"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”"

Observations - 18th July 2016

I prefer being served by Malay or Indian service staff than Chinese, because they'll speak English. Does that make me racist?

I don't think Hong Kongers are upset about how expensive it is to drive there because their public transport is so good. Carphobes shouldn't put the cart before the horse. Public transport must be improved before we continue to squeeze car owners.

I believe in equality. I make fun of everyone.

“An Activist tries to get a ramp added to a building for easier wheelchair access. A Social Justice Warrior tries to get the stairs removed because they might offend people who can’t use them.”

The most equal societies are hunter gatherer societies. Perhaps we should destroy civilisation.

"In 100 years time will people still be blaming colonialism for Africa's problems?"
"Some people still bang on and on about the crusades as justification for social problems and a reason for hating and killing people 'in retaliation' for those crimes.
That happened literally a millennium ago..."

"ISIS identifies as Islamic.
"No they're not Islamic," say the left.
Boy identifies as girl.
"Absolutely," say the left."

SJWs' hypersensitivity to "rape" (i.e. sex) but not violence curiously mirrors the American sensibility of being allergic to sex but not violence

If Islamist terrorists attacked Singapore, some would blame this on Chinese racism

"When your chances of being sued rises sigificantly when you hire a female or person of color. Assuming both candidates are equally qualified, as a business decision, is it not smart to hire the white guy?"
(in other words, this might be one reason accounting for lower "minority" representation)

"If not for the male gaze there would be very little art"

"Micro aggressions never get micro reactions"

Ironically, people who are easily offended have the least qualms offending others.

"It's hard to believe that advocating prevention equates to victim blaming. Then again, advocating condoms to some people equates to promoting promiscuous"

Not sure why it's so bad to deny others' experiences. If you said you saw Muslims celebrating in the streets after 911 and I questioned that would I be denying your experience?

"You've got to grow calluses on your heart, or you will bleed to death"

"when the world is bad people turn to art for escapism...
when the world is easy people turn to art to make it seem like a struggle."

Why don't those who want polystyrene banned ask for disposable diapers to be banned too?

"my office is opposite cat welfare society hq
wonder if it's indicative of anything but a lot of their main staff/volunteers are bbw"

The BBC keeps going on about so-called Islamic State. They should also talk about so-called Great Britain and the so-called United Kingdom.

If someone promotes stuff he has a financial interest in is he trying to increase business... or putting his money where his mouth is?

Amused that 20th Century Fox needed to tell us that they didn't accept money to endorse tobacco products in X-Men Apocalypse.

"once you go brown, you can't sit down"

Why do many slimming centres only accept female customers? Do male physiologies really differ so much? Or are women more gullible? (Someone: There are "slimming centres" that target men, they're called gyms.)
