Time Magazine of 6 November

I was just reading the latest Time Magazine issue of 6 November 2006.

Now on its cover is our beloved leader for many many years Tun Dr M.

So naturally... as a proud Malaysian, if you ever see a Malaysian on the cover of TIME Magazine... you don't ask questions.. you BUY IT.

Now there is one thing I really love about TIME Magazine.

Within the first few pages there is always a column that states numbers... for example

1.65 Billion is the amount that Google paid for Youtube in shares.or

1.3 Billion is the population of China alone.

or

38 is the number of people who read Boss Stewie's blog every day.

or even

2 is the number of testicles the average man has.

This month's issue had numbers I really liked.

First it said

1,508 Average number of condoms sold per day by South Korea's Family Mart convenience stores.

and then it went on to say1,930 Average daily number of condoms they sold in the week following North Korea's Oct. 9 nuclear test, prompting speculation that stress from the test led to a rise in sexual activity among South Koreans.

So it IS TRUE... people have sex more often when they are more stressed.

In times of recession, people will spend less money on most things but MORE MONEY ON CONDOMS.

Which brings us to the next question?

Why do condom brands like Durex bother to do any advertising at all?
(Ok we don't see much Durex advertising in Malaysia but I saw plenty while in the UK).

They should focus their efforts instead on creating more stress for people all around the world!

WOOHOO!!!

PS: I have set up a little Meebo box on the right so that I could get to know some of my readers so that some of you could tell me what a fat bastard I am.

It's going to be up for a limited time only and please keep in mind that I might not be able to reply everyone instantly since most of the time that I'm online... I'm at work. :P

UPDATE: Ok... I know many of you have been sending me messages through Meebo but I haven't been able to reply on time either because I'm working or I'm away from the computer and by the time I get back... you guys are gone.

My apologies for that.

SHIT u are half correct with regards to the condom.Know why the Koreans are snapping up condoms?not only are the condoms fireproof it's radioactiveproof as well.you are GOOD,DAMN GOOD!

there is a blanket censorship on condom as our wawasan 2020 is 80 million in population!...........and of course the hypocrisy that to dabble in it is like promoting sex.While our younster are falling by the roadside due to HIV/AIDS.

Boss Stewie said...

maniacz: yes... the AVERAGE.. so for every man that has 1.5 testicles... there is another man with 2.5 testicles...

cely: eh?

daredevil: radioactive proof condoms.. LOL

I always thought TIME was a very lousy magazine what with biased reports and all.

Now it's even trying to use statistics to bluff the minds of innocent corruptible old fat minds like yours.

Why? Because I'M SO DAMN STRESSED BUT I'M NOT GETTING ANY!!!!

aaaaaarrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhhh

*men-jealous the koreans*

Boss Stewie said...

Sorry Daredevil... I hate to delete reader comments but I had to remove your comments that I felt could be offensive to some.

Don't take this the wrong way.

Boss Stewie said...

ricadoe: no ler.. nothing to do with Dr M.. he was featured in an article later in the magazine

william: noononono.. if a malaysian is on the cover.. MUST buy..

earl: oh yes.. that must be why the south koreans were stocking up in condoms.. to build their a bomb made of condoms

suicidal: ahahahha!! aww come on.. for all u know they're not getting any as well.. maybe they're just stocking up on condoms like what earl said...

DareDevil8 said...

DareDevil8 said...

meekiee said...

earl-ku said...

no, its actually a propellant, they spent too much on the developement, now they got a nuclear bomb but no propellant...

so they are making a giant huge catapult like which looks like a huge lastic ... which is capable to launch the bomb all the way to the US ...

DareDevil8 said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to u

MEEKIEE

William Leong said...

earl: i was just about to say that.

vulcanized rubber in condoms can stretch 800 times their own length before breaking. so the nuke can even travel twice around the world before landing if the trajectory is right. muahahahaha...

it's not that durex aren't "bothered" to advertise in Malaysia - they can't. rules govern that condom can't be advertised ler..

Gwen said...

LOL ... the Censorship board would rather have unwanted babies in gym bags than advertise safe sex. Good fucking game. I don't see why it should be such a taboo, since most everyone already does it. It's kind of like having periods. So Kotex can't advertise maxipads or something now is it?
