An Erotic word


Humanity's worst enemy!


Because with stupidity, humans will not be able to see whats ahead of them even if you hang it in front 2 inches from their eyes..

With stupidity, humans are not able to differentiate good and bad.

Stupidity clouds vision, judgement and removes the brain away from the thinking process .

I hate such people whom are imbeciles..
Stupid people in this world should just be extinct before they let their genes affect the future population and affecting the race aversely.

A Tough Description for a 5 Year Old

Recently a young niece of mine was eating satay.

She was holding a stick of satay while she was asking me to join the rest of my family on the dinner table to savour the satay together.

Out of pure cheekiness, I asked her what meat the satay was made of.
She replied quickly ,"Chicken lor".

So I asked her how she knew it was chicken and not lamb or any other meat.
It took her quite a while to answer.

Her answer was ," Because I know it's chicken"...
To which I asked her another question, "How did you know its chicken?".

After that, she ignored me.

Reviewing my question to her, a simple "how" question that is very difficult even for myself to answer.

The question of taste, smell, texture and reproducing it in your own words.
So does chicken taste the same to everyone?

Would my description befits the way how others describe how the chicken meat taste like?

This question was once brought up in the movie "Matrix" when one of the characters in the movie asked if the taste of chicken was just electrical signals sent, from the tongue, teeth and mouth, to the brain. In a way true in some sense that all our sensations are merely small electrical currents sent to the brain.

But the real question is ...
Are these sensations standard to everyone?

ie, if chicken taste and texture means an output of 1ms of sine wave current of 25KHz to my brain from my senses, will it be the same as of another person?

Food for thought..

I love diversity for it is diversity that makes me different from anyone else.

The Art of "Troubleshooting"

"Troubleshooting is an art"

That was what was told to me during the interview of the first job that I had.
I was knowledgeable in computers then and had no issues diagnosing PC related problems so it didn't really mattered that I had a manual or guide to assist me in find the root cause of the problem.

A computer is made of up several core components.

1)The Core Processor
3)Video card
4)Storage disk
5)Main board that all peripherals is connected to
6)Miscellaneous cables that acts is the interconnect between peripherals and mainboard

The fools [aka sure to work] method of locating the source of the problem would be to replace each item, step by step, until the problem is solved.

That of course is the most basic step of troubleshooting....
Provided that you have enough spares to swap around with...
This, of course, deals only with the hardware aspect of PC related problems, not dwelling into the software related problems which would open up to another world of possibilites where there is no easy or direct method of swapping out peripherals one by one..

Software aside, relating only to hardware troubles....
Humans are somewhat like that also.
The PC is a partnership of several core components.
A human relationship is a partnership of 2 beings.

A faulty PC can be repaired by swapping out faulty parts..
In finding out which is faulty, each part is swapped until the combination works again.

In a relationship, objectively speaking, the only way to troubleshoot is to swap to another person to share the relationship with. However, if the problem still remains even when the "supposedly" faulty component is removed and swapped with another one, what can it say about the unchanged component?

I recently shared an old thought with some old friends about marriage..
"The final girlfriend whom the swinging bachelor playboy married, isn't exactly the best, nor may she be any different from the first girlfriend, but simply the fact that he is tired of finding flaws and chooses to settle down with what he had at the moment and relentlessly works to make her the woman he wants and at the same time,constantly improving himself to be the man she desires."

So, if swapping isn't solving the problem, probably one should review what exactly needs to be changed...

Today is the 2nd day of 2007.
Someone had to spoil my first day of 2007.
