Light's Journey From The Sun To The Earth

The sun is the main source of energy in our solar system. The light from the sun gives us warmth, light, rain, and enables photosynthesis, which enables life. It also powers our solar panels, gives us vitamin D, and bleaches your favorite blouse. 

And when the sun finally exhausts its fuel and diesnot so fast, probably in another several billion yearsit will bring us all together with it.

Premarital Sex or Not?

Sex. What an exquisite topic.

How do you define sexual immorality/indecency anyway? Bare breasts, for instance, were socially accepted in many civilizations across the world in the past. Ancient Egyptian women wore elaborate dresses that could either cover the breasts of leave them exposed. Today, you just have to walk into your nearest museum to see explicit pictures and statues of Greek goddesses. As for man, take a look at Michelangelo's David-- exhibiting your phallus so openly isn't exactly decent by today's standard. So if bare breasts and genital-flashing were accepted as a norm in the past, how can we be sure of the exact definition of sexual immorality today? What deemed inappropriate today might not be appropriate in the next hundred years.

Anyway, excuse my random rant there.
We are often taught by our parents to avoid premarital sex. 
But why? 
Of course, religious institutions play a huge role in making sure that young, unmarried couples do not give in to the temptation of lust because, according to them, it's bad for the youngsters. And they'll follow up their claims with allegories of broken families or couples who'd committed themselves illegally in the premarital breeding program.

How Does A Spider Build Its Web Over A River?

I was walking back from lunch one day when I saw something amazing: a spider web, a HUGE spider web which spanned across a small water channel roughly two meters wide.

And nestled in the center of the web was a spider about the size of my thumb.
If that's not amazing, I don't know what is. 

How could a spider the size of my thumb travel across the two-meter wide trench to build the web?

大摇 2015 (not troll)


今年的大摇坐落在假期的最后一天。讲真的我还很担心会因为假期而冷场,因为上次校创还蛮少人的。不过后来我到达 KPS,哇塞居然满座啊啊啊啊啊。

其实 hor,我每年看完大摇就会在这个部落格写下对大摇的感言和 comment ,而且都纯属我个人意见。可是今年大摇结束后我就和其他 seniorssss 一起喝茶讨论一些些,问问他们的意见,所以这次的意见是来自至少七个 seniors 的。

还有还有,我当天其实刚刚从刁曼岛回来 -- 早上的渡轮迟到两个小时,然后还因为退潮而必须在码头两公里以外等小船来载我们到码头,然后还要驾车五个小时,到了吉隆坡立刻背着背包到 DTC 看大摇,进场时唯一的印象就是看到几个人高喊:还我苍井空................ 【awkward moment】所以前面所发生的一切我不便 comment。
