I don’t like doing urine test when I do not feel like peeing.
I got bored and I began looking through my phone. I found this, a page of my middle school yearbook. I don’t store this in my phone but it is stored on my Google Picasa.
Notice how horrible the pages are? You can’t read some people’s name because the background is too dark. I’m glad I was in charge of my yearbook in high school.
It’s sort of interesting to see where my classmates has gone in life. I also notice many of my middle school friends don’t list which college they are in on Facebook. :/
Something random, I’m also sort of disappointed that not one of them got into Harvard.
People with Beards
Here’s something I have noticed. People with beards tends to be crazy. Why do I say this? I was just reading about the Sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway back in 1995. It was a chemical terrorism attack caused by this religious group Aum. And here’s a snapshot from a Youtube video that Discovery produced of the Aum leader, Shoko Asahara.
Okay, the beard part. Jesus Christ has a beard, Saddam Hussein has a beard, Osama bin Laden has a beard, and Confucius has a beard. (Hitler has his special mustache.) Have you ever notice people with beards are more likely to be (crazy) religious leaders?
I guess if you want people to believe you, you need to get a beard.

I was reading this article on Yahoo (http://finance.yahoo.com/news/high-deductibles-fuel-worries-health-004100021.html) and they where talking about high deductibles.
I too can relate to HIGH deductibles that insurances charges. I still recall my $200 blood test…
Changing your toothbrush
Toothbrush manufactures recommends that you replace your toothbrush every 3 months. But what is the reality of toothbrush replacement?
Let me talk about myself first. If I buy/get for free the soft bristle toothbrushes I usually have to replace them within 4 weeks. After week 3, I feel that the toothbrush no longer cleans as well when it was new. I can feel the plaque left behind.
But I’m a bit different. I brush my teeth at least 3 times a day; 4 if I’m at home to have lunch. So I wear down my toothbrushes a lot faster than people who just brushes 2 times a day.
If I buy the medium bristle versions (they never give these out for free), my toothbrush can possibly last 3 months, but 2 months seems more realistic. But do know, if your using a medium toothbrush, remember to brush lightly so you do not cause gum recession. I had that happen… But the solution is easy, just brush lighter and the gums will grown back.
Okay, here’s what I notice from my roommates. The only person I have ever notice who replace their toothbrush regularly was my aspiring to become a dentist roommate. The other roommate I notice replacement was my persian roommate, but just once.
My mom doesn’t like replacing toothbrushes. She says it causes her gums to bleed when she uses a new toothbrush. As stupid as that is, the new toothbrush is actually doing a better job.
Side note: I have never noticed my current roommate brush his teeth at night. In my opinion, that is REALLY BAD. Dental hygienist always like to pick on their patients on the amount of plaque the find when they do the check up. The reason why they pick on you is because plaque slowly eats away you teeth and causes tooth degeneration=cavities. Here’s a good Youtube video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGB3UHeVvSg
In LA there are many people who speaks Spanish, maybe even more than San Francisco.
With the many opportunities to speak Spanish, most of the time I have pretended not to know Spanish.
Off to Procrastination
I read a lot in my opinion for a person my age and gender (I think). I’m not a book fan, but I like reading stuff on a computer screen because the screen holds itself up. I can hold a book up, but then there is the issue of lighting and my heavy head not wanting to support itself.
So what do I read? I like to read news sites and the occasional blog about anything. I also like to do commentary writing as you might be able to tell from my Tumblr.
I kind of miss reading Jacky Pang’s wordpress, which he doesn’t update anymore.
