Linking Park

Finally a place to stick your chewing gum. Will Singapore now allow chewing gum?

Fear not, New Orleans even if Bush won’t help you, India is on the case.

A Playboy Playmate is launching a line of kids clothing for larger kids. Not obese kids, mind you but those afflicted with septo-optic dysplasia which results in blindness and, apparently, makes kids grow larger than normal. Don’t ogle at the mom with noble intentions :)

How would Bush react if Katrina was a terrorist hurricane?

A right-out-there solution to prevent future floods in New Orleans by bringing it up and above sea level. Feasible?

Make microwavable popcorn without a microwave.

Kanye West’s outburst on NBC becomes a tshirt logo now.

Kodak developed the digital camera way back in 1975 and then held back the technology for decades to reap profits from its film market.

Leave the penguins alone please. Let them march without having to declare whether they are liberal or conservative.

    Patrix, that was the same link that was linked to, on Boing Boing about a week ago, I think. It seemed to have gone un-noticed by a lot of ppl. Inflammatory and derogatory to an extent, particularly the refernce to “Gunga Din”. Also, check out his “Mood” and the “Now Playing” on top of the post.

    Read somewhere that Singapore allows chewing gums. They turned the corner sometime back…
    Nevertheless, the target practice could be of help

    Hey….long time no c. Hows u doing? Doing fine at my end, lotsa work at the job stuff.
    Bringing up new orleans would be a helluva task plus they have to account for the kind of fill and its effects on the surrounding wetlands.
    btw..for the first time, the west has copied indian music(bombay theme msic)… Man of war.

    Hi Patrix,

    Belated birthday wishes. And the change from Jahnvi to J happened in April.

    Just dropped by to say that your weekly Linking Park is much awaited and very commendable!

    Kaps, Anya, Jammy, Oops! maybe I am out of the loop regarding updated news on chewing gum in Singapore.

    Anti, Yup I did. Linked both sides of the debate on DesiPundit too.

    Queer, Hey long time…nice to see you around. I didn’t know about that Man of War music thing…will check it out.

    Parna, Minal, J, thanks for your wishes. Appreciate it.
