Non-Jap ninja assassins...

While there is an increment on wife abusing their husbands in Saudi Arabia, women in Iran are more interested in getting their martial arts enhanced and perhaps it will be useful in any ways deem possible.
With 3,000 female ninja assassins in training, men should watch out even more.

These women thought to use dangerous weapons such as bow, swords, nunchucks and 'shurikens', a small traditional Japanese implements known as 'swords in the hand'.

The master of this centre Sensei Akbar Faraji was the first to introduce ninjutsu to Iran when he set up the club 22 years ago gathering  24,000 members to date.

I would love to trade pilates with this ninja training anytime....

Damn you facebook...

What have them at facebook done?....
Today I came across another news on the death of some people in the US.
They have created newborn killers, less passionate marriages because husband and wife will be talking less with each another and spending more time 'conversing' and communicating with friends on facebook.
Instead of mending kids and spending time after work, especially when both are working, they'll chuck their children in the hands of their maid and off they'll visit their friends pages and are more interested in knowing statuses and checking photos and whatnots than bonding with the family.

Just like how hand phone and PSP had taken over young children and teenagers.
Urggh...I so so despise looking at boys walking with their eyes on that play gadget.

While on this, I remember a story about one husband allegedly having that 'women's man' personality (or if that's what he believes), when he was caught having a gallavant time at the office party and taking pictures with pretty young colleagues in the range where weak and low-esteemed wife would call it a BAD thing to do.

He was tagged and the wife's friend saw the photos and you know what happened next.

Of course that was before those brilliant monsters at facebook alter and add some features considering 'privacy' is primary in this boundless world.
Just like chat room, it created rooms for cheating hearts, besides the actual rooms to chat. It all depends on the individual.

Nonetheless, not all a bad isn't it Mr Zuckerberg? ....There are some good to it too.
For example. A person like me. Whom had been jailed in this non-towering house and country.
I don't communicate with others except my 5 year old and 8 months daughters, and SO.
Besides that, maybe I'll be communicating with the Indian cashiers and helpers at the nearest mini market. If I ever bumped into some people I might know or those from the same country, I'll offer my 'hi how are you'  bla..bla..bla..a bit and that's about it. 

Indeed I will find facebook quite good in terms of allowing me to communicate with others besides the three souls at home. And you'll be surprised I communicated more with those in my home country and those who actually live here.!!
How ironic would that be?

Oh, please don't kill me..!!

Facebook "defriending" led to double murder, police say

NASHVILLE, Tenn (Reuters) - A Tennessee couple who "defriended" a woman on Facebook were murdered in their home by the jilted woman's father and another man, police said on Thursday.

"It's the worst thing I've ever seen," Johnson County Sheriff Mike Reece said, adding he had never seen anything like it in his 27 years in law enforcement in the area. "We've had murders, but nothing like this. This is just senseless."

He said Billy Clay Payne, Jr. and Billie Jean Hayworth were killed last month after they deleted Jenelle Potter, the daughter of one of the suspects, from their "friends" list. Both were shot in the head and the man had his throat cut.

The couple's 8-month-old baby was in the mother's arms, unharmed, when the bodies were found.

Marvin Enoch "Buddy" Potter Jr., 60, and Jamie Lynn Curd, 38, were each charged on Wednesday in Mountain City in northeastern Tennessee with two counts of first-degree murder. The men were arrested on Tuesday.

The case was not the first involving violence linked to Facebook. Last year in Iowa, a woman was arrested on accusations of setting fire to a friend's garage after she was defriended on the social network site, local media reported.

In Texas, a man was accused of hitting his wife after she failed to "like" a Facebook post he wrote about the anniversary of his mother's death, according to media reports.

In the Tennessee case, Reece said a couple of harassment cases had been filed against Jenelle Potter in court over "someone blocking her or taking her off."

"Once you've crossed her, you've crossed her father too," Reece said, adding that Jenelle Potter, in her late 20s or early 30s, stays home with her parents and was constantly on Facebook.

Her father, "Buddy" Potter, will return to court next week for a bond hearing after he hires an attorney. Curd, also a second cousin of one of the victims, was appointed an attorney and bond was set at $750,000 for each murder count. His preliminary hearing will be in March.

No charges have been filed against Jenelle Potter, the sheriff said. She could not reached for comment.

Curd's attorney, R.O. Smith, an assistant public defender, said it was "safe to say there's more to it than the Facebook problem, it appears."

"I wish I could provide more of what went on, but there's needless to say a lot of rumors swirling around and nothing substantiated on the rumors," Smith said. -- Reuters


No wonder some Islamic ulama dictates that facebook is haram (no joke, I've read it somewhere).
It can lead to some becoming insane, and this case is one of them known.
There might be lot more out there, not to the extend of quelling, but  maybe in form of minor or major harassment, identity copying ( know one), obsession with certain person and some other mentally ill actions.

If 'unfriending' can make someone be killed, I wonder how many time I have died before...and  will be in the future.
Unlike some people who just enjoy having hundreds and hundreds of 'friends' on their friend list (which I dare say they only get connected frequently with a handful of them). To me there's nothing wrong with you unfriending someone on facebook, of course loads of people might not share the same ideas.
It's too rude they'll say.
Just let it be, they'll say.
But hey, everyone need to conduct reality check every once a while and conduct a spring cleaning.
My spring cleaning however, will cover all from the household items to personal things and that includes cyber whom I assumed just send in friend request for the sake of having their number up and for the fun poking nose on whats going on with the other person's life without ever wanting to communicate whatnot's.

So, why want to be sour when you've been 'unfriended' on facebook?


When I read about this warning from Iran's parliamentary speaker Ali Larijani saying that the country will not forgive Gulf Arab nations if they continue backing US "plots" against them, it got me feeling rather amused. Incomprehensible.

What is their right to warn another soverignity on what to do and not to do?
How can you ask a nation to give up their government political decision just because you warn  and threathen of consequences in the surrounding region if the GCCs plots against their nation continues.

Ali Larijani was referring to the generous financial aid and political support provided by Gulf Arab states, namely Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, to the Iraqi regime during the 1980-1988 war against Iran. But he must know that there surely would be some kickbacks for the supports given. No?

The ever going strained ties between Shiite-dominated Iran and Sunni-majority Saudi Arabia deteriorated after Saudi-led troops intervened in Sunni-ruled Bahrain in March last year help the government there crush Shiite-led pro-democracy protests.

Obviously the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) had told Iran to "stop interfering in the internal affairs" of their nations.

Who would liketo be told to do this and that isn't it?.....
