Three Blondes Applying to be Cops

Three Blondes were all applying for the last available position on the Texas Highway Patrol.
The detective conducting the interview looked at the three of them and said, "So y'all want to be cops, huh?"
The blondes all nodded.
The detective got up, opened a file drawer and pulled out a folder Sitting back down, he opened it and pulled out a picture, and said, "To be a detective, you have to be able to detect. You must be able to notice things such as distinguishing features and oddities, such as scars and so forth." So saying, he stuck the photo in the face of the first blonde and withdrew it after about two seconds.
"Now," he said, "did you notice any distinguishing features about this man ?"
The blonde immediately said, "Yes, I did. He has only one eye!"
The detective shook his head and said, "Of course he has only one eye in this picture! It's a profile of his face! You're dismissed!"
The first blonde hung her head and walked out of the office.
The detective then turned to the second blonde, stuck the photo in her face for two seconds, pulled it back and said, "What about you? Notice anything unusual or outstanding about this man?"
"Yes! He only has one ear!"
The detective put his head in his hands and exclaimed, "Didn't you hear what I just told the other lady? This is a profile of the man's face! Of course you can only see one ear!! You're excused too!"
The second blonde sheepishly walked out of the office.
The detective turned his attention to the third and last blonde and said, "This is probably a waste of time, but..." He flashed the photo in her face for a couple of seconds and withdrew it, saying, "All right, did you notice anything distinguishing or unusual about this man?"
The blonde said, "I sure did. This man wears contact lenses."
The detective frowned, took another look at the picture and began looking at some of the papers in the folder.
He looked up at the blonde with a puzzled expression and said, "You're absolutely right! His bio says he wears contacts! How in the world could you tell that by looking at his picture?"
The blonde rolled her eyes and said, "Well, Helloooo! With only one eye and one ear, he certainly can't wear glasses."

9 Tips For Improving Self Confidence

Thanks to ZoofyTheJi from

One of my old-day school friend, Dave has been promoted for higher position in his office. But one day he made a small mistake in project and get warning from his supervisor. He is very capable and smart young man with bright future, but his self confidence has swept away by a small warning from his supervisor. Now his career get stagnant, and he started to send some CV to other companies. It seems that he loses his hope to get promoted in his office.

1. Stop putting yourself down
It's sounds bad, but this bad situation could happen to everyone. During this depression, we would feel that everything goes wrong, and nothing we can do to make the situation better. To get through this hard time, just try to:

2. Play at your strengths
Get a plain paper and pen, write down your weakness and strengths. Everybody should have their own weakness and strengths, and nobody is similar. Try to hide your weakness and always show your strength side.

3.Stop being negative
Try to cut down to negative things. Some depressed people do "extreme brainwashing" by stop reading newspaper and watching TV for months so they can cut off negative intake largely. But if you can't do that, just take 1 day break from your office, take rest in your house, turn off TV and throw your newspaper, and read some self esteem building books. It works for most of people.

4.Set achievable goals
Success is a great journey, and great journey started by a small step. Focusing to success is OK, but don't forget to see your "small step" so you can achieve your intermediate goal, which will be your foundation to achieve your main goal.

5.Remembering your success
Have you ever win a baseball game? Or being the best graduate from your class? Just try to remember that moments, remember what it feels like, remember what your friends & family told to you. Don't take it as "past time glory", just take it as your foundation to build your self confidence.

6.Be yourself
You are what you are. Simple words, but many people has forgotten it, and get stuck in a mess. If your competitor get success by their own way while you get failed, don't get mad. Try to find your own way, and do it better than your competitor!

7.Talk to your trusted friend
You can release your guilty feelings by talking to you trusted friend. He should be trustful and he can keep your secret.

8.Do yoga exercise
Yoga is one of the best option to release your stress and rebuild your self confidence. You can do it by yourself or joining your local yoga group.

9.Celebrate your failure
There are no success built without mistakes. By making mistakes, you have learned not to do your work better, and you will get closer to success. Failure is not something bad, it's just small warning to your mistakes and a process to your success. So, celebrate your failure, and build up your day right now!

Nokia 6205 The Dark Knight Edition : Is It Worth Enough?

It's black. It has buttons attached on body. And it has wings.
What's that? Is it UFO radio controller? No, it's Nokia 6205 The Dark Knight Series.
So, what's cool about it?

Hey, it's special series. This special edition has a Batman logo printed on its back, and packaged in a special box (yes for your guess... the box also has Batman logo attached). Beside of standard Nokia 6205 feature (1,3 megapixel camera, 58MB internal memory, microSD slot, VZ navigator, etc), its also delivered with wallpaper, voice tones, movie trailer and screen saver from The Dark Knight.

So, how much it cost for this flip phone? According to Verizon, it will cost you $69,99... Hmm not bad for the wing logo and feature inside. But if you hate Batman, just wait to Auguts, because Nokia will launch the standard edition of 6205 with two color option : striking metallic blue and silver.

Nokia 6205 The Dark Knight series has been launched on June 15, almost 1 month before the movie premiere (July 16). Now we are almost entering August and The Dark Knight still on fire, but nobody knows how far the movie will go through. So, what should I do if the heat off? It's easy, just replace The Dark Knight battery cover with the standard battery cover (included in The Dark Knight Series) and... yeah, it will changed to "original" 6205!
