Of Sex, pride and prejudice

First off, for the first time in history, there will be an exhibition which talks about and nothing other than......Sex

Yes, I am talking about SEXPO Singapore 2005

And of course, the news became a thread in SPUG

Now, normally, it would have been nothing more than just a few serious remarks followed by a lot of ribbing and some harebrain post.

However, the He-who-I-shall-not-name came in and start claiming that the article from Today was not quoted correctly. In fact, to a point, it becomes more an issue that the started of the thread either :

1). Choose to omit a part of the article

2). Does not know how to flip a pdf file to the next page

3). it was an inadvertent error of omission, and not of commission.

So, it all went down hill and that the whole tread got lock.

Am I surprise? hardly. I believe that this dude caused more thread to be locked up.
Am I angry with this dude? why should I? Do you get angry with babies peeing and crapping in thier diapers? no....

However, what amaze me is that, I was listening to 100.3 this morning, and they were talking about the LTA asking some people to shift out of their house within a month due to the Circle line project which rendered the building dangerous.

I notice there are some similarities between how our authorities work and how this dude operates :

1). Both are never wrong

2). They claim that it is for the greater good

3). They calculate and make sure that they will never be shortchanged. Even if it means you are, tough

4). Claiming to be open, they will brush you aside if your viewpoint is different

5). Both seems (but this dude only claimed) to had extremely stellar scholastic achievements

6). They don't really care how you feel about them

7). Will refute you to a tooth even if they have no grounds

8). There are bound to be statistics which they can quote (However, this dude might have some that is either totally irrelevant or skewered to his favour)

9). Extremely good in english but absolutely perfunctory in manners

10). Both will tell you that there are alternatives.

But for both of them, the greatest similarity happens to be a song

Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word – Elton John

What have I got to do to make you love me
What have I got to do to make you care
What do I do when lightning strikes me
And I wake to find that you're not there

What do I do to make you want me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I say when it's all over
And sorry seems to be the hardest word

It's sad, so sad
It's a sad, sad situation
And it's getting more and more absurd
It's sad, so sad
Why can't we talk it over
Oh it seems to me
That sorry seems to be the hardest word


What do I do to make you love me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I do when lightning

strikes me
What have I got to do
What have I got to do
When sorry seems to be the hardest word

Which, while our government has done well for the past 40 yrs or so, this dude managed to only lock almost every single thread if he post more than 3 times in it.

Despite the fact that there are people who dislike him.... there had been people that asked for him to be unbanned a number of time....but, many like myself are probably if it is worth the effort just so he can go about goes about ilking more people and closing more thread.

Well, I could only think of a 3 letter word that is causing all these problem......EGO

Yes, nothing more and nothing less.

So, Ego makes 1 feels that they are a balancing voice
it makes one feels that they are never wrong
Even if they are wrong, its the other people that is wrong.
Nobody is ever fair to them
and that anyone that disagree with them are all wrong

Well, I may be wrong, ignoramus, but really, I look into the mirror, and I can say that, I am not living on other good grace and that while I am wrong some time........

I am man enough to admit it.

Just wondering if that dude has cajuns enough to admit it..........................

Maybe when pig flys
