Falling in love with science

Falling in love with science. One of the reasons why I loved science & took it up was its beauty which resonates all around us and never ceases to amaze me.

I've always believed that there's so much to explore in the natural world out there, that vast amount of knowledge would never be enough to satisfy me.

As seen in this Ted Video.

Chicken Rice Diaries

Went to my usual Chicken rice store after my Sunday swim today. Shouted "ji fan yi pan!" at the Auntie.

 For some weird reason though, the Auntie just waved her chopsticks at me without saying anything. Bewildered, all I did was just stand around, hoping she heard my order.

 When the chicken rice auntie finally served the customer in front of me, she sheepishly told me,

 "Aiya Xiao Di! I told the customer in front of you that I don't have anymore chicken to sell! Tsk! Still say so loud!"

 Ooops. didn't realise I had unknowingly given Chicken rice auntie's game away!

I got mine in the end though. Being a regular has its perks, with extra veggies. Heh heh.

A Kind-Hearted Friend

Sometimes I wonder why my friends are so kind, I certainly do not deserve this kind of kindness and accomodation.

Behold the beauty of subjectivity and perceptivity.

The greyness of the matter or the greyness beyond the matter?
The colour of the matter or the colour of the entirety surrounding the matter?

Uncertainty and ambiguity often results in us being in a state of perplexity.

Is there ever an answer which would clearly demarcate that thin line which separates black from white?

Or is that answer just greyness, a paradox in itself, a state which would never remain in absolute itself?

Mind-Boggling Philosophies

David Bain presents four paradoxes, in view of World Philosophy Day, which guarantees to give your mind a good mental workout.
  1. Should we kill healthy people for their organs?
  2. Are you the same person who started reading this article?
  3. Is that really a computer screen in front of you?
  4. Did you really choose to read this article?
Enjoy pondering.

Call me a mental sadist, my favourite line came from the second question:

It is tempting to say that you are a human brain, not a human

Headache. Headache.

A Plea To Live

"Dear Noel, is life not worth living?"

A disabled broadcaster Liz Carr writes a letter to Noel Martin , a man intending to travel to Switzerland to undergo euthanasia, persuading him not to surrender his life so easily.

Reading the words of his letter, I am reminded life's not that bad after all as I know so many less lucky than I.

This reminds me of Nick Vujicic, a man born without arms and legs, but lives life to the fullest by travelling globally, spreading his message of life with a purpose.

Be inspired.

If you were in his position, what would you do?
