Woman Sent an Email While Asleep.

According to a case described in the medical journal Sleep Medicine, a 44-year-old sleepwalker logged onto her computer and emailed out party invitations to friends. Fortean Times magazine looks at this case and several other bizarre episodes of somnambulism. From Fortean Times:
The mails themselves were perhaps not up to the woman’s waking standard; each was in a random mix of upper and lower case characters, badly formatted and containing odd expressions. One read: “Come tomorrow and sort this hell hole out. Dinner and drinks, Bring wine and caviar only.” Another said simply: “What the…”

The writers of the report have dubbed this new variation of sleepwalking ‘zzz-mailing’. They say: “We believe writing an email after turning the computer on, connecting to the Internet and remembering the password displayed by our patient is novel. To our knowledge this type of complex behaviour requiring coordinated movements has not been reported before in sleepwalking. She was shocked when she saw these emails, as she did not recall writing them. She did not have any history of night terr­ors or sleepwalking as a child.”

Unlike simple sleepwalking, they argue, the activities the woman engaged in required complex behaviour and coordinated movement, as well being able to remember her login details. She had no memory of the events next day. It’s thought that the somnambulistic episode may have been triggered by prescript­ion medication.

He grabbed for the gun and he and the gunman went around and around in the kitchen area, both trying to gain control. The camera captured the moments.

Coming this April - Nintendo DSi

It's already the best-selling handheld console in history, but the Nintendo DS still isn't resting on its laurels. It's in line for its third facelift, which U.S. consumers will finally see this coming April.

The revamped version -- dubbed the "DSi" -- is slightly thinner and has larger screens than the original DS, but its most noticeable change is Nintendo's addition of two cameras: one inside, pointing towards the player, and one outside, positioned rather like a cellphone camera. Inside the case, the console's hardware is upgraded with faster processors and extra memory. It'll also accept a SD memory card for saving pictures or storing music.


Along with upgraded networking features like better wireless support and a free web browser, the DSi will also be able to go online to a Nintendo store similar to the Wii's Shop Channel. Gamers will be able to use it to purchase games for download to the DSi's internal memory -- much like the bigger consoles can already do, in fact.

Releasing on April 5 for $170, the new DS will be $40 more expensive than the current DS model, but still matches or beats both its competitors, the Sony PSP, which is also $170, and the iPod Touch, which starts at $230. Regular games for the DSi will still cost around $30; a bit cheaper than most PSP titles, but considerably more expensive than iPod Touch games which, while typically much simpler, seldom venture above the $10 mark.

So price aside, how does the software selection up? The DSi will be able to play all past DS game, but unlike earlier DS models, it won't be able to play older Game Boy Advance titles. Future games will likely take advantage of the machine's camera, but there's nothing on the market just yet that supports it. The DS has a considerably broader (and arguably better) selection of games than either the PSP or the iPod Touch, and thanks to its enormous install base, its future as a viable gaming platform is unchallenged.

But will the DSi's media-friendly upgrades make it a legit challenger the PSP or iPod Touch's more advanced capabilities? Don't hold your breath. Either of those machines is still going to be a better bet if you want a one-gadget-fits-all machine that'll let you play music, watch movies, and browse the Internet.

However, the games-first focus of the DS line has only benefited it. Already home to massive-selling, unique franchises like Brain Age, Pokemon, and Nintendogs, the next few months hold yet more promising releases like Rockstar's all-new Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. And we're really curious to find out what Nintendo, ever ready to come up with inventive control systems, can do with that camera. If you want in on the action, you're going to need one.

Dating Tricks 101 - Don't Limit Your Thoughts

"There are no decent single men/women available."

"I'm going to have to settle because there's no one else out there."

" All the good ones are taken.
All the good ones are taken."

If any of these excuses sound familiar, you shouldn't give up on your search for love. You just need to rethink your attachment to the scarcity myth that singles suffer from. How? Participate in the following fun three-week experiment. All you need is an open mind, a few spare minutes each day, and a desire to change your dating karma.

Week #1: Start by making eye contact with someone you find attractive (who you don't know) every day for a week. You can do this in the elevator in your office building, while picking out produce at the grocery store, in line for your morning latte, or in a social setting (bar, party, picnic, etc.). It's not important where you do this exercise, only that you start getting comfortable making eye contact with potential partners.

Week #2: The following week, make eye contact and smile at at least one person you find attractive every day. Chances are good that you'll get a smile back. It doesn't have to go any further than that (don't expect him/her to ask for your digits). This is simply an exercise in getting comfortable engaging potential partners. Short on time? Suggested locations to smile and make eye contact on the go include the gym, while stuck in traffic, picking up your dry cleaning, or while grabbing a quick bite out of the office.

Week #3: During the third week of this exercise, make eye contact, smile, and make small talk with at least one person you find attractive every day. If the idea of small talk gets you tongue-tied, relax. Start simply and slowly. Remember, this doesn't have to be rocket science. You don't have to think of the wittiest conversation-starter ever. The goal is to just get the ball rolling. Potential conversation-starters can be as simple as:

Hi. (Seriously, that counts!)
How's your day going?

I dig your shoes/tie/suit/dress. Where'd you get them/it?
Once you've opened up the conversation, don't look away. Maintain eye contact, smile, and wait for his/her response. If it invites additional conversation, great! If not, your job for the day is done and you can move on. If for some reason, the object of your attention is rude or dismissive, don't take it personally.
Rejection is part of the dating process.
Rejection is part of the dating process. Chalk it up to experience, let go, and try again tomorrow.

The point of this exercise is to debunk the scarcity myth by showing yourself that there's actually an abundance of potential partners in your everyday life. They may not always be interested, they may not always be available, but by getting into the practice of noticing and acknowledging them, you're more likely to spot the ones who are interested and available when they present themselves to you.
Now, if your routine goes something like this: home, work, gym, home, then you've got to shake things up. At least once a week from now on, break with routine and put yourself in a target-rich environment. Suggested activities include:

1. Stop by the bookstore after work and browse a topic of interest while keeping your eye out for any cuties.

2. You can also recruit your pals for an after work drink at a local hotspot. In addition to hanging with your buddies, scope out the scene for potential partners.

3. Do some research for a fun singles' activity, i.e. online dating, speed dating, a networking mixer, or golf Club hike and go for it. Find a cause near and dear to your heart and volunteer on a Saturday or Sunday. You never know who you'll meet!

These are just some of the suggested activities you should engage in. Remember, the goal is not necessarily to score a date, but to get you out of your monotonous routine that may be keeping you from meeting potential partners. The more you put yourself in target-rich environments and get comfortable talking to strangers, the better.

Good luck and happy dating!

Infamous Serial Killers

Halloween reminds us of everything scary. From ghosts to zombies, this holiday makes us confront some of our most outrageous fears.

But not all fears are as ridiculous as fearing a vampire attack. Serial Killers are an unfortunate reality of today's world. Every generation has its serial killer, and every serial killer has a story.

One of the most infamous serial killers is known as Jack the Ripper; an identity which has never been revealed. Jack the Ripper terrorized London in 1888, killing a disputed number of five women who worked the streets as prostitutes. The victims were found mutilated. At one crime scene, police found a bloody apron, and labeled the killer as "Leather Apron".

Letters were sent to newspapers and police, written by the alleged killer. Scholars have proven that at least two letters were written by the same person. In the first letter, the killer laughs at the police. As published by The Crime Library website. The letters reads as follows: "I keep on hearing the police have caught me but they won't fix me just yet. I have laughed when they look so clever and talk about being on the right track. That joke about Leather Apron gave me real fits."

The letter continues, with the killer explaining how much he "loves his work." The author then signs the letter as Jack the Ripper, coining the name.

Although the Ripper was never revealed, other serial killers have not been as lucky.

Henry Lee Lucas was born in the 1930's, to a prostitute mother and a wheelchair-ridden father. The family all slept in one bedroom, and according to, Lucas and his brother were often forced to watch their mother perform sexual acts with her clients. The mother would beat Lucas if he disobeyed her, and would curl his hair and send him to school wearing dresses.

Years later, as a young adult Lucas killed his mother. He stabbed her, and left her in his half-sister's apartment. Although she survived for two days, his mother suffered from a heart attack due to her injuries, and passed away. He pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to 2-40 years in prison.

In prison, Lucas tried to kill himself twice, and was sent to a psychiatric hospital for four years. He was then released back to the prison, and warned that if released he would kill again. Despite the warning though, Lucas was released, only to kill more. According to, Lucas would have sex with his victims after killing them. He was finally tracked down and arrested, and he confessed to murdering hundreds of people.

Many horror movies had antagonists that mimic real life serial killers, but perhaps no serial killer has been imitated as much as Ed Gein has.

As a necrophilia, Gein used the body parts of his victims as household decoration. According to the website, he hung a headless torso from the ceiling, used skull caps as bowls, human skin was made into waste baskets and lampshades, and he actually had an entire suit made of skin. His condition was mimicked by Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs.

During his trial, it was revealed that Gein was a "Sexual psychopath" due to the odd relationship he had with his mother, which inspired Norman Bates' character in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho.

Gein was only convicted of two murders, and had dug up graves to decorate his house with other body parts. He eventually died at a hospital for the criminally insane.

Although it may appear that serial killing belongs to men, women have been guilty of the same as well. Born to a father imprisoned for child molestation and a dead beat mother, Aileen Wuornos began life as poorly as she lived it. As a hitch-hiking prostitute, she shot and killed seven men, and later confessed to her actions. She and girlfriend Tyria Moore lived together during her killing spree, and Wuornos confessed to protect her lover.

Why Nice Guys Finish Last in Love?

Are you a nice guy who has always wondered why the cocky guy -- the one who barely appears interested in the girl -- is usually the one who gets the girl?
Have you suffered from hearing the words, "You're a really nice guy, but I only like you as a friend," from a woman who you would do (or may, in fact, have already done) just about anything and everything for -- only to turn around and watch her date (or even chase) a guy who treats her like she's nothing special? And are you stumped wondering why she would date a guy who treats her like that when she could have you who would treat her like a princess and give her everything she wants? Well, you better brace yourself because I'm going to tell you a couple of secrets that you might not want to hear.

First, "nice" equates with boring and predictable. Look up "nice" in the dictionary and you find: pleasant; agreeable; satisfactory. In other words, average -- not exceptional, not exciting, and not sexy.I'll bet you've never heard a woman say she didn't want to date a guy because he was too confident, too passionate, or too exciting -- have you? But, I'll bet you have heard women say things like, "He's such a nice guy. He's so sweet and he's always there for me, but I only like him as a friend." Or, "He's such a good guy -- kind, thoughtful, generous, honest, loyal -- but there's no chemistry. He just doesn't turn me on." Sadly, I hear it all the time. The fact is, Mr. Nice Guy, you cannot bore a woman into feeling attracted to you or into wanting to date you. And as obvious as that sounds, if you are one of those guys I described that is exactly what you are trying to do. And it won't work.

Please understand that I am not suggesting that you mistreat women or disrespect them in any way.
What I suggesting is that you value and respect yourself more.
What I suggesting is that you value and respect yourself more.

To illustrate what I mean: The answer to the question, "Why does the guy who doesn't appear to care as much about the girl get the girl?" is simple: The nice guy cares too much, too soon. He has made the woman too important and too valuable and it shows in everything he says and does. He is too available, too eager to please, too accommodating, and he gives too much -- all without getting anything in return. By doing so, he has made himself appear desperate, insecure, needy of this woman's attention, affection, and approval -- and he has stripped himself of any value in her eyes. After all, if he's already doing and giving everything, without her doing or giving anything - why would she value him? She won't. She is not going to value him any more than he values himself. What she is going to do is look for someone else, someone who she perceives as being more worthy, more confident, and more valuable.

It works like this:
Once you need something, or you want it too badly, you forfeit your strength and lose all power of negotiation.
Once you need something, or you want it too badly, you forfeit your strength and lose all power of negotiation. You are in a position of weakness and you are perceived as weak. Someone (or something) else is in control of you, the situation, and it's outcome.

Men in this situation appear to be anything but confident, strong, and exciting. More, they are perceived as being unworthy and as lacking value.
Translation: Things that are easily acquired, obtained, or maintained, without any effort or sacrifice, lack value... it's human nature.

The secret to why the cocky guy wins with women, over the nice guy, is that he is perceived as being a stronger, more confident guy with more value. How? He never invests everything -- his entire being, ego, and self-worth in what one woman's response or reaction to him is. He doesn't gush with compliments; he isn't always available; he doesn't give too much; and he knows he isn't going to die if a woman says "no" to him. More, his attitude is, yeah, I'd like to go out with you, but if I can't, that's OK -- I'm a busy guy, with exciting things going on, and lots of other options.

SuperBoy ( The TV Series )

I'm having a hard time looking for complete SuperBoy TV Series on DVD. I've been looking around in stores but no to avail. Superboy is one of my favorite TV show before and i would be very happy if i can have the complete series on DVD. There's only one season dvd available on stores.

Alexander Salkind is the production behind Reeve's Superman movies before, no wonder he made a lot of flying effects so convincing too, in this tv series. Check out this 3 different opening scene from Superboy TV Series... and notice the amazing flying effects too.

ESPN's Top 10 All-Time NBA Slam Dunk Contest Moments

Are Multi-Vitamins Really Necessary or you're just wasting your money?

Advertisements with tantalizing promises of improved health, prevention of cancer and heart disease, and greater energy have lured millions of people to spend billions of dollars on the purchase of multivitamins.

An article in the February 9 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine reported that multivitamin use did not protect the 161,808 postmenopausal women enrolled in the Women's Health Initiative Study from common forms of cancer, heart attacks, or strokes. And the numbers of deaths during the 8 years of the study were the same in vitamin users as in non-users. Still, it is important to recognize that this was an observational study, not a more meaningful clinical trial. Although these findings apply only to women, other studies have failed to show benefits of multivitamins in older men.

These results are not at all surprising for several reasons. No large study has shown that multivitamins significantly benefit healthy men and women. In addition, for some years physicians prescribed folic acid and vitamins B12 and B6 in the hopes of preventing heart attacks and strokes by lowering blood levels of homocysteine. (High blood levels of homocysteine are associated with an increased risk of coronary and other vascular diseases.) A number of recent studies, however, have shown that, while these vitamins do lower homocysteine levels, they do not prevent heart attacks or strokes.

Many doctors have also prescribed the antioxidants vitamin E and beta-carotene to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Alas, studies have now proven that these supplements are not protective--and may even be harmful.

No one denies that an adequate intake of vitamins is essential; however, vitamins can and should be obtained from eating enough healthy foods rather than from swallowing vitamin supplements.

Then what about vitamins being a great source of energy? Some multivitamin ads do indeed claim that their supplements boost energy; and some professional athletes gobble handfuls of vitamin pills to increase their energy and strength. But researchers proved long ago that energy comes from calories, not vitamins. The highly touted cholesterol-lowering effects of substances added to some multivitamin supplements? Still unproven.

All this is not to say that specific vitamins supplements are never desirable. Vitamins can be valuable in certain situations:

Folic acid supplements in women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant can help to prevent serious neural-tube defects that affect the baby's brain and spine.
Supplements that contain more vitamin D and calcium than is present in regular multivitamin pills can help older men, and especially women, avoid osteoporosis and bone fractures.
Supplements of vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, zinc, and copper may slow the progression of vision loss in people with early macular degeneration.
And multivitamins are beneficial for some entire groups of people:

those on a very-low-calorie weight-loss diet
strict vegetarians
heavy alcohol drinkers
individuals who are not getting an adequate diet because they are too sick or too poor--or live by themselves and are unable to prepare proper meals for themselves
I also agree with a comment made by one of the coauthors of the Archives of Internal Medicine article about postmenopausal women mentioned above. An 8-year follow-up period may not be long enough to show that multivitamins protect against cancers that take many years to develop.

All the same, the results of the studies on vitamins so far point to one conclusion: Healthy people who eat enough calories from a varied diet do not benefit from multivitamin supplements.

Not looking at the Camera.

I'm just wondering why early portrait pictures like this one, the subject doesn't care to look straight at the camera, i mean looking somewhere else? Hehehe...

I really love old pictures, any old pictures of places and people really gives me a glowing heart...hehehe dont know why really. Somehow it gives me the feeling of woaaawaa... wow this is how they look like before? Hhhmmm...

An early picture from the Philippines. Glad this one survives. Hehehe..yes this is how Filipina looks like in the Spanish era. Modesty speaks for itself.


Hhhmmm.. talking about effective Ad Campaign. Here's one that really looks so disturbing and yet the message is clear brought by that short caption above that says "Without a condom you're sleeping with aids. Protect yourself". That very disturbing image speaks for itself. It was the work of Dimitri Daniloff, in Paris for the Aids Awareness Campaign

Superman Statue ( Christopher Reeve )

Upon sufring the web, I've stumbled upon this commemorative Superman statue exclusively from DC Direct. Christopher Reeve strikes an iconic pose from the classic 1978 feature film Superman The movie that made the world believed that a man could fly...and turned Reeve into an iconic superhero star.

Superman Statue is a limited-edition, hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain statue measuring approximately 12.50" tall x 5.5" wide x 3.75" deep. (The base measures approximately .75" high x 6.5" diameter.)
But there's only one problem to this statue, there's no 'S' at the back of his cape. For everyone's information. Superman cape has a yellow 'S' mark in it. Watch the movie if you don't understand what i mean hehehe.

The statue includes a 4-color Certificate of Authenticity and is packagedin a 4-color box. Manufactured to order. Price at $195 much when we convert that to the Phillippine peso? Hhhmmm...around 9 thousand plus, as of the dollar rate today-Feb 6, '09.

Pretty Face

I saw this girl from the movie Nacho Libre wayback in 2006, Her name is Ana de la Reguera. Man... talking about pretty perfect faces, i think Ana deserves to be on the list!!! What do you think?

I just love Superman!!!

I've always been a Superman fan, i mean the Christopher Reeve Superman movies. I honestly don't give a damn if someone likes Spiderman more than Superman. I don't mind listening to other people that Superman is for kids only. But sometimes people just like to antagonize me for liking the man of steel. Superman is my Superhero. He loves peace, he loves helping people and he doesn't want to hurt anybody in any way.

When Christopher Reeve put on the famous blue, red and yellow suit he looked exactly like he had walked right out of the pages of a Superman comic book. I mean, the perfect man for the rule of the man of steel. He kept to the spirit of the character & was a credit to the role. He also managed to do something very difficult: create individual characters of Clark Kent & Superman. His voice seems so different when he is Clark Kent, and uses another voice technique when he became Superman. What a man, what a talent.

I also like the way they designed the Superman Costume, big 'S' on the chest, with the cape that perfectly attached to his suit. ( not like that Superman costume that Brandon used, damn the suit looks awful with a dark red cape? ) hehehe...
There's a lot of DVD about Superman, but i suggest you buy the Reeve Superman films... and you also will believe that a man can fly.

Here's a tribute video of Superman starring the legendary Christopher Reeve. If you wont still agree that Reeve is the perfect role for Superman, watch closely.
