For men who
think they can stand up to face any woman, meeting Yao Defen might have them giving this idea a second thought.
Yao Defen was born on July 15th, 1972 in China.
She is 7'8" tall and weighs 440 pounds. Her massive size is due to a tumor
which was on her pituitary glad but was removed to halt her growing.
started very early. At six years of age, she was already eating three times the
normal amount of foodcomparedto otherchildren in her village. By elven year old, she was already over six
feet tall. By fifteen, she was six feet and nine inches in height.
At fifteen, she saw a doctor to see if he could
figure out what was causing her abnormal growth. She saw several doctors before
they were finally able to diagnose the cause, however, her family was unable to
do anything about it because the surgery would cost 4000 yuan ($640 USD), which
they did not have.
To be honest, when I first
joined twitter I hated it. I did not know who to talk to and everyone seemed to
be too serious. I was never among the ‘cool’ kids because I had few followers.
My lack of self esteem due to a low follower count prompted me to take some
action and come up with some ‘Get Re-tweets or die trying’ strategies.
I did it all…. Contributed to
some meaningless trending topic, re-tweeted porn on Titty Tuesday, abused
people, stole jokes and pretended that I had a problem with my handset so that
Safaricom Care would mention me with the infamous ‘Please re-boot your device’
tweet. All these strategies made my follower count rise significantly.
I never seemed to have enough
though. Since I was a lonely soul (a life member of Team Forever Alone) I
decided to invest the time I would have used looking for a partner to tweet. I
had the urge to become relevant on twitter even though deep inside I knew that
my real life sucked.
Twitter became my fantasy
world. I could become anybody I projected to be. I could complain about my car
(which I took on a loan that I am still servicing), twitpic my holiday(which
for), criticise the government(even If I was not a registered voter) and
belittlestudentseven if I owned no business of my own.
The approval I got from twitter
was an ego boost. Every day, some kiss ass specialist made me feel like I was
doing something relevant in the world even if I was just a guy in my boxers who
was stealing his neighbor’s wi-fi.
My twitter reputation elevated
my status such that newbie girls thought of me as a cool guy. Since I had a
large follower count I could easily flirt with them. In reality, they were out
of my league but twitter (with the help of photoshop and instagram) made things
much easier for me.
If I was feeling lonely and had
a serious case of insomnia, I would just log in… Tweet about it and voila, my
various crushes would send me some sympathy tweets. I felt like the king(even
though I rarely gotphonecallsand nobody texted me in real
The discovery of memes was a life-changing experience for me. I
could finally usepicturesto deliver funny punch-lines
without being actually funny. I developed a meme suited for every ‘dumb’
question from my followers. The fact that they got re-tweeted much gave me a
sense of belonging in the world (even though I was still in my boxers stealing
If twitter was to be on my C.V I would describe myself as ‘Avi
zooming specialist, Critic of anything done by anyone with a cause, latest
series watcher, list reading and writing blogger, grammarnazi, Re-tweet
specialist,PhoneOperating System referral,
beauty analyst and fantasy sports team manager( KOT can all manage football
better than wenger).
As we speak, I am still
tweeting and worrying about my rising un-follower count. I am still complaining
about the price of concerts I never planned to attend. I am laughing at people
who make spelling errors. I am referring to people as ‘OOMF’ because deep
inside I am a sissy that’s afraid of confrontation. I am still being less than
productive in the work place. I am using my telephone in traffic because I have
to report ‘Twitter big stick’.
A lot of people enjoywatchingthe
game of boxing. But the same definitely cannot be said of the people whoparticipatein
the game. Thepictureabove presents one of the reasons why boxers are very unlikely to
enjoy the game like those watching it.
Whether you believe it or not,
the twopicturesabove are those of one and the same person. And he is no other
than Haitian-American Andre Berto, former 147-pound welterweight champion. The
picture on the left above shows what Berto looked like after taking a merciless
12-round beating at the gloves of fellow American (but of Mexican decent)
Robert Guerrero, popularly known as The Ghost, on Saturday night.
Guerrero won on a unanimous
decision, and is now 31-1-1 with 18 knockouts. Berto is now 28-2, and gave

a guy who fought most of the fight with his right eye swollen shut. “I did tell
Andre I was going to beat him down, so I had to be a man of my word,” Guerrero
said afterward, and thatphotoabove is evidence of that. “But he did defend himself like a true
Meanwhile, Berto mcomplained
about the officiating: “He was coming in, grabbing and holding me. Every time I
tried to get off, the referee kept warning me for shots,” he said, but was
gracious in defeat: “At the end of the day, Robert fought a good fight and he
got the win.” The judges saw it the same way, unanimously scoring it 116-110 in
favor of Guerrero.
guilty of this practice as it is not uncommon to hear phrases like “I wan go do
all night” or “I wan do TDB (Till Day Break)” and so on during examination
periods. Ironically, health specialists posit that loss of sleep during these
night sessions could be counter-productive.
In a report published inScienceDailyon November 21, a medical
director at Harris Health Sleep Disorders Centre, Houston, Texas, Dr. Philip
Alapat, says anystudentwho does all night reading may be undoing himself.
Instead, he recommends that
students shouldstudythroughout the semester, set up study sessions in theevening–
the optimal time of alertness and concentration – and get at least eight hours
of sleep the night before exams.
He adds that memory recall and
ability to maintain concentration are better improved when an individual is
“By preparing early and being
able to better recall what you have studied, your ability to perform well in
exams is increased,” he says.
According to the study, Alapat,
who is also an assistant professor at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, and
out about 1,200 sleepstudiesa
year to evaluate patients for a variety of sleep disorders, including apnea,
insomnia, restless legs syndrome, narcolepsy and chronic fatigue syndrome.
He posits that college-aged
students should ideally get eight to nine hours of sleep a night but the truth
he says, is that most students generally get much less.
He says, “Any prolonged sleep
deprivation will affect your mood, energy level and ability to focus,
concentrate and learn – which directly affects your academic performance. Throw
in the occasional all-nighter, consumption of caffeinated beverages like
coffee, tea or energy drinks, and students are at risk for developing insomnia,
as well as increased risks for alcohol abuse and motor vehicle accidents.
“A lot of college students
graduate from high school and leave the protective family environment where
they have curfews or set bed times. In college, they don’t have these
guidelines for sleep and recognise that they can stay up late. This likely
contributes to the sleep deprivation seen commonly in college students.”
Among Alapat’s recommendations
are: get eight to nine hours of sleep nightly – especially before final exams;
try to study during periods of optimal brain function – usually around 6-8 pm;
early afternoons, which is usually the time of least alertness and do not
overuse caffeinated drinks – caffeine remains in one’s system for six to eight
He adds that people should
recognise that chronic sleep deprivation may contribute to development of
long-term diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.
“If suffering from bouts of
chronic sleep deprivation or nightly insomnia lasts for more than a few weeks,
try consulting a sleep specialist,” he says.
