Crime math pun

I just saw a video from YouTube that is straight from GMA's Unang Hirit program where some viewers saw a news about policemen caught a weird tricycle thief. The identity of a tricycle thief is not just sporting a weird clothing, weird hair and weird slippers, you can see the way how he talks.


Now I know that is weird, just as weird as the sayings that is much related to math. For instance there are three sides of a triangle and the fourth side that makes four angles and the measurement of each angle is 36 degrees, and the saying where you can put the square root of every side by side... ugh. That's not much of a criminal activity but the funny talking man claimed that he didn't took the tricycle. Is he admitting the truth or is he giving us another math problem to solve?

If I realize that there is a funny looking thief like him who claimed that he didn't do it, he'll ended up winding himself with a few math problems that sends us back to the algebra ages.

Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG

Mercedes-Benz's AMG division has done it again this time by modifying the modern luxury premium medium-sized sedan, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, into an unthinkable, unimaginable, unbreakable street machine that carries the long tradition of the artisanship done by AMG. The E63 AMG (previously an E55 AMG replaced after its previous generation's minor change) is a top-of-a-line German premium sports sedan tuned to be almost a lightning bolt that transforms the view of the road.

The styling of the E63 AMG is somewhat evolved from the previous generation model; the front view provides a commanding presence thanks to its aggressive front bumpers. On the sideways; you will be greeted by the trademark AMG wheels and the ubiquitous "6.3 AMG" found in most AMG models which are rigged with the "6.3 AMG" treatment, especially the C-Class' own C63 AMG.

Despite the naming, the E63 AMG’s powered with the M156 6.2-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine that carries the power capacity of over 525PS at a maximum speed of over 250km/h and it can reach under five seconds on a 0-100km/h run. On the fuel economy, the E63 AMG can achieve a frugal 7.9km/L on all roads.

Aside from the exterior and the engine, the E63 AMG has more features suitable for the professional driver. Take a look on the Speedshift 7-speed automatic transmission, carbon-ceramic brakes, quad exhaust tips on the back that roars like the classic Hammer, direct steering, AMG Sports Suspension, a newly developed front axle, and the 3-Stage Electronic Stability Program that allows the driver to choose several ESP options that match the situation the driver has faced.

The interior is dedicated for the aficionado such as the Nappa Leather Interior, AMG sill panels, AMG sport pedals, AMG Drive Unit that provides the driver the option well fitted for various situations, AMG instrumental cluster, and the AMG Performance Steering Wheel with paddle shifters. With these interior features, there is no doubt this AMG sedan has the stylish yet sexy features offered for the professionals.


With the 6.2-litre V8 engine, stylish exterior, unparalleled performance, sexy interior, and the best performance packages offered, the E63 AMG can be the ultimate track machine not targeted for the young individuals because of its manly looks. To be fair, men from their 30s to their 50s are the type of drivers recommended to drive this blazing German street machine. The E63 AMG can be a perfect sports sedan ever to be cruised on a Saturday night in the Metro for sure.

GM Daewoo Matiz Creative

Does everyone remember Skids from Transformers Revenge of the Fallen?You remember how this super-cool Autobot look like in car form. Well, the point is that Skids character in car form was the sign of the new compact car created by General Motors via the GM Daewoo division. To tell the truth, Skids will be a take-home car on one name: the new generation Matiz (now with the Creative moniker on it).

Do not upset over the wonderful features seen on the new Matiz because these looks can bring the term "fashionista" to the next level! When the outside has based on the Chevrolet Beat concept compact car as seen on the 2007 New York Auto Show, there are new exterior features that leave owners to inch closer than other compacts. On the front view, the diamond headlamps shine like a 24-karat diamond. When others say that these headlamps shine like a diamond, which is because of the High Intensity Discharge headlamps that shine through the dark roads. Imagine how our pal Skids would like to see it through his own eyes! On his side view, where can passengers find a door that leads them to the rear seats? Just like the Nissan Pathfinder or the Armada, a secret rear door leads you to the rear seats. Skids really do have a secret entrance for other passengers to seat on the back.

On the inside the Matiz Creative, the others think that someone hit an instant jackpot on the inside. From the stylish seats that made professionally for customers, dashboard adds a bold finesse that best served with the new dynamic meter cluster that displays real-time information and the performance the Matiz done for.

The big question is, what kind of engine that powers our pal, Skids, all the way to the danger zone? Here is the answer: the Matiz Creative has powered with General Motors' new 1.0-litre S-TEC II DOHC engine capable of releasing a nimble power of just 70ps at 6000rpm. Available transmission is a 4-speed automatic transmission.


Hearing out about how our Autobot friend, Skids, became the take-home car for sale, what would our Chevrolet Camaro friend, Bumblebee, would react about this? With General Motors emerged as a new GM after long weeks of Chapter 11 Bankruptcy filing, the Matiz became the perfect global car in different GM brands. Is there a chance of becoming a success or a failure for our Autobot pal, Skids? Be prepared because Skids will come at different countries to achieve total popularity thanks to its diamond headlamps, secret rear door and the dynamic meter cluster that you can see on the Matiz Creative! Moreover, when it hits to our shores as a Chevrolet, it will be bigger than our acts of Transformers-ism the same way we did to Bumblebee!

BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo

Most beamer fanatics are always asking all over the world "Could that be the next-generation BMW 5-Series?” Moreover, the answer from car fanatics everywhere is "Not sure. But be patient.” To understand if this is the next BMW 5-Series that should be arriving soon, the Bavarian automobile manufacturer created the other 5-Series that is identical to the X6 crossover utility vehicle.

For the solution to beamer fanatics everywhere, the 5-Series Gran Turismo is the decider when will the next-generation 5-Series arrive. For its concept, the word Gran Turismo (not to be confused about the Gran Turismo video game from the Play station) simplifies the sportiness of the sports car, the beauty of the luxury car, and the versatility of a sports utility vehicle, all rolled into one absolute Bavarian crossover. From the outside, you can see the front side, which gives BMW fans the first clue of the upcoming 5-Series in the future, but to add fun of it, the long nose and the coupe-like lines shaped the 5-Series Gran Turismo into something more elegant and sophisticated than its X6 brother.

From the muscular exterior, the interior of the 5-Series Gran Turismo is very sophisticated from top to bottom, even a high-level executive would take a gander on its true color. Best of all, the 5-Series Gran Turismo's monitor is not just for navigation, movies, and music, but also for surfing the internet everywhere. Consider yourself taking a gander of your favorite internet content on your car, even when you are traveling at high speeds.

The 5-Series Gran Turismo carries three different variants since it was launched, a 3.0-litre straight-six TwinPower Turbo engine, with VALVETRONIC , a V8 TwinPower Turbo engine and High Precision Injection, and the fuel efficient 3.0-litre straight-six diesel engine with 3rd-generation common-rail direct fuel injection achieves a fuel economy of over 18.5km/L. All variants packed with the 8-speed automatic transmission (found on the latest BMW 760Li).

The 5-Series Gran Turismo is equipped with the standard Dynamic Drive Control that controls the behavior of this vehicle. When the Dynamic Drive Control combined with the optional Adaptive Drive system, the 5-Series Gran Turismo creates a perfect harmony for the superior suspension system. For the driver, the DDC provides three different programs, which are suitable for this machine: NORMAL, SPORT and SPORT+. Take note that the interference of the Dynamic Stability Control reduced on the powerful SPORT+ mode, which the driver switched it on the Dynamic Drive Control. Also available for the 5-Series Gran Turismo is the Integral Active Steering that takes control of all wheels depending on various situations on the road.

For the convenience and safety for the passenger and the driver, the 5-Series Gran Turismo provides the iDrive system that allows the driver to choose his/her options while handling this 5-Series Gran Turismo on the road. In addition, the heads-up display shows the status of the 5-Series Gran Turismo and the road. On nighttime, the night vision can be a driver's best friend. At dark roads, this technology is built to seek out road signs and pedestrians everywhere and how driver acts depend on his/her behavior. When the speed limits are just ahead, do not try to left behind with its speed limit display that seeks out incoming speed limits on the road and it is all up to the driver to follow it. With so many safety features such as the Cruise Control with Stop & Go, a High-Beam Assistant, Lane Change Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Side View, Top View, and a back-up camera, there is a harmony between the peace of mind and a pleasant afternoon for everyone.


Classified as a crossover, the 5-Series Gran Turismo takes on all comers with its surprising form, unsurpassed choice of engines, a clean slate of interior features that satisfy most of the passengers and the host of safety features. You are welcome to be part of this new age crossover fastback created by the premier Bavarian automaker.


Audi A5 Sportback

Since 2007, Audi launched the high-performance luxury sports coupe knew as the A5 to satisfy adrenaline junkies and executives everywhere. This time, another A5 adds a completely new dimension in the luxury car industry. Since the A5 (and the S5) is the formidable foe for the likes of the BMW 3-Series Coupe and the MB E-Class Coupe, this new kind of A5 will take down the Volkswagen Passat CC and the MB CLS-Class with its aggressive styling, superb handling, and the optional quattro technology that fits all. Welcome the Audi A5 Sportback.

As a 5-door fastback coupe, there is no surprising that this new German sports car does it all for carrying the most eccentric people in all four doors. There is no surprise for the fifth door in the rear side of the A5 Sportback. From its exotic styling, the A5 Sportback carries a mind-blowing, spellbinding interior that is above all the other hatchback everywhere. From its long wheelbase, the A5 Sportback is a four-seater car and the interior styling is somewhat similar to the entry-level A4 sedan.

Well, the interior of the A5 Sportback is not much of a luxury coupe, but there are many options that you can mix and match to this high-performance 5-door coupe. Consider the storing compartment on the sliding center armrest, a wide range of seats such as the Arcade cloth, Alcantara and Valcona leather, wooden paneling, and all the extras that made the interior of the A5 not just fashionable, but also an all-access pass to excitement.

For overall performance, the A5 Sportback has rigged with the finest state-of-the-art technology. It includes self-tracking, trapezoidal link rear suspension, large, powerful brakes, a ESP stabilization program (on FF variants), the optional Audi high-end technology that allows the driver to select different functions, electronic shock absorber control, and dynamic steering. The A5 Sportback boasts different engines such as the 2.0-litre TFSI engine, 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine, 2.7-litre V6 TDI diesel engine, 3.2-litre FSI engine, and the 3.0-litre V6 TDI diesel engine. Available transmissions were 6-speed manual and the 7-speed S-tronic automatic transmission.


With about 2.6-3.5 million Pesos when it hits the Philippines soon, we cannot describe how cool was the new A5 Sportback was, but rest assured, it is the BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo’s fateful rival in this category. Which fastback will prevail? You decide when you try these fastbacks soon.



When BMW’s X range consists of the large sized X5, the middle-sized X3 (soon to be on full-model change in the future), and theX6 crossover, there is a new addition to the X family known as the X1.

BMW’s newest Sport Activity Vehicle based on the X1 concept is quite a smaller yet aggressive addition to the BMW family. Not to be confused as a crossover utility vehicle, the X1 shares the same platform from the 3-Series Touring wagon. To see how the X1 feels is from its distinctive styling from the outside to the inside. The styling from the front provides a commanding renaissance between man and machine, then, the side view of the X1 truly recognizes the X-factor done from the X5 and the X3. Lastly, on the rear view is somewhat of a “baby X3" because of the rear lamps are somewhat the same as from the BMW X3. On the interior side, the spaciousness of the sport utility vehicle and the luxuriousness of a luxury sedan all fused into one majestic German compact sport utility vehicle that is quite a fitting match against other crossover utility vehicles waiting to vie for the crown of the compact sport utility vehicle category.

From the majestic styling, the X1's performance is more exotic than those other compact sport utility vehicles begging to have some of these features. For starters, the X1 28i variant has the 3.0-litre straight-six engine that is capable of having the power of 258PS at the torque of 310 N•m. The xDrive is standard for this variant. On the 20d variant, they are equipped with a 6-speed manual gearbox and it’s powered with a straight-4 common rail diesel 2.0-litre engine and the choice of xDrive and sDrive capability. Lastly is the high performance common-rail diesel powered 23d variant with the diesel engine that delivers 204PS of power and the top-speed of 7.3 seconds in a 0-100km/h run. With these choices available as of press time, there will be an available 18d (with sDrive and xDrive options) and the affordable 18i variant soon.

The X1 provides a top-of-a-line suspension, xDrive all-wheel-drive technology, sDrive technology that provides the feel of a sports car, iDrive system that provides the driver with all the options he or she needs such as the navigation system, audio system, and many others, power steering, high-performance brakes, and all the cunning features only the X1 has to offer.


Although I can say if this is a sport utility vehicle or a crossover utility vehicle but this new BMW has them all and this is perfect for the executives who cannot get enough of their everyday lifestyles. If it has a triggering point of having the scammers bait not just the X1, but also the sporty 5-Series Gran Turismo crossover fastback in their “2010 BMW Automobile Company International Awareness Promotion,” all I can say it is one heck of a feisty attempt for the hapless computer users. If you want that kind of compact sport utility vehicle, Save some more money to buy it, not to get it in their “2010 BMW Automobile Company International Awareness Promotion” that scammers scam you with the fake documents, the stolen pictures, the spelling/grammar error, and the British Pounds that scammers blind you with their amount of money. Please be advised.


Porsche Panamera

Nothing matches a luxurious lifestyle for the rich and famous: liposuction, expensive yachts, a stay at the world’s most expensive hotel in Dubai, a game of golf, fancy cars, a gamble at the casino, eating at a five-star restaurant, becoming their own boss. Nothing beats fancier lifestyles than the world’s first premium sedan created from Porsche and it’s set to be known as the “Maserati Quattroporte killer” by most sports car fans from around the globe and the most likely target by the upcoming Rolls-Royce Ghost, the Bentley Mulsanne, and the Aston Martin Rapide. Welcome to the new Porsche Panamera.

Porsche’s first luxury sedan is mostly a fancier treat for all Porsche fans from around the world and if that was not fancy enough, take no further to the details that are so expensive to tell. Look closely at the Panamera’s sporty exterior. At first glance, the front is somewhat mistaken for the ultra-sporty Carerra GT supercar, but the side is mostly a sedan look that resembles their early 4-door prototypes such as the Porsche 989 concept car or the other 4-door Porsche prototype that was based on the 911 platform. Moreover, the rear side of the Panamera is mostly a similarity to the Boxster/Cayman sibling. These looks made the Panamera not just a sports car, but also an ultra luxury premium sports sedan designed for the rich and famous.
What is under the Panamera’s hood? Think about this, there two V-shaped engines (similar to the Cayenne SUV) to choose from. The first choice is the 4.8-litre V8 engine that blows a commanding 400PS@6500rpm at the torque of 500N•m@3500-5000rpm and the second choice is a sovereign 4.8-litre V8 turbo engine that has the royal power of 500PS at the torque of 700N•m @2250-4500rpm. With that kind of power, especially when either the Panamera is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed PDK, the likes of the AMG sedans and the BMW M5 might saw it coming.

From the sporty exterior, the Panamera has the most luxurious interior offered for the executive who wanted to spend some free time on the road. Consider having a rear-seat entertainment system that is optional for the Panamera; with that kind of option, the passenger would love to enjoy watching his/her favourite movies while stuck on a heavy traffic. Only a luxurious German premium sports car should offer so many luxurious amenities, especially when these features have not reached its owner standards yet.


With rivals such as Benz’s S-Class, the upcoming Audi A8, and the BMW 7-Series from Germany, Hyundai’s Equus and Kia’s upcoming executive car based on the VG concept car from Korea, an upcoming Nissan Fuga, Lexus’ LS (expect facelifts soon!) and Toyota’s Crown Majesta from Japan, and even Maserati’s Quattroporte from Italy, nothing beats a warm-blooded premium sedan made from Porsche and when it hits our shores soon, the pricing can be a technical knock-out for the customer. Imagine the pricing for the Panamera when it hits the Philippines next year (or in 2011, when possible); about 7,000,000 to 10,000,000 pesos for all Panamera variants! You better save a huge amount of money (or find some luck winning a lottery) to get that kind of Porsche! That is a fact.

To Aru Majutsu No Index Archives 1 - 4

Remember the anime titled To Aru Majutsu No Index? (日本名:とある魔術の禁書目録 ) The anime revolves on an unlucky teenager named Toma Kamijo in his quest to protect a nun named Index and the rest of Academy City from the enemies trying to take over the city populated by psychics? Well, as long as you remembered the rest of the 24-episode anime that was premiered since October 2008, why don't sit down and chill with the drama-music CDs packed with mini-episodes never told from the anime? These CDs contain two-part mini dramas highlighting what's going on with our favorite Majutsu no Index characters such as Toma Kamijo himself, the electrifying Mikoto Misaka, the lovable Index, Aisa Himegami, Stiyl Magnus, Kaori Kanzaki, and the others. After the end of the mini-drama, there are two character songs per CD, giving Index fans some fun time listening to these songs.

There are four Majutsu no Index Archives to choose from:

To Aru Majutsu no Index Archives 1
Archives Part One with two-part mini dramas and character songs by Index (CV: Yuka Iguchi) and Mikoto Misaka (CV: Rina Satou)

To Aru Majutsu no Index Archives 2
Archives Part Two with two-part mini dramas and character songs by Toma Kamijo (CV: Atsushi Abe) and Aisa Himegami (CV: Mamiko Noto)

To Aru Majutsu no Index Archives 3
Archives Part Three comes with two-part dramas and character songs courtesy of Stiyl Magnus (CV: Kisho Taniyama) and Kaori Kanzaki (CV: Shizuka Ito)

To Aru Majutsu no Index Archives 4
Archives Part Four packs the last batch of two-part mini-dramas and the last batch of character songs done by Mikoto Misaka's clones known as Sisters (CV: Nozomi Sasaki) and Hyoka Kazakiri (CV: Kana Asumi)

My thoughts: Forget about the casing, too much fanservice when you peek at, just what it matters is the storyline in each mini-drama can be decent but leaves Index fans some minutes to spare if they enjoyed it better than watching the whole Majutsu no Index anime. When you get bored to the mini-drama, you can forward to the image song which gives you some psycho boost for enjoyment. When you're having a break after enjoying the whole Majutsu no Index series, be sure to listen at these archives for more fun and enjoyment never sensed from the anime.

Hyundai Tucson ix (2nd Generation Tucson)

Since 2004, Hyundai replaced the Mitsubishi Pajero-based Galloper with the Tucson crossover compact SUV to meet the demands for car enthusiasts. Five years later, the Tucson is finally received its much-awaited full model change that other car enthusiasts think that this is the ix-onic concept car, as seen on the Geneva Motor Show, finally went into production.

To wrap it up, the "ix" moniker on it looks very sexy to the Korean car enthusiasts. Just how sexy is the Tucson ix? Here are some reasons why this is a sexy crossover; the front view is somewhat an i30 and a Genesis Coupe mixed it up, a side view is a widened Nissan Skyline Crossover to give it a commanding silhouette, and the rear side that is so aggressive, that car enthusiasts will feel the intense aura inside the Tucson ix.

While sexy on the outside, the interior of the ix is sophisticated. Just one man could think that the ix's interior is somewhat mistaken for the Genesis Coupe thanks to its familiar dashboard, instrumental panel, optitron meters, climate control, audio system, and a seating for five passengers. Best of all, the seats can be folded for luggage situations.

For the audience impact that other people would never forget, the Tucson ix has the host of commanding features that no other crossovers want other people to know, like the Vehicle Dynamic Control, Downhill Brake Control, innovative Hill-Start Assist system, Control, Emergency Stop Signal, Panoramic Sunroof, and Safety Rear-View Mirror. There are two available engines to choose from; a 2.0-litre R diesel engine (found on Kia's Sorento R) producing a powerhouse of 184ps at the fuel economy of over 15.4km/L and a 2.0-litre Theta II petrol engine capable of releasing the power of 166ps at the fuel economy of over 11.7km/L.


The Tucson ix can be Korea's biggest bombshell of the century. Look out men, because this chick has fully locked and loaded with features so hot, you might end yourselves having a date with this new Korean crossover utility vehicle. The Hyundai Tucson ix can be a formidable foe of Toyota's RAV4 and Vanguard or even Nissan's Murano and Skyline Crossover. The results can be flattering for everyone.


Daihatsu Mira Cocoa

The bold cute look of Daihatsu's newest member of the Mira line-up is finally here to sweeten up your way every day. Is it too sweet to tell what car is this? Well, look no further to the cutest Daihatsu in town, the Mira Cocoa.

It might seem to be cute as a hamster but comfortable like a sofa bed. The Mira Cocoa stands out the rest of other cute cars on the road. Wash your eyes and clean up the road before taking a gander to the Cocoa's adorable exterior. At first glance, it might be similar to the late Daihatsu compact car, known as the Move Latte. Look closely at the front view of the Cocoa; you will see that there is no Daihatsu badge on it. It has the trademark Cocoa logo on it. Much ado from the big C mark on it, the headlamps seem to be round as the morning sun. Aside from the retro styling of the Cocoa, you can check out the inside view of this adorable compact car; there goes the same Cocoa logo on the steering wheel and the front seats (as an option). Do not worry about the Cocoa's interior color because it comes in all forms that suit your personality or your affections toward that car.

It's time to say hello to the Cocoa's intense performance that stands out the crowd, like an ugly dog reign supreme as becoming "most beautiful" in the pet show. The Cocoa is powered with a 660cc KF-VE twin cam DVVT3 12 valve engine capable of releasing 58ps of power at the amazing fuel economy of 23.5km/L. It comes with a fuel efficient CVT to keep it long and running.

Aside from being the cutest Daihatsu in town, the Cocoa also has the best safety and security features that bring everyone a peace of mind. TAF (Total Advanced Function) reinforced body, SOFI (Safety-Oriented Friendly Interior), dual air bag, anti-lock braking system, key-free system (that is come equipped with a vehicle immobilizer), multi-reflector halogen fog lamps, security alarm, and a rear camera for added parking safety.


I am very expected when a bunch of Japanese car enthusiasts cannot hold their breath a few weeks before the Cocoa launched on public. Now that the Cocoa is here on the public, you might consider it a fierce rival to Suzuki's Alto Lapin compact car. Honestly, this is the cutest car everyone would afford on, especially on Japan's eco-car tax breaks.
