Generation after another, in a vicious cycle.

The name of this puzzle is call “Love” “爱” . hmm, it is chicken feet.

Sex education with robot from Toys”R”Us

Took this photo some time back. I am surprise at how the world never stop trying to educate our children about sex, even with toys. This little odd joy stick between the robot wheels was actually point out by my four years old son, which he calls “kuku”. Too obvious.

Go; bring your children there for an education tour. But I like to find out who is this ‘smart’ designer who puts that thing there.

Oh, you ask, that is suppose to turn the robot ‘on’.

Young Robin hood of Singapore

I have a young relative whom son went astray and turns into shop lifter, being influence by bad company. I realized how juvenile delinquency is on the loose in Singapore. This kind of poster, if you notice, is pasted around many shop or shopping area. Why warn? If it is not getting out of hand.

Alternative kind of conscription possible for JW in Korea

Clouds resemble the divided land I took with my N80 yesterday, by coincidence, laughable vision.
South Korea may provide a very different kind of national service for arms refusing, blood sacred Jehovah Witnesses, in the Herald Tribune, they said,

"This is not to recognize the right to refuse the military duty but to permit an alternative service as part of social service on the premise of public consensus,"

If it works, South Korea will be the first. I can almost see it sparks concern in other nations, like for example, Singapore. Maybe all JW would like to migrate there.

Double your pay and half your weight with mathematic

Increase your salary with algebraicToday wikihow teaches you this self delude calculation, aim to amuse one self and have some laugh. Try it.

3a = 3b
11a = 11b
3a2 = 3ab
11ab = 11b2
3a2 - 11ab = 3ab - 11b2
3a2 - 3ab = 11ab - 11b2
3a2 - 3ab + ab - b2 = 12ab - 12b2
3a(a-b) + b(a-b) = 12b(a-b)
3a + b = 12b

Blogger limerick

The more I listen to this song, the more I want to convert it for blogger.

Some are for passion, some like gathering
Some like to hide far far away now.
Some are for passion, some like gathering
Rumors that you blog, I blog too

Some are for protest, some for pop,
Some likes kidding around with their hair.
Some are for protest, some for pop,
So you blog, I blog too.

Some are bored, some make a living,
Some cannot take others nagging.
Some are bored, some for a living,
Now you blog, I blog too.

Some want everything but neglect their dignity.
Some kept their pride but dropped everything.
Some want everything but neglect their dignity.
At last you blog, I blog too.

Many could be friend of everybody.
Many habits came from other's excuses.
You and I, complaining, none reflecting,
Evil remembered crime, good continue to pray,
And so you blog, I blog too.

1. Put 400 bricks in a closed room.
2. Put your new hires in the room and close the door.
3. Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours.
4. Then analyze the situation:

• If they are counting the bricks, put them in the Accounting Department.
• If they are recounting them, put them in Auditing.
• If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks, put them in Engineering.
• If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order, put them in Planning.
• If they are throwing the bricks at each other, put them in Operations.
• If they are sleeping, put them in Security.
• If they have broken the bricks into pieces, put them in Information Technology.
• If they are sitting idle, put them in Human Resources.
• If they say they have tried different combinations, they are looking for more, yet not a brick has been moved, put them in Sales.
• If they have already left for the day, put them in Marketing.
• If they are staring out of the window, put them in Strategic Planning.
• If they are talking to each other, and not a single brick has been moved, congratulate them and put them in Top Management.
• Finally, if they have surrounded themselves with bricks in such a way that they can neither be seen nor heard from, put them as your Government.


Play Thailand parking culture like board game Rush Hour

Thailand parking photoThis is good laugh of the day for me. I met a friend at Mac who shared his driving experiences in the land of Buddhism with me.

Or go direct here.

Damn if you do, damn if you do not

Finger of GodAs a IT Administrator, some time I do feel like having power of God at my finger tip, and yes, including when I am bombard with many inhumane issue. Imagine, as a computer god, I can make someone life easier as well as miserable with a few clicks, ah, very tempting.

However, it is not the case in real world, try telling your non IT boss about right ways to use a computer. What will you do when something “unethical” is discovered on his/her computer? Can you strictly apply your IT policies?

Ah, God has his dilemma, He knows so many, but can only helped little.

Chemology Mathematic

Deeply confusedWhat is Chemology anyway, a new term to define theory that is so deep, no one understands. It is also about this question,

"Let a, b, c be the lengths of the sides of a triangle.
Show that:
a/(b+c) + b/(a+c) + c/(a+b)
Now see if you can describe the shape of a triangle
for which the above expression is very close to 2. "

So chimp, I can hardly breathe. Is life suppose to be complex or simple anyway.

Famous comic TinTin may face racism challenge from a Congolese in Belgium

TinTin Black and WhiteVia Reuter UK, a Congolese student, Mbutu Mondondo Bienvenu, who lives in Brussels, says,

"I want to put an end to sales of this cartoon book in shops, both for children and for adults. It's racist and it is filled with colonial-era propaganda,"

Now, I don’t even know TinTin, but many comics are considered racist in my view point. Especially Japanese comics, many a time they portrait Japanese is de number one superior race on Earth. For any comic books author to draw or think whatever they want, I concurred. Racist? Propaganda? As long as it is pop
