"I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours." - Jerome K. Jerome


My No 1 fan is truly dedicated!


Me giving the same response to various candidates in the Tomorrow.sg moderation queue: Self-indulgent emotional masturbation in a vacuum.

Daryl: Wait, Gabe, are we still talking about the posts or is that what you're doing while you're typing?]

Someone: as a famous commenter once said: fwap fwap fwap fwap fwap!

Someone: Christianity's reality to me is in the way it has changed my life so profoundly, given my friends who came from the most abusive of homes a new lease of life and the power to forgive, and freed people from the ways of the world, and from themselves. This to me is the best way of judging a bdoctrine/practice. (Which explains why I don't really bother with apologetics anymore because I believe that Christianity is not an intellectual enterprise but a life changing reality)

Me: Yoga can change your life too. Or indeed insulin, or valium.


Help for World Travelers - "Planning an international trip? Welcome to one of the Web's most comprehensive listings of worldwide electrical and telephone information."

Centaurs appeared after copulation between humans and animals - "They have had the first in history detailed study of the strange drawings. The study covered about 5,000 rock paintings of our ancestors; the researchers systematized the frequency and the types of depicted teriantrops and determined their ages. They arrived at a conclusion that animal men actually existed in the remote past. They believe that primitives could hardly draw what they never saw. "

Yet another rant on studying Chinese in Singapore - "There are people I know who got an A for the subject and can barely speak the language... the Chinese system is structured such that memorization is essential for doing well in the exams. When PRC scholars complain that they have to resort to memorizing those vocabulary handbooks in order to do well in the exams, you know something is very wrong... And the material covered in class is bloody boring! Those passages in those crappy textbooks we use basically cover two topics: "Be a good student, this is how you should follow our Chinese traditions, don't question the teacher, don't disobey authority, you'll fare better being a sheep, maaaaaa..." and traditional stories, ancient folklore, watered down versions of the literature, etc. Now, the second is somewhat interesting, if not for the moralizing that goes behind almost every one of the stories."

WorkPace - "WorkPace® is a breaks and exercise software tool proven to help prevent, and aid recovery from, Repetitive Strain Injury (also known as RSI, OOS and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)."
My university actually licenses this to us for free download.

PistolWimp - Toei Japanese Spideman - OMG. I'd heard of but never seen this.
