Read things properly!

I went to watch Terminator Salvation last night, it was quite an enjoyable movie. It was not at all a lowlight of my night. What occurred before the screening however, was. So I'm sitting in the theater with my friends watching the advertisements and waiting for the film to start. This woman in her 20s walked into our row and asks us whether we're in her allocated seats. Before any of us could respond, she rudely started saying "if you are, you need to move..." A few seconds later, her boyfriend walked in and told her their seats were actually in the row in front of ours. The bitch then just turned around and went to her seat, leaving her boyfriend to apologize for HER behaviour. From this encounter, I observed that:
  • The human condition is prone to jumping to conclusions
  • Arrogance breeds stupidity
  • Stupid people don't read things properly (or don't care to check the facts first)
  • There was perhaps an element of prejudice involved because me (as an Asian person) could not possibly have read my ticket correctly and sat in the right seat
So, to the stupid woman who thinks she's so smart: be careful about what you say and how you say it, the next person you do it to may not take it so lightly.

Exe Crew Dyno Day - RE Customs

I haven't done anything to the car (engine-wise) since the last dyno day. Seeing as it was a different dyno this time, I was curious to see how the RE Customs dyno read by using my previous Protek dyno figure as a comparison.

The final reading was 168.2 rwkw. The previous Protek reading with the car in its current state was 167.3 rwkw. So, the car's still healthy and both dynos seem very similarly calibrated.

Google Wave

Google are developing a new communication and collaboration tool that will run through the web browser. I'm keen to try this out and looking forward to its release.

Here is a preview.
