Jimbo got very upset by what he saw in The Star newspaper today.
There, on page 3, is a picture of a health personnel, all gowned up with a disposable surgical gown, carrying a baby. The caption was: Fully prepared: Sungai Buloh Hospital personnel donning protective gear to deal with potential A(H1N1) carriers yesterday.
But take a closer look:
The N95 mask (which costs RM 4.50 each) does not even cover the fella’s nose! Improper use of a mask (no matter how good or expensive it is) actually predisposes a person to risk of H1N1 infection!
What kind of info are we telling the entire nation? That you can wear a mask, even wrongly, and think you are ‘fully prepared’??!
Ironically, on page 39 of the same newspaper, we have a picture of a woman (civilian) outside a hospital in Guatemala City and she KNOWS how to don the mask properly!
Fully prepared my A*S!!!

Jimbo suspects his daughter is from outer space.
How else could one explain the way she figured out this math equation:
0 + 0 = 4
Did you just gasp?
Jimbo must have gasped and gagged a thousand times over.
It’s not that she is incapable of doing simple arithmetic. It’s just she’s terribly careless, and (Jimbo suspects) suffers from an ailment that beguiles most of the citizens of this country:
She simply does not care whether she has made a mistake or not.
She got 68% for her Maths. She could have gotten more, if not for her carelessness.
Her friends got more than 80%!
What has this to do with brain surgery, you ask?
Well, Jimbo felt the urge to eat ‘chee cheong fun’ from his favourite shop yesterday and as he stepped into the shop, the lady boss there asked, in a rather loud voice, booming across the length of the restaurant:
“Doctor! Do you know how to do brain surgery? I need you to open up my son’s head and fix it! He scored 27 for his Maths!!!!”
Like Jimbo’s kid, her son is also in Year 4.
And suddenly, Jimbo didn’t feel so disappointed anymore.
Wed, 170609 @ 0700; but it doesn’t mean his kid ain’t grounded….at least until some one can explain how 0+0 equals 4!
