Conservapedia for the conservative

That is what happens in on the Internet. Someone started something, a counterpart will appear. I am very interested which direction this site will go. You know, I think more liberal will contribute to this site than the conservative. (Link) to Conservapedia

lostin pop culture tonight - Only Human

Only HumanI love Jason Mraz so much. I am only human. (Song) via Youtube

A squirrel in the tree is he watching me
Does he give a damn?
Does he care who I am?
I'm just a man, is that all I am
Are my manners misinterpreted words or only human?
I'm human

Murderous crow, hey what you know
What you reading about, what you hold in your toes
Is that a twig, are you a dove of peace
A black dove undercover, with another puzzle piece
Are you a riddle to solve all along?
Or am I over thinking thoughts of human after all

Only human
Made of flesh, made of sand, made of you and me
The planet's talking about a revolution
The natural laws ain't got no constitution
They've got a right to live their own life
But we keep paving over paradise

'Cause we're only human
Yes we are, only human
If it's our only excuse do you think we'll keep on being only human
Yes we are, yes we are
Only human, only human, only human
So far:

Up in the major's tree, the one he planted back when he was just a boy
Thinking 1923
Thirty meters and a foot, take a look, take a climb
What you'll find is the product of a seed
The seed is sown, all alone
It grows above, with a heart of love
Sharp and shelter of the animals of land and cold weather breathing
We're all breathing in

The planet's talking about a revolution
The natural laws ain't got no constitution
They've got a right to live their own life
But we keep paving over paradise

'Cause we're only human
Yes we are, only human
If it's our only excuse do you think we'll keep on being only human
Yes we are, only human, only human, so far, so far

And this place it will outlive me
Before I get to heaven I'll climb that tree
And I will have to give my thanks
For giving me the branch to swing on
If I ever fall in love
I'll have to give myself a baby
I will let my children have their way

'Cause we're only human, yes we are
Only human, so far, so far

lostin howto: steam off 7 points

I am no master to anger management. This provides a guide as well as reminder to me that I own my emotion. No one controls how I feel except me. Points,

  1. Options – My observation. Usually when human are presented with choices, we focus on the next steps rather than how I should feel. Like playing games, we cool off after we choose a way.

  1. Write – Pick up a pen, draw something, writes nonsense. Let your pen or keyboard paint your mind’s picture. You should be able to tell what to do next with those images.

  1. Google – I don’t know about you, but I Google my thoughts. I usually forget my anger after I found something interesting to read or watch, or blog about.

  1. Family – Go home early. This is the place where you find love.

  1. Consult – If you have a close friend, this is the time you seek their opinion. If no, imagine yourself as a problem kid and counsel yourself.

  1. Pop culture – I find pops are there for a reason. They make us love and enjoy life. Give it a try.

  1. Pure water – Not coffee, and definitely not junk food. They are unhealthy and stress your body even more. Water has known to be the best healer on earth.

laid backDoesn’t the title sound subliminal? This is a literally, and good for health guide you should read, especially in a stressful Singapore envoirnment. (Link) Really, this is SFW. Your boss may like it too.

Will True Blood be too gore for Singaporean?

It is coming to HBO in early September. Soon local channel like 5 or Central may have to make a decision for Singaporean, telecast or not? I guess no. Singapore is not ready for the truth, yet. (Link) SFW, guarantee by me.

National day rally – big talk on increasing our nation population

Frankly said, I only remember this part of the speech 15 minutes after the show, otherwise I wouldn’t be where I am now. I reckon the viewing ratio rocketed during that telecast. Very impressively delivered.

I try to recall some points, don’t know I can get them all or not. What he said,

- Maternity leave increase to 4 months. Hooray!
- 1 extra day leave. Infant leave. For your baby till he or she is 2 years old. Don’t know whether twin got X 2 or not. Hooray X 2!
- Paternity leave increase to 6 days. Hooray 3 times!
- Etc, etc perks that I cannot recall.

This is good. But hor, I think this is meant for civil servant only. You see, in the name of cost cutting, many company, especially government agencies are moving toward outsource. Meaning you sign a contract, next year we see how.

As a contractor, not to mention their lower wages, lesser benefit, heavier work load, they also constantly have to worry whether they survive after the project end.

Can they plead their company to amend those ‘contract’ or not. I believe they also want to uphold national spirit, like spend more time with their love one, make more children, have a work life balance etc.

Can or not?

P.S Sorry for the low quality photo, I am just a contractor.
