When I saw a friend some 20 minutes back twit with that hash tag, I thought that was freaking hilarious. Why would anyone just think of that? With twitter, any topic can be the next trending topic. People from the twitverse has come up with some of the most bizaare of answers on what they thought would be the worst lap dance ever.
Answers include the following:
-Who Let The Dogs Out
-God Bless America
-Dora The Explorer Song
-If You're Happy And You Know Clap Your Hands
-Friday (Rebecca Black)
-The Itsy Bitsy Spider
-We Are The World
-Mama (Boyz II Men)
-and tons of other songs. I came up with 'Greatest Love of All" from Whitney Houston and "This Is What Dreams Are Made Of" from Lizzie Maguire OST.
Random tweets like these make Twitter a lot more enjoyable.

In support of my earlier statement, I'll say it again. Anti-RH Bill is one piece of bullcrap. The Catholic Church has been forcing the issue about how it is un-Christian and anti-Christlike of pro-RH Bill supporters and how they ignite their faithful into supporting them just shows how cunning and corrupt they really are. They are corrupting the minds of their faithful. Them telling their faithful that it is evil to support such law is a lie and prevents the members to choose for themselves. RH Bill gives the couple a choice if they wanted to form a child or not. Sexual intercourse is more than just about procreating human beings but it is also used to provide for intimate moments and physical bonding between couples. I dunno why staunch anti-RH Bill supporters tend to forget that part.
With every time a woman conceives a child, how sure are we that she really intended to get pregnant and not just a product of a steamy night of copulation? And when she does get pregnant, how sure are we that couples are emotionally and financially mature to raise such a child well? You see, RH Bill gives couples a choice. In light of all this poverty going on around us, the RH Bill will help couples maintain and aim for a higher standard of living. Of course, killing a child from the mother's womb will always be unallowed, unless it provides health hazard to the mother.
And oh, the Catholic Church should back off. They're the devil here.

At least give Kobe Bryant some props for making it look easy for the Dallas Mavericks.
In a very un-LA Lakers type of manner, the 16-time champs Los Angeles Lakers have barely given the Dallas Mavericks some competition during their West semis encounter. They've been swept 4-0. They made Dirk Nowitzki look like a god, they made all Laker haters a happier people.
In the most diplomatic of ways, the great Laker Kareem Abdul-Jabbar made this statement about the Laker loss:
Game 4 between Dallas vs. Lakers was a demonstration of total domination by Dallas. They completely dominated the Lakers in every category. Dallas got easy baskets in the paint because their guards were able to penetrate the Laker D and they shot the lights out from long range led by Jason Terry shooting 9 of 10 from three point range.
Bynums flagrant fowl on Barea was a prime example of the frustration that the whole Laker team experienced. Prior to this game it has been a close contest but this game was a blowout anyway that you want to look it at. The Dallas bench was really the key to their success. Barea, Terry and Stojacovic were unstoppable coming off the bench and the Lakers just could not keep pace.
I can easily sympathize with Phil because my very last Playoff experience was getting swept by Detroit in 1989. Phil's overwhelmingly successful coaching career will be something that softens this final disappointment. I am sure the Lakers did not want to go out in this manner. There is no joy in Laker land.

|We're down 0-3. Dayyyymmmmmnnn!|
What's even more embarrassing is that we made ourselves look like chickens in front of the mighty Texan crowd in Dallas. The 16-time champs LA Lakers looks like they're headed to a premature summer vacation as the Mavs now hold a commanding 3-0 lead on its West semis encounter.
For the third straight game, the Lakers sissied out during the 4th quarter. It is frustrating for an LA fan to see his team just lose like that, not knowing why things are happening and was to blame for all of it. On the other hand, perennial playoff-chickens Dallas Mavericks seemed to have figured it out as they finally are coming out of its playoff mishaps shadow and vent all of its past frustrations on the Lakers.
All credits to Peja Stojakovic, Jason Kidd and the German behemoth Dirk Nowitzki. That German has been the main reason why Dallas kept on winning over the Lakers. He's been putting up monster figures the past 3 games and what's even more frustrating is that it's as if none of the Lakers were consistent enough to even make this series exciting and fun to watch. All season long, everyone's been criticizing the Lakers' consistency. They're on and then off. On. And then off again. They make all anti-LA fans much happier by coming up short a lot of the time. Having said that, the biggest reason why the Lakers are losing would be the Lakers themselves.
Anyway, this is not the perfect ending to a storied Phil Jackson coaching career. He missed out on a 4th three-peat because of a measly performance from his boys. When champs die, champs give out a fight. So if the Lakers were to lose on Game 4, I hope we'd all see a fighting Lakers squad that will not give it up till the last fraction of a second.

According to BBC right now, Osama Bin Laden is dead.
10:35pm Eastern time, the US President Barack Obama confirmed the death of the suspected international terrorist. His confirmation recounted details regarding the death of Bin Laden:
* Eversince he took his oath of office, he made the capture and/or killing of Osama Bin Laden his top priority.
*That as of August of last year, he received confirmation on the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden on a compound deep into the Pakistani countryside.
*As of last week, the president decided that intelligence he received was sufficient enough and that bigger measures should be made.
*And today, the President ordered an attack at the said compound and have Osama Bin Laden killed.
The President also made it clear a few other important details:
*No civillian casualties
*No American casualties
*This is not a war on Islam
*This is a measure made in cooperation with the Pakistani authorities.
Now the bigger question: Now that Bin Laden is dead, what's next?
