May 2016 Elections: Miriam Defensor-Santiago


Miriam Defensor-Santiago
I’m not eligible to vote this coming election day, since I didn’t register. It’s just as well, because it allows me the capacity to see the events leading up to the May 2016 elections with a more objective eye; I don’t have anything at stake, and I don’t really care about who wins, so long as they don’t terribly screw up our country.
But seeing as to how we’re three days from the elections, I’d like to throw an impassioned view of things into the overfilled hat of anger, hate, and disillusion that’s pretty palpable throughout social media. There are five presidential candidates, five vice presidential candidates, and two nuisance candidates (Trillanes, I’m looking at you), so I’m going to be filling up the next five days with my opinion of who’s running, and why.

The Fat Man VS. Sky Broadband: Sky Broadband Sucks


sky broadband sucks
I was supposed to post about Digong Duterte today, but I’ve been plagued by terrible customer service from Sky Broadband for several weeks now that I think it’s worth demonizing them a bit in my little soapbox here at the corner of the internet.
So. I am currently subscribed to Sky Broadband, which is by all accounts a fairly decent internet provider. For several months, since I first subscribed (I think that was last December 2015), I’ve had a few hiccups here and there, but it was never something that a quick text to their 23662 hotline couldn’t fix. And I appreciated that very much.
