I Want to be Healthy

Posted by Mark

Starting today I am on a new healthy diet.

- No McDonalds
- No Hardees, KFC, Texas Chicken, Burger King etc..
- No Softdrinks even the diet ones
- Subway is allowed (although after my last visit I won’t be going back)
- Gulf Royal Chinese is allowed but not 2 days in a row
- Will start eating more fruits. (I like melon, grapes (with no seeds), bananas and apples)
- Will start drinking chocolate milk every morning
- Anything from Kababji, Sajj House, Mughal Mahal, Great Steak & Potato is allowed
- No chocolate bars for breakfast or when bored at work. Chocolate bars will now be replaced with a handful of natural nuts (not fried)

I was going to try and be a vegeterian but I would end up starving to death since I don’t eat vegetables.

Update: Day 1 and I already broke rule #3, I had a pepsi for lunch. But I decided anyway that a bit of Pepsi is ok, it helps me digest…

Alarm Clocks are Bad

Posted by Mark

This is a good post by a student on how to wake up feeling fresh and energetic instead of grumpy and sleepy. The student suggests a very simple method of setting up 2 alarms, the first one would play music at a very low volume while the second alarm will ring at your normal volume. The thinking behind this is you set your first music alarm at very low volume to play at a time you want to wake up. If you wake up to the music you would probably be in light sleep and you will wake up feeling good. You set the second alarm to the latest time you would want to wake up, as a backup in case the first alarm didn’t wake you up. If you wake up to the second alarm you would wake up the normal way you wake up every day.

You can read the full details when you click the link, I am gonna try this myself tomorrow morning. [Link]

Update: Dogbert gave me a link to an alarm clock that runs away and hides after it rings so you wouldn’t be able to snooze it off, thats fucking crazy! [Link]

Hide My Ass

Posted by Mark

Since Google VPN is kinda flaky at the moment, you could try anonymous browsing (for Free) using Hide My Ass. [Link]

Note: Keep in mind, Hide my Ass is NOT secure. Meaning if your connection at the office is monitored, they will know where you have been going. For a secure connection use Proxify.

An Oldie but a Goodie

bic ad

This is one of my favorite ads and its for the BiC permanent marker. Since Jimi Hendrix died in 1970, this ad is showing how permanent the marker really is. Say this woman is around 60 years old now that means she got the autograph when she was max 30 years old, that would mean the marker lasted over 30 years. Here is a link to the larger version.
