Women.

It's not about me and women.

Earlier tonight, I was at Starbucks catching up on this month's issue of Esquire (note 1: the one with Christina Hendricks on the cover) (note 2: Starbucks AND Esquire... but I swear I'm not a yuppie). It was an interesting issue as just about the whole thing was focused on women. The standout feature they had in this issue was a survey they conducted on American women. They polled 10,000 women on all types of issues, ranging from politics to religion to sex.

The women were asked if they believed in God — 61% responded 'Yes' while 39% for 'No'. Interestingly, the follow-up asked whether they prayed — 45% said 'Yes' with the remaining 'No'.

There was also a series of questions related to cheating in their relationships. Asked whether they ever had an affair — a quarter of them responded 'Yes'. Yet, when asked whether they would still cheat if they wouldn't be caught — only 16% responded 'Yes' while 84% were for 'No'. The third in this series asked whether they've been cheated on and a staggering 49% said 'Yes'. That's an interesting piece of fact as that number is so close to the divorce rate in America, which sits at 50% (a number that I'm always in awe of, but not the good kind of awe, more of the shaking his head kind of awe).

Other interesting facts: the type of gift most women like to receive is a trip/vacation (at 81%). The second highest was jewelry at 11%. Asked what's the first thing they look at when they see a man: 49% said 'His eyes', followed by 'His body' (17%), thirdly, his clothes at 15%.

All that said, the survey was conducted on the internet and thus, doesn't reflect a scientific sampling of the population. Still, I think the findings are interesting. There's a ton of other facts in the article. Check it out if you're interested, it's on newstands now. Til next time, later geeks!

It was quite a week last week. It started off on a more heavy note last Sunday, but as the week wore on, things became better and more clear. So let's do a little recap. This is going to be kind of long, so if you find this kind of stuff boring I've inserted pictures of funny cats for your entertainment. So... 1.5 Weeks Ago About 1.5 weeks ago, my friend Jon from Living Room gave me the contact info for his uncle. His uncle is an engineer and apparently was looking for new grads and new hands to hire. That week, I gave him a few calls but he wasn't there when I called him and when he returned my calls, I wasn't here either. We were playing phone tag that week *insert schoolgirl giggle*. Sunday Morning So last Sunday morning, his uncle gave me a call at 9 am (The morning! My weakness! HISS!) and we talked about stuff. I was telling him a bit about school as well as elaborating my work/coop experience as he didn't have my resume yet. So he goes on to tell

George Clooney is UP IN THE AIR!!!

So this is the last in the three movies that I was looking forward to at the end of 2009 (the other two being Bad Lieutenant and Avatar). It's hard to say which movies I enjoyed more because they're all so different, but I can confidently say that I enjoyed all three. Also of the three, this movie is the most realistic when it's all said and done. Up In The Air tells a story about Ryan Bingham, who flies all over America firing people. Laying people off is such a tough thing to do that companies that need to do so hire people like Ryan. It becomes reflective as Ryan sees his own life of isolation at odds compared to the lives of those around him. It's apt that he has such a hollow and thankless job which parallels his own life. Because he's on the road for 250+ days of the year, his own life is quite hollow; with no stable relationships, weakened family ties and no friendships in sight. In fact the first time we see his apartment, I was kind of shocked. Up

Let the good times roll!

Welcome to the revamped Billionty-Oneth Geek website! First of all, update your bookmarks and re-subscribe to the feed if you have to. I bought a domain name for my blog, and it's easy access (sort of) through www.billiontyonethgeek.com (I'm sorry that it's such a long address, but hey, here's a hug *hug*). Second of all, you might have noticed the new layout. It's a complete Lam original! I designed it from the top down. It actually took a lot quicker than I had initially thought it would. Because the coding didn't show up properly on Dreamweaver through the GUI, I actually had to code the whole damn thing. Because my knowledge of HTML and CSS were so basic, it took a lot of trial and error. What's frustrating was that there would be times where I'd make a change in the code, yet nothing ended up changing when I uploaded the code. The weird part was that I'd block off the changes, then undo it, and somehow magically the changes appeared.
