Me+ fire= :D

While in the city with my friend last Friday, we stumbled across a shop, a veritable fun factory!

Just next to the checkout area of aforementioned shop, there were deodorant cans on sale, and right next to them were lighters! You can imagine my joy when my friend said he had never done 'the aerosol and lighter thing.'

We bought armfuls of each, and hurried to the carpark behind the shop. It was dark.

After performing this 'trick,' many times, I went home. Above are some of the pictures I too :D

I sprayed the deodorant into a glass, then held the lighter above the opening, aflame. Woof!
The next pictures are of the standard, 'hold lighter in front of can and spray' variety.

My inner pyromaniac loved it!

What do you enjoy doing with fire?

My Day of Badminton Excellence

Today, I elected to participate in an inter-school badminton competition. Having had badminton racquets always available as a kid, but never actually using them, I considered myself an expert!
So, this morning three of my friends and I stepped off the bus to a rude shock. We had been 'chosen' to play the Victorian State team, as a warmup for their upcoming National Championship. :/

Needless to say, we were thoroughly beaten, but it was good to see how a good team play.

Oh, and by the way, THANKS GUYS!

Yesterday I downloaded The Gimp (GNU Image Manipulation Program.) I highly recommend it! It is a very powerful, free picture editing program.
I have completed a few online tutorials, which I have posted below.

This is a great tool for anyone interested in amateur or even professional graphic design.

You weren't born that way.

Take a moment to look at the picture above.

I think it is reasonably accurate, in terms of depicting how the social environment you are brought up in affects the person you are.

My parents were more on the 'liberal' side of this picture. Although the polictical party with these views in Australia is actually called Labour, and the more right wing party is Liberal.

How were you brought up, and how do you think it has affected the person you are today?

Not Reno dummy, Rio, Rio de Janeiro

This is a photo of Rio de Janeiro, a place I would love to visit.
I find the South American ancient and modern culture fascinating, and from what I've heard it's a welcome change from the over commercialization of many other tourist destinations.

What is your dream holiday destination?

Judgement Day

Tomorrow, May 21st, will be the Second Coming of Jesus, and Judgement Day.

According to Harold Camping, and many fundamentalist Christians, tomorrow will be the end of the world as we know it.
The remaining people on earth that are not saved by Jesus in the May 21st Rapture will be sentenced to 5 months of torment under the rule of Jesus during the End of Days. The End Times will cause anarchy, chaos, disasters, and the end of civilization as we know it. Everyone left on earth will be well aware that Jesus is Lord, but savior will not be an option after May 21 Doomsday.

"Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father." Matthew 13:40-43.

Harold Camping previously predicted that Judgement Day would fall in September 1994. After this obviously fell through, he claimed a 'mathematical error.'

So, will your last day on earth be May 21, or October 21?

I hope that I will at least be alive until next Tuesday, my new TV gets delivered!
