This entry is not about what love is. It is, in fact, about teachers who try to tell me what love is.
Sounds more interesting than my class. Our teacher flashed two slides on the transparency, one with male genitals and one with female genitals

I recently had a chat with a friend about his brother who is a secondary school student. His brother excels in a certain sport, so much so that the school is willing to overlook his less than desirable test scores.
It's a painful choice having to decide between aspiration and pragmatism. You seem to place great emphasis on the disutility who would feel if he would one day be robbed of the means to live his dream.

One of the things really pisses me off is people stepping on my shoes. Unfortunately, it happens a lot more often than it should.
I bet you do that to other passengers yourself too so don't complain!
Once again, soqcrates, you are mistaken.
There are good reasons why you can't build banked tracks inside an underground tunnel. So for the individual, rather than lose your balance and step on someone's toes, why don't you take a step back first to balance yourself throughout the ride?
There are indeed times when balancing yourself is near impossible.
I have no problems balancing myself because I use my umbrella as a third point of contact with the floor if there are no handgrips within reach. But I can't help it when other people lose their balance and step on my shoes.
I can play psp and balance myself on the train with my 3 inch heels. I get up on the train at Jurong East too, it's not so bad.

In the Life!Travel section of today's Straits Times, there's an article about supposedly unexplored, exotic destinations in China for the discerning traveller. For a moment, I thought I can learn about some really cool places to visit next. Unfortunately, the article is really one big advertisement for travel agencies. What a disappointment.
So much for unexplored places for discerning tourists. Once you start getting a tour agency to do all the planning for you, then you aren't very discerning actually.
