MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – When it comes to advances in medicine and technology, the Philippines is definitely not lagging behind.
Scientists at the Ateneo de Manila University have invented a gene therapy that can cure stupidity in human beings.
By injecting synthetic ‘I’ (intelligence) genes into clusters of naturally-occuring ‘S’ (stupidity) genes, researchers said that stupid people can transform into more intelligent individuals in just weeks.
The research, funded by the nonprofit group Intelligence Quotient International, was prompted by persistent reports that more and more Filipinos — especially elected politicians and anti-Duterte bloggers — have displayed serious cases of non-human intelligence lately.
The new discovery is sure to be among the frontrunners in next year’s Nobel Prize for Science and Technology.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Duterte critic and entertainer Jim Paredes hurriedly left for his second home Australia after two significant news developments reached his attention: the possible crash into earth of a Chinese space lab and North Korea’s statement regarding an imminent nuclear war.
Paredes is a dual citizen of the Philippines and Australia.
In a text message to The Adobo Chronicles, Paredes said he was very scared about the twin news and that his first impulse was to stay as far away as possible from harms way.
“Unlike the Philippines, Australia is a remote pathway for either the space lab debris or the nuclear bomb because of its proximity from North Korea and the trajectory of the falling debris,” Paredes said.
Well, we can’t blame him. Survival first before politics.
LONDON, Great Britain (The Adobo Chronicles, London Bureau) – It took R.J. Nieto (a.k.a. Thinking Pinoy) and Sass Rogando Sasot to finally unmask the real identity of the person behind the controversial Pinoy Ako Blog (PAB).
Maria Josephina Vergina “Jover” Laurio’s PAB is known for its candor and criticism of the Duterte administration.
But it took the BBC to unmask the fact that Laurio is not Filipino. Rather she is Philippino.
The Adobo Chronicles is still trying to investigate where that country — Philippinoines? — is located.
