point no 6 really struck me. THAT is the exact same reason why i wear clean, nice-looking underwear everyday.

i'm paranoid.

in other news, i read in the uh, news today in the newspaper aptly called TODAY, that the al qaeda is now targetting at "a big, financial hub in asia" and the top 3 targets as reported are japan, australia.

their ambition is to create chaos. purely that.

do i agree with their ambitions? no. and so do most muslims here.

God, what i said in your comment a few posts ago seems so real... so close now... it's scary.

i hope they don't succeed otherwise they're gonna incur the wrath of my government.

I certainly agree it is scary. I hope your city isn't hit by terrorists. Those people are nuts and don't care whom they hurt.

I put the paper, 'Today', in my news folder. I like having it to check on your city.
