How to backup your friendster?

Logging in back to Friendster for most of us who inevitably migrated to Facebook is like going back to our hometown only to find out that you are really in a ghost town. A place once busier than your city’s public market, now eerier than a grave yard.

Let’s face it, before FACEBOOK, you were once a Friendster-baby who once asked “penge testi!” [gimme testi(monial)]. Right? We were one of those peeps that stalks on somebody elses profile, then we realize FS has some feature (that we all want FB to have) which is the “Who’s viewed me

NASA moon bombing in search for water

j/k. you know they wont do that.

but yes, they’ll bomb the moon, still.  not for saddam’s scuds though. NASA’s so thirsty to drink and they’re bored with coke and Pepsi so they go for some fresh ice from the moon. Yup… ICE from the moon.
