Comparative and Superlative

Just saw this word being used like it's a superlative.

As described by the Merriam Webster dictionary (online)

Honest hon·est \ˈä-nəst\

: good and truthful : not lying, stealing, or cheating

If it was a superlative ( due to presence of the 'est' suffix ), then a median truthful person will be called "honer" (comparative)?

And the adjective without comparatives or superlatives is .....
"hone" or "hon"?

Just another day pondering over senseless thoughts.

Ramblings of a non-IPhone user

By limiting production and supply, you create the mass desire of senseless need to own something limited in numbers to satisfy their quest to be unique and different.

For the claim to be the first few in being different, the privileged few are then penalized the most for its depreciation instead of being rewarded in their efforts to support a new launched product that has got no history of usage, sturdiness and safety [disregarding previous iterations of the product].

6-9 months later, the whole process is repeated with the consumers none the wiser.

I have to thank Apple, for opening the eyes of those whom now see clearly.

Trained Bloodlust

After the first 6 months of training, I was bloodthirsty and ready to go for war..

They gave me 6 men to train, after another 6 months, we were ready for a war that didn't happen. We were proficient with the myriad of weapons and field-craft and camouflage.

Each time we fought fake enemies with blanks, we also had to fight our urge to buttstroke them with our rifles or stab them with the bayonets as if they were real enemies. The bloodlust was unmistakably strong in each and every one of us.

Another 12 months of continuous training passed by and they gave us our lives back, to let us integrate back to society and be ready to kill again when the time beckons.

Unknown to most, we are called back yearly to make sure that we still have the killer instinct and that we are still considered proficient with our killing tools. And as bloodlust brothers unite yearly for a short period of 14-21 days, the activities we did together in our yearly reunion are best kept unpublished and unwritten, for the details are too ghastly to be spoken or printed. And with each reunion, the bloodlust is often satisfied, by and large, in order to maintain a sane mind when returning to normal life for the next 12 months.

With age, only after 10 or more yearly reunions, could the bloodlust be kept at bay. And it can be said that after 10 years, the bloodlust accumulated during the first year of full time service could be laid to rest. No more handling the tools of killing, no more bloodlust brothers as each will go their own way. Turning our head away from each other sometimes when we occasionally bump into each other in public. For we can't say we were proud of "all" the things we had done together previously and for the fact that we know we are unable to reminisce properly if we are no longer in the service.

For the time rendered in full 2.5 years of service and the yearly reservists training so our leaders can say that we have a deterrent force that is effective.

Happy SAF Day 2014!

Tonsil Stones smells like sh*t

What are tonsil stones?

They are soft beady like particles stuck at the tonsils and this is common in adults.
They are one of the causes of bad breath and are sometimes dislodged when coughing or gargling the mouth.

This is how it looks like inside the mouth where these tonsil stones are lodged.

My conspiracy theory movie

2 high value central intelligence targets are spotted in Asia.
A team of 7 Bourne operatives sent after them.
2 highly trained operatives boarded the same carrier as them, using pseudo travel documents.
5 of the other operatives continued their land support roles to organize and activate Plan B if necessary.

Knowing the destination to have 72 hours "No visa required" transit regulations, they must take action before it lands so as to prevent the targets from changing identity again and boarding another plane and shaking the trace off forever.

A H-Hour was designated, before takeoff, to ensure the targets are taken out before landing.

Remaining 5 operative received no news from the 2 Bournes onboard, 30mins after H-hour, activated Plan B.
Called for support from "conveniently" nearby battle frigate to initiate clean up operations.
Radio jamming, debris clean up, etc all done within 2-3 hours of the night.
All that was left was slick from the cleanup at dawn

No black box, no debris, mission accomplished.
Collateral damage unbeknownst to everyone else.

My Opinion of Section 377A of the Singapore Penal Code

According to Wikipedia's definition of the 377A of the Singapore Penal code, this is the summary..

Any male person who, in public or private, commits, or abets the commission of, or procures or attempts to procure the commission by any male person of, any act of gross indecency with another male person, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 2 years.

Much debate over this issue recently in Singapore.. Between gay rights activists and anti-gay(pro-377A) religious groups and its related personnel.

Family Photo CNY 2014 with the Kohs

It was not an easy task getting everyone to make time on a particular day for a family portrait.
But we did.

And it was worth the effort making time together to spend time together as a family.
