Original fight club

The mundane existence of a product liability evaluator and insomniac, who is addicted to self-help groups, is turned upside down when he meets a sado-masochistic anarchist who is secretly plotting to overthrow civilization. As their friendship grows, they become increasingly involved in a secret society of "fight clubs" where men act out their aggressions and violently beat one another to a pulp. In the meantime, the evaluator falls in love with a woman who is also addicted to self-help groups, but is unable to act on his desire for her.

Searching For Link Partners on MSN

MSN has a very cool new feature described at SEOMoz.org that allows you to see whose linking to your competitors but not to you.

For example a search for:
(linkdomain:amazon.com.com linkdomain:bn.com) (-linkdomain:borders.com)
Will provide a list of all sites linking to Amazon.com and BN.com but not to Borders…
This is a great way to find potential link partners, as well as to find areas of the web where your visibility is low compared to your competitors.

Yesterday morning, just as many people turned up again at the temple to witness a giant garland being placed on the statue - two weeks before Thaipusam. The RM15,000 flower garland, which was 43m long and weighed about atonne, was made of chrysanthemums which will last less than a week under the hot sun. "A total of five days without sleep and 18 men was what it took to prepare this enormous garland," said Sri Kertanas Floral manager, Mahendran Shanti. "One hundred and fifty people had to carry the garland to the temple. "We needed another 20 men to help lift it to the crane so it wouldn't sway and hit visitors," said Mahendran, who was among those who had carried the hefty garland. It was a complex operation and it took about an hour to hook the garland to the crane and for the crane to place the garland on the statue.

V.Malarvanan, who had sponsored the garland, said the flowers were brought in from Cameron Highlands. "Although I wasn't involved in the making of the garland, I was there the whole five days, to give them a little support so they wouldn't get side-tracked," he joked. "I also hope that this giant garland will make it into the Malaysia Book of Records, following the successful entry of the statue into the archives," he said.
