How Much Did They Spend On Those Election Posters?

General Erection

Somewhere around Malaysia, lucky fuckers are making a killing with their poster & advertizing business. I'm sure all those "Keep Reinventing", "Undilah (insert political party here)" posters, billboards, & banners they're electing for the erection don't come cheap.

Damn! I mean erecting for the election.

By mid-March, they've probably would have enough cash to buy themselves a nice new Mercedes and/or a "nice" new mistress.

I've always believed the amount of propaganda they put up is inversely proportional to the effectiveness of the politician. In America, the groundhog shows up every year to predict the weather (or so they say). But here, some of these politicians will only make an appearance every five years or so in their constituency to "listen" to the grouses of the local plebeians. And thats usually because an election is coming up. Then, once they've won/lost in Kg. Podunk, Malaysia... its back to KL to mingle with the power brokers and elite.

Gambling. God's Way To Keep The Chinese From Dominating The World

Lim Goh Tong and his Genting gambling empire is proof that you can build a casino anywhere, even atop a mountain in the middle of nowhere, and people (usually Chinese) will flock to it to waste their money.

"But Mr.Lim is not here sir.
He's gone to the Big Happy Casino In The Sky"

Any aliens monitoring us in their shiny flying-saucers would think we're nuts.

Someone I knew just struck it rich in the 4D. After many years of religiously buying lottery numbers, he won just slightly enough to cover the "investments" he made with Toto & Magnum in the past 5 years. He's the lucky one. I know many other people who've been playing longer than him, but have yet to hit the jackpot.

There are many Muslims who play the 4D here in Malaysia too. Usually, they're the ones wearing full-face motorbike helmets. Some just don't bother and walk in.
