trivia: strange realities

been browsing thru my review materials and i came across this space filler...


Hey people, some tough questions for you to answer:

QUESTION 1: If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had eight (8)kids already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded and she had syphilis (S.T.D.), would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Read the next question before scrolling down to the answer of this one.

QUESTION 2: It is time to elect a new world leader, and your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three leading candidates:

Candidate A: Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists. He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B: He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a quart of whisky every evening.

Candidate C: He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an occasional beer and hasn't had any extramarital affairs.

Which of these candidates would be your choice? Decide first, no peeking, then scroll down for the answer.

1. Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt
2. Candidate B is Winston Churchill
3. Candidate C is Adolph Hitler

And by the way: Answer to the abortion question. If you said yes, you just killed Beethoven.

Pretty interesting isn't it? Makes a person think before judging someone.

Remember, amateurs built Noah's Ark!!! Professionals built the Titanic!!!

humor: lawyers jokes

lawyers' lampoons

a man goes into a pet shop to buy a parrot. the shop owner points to three identical parrots on a perch and says, " the parrot on the left costs $500."

" why does it cost so much?" asks the man, incredulous.  the owner says, " well, the parrot knows how to do legal research."

the man then asks about the next parrot and is told that one costs a whooping $1000 because it can do everything the other parrot can do, plus it knows how to write a brief that will win any case in any court.

naturally, the increasingly startled man asks about the third parrot and is told that it costs $2000! he asks, " what can it do?"

" to be honest," the owner replies, " i have never seen it do a thing but the other two parrots call him Senior Partner."

legal: evidence-testimonial privy

rules of court: rule 130, sec. 25

before, this objection could only be invoked in a criminal case where the parents or other direct ascendants, or children or other direct descendants were charged with an offense. now, it can also be invoked in a civil case.

actually, an individual is not disqualified to become a witness against his ascendants or descendants. but if he does not like to testify against them then that is his privilege and he cannot be compelled to do so.

here again, the law wants to maintain harmonious relations among members of the same family and to preserve filipino family solidarity.

when a descendant is presented as a prosecution witness, the defense counsel should see to it that he is informed of his privilege not to testify against his parents or ascendants, whether in a criminal or civil case. through inaction the privilege can be lost...

razorskarz Vs Delusive:

Sent from Anonymous No Subject 2009-08-15 - 3:32:55 PM

Hi, I am looking for a certain someone with a certain set of 'special skills'.

A particular person, who I previously thought a lot of, has gone behind my back. This person, I never want to see again, If you catch my drift... Make it happen.

Be warned, they're not an easy target, she can certainly take a few punches. Depending on how strong you are, you may need to group with some friends and attack her all at the same time. Even if you're not the one to land the final hit on her, I will still reward you.

Finding her shouldn't be a hard task; she goes by the alias "Delusive".

places: pagadian city

after so many years..i'm finally threading my footsteps on the very roads and sidewalks that i've walk on during my childhood days....

yea! the city of my birth that tugs on my heartstrings like a pretty collegiala in the campus of sweet, so full of possibilities...

it's been sooo long since i've been here...most of my sidetrips were just i get to experience the city's nightlife...tonite were watching a beauty pageant in the nearby gym and get to see the local beauties! LOL
HIGHLIGHTS: the JSCSC beauty pageant... a friend named weiwe and myself decided to take a look at the beauty pageant held near the nearby 'capitolyo' on a not yet completed gym(already functional of course)..the venue itself is spectacular..the building comprises eight circular columns some 6-9 meters in height carrying its barrel type roof of three semi circular vaults...the stage being a focal point of its design harmonizing with its curvilinear theme...admirable in a way adding a gem in the city's tree-studded landscape...

on to the pageant..we were standing on the left side of the stage ,,some 3m from its edge...that way we could see the contestants walk laterally on the entire width of the stage before speaking and introducing themselves to the ecstatic audience gathered from the several,,many state colleges of the province..we went through the entire process of closely scrutinizing the college girls and i made my choice..yes..the beauty from 'Dumingag' state college..a blend of local and hispanic-hindu blood caught my attention and eventually my approval...the voluptuous curves and the almond eyes ,,then the sweetest smile as she glanced my way and gave me a wink..yea..hahha..i must have been dreaming...for a while i thought i was in brazil..immersed in the sensual allure of the hot they say "muy calliente!" then i realized..this is pagadian..i felt a sense of pride...with these world class beauties...what could ever go wrong?

my first night here while hangin around in a nearby watering hole...i almost got picked up by a meztisa lookin wife of a local doctor...hahaha
proly their own way of welcoming back a long lost son of the city...( though i'm not that ez to get! hehehe)...nah..she was just too boozed up and stupid enuf to try to pick me up(yea..guys sometimes play hard to get...its not just the monopoly of women...tihiiii!

a stroll by the city hall streets yesterday gave me a lovely afternoon appreciating the several species of local ornamental plants in pots and in garden bags...some species i did recognize but most were simply spectacular and amazing..i dint realized the richness of the areas flora until that late afternoon stroll...dang! i should have brought my digital camera with me which i left in my quarters of our davao residence...

across the street are stalls that sell fried bananas( the breed for cooking not the one eaten raw and ripe)...turon and the ordinary ones sell at 2.50 each... i bought 20 pesos worth which the pretty lass placed in a brown paper bag and further wrapped with a thin red plastic bag..the locals call 'salopin'...

in another stall further next block are severals stalls for the beer crazed citizens...small cubed pork meat barbecue sells at a peso each and a big pile of it is ready for serving in the front long table...i swear i could munch down a hundred sticks of these..LOL

the regional center which was previously located in Zamboanga City has finally taken root here.. this was resisted by the city of zamboanga in its initial introduction during Cory Aquino's term...but only implemented recently during GMA's term after a much studied decision by the country's highest court of law...

the city is busy flexing its muscle for its construction industry and several big projects are on-going in the city's major streets.. a structure that you cant miss is the Gaisano Mall which has recently opened here... the rolling terrain of the city center makes it a formidable challenge for every architect who wishes to give his offering to the the art and science of building design and construction..yeah! flat ground is such a bore for us architects...

hmmm...and i got to stroll at the wharf area were several hobbyist were engaged in their fishing lines...they could get fishes like talakitok, kitang, and dangit! whew! mom got so interested with the fishes but i had to warn her not to disturb them as the sport required lots of silence for good catches!

stay tuned!(will be updated when the opportunity allows)

law: declaration of state policies and principles

updates on constitutional law:

doctrine: state policies and principles are not self-executory... they merely serve as a guideline in the enactment of laws by the legislature...

exceptions: the right to ecological balance as exemplified in the oposa v. factoran case with regard to the granting of 'timber licensing' by the DENR where the SC held that children with the representation of their parents and/ or legal guardians have the proper standing in court to demand for a balance in the ecological system...

so there it goes, that brings us back to the state principles and policies on the controversial ' health bill' months ago.. will it be declared 'unconstitutional?

answer is in the doctrine...
all for now...

current events: clobbered in the golf course

this site takes a stand against the irresponsible use of force.

in the recent controversy that hit the blogscene between the sec. of agrarian reform's family and that of a private citizen, in the person of mr. de la paz.

one glaring picture was that presented by the security personnel of the golf course..

he related in his testimony that when he arrived at the scene after the mauling...he saw mr. de la paz and son bloodied while mr. pangandaman and sons were also there so with their 'bodyguards' armed with 'high caliber' weapons.

this scene alone will tell us that there was an intimidating presence of a far more superior force against a father and his 14 yr. old son so with the 18 yr. old daughter, bambee.

and they were at the receiving end of an unjustified use of force...senseless violence!

a 14 yr. old may resort to the use of force, instinctively, when exposed to the acts committed against his father. only in a dysfunctional family is it deemed not possible but neither is the reaction totally improbable.

this is what connects us all. you do as much as raise an accussing finger on the face of either my mom or dad and i can guarantee you a fury like you've never before seen in your life.

to the young, a father is a hero, a role model. within the ranks of batman, superman, or say braveheart. no father in his right mind would expose the children to any form of danger.

that is human nature and all the lies in the world cannot change that.

the law only aggravates an act of physical injury when it is committed against a public official. it is silent with regard to a reversal in the situation.

relative to committing an offense on the parents within the full view of the offspring, we have under our penal code considered as an aggravating circumstance the said scenario a provision in the crime of rape.

though they similarly take away human dignity in varying degrees.

opinion: philippine law

the country has proly the best system of law in all of asia. this is basically due the influence of the highly evolved "american justice system." though we borrowed a lot from the french civil code due to the spanish influence and heritage.

however, no matter how good our system of laws is. there are various influences that affect their application or jurisprudence.

neither does it mean that because a law is not used or a statute is being left to oblivion that it would warrant the status of non-existence. this is not true. we think the law does not exist because they are not being applied or enforced. this is wrong. the reason why laws are not being applied is due mostly to the failure to prosecute. they are however, effective, binding, or enforceable until amended or over-ruled by a subsequent law or statute.

the failure to prosecute results when protagonists, that is, plaintiff and defendant decide on some settlements rather than apply the natural course of the process. except for violations which involves the sovereign power of government, this is what happens to most cases.

lawyers are expensive, and magistrates or judges are not perceived to be fair or just or simply easily bribed and threatened with violence such as by hired 'hitmen' for the adversely affected party. the higher in stature a person is in society the more difficult it is to prosecute. compounded by the 'padrino system' and 'cloak-and-dagger' culture.

however, prevailing circumstances does not negate the existence of law. it only confirms the tediousness of the process and its necessity. it remains a challenge to government and to law enforcement in the end where" justice is to be served."

after all we are bound as citizens in the idea of a regime under the "rule of law." a government and society failing in this has lost the right to exist when it fails to recognize and observe that basic democratic inspiration. it will only operate as a matter of transition until the people will realize that a new order by sovereign agreement, based on unalterable historical circumstances, will have to be formed. when the time comes...once it presents itself as a realization. it will be indestructible...
