View Full Version : Hello Kitty's working for the Thai Police.

BANGKOK, Thailand - Thai police officers who break rules will be forced to wear hot pink armbands featuring "Hello Kitty," the Japanese icon of cute, as a mark of shame, a senior officer said Monday.

Police officers caught littering, parking in a prohibited area, or arriving late among other misdemeanors will be forced to stay in the division office and wear the armband all day, said Police Col. Pongpat Chayaphan. The officers won't wear the armband in public.

The striking armband features Hello Kitty sitting atop two hearts.

"Simple warnings no longer work. This new twist is expected to make them feel guilt and shame and prevent them from repeating the offense, no matter how minor," said Pongpat, acting chief of the Crime Suppression Division in Bangkok.

"(Hello) Kitty is a cute icon for young girls. It's not something macho police officers want covering their biceps," Pongpat said.

He said police caught breaking the law will be subject the same fines and penalties as any other members of the public.

"We want to make sure that we do not condone small offenses," Pongpat said, adding that the CSD believed that getting tough on petty misdemeanors would lead to fewer cases of more serious offenses including abuse of power and mistreatment of the public by police officers.

Hello Kitty, invented by Sanrio Co. in 1974, has been popular for years with children and young women. The celebrity cat adorns everything from diamond-studded jewelry, Fender guitars and digital cameras to lunch boxes, T-shirts and stationery.

Army with harmony
Hannah drop a load on 'em

Hello Kitty, how can I explain it
I'll take you frame by frame it
To have y'all jumpin' shall we singin' it
Hello is for Hi, Kitty is for Kats scratchin' temple
The last Kitty...well...that's not that simple
It's sorta like another way to call a cat a kitten
It's five little letters that are missin' here
You get on occassion at the other party
As a game 'n it seems I gotta start to explainin'
Bust it
You ever had a girl and met her on a nice hello
You get her name and number and then you feelin' real mellow
You get home, wait a day, she's what you wanna know about
Then you call up and it's her girlfriend or her cousin's house
It's not a front, F to the R to the O to the N to the T
It's just her boyfriend's at her house (Boy, that's what is scary)
It's Hello Kitty, time other people's what you get it
There's no room for relationship there's just room to hit it
How many brothers out there know just what I'm gettin' at
Who thinks it's wrong 'cos I'm splittin' and co-hittin' at
Well if you do, that's Hello Kitty and you're not down with it
But if you don't, here's your membership

You down with Hello Kitty (Yeah you know me) 3X
Who's down with Hello Kitty (Every last homie)
You down with Hello Kitty (Yeah you know me) 3X
Who's down with Hello Kitty (All the homies)

As for the ladies, Hello Kitty means something gifted
The first two letters are the same but the last is something
It's the longest, loveliest, lean-- I call it the leanest
It's another five letter word rhymin' with cleanest and meanest
I won't get into that, I'll do it...ah...sorta properly
I say the last Kitty...hmmm...stands for property
Now lady here comes a kiss, blow a kiss back to me, now tell me
Have you ever known a brother who have another like ah girl or wife
And you just had to stop and just 'cos he look just as nice
You looked at him, he looked at you and you knew right away
That he had someone but he was gonna be yours anyway
You couldn't be seen with him and honestly you didn't care
'Cos in a room behind a door no one but y'all are there
When y'all are finish, y'all can leave and only y'all would know
And then y'all could throw the skeleton bones right in the closet do'
Now don't be shocked 'cos if you're down I want your hands up high
Say Hello Kitty (Hello Kitty!) I like to say with pride
Now when you do it, do it well and make sure that it counts
You're now down with a discount

continued below...



You down with Hello Kitty (Yeah you know me) 3X
Who's down with Hello Kitty (Every last lady)
You down with Hello Kitty (Yeah you know me) 3X
Who's down with Hello Kitty(All the ladies)

This girl ah tried to Hello Kitty me
I had a girl and she knew that matter-of-fact my girl was partner's
Had a fall out, disagreement, yeah an argument
She tried to do me so we did it in my apartment, bust it
That wasn't the thing it must have been the way she hit the ceiling
'Cos after that she kept on coming back and catchin' feelings
I said, "Let's go my girl is coming so you gotta leave"
She said, "Oh no, I love you J~$$$" I said, "Now child please"
You gots to leave, come grab your coat, right now you gotta go
I said now look you to the stairs and to the stairwindow
This was a thing, a little thing, you shouldn't have put your heart
'Cos you know I was Hello Kitty, hell from the very start
Come on, come on, now let me tell you what it's all about
When you get down, you can't go 'round runnin' off at the mouth
That's rule number one in this Hello Kitty establishment
You keep your mouth shut and it won't get back to her or him
Exciting isn't it, a special kinda business
Many of you will catch the same sorta Hello Kitty is you with
Him or her for sure is going to admit it
When Hello Kitty comes, damn-- skippy I'm with it

You down with Hello Kitty (Yeah you know me) 3X
Who's down with Hello Kitty (This whole party)
You down with Hello Kitty (Yeah you know me) 3X
Who's down with Hello Kitty (This whole party)

Break it down!

In America, Chococat is one of Sanrio's most popular characters with both adults and children. Chococat loves to play with My Melody during the day. They often visit Hello Kitty and others to play games.

Chococat is a very Spunky cat who loves to play around. Chococat is one of the Sanrio characters, popular like hello kitty, he loves to fool around with his best pals. He may stop by Cinnamoroll's place to have a cinnamon roll or two! He loves to visit his very best friends and can be a little sassy sometimes.

Chococat is known to some kids as Chocolate cat. It is not common to call Chococat that but that is partly a well known name. Chococat is not as popular as Hello Kitty, but one of the cutest Sanrio characters. Chococat can be very clever at times, but can be a little clumsy too.

Scientists reveal secret of levitation
Mon Aug 6, 12:08 PM ET
LONDON (AFP) - Scientists have discovered a ground-breaking way of levitating ultra small objects, which may revolutionise the design of micro-machines, a new report says.

Physicists said they can create "incredible levitation effects" by manipulating so-called Casimir force, which normally causes objects to stick together by quantum force.

The phenomenon could be used to improve the performances of everyday devices ranging from car airbags to computer chips, say Professor Ulf Leonhardt and Dr Thomas Philbin from Saint Andrews University.

Casimir force -- discovered in 1948 and first measured in 1997 -- can be seen in a gecko's ability to stick to a surface with just one toe.

Now the British scientists say they can reverse the Casimir force to cause an object to repel rather than attract another in a vacuum.

"The Casimir force is the ultimate cause of friction in the nano world, in particular in some micro-electromechanical systems," said Leonhardt, writing in the August issue of New Journal of Physics.

"Micro or nano machines could run smoother and with less or no friction at all if one can manipulate the force," he added.

And he added: "In order to reduce friction in the nanoworld, turning nature's stickiness into repulsion could be the ultimate remedy. Instead of sticking together, parts of micromachinery would levitate."

Leonhardt stressed that the practise is possible only for micro-objects.

But he underlined that, although in principle it may one day be possible to levitate humans, that day is a long way off.

"At the moment, in practice it is only going to be possible for micro-objects with the current technology, since this quantum force is small and acts only at short ranges," he said.

"For now, human levitation remains the subject of cartoons, fairytales and tales of the paranormal."

Their research was to be published in the New Journal of Physics.
