The Gecko: 22 December, 2000

The tricksters at CFF are now using the internet for some of their mis-guided

antics. PPPost publisher received an email from bunrany@hunsen.org with the following

message: "hi Michael, my husband's new site is just great! check it out!"

When you log on to hunsen.org guess what you find? The CFF website complete with

copies of Chhun Yasith's registration papers for the group as a non-profit, charitable

organization in the State of California.

The Capitol Guest house draws a rough and tumble lot. One guy showed up with cuts

and scrapes all over his arms, and a gash on his ear. Someone asked him "Jeez,

what happened, did you get in a moto accident?" He replied, "No, it was

a fight with my girlfriend."

Enjoy it while it lasts. Asiaweek reports that of all major cities in Asia, Phnom

Penh has the lowest car per person ratio.

With the real end of the millennium approaching, and nobody seemingly ready to celebrate

it, various scholars and historians have come up with a revolutionary proposal to

re-configure the calendar in a manner that gives all religions a fair shake, especially

Zoroastrians who are tired of people not remembering the birthday of their spiritual

father.

The proposal is simple. Start the clock sometime during the Neolithic (New Stone

Age) period when humans gave up hunting and gathering, and decided to domesticate

animals, cultivate food plants, develop village culture and build deluxe Barca-loungers

for their living rooms.

Researchers have discovered that the first couple to make the shift were a guy named

Zork and his wife Mabel who built a stone house along the Euphrates River valley

in the year 6,127 BC.

Mabel is said to have become increasingly concerned after Zork was away from their

cave for long periods, allegedly hunting, but who would return regularly without

any meat and the smell of antelope wine on his breath.

She told Zork, "Look, I've had it. I don't know what you're doing out there

but this isn't working. If you want to continue this relationship, from now on we're

going to grow wheat and raise chickens. And at night you're going to stay home and

help take care of the kids."

The idea proved popular with Mabel's female friends and the rest is history.

With the imminent introduction of the new calendar: Happy New Year 8,128 to all!

Established in September 2015, SM Waypoint now has seven drone pilots, two sales staff and two accountants. Though the company focuses mainly on agricultural projects, the potential uses of the drones are extremely varied, going from measuring exact land height for building drainage systems to finding the most suitable location for special economic zones (SEZs) or factories.
