Shrek: [observing a giant building] That must be Lord Farquaad’s castle… Do you think he’s maybe compensating for something?
If anything pushes my hot buttons enough to make me interrupt my days of meth consumption it is the spreading of ignorance by Pinoys online. The only reason you spread ignorance is because you have nothing really going on. That is my problem with 1) Pinoy Pride Proponents who celebrate the trivial and the flimsy and ignore the ugly aspects of our society that have lasting consequences. 2) Noytards. As often happens these spheres intersect and for fun I will poke holes at these pinoy myths because it just explains why we are so behind everybody else. Even in this day and age of Google we accept ignorant Pinoy claims as the Gospel Truth. Well, consider me the heretic of Pinoy Pride.

It is not unusual to see an online group in Facebook so gigil about the unaccomplished President Noynoy Aquino. I have long ago given up trying to understand them. It all started with the emergence of a Facebook Group called One More Term for Pnoy! A group that is too clueless to even know that there is a reason why Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush only served two terms. Then again I look at their raison d’etre and I realize they are perfect Noynoy supporters. There is an idiom a fish rots from the head down.
Take this screen grab from this group proud to justify Noynoy B.S. Aquino. If Noynoy is known for anything it is the credit grab. Both Ilda and Benign0 have documented so well that it frees up more time for me to ridicule the One More Term For Noynoy Movement. A fish rots from the head down.
Let us take the example on the right. The Umiray Bridge as justification for Noynoy magnificence. I knew nothing about this so in the attempt to overcome my ignorant Manila centricness I found out that 1) The Regional Development Council approved the construction in 2003 as well as the Bazal Bridge. 2) The Bazal Bridge constructed first. 3) Umiray Bridge’s final design was completed in 2010. Not sure how somebody as unaccomplished as Noynoy who has shown zero capability for foresight in his life could have been responsible for this. I doubt Noynoy himself is responsible for the content on this page but Noynoy himself is a credit grabber and he appeals to people who will credit grab. A fish rots from the head down.
The example on the left is actually far more interesting. Because it makes a claim that is so easy to refute. Pinoy Pridists , Noytards and INC are all very proud of the soon to be inaugurated Philippine Arena. Three groups whose every word I just hang on like my life depended on it.
Again using Google must be so hard since it seems nobody in Filipino cyberspace who likes to make claims about being the world’s largest seems to do it. I did a search for “world’s largest dome arena” All you ignorant pinoy pridists, don’t try this at home. You will be in danger of me being right and shattering your own illusions. Out of the ten hits in the first page, nine declared the construction in Bulacan was the world’s largest dome stadium. All nine pages were Filipino in origin. The one that disagreed claims a structure in Singapore will beat it.
Then I discovered something fascinating when I went to page 2 of that search. The title read “Philippine Arena: The World’s Largest Dome-Arena – CNN. “ Some people based on the headline alone would say “OK, CNN agrees with the pinoy websites, game over scrap your premise Gogs”. Like I said, everything I ever wrote I wrote under the influence of meth. The question I asked was ” if CNN has a much a bigger name worldwide than these bozos why are they relegated to page 2 of Google?”.
I viewed the source article and there it was. A disclaimer not vetted by CNN. The reporter goes by a code out of an early seventies George Lucas sci fi movie and gives his location as Quezon City.
Based on the supplied RSS feed this was the author’s only report submitted to CNN Ireport. Conclude from that what you will. I looked at another ireport that told the story of a family displaced by the recent events in Crimea. As you can see that was vetted by CNN. Filipinos seem to be allergic to vetting.
Merriam Webster defines the word fact as
: a piece of information presented as having objective reality
— in fact
: in truth
I Googled that too.
With that in mind I was drawn to an article in my Google travels called 12 Facts You Might not Know about the The World’s Largest Indoor Dome. In it I found this handy chart put together by iNewMedia.org. Trying to show the “superiority” of this Philippine Arena. I tried looking for a tab in this website explaining their origin like if they are backed by any specific interest group and at first glance I do not see it. I see the initials under their name “RFTA”. A Google search reveals it as a flight school in Dumaguete. I suggest sampling the headlines in the site and see if any trend emerges. Draw your own conclusions.
Going back to this piece of bragging, I mean journalism, “fact” #5 says “Philippine Arena is twice the size of the largest arena’s in the US and in Europe/” Keep in mind the premise here is “facts”. In the chart they put the word “indoor”. I will spare you the dictionary definition and I will go with the definition of “indoor” as “not outside”.
“You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts.”
Daniel Patrick Moynihan
Many of you may not be sports fans but for some reason the creator of that list provided it under the premise of giving us facts/ he or she used as examples venues that host NBA teams. Showcasing myopia typical of Pinoy Pridists and Noytards. I do not really propose to give you facts here in GRP, just my opinion supported the way I see fit. And I love mocking people who give you their narrow, biased opinion disguised as “fact”.
I just gave you three examples of stadiums in the US that allegedly will be dwarfed by the INC monolith we are supposed to be so blessed to have. Proof of Pinoy Superiority. If we are to believe the pictures, the events themselves are viewed indoors if I am not mistaken. There seems to be an all encompassing roof on all those stadiums I have provided. Those buildings host the Rams, the Cowboys and the Saints of the NFL. If you go to ESPN, their website kept track of attendance for every team whether they played indoors or outdoors. The paid attendance for all NFL teams exceed the declared capacity of the yet unfinished Philippines Arena. That does not stop Yahoo Philippines/ Manila Bulletin from saying it is the “INC arena is planet’s biggest” or the Philippine Daily Inquirer as “bigger than some of the world’s biggest”. They refer in their article to Madison Square Garden and Staples Center as the standards. Do you see a trend developing with being an information source and having the word Philippines in your name? The Philippines may not have the biggest indoor stadium in the world but it seems like they have the world’s biggest something else.
Lost in all this misinformation of the INC Stadium and how the rest of the world is supposed to marvel at it is the fact that our geniuses of the day at the One More Term For Pnoy Facebook group are claiming it as a feather in the cap of Noynoy. Well, with the lack of hair I can see the need to pile on the feathers. Then again a lot of feathers reminds one of ampaw. Apparently the structure is funded 100% by the INC for their centennial. No influence from Noynoy whatsoever. In their homepage One More Term For Pnoy says “One more term for Pres. Aquino to continuously fight graft and corruption and the big bully China!” One of their taglines “#SHARE if you AGREE! Haters gonna hate “. It is simply beyond their comprehension that some people hate ignorance and all that people do that stem from that ignorance.
When it comes to facts, do not rely on Pinoy sites. Just like I can not rely on pinoy voters who vote Noynoy, Bam and Nancy. My father always said he refuses to discuss religion and politics with people. Based on my piece here and others in the past I am making the case the practitioners of both sprout off “facts” like their audience is incapable of looking them up. The thing is in most cases they are right.
It amazes me that in 2014 how many pinoys are so quick to believe and spread the most sensational and unbelievable things. Bill Gates is not giving away $5000, there is no video of survivors of Flight MH370, the Philippines is not mentioned in the Bible as being specially blessed in any sense and no the Philippines Arena is not the world’s greatest anything. Even with the presence of Google, one fact I can be sure of is that KSP in the Philippines knows no limits. I am not sure if you can look this up but Pinoy Pride is seldom accompanied by Pinoy Brains. A fish rots from the head down. The only fact Noynoy’s campaign gave you in 2010 was who his parents were. Inversely using facts in an argument with a Noytard is more futile than Kris’ application to the Caremelite Monastery. Facts just get in the way for a good Noytard argument. Also unfortunately for many pinoy sources of information, facts compromise their obsession with sticking their chests out.
Putting a very sharp needle into the balloon known as Pinoy Pride since 2012.

The common denominator of these Yellowtards/Aquino supporters are the ff:
1) Lacking common sense (Claiming that cost of living is now higher in PNoy’s term than before…why is there an increase of poor people/unemployment then?)
2) Too much pride (Claiming that PNoy is the best/chosen one because he is the son of martyrs…WTF?)
3) Won’t listen to critics/ignoring critics even if said people have a point…just like their idol.
4) Retarded laws such as “national food/falling in line/online libel” are considered great achievements.
Butthurts…bring it on!
“Messianic Kabbalah Light”?
I’m jumbling those three words together in my head, and it means absolutely nothing, even from a philosophical perspective.
Disclosure: I personally know Lope Columna. He used to attend the same church I did: Worldwide Church of God in Quezon City. We used to believe unorthodox stuff then under Herbert W. Armstrong. Then, in the early 1990s, the WCG did a turnaround and embraced mainstream Christianity, and later renamed itself Grace Communion International (GCI). A lot of members got disillusioned, including Lope. They preferred to stay with unorthodox stuff. But I was honestly surprised to see him go for something like the Kabbalah. There’s a lot of weird stuff that attracts people.
He ran through your stop sign that day. Just kept going on and on. He seems the type to enjoy someone favoring his side or damning people that don’t .
One more term means they’re asking for more violations of the constitution, and more deterioration of the other things like MRT and the Pasig River ferry so that the money that could’ve improved those would go to the fantards instead. They wish.
YellowTards are the ones profiting from the Aquino administration. They grew rich from the graft and corruption…so, they want one more term for this dumb and incompetent President. Not only Aquino is dumb…he has also mental issues.
Aquino is now like an Ostrich. His head is buried in the ground…so that, he cannot see his critics…his critics continue to kick him in his rear; and give pain to his butt…he cannot defend his decisions; he has no accomplishments to show; he cannot even debate with bloggers; who are mostly half his age…most were born in the Aquino era…
Don’t even get me started on the “one more” termers. Those people suffer from serious mental retardation and should be put down now before they are able to have children.
The other major BS that comes to mind was when they had those stupid ass claims about the Mall of Asia being the biggest in Asia. It’s not. I think it’s the 4th biggest in Asia if I remember correctly. In one thing we are number 1, we are the worlds biggest pudding heads.
I said as much in the sentence above Gollum’s head.
@G-Man, if U ever have the chance to even see the circus at MSG,GO! it is a place you have to experience, it is like no other…ELECTRIFYING!! it just is….I saw Zeppelin there(among many others)….been fucked up ever since!LOL!
They’re asking for one more term of their president doing abso-f**k-ing nothing?
Those people deserve to have their brains lobotomized but then again, their brains are already too damaged to be lobotomized in the first place.
So they also grab credit and misplace it on their ampaw president, typical brainless behavior from a noytard.
Would we really survive another 6 years of this freaking idiot that f**ks up everytime?
This country is going down the drain and these noytards are only speeding up the process.
Don’t get me started on those malacañang morons that come here too.
They’re the same as these retards that want their ampaw president to further ruin this country. Hell, they can’t even answer why people are getting poorer inspite of the “economic growth” that they always mention in their propaganda.
That FB group labels people who are anti-PNoy as “Marcos loyalists.” At least Marcos did something more than PNoy.
Yes, they “credit grab” and listed PNoy’s “dream projects” (Yeah, projects that only exist in dreams yet these people can’t explain why there’s still massive unemployment/corruption/poverty.
Looking for the lower scums of this planet? Then these people are my answer to that.
Yep, Marcos definitely did more than Aquino V1 and V2 since we are still using his infrastructures and projects until now.
100% agree with them being the lower scums of the planet and I hope they all get wiped out with a plague.
dahil namuno si marcos ng 21 taon , marami ka talagang magagawa sa mahabang panahon na iyon.. kung bibigyan din siguro ng ganun kahabang panahon si noynoy ay magagawa niya ang nagawa ni marcos. at hindi madaling mag linis ng napakaraming kalat na iniwan ng iba sa loob ng mahabang panahon. at pati ang pagiisip ng mga pilipino ngayon ay hindi na kagaya noong araw dahil ang mga bagong generasiyon ngayon ay napako na sa mga kaisipan na iniwan ng mga nakaraang bulok na administrasyon.
Namuno si Makoy ng 21 taon. Naumumunoo ang mga Aquino hanggang ngayon, 28 taon na. Wala pang naipapakita ang mga dilaw kung anong konkretong bagay na ang nagawa nila para sa bansa.
Ah meron nga pala, lalong nalugmok sa kahirapan si Juan, dala ng kulang ang kita, mataas na presyo ng pangunahing bilihin, pati ng kuryente at iba pang mga utilities. Kakulangan sa pagbibigay ng trabaho para sa bawat pilipino, kaya madami na ang nangingibang bayan, OFW man o immigrant. Ang buwis na binabayaran ng bawat pilipino ay napupunta sa bulsa ng mga buwaya na nasa puwesto. Napabayaan ang edukasyon, kaya ngayon ang pilipinas na ang isa sa may pinakmababang IQ sa mundo.
Pero sa kabila ng kahirapang ito, yung mga dati ng mayayaman ay lalo pang yumaman. Pero dahil sa kabobohan ni Juan, tuwang tuwa pa rin siya sa mga Malls, mga gadgets at mga basurang TV shows na isinasaksak sa lalamunan nila. Dahil sa kabobohan, tinatrato na niyang parang shwobiz o boksing ang bawat election.
Ano ngayon ang masasabi mo sa pamumuno ng dalawang ng Aquino?
And they fall victim to the false dichotomy. So it’s either Aquino or Marcos and no one else? Such narrow minds.
THE STUPIDITY OF FILIPINO PEOPLE,,
Singapore PM LEE Kuan YEW said: “Only in the Philippines could a leader like Ferdinand Marcos, who pillaged his country for over twenty years, still be considered for a national burial. Insignificant amounts of the loot have been recovered, yet his wife and children were allowed to return and engage in politics”.
Link : http://opinion.inquirer.net/12827/lee-kuan-yew-on-philippines
Only in the Philippines a leader like Ferdinand Marcos Once renowned by Time,Forbes Magazine,Transparency International,World Bank etc as no. 2 most corrupt leader in human history still be considered for heroes burial by the stupid Filipino’s.Its more Fun to be a Looters in the Phils.
Amsterdam Arena has a retractable roof and the capacity of the arena is 53,000.
Friends Arena Stockholm is a indoor stadium with retractable roof and the capacity is 50,000 for football matches and 65,000 for concerts.
I did some research on the internet about the mesmerism of Adolf Hitler. His magnetic personality and the people he obviously put under mind control are documented. This enemy of man was known as an anti-Christ. His control over people was done through radio broadcasts, live rabble rousing and his book Mein Kampf. This type of mind control was so powerful that wounded SS men would mutter Sieg Heil during surgery! Everyone knows that Hitler destroyed Germany and the German people. His propaganda techniques and mind control are still being used by modern day dictators. Scary but true! Is this Libel? LOL!
I forgot to add that Adolf Hitler used mesmerism and mind control in pictures, slogans, banners, sculpture and actual film footage shown in German Cinema. Chilling but true!
Students of history must be fully aware of the manipulation and lies of the monster Adolf Hitler. On the lighter side, we all know who topped the recent survey as the worst leader in the world. LOL!
Hence people who have a captive audience then blatantly lie are just walking red flags.
@ T.J….Do youknow who the original targets of Hitler were? Do you know why the Vichy gov’t. turned a blind eye to Hitler and ‘let’ him stroll into Paris?
Hitler had an original plan that most people do not even realize and judging by your comments and your referrenced source for your comment you are one of them.
MADISON SQUARE GARDEN ROCKS, all the time!
AND….the last great event to take place at an indoor arena in the Philippines was the THRILLA in Manila in ’75,or NINE INCH NAILS in 2010…
both at the Areneta Coliseum in Manila….not this other place I’ve never heard of(doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist!).
and GOGS, that meth stuff is garbage(I know ur kidding but JIC)…if ur gonna rot ur brain….get some JW Blue label Scotch as its worth the brain damage!
I am partial to the Elvis live album from there.
Same YellowTard Aquino tactic…Marcos is already dead for almost 30 years…He is History. You are trying to deflect the incompetence and plunder of Aquino…the Aquinos plundered the National Treasury thru Pork Barrel scams, disbursement funds, etc…their continued holding of that Hacienda Luisita, which they scammed from the Filipino people, is a good example of their tremendous greediness…
Just checked out the FB page today. Seems like another epic failure. But really still shows how some pinoys can be idiots.
Yeah, they mistakenly claimed that the cojuangcos aren’t related to the aquinos.
They clearly weren’t using their brains when they posted that fail of a post.
WIKIPEDIA???? Is that all you got?? Thanks Einstein. http://usingsources.fas.harvard.edu/icb/icb.do?keyword=k70847&pageid=icb.page346376
But there is one thing that the author of this article forgot and that is:
Those larger Indoor Stadiums, Domed and Retractable Roof Stadiums that he compared against the Philippine arena do host outdoor games unlike the Philippine arena that should only host indoor games. So, among Indoor arenas that host only indoor games, the Philippine Arena is still the largest.
Huh????? A stadium is a stadium is an arena. Right now there have been no games played in that facility in Bulacan. Talk to anybody with a brain , who goes to a real school and ask if Wikipedia is a valid reference? Any cult can put any entry they want in Wikipedia . Not that I know of any cults . You guys putting in that indoor sport crap even if you have no sports because of 3 simple letters. KSP. The Superdome and the Edward Jones dome are indoor arenas that exist bigger than yours.
i don’t meant to offend the blogger but you could have tried to consult with an architect or engineer what’s the difference between an arena and a stadium. Though both may be used interchangeably these structures are classified according to function. Just to give you an example to distinguish the two. An arena is used for indoor performance hence they are normally airconditioned. Stadiums on the contrary are open-air and use ventilation techniques to regulate temperature. Stadiums are never airconditioned since that will defeat its principal purpose of being an outdoor venue.
I have been to the Kingdome in all it’s sanitized glory . I saw Dan Marino, Randall Cunningham , Reggie White, Steve Largent, Dave Kreig, Alex Rodriguez, Chris Bosio , Don Mattingly, Roger Clemens, Hershell Walker. Play in games that count. It was a stadium , it was indoors and it was air conditioned. I don’t need a religion to define buildings for me. I am pretty sure there were engineers there who could confirm it was air conditioned too.
Again, there is my experience and your religion. Who will win?
Wow! I can’t believe there are still people like you Selrahc, who are so damn determined to be pigheaded. If this is an example of a Filipino, then i give up! It’s so darn funny and pathetic at the same time!
Wikepedia!!! The ultimate argument ender.
I agree. A little reserach won’t hurt.
Today, churches prove themselves that their god exists by building arenas. Since their god is all-powerful, it has to be the world’s largest.
Besides, what is the arena has something to do from saving people from hell ? entertain people with basketball, Kate perry’s before ascending to heaven?
Mga tao d2 parang mga bata lang na ngkkwentuhan ng palabas na sabay2 nilang pinanuod sa kanya2ng bahay. Tuwang tuwa sa isa’t isa.
