Relatives of the Ostrich

There are many relatives to the bird this blog is named after in the ratite bird family (a family of large flightless birds). This group consists of:

The Rhea:

The Emu:

The Moa (extinct 1500 CE):

The Elephant Bird (extinct 1500 CE):

(Elephant Bird Egg (left) compared to ostrich egg (right) compared to hand):

The Kiwi:

All the preceding were related to the beloved Struthio Camelus (Ostrich).

This has been your daily dose of ostrich education.

Are You Tired Yet?


This picture was at the end of a list of 15 questions Google might ask a job applicant during an interview. The title of this post was the caption on the picture. I think it does the picture justice.

Here is a link to the questions, they are kind of cool. -feel-stupid-2009-11

Anti-Stab knife

Today I was reading an old issue of the Bangkok Post Guru magazine. It talked of an anti-stab knife developed in the UK, which would work fine for chopping carrots and such, but has a rounded point and is designed to snag on clothing, making it rather difficult to stab someone. My question is, wouldn’t someone know if they're gonna stab someone that this knife isn't the best for the job? It probably says in big bold letters "Anti-stab" right on the packaging. No would be stabber would be stupid enough to buy it.

On another, different note, I went to see Harry Potter 6 in BKK today. It was OK, and there was a tribute to the king before the previews played.

In Need of Human Company

Now I like a new operating system as much as the next person. And I'm rather excited for the Google Chrome OS, but perhaps Mr. Buchanan here is a bit too excited, this is what he wrote on

"Google. Chrome. OS. Just reading that makes my pants tingle"

Maybe he should visit a therapist.

Who Needs a Lake?

I wonder what this man was hoping to find, and what he was going to do with his catch. What exactly is he doing that's illegal?

Why Windows 7 Came Out So Fast

"I wasn't sure exactly why everyone was so angry at Windows Vista until I actually tried to use it for an actual, real-world reason. This god dang thing sucks, y'all. It's like somebody just took a good-lookin' car that ran good and there was nothing wrong with it, and they came in and screwed a bunch of fancy-looking crap to it and redid the wiring so none of the gauges or lights work. They put some fancy, spinny rims on it but crap gets stuck in them and the tires go flat all the time. And then it assumes you're an idiot so it constantly ask you things like "are you sure you want to change the radio station?" Oh look, the cupholder just broke off because the radio is too shiny."

Week 1

So its been about a week. I'm safely in Kanchanaburi. I've been to the Bridge over the River Kwae, and the memorial next to it. It was quite interesting.I also went to a statue of the King Narai the Great, the king of Thailand 400 years ago. The king was mounted on an elephant, and around the area, there were many statues of chickens in various sizes. There was also a pagoda from the time period. I am having a great time here and I'm very happy.

On a completely separate note, I was video-chatting with A-Fox on oovoo, and this banner ad appeared on the bottom of the screen:


Hoping all is well,

F-Cat's Thai Escapades

This is the first in a series that will be continually updated through March 2010. I have decided to spend a year in Thailand, and I will be frequently reporting back about my time there. I am currently on a layover at Tokyo/Narita airport waiting for my connection to Bangkok. The Japanese ministry of health boarded all planes from the US to make sure noone had Swine Flu.

Updates to come.
