    I feel thoroughly sick and tired of my pointless committal application. What a stupid waste of time. And it was my idea originally. Now I can't get us out of the darned never ending adjournments.

    Why half of all drowners are black: physical proof (now with less offensive heavy metal)

    Have we not a single black, or at least non-white moderator? Why isn't a pointless thread like this closed? Anyone could always post more evidence of black swimming athletes in the US but the idiot who started this thread and those on his side would almost certainly remain determined to shut...

    Why is it that tiredness creates the need to write? I guess the feeling of being trapped is something that we feel an especial need to escape from.

    Windows or Linux?

    Haha nobody who uses Linux recommends Windows. Linux looks so much better. I know most people don't think this is a good reason for using Linux but the desktop effects (previously I used Beryl/Compiz and now KDE4) are unrivalled by either Windows or OSX (IMHO). Plus I love the KDE plasma...

    INTPs as lawyers

    Haha I was a divorce lawyer too! Now I still do some of those but I get to do a mix of different types of litigation in my current job. I can't really imagine doing corporate contracts or IP exclusively. It just seems super mind numbing to sit in the office all day long and not go to court...

    It chilled me to learn that the MOE has mandated lessons in schools to highlight the positive aspects of Lee Kuan Yew's time in power. That is just wrong. If students wish to remember him positively, that is all well and good. But what of the Internal Security Act? Operation Spectrum? Judicial...

    As I walked home I chanced upon a funeral wake, and was struck by the contrast between the small affair and the massive public funeral that is to come, heralded by television screens nationwide. And so I wrote a poem. It's something I haven't done in a while. Some are remembered by friends...

    It is deflating indeed to put up at my parents' after a not-so-short spell of living alone. Exactly like the book The Mystery of Mercy Close which I read recently. Except that I am not Irish, and I am male. There must be something to be gained out of this. But the loss of my weekend...

    So, well. It ended. EL got credit for my case, which he probably didn't want. I would've loved to see it through to completion, but I couldn't. But I suppose God must have had a purpose for what he did. There is a time for everything under the sun.

    And so, my life is back to almost-normal, after a spot of drama. Kinda like a Hong Kong drama really. It was actually kind of fun, the fiasco. The kind of story I could tell my grandkids. Look kids, once upon a time grandpa was cool. He gave it good to The Man. It's somewhat deflating to go...

    Before today, I told myself: brace yourself. Winter is coming. But I've been thinking that I should perhaps have a more positive attitude. After all, it's been a most tiring 4 years. 4 years of continuous struggle, pain, and the agony of being deliberately excluded. 4 years is a short time in...

    I'm also intrigued at how there are a few different worlds in the Party. There's the world of the cadres, the world of political shenanigans, which strangely enough hinges on the whims of a large group of elderly men and some women, some of whom vote almost randomly. There's the world of...

    Smart Watches!

    Technically excellent. Service and repair policy sucks, even though individual service staff are polite. I always wished I could find a formal watch that was really smart (no, time zone and address book don't count). Something with a proper metal rather than rubber strap.
