Resistant to logic

" Some people are just so resistant to logic that they cannot realistically be helped at all though, sad fact of life.."

The bearded artist who lost his beard

Maybe, it was a failed attempt. Perhaps, the idiot will try again. Growing his beard, that is.

Of artists and their beards

I once knew one who was good at growing a beard, not so much painting or drawing.

Of the gullible

It is so blatant that it is appalling that people keep falling for it again and again. Promises and more promises.
"..we should claim the right to suppress them if necessary even by force; for it may easily turn out that they are not prepared to meet us on the level of rational argument, but begin by denouncing all argument; they may forbid their followers to listen to rational argument, because it is deceptive , and teach them to answer arguments by the use of their fists or pistols..."

Vickers Venom


I wonder what might have been if the Vickers Venom had been developed further. And if there were a proper radial engine, a higher-powered one available instead of the Aquila.
I need to sleep early too. I can't be staying up late and reading.

A break!

I need an extended break!

Of AirMech, Rescue Raiders and Tower Defence


As I was learning to play AirMech last night, I was reminded of the old Rescue Raiders. If this class of games is considered Tower Defence, then Rescue Raiders must be one of the first, if not the pioneering game.


Facebook privacy

Most of my photo albums on Facebook are made public. I have done so so that you can see them.

There is much beauty in the world, in Singapore, in people, and there is also much ugliness.

Hiding and blocking in Facebook

I have hidden many people in Facebook since there is little that they post or say that is of interest to me. I have nothing against them. The link is still there.

As for blocking, I block a number of people for a variety of reasons, like some strange woman who tried to chat me up. Bizarre. Some aspiring model wanted to meet me on the same night. Doh.

I don't block enemies. Haha.
