God will save me

There was a flood in a village.

One man said to everyone: “I’ll stay! God will save me!”

The flood got higher and a boat came and the man in it said: “Come on mate, get in!”

“No” replied the man. “God will save me!”

The flood got very high now and the man had to stand on the roof of his house. A helicopter soon came and the man offered him help.

“No, God will save me!” he said

Eventually he died by drowning. He got by the gates of heaven and he said to God: “Why didn’t you save me?”

God replied: “I sent a boat and a helicopter. What more do you want!”

For whom the bell tolls

I still remember the first time i’ve heard about Cliff Burton. They all say like: he the “crazy” bassist, greatest bassist ever, First solo bassist… it took me a while to find some of Cliff’s records and performances on youtube. Then it totally knocked me off. Damn, he really f**king bassist i’ve ever seen. His style, his riff, his music stucks in my head, until now.

I bet he still shreds in heaven right now.

Once again, “Cliff Burton is over here. Everyone, hi Cliff, how are you doing…”

Good news about Vietnam’s inflation in March

Inflation in Vietnam decelerated to its slowest rate in six months, official figures showed Saturday, as the economy struggles to shrug off the threat of stagnation.

Consumer prices rose 6.64 percent year-on-year in March, the Government Statistics Office said, following a 7.02 percent increase in February.

Economists say the slowdown in inflation is the result of tighter monetary policy and cooling domestic consumer demand.

“The purchasing power of the population has been exhausted,” a senior local banker told AFP, refusing to be named.

Vietnam repeatedly raised interest rates in 2011 to prevent the economy from overheating and to rein in double-digit inflation, but with the economy cooling the authorities last year resumed monetary stimulus efforts.

The central bank in December cut interest rates for the sixth time since March 2012 as annual economic growth slowed to the weakest pace in 13 years, at roughly five percent for 2012.

Vietnam is trying to keep inflation below 8 percent in 2013.

Vietnam is also grappling with a myriad of financial woes including falling foreign direct investment and fears about toxic debts in the fragile banking system.
