  1. Sometimes you might fweel rike a weak, powerless and voiceless chao stinkie peasant, but here's a reality check. You are composed of over 30 trillion cells in your body, mostly under control by only 0.03% of the cells (central nervous system) and conscious control of an even smaller percentage, maybe less than 0.003%. Which means the 0.003% of your cells that make all your crucial decisions in life is reading these sentences right now and thinking, wow such a massive responsibility rests on us. The entire Earth has only 7+ billion humans so can you imagine being a leader of trillions? But that is already what you do every single ordinary day. Didn't get yourself killed in a gangfight with samsengs over staring incident/fighting over ah lians? Didn't smash yourself into meat pulp by driving drunk in your rich daddy's sportscars? Didn't die from OD of addictive drugs peddled by your "kakis"? Didn't die from jumping off a HDB because of a mountain of gambling debts? Your 30 trillion dependants thank you for your wise leadership.
  2. Many of these YouTubers, channels or famous personalities are very popular and entertaining, but I have difficulty trusting them because something about their content isn't right: TED (and TEDx) in general Prager U VICE School of Life Kurzgesagt The Infographics Show Marques Brownlee TechAltar Dan Lok Robert Kiyosaki Jordan Peterson Malcolm Gladwell How about you? Is there any famous YouTuber/channel/personality whom you cannot trust and why?

    Why do OLs worship Apple so much?

    Many of my lady bosses really really worship Apple, always buy latest model iPhones and Apple Watch and Mac Book etc. During office meetings will put up photo of Steve Jobs or quote him as their idol of creativity and innovation, never once have I ever seen them credit Steve Wozniak, or even the current CEO Tim Cook. Always Steve Jobs Steve Job Steve Jobs as if the entire computer industry revolved around one man and he is the only one visionary in the entire Universe who singlehandedly transformed a technological fishing village into a metropolis of gleaming golden iPhones and Apple Watches. Meanwhile all of the IT-related staff I've met have been Droid users, including myself. There is no special brand loyalty among us, wide variety of brands in use, but usually a phone with a good spec to price ratio. Why are OLs so attracted to Apple products and their cultish culture? Why they worship the marketing salesgod Jobs but totally ignore the engineering genius Woz?

    Why do OLs worship Apple so much?

    Maybe also because Steve Jobs fulfills their expectation of a classic alpha male - pushy, bad tempered, always wants to get his way, distorts reality, very showy, exaggerated and dramatic. Woz is nice quiet and humble, Bill is nerdy and charitable, so both of them are invisible to the OLs.
  6. Human society has a lot of laws, traditions, religions and cultural norms. All these social structures and rules convey to the individual human units a feeling of control and normalcy, a sense of security and comfort. But in reality this is but a fragile illusion, and at the risk of massively understating it, the Universe is a very large place indeed. If moi ish simply a siaorangs, then perhaps what I can visualize and understand are simply figments of my own fantasizing and delusions, eventually it ish Bus 143 to IMH and all that joking about Missy and free wifi connections in the ward. But if moi ish really an ET aliens then its better for me not to discuss things that can royally fuck up everything. Better to act humanish and keep talking about FTs, piakpiaks and money. What about you? Are you an Eldritch Horror temporarily residing on this fishing village planet for shits and giggles? Or an Central Galactic citizen sent here as a punishment for your unspeakable crimes?

    Why I practice a lot of self-censorship

    For capital ship class, as a yang chewren moi favourite was the 1978 Battlestar Galactica. Compared with the Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyers and Mon Calamari cruisers, the Galactica made more sense because it has proper launch tubes and recovery landing pods instead of tiny hangars with magical force fields keeping the air in. For Japanese scifi, moi really loved the Toho's War in Space ship with the weird spiral screw in front. Now in retrospect the production values ish really bery lousy compared to Western scifi, but as a yang chewren moi dun fucking care, hab spaceships hab chiobus ish keyi oready.

    Moi oredy gave up on Star Wars franchise years ago, not long after Disney bought it. When moi was yang chewren many spaceships have that similar sort of look... At that time moi favourite was actually the Buck Rogers fighter because the lady pilot was very sexy and feisty and so eager for piakpiaks in space.

    Why I practice a lot of self-censorship

    Last night moi dreamt of spaceships again! It was some kind of air force formation flying rehearsal, and a combination of atmospheric fighters and star fighters were flying in a "O" shaped formation. After the practice, two of the star fighters (that look like A-wings from Star Wars) returned to the tarmac for landing, one of them came in too hot and nearly crashed, but luckily the ship was quite robust and stayed intact. The star fighters had some kind of repulsor lift technology instead of lifter fans because they landed nose first which can't be done with fans, also there was no dust kicked up during landing.

    YouTubers/channels/famous people I cannot trust

    Here are the explanations of why I feel uncomfortable: The story is very simple and intuitive to understand. (cherry-picking and selective reporting to formulate an ideal story; appeal to commonsense) The presenter talks without hesitation, without pause or double-take. (emphasis on polished performance can override technical accuracy) The message feels very good and highly tailored to the audience. (pushing an agenda engineered to attract the target audience) The message appeals to some emotional trigger e.g. greed or sense of outrage. (emotional manipulation to push an agenda)

    Moi dunno if it is a superpower or a curse, but moi is allergic to lies, even a small misrepresentation makes me uncomfortable.

    Generally if a message is too slick and too well-polished moi will fweel that something ish notch rite. In addition, moi will fweel uncomfortable if: The story is very simple and intuitive to understand. The presenter talks without hesitation, without pause or double-take. The message feels very good and highly tailored to the audience. The message appeals to some emotional trigger e.g. greed or sense of outrage.

    The market can go up or go down, but the management fee will always have to be paid.

    Why I practice a lot of self-censorship

    Moi have visions of life on a spaceship on two-week patrol missions, slurping noodles and looking out at inky blackness. Moi dreamt of multiple suns and ringed planets, kilometre-long baseships and spacecraft re-entering, not common dreams for people.

    Moi oso cannot understand huai they keep calling me to push financial products >6% interest, hurry hurry limited time only. Whenever I deal, moi will always consider the counter-party interests, if it supposedly only benefits me then something is really off about it.

  22. Nong time ago, Horlicks was widely available in many coffee shops, nowadays they mostly have Milo only. Sometimes moi will crave the delicious malty taste of Horlicks, Ya Kun still sells them but $2 for a very small cup. Moi oso rike the taste of malt chocolate e.g. the "Crispy" malt chocolate (with cartoon blue dinosaur) which used to be under the "Kandos" brand. How about you? Do you like malt foods?

    Do you crave malt foods e.g. Horlicks drink?

    Moi just went to Downtown Gallery Ya Kun again earlier this evening. Had a small cup of Horlicks and enjoy the Shenton Way view, a bit noisy though because of the dance studio downstairs.
