Re: Malaysia - corrupt scumbag Najib out and Mahathir (92 yo) is in!

There is a petition for nomination of Dr. Mahathir for the Nobel Peace Prize. A man who managed to make Peace with an ex-political opponent that he imprisoned. He and Anwar, will they spearhead the movement towards a more democratic SE Asian region? https://www.change.org/p/nobel-foundation-tun-dr-m...

Re: China welcomes back diaspora

Well, well, well, a Polish lady ranting about her Chinese MIL. Ungraceful behaviors ruined it for all of us! Reminds me of our Singaporean tour guide in Japan. Reminding her group members to consume plenty of strawberries in a Japanese restaurant. Cause..................... it is a pricey item there...

Re: oildude's new orange cat

Why not put her down? Because she's still responsive and still wants to be here. Who am I to say she should go prematurely? I am sorry to hear this. This is indeed commendable. We chose to put our dog down as it was too painful to watch. To witness life being sucked out of her. And also, we were re...

Re: The Donald ... Getting stuff Done!!!

“We are secluding ourselves into ideological ghettos. We have our own news sources. We exchange ideas mostly or exclusively with people who agree with us, and troll those who don’t. Increasingly, we have our own facts to reinforce our convictions and any empirical evidence that disputes them is bran...

Art in Singapore

They developed the economy but not the culture (see the toilet seat topic ). Whereas other countries e.g. USA develope both in tandem. Reminds me of the Chinese Singaporean child-rearing philosophy. Ah boy and Ah girl only need to focus on one thing during childhood, the academics. What about the ov...

Re: Toilet seats almost always wet!

I have seen this happen where guys dont bother to close the door just stand there and publicly urinate with the seat down. It takes every ounce of my self control not to say what a filthy pig they are. They are indeed very selfish. No consideration for the needs of other people, only their own need...

Re: Toilet seats almost always wet!

Clean public restrooms is one of the perks of living in the USA. Even the restrooms at the rest stops along freeways are very decent. My daughter was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness when she went to her first baseball game at the park, given the volume of visitors. No doubt they maintain a l...

Re: The Donald ... Getting stuff Done!!!

The ability to have a civil discussion / debate with people you diasgree with is what makes US a great nation. And to sit down and share a meal with your opponent after a vigorous debate session in the courtroom.

Re: The Human Story

Are we gradually becoming more crass and less motivated? Not trying to denigrate ourselves but thinking aloud :-k .

Re: The Human Story

The aftermath of the industrial revolution. The price that we pay in the pursuit of effeciency. And did it really make us a more efficient race, when all things are being considered :-k ? I mean, how productive and how well can a person of low consciousness and neurotic tendency contribute to the te...

Re: Mortality Rate of US White Working Class

A brief piece of writing on gun ownership by white working class men. I found many of them to be generous-hearted people with gentle manners. I don't understand why my educated liberal friends and those in the academia are dismissive of them. Just because this other group is less intellectual than t...
