Observations - 13th March 2013

"[She] is described as slim, fair-skinned with long black hair". That's like 90% of Singaporean girls, not very helpful.

Lowish temperature, lowish humidity and no airconditioning - Singapore's Impossible Trinity

It's not so much the pitter-patter of tiny feet as the piercing screams of high pitched voices.

Don't eat meat if you couldn't kill an animal. Don't use a toilet if you couldn't work in a sewage plant.

That awkward moment when you write to "Michael" in an email with 3 of them. And the wrong one replies.

It would be fun to play off two activists against each other and see each hurl accusations and allegations of bigotry at the other. Especially if they were activists in different areas (e.g. an animal rights vegetarian and a Third World poverty campaigner who believes insects are a good way to end malnutrition).

Wondering if people who uncritically accept minorities' allegations of discrimination believed Herman Cain's claims.

Wondering if those who condemn 377A as archaic and discriminatory would also condemn the Administration of Muslim Law Act as archaic and discriminatory. It certainly has a much larger impact than a non-proactively-enforced law.

Should female-to-male transsexuals do National Service?

"who cares, she's queer"
"Not in the "homosexual" meaning. She's just fucking weird"
"She's like hate on everything to be cool"
"I think that's the definition of a hipster"

RT: @QuotingJokes: Breaking a mirror Is seven years of bad luck. Breaking a condom is 18 years of bad luck.

RT: @razzle1337: For those thinking Disney acquiring LucasFilm is a good thing, remember they made the Avengers, but also murdered the Power Rangers

RT: @sickipediabot: If actions speak louder than words... then why is it the thought that counts?

"Friends may come and go, but enemies tend to accumulate"

"Forever 21..lbs overweight."

"Whenever someone calls me ugly, I get super sad and hug them because I know life is really tough for the visually impaired."

RT @JorgenSundberg: Job interview: "What's your greatest weakness?" "Honesty." "I don't think honesty is a weakness." "I don't give a fuck what you think."

"A pessimist sees a dark tunnel. An optimist sees a light at the end of a tunnel. A realist sees a freight train coming down the railroad tracks."

"It must seem like a really evil world out there when you interpret every behavior as a product of "male privilege.""

"In case of Twilight, there is some serious objectification of men. A man according to Twilight exists only to satiate an emotionally weak and unstable girl, to be with her forever ALL THE TIME. A man(according to Twilight) is meant to be obsessed with and only with one girl."

On Amy Cheong:

Wondering how many of those condemning "#racistamy" sniff at people who hold wedding banquets in cheap hotels.

Seeing interesting parallels between anti-Japan hatred in China & racial-religious 'harmony' in Singapore

"Russia had become a ‘telling’ society. The secret police actively encouraged people to inform on neighbours, work mates etc. and many suffered simply as a result of jealous neighbours/workers."

RT @BB_See: Oh dear, the netizens have gotten to Amy's employer. Yes, make her lose her job, won't you, just to feel better about yourself.

RT: @skinnylatte: The internet mob isn't against racism. It has no values. It only knows to bay for blood. Which is why I cannot stand behind the lynching.

"I am inclined to think that people do grow and change after making mistakes. But sometimes we are so focused on punishing the person that we don't leave any room or chance for the person to change."
