Insecure without My Hi-Tech Devices

Is that, an A-D-D-I-C-T-I-O-N???  Of course it IS!!!

Insecure without my hi-tech devices, when I left without my PDA, my cell phone, my I-Pad, etc., etc., etc., because they’d become extensions of who I am, and, how can I sever myself away from the vital parts of who I am?

Insecure without my hi-tech devices, I know that that sounds like an addiction, but it is not, I know I can control this panic that’s slowly coming over me, when I don’t have my cell phone in my bags.  Insecure without my hi-tech devices, I’d fly into high panic mode, whenever I felt around in my pocket and couldn’t find my cell.

So, am I addicted?  I don’t think so, but, I need a second opinion here, can someone help me out with that???

Insecure about my hi-tech devices, I don’t know how I will cope, for a week (b/c that, is how long I’m in here for) without my cell phone, my flat screen, I’m basically, CUT off from the outside world here, and I KNOW I will have difficulties, adjusting.

Selfies with Your Tops Off

This, is for ALL you L-O-S-E-R-S AND BITCHES out there, and NO, that still does NOT “constitute” as “name-calling” either…

You ALL know what “selfies” are, so, there’s NO need to explain that!!!  And now, those guys, you know, members of MY opposite sex???  They’re taking photos of themselves with their TOPS off, showing off their pecs or whatever it is that they’re trying to prove, the HELL should I know!

Selfies with your tops off, is that really necessary?  And, hadn’t we seen enough N-U-D-I-T-Y already on this WWW world of ours?  So why the HELL do you losers feel compelled, to take your tops off, is it to make yourselves MORE appealing to us ladies?

Well, there’s something ELSE you may have neglected to notice there, DUMB-ASSES (no, still does NOT constitute as name-calling!!!), we women may be easy on the eyes, but a LOT of us are still HARD as HELL on the hearts, and, we do NOT judge a LOSER, based off of the size of ITS (b/c you ALL had been “downgraded” by me already???) pecs, thighs, chest, or whatever, so, please, DO refrain yourselves, from showing off your bodies, and, that, is O-N-L-Y on the T-O-P, and, don’t get ME started on the BOTTOM now, ‘k???  Yeah, uh-huh, uh-huh (looking down at my watch), I’m afraid, that time is UP for this current “session”, feel free, to VISIT me again, but, DO schedule an appointment with MY secretaries, Ms. B(eelzebub), Ms. S(atan), OR Ms. L(ucifer) outside MY office!

And no, it still does NOT turn us ALL on, seeing you, losers, flashing yourselves, and ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, do you know how D-I-S-G-U-S-T-I-N-G it would be, whenever you turn on your computer and you’re BOMBARDED with someone’s NAKED bodies?  Imagine yourselves in MY shoes now, and, don’t just walk that god DAMN miracle mile either…

When the Child of a Spokesperson of Anti-Drug Was Caught, Using & Abusing Drugs

Whoa!!!  Wait a minute, do you mean, that the mommies and the daddies are spokesmen AGAINST drug use and abuse, while their kid is getting H-I-G-H???  How’s that even possible?  And, one can only conclude, that there’s something V-E-R-Y W-R-O-N-G, with the household education of this child’s family.

I mean, the parents ARE spokespeople AGAINST drug use and abuse, so, how come they couldn’t even STOP their own offspring from getting CAUGHT from getting H-I-G-H???

This, is time, for a PUBLIC apology, after all, the offspring IS legal (an adult), s/he just got caught, red-handed, with her/his head SHOVED, inside of THAT “cookie jar”.  When a spokesperson who preached about the importance of anti-drug, maybe, maybe, the person’s spending WAY too much, contributing to the REST of the world that s/he’d IGNORED her/his own offspring, and so, when something like this happens, the world turns its gaze onto the celeb parents!

When “Fun” Became a Sorry Excuse for Drug Use

And no, I still did NOT just make this one up either, it’s found, on the online newspaper pages, translated…

The police subprecint in Neipu recently discovered four men who used the popular instant messaging program of LINE, along with Facebook, to deal drugs to students, and they’d even held a “party” in a motel too, and, there were fourteen middle school and high school age students who fell victim.

The Neipu subprecinct started chasing the leads, found that four men, Chen, Hsu, Chang, and Lin, took advantage of it being the summer vacation right now, and solicited teens at places like net cafés, shrimp fishing farms, motels, along with other “hot spots” for youths to gather, sold drugs to them, to establish “connections”, then, they’d used the chat programs, to notify the students when there will be a drug party.

The police told, that the four men used the cell phone chat programs as a medium, to notify the teens when there will be a party, without a specific location, and, they’d texted, “Hey, let’s have a party”, as a secret code for the teens to know, that there would be a drug party somewhere, during the party, the four men would prepare ecstasy, along with other illegal substances, to hook the teens.

The police found, that the fourteen students who were caught, were still in school, and couldn’t support themselves economically, some had taken their parents’ money to buy the drugs, some had used their own money saved up from part-timing work, other than a few who had priors, most were first time offenders.  And, after the police questioned them, some of them told the police, “I just wanted to try it, for fun”, and it’d made the parents angry, but some of the parents told the police, “We couldn’t discipline them!”, and, after questioning, everybody IS booked.

And so, this, is how easily they fall, after all, they’re way too young, way too easily impressed, and, they’re at an age where they are needing acceptance the most, and, IF the parents couldn’t control these teens, then, it’ll be up to the law to make sure that the teens are “steered” into the right directions, and sometimes, it still wouldn’t work, because a LOT of those kids are destined for a life of crimes…

Booze Became His Escape

Booze became his escape, as he’d found a soft place for him to land, inside that bottle of Whiskey Scotch.  Booze became his escape, and, ever since, he just couldn’t escape its tight grasps onto him.  He needed it, everywhere he’d gone.

Booze became his escape, but, what’s he escaping from, really?  He doesn’t know!!!  Or rather, he doesn’t want to know, because knowing is too painful for him, had always been too painful for him, as he’d never learned to effectively deal with ALL those emotions that are currently overflowing, and so, he did all he could, all that he knew how to, DROWN it all out, with more liquor!

Booze became his escape, but, NOT for long, because, after awhile, the amount of alcohol he’d needed just never quite seemed enough, he just upped, and upped the dose, until one day, he took a nightcap, fell asleep, and, never woke back up again.

As the coroner’s came to haul his body away, they ruled his death as a suicide, but what they didn’t know, was that he’d died of poisoning, ALCOHOL poisoning!

The Most Avid Addiction: Cell Phone Addiction, Exactly Like Drug Addictions

Written by a M.D., from the Front Page Sections, translated…

Taiwan had become a No. 1 in the world once more, the Yahoo and Countries Research investigated on the way that consumers used the multimedia and found that the Taiwanese people had spent most time on their cells.  After I’d read the reports, I don’t know whether to cry or laugh.

I’d often joke with my friends, as an eye doctor, I admired Jobs the most, he NOT only managed to connect the world, he’d also brought a TON of business to the eye doctors.  There is NO other reasons than how the small screens on a cell phone can cause the younger generations to develop nearsightedness; for the older generations, because of the exposures to the blue lights, their eyes would get sore, causing cataracts, along with other eye disorders too.

Some said, “Cell phone brings people who are far apart together, but pushed away those who are near.”  This is not at all, an understatement, at my office, I’d often seen youths playing on their cells, having difficulties communicating, and when they’re in my office, they either NOT answer the questions I’d asked them, or that they’re NOT answering the right questions, and when they’d filled out the forms, there would be “Martian” language every now and then, I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry here.

I’m an anti-cell phone person, every time, when I’m checking a patient, the patient’s cell sounded off, it would always shock me.  I’d still recalled the very first day I became an intern at the hospital, the hospital gave the doctors a BB call that looked like cell phones, and when I wore it, I was pound, because it was all brand new to me, but, after a day, I hoped I could just throw it out, because it’d distracted me, as I’d gone on the rounds, ate, gone to the restrooms, or even slept, I’d get waken up by the rings, I couldn’t get a moment of peace, and I became unsettled too.

Recently, there are scam artists who used a multitude of ways to scam people using cell phone.  There is also a cell phone addiction now in the medical realm too, cell phones, to the patients, are like drugs, you just can’t get off them.

As to how to gain that balance between the good points and the bad points of the cell phone, it’s a true test for modern civilization that’s for certain.

As for me, I will NEVER get a cell phone this life.  Getting in touch with me using phones, and when I needed to check my e-mails, or look up information, I’d find a peaceful time, and turn on my desktop, after thirty minutes of staring into the screen, I’d surely taken a ten-minute break, at which time, I’d stared into the distance at the clouds, the trees, or the starry skies, to allow the muscles in my eyes to relax completely.

And so, because we are ALL “kidnapped” by our cell phones, we are going to have MORE eye problems as we age, and we still can’t kick this “addiction”, because we can’t live without connecting to the people in the world today, and that, would be a consequences we all have to live with now.

A Mother Kept Her Bank Books Hidden from Her Drug-Addicted Son, and Was Beaten by Him to the Extent She Needed Hospitalization

I wonder W-H-O-S-E fault this is???  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A drug-addicted man, Liu who’d been getting high for years already, two days ago, was displeased at how his mother in her seventies had hidden his bank books from him, he was suspected of beating her up with a club, to the point of subdural hematoma, into a state of comatose, and then, he’d fled the scene, the family members feared that Liu might be physically violent toward his own mother again, and yesterday, they’d filed for an emergency restraining order, and was granted, and the family pressed charges.

The twin sister of Liu (age 51) said, that her younger brother had been addicted to drugs for years on end, and there was NOTHING that the family can do about it, the siblings were originally going to take their mother up north to take care for her, but the youngest brother often used threats that he’ll bring harm to the family members, to keep his mother with him, and had asked each one of his siblings to give his mother at least $20,000N.T. per month for sustenance, and because the mother couldn’t take care of her accounts, and so, the siblings can only wire the amount to the youngest brother’s account, but, the money that was supposed to be used to support their mother had been spent by the youngest brother.

Liu’s older sister stated, that two days ago, her brother had trouble finding the bank books for the money that they’d sent to their mother, and suspected that the seventy-seven year-old mother had hidden it from him, he was suspected of using a wooden bat, and beaten the mother to subdural hematoma, along with broken multiple bones inside her body, the neighbors called it in, and took Liu’s mother to the Tainan City Hospital E.R., and because she was so brutally beaten up, she was in a coma, and is now, under observations in the ICU.

Liu’s older sister got the call two days ago, rushed home to Tainan, saw how badly her mother was beaten, she was outraged; she feared that her younger brother might use physical violence toward their mother again, yesterday, she’d gone with her family to the Tainan District Court and filed for an emergency restraining order, “I just hope that there is still some humanity left in my younger brother, that he doesn’t do anything bad or stupid again.”

Based off of understanding, Liu has multiple priors, last year, he was sentenced to five months in prison for using a fruits knife in the hospital wards, to threaten other patients, he will be serving his time this August, he’d once asked for the $150,000N.T. bail from his friends and families, but, nobody wanted to help him out.

And, the one who’d caused this son to behave so badly was still his own MOTHER, had she not let him get away with the minor things from earlier on, then, I’m sure that he wouldn’t have exacerbated to where he is currently, and, because the mother is fueling to this bad son’s behaviors, she’d become the enabler, and, it’s still the parents fault when the kids turned out like this.
