我的西片排名

I suddenly would like to come up with my own list of 10 favourite movies of all (my) time. It is a tough choice. A list of 10 is not long enough. And I can’t even pick the order. I like them all. Anyway, here is the list:

# The Usual Suspects
# American Beauty
# Twelve Monkeys
# The Sixth Sense
# Interview with the Vampire
# Memento
# The Shawshank Redemption
# The Matrix (I, II & III)
# The Thirteenth Floor
# The Butterfly Effect
# The Fight Club

I know this is cheating. Firstly there is 11 movies in a list of 10. Secondly I stuck The Matrix I, II & III into one slot (but I really treat them as one big movie). Well, it is really hard to choose which to cross out. If I really have to, I might pick "The Thirteenth Floor" because it has the least attractive ending out of these 11 movies.

Who else could have been on the list? I might pick Godfather (also I,II & III to be completed), Back To The Future (of course also I, II & III), The Others and The Hours.

有效商業談判速成法(笑話一則)

This is another old joke from my friend:

Jack, a smart businessman, talks to his son…

Jack : I want you to marry a girl of my choice.
Son : I will choose my own bride.
Jack : But the girl is Bill Gates’s daughter.
Son : Well, in that case…

Next Jack approaches Bill Gates.
Jack : I have a husband for your daughter.
Bill Gates : But my daughter is too young to marry.
Jack : But this young man is a vice-president of the World Bank.
Bill Gates : Ah, in that case…

Finally Jack goes to see the president of the World Bank.

Jack : I have a young man to be recommended as a vice-president.
President : But I already have more vice-presidents than I need.
Jack : But this young man is Bill Gates’s son-in-law.
President : Ah, in that case…..

This is how business is done!!!
