"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"Philosophy is to the real world as masturbation is to sex" - Karl Marx

***

I'm going for an exam in an ice skating rink now. Whee.

Vechtsebanen

"De Vechtsebanen is vooral bekend als de kunstijsbaan van Utrecht.

De kunstijsbaan bestaat uit een ijshockeystadion en een overdekte 400 meter kunstijsbaan.

Wat veel mensen echter niet weten is dat er op de Vechtsebanen ook een bowlingcentrum, een vergadercentrum en een examenhal gevestigd zijn.

Het bowlingcentrum heeft 12 volautomatische bowlingbanen en het vergadercentrum heeft 9 zalen variërend van 48m² tot 300 m².

In de examenhal kunnen examens worden afgenomen tot maximaal 1.500 kandidaten.

Het ijshockeystadion wordt regelmatig gebruikt voor evenementen tot 4.000 personen. "

Me: No one looks towards the Philippines and Thailand as models. Yet the Powers That Be always neglect to mention how much worse it was under Marcos and the military regimes.

Someone: I do remember my dad mentioning to me onnce, on stable the Philippines was under Ferdinand Marcos, having fast food restaurants before Macs opened shop here, cleaner streets than Singapore at the time, and good government. Saying he preferred it under Marcos must have been the most politically incorrect statement he has made in a long long time and i wanted to laugh my head off when he said that.

I wouldn't believe Filipinos would sell their souls just to have McDonalds and have clean, beautiful streets, and be ruled by a man who squanders his country's money and a wife who lavishes on shoes. Then again, maybe many Singaporeans wouldn't mind having that sort of dictatorial system in place so long as Big Macs are on the table ;)


Me: "Stayers are quitters who don't have the means to quit"
And there's a reason why local students are so bitter.

Someone else: that's really true... i know a good number of students at the law faculty at NUS... or SLUGS as they are apprently called and a good friend basically surmised his class

(1) Those that couldn't get into medical school
(2) Those GEP that couldn't win their scholarship
(3) Those Smart ones who just weren't rich enough
(3) (sic) Those who want to go abroad but can't (haha!)

and something like that.


Someone: but they're [GNU] a weird bunch w

Someone else: we have a case in LT [Lithuania], there policemen in order to "control" riots in footabll match beated everybody, including old men and women that were clearly not guilty

... women

Someone: i'm a voyeur.
i read nicks and get updated on other's lives.

Me: so what do you learn from mine

Someone: that you're comfortable with whatever identity you've found and that you're intellectual.

handles are like identities that u can try on and many people my age change it very frequently, like trying on different identities


Someone else: going out with lesbian women infinitely more interesting than going out with gay men
all gay men want to do is pub.
so boring and uncreative.
they're like male versions of straight women. all they want to do when they go out is to watch a movie


Me: I seek to show him the error of his ways

Someone: wheres the joy in bantering with a fool?

Me: yes I know
apologetics is intellectual suicide
haha

Someone: yes it is
but i think CHC bible students learn a great deal of it
