SINGAPORE 3 JULY 2019: Not to be outdone by recent GrabThefts (GrabShoes and GrabTowel), Grab rival GOJEK has launched a new service called GOJEK OFF.

GOJEK OFF matches you to the nearest partner-contractor available for an instant JEKOFF-customer match-up. “Our JEKOFFs will be as quick as possible. Depending on the JEKOFF being matched, sometimes even 30 seconds come already,” says GOJEK representative Park Choo Cheng.

“Once paired, the nearest JEKOFF will come to wherever you are and take one of your belongings, and relieve it from your possession,” says Cheng.

Cheng adds that there is already a sizable fleet of JEKOFFs in Singapore.

“Sometimes these JEKOFFs just take something that don’t belong to them, very proactive one. We cannot control these JEKOFFs [as they are independent contractors], so some of these JEKOFFs are also working for Grab. While I cannot disclose the exact numbers, I can tell you the recent theft cases you might be thinking of are definitely done by JEKOFFs.”

YouTube Rewind 2018 was just an Experiment: YOUTUBE.

SINGAPORE, 11 December 2018: YouTube has finally broken the silence on YouTube Rewind 2018.

Launched on 6 December, YouTube Rewind 2018 has soared to the 2nd spot on the most-disliked videos of all time, and is on track to take over the top spot, currently held by Justin Bieber’s Baby music video.

YouTube admitted that he had concocted a whole rile-the-fans scheme as a “social experiment”. YouTube decided to irritate the fans of YouTube content creators, as he wanted to see “how far they [YouTube content creators’ fans] would go” for their idols.

While some content creators’ fans replied that they wouldn’t have done such a thing(7.9M dislikes), others were celebrating the fact that YouTube video was such harshly disliked.

When asked why YouTube would call it “Everyone Controls Rewind” without actually listening to much of its fan base, YouTube explained that he’s not here to teach us how to live our lives, but rather, wanted the experiment to serve as a “thinking point” and “conversation starter”.

Heroes of the Storm Earns HPB Healthier Choice Recommendation Over Dota 2 Due to Salt Content.

Heroes of the Storm dubbed healthier over Dota 2 due to salt levels.

The Singapore Health Promotion Board (HPB) has earned the Healthier Choice label over fellow Multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) title Dota 2.

“The salt content in Dota 2 is at extremely unhealthy levels and should be taken in moderation.” Said Mr. Kiam, spokesman of HPB. “When consumed in excessive quantities, Dota 2 players may face health complications such as kidney failure due to extreme salt intake. Severe cases may even develop into cancer” added Mr. Kiam.

“Heroes of the Storm is a much healthier alternative, and provides similar levels of entertainment, albeit less intense.” Mr. Kiam said at a press event.

Closing off with some advice, Mr. Kiam said that in addition to considering alternatives, players can consider “git gud” to avoid negative health implications.
