Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

News spreads fast in Singapore, and within Malaysia too, at least within JB and KL. Sometimes when I read or hear things from people, I really wonder where they get this kinda information from. Let's take a look shall we?
1) The word "cute" means ugly but adorable.
Honestly, I got really ticked off when I heard about this definition. The word cute means attractive in a dainty and pleasing way. I don't know how the above definition came about. Last time people kept saying that cute meant ugly but adorable. Oh really? Let's see some cute pictures then.
Seriously, if you call any of these people (or animals) ugly, I'll whack you upside down! Okay, so maybe the "adorable" part still applies, but how can you call these people UGLY? I know everyone here (except the cat and hamster) and they're universally considered cute in the proper sense, not the retarded one. Geez.
2) Mints kill sperm.
This is even more retarded. Last time my friends and I were at 7-Eleven, and they were seeing what to buy, when one of them bought a Mentos, another asked whether it was mint flavor, all of them burst out laughing and said no way! I was like huh? What's the big deal? They all looked at me like I was some idiot and said something like "Didn't you know mints kill sperm?" I was like WHAT? Since when?! So to check it out, I went online to find out. There's NO SUCH THING. I felt like replying "Didn't you guys know you have no brains?" when I found the truth. However, something I did find that's real (and backed up by at least 4 sources), males who cycle extremely often do have a lower sperm count. Sorry, not trying to be dirty, it's just the truth.
3) Piercing your cartilage will blind you.
This gets a little personal. I have 7 piercings myself, with 4 piercings on the cartilage. If you don't know, the cartilage is the upper area of your ear. When I had a piercing there, I was scrutinized by tons of people! There were people here and there saying I'd be blind, that I was stupid for piercing there and one of my friends even claimed to know someone who was blinded by that piercing. He said that his friend pierced the cartilage, then felt something like string and pulled it, which turned out to blind him. That's one of the most retarded stories ever! Van Gogh cut off his ear and he's one of the most famous artists ever! I had my piercing there and I've got near perfect eyesight! Better than the guy who told me the story in fact. Geez. I looked up the internet to find the source of this crap, hoping to find nothing at all and dismiss it. I found something though... it turns out there was a case of a piercing at the cartilage and the person ended up being blind. Not because of the piercing though! The person had a belly piercing before, and used the antiseptic for the belly piercing for the cartilage one. Antiseptic for body piercings are much, much stronger than the ones used for ears, and a certain chemical caused blindness. Well, that's what I read anyway, I don't know if its real. What I do know is, I'm not BLIND!
4) People calling Mas Selamat as JI.
Oh man, I find this really, really stupid. While I was still in Singapore, I heard tons of the public say "JI escaped from jail", "has JI been caught yet?" and stuff. It's like they can't be bothered to even read (or hear) that the guy's name is Mas Selamat and he's part of the terrorist organization JI. You'd think the public have better brains -.-.
5) Millions were killed in the Si Chuan earthquake.
Figures killed are 50000, expected to reach 100000 very soon. I don't know how "millions" ended up as the death toll. I searched around and found that several blogs (all Singaporeans) mentioned that millions were killed in the earthquake -.-. Please tell me where you actually found that out from. Zzz. There's no sources (apart from these blogs) that so many were killed. Millions lost their homes, but only tens of thousands died. Eh... okay, this one didn't piss me off as much as the things mentioned above. But still, get your facts straight!
Hah... there you go, a few quirks that annoy me. Zzz.
Seems fitting after having a bad day yesterday.
And oh! While it was extremely beautiful looking up at the Petronas Twin Towers, it did kinda suck having the rain constantly splashing your eyes -.-
