People I Hate In Life

There are alot of good people in this world, people who will treat you like you treat them, forgive you when you make mistakes, be there for you when you need them. Some people on the other hand, will expect alot from you and do nothing, treat you badly even when you treat them well, and make your mistakes big deals. Here are a few people I really hate.

Ungratefuls, who will forget everything you have done for them on a single mistake. They will usually have never done anything for you, and if they did they would make a big deal out of it and remind you of it whenever they saw you.

Hypocrites, people who will make it look like you are the best person ever when you are around, and will agree with every word you say just to get some benefit out of you. Then when they meet someone else who has more benefits, they will completely forget you and treat you like vermin.

Superheroes, people who think they are the savior of all humanity, and if it were not for them we we would still be hitting two stones together to make fire. They enjoy boasting alot and despise their competition. If they think of something, it must be right. Superheroes never make mistakes.

Taxis, and if you have been following along with my blog for some time, you'll know what I'm talking about. Sure, there are alot of good taxi drivers doing their job for God and the country. But there are some taxis that are the scum of earth. I've wrote about them before.

My Photo Journal

I grew up as a kid loving to take photographs; my dad would lend me his digital camera when we would go on trips and I would go crazy taking photographs of everything that could see. Over time I have collected several photographs from some of my journeys around the world. Here are six of my best photographs I have chosen to share with you.

Voice Recognition Software

This blog post was typed entirely using voice recognition software. People can say 120 words a minute but only type around 40 words a minute which makes for a big difference when using voice recognition software compared to using the keyboard.

I've only tried software built into Windows to recognize my voice but I only found it to be more time-consuming and full of mistakes, whereas if I used the keyboard I would've been faster.

The found a software for voice-recognition called Naturally speaking and I've used it for typing many Word documents and solving many school worksheets. The program itself adapts to your voice every time you use it to type your documents.

In comparison to the built-in voice recognition in Windows, this program allows for much more accurate recognition of voice producing fewer mistakes, and in the end you type much faster and get more things done in the same time.

I would recommend this software to anyone who finds typing large documents on the keyboard to be difficult or time-consuming. Even if you're like me and didn't find anything particularly wrong with typing on the keyboard, you would appreciate the speed of typing documents with voice recognition software.

Names Around The House

Here around the house we usually have names for each other. Coming from a British background we tend to have strange english nicknames between us in our family, that come from their actions to others. Obviously no one gives a nickname to himself but other siblings give them nicknames.

For example, my brother is called the wind up merchant. The name means some one who is so good at annoying people he does it for a living. My brother usually makes stupid comments on just about anything and accompanies it with a cheesy grin on his face. This is usually why he has bruises on his arms.

My sister is called the miserable girl. She has just about everything yet she is so grumpy she goes around the house with the largest scowl on her face. My father usually tells her to smile but we are afraid her face might crack because she has never smiled in her life. Her scowl is usually scary because she will eat, drink and sleep with it on her face.

And I am nicknamed Kevin the teenager. If you ever watched british comedy, you will know kevin as the angry, grumpy teenager who lost the power of rational thinking, has a hunched back, and has no control of his arms. He usually yells out between grunts phrases like "I hate you", "This is so unfair", and "For gods sake". Check out the video below to see the brilliant Kevin the teenager comedy.
