 I find it hilarious that a guy who has been commenting about the nature and teachings of Islam calling me a 'lying Muslim idiot' who is 'dumb' and is in dire 'need to study about Islam' but frankly, he says I don't know jack. I'm pretty annoyed by his incessant and belligering insults and rudeness towards a healthy debate. He claims more than 5 times that I should stop bullshitting and stop lying, that I should just accept the fact that Islam is based on a violent political ideology, that Islam is culture, and that we, as Muslims, promote child rape. He claims that the Quranic verses promotes killings under the name of a religion.

He likes to swear. Typical. I told him that his infatuation with swearing commends this idealic civilised world  (he names this 'world' - America) that he deems appropriate and that we 'muzzies', as he calls us, do not belong. He says the Brits do not have courage to stand up against the Muslims who are 'screaming', as he puts it, trying to establish a Syariah Court. I told him he's generalising the 1+ billion Muslims into one context only - and that is, bin Laden. He thinks we are all radical and a fundamentalist.

Who wants violence now?

He then asked me what was so radical about bin Laden following the Quran? He said I was being inconsistent. LOL. Oh the irony. I then told him the reason why bin Laden is so radical and denounced by a majority of Muslims is because the context in which the verses calls for war is a respond to a threat. There was no threat. bin Laden is taking everything out of context.

And the fact that he was the one who posted rude comments on my YouTube page - which I didn't delete, why should I? - and him deleting ALL the comments I made on his page shows the intolerance he has with counter-arguments. I appreciate a mentally stimulating debate, I told him that. That's why I'm not hiding behind anything. Why does he think I'm watching a debate between Ramadan and Ali? Because I want to understand.

I'm so tired. I know there are flaws about some of the teachings. I do not deny that. But seriously, if you want to blame someone or something, blame the Classical Jurists.

p/s: On a second thought, I'd rather blame the believers. Lol

Who knew that pursuing LLM is so tiring. Too much to read, though yesterday's session on I.L. on the Use of Force where 4 others and I pretend to be delegates of Iran trying to replace the wordings on Article 51 of the U.N. Charter (wow that's a mouthful) was interesting. We have another session in 4 weeks.

I've never felt so broke in... a good few years. Buying a graduation robe can be so expensive. I can't hire a robe because I doubt they have the 'length' for me. Lol. I am looking forward to seeing my friends again. And skipping class.

Can't believe Button won. :s

I think this has to be one of those days where I feel like I've accomplished something - watch lots of movies. :D
I watched Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, The Little Vampire, Wallace and Gromit: A Close Shave (albeit half of it), Freaky Friday, National Treasure, Around The World in 80 Days... Not to mention Britain's Got Talent semi-finals and now a live open heart surgery on Channel 4.

You gotta just love Bank Holidays.

I always find British television shows/documentaries amusing. About an hour ago, it was 'The Great Sperm Race' and while I was reading a case (for Law), the commentator mentioned that we can further our knowledge by playing a game where we take on the role of a sperm. Nice.

Then there's 'Grow Your Own Drugs'.... which I think is kind of... cool. I am going to buy mint leaves, rosemary and eucalyptus leaves to make my own body scrub.

Oh yeah. And if it works, I now know what to give people as gifts without spending over 5 quid. ;) Thank God for Easter break.

So... My old laptop crashed on me yesterday. Very bad timing. Its not that I have courseworks to hand in (thank God for that!) but I have Moot this Friday. So I couldn't typed up my speech nor look for cases seeing as I have to get it ready by tomorrow and by latest on Tuesday. So I bought a new one this morning. Still getting used to it. :s

I'm just hoping that my pictures in my old laptop can be salvaged. I don't want to fix my laptop here in the UK because it would cost me at least £200 and it would take at least 2 weeks. Please... I couldn't wait that long. I'd rather fix it back in Brunei.

So... tomorrow. The big 22. Sigh.
