Smoking Kills in More Ways

Of course you already know that smoking is like standing on a busy highway waiting for a truck to run you down. But what you don’t know is that it actually does something else to your body, your brain in particular, while you are waiting for your bus trip to the after life.

Current research on the effects of smoking in the brain reveals that, among other harmful things, smoking changes the chemistry of the part of the brain responsible for processing pleasure and pain. According to the German study, the amount of the amino acid N-acetylaspartate (NAA) is reduced in the brain of a smoker. Although the study doesn’t specify how this chemical imbalance specifically manifests, I assume that it probably reduces the sensation of pain, which is ok, but also of pleasure, which is totally not good. I can bear not feeling the hurt of a punch in the face, but really, does the pleasure of sex have to go with it? Previous studies reveal that this condition was observed in persons with psychiatric and mood disorders like bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and dementia, as well as alcohol dependence.

So how do you get around it? The study offers just one solution: quit smoking.

Note: Baby, the bottom line is that I love you and I don't want you to die on me.

Drop Him, Move On, Get Going, Go Boy!

I know it’s weird that I’m writing about ditching guys when I myself am deeply in love. Although I don’t find myself in this situation now, I know that there are guys out there who do. Here’s something to knock yourself back to your senses.

So you’re dating this person for some time already. Both of you made some amount of emotional investment. But then you can’t explain your relationship. You are together, but not really. And it’s been going on for months but you don’t know exactly where you are going. Man, somebody has got to decide. Leave him or live with it.

I know it’s hard to just leave someone just like that, especially if you’re starting to fall or have fallen already. These ten reasons might just break the camel’s back, help you pack your bags and leave the guy you thought you want:

1. You don’t trust him not because you’re just paranoid but because he gives (or doesn’t) you reasons not to.
2. Your closest friends tell you that he is not good for you.
3. He tells you that he has personal baggage which for some reason he doesn’t want to share with you.
4. He doesn’t introduce you to his friends and/or family. You are his most guarded secret. That, or he is just a two-timing boar.
5. He is not ready for a commitment now and he doesn’t know when (if ever at all) he’ll be ready.
6. He moves back every time you get close. He is distant.
7. You start needing him but he is always unavailable. He doesn’t return your texts or doesn’t call you back even if you know he’s not busy.
8. He is confused. He adores you one minute, and then you’re a nobody to him the next.
9. You receive emails and text messages from him which were meant for some other guy or girl (Surprise! Surprise!) he is dating. (That’s why he doesn’t want to commit?)
10. He tells you that in the few months you lost touch, he’s had 5 relationships, all of them past flings who had in some way hurt him. He hatched a carefully planned plot to exact revenge on all of them. (Shudder!)

Now, is dropping him still hard to do? Put it this way: you are doing yourself a very big favor if you do. Your mantra should be “Move on. Get going. Go boy!”

Flowers for My Baby

These are the flowers that I want to give you every day for the rest of your life. I don’t know when I can actually give these to you, given the circumstances. But it doesn’t matter. My heart doesn’t care. These flowers, the most beautiful red roses, the sweetest smelling, thorn-free roses, I grow them all in my heart. When you are ready, I will harvest all of them for you and offer them to your feet. These flowers from my heart will never wilt. They don’t need sunlight or water or air. They don’t even need soil. All they need to live and grow is your love, and someday, maybe someday, your smile too every day when you wake up in the morning. I love you.

Violated Angel?

I am resurrecting myself from a self-inflicted respite from radioactivity for this late-breaking news.

Early this month I featured the vivacious Angelica in radioactivity, a very hot return indeed. Last night, I saw her on the TV news denying rumors that the photography she did for that liquor calendar was computer enhanced. Hhhmmm. The plot thickens when this morning I received “evidence” of the crime in my email. Judge for yourself which photographs have been “violated.”

Really do you guys mind?

juOnText 01

I am starting a new series on the little gems of inspiration I receive through SMS. I am not exactly the forwarded-message-freak type of guy. In fact, there was a time I used to not read an SMS and just delete it if I know it’s a forwarded message. But then lately, I noticed how smart some of them can get. And they seem to be talking to me all too often now. Or maybe my friends are just becoming telepathic, knowing what kind of talk I need at certain points of my life. Whatever. Not all of the SMS I’ll be featuring here in juOnText is forwarded though. Expect anything touching, or sweet, or corny, or even funny. Expect wisdom as well, hhhmmm, something that I am surprised my friends are actually gifted with.

Sadness is self-inflicted.

You need not bother too much about every crappy, shitty occurrence around you. But then again, you tend to get yourself involved.

Happiness is self-induced just the same. As they say, it’s just a matter of perspective. So while you still have the chance to shape your day’s mood, choose: would you rather be sad or happy?

Life is good. Live it.

If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place. Take risks and enjoy life.

If you run away from your problem, it breaks you. If you face it, you break it. Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.

juOnBox Music 14: Beyonce Knowles’ B’day

Did you see Beyonce do a spanking number in The Ellen Degeneres Show of the following song from her latest CD B’day? I didn’t. But my friend tells me it was hot. You could actually feel her telling you what she wants to tell you: that the man’s a freak thinking he’s irreplaceable. Beyonce performed for a live audience of 10, 000 people at New York’s Central Park where the show was taped. Watch it here.

in the closet, that's my stuff
yes if i bought it please don't touch

and keep talkin' that mess, that's fine
but could you walk and talk at the same time?
and it's my name that's on that Jag
so remove your bags, let me call you a cab

standin' in the front yard
tellin' me how i'm such a fool
talkin' bout, how i'll never ever find a man like you
you got me twisted

you must not know 'bout me, you must not know 'bout me
i could have another you in a minute
matter fact, he'll be here in a minute

you must not know 'bout me, you must not know 'bout me
i can have another you by tomorrow
so don't you ever for a second get to thinking
you're irreplaceable

so go ahead and get gone
and call up that chick and see if she's home
oops, i bet you thought that i didn't know
what did you think i was puttin' you out for?

because you was untrue
rollin' her around in the car that i bought you
baby drop them keys
hurry up, before your taxi leaves

standin' in the front yard
tellin' me how i'm such a fool
talkin' bout i'll never ever find a man like you
you got me twisted

you must not know 'bout me, you must not know 'bout me
i could have another you in a minute
matter fact, he'll be here in a minute

you must not know 'bout me, you must not know 'bout me
i will have another you by tomorrow
so don't you ever for a second get to thinking
you're irreplaceable

so since i'm not your everything
how about i'll be nothing
nothing at all to you

baby i won't shed a tear for you
i won't lose a wink of sleep
cause' the truth of the matter is
replacing you is so easy

You must not know 'bout me
You must not know 'bout me
I can have another you by tomorrow
Don't you ever for a second get to thinking - baby

You must not know 'bout me
You must not know 'bout me

I can have another you in a minute
matter fact he'll be here in a minute
you can pack all your bags we're finished
cause you made your bed now lay in it

I can have another you by tomorrow
Don't you ever for a second get to thinking you're irreplaceable

I will do a link to the files hopefully this weekend.

I ran into this, uhm, interesting-in-your-face take on falling-in-love-but-not-quite-kind-of-setup while blog hopping.


there was never a “we.”

you and me—that's what we were.
just two separate people who by fate, destiny, or whatever bullshit, crossed paths, faced life together, and for a while it was beautiful.
when it was time to step up, we chose to walk away from it all,
unscathed yes, yet empty because of the fact that neither was willing to fight.
so there was never a "we". but someday, when i'm brave enough, i'll let you know...
you were everything to me.

What the fuck are we people doing to each other?

Thanks to for putting into words what I have been keeping in my chest for a long time.

juOnTech: The Sony PlayStation 3

Sony finally lets it go. The much-anticipated PlayStation 3 (PS3) has been released in Japan last 11 November and will be released in the US (and hopefully other parts of the world) on 17 November 2006. After killing us tech fans with excitement, and building us up by floating mind-boggling leaks about the PS3’s features, finally they’ve let it all out. Here are some of the key features of this baby:

• High-definition graphics
• A hard disk drive (in 60 and 20 gb) to store photos, music files, and video files, and consequently view them as well
• Connectivity via ethernet, wi-fi (802.11 b/g), and Bluetooth and consequent networking capabilities to surf the Internet, access special content and software upgrades, and multiplayer online gaming messaging
• Media slots for Memory Stick, SD Card, and CompactFlash
• An updated wireless controller

Check out the PS3’s specs from the official PS3 website in Asia.

Now the PS3 is facing stiff competition from Nintendo's Wii (set for release on 11 November 2006 and Microsoft's 1-year old baby XBox 360. If you're torn, you might want to read this article to help you sort this out.
