The Art Of Writing Unbiased Articles

I found an article on the wikipedia which provides guidelines and rules of the thumb on how to write unbiased, objective articles. In their terminology, POV (point of view) is a biased statement, as oposed to NPOV (neutral point of view) which is an unbiased statement. They stress the importance that, an unbiased article can include a POV; but to ensure that the whole article is not biased, these articles need to site more than one POV in an objective, non-judgemental approach.
I encourage you to read the full article

Lost And Delirious: A Lesbian Love Story

Lost and delirious is almost just another love story, but with a slight twist. The heros of this film are three girlfiriends, two of which are lovers. Although this kind of plot is not unique to this film, i think lost and delirious is really hell of a story. Recommended!

"RAGE MORE!", Paulie's favorite quote sums up all that you can to expect from her character in that movie. A wild passionate character, loaded with strong determination and a nerve to stand for what she believes. Paulie's love, Tory, on the other hand, tries hard to be a model of what her parents expect her to be, and when her relationship with Paulie was compromised, being afraid to lose her parents' support denies Paulie of her love and starts looking for a boyfriend to prove that she is straight.
Mary, who is called Mouse, is Paulie's and Tory's friend, a shy, honest, and loving character. She cannot take sides. She tries her best to stand next to Paulie in her hard-time, in the time Tory cannot be there for here.

Would U Let The Covers Fall Away?

From a cool song for Avril Lavign called "Naked", i quote:
You see right through me
And I can't hide
I'm naked
Around you
And it feels so right

I'm tyring to remember
Why I was afraid
To be myself and let the
Covers fall away


Avril calls it "Naked"; for someother people it is called "Striptease", and if it is caught on tape, it becomes "Pornography".... whatever u choose to call it.... would u do it?

here is full lyrics of "Naked"

PS: Naked is a really cool song, if u have never listened to it.... well, u should! Its one of my favorite songs!

FUCK FUCK 00100

Hey, it's on
Everybody knows this song

Ain't it a shame that you can't say "Fuck"
Fuck's just a word
And it's all fucked up

Cool Geeky Stuff

My friend Ghaith keeps his tradition of hooking me to his cool inventions! man wtf, thats cool shit....
Hardware interfacing is one of the most important links between hardware programming and software programming, and is probably the gap that separates computer engineering students from computer science students.
If you are a computer engineering student who has no idea of how to make similar circuits, the "digital logic design" course, and later on, its lab will provide you of the first steps in the correct direction. I didnt take the digital logic design lab yet! cant wait till i take that course, and Ghaith isnt making that wait easy at all! :S .... if i were a girl, looking at these circuits, my pussy would be drooping now ;) :P

Rockbitch: A Satanic Rock Band

Few days ago, i download a live concert called "bitchcraft", featuring "rockbitch". rockbitch is a band of Matriarchal satanists, it consists mostly of lesbian whores. the concert is really cool, and presents several satanic rituals and beliefs related to matriarchal satanism.
This page briefs the belief of rockbitch. bitchcraft is a real rock party, y'all rock fans dont miss watching it.

The band has been awarded the "diamond condom award" back in 1998.
i picked this quote from the award page:
The group ROCKBITCH are six women and one man that have emerged from a larger community of people (mainly female), who live a life based on a different code of behavior than that of fear and distrust.Believing, as they do, that Sex is the basic engine of Life. That, of all species, humans have the greatest potential for a harmonious way of life based on an elevated consciousness through sexual sharing.


here is a torrent for the concert. (you can use utorrent to download the file.) the download size is 800MBs.

PS: please note that the concert includes nudity, and explicit sexual shows.

Systems Of Belief

As i was browsing the internet, i stumbled on a reasonably cool quiz, its about different systems of beliefs, and down to which one u most resemble.

i took the quiz, then after some minuits later, took it once again,,, thus i got two results... i generally do this because at different times u answer the same questions differently... so u gotta check for that!

one obvious difference is how much i scored on 'cultural creative' with only 38% on first go, and astonishing 69% on the second go! i quite honestly dont know what this 'cultural creativity' is!
other scores were stable, and had only a slight marginal difference!

check the quiz at: What is Your World View? (updated)
You scored as Materialist. Materialism stresses the essence of fundamental particles. Everything that exists is purely physical matter and there is no special force that holds life together. You believe that anything can be explained by breaking it up into its pieces. i.e. the big picture can be understood by its smaller elements.

Bonsai Kitten: The Proof Of Cruelty

A proof of concept prank website, attempting to demonstrate the true nature of humans.... The site is called Bonsai kittens.
The site has tendency to offend anyone with sympathy towards other humans or animals alike... There is no real evidence wether this is fake or not, but it probably is just a hoax according to some website(s).

Its time to be proud we are born humans!

Who's to say, what's fair to say, and what not to say?

In a controversial song for eminem called "Rain Man", i quote this part: (the title is also a quote from the same song)

You find me offensive? I find you offensive
For finding me offensive
Hence if I should draw a line on any fences
If so to what extense if
Any, should I go? 'Cause it's getting expensive
Being on the other side of the courtroom on the defensive
They say that I cause extensive
Pshycological nerve damage to the brain when I go to lenghts this,
Far at other people's expenses
I say your all just too god damn sensitive
It's censorship
And it's down right blasphomous
Listen to shit now cause I won't stand for this (Full lyrics)


The whole song is great with numerous cool mental images teasing your brain. Eminem should not be (and is probably not) the only man fighting hypocrisy selled in this world through bullshit... Man keep it up, and those who are offended are pussies and hypocrites not worth the headphones they put on their ears!

Terrorists Bomb Three Hotels In Amman

Amman the capital of Jordan has been the target of some suicide bombers.
I dont have much to say about the subject....
I'll suffice with few words: FUCK YOU REAL MOTHER-FUCKERS!!

We are against terrorism, and today, we now have extra motivation to say FUCK OFF to terrorism!

DIE MOTHER-FUCKERS.... DIE....

Edit: this event reminds me of a previous post, most of us simply dont understand how some people carry all this hate in their heads... i'd say this is a case of when shit happens.

Edit2: i have came accross this touching picture and thought it might help understand the pain of the victims of such barbarian terrorist acts:

Queen Rania of Jordan wipes the tears of a wounded woman at a hospital in Amman (this picture is taken from arabia.msn.com news section)

Spyware Is Getting Too Far

in recent news, Sony is caught installing spyware as part of music CDs protection. the spyware is illegal software, and it was belived that it is being installed by less reputable software makers (until Sony decided to break the rule)! attempting to uninstall the spyware with traditional anti-spyware tools makes it impossible to boot into windows..... thats plain bullshit! to make the matters worse, the spyware installs with autorun, so all you need is insert the CD in the drive, and there you go, u'r infected! there was no mention of 3rd party spyware being bundled with copy-protected music CDs in the EULA or anyother document: guess Sony has just destroyed its own reputation, and is waiting for the first person to start a lawsuit! i hope someone will get their asses, because the last thing we need is broken trust with reputable software sources! that shit is now haunting the computer industry!

click here for a blog entry of the investigation

Update: Microsoft has updated its spyware definitions as to remove Sony's DRM software!

Update2: Sony says it will discontinue distribution of its DRM software, which could pose a "rootkit" security threat to users.

Shit Happens

Yeah, yeah, thats nothing new... Its just been a long time since i posted something so i thought: 'lets write about something! or actually anything!'
You know this feeling when nothing seems to go right..... its not exactly that something bad is going on, its just a bad hunch! Thats how it feels for me my whole life... insecurities neglected by apathy; hopes crushed by insignificance; decisions abandoned by lack of faith, and fear of rejection.....
thats just how it seemed all of the time!

Shit happens, in other words, anything you do can get fucked up.... thats what i know.

Have a nice day :P

Read A Review On VB.NET 2005

visual studio .net 2005 is about to be released (expected date: Nov 2005), this release is a great step in software development. so if u are a software developer who still uses visual studio 6, its time to move on.... thats my opinion, back when visual studio 2002, and later when 2003, were released, i wasnt too keen to upgrade... i simply though that .net simply needed to mature... with this release it has matured enough for my personal taste.
a friend of mine agrees, and thus spared a little of his time to write a review of this coming release. if you want to know more about the new features that .net introduces, maybe his review will be an inspiration.

Its A Crazy World Out There

In this thread on some forums, is a collection of some weird news from the year 2005.
the story i really liked is the last one (at the time i post this). it goes like this:
Man Digs Up Corpse at Cemetery to Fake His Own Death
GEORGETOWN, TX. - Molly Daniels, who was accused of faking her husband's death to collect insurance benefits, pleaded guilty to charges of insurance fraud and hindering apprehension. Facing 20 years in prison, a jury will recommend her sentence.

Her husband, Clayton Wayne Daniels, is currently in jail awaiting trial on charges of arson. The husband stands accused of digging up a body from a cemetery, putting it in his car and setting the vehicle on fire.

The body was that of 81-year-old Charlotte Davis, who has been dead since 2003. Afterwards, the wife introduced her "new boyfriend" to her 4-year-old son. The "boyfriend" was actually her husband with his hair dyed black.

Elfen Lied: Greatest Anime Series I Ever Watched

This anime exceeds the expectations of any casual TV-drama fan, its one of a kind story shows some genuine creativity and deep skills of the author(s) to move almost any human...
According to one fan site, "Elfenlied" is the german version of "elf song", pronounced as if it were spelled in english "Elfenleet".

The main character of the story is more of a "killing machine", its a mutant that escaped a secret facility where she was quarantined for over five years... that secret facility quarantines all diclonius (human-like beings with horns on their heads), and conducts several bloody tests on them.

Lucy (the main character) after escaping the facility gets shot and falls off a cliff into the ocean, aparently causing split personality disorder... her new personality is peaceful and literally a new baby, she even forgot her mother language, and she needs to learn language from scratch... but the killer side comes into action whenever she is in danger.

The secondary character is guy who came back to his home town after almost eight years... back then eight years ago, his whole family was murdured brutally infront of his eyes on a train, causing him severe trauma, and then he was sent to a hospital where he was forced to erase all his past memories of that period.... amoung the stuff he had to forget were his promises to his cousin, who after all these years welcomes him to his home town... she has not forgotten the promises, and she actually was willing that he would still rememmber... but in vain....
Aparently there are much more complicated memories that he had forgotten, and more promises waiting to be fulfilled...
But i will not be telling you the whole story,, so my recommendation is that you watch this series because it is really good drama, and you might really need the tissue this time ;) :P


here you will find the torrent for this series.
if u are not sure how to use this file, here is a starting point.
note that the download size 2GBs so you'll need some kind broadband to download it.
if you already watched it, you might be interested in this fan site.

Virtual Machines And Microsoft's Virtual PC Program

following my hardware upgrade, my computer have become powerfull enough to run a cool technology called "Virtutal Machines", this technology is actually computer hardware emulated through software; so effectively you can create an imaginary computer within your environment and install and test software on it seperately from the currently installed OS. this software have been a great help when trying to test my several linux distributions that i downloaded recently from the internet. you don't have to worry about messing with the new OS at the risk of deleting your data, you dont have to worry anymore about re-partitioning your hard disk... better yet you dont have to log off windows to work on linux, you can do both at the same time on the same screen.
i highly suggest testing for people who are interested in technology, and those whose hardware can support its load.... i can run maintaining very acceptable performace two virtual machines with my 1GB RAM, i guess anyone with 512MBs or more can support at least one virtual machine.

there are several programs that can emulate a computer... the one i used is microsoft's virtual pc, others include another well-known product in that field VMware.

To read more about virtual machine check here and here
Download microsoft's virtual pc 45-days trial edition from here

Computer Hardware Upgrade

after installing ADSL my computing requirements increased.... more downloads meant need for higher storage capacity.... more programs downloaded meant more free RAM needed... OS downloads meant need for a testing medium for these OSes.
two days ago i got 1GB RAM, and a new 80GBs HDD so making the total storage capacity of my computer 200GBs.
installing new RAMs was a little problematic, especially when i tried to use my old RAMs with my new RAMs, i had to stop being greedy and have enough with my newly bought 1GB RAMs. the hard disk was more of a problem: initially i had two problems, i had no space for my new hard disk to place it in, so i had to remove the floppy temporarily and place the hard disk in its place... the other problem that i had no electricity plugs left for it, so again i temporarily used my cd's plug instead. today i sent my computer to the maintenance and they managed to allocate place for the new hard disk and plug it to electricity.
i love my computer more now :D

Negativity is a talent

take the good old example Dr. Becker.....
recently i bumped into a page promoting negativity and hate, although this guy is not stylish in his view as Dr. Becker (dont ask me why i luv that show :P ), i kinda liked the page, although i dont totally agree with views promoted in it.
here is the link: http://maddox.xmission.com/

PS: under no condition, i claim resemblance between the views of Dr. Becker, and the author of that site .ie. they are not similar in anyway

PS: the page contains some offensive content including inapropriate language, racism (the author is not nessarily racist), sexism, and other types of hostility.

Soon to go Broadband

yes, in our pathetic country (Jordan) its a mile-stone to subsicribe to ADSL, more pathetically, i am getting ADSL Lite (128 kbps)..... anyways, im so excited about it by now, since i used to go dial-up at speeds around (20 kbps) as our phone lines sucked....
Nice Enough.......
we paid for the initial payment, replaced our in-house phone wirings (which were only part of our phone lines problem), and probably tommorow the main phone wiring should be replaced and that is probably when the service can (and will) be provided!! :D

Update: Now, two days later; Broardband is ON :D

The guy i was bad-mouthing yesterday was me!!

In the very first semester of the university i was wondering how geeky the guy who comes first probably is! i wondered how many hours he probably spends with books around him! in skl, i was nvr the first, usually third or even fourth!!
the second semester came, and it seems that i was the first in my department!!
i always thought that success in academic field does not imply failure in other fields: today i am concerned this might only have been my excuse to be 'smarter'...... i would argue that i dont study much, and i am not a book nerdie...... yet somehow im still a nerdie: for example, who would start programming computer at age of 11? who would get 100/100 in physics in university without even giving a dime? who finds that mathematics is only a matter of 'common sense'? who would solve an exam in less than half the time set for it and get it all right?
the reason i am thinking about these stuff is that i am actually 'distant' from ppl..... and even if i was smart not nerdish this will not change that i have got the first in university in the first semester......... intelligence and nerdiness are different, but i am afraid both are hell!
maybe i am the person i nvr wanted to be............................

Excitement: Is There Such A Thing?

ave u ever felt excitement?? i would sadly say: never!
how pathetic is that? how cold is that? how sad is that!!
is it just me, or is the world so cold!

the latest place that i asked for thrill was in a pretty hard-impact car accident... cornering at speed around 140 km\h the car slips off its way, hits the sidewalk so violently that it jumps off the road flying in air for like a split second with noise being heard 3 blocks away!!! the repairing bill says it all: 1200 Jordanian Dinar (around 1000$)!!!!

the accident is horrible, but there is something that seems way more horrible: i get out of the car, look at it as if nothing happened! i wasnt even scared a bit! it was only god's mercy that i got out of it unhurt at this speed! yet i was not moved a milli!! how scary is that??
