Where In Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? - October 28, 2009

October 28th, 2009

Bruddah MakiSushi captured his first WIH victory last week when he correctly guessed Yohei Sushi Restaurant. Congrats Maks!

This week, we've got a special treat for ya! Since WWE is featured on the front page of today's Advertiser (print version), we're gonna try something a lil' different to welcome in the new meat, er blood, er readers. ;)

Long time poster and WWE `ohana member hemajang submitted an image for consideration for a future WIH. I thought that there was no better way to mix the "old" (no offense hemmaz) with the new than to have hemajang's photo welcome them on in. Plus, with Halloween coming up in just 3 days, his Pig's Feet dish fit the bill. :P

So hurr we gooo! For the oldies (but goodies ;) ), you know what to do. For the newbies, check out the photo below and try to guess "Where In Hawaii" it is. Post your guess(es) in the comment area below. Good luck chy'all!

What Would You Do for a Million Dollars?

October 26th, 2009
By



So there's a new movie coming out called The Box. Much like the 1993 movie Indecent Proposal, someone is offered $1 million in exchange for doing something questionable. Here's the plot summary for The Box:

Norma and Arthur Lewis, a suburban couple with a young child, receive a simple wooden box as a gift, which bears fatal and irrevocable consequences. A mysterious stranger, delivers the message that the box promises to bestow upon its owner $1 million with the press of a button. But, pressing this button will simultaneously cause the death of another human being somewhere in the world; someone they don't know. With just 24 hours to have the box in their possession, Norma and Arthur find themselves in the cross-hairs of a startling moral dilemma and must face the true nature of their humanity.

So today's Fun Day Monday topic is about this premise. WWYD (What Would You Do)?

Politically and principle-wise, I can easily tell you that I would never stoop to such levels no matter how much money I am given, but until I'm put in that position (like Norma and Arthur Lewis were), I really can't answer for sure. Like in that Batman movie (The Dark Knight was it?), where the two ferries were pitted against each other. Oh, here's a button that blows up the other ferry. Push it first and your ferry will be saved. And neither ferry pushed the button! WTH? Now that's willpower! Hehe!

In the comment area, post your thoughts on this moral dilemma. Also, what you would do if faced with the situation in The Box. Or how about Indecent Proposal? Or even the Dark Knight one. Holla atcho boy.

* BTW, the sister (Minna Sugimoto) is starting her new blog today at blogs.HawaiiNewsNow.com/Minna. Please support her by visiting it and sending some love in the comments section. Tanks ah! :)

Fave Five Friday - Man Rules

October 23rd, 2009
By



Before our softball game last weekend, the team circled up and did a prayer. One of our teammates asked one of the new guys if holding hands was ok, and somebody else replied with "Yeah, just don't interlock the fingers... Man Rule #3!". Ahahaha! I thought that was pretty classic!

So it got me thinking. What other "Man Rules" do we have floating around out there? You know, dem rules that are unwritten and unspoken, but very well known.

Here are a few off the top of my head (and here are some I actually found from a previous post). Feel free to use the comment area below to add your own! :)

  • Beer and Poke, it's what's for dinner.
  • Boys don't cry.
  • You are disowned if you don't know how to change your own oil or change a flat tire.
  • Don't watch sissy shows like The Hills. Oops! ;)
  • Shaving/grooming should only be done around your mouth area.
  • Man to man hugs should last no longer than 0.00001 seconds. :P

Any others out there? Feel free to be as creative as you can!

Shooots! Happy VHO7V Friday y'all! Have a great (UFC 104) weekend and I'll see ya next week!

Woah! NaPueo is on a roll yo! After correctly guessing last week's contest and the week before thatas well, "da owl" is shooting for the coveted tri-fecta holy grail. snow, Paco, and Syxx have all done the back-to-backers, but none of 'em were able to complete the ol' turkey. Will NaPueo be the first? Tune in to find out! 8)
