Hi guys.. hope your exams have been going well..

I know that Peter has already mentioned Pushpullbar before in the cadlab blog, but I really cant tell you how cool it is!!!

For those of you who are, or at least did photography, there is a black and white architectural photography started by our very own Fayj!

There are all sorts of discussions that, I think at least, by now you should be wanting to take part in.

So there we go.. my part for the forum.. so get cracking!!!!!

Design Exam

Tuesday, June 06, 2006
Reading the blog the other day, I was shocked to discover the design exam is closed book... Not that we have any books or anything, but I feel comfort in knowing I have a few things written on paper for exam where we don't really know whats potting... So I decided to take out my Arch215 (design) course outline and this is what I discovered, and I quote:

There will be a written theoretical test during the June Exams. A final year written theoretical exam will also take place. Both written exams are OPEN BOOK exams."

So I ask, are they allowed to change their minds like that? Thanks Feige for your info, but if the only source is Kirsten is it reliable as tutors and our lecturer often seem to be on different planets... Also, not everyone seems to know about this, not everyone has internet access...

Since Im sure most of you won't scroll down to look at my design exam post, and will be calling me until I am forced to change my ring tone, bc its officially annoying me... :)

THE DESIGN EXAM IS NOT OPEN BOOK! (Before you complain, we have no book to open-dunno what you guys are planning on learning, but this exam for me is purely going to be the art of bull shitting- hopefully well- not that teh rest aren't. )

Tourism in SA

These questions about South Africa were posted on a South African
Tourism Website and were answered by the website owner.

Q: Does it ever get windy in South Africa? I have never seen it rain on TV, so how do the plants grow? (UK)
A: We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around watching them die.

Q: Will I be able to see elephants in the street? (USA)
A: Depends how much you've been drinking.

Q: I want to walk from Durban to Cape Town - can I follow the railroad tracks? (Sweden)
A: Sure, it's only two thousand kilometers, take lots of water...

Q: Is it safe to run around in the bushes in South Africa? (Sweden)
A: So it's true what they say about Swedes...?

Q: Are there any ATMs (cash machines) in South Africa? Can you send me a list of them in JHB, Cape Town, Knysna and Jeffrey's Bay? (UK)
A: ...and what did your last slave die of?

Q: Can you give me some information about Koala Bear racing in South Africa? (USA)
A: Aus-tra-lia is that big island in the middle of the pacific. A-fri-ca is the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe which does not... oh forget it. Sure, the Koala Bear racing is every Tuesday night in Hillbrow. Come naked.

Q: Which direction is north in South Africa? (USA)
A: Face south and then turn 90 degrees. Contact us when you get here and we'll send the rest of the directions.

Q: Can I bring cutlery into South Africa? (UK)
A: Why? Just use your fingers like we do.

Q: Can you send me the Vienna Boys' Choir schedule? (USA)
A: Aus-tri-a is that quaint little country bordering Ger-man-y, which is... oh forget it. Sure, the Vienna Boys Choir plays every uesday
night in Hillbrow, straight after the Koala Bear races. Come naked.

Q: Do you have perfume in South Africa? (France)
A: No, WE don't stink.

Q: I have developed a new product that is the fountain of youth. Can you tell me where I can sell it in South Africa? (USA)
A: Anywhere significant numbers of Americans gather.

Q: Can you tell me the regions in South Africa where the female population is smaller than the male population? (Italy)
A: Yes, gay nightclubs.

Q: Do you celebrate Christmas in South Africa? (France)
A: Only at Christmas.

Q: Are there killer bees in South Africa? (Germany)
A: Not yet, but for you, we'll import them.

Q: Are there supermarkets in Cape Town and is milk available all year round? (Germany)
A: No, we are a peaceful civilisation of vegan hunter-gatherers. Milk is illegal.

Q: Please send a list of all doctors in South Africa who can dispense rattlesnake serum. (USA)
A: Rattlesnakes live in A-me-ri-ca, which is where YOU come from. All South African snakes are perfectly harmless, can be safely handled and make good pets.

Q: I was in South Africa in 1969, and I want to contact the girl I dated while I was staying in Hillbrow. Can you help? (USA)
A: Yes, and you will still have to pay her by the hour.

Q: Will I be able to speek English most places I go? (USA)
A: Yes, but you'll have to learn it first.

Why it's great to be South African:

1. You can eat half dried meat and not be considered disgusting.

2. Nothing is your fault, you can blame it all on apartheid.

3. You get to buy a new car every 3 months and the insurance company even pays for it.

4. You can experience kak service in eleven official languages.

5. Where else can you get oranges with 45% alcohol content at rugby matches?

6. It's the only country in the world where striking workers show how angry they are by dancing and singing.

7. You're considered clumsy if you cannot: use a cell phone (without car kit), change CDs, drink a beer, put on make-up, read the newspaper and smoke, all at the same time while driving a car at 160 kph in a 60 kph zone.

8. Great accent. (!!!)

9. If you live in Johannesburg, you get to brag about living in the most dangerous city in the world.

10. Burglar bars become a feature, and a great selling point for your house.

11. You can decorate your garden walls with barbed wire.

12. The tow-trucks are the first on the scene for most major crimes, without being called. The police you have
to call about three times.

13. Votes have to be recounted until the right party wins.

14. Illegal immigrants leave the country because the crime rate is too high.

15. The police ask you if they must follow up on the burglary you've just reported.

16. When a murderer gets a 6 month sentence and a pirate TV viewer 2 years.

17. The prisoners strike and get to vote in elections!

18. The police stations have panic buttons to call armed response when they are burgled

19. Police cars are fitted with immobilisers and gearlocks!

Ja nee!! Dis lekker hier!!

Time for a Break...

Time for World Cup Soccer. It's gonna be good. It's gonna give me something to do while needing to study. Can't wait. Hope the Netherlands finally win the Cup. They've come close often enough to warrant an overall tournament victory.

Check out some of the Stadiums in Germany on my Blog. (ottenjr.blogspot.com)
Hopefully we'll see similar developments in S.A for 2010.

Anyway more on that from Friday onwards. Time for Construction in the mean time.

Enjoy. All the Best.

Sandeep, on his own mission to dethrone his quote, has collected one for the blog. This was said today in Construction by Mohammed Patel (Who is apparently known as the lion killer). Beware this is an extremely dodge quote of note!

"I was sucking on this thing and almost choked"
