People Who Doodle Learn Faster

New research published recently shows that doodling helps you learn. In fact, say scientists, students should be encouraged to doodle while they take notes in class.

"A doodle is an unfocused drawing made while a person's attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes."

Cheating Neutrinos Jumped The Starting Gun: Physics Ref Failed To Notice

Reuters reported on Friday night that a team of Italian scientists had detected some neutrinos travelling faster than the speed of light.

As a physics student myself, my first reaction was: Hell NO. Freaking impossible.

In fact I was soon joined by many professional physicists who'd also expressed their reservations on the matter. It simply doesn't make sense.

Arthur's Day 2011

Departed to PJ at 6pm, Shaun came fetched me at 7pm. After dinner we hit the road and the traffic was so WTFFFFF we arrived at Selangor Turf Club at 10pm. 

Btw I couldn't help but notice the extremely bad Malaysian culture of not carpool-ing. Are we Malaysian made up of extremely shy or socially awkward people? There were so many cars on the road but almost every car contained only one person, or at most two. Our car contained four so I'm practising my right to blast all shitheads who'd made TRAFFIC JAM possible.

How To Make Antivenom?

Snake bite kills 100,000 people every year. Despite the fact that we started producing antivenom 100 years ago, the supply is still very limited due to the painstaking process.

To make antivenom, we would need to milk the venom first. The snake must be quarantined and monitored for weeks to months to ensure their good health.

Our Politicians--Are They Good Enough?

Americans love checking on their leaders.

Last April President Obama was forced to release his birth certificate to prove that he is indeed a born-and-bred American. Today I saw another news; Rick Perry, the current Governor of Texas who intends to run for president in 2012 got his academic transcript examined by the media, and guess what? Rick Perry is not really smart.

911: Ten Years On

It happened ten years ago and I didn't understand the significance then. Pardon my ignorance, I was just a 14 year-old boy back then. All I knew was that something terrible had happened and it's all happening in the distant land of New York, so I didn't care.

And the event led to the invasion of Afghanistan, and made Osama bin Laden the most famous Arabian to ever walked the Earth. His name resonated fear in the minds of those who feared him, and people dubbed him "The Devil Himself" for inflicting such wound upon the United States of America.

Dear God, I Know What You Did To Adam's Penis

Why God chose to create Eve out of Adam's rib instead of dust, as he made Adam, nobody knows. 
The Holy Bible says that God created Eve out of Adam's rib, and hence every male lacks a rib bone. There are people reasoned that subsequently a woman must join with a man in marriage, just as the rib returns to its place in the torso to form a perfectly symmetrical torso.

Malaysian Cameraman Killed in Humanitarian Mission to Somalia

Noramfaizul Mohamad Nor, 39, who worked as a television cameraman for the national news agency Bernama was shot dead last Friday while covering a Malaysian humanitarian aid mission in famine-hit Somalia.

I waited for three days to see whether any of my friends, the so-called future leaders of this country who seem to care so much about politics and the corrupted government and BERSIH rally and calling out to oust the current government, talk or even post the news on Facebook.

Nobody did.

Seremban Trip

Why Seremban?

Firstly: Siew Pau

Secondly: I skipped Seremban during my round-Peninsular-trip last May, so I'm making up for it.
