what is logic in bolehland

in malaysia bolehland, if satire is not taken as satire but the truth, and if the imaginations of the macc prosecutor that a person strangles himself is the truth, then this doctor's logic makes more sense.

I love this Doctor !

Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it... Don't waste on exercise. Everyting wear out eventually. Speed up heart, not make live longer; that like say you extend life of car by drive faster. Want live longer? Take nap.
Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables? 
A: Ahhhh, what cow eat? Hay and corn. What are these? Vegetables. Steak nothing more than efficient mechanism of deliver vegetable to body system. Need grain? You eat chicken. Beef also good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And pork chop can give 100% recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: No, not at all. Wine made from fruit. Brandy... distilled wine. That means they take water out of fruity bit; get even more of goodness that way. Beer also made out of grain. Bottoms up!

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: If you have body and you have fat, ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, ratio is two to one, etc.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Cannot think of single one, sorry. My philosophy: No Pain...Good!

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU NOT LISTENING!!! .... Foods fried in vegetable oil. How getting more vegetables be bad for you?

Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not! When you exercise muscle, it get bigger. You should only do sit-ups if want bigger stomach.

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: You crazy? HELLO ...   Cocoa  beans! Vegetable!!! Cocoa beans best feel-good food around!
Q: Is swimming good for your figure? 
A: If swimming good for figure, explain to me whale.

Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle? 
A: Hey! 'Round' is shape!
Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets. 

AND. . . .
For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies:
1. The Japanese eat very little fat 
And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat
And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine 
And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
4 The Italians drink a lot of red wine 
And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats
And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
Eat and drink what you like. Speaking American English is apparently what kills you.

isaiah and empire colloquium

This colloquium (sponsored by Laidlaw-Carey Graduate School in Auckland, 
New Zealand) will explore cultural and theological implications of 
aspects of the book of Isaiah in the context of empire. Potential papers 
might include, but are by no means limited to:

* readings of particular texts in the light of ancient imperial contexts
* studies of the redaction history of Isaiah
* Isaiah (or a particular text) in contemporary "imperial" or
post-colonial contexts
* theological reflections
* cross cultural perspectives on Isaiah in imperial contexts
* contemporary political reflections

The colloquium will take place in Auckland, NZ, on 14th-15th February 
2011 (this is summertime in NZ but after schools have begun for the 
year). Since we intend to publish a book with the same title in 2011, 
draft papers will be circulated among participants in 2010 and final 
form submitted by April 15th 2011.

Please send enquiries and abstracts before 30th September 2010 to:

Dr Tim Bulkeley or
Dr Tim Meadowcroft


p.s. very tempted to write a paper on 'contemporary political reflections' based on isaiah 40-55 and malaysian politics. but time doesn't permit and time is a luxury for an academic dean, OT lecturer, assigned pastor, occasional writer, p/t doctoral student, and family guy!!
