Did you know?

            Did you know, that karaoke was invented in the Philippines?  This can tell you a lot about a culture.  For one, Filipinos must love to drink.  Any society that invents karaoke cannot be a sober one.  Karaoke needs alcohol to be fun; actually it needs a whole lot of it!   Before your friends convince you to take the stage at a karaoke bar one must be very sauced up.  After the sauce, you can take the stage and make a complete idiot of yourself with all the confidence in the world.  Additionally, the fact that karaoke was invented in the Philippines tells me that they are a people with a great senses of humor.  I have a new found love for Filipinos, because of their gift of karaoke to society!

            Did you know, the Philippines is the “text capital of the world.”  Filipinos send “About 350 to 400 million SMS (Short Message Service) or text messages are sent daily by 35 million cell phone subscribers in the country, which is more than the total daily text messages sent in the U.S and Europe together” (lifestyle.iloveindia.com).  I guess Filipinos don’t really like face to face communication.  I can dig that, face to face is sometimes overrated.  However, I wonder why texting is so huge over there.  Any answers?  Also this might be a stupid question, but why is it spelled Filipino and not Philipino?  Anyways, this blog sucks, hope everybody is doing well!!
