any women who appear to have a firm bust.
The women are then inspected to see if the firmness are natural, or if it is the result of wearing a bra. If they are found wearing a bra, they are ordered to remove it and shake their breast, said residents.

Al Shabaab seeks to impose a strict interpretation of the Sharia Law all over Somalia have also banned movies, musical ring-tones, dancing at weddings, and watching or playing soccer. Now they declare that "breast should be firm naturally, or just flat".

A man was recently thrown behind bars after having wrestled with another man, who humiliated her sister by beating her and forcing her to remove her bra.

Recycle the Right Way

Recycle the Right Way
via Dannychoo:

Garbage separation is a big thing in Japan. Over here in Singapore, I reckon it will still take 50 more years before the people here are civilized enough to do it right.

The photo below shows a bag of rubbish thrown out without the proper separation done. The pink sticker is left by the disposal fellas which says "This rubbish has not been separated. Separate it properly and try again".
Until one manages to separated out their rubbish properly, the disposal guys will leave the bags at your doorstep, uncollected. If they find an address in the bag (e.g. from an envelop etc), then they will leave it at the address. Very soon, non-compliance residents will have a mountain piled up at their door steps.

This bag above needs the cans and bottles separated out properly. The labels and caps need to be removed and they should be raised in water too. Once separated, one should keep them at home and throw them out on recycle day.
Recycle day is designated depending on where you live, and each area usually has a chart on display out in the streets which tells you when burnables, non-burnables, recyclables, etc should be put out.

The below video shows how one should go about separating out their rubbish:

Playboy Cover: Marge Simpson

Playboy Cover: Marge Simpson
via Sankaku:

Marge Simpson is set to grace the honorable cover and pages of top gravure Playboy magazine with a variety of racy poses and a supposedly full nude~
The move is reported as an effort to appeal to the younger readers in the twenties (with the average age of a Playboy reader being 35).

It is the first time a 2D character has appeared on the magazine cover. Fortunately, loyal subscribers will receive a version with the usual 3D girl on the cover.

Q: Hopefully not the one below though... its the Playboy cover for October 1971... familiar?
I took a couple of minutes and placed the pictures side by side...

Power of Photoshop

Power of Photoshop
published by Singapore Agnes Tan:

These are fine examples of WYSMNBWYG
You might wanna take a second look into that cute girl / boy you've just recently added in Facebook or Friendster...
Oh I learnt a new term yesterday....
When someone tells you online that the person is a "GIRL"...
It means "Guy In Real Life"...
Pretty sick huh?
Anyways, I think I'd better go brush up my Photoshop skills a little~
Who knows I might look cuter?
Afterall, I still look like I'm 5 years younger my current age~
I wonder how I'll look like when I'm 35 years old~
