Why do people drink? Nice guess follows.

Surprisingly honest Nigerian scammer

Got this link from @Techcrunch on Twitter.
The text in the image is not readable, so here's the transcript. EPIC funny!

Mr. Robert Dutu says:
How are you?
Am Robert Dutu
I have a very important business proposition for your consideration.
Please can we chat on it?

Mike Nash says:
let me guess? You have millions of dollars you want to give me. But I won't get it. Instead, you will rip me off with advanced fee fraud.

Mr. Robert Dutu says:
you are right

Mike Nash says:
Well, appreciate the honesty

Mr. Robert Dutu says:
you are welcome
pleasure chatting with you
(icon of shaking hands)

Mike Nash says:
Good luck in finding an idiot

Mr. Robert Dutu says:
thanks man

Whether or not this conversation was conjured, I still find it very funny!

RIP Francis M

I feel sad that Francis M passed away, after a long battle with cancer. The Philippines lost a very talented artist and a fiercely passionate and nationalistic man.

Go over to his multiply sites francismagalona.multiply.com and happybattle.multiply.com and see how he is a person going through cancer and living life. My friend Paul also wrote a blog article about him, here.

Here is one of Francis M's most popular songs "Mga Kababayan."

Just today, a group of Filipino rappers performed a tribute for Francis. Very moving.
