Observations - 14th November 2015

"Sex is the consolation you have when you can't have love" - Gabriel García Márquez

***

"I heard Jesus was not born in Australia...because they couldn't find 3 wise men and a virgin"

"I want you to do me right now." - Homework

For wedding banquet registration everyone should get QR codes you scan at reception

Planned obsolescence isn't actually bad: cheap(er), constantly improving products vs expensive durable ones with a fixed feature set

"If imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, then litigation is the most sincere way of saying thank you."

The only thing that stops an aircraft hijacker is a good guy with a gun. Allow guns on airplanes!

Is it child abuse to bring one to a nudist colony?


If I try to convince you that Zion Road Char Kway Teow is the best, am I forcing my Char Kway Teow beliefs down your throat?

A position that is so "subtle" that it cannot be articulated conveniently cannot be disputed

"he can't articulate what his idea of morality is beyond what agrees with his own value system"

Maybe politics is more like religion than people imagine - people cling to views despite evidence and get upset when challenged. No wonder it's one of the Holy Trinity of topics (sex, politics and religion) that are not for polite conversation

Taking an unpopular position is not the same thing as playing devil's advocate


RT @existentialcoms Intelligence is being able to come up with witty tweets. Wisdom is knowing that you are wasting your life on twitter.

IT Security philosophy: you're so scared a car will knock you down that you never leave the house

Why don't websites do micro payments? I don't want to spend $10 a month on a subscription but $0.30 an article is okay (I am informed that usually payment gateways charge a fixed fee for payments so micropayments don't make sense)


[My observation on Singapore's 2015 Elections] If the party can change, why change the party?

National Education was launched in 1997. So this is the first election where those exposed to it all the way since Primary 1 are all voting. Aha!

Amused at catastrophizing about cutting the defense budget. You might as well say the US has an ageing population so it cannot afford to spend less money on health

"We still have 5Cs.
CPF ambiguity
Chinamen
Cheap labour
Constituency Inconsistency
Chee Pie tactics"

If the WP really stole AHPETC money, how come no one has made a police report?

At least Lui Tuck Yew shows us that you don't need to be a "minority" to have people make fun of your name.

Wondering how many Singaporeans think an MP should be a cheat code for their everyday lives rather than a national representative
