The Kollective MANGA!

The original photo has been resized and compressed so any resulting artifacts are my fault.

The cast has been inked by Daniel
[geocities.com]! I say he did a wonderful job, very nice indeed. I
can’t draw at all, and I was impressed that it only took him 2 hours to
sketch this out. You probably need to read the post
[sixthseal.com] to know what this is about. This is Daniel’s first
draft, so comment if you want him to make changes for the second draft.
It’s a great first draft though, I like how the characters came out.
Eh, I look too feminine in this sketch, gotta submit a change request
to the artist. Haha! Here’s a photo
[sixthseal.com] for the second draft. :) This was taken about two weeks
ago, the pair of jeans that I was talking about isn’t very visible, but
the shirt would be good and it’s nearly a full body length shot. Thanks
buddy!

Walk for your lives!

I remember that I used to stuff things down the overflow protection
hole in sinks when I was younger. You know, the holes that appear on
most sinks to prevent flooding when someone puts the plug in and leaves
the tap running. Anyway, when I was younger I was simply amazed by this
concept and with my vivid imagination, I thought of the hole as the
mouth of the sink, and I used to bestow offerings to it, lest it turns
into an angry sink and rampage or something. I was 13 at that time. :)

Well, I’ve stuffed all sorts of stuff into the hole during my youth.
Small plastic toys, the bony wing part of chicken wings, my sister’s
hairclips. Oh, and those black flat seedless prunes were a perfect fit
too. It’s a wonder my sink’s pipes never got blocked. The worst thing
was, I used to do this to other sinks too, not just my own. I remember
my grandma’s sinks received plenty of offerings in it’s time. :) I got
tired of it after a while though. Rampage on, hungry sink.

A Skateboard and a toilet mop do the horizontal boogie

On my way back from Caulfield, I saw this guy riding a scooter. Not the motorbike kind of
scooter but one of those kick scooters. The kind that looks like the bastard son of a skateboard
and a toilet mop. Anyway, the thing is, this thing was motorized. I’ve never seen those things
before, and it seems to go pretty fast. The shuttle I’m on is moving at around 80km/h and I’ll say
that from my point of reference, the motorized scooter is doing around 20km/h. That guy was riding
on the highway! I wonder what will happen if someone riding a scooter gets involved in a collision
with another vehicle. Are the fuel tanks protected for that eventuality?

Update: I’ve found a manufacturer’s site for these things. Click here.
