Jokes / Perfect Mathematics
« on: January 30, 2007, 05:58:10 AM »
Here is a little something someone sent me that is indisputable mathematical
logic. It also made me Laugh Out Loud.
This is a strictly mathematical goes like this:

What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about
those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to
those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about
achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these


is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.


8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%


11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But ,

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%


2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.

1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that While Hard work and
Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it's the
Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.

Football / Warrior Nation Fund
« on: October 14, 2006, 12:21:53 AM »

I think the Warrior Nation should be the voice of the fans(us here online and others) and speak more to the public and the organizations that be. We should also start a fund with a minimal contribution of $25US be it a yearly due or semi-annually. This fund will be used for events that we as members deem important to the development of our nations football future i.e. scholarship donations ets... Logistics, and management is not as hard as it seems. I will be willing to be an outside auditor to ensure that monies are not used wantantly. As in all organizations of the type the use of funds must be voted on by the board members. WE as members that donate monies are authorized to know when and how the monies are to be spend therefore all actions to donate or spend over a certain amount will be voted apon be the members. They will have a 15-30 day notification of all action that require vote.

Sorry I volunteered my self to audit for various reasons:
1. Thats what I do on a daily basis for the military.
2. My distance from trinidad makes it hard for me to do anything else.
3. I will be able to organise a disintrested party with me to do audits.
4. It is cheaper for my to call enyone of you or set up conferance calls than for anyone else since all I do here is broadband therefore alot cheapper. eg 1hr calling the us I paid less than 1euro.
5. I think I have a good business miind(apart for studying Business and Financial management).

I can go into the fine details about reciepts and financial statements but I want to see what you guys think. The first vote is for the fund then if we agree on it then I will setup a vote for how often. I don't know how to set up two votes on one thread. I myself I am willing to pay $100 annually i.e. $50.00 every six months or $25.00 every 3mths.

Lets get this result first then we will discuss the details later. Please leave the details for later discussion. Vote and place suggestions here. If you vote no please state your reason(s)

Jokes / What Starts with F and ends with K
« on: September 06, 2006, 12:14:38 AM »
A first-grade teacher, Ms. Brooks, was having trouble with one of her students. The teacher asked, "Harry, what's your problem?"

Harry answered, "I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!"

Ms. Brooks had had enough. She took Harry to the principal's office.

While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was. The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the boy a test. If he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed.

Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.


Principal: "What is 3 x 3?"


Harry: "9."


Principal: "What is 6 x 6?"


Harry: "36."

And so it went with every question the principal thought a 3rd grader should know.


The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her, "I think Harry can go to the 3rd grade."


Ms. Brooks says to the principal, "Let me ask him some questions."


The principal and Harry both agreed.


Ms. Brooks asks, "What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?"

Harry, after a moment: "Legs."

Ms. Brooks: "What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?"

The principal wondered why would she ask such a question!


Harry replied: "Pockets."


Ms. Brooks: "What does a dog do that a man steps into?"


Harry: "Pants."


Ms. Brooks: What starts with a C, ends with a T, is hairy, oval, delicious and contains thin, whitish liquid?"

Harry: "Coconut."

The principal sat forward with his mouth hanging open.


Ms. Brooks: "What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?"


The principal's eyes opened really wide and before he could stop the answer, Harry replied, "Bubble gum."

Ms. Brooks: "What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs?"

Harry: "Shake hands."


The principal was trembling.

Ms. Brooks: "What word starts with an 'F' and ends in 'K' that means a lot of heat and excitement?"

Harry: "Firetruck."

The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher, "Put Harry in the fifth-grade, I got the last seven questions wrong......

« on: June 12, 2006, 01:37:41 AM »
Was it me (I think not) They messed up our anthem in that game. Had everybody looking like something wrong with what we was singing. I replayed my video I made and I heard it again right at the start. De music was wrong.

Forged from the love of liberty
In the fires of hope and pray    They skipped these two lines Boy ah was mad
With boundless faith in our destiny
We solemnly declare

side by side we stand
Islands of the blue Caribbean sea.................

Ah was so mad but,

Tell me your thoughts about that if you heard it. I really hope they correct it next time

Football / Swedes offer T&T tough baptism
« on: June 07, 2006, 11:14:54 AM »
7 June 2006

On 10 June at 18:00 CET, Sweden will open their account against first-timers Trinidad and Tobago at the FIFA World Cup Stadium Dortmund. The Europeans will surely be considered heavy favourites, but the Caribbean debutants, led by their experienced coach Leo Beenhakker, will be keen to spoil the party.
Colours for the game
Trinidad and Tobago: red shirt, black shorts, red socks
Sweden: yellow shirt, yellow shorts, yellow socks 

View the Germany 2006 match schedule

The players
Tiny Trinidad’s hopes will be pinned squarely on their two ageing stars, Dwight Yorke and Russell Latapy. Still considered driving forces, the pair will be doing their all to set the table for top scorer Stern John while imposing Rangers centre-back Marvin Andrews tidies up at the back. He and goalkeeper Shaka Hislop are bound to have plenty of work to do with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrik Larsson and Freddie Ljungberg leading the attacking threat for the Swedes. In all, the match should represent something of a baptism of fire for T&T – the smallest nation ever to qualify for a FIFA World Cup™ finals and only the fourth participant from the Caribbean.

How they qualified
After the decision was made to award the fourth team in the CONCACAF Zone spot a play-off against Asia's fourth team, Trinidad and Tobago jumped on the opportunity. After finishing behind the USA, Mexico and Costa Rica, they were victorious in a two-legged play-off with Bahrain for a spot in Germany. Sweden, on the other hand, roared to the top of European qualifying Group 8 to finish level on points with Croatia. Although they finished second in the group, their impressive points return - they won eight of their ten games - earned them one of the automatic qualifying places for best runners-up.

Previous meetings
As this will be T&T’s first finals, the two sides have clearly never met on the world’s top stage. But the two did square off once before, in November 1983 in Port of Spain when the home side were beaten 5-0. They will be hoping for better things this time around as they aim to become the first finals debutant from CONCACAF to win their opening match.

Tournament history
Previously, the closest T&T came to reaching the finals was in 1990 when they needed only a draw at home against the United States to reach Italy. Yorke and Latapy were both in the team that lost out that day. Sweden, for their part, have an impressive finals history. In 1958 they reached the Final on home soil. They also finished fourth in 1938 and reached the semi-finals again in 1994. In all they have qualified for ten instalments of the FIFA World Cup and are never an easy opponent.

Key contest
The responsibility of keeping a lid on the Swedish strike force of Ibrahimovic and Larsson will fall to Andrews. But if he and Hislop stand firm, Trinidad have a chance as John, Yorke and Latapy could give Olof Mellberg and Co a hard time at the other end.

The coaches
Dutchman Beenhakker took over for Trinidad midway through a stop-start qualifying campaign. The team’s fortunes immediately improved with the former Real Madrid, Ajax and Netherlands boss on board. He commands the respect of the players and seems to have brought a little discipline to a team not short of skill. Sweden coach Lars Lagerback, meanwhile, is known as a pure player’s manager. Now alone after the departure of Tommy Soderberg, he is keen on meticulous preparation and keeps a database of potential opposition players.

Tanty Karen's Moral
  The teacher gave her class an assignment... Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it.  The next day the kids came back and one by one began to tell their stories.
Ashley said, "My father's a farmer and we have a lot of egg-laying hens.One time we were taking our eggs to market in a basket on the front seat of the car when we hit a big bump in the road and all the eggs went flying and broke and made a mess."  "What's the moral of the story?"
asked the teacher.  "Don't put all your eggs in one basket!"  "Very good," said the teacher.
  Next little Sarah raised her hand and said, "Our family are farmers too.
But we raise chickens for the meat market. We had a dozen eggs one time, but when they hatched we only got ten live chicks, and the moral to this story is, "don't count your chickens before they're hatched."  "That was a fine story Sarah. Johnny, do you have a story to share?"
   "Yes, my daddy tell me this story about my Tanty Karen.  Tanty Karen was a pilot in the Gulf War and she plane get hit. She had to jump out over enemy territory and all she had was a bottle of whisky, a machine gun and a machete.
She drink the whisky on she way down so it wouldn't break and then she landed right in the middle of 100 enemy troops. She killed seventy ah them with the machine gun until she ran out of bullets. Then she killed twenty more with the machete until the blade broke. Then she killed the last ten with her bare hands."  "Good heavens," said the horrified teacher, "what kind of moral did your daddy tell you from that horrible story?"  "Stay the hell away from tanty Karen when she's been drinking"

2006 World Cup - Germany / Lodging
« on: May 09, 2006, 04:44:00 AM »
I had posted a topic for those that were interested in me renting a place for all of you all to stay that would have been logistically good with a notification date in March as cut off. I asked everyone to PM me and Pay 1/2 15 March to confirm. then 25% in April and the final part when you arrived. PPL PMed me but no one paid. The lodging cost was 30-40Euros a night. No one Payed or even said that they were going to pay in April. Therefore I had to give up the place. I was not willing to put up my own cash then no one comes. Transportion to and from games would have been arranged including touristic trips and trips to visit the team at their hotel since I do have a bus licence.

The owner had alot of offers and could not hold it for me till end of April-May. Now I am receiving request for lodging. I am truly sorry but I don't have any low cost lodging that I can find right now. I will however arrange to have a day that members can come to my house and have possibly a BBQ or cook out. I am still willing to support in any other way posible.

Trinidad coach Beenhakker optimistic for finals
Mike Collett

LONDON, Feb 28 (Reuters) - Trinidad & Tobago coach Leo Beenhakker believes his team could be a surprise package at the World Cup once they have spent more time training together.

The 64-year-old Dutchman said on Tuesday he was pleased with the way they had played in their 2-0 warm-up win over Iceland at Loftus Road, but they had the potential to do far better.

'Players are coming back to train with us from all over the world and we are having just three or four days together,' he told reporters as they began preparing for this year's finals.

'They all come from different football cultures and play in different leagues so sometimes it is hard for them to adapt quickly to the way we want them to play.'

'But before the World Cup we will be together for four weeks and that will be plenty of time to really jell as a team.

'You can see the potential in the side and I learnt a lot tonight watching the players who have been called up for the first time,' he added..

'I think a lot of people will be surprised at what we will be able to do at the World Cup. This is a very good squad of players.'

He reserved special praise for skipper Dwight Yorke, who scored both goals in the victory, including a chipped penalty that wrapped up the scoring after 54 minutes.

Asked if he was happy with the way 34-year-old Yorke took the penalty and if he would like to see him do it at the World Cup in Germany, Beenhakker replied, 'Of course I'm happy - it ended up in the back of the net.

'Dwight is still a great player and they do things like that. He is a special player and very important to the side.'

Beenhakker said he would name a pre-selection squad of 28 players for the finals in the next two weeks and then make his final 23-man selection at the end of April.

'I have a fair idea now. I won't be looking at anyone else now.'

Trinidad will play England, Sweden and Paraguay in the opening round in their first appearance in the finals in June.
