WD-40 Is Made Out of Fish Oil

And Other Stupid Things People Will Believe Because Its Retweeted or Reposted on Facebook

Remember a while back, Tim Yap mistakenly tweeted that some reporter had won the biggest Lotto prize?  A lot of people re-tweeted it and believed it because they thought that Yap was a credible journalist.

TV host and active Twitterer Tim Yap has apologized for wrongly claiming that Philippine Daily Inquirer reporter Miko Morelos won the P741 million jackpot prize of the 6/55 Grand Lotto. Yap Tweeted: “It was an honest mistake. My apologies if any of you were offended by the mistweet, although I clarified it in my next tweets that Mr. Morelos wasn’t the winner but the reporter who covered the lotto proceedings. I tweeted those messages without any malice or ill intentions. I have already spoken to Mr. Morelos and personally apologized to him.”

His apology for being inaccurate MISSED THE POINT by a whole mile! The identity of a Lotto winner should never be revealed because of the probably harm that may happen to them.

Three years after Yap’s embarrassingly thoughtless tweet, we have yet another instance where thousands of people believed something just because it was tweeted by a supposedly “credible” person.

Carlos Celdran, cultural activist and ambassador of freedom, said through Twitter and Facebook on March 18, 2013:

SM will try to convince Olivier Ochanine of the PPO on Wednesday that they are committed to building a “state of the art venue” at the Philamlife Hall. CONFIRMED. They are tearing down Philamlife. And of course you know “State of the Art” means CHEAP, UGLY, BADUY architecture in place of a half century old classic. Seriously. FUCK you, Sy Family. FUCK YOU. #FuckYouOfTheDay

carlos celdran says fuck you henry sy

As it turned out, SMDC had not finalized any plans for the Philamlife Building or the Philamlife Theater.   This makes Celdran’s rant unfair, baseless, and speculative.

How could Celdran at all say that “State of the Art means CHEAP, UGLY, BADUY architecture” when no architectural plans had been finalized?  It seemed he was critiquing something that existed ONLY IN HIS MIND.

Fuck You SM Carlos Celdran
Does this look like a person you can engage in a dialogue? I don’t think so.

What made this worse was his use of libelous profanity against the entire Sy family!

This is just plain wrong on so many respects, not the least of which is that Celdran’s use of profanity cut the route towards FREE and OPEN dialogue  — something that could have helped immensely in convincing the Sys to preserve the Philamlife Building, IF THAT WAS CELDRAN’S OBJECTIVE.

Can you imagine, if instead of engaging in “shocktivisim”, Celdran sought the more sober and dignified route?  Perhaps this could have convinced the Sys about the architectural and cultural value of the entire building.  After all, the Sys are shrewd business people and if there IS value in something, it would be against their interests to destroy it.

Of course, all that is speculation at this point and we will NEVER know what could have happened — all thanks to Celdran’s drama.

As it now turns out, it seems that ONLY the Philamlife theater will be saved instead of the entire building and this is largely credited to Olivier Ochanine — NOT CELDRAN.

Music lovers can rest easy after residential property developer SM Development Corp. (SMDC) said it would “save and preserve” the “culturally historic” Philamlife Theater in Manila following pleas from heritage conservation advocates.

In a statement issued on Thursday, the firm led by tycoon Henry Sy vowed to preserve “the complete theater, including all its elements and most especially its acoustics” in close consultation with the country’s music, acoustics and design experts.

The commitment was made following a dialogue between SMDC vice chair and chief executive officer Henry Sy Jr. and Olivier Ochanine, music director and chief conductor of the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra.

I’m a WD-40 user and I don’t beleive it is made out of fish oil, if so then I would be taking it as a dietary supplement. Ha ha. In this day and age of technology being within arms length of everybody, this age where you can say anything for the world to see even the most trivial thing like, what you are eating where now, you are depressed now, it’s really easy to believe anything. Filipinos wouldn’t now how to filter tons of information provided by these technology, that is why we have a joke of a president and… Read more »

Wonder how Carlos Celdran would react if someone started a Twitter campaign announcing HIS demise? Or possibly his disappearance perpetrated by shadowy business tycoons who do not appreciate his irresponsible rabble rousing 😉

Amazing, Paul. You will hire yourself. Cool. That’s a pretty interesting trick. :o)

Haha. Sorry for barging in guys.. I’m bored and it’s actually really fun to see all the effort you put into me. I’m totally flattered. Seriously… You think of me MORE that I even think of me. We should all have drinks together soon.

Mr. Celdran. Amazing. Easter is a time for hope stemming from a certain resurrection. You declared GRP dying in a post which you deleted a few hours later. Yet here you are about two months later. Are you truly wishing us well or are you wishing you can finish the job that you can never finish like Wile E. Coyote?

It’s the type of chika common among people in his circle.

He really should stop embarrassing himself and turnover a new leaf.

Yung pa ‘rockstar’ epek only works for 20 somethings, he should leave that to his boys.

What do you call that defense mechanism again? Projection?

I was watching a video on Albert Ellis’ Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, and an actor said, “It’s never the events that make us disturbed, but our view of them,” (the premise of REBT). Looks like those thinking SM is lying and will still demolish the theatre are disturbed only by their view of the SM issue, even if events show otherwise.

And this is another lesson on journalistic “kuryente” brought to you by WD-40.

Don’t give the guy in the dunces hat too much credit. Not only does he not deserve it but it is almost certainly a fact that the clown had little or nothing to do with whatever decision was made by the family to do whatever they saw fit to do. Giving the family the benefit of the doubt by saying that they “see the benefit in it” is pretty absurd as well. Like any whore, whatever is in their own best, self-serving interest, that is what they will do. It doesn’t matter at all what anyone, especially the idiot in… Read more »

People like Carlos flourish because there is no broadcast debate between candidates, or questions from an audience, so shock media.
