Save Hong Kong!

Hong Kong is a safe place, protected by the law. People are demonstrating because the government tries to pass a law of China extradition. Which means you can get arrested in Hong Kong by China even if you’ve never physically stepped foot in China.

China recently sentenced someone 10-year jail just because she (“Lady Tianyi”) uploaded some homosexual comics, not to mention thousands of mysteriously disappearing persons who’ve said things the Chinese government disliked.

HK was a former British colony till 1997 which have been exercising rule of law and partial democracy, as opposed to China which is an authoritarian state with their own set of laws. Sadly, our law can be amended and the Chinese have the authority to interpret the law if there is any disputes.

What you, as foreigners can do, is to remember today’s as a historical fact because this might get erased in our future textbooks. Know the difference between HK and China and why HK is special. Many of us are considering immigrating and if we do move into your country I hope you’ll understand our situations. I’m sure we don’t want any trouble with the locals as well. Lastly, stay safe when you travel to HK if this bill does get pass.

Text above is not written by me but by  redditor /u/expressexpress The line I put in bold, triggered me to create this post. The pictures are taken today in Hong Kong, you can click on a picture for a larger version.

To add some perspective Hong Kong has a population of 7.4 million people, more then 1 million people are protesting. This is huge…..Unfortunately we all know how this is going to end. The drawing below is a pretty good representation of how the protest will end. Even though I dearly hope it will not be the case.

Me giving tech support through WhatsApp

I never tell people that “I am good with computers”  photo emo.gif
What also helps it is not expected from me. But, sometimes, I can’t avoid it.
This is a vid I made for a friend who sent me a text asking for help. She was ready with popcorn to watch some awful romcom, but the vid wouldn’t play and she didn’t know what to do.

In the vid you can see how I help her out, it is in Dutch btw  photo vork.gif

I quit drinking alcohol

I finally found a replacement drink for beer that is not overly sweet  photo thumbsup.gif The last couple of years alcohol started to annoy me, but I don’t have a sweet tooth. So drinks like , Coke, Fanta, Sprite etc. etc. are wasted on me. Also I don’t drink diary products, because those are bloody disgusting  photo pukey.gif. Which left me basically with water  photo emo.gif I don’t mind drinking that during the days. But in the evening it gets boring, so I would grab a beer. A couple of years ago it started to piss me off how alcohol was eating my evenings away photo piangry.gif

Last weekend I discovered tonic water. And this one is my favourite:

It is hardly sweet and I love the bitterly taste, an excellent replacement for beer. I confidently say now, I will not drink alcohol any more  photo worshippy.gif

Bloody keyboard!

Today the darn thing fell on top of my recovering (of course Photobucket) wrist.

It.hurt.quite.a.LOT.

I seriously considered finding a hammer Photobucket but I figured I need the twat to learn Python.

This comment in my spam box did make me feel a little bit  better.

cliccie for larger piccie

A spammer who wrote a comment herself instead of using auto generated crap? Too bad her punctuation is bit off Photobucket otherwise it would have been brilliant.
