I want a Supra!!!!

Previously posted in the ‘I want’ section on the right hand panel of my blog is an iphone 4.  But I have now resigned myself into not getting one.  Instead, I am contemplating on getting a tablet this year but as to which one, I am not sure yet.  I have just learned from CNN’s report on the CES that there are about 50 different tablets out for launch in 2011!

Anyway, I have posted a new picture in the ‘I want” section!  I am looking forward to owning my first pair of supras!

High top upper with a vulcanized outsole. Extra heel protection molded into comfortable high memory polyurethane insole. SupraFoam® midsole providing entire foot impact resistance, optimal shoe flex, and board feel. Sliding tongue logo. Ankle support. PU leather lining. BK mesh sock liner

Quoted from Proclamation 84.

By the end of 2011, there will be 7 billion people here on earth!
Every second, 5 babies are born.
Every second, 2 people die.

  • 1800 = 1 billion
  • 1930 = 2 billion
  • 1960 = 3 billion
  • 1974 = 4 billion
  • 1987 = 5 billion
  • 1999 = 6 billion
  • 2011 = 7 billion

I am ONE in SEVEN billion!
