Technological Breakdown...

When you feel your luck has drained away; purchase a Nike Horse-Shoe to bring you luck & to encourage you to just do it!

Also available in stores NOW:
Air Nike Rabbit Foot

… and there was this competition where freedivers held their breaths for setting new records. There were training sessions & loads of advertisement surrounding the events. 7mins, 8:06, 8:50! & now ladies & gents here is the winner; Tom Sietas with 8:58!!

No one really took notice that as a fetus they could hold their breaths up to 122 minutes.

Did it ever occur to anyone that the original owner of a rabbit's foot was damned unlucky!

I was never much for breath holding. I think that a bit over a minute was the max for me. However, I used to be a pretty good underwater swimmer. I could go 25 meters under water without any difficulty.

Btw Omid, I will not keep you in withdrawal much longer. :)

That's why Sohrab Sepehri the poet says:
You need to wash your EYES to see the world differently;)

Re:your comments on me blog...

I as a female dun know much about make up either... It was my bimbotic moment yest...

Anyway in regards to ur post did u get any of the new nike shoes?

Cat said...

Depend on the rabbit's foot if you will, but remember it didn't work for the rabbit.

Em said...

Forgot to ask was it the Horse shoe or Rabbit foot...

Im torn wif the choice cos dey both bring luck...ehhehe

Dr O2 said...

David - yep that's sad but we can assume that the foot was to be amputated ;-) and as the rabbit was saved, the foot will bring luck to the beholder as well...

Me also a good swimmer. Used to be able to do the 25m but doubt being able to do it now. Will have to practice more... but still I do have the 122 min record on my past sportive history... :-)

Looking forward for it David...

Frank - actually my modified version according to our situation says;

Feets are to be washed, Must escape by other means ;-)

Em - in regard to my feet, I always have problems purchasing shoes as I am not considered normal in this country as my shoe size is 47 (13 US measures). Never have a choice in buying my shoes :-S...

Me not really a LUCK-believer. But I guess it is more psychological. Perhaps it is the essence of ENCOURAGEMENT that works best.

Farzad - well the last horse shoe didn work properly! Guess that was due to the fact it wasn original! these Nike ones are much better & they are better looking as well :-)

Hydra said...

Wow really? Isn't true that babies get their supply down different channels?!

Some people spend a life time growing up to be a child.

dear dr oz and em: your (omid's)comment to em came through cyber space to my blog and my email (how interesting). Here it is, pasted in, so em can read it (I went to her site but don't have the correct passport or something): dear em, I always return to view your replys here. Don't bother to bloghop for that :-)

Another point abt my vast info on make up is I don know know anything abt most of the make up elements!! sometimes it seems so silly but it is completely true :-)

P.S: I have downloaded Kaci Browns nu song "unbelievable" seems ok...
(and that's the end of the pasted comment)
Now, for me--I think rabbit feet are much luckier when on the rabbits!

Kimia said...

I guess I have problem in recognizing the luck, cause nothing seems work for me :)

yesterday, I learnd an expression to say Good Luck. I just want to say it here maybe somebody doesn't know it.
Break a leg

NBB said...

i also have the same problem like u, got problems everytime i want to buy real shoes. but for sport shoes, it's not that difficult.

Dr O2 said...

em - oh I C. No problemo.

Jarvenpa - well unfortunately we are not satisfied to C it on the rabbit but in our pockets for luck :-S how cruel we are...

hydra - yeah it is true but there is the breathing reflex involved for the maturation of the longs. It is not like oxygen is taken by the weak respiratory movements.

kimia - well have to admit that I didn' know this expresion!! funny one!

nurul Bahiyah - it is easier to find shoes of my size but there is nth called choice involved as there is usually only one or perhaps 2 kinds available :-S

It is a very sad to forget the wonderful things that we were able to do as kids. In an effort to recover my childhood, I will hold my breath for the next 122 minutes.

Dr O2 said...

good luck Aydin but this might as well book your ticket to the same place where we are before we are born ;-)
