Listening: Somewhere Only We Know by Keane

Watching this song played live in concert just gave me goosebumps all over. It is that brilliant. Maybe I’m feeling the lyrics literally somehow.

Oh, simple thing, where have you gone? I’m getting old and I need something to rely on. So tell me when, you’re gonna let me in. I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin.

Day Internet takes over the world

Ever wonder how long till Internet is going to rule the world completely? You won’t have to wait long now. Seems that a UN survey has found World Wide Web’s domination is almost ¼ complete. Matrix, anyone?

A survey by International Telecommunications Union, an agency of the UN, says nearly a quarter of the world’s 6.7 billion people now use the Internet. Oh, but that is nothing compared to the amount of people using mobile phones worldwide. More than half the global population apparently. Maybe mobile phones will get us first.

Out of curiosity, where do you prefer to sit when checking in with your flight? Personally, my bladder likes the aisle seat if it’s a long journey. Saves me the general awkwardness when I have to grin sheepishly and squeeze my legs over the cramped neighbour at the umpteenth time to the washroom. Turns out, my bladder has been the smart one this whole time.

It somehow knew window seats are not really all that awesome to die for. Now it has been proven fatal. (http://tinyurl.com/ccdzgr) It increases the chances of you getting deep vein thrombosis during a long flight but hey, nothing alcohol wouldn’t cure. The report adds a glass of alcohol prevents blood clotting. A good enough reason for me to get knocked out on a plane.

An interesting piece of news which kept me squealing intermittently like a spider-pig yesterday by the way, this blog just got the highest clicks ever, all thanks to this referrer site. 278 in one night and still counting! Absolutely brilliant. Thanks for the unintentional love, Seattle!
