Anti-Social Media: Think before you dick

This online editor better start thinking real quick and stop clicking Like buttons on Facebook.


Two staff members are about to hit send buttons on emails indicating their resignations.

This after only working six months or so for the news website that he supposedly heads.

What could be wrong in the office? Is it because the editor-in-chief is an award-winning journalist and is always willing to tell everyone about it? Or is it because the boss doesn’t make any mistakes at all, despite questionable news judgment?

No one knows. And apparently, no one cares, not even the top brass.

As a result, more than 40 or so employees have resigned in the past two years–a figure enough to fill up the current staff.

Exodus! Movement of Jah people!

Among those who left are two who have defected to another network, one who turned NGO, and one assistant who supposedly ran away with money. How much? Again, no one knows.

But one thing is clear: the company certainly wrote 30–or is it 20?–to that.

Jollibee: Guardian of Moral Values

So Jollibee Food Corp. pulled its ads from the show Willing Willie due to the Jan-Jan controversy.

The same Jollibee Food Corp. whose mascots dance like this in children’s birthday parties:

Comment from audience: “Hahaha, ang laswa!”

Now, if the outrage over Willing Willie was that it’s morally wrong to expose children to lewd dancing (PERIOD!), then shouldn’t this also be morally objectionable and equally outrageous?

If the outrage was over child abuse, well, we’ve discussed that already.

Supreme Court Says Plagiarism is OK, Blames Microsoft Word

Plagiarism during medieval times

The Philippine Supreme Court has cleared their pal fellow judge Associate Justice Mariano del Castillo from plagiarising because, allegedly, he didn’t intend to plagiarise in the first place. Instead, it was Microsoft Word’s fault for not detecting the plagiarised material that he inserted into his document:

The court also said it was not Del Castillo’s or his researcher’s fault that Miscrosoft Word, the program used in writing the decision, cannot detect “copied” research material without the proper attributions.

“Microsoft Word program does not have a function that raises an alarm when original materials are cut up or pruned. The portions that remain simply blend in with the rest of the manuscript, adjusting the footnote number and removing any clue that what should stick together had just been severed,” the Supreme Court said.

The newest member of the Supreme Court, Associate Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, criticized her colleagues for the ruling, claiming it would set a bad precedent. Just like Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Unleashes Racist Hatorade On Manny Pacquiao

Floyd Mayweather Jr., the American boxer currently in negotiations to be Pacquiao’s next punching bag, is caught on video in a racist rant against the Filipino boxing champion and congressman, who he calls a “little yellow chump”:

“As soon as we come off vacation, we’re going to cook that little yellow chump. We ain’t worried about that. So they ain’t gotta worry about me fighting the midget. Once I kick the midget ass, I don’t want you all to jump on my dick. So you all better get on the bandwagon now. … Once I stomp the midget, I’ll make that motherfucker make me a sushi roll and cook me some rice.”

To which Pacquiao’s only response should be: “Nigger, please”.

(UPDATE: Mayweather has apologized for the rant. He says he was only joking around. Hold the sushi rolls.)

Filipino Finance Exec Sneaks His Sperm Into Bottled Water

Michael Lallana - Got Milk?

Oh he got it alright.

You know how Filipinos take the success and international fame of an individual and makes it a triumph of the whole nation? Well that cuts both ways.

Meet Michael Kevin Lallana, a finance executive in California, who allegedly put his sperm in his co-worker’s bottled water.

This is, according to the Orange County DA, the second time Lallana has bequeathed his coworker with semen-laced H2O. The first time, on January 14, he left some of his “vitamin” water on her desk; she drank it, felt sick and poured it out. The second time happened in March, after both had been transferred from Newport Beach to Orange—but this time, the woman wised up and sent the bottle to a private lab for testing. The lab got back to her in June, with the results:Semen.

This is a dark day for our nation.

Filipino Students Develop the Video Game Equivalent of Mother Teresa, Wins $25k

A group of students from Ateneo and UP won first prize at Microsoft’s Imagine Cup Game Design competition by creating a game that asks players to “battle poverty, gender inequality and environmental degradation and save the world by social action and volunteerism.”

Mighty big responsibility for a video game.

The article is silent on details about the game itself. Even some screenshots would be nice.  I would seriously like to get a copy and have a go at it to see how it plays.

Congratulations, Team By Implication!

(Update: Philippine Online Chronicles, our Internet betters, has a feature on Team By Implication. They have video.)

Key witness in Maguindanao Massacre is murdered

Truly an epic fail:

“He was supposed to be one of our strongest witnesses,” prosecutor Harry Roque told Agence France-Presse. “He saw, and participated in, the killings and could have directly named in court those involved.”

And apparently this wasn’t the first case:

His death comes two months after an uncle of another witness was also shot and killed, in what authorities said was part of a plan to intimidate those speaking out against the Ampatuan clan.

A plan. The dastardly villains have a plan. In the meantime, is this case even progressing?

UPDATE: DepEd Fears The Wrath Of God, Backs Down on Sex Education

MRI of sexual juxtaposed with the Shroud of Turin

Sex, No! Jesus, Yes!

Outdated moral values trumps progressive education.  The Department of Education has indefinitely postponed the integration of Sex Education into the school curriculum, pending consultation with the Inquisition Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines.

Valisno clarified that the deferment was not a reaction to Monday’s filing of a class suit by Ang Kapatiran Party (AKP) before the Regional Trial Court of Quezon City seeking to stop the department from teaching sex education in public and private elementary and high schools.

Sure it’s not.

Excuse Me Ma’am, You Seem to Have Your Church in My State

Former lawyer of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) Jo Aurea Imbong has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Education for incorporating sex education into the curriculum.

“We have examined the modules being used by DepEd and found that it promotes family planning, reproductive health and demographic development in subjects such as Mathematics, Science and English.”

Heaven forbid.

UPDATE: DepEd backs down.
