5 Movies That Could Have Ended Quickly
Inspired by cracked.com, I present to you 5 Movies That Could Have Ended Quickly.
#1. The Dark Knight
If only Batman just kill the heck out of Joker when Joker is helplessly standing right in front of him.
If only Aladdin had thought of wishing for more wishes...
#3. Harry Potter
If only Voldemort apologize to Harry...#4. The Terminator
If only Skynet had thought of sending many many assassin robots way back in time to kill a harmless baby Sarah Connor...
#5. Transformers : Revenge of the Fallen
If only Sam had known that Google is the best search engine in the world...
----------------------------- To make up for the short post above, I will make a small analysis ahead of the big match between Liverpool F.C. and Manchester United F.C. this coming weekend. I will try to be as unbiased as possible :p
Liverpool's point of view:
Losing 4 games on the trot is certainly not a big four material. The Premier League and Champions League is at stake. The game against Manchester United this weekend will definitely prove to be vital if Liverpool are to finally live up to their seasonal quote of "Next year we will win it".
Liverpool will come into this game with a mental state of getting back to form and prove to the world they are still a contender. I'd say they will throw everything out to win the game, and nothing else. It's more of a "getting-back-to-form" than the traditional "league's deadliest rivalry match" atmosphere for Liverpool.
Manchester United's point of view:
On the contrary, Manchester United has enjoyed a long undefeated run since the Burnley game, eventually topping the league table. The game against Liverpool is an important one as Manchester United look to get back revenge for last season's defeat. Also, a win in this game will just prove to many just how independent Manchester United is without Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, Manchester United's goalscoring performance has failed to impress me. They are able to dominate all over the pitch, but when it comes to scoring, there is a slight problem.
Will Liverpool win?
If Gerrard and Torres are able to make a miraculous recovery, then they may have a chance as this will rejuvenate inspiration and motivation to the team.
Will Manchester United win?
If Giggs can recover by Saturday, and able to play, I'd say Manchester United will have a very bright chance of winning the game.
Liverpool 0-1 Manchester United
Berbatov will score a deadly header from half-way line! xD

Emo v.s. Gothic
My latest ambigram. This time, I'm using a proper pen to draw.
This is a symbiotogram, a type of ambigram. It reads differently when flipped 180 degrees. I choose not to tell you what the above word says. I need to know how readable it is. So guys, tell me what you think it is through the tagboard yea.
I got 2 more ambigrams in store, but I still need to work more on it to make it look better. Will post those 2 up in a future update.
Recently, there's been a buzz about teenage subcultures brought to notice by REnzo via the tagboard. I thought of this as a good opportunity to update!
What's the difference between Emo and Gothic?
Well, after a brief analysis, this is what I found.
Hamid actually provided a good description for emo! Emo people are self-centered people who thinks the world revolves around him/herself only.
They think the world is gonna end. They think they are lonely when in fact they are just too stubborn to socialize. They frequently tell everybody that their life is full of shit, and are somewhat heartbroken to the point of suicide.
How to be Emo:
-Seek attention by avoiding everybody.
-If you're a guy, keep your hair long so that you can cover part of your eyes.
-Don't laugh at people's joke no matter how funny it is. If it's too funny, try your best to maintain the Jay Chou stare.
-Do not talk.
-Listen to expressive and emotional musics.
-Upon reaching level 25, you are strongly advised to cut your wrist. You will never die.
-If you succeed, you will look something like this:
Hamid actually provided another good definition for gothic! Well done Hamid! Someone should really consider buying him a chocolate!
Goths are people who has a strange affinity to dark tastes. They are strongly associated with the Victorian era. Victorian era was the period of Queen Victoria's reign of United Kingdom in the 19th century. As such, Goths often poised themselves as being a high level socialite to a certain extent, dressing themselves like those Victorians.
Their main trait is their defiance and rebellion to social norms. They are strongly inspired by romanticism. 4 words to describe Goths are dark, mysterious, morbid and horror.
How to be a Victorian Goth:
-Start of by reading a lot of romantic novels, particularly novels from the 19th century.
-If you're a guy, you gotta seriously start taking make-up classes.
-Put on dark eyeliners, color your nails black, and use only black lipsticks.
-You may choose to pierce yourself on either your lips or your brows.
-If you're rich enough, go buy yourself a good 19th century black coat. For girls, you need long black dresses.
-To heighten the effect, you girls should consider wearing that net thingy on your face.
-For girls, shield yourself with black umbrellas wherever you go. Guys are advised to wear that rectangular magician hat (y'know, the one where magicians always take out rabbits?)-Attend theaters, masquerades, and ball parties. Of course, if you live in Brunei, the best place you can attend is to the Mall.
-A successful Victorian Goth will look like this:

. There are actually a lot of other stereotypes of Goths!
That concludes my analysis for Emo v.s. Gothic. Since REnzo brought up this topic, are we to witnessed REnzo's transformation from Emo to Goth? Or is Gary gonna realize his potential lies within his Handsomeity and not Emo? We'll find out ;)

[Wikipedia] An ambigram is a typographical design or artform that may be read as one or more words not only in its form as presented, but also from another viewpoint, direction or orientation.
-----------------------------------------Try reading the word "ambigram" upside down from the image above, then you'll understand.I was introduced to the world of ambigrams when I read Dan Brown's Angels and Demons a few years back.However, I only started building my interest towards ambigram earlier today xD Out of pure boredom in one of my classes *cough* Economics *cough* today, I attempted ambigraming my name. And the result is a proud enough achievement for me. Which is why I am posting this, in order to show it off to the world =p Can't help it.Not bad for amateurs, eh?When I got home, I started manipulating my brothers' names.Nadzuan. I think I messed up the letter "a" there.Nazrul.And my final piece of the day comes in the form of...DENCORP! Gotta admit I screwed up the letter "c" there.Hope my skill will develop in the near future! Then I'll produce better results.Study leave for MD-ians will commence next week on the 10th of October. A level is fast approaching. I'm taking this chance to wish everybody good luck in every papers that you are gonna sit. It's our final exam in our schooling life everybody! Let's make it worthwhile!
