CYBERCRIME LAW: MY TWO CENTS WORTH

8:59 PM 0 Comments A+ a-

General Santos City-News about SC (Supreme Court) upholding the constitutionality of a key provision in the controversy that is RA 10175 or popularly known as the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 rippled across different media from print to broadcast to social media and was gaining different reactions from the public.

Just another Juana Dela Cruz, the blogger in me screams that no matter how we debate about the Act's constitutionality at present, the fact remains that IT has now been declared enforceable! Least you can do now is be aware of its provisions and become more responsible about what you write and post online. As Raffy Tima stated, "Think before you click."

Am not saying that I'm all for RA 10175. I would love to enjoy freedom of speech to its fullness and still be able to honestly  say: "the coffee in this coffeeshop is not masarap" and not appear libelous! Gosh! I think that's absurd! Could you not take things constructively?...but then again, there's always a better way of expressing your opinion, how negative it may be. Me thinks.

I think there are still loopholes to some of the provisions and am not sure how well this will be implemented but  I would like to believe that the netizens are now more responsible these days.It pays to be a little more conscious & cautious though. After all, ignorance of the law excuses no one!

Flappy Bird: Gone Flipping!

Have you gone flip with flappy bird?

Flappy bird is the newest game on smartphone which got people flipping. It stars an odd looking bird which seem to have the heaviest beak of all, a bulging eye and and a small wing he uses to flip his way through tubes. All you need to do is tap your android screen to navigate the darn bird all the way through the tubes without touching them.
It really sounds simple , right? Well that's a Nope with a capital "N" and a bonus Frown with a capital "F"! Flappy bird is going to try your patience and skills in balancing and if you're not so lucky, its gonna send your blood pressure off the roof as it did to my bossing Orman who normally has a long line of patience with his flock of angry Aves!
It even flipped Vice Ganda, Anne Curtis and Pokey! So why would anyone want to play this game? Okay! Because you just have too! Otherwise , Mr. Curiosity will haunt you! So I went sneaking into my secret nook and downloaded the app. 

Tap! Tap! Toink! Failed! Like seriously??? How can this game be sooo difficult? Hey bird! Makisama ka naman! But this is sooo Mario Brother-ish! How can I not score a mean "ONE"?
Okay, let's keep flapping! Pasasaan bat may mahihita rin ako sa iyo! Dahil pag hindi, UN-INSTALL lang ang katapat mo! 
As of this writing puma-flap pa lang ako till the 36th tube. Now tapping my thumb! Flippin' Freakin' Game this is!

Realization suddenly struck me. 
Oooops! Am I surrounded with red stuff 
or I am surrounded with red stuff? 
Teehee! Iam! Iam!
Maria Mercedes lang ang peg neto....from my bag to my wallet to my call cards! Addict lang?! I dunno why RED always turns me on. It doesn't fail to seduce me! 
Red is the color of Blood, of Rubies and of Strawberries..things I am not very much fond of.
Red is commonly associated with Danger. Anger. Fire.
But that's far from being me.
Red is also Love.
Red is Luck and Happiness.
Red is Christmas!
Red is me!
But why on earth am I flooding this page with RED?
No idea! Hahahah!
I just feel like doing so!
