Bago ang balita, isa munang patalastas. Arghhhh.
Dalawang Linggo, hindi ko natanggap yong request ko for my MRI and blood test. This is the second time na "nawala" sa mail. Sino naman kaya ang magkakainterest noon, not unless, akala nila na prescription na hindi ko naman ginagamit dahil direct na sa pharmacy ang mga refills at new prescriptions ko? Isa pa hindi naman nila pwedeng gamitin yon. Eniwey, I maintained my composure. Breathe in, breathe out. I am okay, I am okay. Arghhhh
Tapos nanonood ako ng isang bagong series about a man who can see dead people. Nakita niya ang dati niyang asawa at nakakausap niya na para bang buhay pa. Hindi ganoon sa totoo anoh. Pero ang kinainisan ko, nagpaMRI yong doctor (siya pala, nahiga lang doon sa MRI machine) nang walang preparation, walang pre MRI blood test. Oh well. For a neurosurgeon na role niya, bakit igoogle niya kung ano ang brain tumor at schizoprenia? Kailangan siguro ng consultant nila from the hospital.
Ngayon sa ating balita: (forwarded ng brod ko para i-blog ko) May binabasa kasi akong libro ngayon about Japanese culture, seppuku (hara-kiri) samurai, and other stuff.
It was one of my favorite expressions when someone complimented the way I laughed, PATENTED yan, the way I walked, tsunami like, tumba ang madaanan, PATENTED YAN.
Ano ba ang patent? A patent is a right created by law which permits an inventor to exclude others from making, using, or selling the invention for a certain period of time.
Now, bakit natin pinag-uusapan ang patent eh wala naman siguro kayong balak ipa-patent ang mukha ninyo (lol)?
Kasi kung may mga solons tayo na nagpafile ng bills na nagpapaigkas sa ating mga kilay kagaya ng Anti-planking, kagaya ng pagpalit ng mga pangalan ng kalye, basahin ninyo itong mga applications para sa patent.
In showing the ridiculousness of the patent system, there are a few patents that stand out that get cited pretty often. Among them are Patent #6,004,596 on making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich without the crust,(papatent ko rin ang aling ko?) patent #6,368,227 showing a method of swinging on a swing sideways and patent #5,443,036 explaining a method for "exercising a cat" by pointing a laser pointer and "selectively redirecting said beam out of the cat's immediate reach to induce said cat to run and chase said beam and pattern of light around an exercise area."
At ngayon ay ang patent to build a SNOWMAN. Sabi sa application. Arghh
The history of the snow man or snow woman is unknown. But, I have to say this. Whoever the first person was to think to form snow into a human figure was a genius. For untold years thereafter, children and adults alike have been thrilled and received joy in making and watching others make snowmen, err women. You know what I mean. At any rate, what is remarkable is that no one has ever thought, or at least reduced to practice, a way to make snow people easy and fun.Pinaysaamerika
