The Taqwacores, Islam and Punk Rock, now gain popularity among young Muslim in US

The TaqwacoresI am contemplating this novel by Michael Muhammad Knight. A portmanteau of taqwa, an Islamic concept of love and fear for Allah, and Hardcore, the punk rock sub-genre. Taqwacore thus refers to a genre of Muslim punk rock, existing only in the novel at the time of its writing, but since emerging as an actual genre.

Now on, I hope it will appear soon in Border.

The extra 1 second delay in 2008

“On December 31, 2008, a "leap second" will be added to the world's clocks at 23 hours, 59 minutes, and 59 seconds Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).”

This, will dramatically change our count down on 31st Dec? Would you feel the one second older next year? also reveals an interesting fact that Earth rotation is gradually slowing down, sort of like when you reach 40.

SMS cost 0 to send, really

Evil merchant shadowVia LifeHacker, New York Times news, we are actually, being ‘chop vegetable head’ by our service provider. So, if only I can rally Singaporean to boycott sending SMS, it would be the day the Earth stood still, or rather, Singapore stood still.

2 days left...

It will not have much different, so I publish the result here. Thanks for those whom care and cast theirs. Two hundred and 4 votes in total.

Why do you believe in God?

12(5%) - I am bored
39(19%) – I want to go heaven
8(3%) – I am afraid of hell
47(23%) – I want to add meaning to my life
78(38%) – I don’t
20(9%) – Others

So far, I did not receive any mail. Thanks, this is more accurate than I expected. I take back my skepticism. I will take these 2 days to round up and put up another. It is not about religion this time, but a service survey. Make a guess.

Religion needs no revolution. I think.

Evolution of talks about some religion evolution here, interesting short quote,

“Judeo-Christianity is rife with such evolution. Jesus strove to change Judaism, but his followers ended up following the new path of Christianity..”

I may add. Many came to change the ‘wrong’ doing of their culture. They got cast down, eventually, even if they were right. Why die trying to change a wave when it is easier to swim to a visible shore? Face humanity with best of your conscience and let history be your testimony.

Street ads of human

Human street adsWhat you see here is a poster that a Russia web tries to promote its content by putting up street ads. This one says they got a Large Hadron Collider for sale. I notice little tails at the end of each ad. I am sure many will see how human act similarly here. I find it intriguing, given how vast 2 cultures are.

Stop swearing and do it already

Sex before marriageHmm.. What is the pledge again? I will not have any sexual relationship before marriage, or I will stay true and loyal to one partner? Many keep saying that our mind draws only toward what we think, not away from it. Thinking ‘I will not’ or ‘I shall not’ is going to do put you exactly where you will not.

Oh, but this is old thought already. You already ‘KNEW’ and tried this.

A research report at MSBN, quotes,

“Teenagers who pledge to remain virgins until marriage are just as likely to have premarital sex as those who do not promise abstinence and are significantly less likely to use condoms and other forms of birth control when they do..”

8 cats kept an abandoned 1 year old baby alive

Alicia Lorena Lindgvist from Argentine says,

"I was walking and noticed a gang of cats sitting very close together. It is unusual to see so many like that so I went for a closer look and that's where I saw him. The boy was lying at the bottom of a gutter. There were all these cats on top of him, licking him because he was really dirty,"

How much do you love your elder?

My link/friend LieZi posted an ancient code, it is not taught in school, and cannot be found on book anymore. I really appreciate it very much. Some quotes strike me again. I will attempt to translate them here.

亲憎我 孝方贤 True filial piety never changes even if they despite you
亲有过 谏使更 Advise your elder when you see their fault
怡吾色 柔吾声 Be gentle and clam in your persuasion
谏不入 悦复谏 If it don’t work the first try, cool down and try again
号泣随 挞无怨 …..

I am not going to translate the last part. You can study them in 烈子 - 弟 子 规. highly recommended.

Don’t waste your money on motivational workshop

I have a theory. You can never be inspired by any amount of motivational speech when you are down, not even when it was delivered by Anthony Robbins. When you are inspired, you don’t care much even facing thousands of obstacles.

Great read, letters from Johns, faked intimacy

Letters from JohnsI came across Susannah Breslin’s web project that post anonymous letters from real life red light district regulars. ‘John’ usually felt lonely and unworthy at the end, no matter how good it feels at that moment. Sex without spiritual connection, or love as we know it. Some quotes from the post, ‘I want to kill myself’,

“I wanted to kill myself. I went completely against my own moral convictions and support of feminism. The experience was not pleasurable at all, but rather very nerve racking and riddled with guilt throughout the whole act. It was something to simply do it and get it out of the way, so that I would be just like other non-virgin men.”

“I am damaged-goods, so even if someone would want me I can’t allow my baggage to affect her life in a negative manner. Therefore, I am not allowed a conventional relationship.”

Sounds like an outcast. If only our local ‘Geylang’ regular can express themselves.

Surfing the Internet is good for your brain

Internet use good for brainHere, there is finally good news about surfing that immense, porno filled black hole that sucks away times from your real live. BBC news has a report on this. Lets read some quotes from the news,

“Researchers say this might even help to counteract the age-related physiological changes that cause the brain to slow down.”

“Rsearchers also say that, compared to simple reading, the internet's wealth of choices required people to make decisions about what to click on in order to get the relevant information.”


Professor Smith said: "A simple, everyday task like searching the web appears to enhance brain circuitry in older adults, demonstrating that our brains are sensitive and can continue to learn as we grow older."

Thanks, Mr Smith. Now I can show this to my wife and stay longer on the web.

2 twelve year old boys offer to examine your breast

In Singapore, legal sexual intercourse is at 16, but watching movie with obscene sexual content is at 18. I am not sure about America, but wonder how many women here allow a 12 year old boy to touch their sensitive part.

This is not controversial? Two scouts at the age of 12 offered to check your breast on a carpet they set up in their home basement. Maybe some women like it.

I have a serious question for Tracy Gill here, would you lead by example?
