Someone's acting awfully aluminum...

I don't mean to be a boron here, but couldn't he have just found some ear plugs and proceed to barium into his ears?

Come back, zinc!

it was not the first time the Caucasian man had "lost his cool".

Oh Singapore newspaper, you so crazy.
 
2012-11-06 09:29:38 AM  
Yeah Singapoer is not the country to throw your little rants in, I hope they cane him.

with a helpful photo of what a person throwing a zinc panel into a pit might look like.

Someone call the coppers

If you don't like construction noise, stay out of SE Asia.

In Ho Chi Minh City they do construction over night because it's cooler and they can't bring equipment in to work sites during the day (traffic).

And then when they stop construction, it's time for the government announcements over the city-wide PA system.

Earplugs are your friend.

I don't get it. Why did you lead us on?

Au! If I don't are you going to call the coppers?
 
2012-11-06 09:35:49 AM  
Yeah, I think the authorities have his number.

/and it's 30
 
2012-11-06 09:41:35 AM  
The comments on the article are highly entertaining. For example, I learned that "ang mo" is Singlish for "honky".

We shouldn't be enemies, we should be alloys.

Those zany expats. Someone should make a camp.

I see you're trying to be the good Samarium here. I'll accept provided you're not trying to be ionic. We can go to the strip club to see Crystal's cleavage and Esters COOCH.

That's true: all the elements are there. It's good to see you guys forging a new friendship.

Cu later!

How Ironic.

/"there are several decaffinated brands that are just as good..."
 
2012-11-06 09:59:48 AM  
What a twit.
 
2012-11-06 10:01:45 AM  
Well, at least they referred to him as a "Caucasian" instead of an "American"

Lemme hold of the Caucasians in a 9D.
/well she's had two caucasians already

Most civilized places have set hours when you can do construction. Singapore is likely not one of those places, and also very likely employs kids from Bangladesh to work the 4AM sunday shift for $1.50 a day.
 
2012-11-06 10:12:14 AM  
It galvanized the authorities
 
2012-11-06 10:13:19 AM  
He got better.....
 
2012-11-06 10:19:31 AM  
I think his complaint fell on tin ears
 
2012-11-06 10:19:43 AM  
Idiot forgot to wait until any possible witnesses argon. Now his photo's been xenon the web by just about everyone in Singapore. It's probably the lead story in the Straits Times. When questioned, just remember to bismuth...
 
2012-11-06 10:25:44 AM  
How much does a LaWYEr cost in Singapore?

It's singapore... the man is likely to be british.

Maybe's he's mad about his hair.
 
2012-11-06 10:41:44 AM  
Did he do all this quietly?
Either way, he showed us this is too hard for his lack of mettle.
 
2012-11-06 10:58:10 AM  
This pure comedy AU. She should dump his butt collect antimony for the rest of her life.

Did he at some point try to kill you with a fork lift?

I can't think of any more puns. You guys have made a Radon them all, and all the best ones Argon

liam76: Yeah Singapoer is not the country to throw your little rants in


No shiat. Not many places worse to pick.

Boy, I don't miss most expats in Asia. Many are easily the biggest self-entitled racist snobby a-holes you'll ever meet. Out of the entire lot, the Brits have the worst chip on the shoulder (pro-tip: your empire is long gone, jerks).

Happy to be back in the US. Hope they cane his arse.

Damn Caucasians, ruining it for everybody.

Just keep examining every low bid quoted for zinc etchings.

I think we need to get word to Doofenshmirtz for his Big Laundry-inator.

Actually, if you watch the video, he sounds Aussie or Sith Efrican.

He was more than a little anode at all that noise..
